Visibility for Mac

Visibility IconI just released Visbility, a simple Mac application that makes showing and hiding invisible files easy, via Midwestern Mac, LLC.

I created this app for three reasons:

  1. I'd never programmed in Objective-C before, so I wanted to test the waters.
  2. I wanted to go through the process of submitting an App to the Mac App Store (crossing my fingers as to whether I would be able to get the App approved or not).
  3. I wanted an easier (and less buggy) way to show invisible files in the Finder on my Macs.

In the past, I've used a few different AppleScripts to show or hide files in the Finder, and they were all lacking in some way or another—one would lock up sometimes, another would take two or three clicks to get the files to show or hide again, etc.

Visibility is very fast (startup, toggle, and quit), looks nice, and runs on 10.6 Snow Leopard.

Alas, it was rejected from the App Store for changing Finder preferences... but that's okay—now it's a free app for all to enjoy! Check out Visibility—the easiest way to show invisible files on a Mac.
