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)
Annoying and Aggravating So Far
I installed this maybe a month or more ago and it has some cool features, such as showing you what apps are compatible w/certain file formats. But ultimately it's become more a hindrance and an impairment to my MacOS, seemingly acting like a go-between for any file I open (mostly video file formats). Oftentimes, I simply want to double-click to open any file I want, and have it open using whatever file I want anytime I want, with whatever is configured as the default app to open it. Instead, I just get a stupid Open Any File Window with no way to view the media I'm trying to open. It's like slapping me in the face with a dead fish and exclaiming, "Hey! Here is one or more apps that can open that type of file", and then it stops there. Nothing else to do, no option to open the Media you double-clicked on, UNLESSSSSSS you're willing to let it open using an app you haven't yet downloaded instead of the app you already have, that you previously and still have listed as default!! Aggravating. Will likely uninstall soon.
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.
