SoftoBe on Tuesday released iPassepartout 1.0, a Mac OS X application that lets you view and manipulate the content and data in a list of files.
Drag a folder onto iPassepartout, and you get a list of all the files the folder contains. You can click on the items of the list and see the content of the file in a window. iPassepartout works with TXT, RTF, RTFD, HTML, PDF, JPG, PNG, TIFF, PICT, ICNS, BMP, Photoshop, GIF, TGA, MP3, AIF. WAV, MPG, MOV, AVI and other formats. You can play, select and copy movies and songs; see, crop and copy graphics; read, select, search and copy text; see HTML and PDF documents; see the icons embedded within applications; copy the files to a different location; delete the files from a disk; and more.
There are three ways to search for files and populate the found item list: a Simple Search, an Expert Search and a List Drop items. Simple and Expert searches allow you to search the files within a given folder or disk using different criteria and options such as filename, content, creation and modification date, type and creator, invisible items and more.
iPassepartout requires Mac OS X 10.2.2 or higher and costs US$35. A lite version, that manages only text files, is available for $20.
