Default App is a Mac OS 8 utility that allows you to open documents matching certain file/creator types with the applications you specify, instead of the applications that created those documents.

For instance, Default App can be configured so that when you double-click a SimpleText document in the Finder, it gets opened in a more powerful text editor, like Style or Tex-Edit Plus.
Or you can have Script Editor compiled scripts opened with Script Debugger.
Or Internet Explorer documents opened with HTML Viewer. Well, you get the idea.

Please notice that unlike many other shareware programs, you won't receive any registration number or unlock code after registering Default App, because there are no annoying reminder windows to disable.
