Home Sharing is not the same as de-authorizing a device. Home sharing allows two devices to access media on the same iTunes account, but not the apps. If I understand it correctly Apps can be accessed by only one device - the device authorized for that account. You can "de-authorize" a device and then add a new device to the account to allow access the apps ...

I have found AppCooker to be robust enough to create a mockup with 40 > screens. You can specify your own tappable areas and links between the screens so that those mockup screens come to life. However I'm really interested in finding alternatives too: AppCooker is great. Don't get me wrong. However I really wish that it had the ability to handle different ...

It seems as though you are asking if the version numbers for iBooks on OSX and iOS are different for everyone else. The answer is that yes, these two apps which have the same name are actually wholly different apps, one for each operating system, and the version numbers are equally different. The most recent versions (as of the time of answering this mail) ...

You cannot do this from the Dropbox app. Neither can you transfer music from your Dropbox account into the Music app directly (without getting them to a computer, adding to iTunes and syncing the music to the iPhone). You can play songs from your Dropbox account using other apps. Search for "dropbox music player ios" on the web to find some of these apps. ...

Sorry but it does not work you should delete the app quickly and report it to Apple to get your money back.

Stub applications are smaller apps that do work for larger, more complex apps. For example, an app can request information from a stub app concurrently with a main process that the original app is running. Then, the stub app can return information back to the main process that initiated the stub binary.

I was upset about GrowlVoice not working too. I have another app for Mac called VoiceMac which isn't too bad. it has to be running in the dock to receive notifications on real time otherwise you get your texts the next time that you open the app. You can find it here. https://mrgeckosmedia.com/applications/info/VoiceMac

The developer's twitter page said that Google has revoked access to Google Voice for GrowlVoice so they can no longer support the app. It has since been removed from the App Store as well and I am also looking for an alternative to this wonderful application.

Check the Twitter feed for the developer. As of nine hours ago GrowlVoice access to Google Voice has been shutdown and will not be corrected.

I have a Mac and Google Voice. I use Chrome too so I mostly just use the Google Voice extension for Chrome, since Chrome is pretty much open all the time on my computer. The only other program I've seen for Google Voice for Mac besides GrowlVoice is a dashboard widget. It can send text messages and place calls, but I think all it does for incoming messages ...

There is really only one syntax mistake that you made. You put a space before Number in $ApplicationVersionNumber. However, most apps don't have a version.plist file. However, they always have the version in their Info.plist. Here is a fixed version of the script with a few improvements: #!/bin/sh ApplicationName=/Applications/FakeApp.app ...

You could try different ways of speeding up the Android emulator, such as running an x86 guest, and installing Intel HAXM. If the graphics is slow, you can also try installing an "accelerated" emulator like GenyMotion, which seems to paravirtualize graphics APIs.

I doubt if we support installing such (cracked) software, but I can at least give you the facts as I'm not explaining how to download or modify it to crack it. If you're talking about an .app which is originally downloaded from the Mac AppStore in this case, I can explain you the following details: Apps like this have their own sandbox (this is the same ...

You can do this with Activity Monitor. You can run this in the background with the window closed and it will track the data usage for the apps and services. In Mavericks, this is a separate Network tab, but you can add the Sent/Received columns to the view in Mountain Lion too.

I have a friend that works at Apple, he is in charge of designing the iPhone cases.

I have just tried an app claiming to do this and compared it to my Garmin HRM and a manual test and the figures shown on the app are in line with the other tests. As for inanimate having a heart beat what I believe the app does is increase its sensitivity looking for a regular pulse(change in the image).

While you can use Visio for this sort of thing, it's not really ideal. One method is to use the normal Calendar App, but it might be hard to get it to print how you like it. Another is to use something like Numbers from the iWork suite. It has several templates that you can use for creating planners (daily/weekly/monthly), and while some may need ...

I don't see a feature in Alfred that looks like it will enable that directly (though I might have missed it). You can: open Automator create a new application add the "Run Shell Script" action paste in your command Select "Save..." from the file menu name it vlcnew.app Now Alfred should find that app if you type vlcnew.

If you examine using ps the command launched by Printer Setup or when adding a printer through System Preferences, you'll note that it includes a -psn qualifier that directs the application as to the "process serial number" to use to communicate with the application.

This a the behaviour defined by Apple for iPhone apps on iPad. There is nothing you can do.

Yes, if the app is deleted after being downloaded, it still counts as a download. Deleting the app does not affect the ranking of the app. If you download the app over and over again using the same Apple ID, it will still count as one download. You cannot improve your rating by downloading the same app over and over again unless you use different Apple IDs. ...

Coincidentally, FileHippo isn't necessary for the vast majority of those apps you listed. Tons of Mac OS X apps use a framework called Sparkle for self updating. Don't download Sparkle, it won't do you any good. It's a developer tool intended to be added as part of the application's code. The point is that Sparkle (or some other self-updater) is already ...

It depends. If you have an Apple Developer account ($99 per year), you can create either a ad hoc distribution profile or use a development certificate. For more information on that, view here. Although it is called beta testing, it serves your purpose. Now if you don't have an Apple Developer account, you can use jailbroken devices and Jailcoder. To use ...

Yes. You'll need an Apple Developer account which costs 99 USD a year. You'll be able to put your app on up to 100 devices. The enterprise program costs 299 USD and allows ad-hoc distribution of apps via configurator (for non-development purposes)

You can use AppleScript to make a .app file for this (That is the only file type that can go in the left side of the dock). It is in /Applications/Utilities/AppleScript Editor and when you make a new file you can put in do shell script "/Applications/apache-jmeter-2.11/bin/jmeter". I do this all the time for shell scripts, so I can access them easily. Then ...

When you launch it does it show an icon in the dock? If not it may be a command line program that is running inside terminal. If that is the case there are ways to make an Applescript/Automator wrap-around that will launch command line applications that should give you a dock icon. Having never done this myself, however, I am afraid you will have to do some ...
