This app certainly scratches an itch I’ve had on Mac OSX. I prefer Meld on Linux to this app but that is mostly because of the integration in to file managers like Nautilus and Nemo. If this app had a Finder Service that allowed you to select two files in finder and right click to select Compare Files, that would make it a five star app.

The worst

90% of the files it shows as different are not at all different. looking for something comparable to the simple, and FREE, winmerge for Mac. This tool is *not* it...

Good app

I loved WinMerge on windows and wanted something that worked as well on the Mac. If you like WinMerge you will like CompareMerge. Great software. Thank you.

Used to be a life saver

If you have lots of files like 1 or 2 TB, you have to wait, so be patient. I looked through all the other utilities and this one had the best reviews. It turned out to be a good choice and did not freeze up on me. I like the way it references the right or left side of the windows so you can eaisly tell which folder has folders have identical or left right only. It is worth the $4.99.

Great compare app! Just what I needed!

This app works great. I would love to see a visual indicator for the characters that are different between the files, not just a highlight of the lines in yellow. Otherwise this works perfect for me! ****Update May 20, 2013***** Latest update says it now shows the exact text difference but I can't find this anywhere. Due to the lack of this feature working, I knocked my rating down to 3 stars. This app is great for lightweight comparisons but it really needs text difference highlights - it is a real pain to read lines of code trying to find the one value or maybe just character that has changed. If this is added to the app (and works) then this app would be very useful.

Have yet to see it actually work!

Simple text file comparison locks up the app until it consumes all your computers memory to where you have to shut it down. After several attempts I had no choice but to kiss my $4.99 goodbye and just delete the app!!!

Source code lifesaver!

TN Road Warrior's Review of Comparemerge

Reviewed on 3/10/20 1:43 PM

I use this app all of the time. It saves so many possible bugs by allowing me to make quick comparisions between projects and builds. I would *love* the additional option for comparisons to ignore “whitespace” (as those differences don’t really matter in code) and it would make comparing these types of files quicker. Overall, I am very pleased with this purchase!

very slow

The tool did not finish comparing 2 1.2 MB text files in 5 minutes (while reading data from SSD on 2013 MacBook Pro). Otherwise it works OK on smaller files.
