I'm trying to open a new app that I downloaded on OS X Yosemite 10.10. Specifically, it is Android Studio.app version 0.8.13.

When I open it, I see the following dialog "Verifying Android Studio.app...":

enter image description here

The progress bar has been at 100% for about 10 minutes and it hasn't gone away. Granted, this app is rather large at about 25gb of SDK that needs to be included in the directory.

How do I get passed this dialog?

The answer seemed to be to move the very large SDK out of the /Applications/Android Studio.app directory, then launch Android Studio, quit Android Studio, and move the sdk directory back into the /Applications/Android Studio.app directory.

After doing that, the Android Studio app launched fine.

Just wait longer for the verification process to complete.

I had a similar situation with a 300 mb .app file. I would get [Verifying "name_of_app.app"...], the percentage bar would be at 100% and it would hang for minutes. I assumed there was a problem and came across your question while looking for an answer. In the end I just left my MBP (mid-2010) alone for a few hours, came back and it was done verifying. I recreated the conditions again and roughly timed it. For a 300 mb .app file it took about 20 min to completely verify.

I was tempted to disable the verification using the process described here but waiting it out worked in this case.

Happy waiting.
