iPatch is an application that allows Mac users to easily create patches for their resources. It features a simple and convenient functionality powered by a smart file comparison method. All it requires is selecting the original and modified applications and iPatch will automatically detect changes. With this tool, developers can save the time otherwise spent on manually creating updates.

The utility has an intuitive and simple to use graphic interface. iPatch allows you to edit the selected application description and credits, complete with control over the colors and fonts used. iPatch compares the two input files using the MD5 hash algorithm. Once the application detects the modified files, users can specify which will be integrated into the newly created update. iPatch supports the addition of scripts as well as special files within separate manager tabs.

iPatch is a tool aimed at all Mac application developers. The utility makes it considerably easier to create standalone patches and updates by detecting changed files and offering a simple environment for writing down the patch notes. However, all these patches are available for outdated Mac OS versions.
