[prMac.com] Stockholm, Sweden – Sandkorn from Peter Borg Apps is a new and easy to use utility that shows you which of your macOS apps that are sandboxed. It also shows you what entitlements those apps have.
A sandbox is an access control technology for macOS. Many apps are restricted in a sandbox – all new Mac App Store apps are – but it is hard to know what those restrictions are for each app. And it is even harder to get an overview of all your apps. But Sandkorn helps you with that.
By using Sandkorn you can now in a simple way see what apps have no restrictions at all or, for instance, are limited to accessing your contacts or some particular folder.
Sandkorn checks for apps and executables within each folder in the Folders sidebar, by default it includes the Applications and Utilities folders. It doesn’t check subfolders, so you have to add each subfolder that you want to be included by using the plus sign at the bottom or Add Folder in the File menu.
For each app that it finds, Sandkorn tries to find any other executables within that app bundle, for instance plugins and XPC services. And then it looks for all entitlements that those use.
In Sandkorn you can see the information either by listing the apps or by a list of each entitlement used by your apps. In that way you can both check a specific app if you are curious about that and also check a specific entitlement if, for instance, you want to see what apps can use the camera.
