Ratings and Reviews


Great Total Commander alternative!

I was looking for a Total Commander alternative for Mac, but most of the apps out there are crap.
This is a surprise, and a great, nice looking native Mac app!
Keep up the good work.


Don’t waste your money

I needed a better file manager than finder to move/rename files/folders, etc. so I bought this program. The first time I ran it, it crashed. When I finally got it to run, the panes are stuck (by default) in library/containers/pl.ewas.Crax/data and any time you try to change directories you have to click a button to allow system access. Assuming you get this far, you start to get error messages like “You must override listElements:errorRes: in a subclass”. I’ve gone back to using finder, I hate it, but it works.

Don’t buy this!!!!!!!!!


Updates brings pain and sometimes relief

last update (17.1.2016):

still cannot open external drives/mounted partitions until restarting CRAX (this bug is introduced in udate few months ago…)

former update :

Crax non stop dies/bugs IT LOOKS SOLVED
filter doesn’t work (if you have multiple tabs) SOLVED
went crazy with bug AfpAccessDenied introduced in previous update SOLVED

sometime it selects wrong file… shows one when copy copies another, maybe should force refresh (problem with previous version have not reproduced it with last one)
why don’t you add two filter boxes for each side? be better than pathfinder SOLVED (now you use same box with values according to selected side, good)

it would be nice that F3 opens viewer according to extension (view on jpg should preview picture not HEX data)

Lates update (2015 11 17) brings problems with External drives. sometimes you cannot opet folder on it. Also it lost all Toolbar settings.

Price $24 is crazy if after evry update you get new problems :(
