ArchiChect – check any app, bundle or file for 64-bit compatibility, signatures, notarization, and quarantine
Updated! Drag and drop, or Open, almost any app, bundle, command tool, Installer package, even signed AppleScripts and regular documents, and ArchiChect will tell you whether its quarantine flag is set, if it contains executable code whether that is fully 64-bit, whether it has a valid signature, and whether it has been notarized, delivered by the App Store, or signed by Apple. The ultimate tool for checking Catalina compatibility, and much more. Version 2.4 requires 10.14 or later and provides full details of Universal Apps and binaries too.

32-bitCheck – checks installed apps, code bundles, command tools and more for those which are 32-bit
32-bitCheck is a much better tool for checking which apps and other software are still 32-bit. Check the folders of your choosing, and can check just apps, or all bundles including plugins and other executable code. Generates text reports to help you prepare your Mac for macOS 10.14 later this year. Why waste time and effort using System Information? New version 1.8 can resize text and checks for updates automatically. See also ArchiChect below for simple drag-and-drop checking.
