Editors' Review

Advanced Mac users, including developers, often have to enter commands to display hidden files. Show Hidden Files for Mac allows this to be accomplished with the click of a button, although this may not be necessary for experienced developers.

Show Hidden Files for Mac is available as freeware with advertisements for other programs displayed initially, but these can be disabled or enabled easily from the main drop down menu. Easy to download, the application installs and runs quickly. Its interface is simple, with buttons to hide and show files, although some advanced features could be less intuitive to the average Mac user.

The largest buttons, as would be appropriate, are for showing or hiding major hidden files. You can also specifically designate additional folders to hide or display as needed. Instructions are not available and would be helpful for the program's more-advanced features, as would product support, which is not apparent. Typically, Mac users need to use the terminal to hide or show certain files, which may be a hindrance to some people, making this program helpful. Professionals may find the steps of loading the application just as cumbersome, if not more so, than the terminal commands, rendering the program less useful. There are no additional features, but since this software is available as freeware and marketed only for a limited purpose, this is not unexpected.

While free, Show Hidden Files for Mac is of limited utility to advanced users of the Mac terminal, but would be helpful for someone with little knowledge of manually showing hidden files.
