FAQs

Is my data getting logged or sent anywhere?

DevUtils.app works entirely offline, the only internet usage is for Auto Update, which you can disable if you want to.

The app's debug logs are written to ~/Library/Caches/DevUtils/*.json, which is used to investigate issues (i.e. app's bugs). This is disabled by default and can be enable in Preferences.

Can I get a refund?

There is a 7-days money back guarantee, no questions asked. However, I do love to hear your feedback. Please send a refund request to me [email protected] I'll process as soon as I can.

Can I get a refund on VAT?

The price you see may or may not include VAT based on your country. If you have already purchased, please contact [email protected] with your VAT information and receipt number.

I have already bought the app but lost it (e.g. change PC), do I need to buy it again?

If you have already bought the app and want to download it again, please use Restore Purchase.

Can I give a copy of the app to my friend?

I really appreciate it if you don't do that. You can share the app's website so your friend can purchase from there. Selling the pre-built app is the only source of revenue for me to develop this app. Thank you very much for your support! If your friend cannot afford the app and cannot build it from source, please send me an email I'll be happy to provide a promo code.

How do I report a bug?

For now, please report send to my email [email protected] I'll reply as soon as I can.

What are the open-source projects this app uses?

Please see the acknowledgments.

I don't see the right click menu "Inspect with DevUtils.app" as shown in the demo.

It may be burried in a long list of services you are having in your mac. Following these steps to enable it:

  1. Open System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts (tab) > Service (on the left sidebar)
  2. Find "Inspect with DevUtils.app" item in the list, usually placed under the "Text" group
  3. Check the checkbox to enable it and optionally set your own service hotkey (default is \)

With this enabled, you can now select a text from any app and activate DevUtils using the hotkey \ or Right click > Services > Inspect with DevUtils.app.
