I understand VD seems abandoned but I'm the only developer and at this time my life requires other priorities, I love VD, it was created at first for myself and when I realized other people could appreciate it I published on MAS for few bucks

I'm the only developer, I'm the project owner and I have no time so releasing as open source sounds good but not for me, nobody buys a so specific application, occasional users don't buy apps

Actually, I think this app would be a good candidate for open source, as others may make contributions, given that you have little time. If you make it open source, I might be interested in trying to extend it to compare names and lengths of extended resources with a checkbox next to "Check Resource Fork", especially if the app is written in Swift. I might even explore the idea in ticket 358 (Proposal for Efficient Compare over network) as well.
