Software utilizes Quick Look to explore apps
atPurpose has launched a new iPhone development tool, atPeek 1.0. The software is designed for professionals, but said to be simple enough for casual users. Through Apple's Quick Look architecture, it explores and displays fully-functional previews of the resources found in iPhone apps. The tool can discover normally inaccessible details, and export specific assets or entire folders for follow-up viewings.
The program supports installation of customized Quick Look plug-ins to extend capabilities. It can identify duplicate assets, and root out unnecessary or extraneous components.
atPeek requires Mac OS X 10.6, and correspondingly an Intel processor. Licenses cost $5 for a single user, or $10 for five.
