Apparently you should not drag the app to the launchpad, instead, drag the app to the application folder (open a finder window), or just do a $ cp /from /to. So the process is: Open DMG (it mounts) Drag .app (and possibly other files) to your "Applications" folder Unmount/Eject the DMG Ctrl+click (right-click) to "open" so you can approve the app

I suspect that the Clock application is code-signed, which is likely what is causing the crash. I tried to do the same LSUIElement change in the plist file to Clock.app and it gave the same crash. Some research told me the following: There's one more step to the process if the developer has signed the application with an Apple Developer Certificate — ...

You will need to use a computer with 10.6 (snow leopard) or earlier if you want to run that software on a Mac. Maybe a friend has an older computer you can borrow. Or maybe it will work on a computer lab machine. Other Options: 1) Try running it on a Windows PC (I'm guessing backwards compatibility will be better) 2) Virtual Machine. It looks like Snow ...

This is very tricky. From 10.6.6 (when Apple released the Mac App Store), the App Store has been pretty deeply built in to the system. You can see this by the fact that if you click on the  in your Menu Bar, there is an option to launch the App Store from there. In later versions of OS X it is even more deeply embedded as software updates for the OS are ...

The closest analog I know of for general purpose document organizing in an "everything box" similar to iPhoto/iTunes would be Yojimbo. http://www.barebones.com/products/Yojimbo/ It lets you catalog and organize information in quite powerful ways. Also check out Evernote if you want files to be in the cloud and don't already use a service for syncing. ...

If you're managing a lot of PDFs, I like Papers. It's intended for researchers to manage research papers. I've found it handy for managing other sorts of documents. It lets you specify plenty of metadata, organize documents into collections, and take notes about your documents. It also sounds like you could use a great primer on using the Finder. ...

The red shield indicates that you broke your personal record for one of the half dozen or so records the app automatically keeps track of, like “Fastest 5K Run” or longest run. A number badge indicates that you broke more than one record in that run. (One often breaks longest and furthest run records at the same time, for instance.) So, nice run!

This may help to determine which app(s) are the culprit. In iTunes, I clicked on the "Apps" icon at the top left, then on "App Store" at the top, then on "Purchased" on the right hand side", then on "Not in My Library". And, lo and behold, in my case there were some apps that had the iCloud symbol, i.e., that were not present locally in my apps library. I ...

We recently released a new app that is dedicated to importing data from CSV (comma separated value) data files which covers many formats of exported data from existing apps. It will allow you to import data from apps that have an export feature, but are not yet integrated into HealthKit / Health App. If this is a feature you are still curious about, ...

After a bit of research (in the stores themselves, using Google, and in the Apple Developer Program resources), I'm rather sure no list of these is available from Apple themselves or from any third party. I found the best ways to find the apps tagged as "Essentials," is to look in these places: Both the Mac App Store and the iTunes App Store have a link ...

The best practice in storing app credentials is the Keychain. If you really need to recover the password check out this guide http://www.iphonehacks.com/2013/08/transfer-passwords-to-new-iphone-itunes-backup.html In iTunes, go to the “Summary” section, scroll to Backups, and enable the “Encrypt iPhone backup” option. After recovery, feel free to wipe ...
