Verify Downloads by Hash
Hash/Check is a simple app to verify downloaded files by hash. That's it. That's the app.
Not a whole lot new in this version. Found a few things that were bugging me, and as this is just a side project - I fixed them! For one, why just Green and Red for good hash/bad hash? Seems a bit holiday specific or may traffic light specific. So this update adds a Blue/Orange or Brown/Purple option! Also really kinda small, but the "File Location" path now shows a tiny icon of what kind of Mac you're using (thank you SF Symbols!), including the Trash Can Mac if you're still running with that beast. Um... What else... There is still a few UI refresh bugs that I can't seem to quite track down yet, but I'll get there. Anyway, be kind, be nice, be good.
Ratings and Reviews
I've never used a tool like this before. Very easy. I downloaded qBittorrent and before opening the installer I dragged the image to Hash/Check and the app automatically copied the checksum from my clipboard and highlighted if there was a match or not. (make sure to highlight and copy (ctrl-c) the checksum you want to check against before dragging the downloaded image your checking into this app.
Program refuses to quit and cannot be accessed from MacOS Force Quit. Performs operations using the CPU even when not attempting to hash a file. Beware!
Developer Response ,
** Update: yes, it has been a while, a whole year! So the issue was if you have a Very Large File™ in your downloads folder (such as having just downloaded Xcode) the app would try to create hashes of said Very Large File™ and would beachball due to ... well, not having implemented the app using modern async/multithreading techniques. Well, you're in luck as Version 2.0 has fixed the Beachball of Doom. Yay!
