Doesnt work

Tried opening a file using the app, it didnt work! Dont name your app “Open Any Files…” if it wont open any files!

How do I uninstall this app?

I want to remove this app like yesterday!

Needs a different name

This app doesn’t “Open Any File.” Great name tho!

Doesn’t work.

What a surprise, it doesnt work, wont open any of my pics or files……..

Terrible app… one of the worst ever.

This a full app, is not a fast file opener, extractor or viewer, as it shoul be. It takes long to start the program and its slow. It takes full authority over every single file type in the computer, no questions ask, and it even becomes default app for all files just by installing it! I dind’t even open the app once and it already srew with my computer changing all file images! Therefore decided to uninstall it and even then it was hard, it froze my computer for a good 4 minutes before I could finally uninstall it, looks super fishy like some kind of malicius software to be honest (which is for free). Terrible app… one of the worst i’ve ever tried in my life! I don’t recommend to anyone!

Annoying

This app keeps popping up every time I download something and it’s annoying the heck out of me. I cannot uninstall it either so basically I’m stuck with this obnoxious app forever. Do not download!

Never An Issue

I have used this App for some time now and have found it very useful for opening a variety of file types not recognized by my computer.

fails to open

this app cannot open .hus files

REALLY?

Can’t be better so far!

The Instant I opened this in my Mac…...

Malwarebytes Quarantined it. I suspect some problem exists there. :(

It’s like a VIRUS I CAN’T REMOVE IT!!!!!

Used a little momento the app, and then when tried to remove it from my apps, i was surprise because I Can’t!! nothing works to uninstall this app

I have had quite a few challenges over my career(s) regarding opening & extracting data from many types of file formats. So far, “Open Any Files”, has been very user friendly and handles a variety of different formats. This is an early review, but my experience with this package is very positive. I will follow up with another review after more experience.

not worth the effort

Requies installation of a virus scan which I will not do. Didnt see this as a requirement, maybe I didnt look hard enough.

really stupid app

don’t waste your time. if you doin’t have an app to open a specific file type, this one won’t help either.

Can’t delete

I can’t remove this app and it overtakes some of my applications especially Quicktime. Support doesn’t have a page anymore.

Does it have an adware?

After installing this, I was not able to open jar file as I did. It led me to instal Dr. Antivirus.

This app is malware

It takes over your preferences and only opens pics, videos, etc with itself. It’s also a pain to remove. The positive reviews are bogus. My advice: Run. Run away. You don’t want this.

Couldn’t open .dms file

Couldn’t open .dms extension file.

So far it does what it is intended for. I like the update. Much more convenient. No drag and drop

A very good tool

simple but powerful! stable and smart!

Devoid of any “EXTRAS,” fills a void Effectively.

Not to its disqualification in any way, I suppose I was hoping for an app that proffered a greater depth of capability. As it is, this program does fill some basic voids that allow for a quick access. Basically, the program does work as advertised.

Chief HR Officer

This app came out of no where. I’ve used it a few times to open a video that would probably opened anyway. After reading other reviews I’m veery concerned that this app will take over my computer and cause me a ton of problems. How in the world to I get it out of my computer??????

IT WORKS

It is so great to view video from the internet downloaded , that is in a formate Apple can’t handle- this great app can do it. Finally somethng works hustle free !!! Thanks

Great Product

Always opens files. Fast. Works well.

Awesome

At almost 70 years old, I am only fairly computer literate. I opened the app store to see what I might be able to use to open some old files. Of course the page was full. I just selected what had the best ratings with a lot of reviews and really lucked out. I had some very old files up to 13 years old-a few of which were zipped; mainly MS Word docs, which I couldn’t open on a very old backup (at least 8 years old). This app suggested Dr. Unarchiver, which worked perfectly. They both installed rapidly on my Mac. So for my purpose, I was relieved both at how easy they were to use (just drage and drop) and how they didn’t mess up my operating system.

Malware.

My normally fast and responsive MacBook Pro Late 2017 became slow and heated up very quickly not long after I downloaded this app. I scanned my system with a malware detector and it was found that this app is a “Fake File Opener”. Fishy.

Easy to Use

The easiest file reader ever! This app opened.mp4 files in a Mac OS High Sierra in a flash. To open a file, I just dragged a file onto the box and voila, it opened the file. The speed with which it opened an .mp4 file was like clicking on a link that opens a new page. Highly recommended.

HOW DO I REMOVE THIS ???

It has taken captive my files and I cannot save them to my computer. There are no instructions how to remove this app and I am totally frustrated you take control of my downloads!!

It Works without a Hassle

I have been frustrated for many years when downloading various kinds of files in audio and video that were not playable on my Mac. I now have the top of the line iMac with the largest memory, solid state memory, the fastest processor and High Sierra 11.13 but I have still had my issues with unplayable audio and video files. Open Any File: RAR appeared in my dock so I gave it a whirl and voila!- instant translation of the file (m4v) to a playable format. If it works likes this with all my other audio/video files I am sold!

App Infected With OS X.FAKEFILEOPENER Malware

When I run a scan with Malwarebytes, it reports that the App is infected with OSX.FakeFileOpener. DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP.

Tired of app hijacking default launch settings

This app may have its uses, but I have to delete it until the developer figures out how to make his app launch a file type ONCE without globally binding the app to all similar file types. In other words, the app should just open a file temporarily without becoming the permanent default app for all such file types. Setting binding preferences should be the user’s prerogative (using the Get Info window to specify “Open with” as a one-time option, or “Change All” to set a default app system-wide). If a user has these options, then so does the developer.

GREAT APP

This app opened my file called “file.dat” when other apps could not open this file. The coders on this app know what they are doing. Thanks for making a great app.

i don’t trust this APP!

First off i dont even know how this app got onto my computer. RED FLAG! i looked at the date it managed to get installed on my computer which was 18 days prior to me writing this review. i have NEVER SEEN THIS APP PRESENT ITSELF TO ME for me to consider if i wanted to download it which makes me think this is MALWARE of sorts. Secondly when trying to open up an installer to software i i own it would get in the way of the Installer opening but rather “add any file”?…!? this is the first time ive seen the app and at first thought it was part of Red Giant (software company) in some way. i researched this app and deemed that its somewhat suspicious. i deleted it and low and behold the Red Giant Installer opened as it should. Screw this app and whoever has created it. at minimun it has proven to have interfered with my installations process at who know what other more problematic things it may have installed on my machine which at this point…i cant know. my advice…STEER CLEAR!!!!

Opens what files again??

So, this app is supposed to open any file, right? Guess again. I had a number of files that I haven’t been able to open, and this was a suppested app to do the job. The most it did was show me the file path (which I already know, since it’s on my computer), and the option to show the file in the finder, which is senseless since you have to drag and drop form a saved location anyways. I found this to be a waste of time, so I deleted the app, and along with it, the files I had been trying to open. So much for another suggested app that is useless.

Five Five Stars

Just like it’s name, OPEN ANY FILES from A to Z. Thanks guys

Not for opening all types of files

I installed this to extract a .rar file on a mac. After installing the program and attemting to open the .rar file, it said that I need to open another program that I simply could have opened in the first place.

How do I delete this app?

Can someone tell me how to delete this app? None of my downloads will open now that I installed Open Any Files app.

malware beware

malware beware apple please screen app store to be trusted source...

problem

i inistalled this app and played different videos but at all of them by couple of minutes this error occurred “your system has ran out of application memory" whereas only this application was opened!i should say that my mac is fully updated and my laptop model is mpxq2 and paid 1300$ recently for it!!

Corrupted Dr. Cleaner Pro

I contacted tech support and they advised me that something may have corrupted my copy Dr. Cleaner Pro. I was instructed how to delete and reinstall my copy of Dr. Cleaner Pro and in about 2 to 3 minutes I was up and running again. Thank you tech support! I really love your products! Daniel A Gross

Malware Bytes Identified this as a Virus / Malware!!!

Malwarebytes for Mac showed this to be a fake file opener and removed it. Beware.

Should be removed from the App Store

this application should be removed from the App Store. It takes over the file mappings of other apps. There are many warning reviews about how this app mis behaves. I had to do a web search to find out about the app and remove it.

Wow

I have a music file from an old computer that I could not open with ANYthing. This opened it right up, which will make me eternally grateful to this app (original music, no copy, composed for me by old friends). I confess I have not yet even tried to open any other things to see if Open Any File took them over. But for just letting me hear this song again, it was so worth it!! THANK YOU, Developers!

very useful

I loike this program it is easy to use and I have had no problems with it at all. Very happy.

Really Useful

This really helps with how messed up mac mail is with .dat files. I only wish that it integrated with some mail apps like spark

Plays .mkv files

Plays .mkv files! This app makes using the internet much more bearable if you’ve got a laptop.

“OPEN ANY FILES” SOFTWARE IS A LIFESAVER!

DON’T KNOW HIW THIS “OPEN ANY FILES” SOFTWARE WAS ADDED TO MY COMPUTER; BUT, THE POP-UP BOX ANNOYED ME UNTIL I DROPPED A FILE AND WAITED A SHORT MOMENT…. THEN….AWESOME!!!!!! I'M SOOOOOO GRATEFUL TO HAVE IT AND NOW KNOW HOW TO USE IT!!!!!!! BLESSINGS AND GRATITUDE TO THE TECHIES WHO MADE THIS POSSIBLE WITHOUT MY EVEN KNOWING IT!!!! THIS GRANNY NEEDED THREE WMA FILES TO PLAY FOR A MEMORIAL SERVICE AND I COULD NOT FIGURE OUT WHY THEY WOUD NOT PLAY ON MY MAC, NOR COULD I FIGURE OUT HOW TO CONVERT THEM. THANK YOU TO ALL TECHIES WHO HAD A PART IN THIS CUSTOMER SATISFACTION, WHEN I NEEDED IT MOST!!!!! NOW THAT I READ THE REVIEWS BELOW, I PRAY YOU DEVELOPERS HAVE CORRECTED THOSE “TAKE OVER” PROBLEMS. IF THAT HAPPENS TO ME, AS MUCH AS I LOVED USING IT TONIGHT, I WILL DELETE THIS APP IMMEDIATELY!

Great software

I have used this for many different files of various kinds and it always works. What more can be said.

Malware Bytes 3.2.36 considers this malicious software

It was immediately Quarantined to protect my system. Software Developer should note!

Agree With Previous Reviews

I agree with some of the previous reviews that the app takes over and becomes the default method for opening certain types of files. Although useful, the developers really need to correct this or I will have to uninstall it.
