Ratings and Reviews
File/Folder handling is just bad
Whle it does view an array of file types, getting to your files is frustrating at best. You are constantly forced to traverse it's file handling scheme which is very poorly designed. Hit the home button, start looking for directories that have files, pray that you don't select a folder with no 'readable' files, for it will petulantly refuse to go any further. It truly needs a complete redesign of it's interface to be of any real use. It stubbornly refuses to make/load thumbnails except in the rarest of circumstances. All in all, not a very good purchase. It's just too hard to get where you need to go to view the files/photos/videos etc.
Developer Response ,
thanks for your feedback. You don't have to pray while using Phiewer. The Pro version supports in newer versions also navigation through subfolders.
Thumbnails Don't Generate
The only time the sidebar thumbnails generated for me was the VERY FIRST TIME I opened the program. Thereafter all I see are black squares. There is no way of contacting the developer directly, and the "support" page you're led to also has no way to submit bugs.
With the deprecation of 32 bit support, my years-long use of the classic "Just Looking" app was no longer an option and I was seeking a replacement. Phiewer provides that basic animated gif viewing functionality, but its refusal to display thumbnails and its constant nagging you to allow access every time you open a new folder (even though I gave it full disk access in System Preferences) are annoyances that need to be addressed by the developer.

Hi Voenix Rising,
thanks for your feedback. In former versions file operations in the background where not recognized by Phiewer. If you have opened a folder all thumbs get cached. If then something happens in the background, like renaming or moving files. Phiewer was not aware of that.
But this is fixed in newer versions. You can also just hit the reload button to refresh the thumbs manually.
Just What I Wanted
I needed a simple slideshow viewer that didn't force me to make a video, and Phiewer Pro is it. I also wanted a program that would display the file name, and Phiewer Pro not only displays it but lets you choose the size and place it anywhere on the screen. Lastly, I wanted a program that would automatically play videos in the slideshow stream, and again Phiewer Pro does it. If I was forced to complain, I'd say the display size options aren't clear, but a little experimentation cleared up the confusion. Great program, thank you!
