    Even though you can't really use it unless you authorize it, you can see the contents by opening up the IPA file with WinRAR.

    u go to where the apps are located (i forget where they are located, but it will say it in itunes)
    u change the .ipa to .zip and then double click the file
    it will bring up the extracted files and you can see them

    Quick question - is it possible to change the file extension to .rar rather than .zip?

    You dont even have to change it. Just right click and Open With, then pick winrar.
