HextEdit is a fast and lightweight hex editor for viewing and editing binary data. Quickly edit virtually any file type at a low level in a simple and native app.

Key Features

* Byte inspector
Edit bytes as little or big endian signed or unsigned integers, floats, or doubles. View values as binary, decimal, or hexadecimal numbers.
