What no-one seems to have pointed out so far is that /Applications are usable by everybody & ~/Applications are only for that user. Some installers will ask if you want to install for this user or for everybody. That's how it can differentiate. That will be one of the reasons Steam installs to there, as it's a per user license. Apple's app ...

Assuming you want to hide iBooks app, start your terminal app do the following: $ cd /Applications/ $ sudo chflags hidden iBooks.app And you are almost done. Start finder app and in Applications folder you won't see iBooks app. But it's still in visible in the Applications Dock folder. You have to ...

You can easily do this by managing apps for that user in Parental Controls. See this screen shot to limit apps. It is a per-app setting, so you need to maintain the list of allowed apps. The setting you posted in your question is for managing the code signing status of apps and not for restricting certain apps and certain user accounts.

By default the root directory should not be directly writable, by other then root, without being prompt for permission with other users in Finder and or using sudo from the command line. IMO /Applications should be used over ~/Applications for most applications as that is the default location. Also I certainly do not want to bloat out my Home folder with ...

Forgive me if I've missed something, but iTunes organizes video files and meets all of your stated requirements as of the time of this posting. You can add images to the file's metadata, set the season, and set the episode by right-clicking on the file, selecting 'get info', and entering the data in the appropriate spaces. iTunes will display files' ...

This completely depends on the app. There's nothing that by default sends identifying in formation about your system to the App developers, the App would have to have been written in order to have this behavior. Depending on the app, however, it's possible that some might. You didn't mention if you're on iOS or Mac OS. If you're on Mac OS, and you're ...

You can use AppCleaner to do it, although you first need to uncheck [] Protect default apps in its General Preferences. AppCleaner Preferences AppCleaner showing deleting the Chess.app, which will work the same for other Apple installed Apps providing the preference mentioned is unchecked.

I'd been wondering about this as well. I have my App folder in the side dock which gives me an unwieldy list of names longer than the screen heigth. The solution I tried attacks the problem from another angle. Instead of cleaning out the App folder, I made a new folder and put in alias's of just the programs I use. You can then drag the folder off to your ...

I had the same problem - not being able to update my apps under IOS 8.4.1. It had always worked before, but seemingly that function just randomly stopped working. Internet access was not the problem. DDPWNAGE's answer worked for me - well kind of. When I went to Settings/iTunes & App Store I didn't find a 'log out' option - instead I had a 'sign in' ...

I have observed a similar problem with RunKeeper in the past (not on my iPhone 6 as of yet) and I believe it has to do with the phone struggling to accurately locate itself at that moment. iPhone's "zero-in" on their current location, starting with a big radius and shrinking it as it gets more accurate information. With that, it always assumes that it is in ...

I've personally been using RescueTimefor a long time now. The Premium version is based on a subscription (monthly or annually), so it may not fit your need, but there is also a free version, which is enough in my case. The data is collected automatically from a Desktop application, the dashboard and settings are web-based. I used TimeSink which is a Mac ...

I believe it is a permissions issue. OSX is a multi user system, each user can have his own apps, files and folders. Here is what Apple says about Users: Standard user: Standard users are set up by an administrator. A standard user can install apps and change settings for his or her own use. Standard users can’t add other users or change other users’ ...

In addition to the answer of DDPWNAGE and user138479 you may try to update directly via the app site and click on "update" there instead of using the "update all" button in the update tab. Click "App-Store" ➡️ "Updates" ➡️ Click on App Name ➡️ In App Details click on "Update" Another option might be to check if there is another download hanging which ...

The apps not showing were purchased under a different Apple ID. I had to logout from the current ID in iTunes, and login with the other ID. Then I could Transfer purchases (which included those other apps).
