It seems to be related to this bug report. Does the application run if you open it via terminal? e.g open /Applications/MATLAB_R2013a.app if so you may just need to clear dock/icon caches: killall -HUP Dock

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, ...

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 ...

In iTunes: Select "iTunes Store" on the left pane Select "Account" under "Quick Links" on the right side Find "Purchase History" section Select "See All" - free apps will be listed there, as well as paid.

Try the migration assistant first. It will move everything you need from your old mac. (OS 10.6.8 or later) Many applications have data in the /Library/Application Support folder or the ~/Library/Application Support folder as well as prefeferences and other scattered support files that would all need to be moved.

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.

Busycal is a wonderful calendar app that is a more fully featured version of iCal (predecessor to the even-less-imaginatively-named Calendar). BusyCal does include ToDo List capability with multiple lists, which can be associated with specific calendars. Can include tags, alarms, priority, notes, etc. One of my favourite things about BusyCal is that it ...

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 ...

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 ...

You mention changing your Google Password from your iPhone, so I'm not sure if you are really talking about your AppleID password (for the iPhone App Store) or your Google Play password. My answer assumes you really mean the AppleID. Apple has a separate App Store for each country. Many apps are available at multiple App Stores, but some are limited to ...

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 ...

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.

In addition to the other answers, it can show multiple copies that exist on other hard drives or backup copies.

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.

Often, if you can't download (even free) apps from the App Store, this is because your payment information is not valid (or no longer valid). From the Settings app, go to the App Store settings, then tap on your Apple ID in blue at the top. After typing your Apple ID password, tap on Payment Information and make sure all the data is present, and correct. ...

I'm not familiar with Sunrise so I'm not sure what your objection is. I assume it's just that it doesn't support to-dos? Fantastical is a calendar app that supports both events/appointments and todos.

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 ...

Connect the device with the app to the PC with a USB cable. Right click on the iPod and select "transfer purchases" Once the app is on the computer, then connect the iPhone. Set up that app to sync and you should be done.

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.

The solution seem to be to stubbornly cancel the download every time you see it happening. After many times, somewhere in the Big Apple Mother Ship a sentient entity decided to stop trying.

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 ...

One workaround that I see a lot is to ask your workplace for a dedicated work phone - if they expect you to be reachable outside of office hours, then they've likely got some legal obligation to provide this. When you're not working, turn it off. On the other hand, if you can't just let go of work when you get home, that is a whole different problem and ...

I think this Running iReport on OS/X with Oracle JDK7 may be telling you that it isn't compatible with Oracle's Java. You can download the last OS X Java release (see Java for OS X 2014-001) which is usable on OS X 10.7/.8/.9. It appears you could then use jdkhome to point to the Apple Java release.

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 ...

U can use Wunderlist or Clear. If you install one of these apps there will be a widget in the notification center.

You can also use Apple's Reminders, these will also display in the notification center..

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 ...

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.
