I had same problem and fixed it by closing the app down then reopening it, selecting the updates tab, then quickly press on 'update all' before the app updates revert back to 'open'.. You only have a split second to do this but it did work

I was doing a quick google search and this question came up. You can also try Rest, which is a break reminder app that can also suggest exercise suggestions. Disclaimer: I made it.

Its correct that you can click on Groups and then uncheck suggested contacts and it fixes the problem. However, in 15 or 20 min (Im assuming this is when the phone syncs back to exchange server) the suggested contracts gets checked again and the problem is back. Im not sure how to stop it from checking itself back on.

i am having the same problem as well. i have now figured out that it is because of a software update/adobe flash player being opened incorrectly. have you ever heard of putlocker or have you watched anything on an illegal website-this tends to open ads which give you cookies which lead to the opening of software that you don't need and especially don't want. ...

If you delete the app, all the data from that app gets deleted. That is how the phone forgets that app. If the app uses Game Center or another log in to retrieve game state from servers online, then you'll need to temporarily sign out of Game Center and possibly iCloud to remove those files from the phone as well. I'd start by signing out of Game Center ...

That is the icon for AirPlay, by Apple, and that menu bar item allows you to control the streaming/mirroring of content on your Mac to an Apple TV or other AirPlay server. Turning AirPlay Mirroring on and off If your Mac supports using your Apple TV as a display, an AirPlay menu appears in the menu bar when an Apple TV is on the same network. The ...

Your last screenshot is showing the apps that were running in the past 8 hours. You can try running ps -e | grep -i bittorrent in Terminal.app to confirm, but it doesn't appear to be running at this time. Relaunching the Dock should make the icon disappear, unless it's a side effect of autotermination: In Lion [and subsequent versions of OS X], an ...

Type into Terminal: killall "Program Name" Replacing "Program Name" with the name of your program Alternatively you can get the pid of the program and kill it that way. Go to Activity Monitor and select the "Memory" tab and find your program and note it's PID. Go to Terminal and type: kill "pid" Replace the "pid" with the actual PID of your program.

I would suggest uninstalling the BitTorrent, and then using a light weight torrent such as uTorrent instead. If you can't uninstall using the normal methods, use AppCleaner ( http://www.freemacsoft.net/appcleaner/ ) - this should sort it for you and force the app to close without harm.

On the new Apple stores, for iOS 7.0 and 8.0 I think, at the top there is an option to switch between "iPad only" apps and "iPhone only" apps.

I think it won't work. From the Apple Support pages: After you change the country of your account, you won't see the items you purchased from the previous country’s store in the Purchased section.

One more method: # chown someuser command # chmod u+s command $ ./command Thanks to wysota at : http://www.qtcentre.org/threads/4730-Linux-Bash-Run-a-command-as-another-user (Spent a lot of time hunting for something that works in my particular situation, figured I'd spread the wealth)

Do you mean like an item in the menu bar? For that: Open System Preferences Go to the Keyboard tab Shortcuts Tab Click App Shortcuts Click the + icon Follow the instructions Hit Add I hope that helped.

I've been looking for something similar, and it has proven quite difficult to find options. Everything's moving to the cloud. Appigo's Todo app seems to allow local sync, but that may be limited to Wifi sync (with both devices on the same network). Still, even something like that (which at least does not involve a 3rd party server) is hard to find. ...

If you're willing to sacrifice Siri for the ability to control your music with your voice, you could turn off Siri in Settings>General>Siri, which'll make your iPod respond to a held-down Home button with the classic Voice Control interface instead. A Google search is telling me that that one works offline! For more information about non-Siri Voice Control, ...

Which iOS are you using? There is an issue where it won't update but opens when you press "update" if you're not on the iOS 8.x versions. The only way to update is click on the app and it'll take you to the details of the app, then you can update.

There may be a way to view your CPU's clock speed at this exact second, but as mentioned elsewhere, it is a constantly changing variable (due to Turbo Charge). Comparing clock speeds between different CPU generations, especially nearly five years apart, is also not at all useful. A much more useful approach would be to use benchmarks. MacWorld uses ...

You can manually make the "th" superscript. Highlight the "th", then in the menu bar, select "Format > Font > Baseline > Superscript". There is also a keyboard shortcut: ⌃+⌘++

Text is handled by default with copy/paste. While it would be possible to create an app that allows text to be sent to TextCrafter (or similar), and a new document to be automatically created from that text, it is not default in iOS. As a result, the only option is to copy the text (which is available system wide) and paste it into TextCrafter.

To have this feature, you need to use Pages 09, where it can be selected in the Autocorrect preferences. The Pages 5 released in 2013 deletes this feature, along with dozens of others, and has become useless for many purposes.

Not sure if this will resolve it, but you could try removing the .ipa files from your computer. In Finder, navigate to "/Users/your name/Music/iTunes/iTunes Media/Mobile Applications" From there, you can try removing the .ipa files.

OS X spawns from two different cultures: Unix/POSIX and Mac OS. Folders like /usr, /var, /etc, the command line shell in the Terminal (bash by default) all belong to POSIX environment. Portable software targeting Unix-based systems (like git) go into /usr/local by default, or into package manager's defined location if installed by it (Homebrew uses ...

I'm assuming you dragged this icon, from the Sidebar of a Finder window… That, as you discovered, will remove it from the Sidebar rather than add it to the Dock. You can get that back from Finder Menu > Prefs > Sidebar. Re-check the Applications icon To then add Applications to the dock, start by clicking the sidebar element you just restored, in any ...

Check Activity Monitor to see if there are any Dropbox processes running. If there are, kill them, then you should be able to delete the Dropbox app. If you have used Dropbox at all, then remember that any files you synched will still be on your MacBook's HD in /Users/[your_username]/Dropbox.

It is well known that Apple has special relationships with certain developers. It is also possible that they have asked for an "Expedited App Review," though it is unlikely that they have done this for each of these updates. The Expedited Review is supposed to be only for horrific bugs (especially when the app will not open, or if there is a data loss ...

I had the same problem. Fastest solution and worked on both computers was: (a) Go to http://www.code42.com/store/ (b) Download free version of CrashPlan (c) After clicking to install the pop-up with the application symbol (that you drop into your Applications folder) also has a small trashcan in the bottom right corner. (d) After installation complete click ...

This happens sometimes when an app installation or update fails and SpringBoard still shows the icon from cache.

Dark Sky shows expected accumulation... In my experience it is pretty inaccurate, but it tries. It has almost always forecasted more accumulation than actually accumulates. It is pretty accurate with its other predictions though. The prediction engine that runs Dark Sky is available at http://forecast.io if you want to try it out for free. I can't remember ...

Note that Preview cannot "open any PS file" -- it is limited to Postscript files that are structured in such a way that Preview can convert them to a PDF, and then it displays the PDF. That means that hand-coded PostScript may not be compatible, but the output of any commercial application should be.

You can double click the Home Button to see recently run apps and choose the previous one. There is not a hardware or software back button as there is on Android phones. Here is an apple article on iOS multitasking and background activity.

On a side note, remember to check your Newsstand folder. You might have apps you forgot about in there. They could be little background lurkers. This folder is seaky and doesn't display the app unless you open newsstand. I forgot about one for almost a year. Some of these apps use "background app refresh" to gather and or update content.
