chmod-fu for iOS

Just want to share with you that I published my first app on App Store, chmod-fu.

It will help you with calculating the octal value for manipulating file permissions using the chmod command which is typically found on Unix and Linux systems. It's also a good tool for deciphering an octal value.

I re-wrote the BlackBerry 10 version of the app to iOS. Below you'll find two screen shots from the iOS app:

Main view where you can manipulate and see the relation between individual bits and the octal value.

It's also possible to share the octal value with others directly from within the app.


  1. Please make it available for the BlackBerry Passport, it works as is it right now. I was able to install it restoring from a backup of my previous Z10 but if I need to wipe the phone then I won't be able to reinstall it. So please make it compatible and / or available.

  2. Done!

    Thanks for pointing it out.

    My other apps was already updated but it seems like I've missed out chmod-fu.

    Anyway, glad you enjoy it or hope it will be available soon!
