    After adding two other features I changed the app type from free to paid but I set a trial period of 15 days so a user can try it a lot before either buying or uninstalling it...

    Any suggestion will be really appreciated both about UI and app features...

    Now the app does:

    1) md5 and sha256 file checksum check
    2) md5, sha256 hash generation
    3) files comparing based on md5, sha1, sha256 file hash

    Thanks :)

    Sounds like the old Unix Tripwire program. I think that there was a Windows version. Aahh getting old can't quite remember.

    Some suggestions:
    You probably don't want the checksums stored in a way that any program can modify it. For example if a virus wanted to change / replace a file, then all they would need to do is calc the new checksum and update your file.

    Can you hook the event that is thrown when a file changes so that there is real time monitoring?
