Confusion at first

It works, and does more than I expected! That's the good news, and more than enough to get it to three stars. The problem I ran into was that the opening screen asked me to sign up for their news letter. I could find no way to click it away without subscribing! ...however... I selected the window underneath--they had opened it before overlaying it with the ad for their newsletter--and the window came up just fine. After that the ad disappeared. It also didn't show up after that first opening. So. It works just fine after you defeat the ad.

AV Software Indigestion

Its frustrating that I have to disable parts of my ”protection” in order to install & use this software! Even though it came from the Apple App Store and in system preferences I have marked that it is OK to trust downloads from the App Store! I am tempted to go back to PCs - Windows gets hit much more often with ‘Malware’ but I have a geat deal more control!!! Personally I am willing to put in the extra effort to regain control. (I may have to once again have a small LAN with both Apple & MicroSoft OS)

Not really good enough

It won't actually allow you to *open* any file. It shows you what installed apps *could* open the file, but there doesn't seem to be any way to go ahead and choose to open the file with that app, so you've got to quit Open Any File, find the file, right-click on it, and then choose the app to open it with. Which I could have done to begin with.
