    Um ... what? There's no such thing as an .app file. .app is the extension of the directories that contain applications themselves.

    I see, lol... How do I edit the main application files? I see a lot of squares and random jiberish.

    Thanks mindfield, sorry about that one.. I'm pretty dense when it comes to programming!

    you can't edit them unless you have the source for them.

    I'm not sure what you mean by edit them. Do you mean hack/reprogram them? If so, without the source code there's no useful way to do that. If you want to program stuff, then there's a lot to learn, starting with this C programming tutorial site. If you can wrap your head around that, then you're ready to start learning.
