Receipt QuickLook Plugin

This quick look plugin provides a way to visualize cryptographic receipt generated by the App Stores (iOS and OS X). This is quite useful for iOS application as there is no way to visualize them on the device.

How to build ?

Open the project with Xcode and hit the build button. The project generates a QuickLook bundle named ReceiptQuickLook.qlgenerator.


Once the QuickLook bundle is generated:

  • copy it under the ~/Library/QuickLook/ folder for a user-wide use.
  • copy it under the /Library/QuickLook/ folder for a system-wide use. You may need to authenticate in order to copy the bundle.

Then, open a Terminal window and type qlmanage -r in order to rebuild the QuickLook plugin database.

You may also install the plugin as a cask via brew cask install receiptquicklook.

How to use ?

Like any other QuickLook plugin, go in the Finder, select a receipt file and press the space key.

Inspecting iOS receipt

In order to inspect iOS receipt, you have to:

  • Open the Xcode organizer window.
  • Select the device where your application is installed, then the Applications item.
  • Select the application and below the sandbox area, click on the download button. This will save a bundle with the xcappdata extension containing all the files from the application's sandbox.
  • In the Finder, right-click on the sandbox bundle and select Show Package Contents.
  • Go to the AppData/StoreKit folder and select the receipt file; press the space key.
  • Et Voilà !
