Disabling GateKeeper (OSX) for a Single App

If you have an app that won't run on OSX (you get an error about it being "damaged" and it suggests that you should delete it), you can disable GateKeeper for that app by running the following command in a terminal:

xattr -rd com.apple.quarantine "path/to/file"

Of course, before you go this route, make sure you trust the app! GateKeeper exists for a reason.
