Customer Reviews of the Compare App

Solid diff app

Easy to use. Simple yet robust. I needed something out of the box that I could quickly view and edit two files at once. This did the trick.

Minimal functionality, deficient in many ways

Mac Coder's Review of Compare

Apple’s own free FileMerge or opendiff from Terminal is much more superior in many ways. There’s no ‘next difference’ movement support. There’s no easy way to copy/paste. There’s no setting for file-type specific handling. FileMerge is also dificient in many ways. I was looking for an app that improves on FileMerge but found the even more dificient Compare.

Needs updating

It's an okay diff tool. But it could be a lot better with just some small changes, including bug fixes. Unfortunately updates are not happening. The app has not been updated since Jan 2012.

Great App - I'll get a lot of use out of this

Perfect for diffing directories and the contents of the directiories. The interface was intuitive. I loaded up my directories and instantly saw the differences, I doble-clicked on a file to compare the files individually and hit the arrow key to merge/move files across. Easy to use, very helpful!

Generic looking but good at what it does

Dora-An's Review of Compare

I wanted a compare tool which looked familiar and easy to learn, i mean no crazy colored balloons on each side, and this app fit the bill just fine. It has no menus to open files but to open files with buttons and drag to icon both worked OK and the way it switched between comparing files in directories and comparing lines in files is very handy. I had to compare and update a rather large number of files (more than 100 small text files) and had no problems.

Copy function making application "not responding"

During Copy Function, application appears to stall ("not responding"). Sometimes the copy of files/folders completes, sometimes not where a force quit is needed. This application should have a progress bar instead of spinning busy icon (beach ball) so that end user does not intrepret as a application crash.

Waste of Money-crashes constantly

It won't open an 25,000 line CSV file. Constant crashing.

a good start, but needs some help

a perfect example of the kind of app the App Store is supposed to provide, and, a really great start. I needed to compare the contents of two very large directories, and it helped me do that quickly. I also wanted to merge the contents of those two directories, though, and I couldn't figure out which button would do that. It would be great if you had help bubbles pop up when the user hovered over a button.

Do you know how to integrate this with GitBox?

Not bad, maybe better than FileMerge

This is better than FileMerge because you can move changes on the left to the right and vice versa, but it's lacking inline editing of the files, like Beyond Compare for Windows
