Rebuild LaunchServices to Fix Duplicate Entries in OS X’s ‘Open With’ Menu To fix this, we need to reset OS X’s LaunchServices database. As is the case with most actions in OS X, there are multiple ways to accomplish this task, but the fastest is to simply use a Terminal command. From that article- Copy following in to your Terminal ...

This appears to be a bug with enterprise distribution in iOS 8. If you updated to iOS 8 and had an app with the same bundle identifier installed (i.e. the same app) then you'll be unable to install the app. A workaround is to change the bundle identifier in the distribution plist. This doesn't require the actual bundle identifier of the app to change, just ...

This is for Growl a popular notification system before Apple created the Notification Center. You will find a panel in the System Preferences that controls it.

Yes it is certainly possible. You need to sync your iPod via iTunes on your PC. All purchased apps should then appear in iTunes. You can then transfer them from iTunes to your iPhone. Additionally, I recommend syncing with a computer regularly to ensure you have a backup of all your data. You are backing up right? Here is Apple's support documentation ...

You can find the app that steals focus by saving the following code in a find_focus_stealer.py file and running it via python find_focus_stealer.py in a terminal. Start running the script, it will print out the name of the active app every 3 seconds. Keep working as usual, wait for the problem to occur, and after a few seconds see the output in the ...

In addition to the other answers, it can show multiple copies that exist on other hard drives or backup copies. An external hard drive that you use for Time Machine backups may show up as an option if your Applications are backed up to that drive.

To expand on the answers provided by grgarside and Buscar, you can make it slightly less of a pain by defining an alias in your .bashrc script. To do that, open Terminal.app and with you favourite text editor (vi, nano, emacs if you're so inclined) edit .bashrc to add the following line at the very end: alias ...

As xVir said in the comment, it will depend on the apps and not on Health. After Health has been released, several of the apps I used were updated to support Health. Some of them just said that they would push data in Health from now on (like Sleep Time), and others took the data they already had created to push it to Health (like FitStar). So, it's up to ...

A fantastic resource is AppShopper (http://appshopper.com). It won't give you the cost of the whole list of apps you own all at once, which would be ideal for your situation. But, if you look up apps in AppShopper, it will give you the complete history of that app's price. So it will tell you not just whether it is free today, but whether it is sometimes ...

In addition to LudoMC's answer: The Health(Kit) app uses a specific format of data. If the "old" data which has been collected misses a certain factor which is required by Health, it will be very hard to import this data to Health. However, this is up for the developer. I would personally not develop this feature and spend the time for "upgrades" to an ...

Most applications downloaded from the Mac App Store are transferable to another Mac, either by network or removable media (USB, etc). You can copy the applications to your new Mac.

I've had good luck with Acrobits Softphone... it's a SIP soft phone for iOS. Once you have an appropriate VoIP/PBX account that supports SIP clients, you can use google chat to get your calls into the PBX. It definitely has some noticeable lag, but it is certainly better than nothing. You can get a free VoIP/PBX account at pbxes.com (I have no ...

With iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite, you can just connect the iPhone to your Mac and it will be available as a video camera. Then you can record video using QuickTime. (Source: https://developer.apple.com/app-store/app-previews/) With previous versions of iOS and OS X, you can use AirPlay mirroring on your phone and an AirPlay receiver/recorder like Reflector or ...

You can use an OS X app like Reflector or AirServer to make your Mac simulate an AirPlay display. Then you select your Mac as an external AirPlay display on your iPhone. AirServer and Reflector provide features to record the output. OS X 10.10 Yosemite has an iOS screen recording feature built into QuickTime.

Step 1: Automator tasks Create an Automator task, and save it (take note of the task file location). You probably want a couple Automator tasks in this case (one to mute and one to unmute). Here's a very basic mute script: set volume output volume 0 And unmute: set volume output volume 100 After you've created both Automator task files, Step 2: ...

I don't believe there is one app to do what you want, but a combination of the following should do it. RCDefaultApp is the old stalwart of extension/mime/creator code and many other types of mappings. In the transition days between Mac OS 9 and X, I used this extensively to deal with all of my files with Type and Creator Codes. For more complicated file ...

I currently use Simplenote to sync with my nvAlt on my Mac. While Simplenote is doing the syncing, you can configure SimpleNote to also sync to Dropbox, or you can have nvAlt store the files in Dropbox on you Mac. A little more in line with your question, I have used Notesy in the past. It uses Dropbox for syncing, and nvAlt could still access the files via ...

There are quite a few Apps in the App Store, including Barometer, Barometer+ and Barometer++. Take your pick. This site does the research for you.

You can't run bought apps in the iOS simulator in Xcode.

Barometer++ (full disclosure: I worked on the app at Friends of The Web) shows the raw pressure values from the iPhone 6 or 6 Plus's barometer sensor. It also shows sea-level adjusted pressure to compare to weather stations around the world (using your GPS altitude), and shows elevation changes based on the barometer.

I'm sure people have probably realized now how to get around-about-answer on this subject but I have been searching for an answer for an hour and figured out a way to kind of get an answer. If you have iOS 8 (now that this post is years after the original question..) Settings > General > Usage > Battery Usage And you can see which apps have used the most ...

Generally speaking the Apple Migration Assistant will (optionally) transfer applications as well as documents. How well that works with any individual application will be up to the application vendor. And that info may be on their web site. So it is theoretically possible to transfer settings, documents and applications from one Mac to another (ethernet, ...
