No. All applications downloaded by one Apple ID (free or not) and non-transferrable. iTunes support will tell you the same. There is nothing that can be done outside of retrieving/ resetting your password to the original Apple ID associated with the purchase. Then you can download the application again. Contact iTunes support to reset your Apple ID password. ...

Try MacUpdate Desktop (http://www.macupdate.com). It has functionality you are looking for, i.e. searching installed apps and new ones by description... If app is installed it'll show you. If not, then you'll see 'Install' button. Hope this will help you.

You can use meta data. Select the app in Finder, press ⌘+i or secondary click -> Get Info.. There You have "Comments" section, where You can describe Your app (for example "great screen capture app"). Then You can search for an app in Spotlight using the keywords You privided. After upgrading the app, extended attributes are not erased.

Just a thought, but it will require more than a bit of work. Make a text file with the name off all your applications in them. Write a brief description of each application along with any keywords you might associate with the application. Save it in your documents folder. When you do a Spotlight search enter a description of what you want to do and/or a ...

What I do is create folders in Launchpad, bundling apps with related functionality together with an explanatory title. Dupes & Hygiene; Systems & Code; Amnesia (for things like calendars & other life organizational tools); Communication; Finder Tweaks; Media Players; Photo & Visual Art; Browsers & Readers; and so on. I'd never be able to ...

In my opinion this site is a good start for this kind of request. First ask a question about software recommendation (also add software-recommendation tag) or describe the problem You want to solve. There's a chance that someone knows the solution or the app which solves this problem. There are few question here, where Users write scripts, daemons and even ...

I think what you really want to do is to create a bootable backup of your hard drive. There are several good utilities for this (ChronoSync is my favorite). The benefit of a bootable backup is that not only can you restore files from it, but you can also directly boot from it if the hard drive in your computer should ever fail.

Generally speaking to "mirror" a hard drive often means setting up a RAID where one drive mirrors the other. This is done using either the RAID software built into Disk Utility or 3rd party RAID software. The benefits of that is that each drive is a duplicate of the other and if one fails the other disk has all your valuable data. The "problem" is that you ...

That setting is not working. This is Apple's Bug. I confirmed with Apple support. Latest watch os 1.0.1 still Buggy.

I think I finally got a fix, for Microsoft Word (and presumably other Office apps too): Make sure you have a Word window open in all workspaces... of course, you can make the window really, really tiny and pushed away into a corner. This also helps with the jump to another workspace with an open window when you close "the last" (actually useful) window on ...

iShowU can do screen recordings. You can ajoust the framerate, resolution and whether it should track mouse movements or not for a smaller file size. It is $29.95. If you need to convert, compress or crop an existing recording, try Handbrake (it's free).

I'm not sure whether your approach is fundamentally wrong, or not, but I've never done it that way - this has always been my approach To get another user's purchase to that iTunes account, you need to go to Apps > App Store > [scroll right to the bottom] Purchased > Apps > [User Name]

Quicktime You can use QuickTime Player to record everything that happens on your computer’s screen or on a portion of your computer’s screen, along with your narration, if you’d like. This is called a screen recording. In QuickTime Player, choose File > New Screen Recording. Choose options for the screen recording from the arrow pop-up menu. If you want ...

Generally Winebottler can handle licenses, but it works simulating the Windows API, so you have to fine tuning some components and DLL if something is implemented using non common Windows API / DLL, which it means that sometime license verification is implemented with esoteric business logic and may require some particular DLL which doesn't run well with the ...

The MAS receipt is designed just so you can't do that - otherwise you could hand the app to all your friends without them having to buy it ;-) Did you try telling App Store to "Ignore Updates" - right click in empty space to the right of the App name… though I've heard reports this is no longer working in Yosemite; I've no updates to test on right now.

You cannot disable the Notes app in iOS devices, either with Restrictions or with Apple Configurator. There is no way I know of to delete or hide any of the pre-installed Apple apps, either. You can lock each iPad to a single app using guided access, described here. Your best mechanism for preventing this behavior is through social engineering: a clearly ...

Nearly any Windows app can be made to run on Mac hardware, running OS X, even graphically intensive games, albeit with a loss in performance (to some degree or other), just by wrapping the application in a Wineskin... Now I had heard about this over a couple of years, but, after my experience of using Wine on Linux in the early 2000's, I was always put off ...

Another way is to force brew cask install to create the links in the root Applications directory. --appdir=/my/path changes the path where the symlinks to the applications (above) will be generated. This is commonly used to create the links in the root Applications directory instead of the home Applications directory by specifying ...

"macotavio@mac.com" does not appear to be a "generic example email", but rather the Apple ID used to purchase the copy of Final Cut Pro that is installed on your Mac. The purchase is tied to this Apple ID (which explains why you cannot change it) and in order to update the installation, you will have to provide the correct password for this Apple ID.

You have to register with the iTunes Store to be able to download.

App settings aren't cached between installations. Either there's a bug in your app's settings, which it pulls from their API's through their website, or perhaps they have iCloud settings stored. In the first case you should contact Trello about it or try removing and then re-adding the buggy content through the web version. If the latter is the case, go to ...

Take a look at Due. It has a Mac version as well, and I've not seen a more powerful timer app.

Sorry my mistake. I got it working now. I only use 1 certificate for all my apps - the one I requested on the Certificate Assistance on Keychain menu, and generated unique provisioning profiles for each app.

A simple way to accomplish what you ask is to use AppleScripts. The result will be a Status menu represented by the script icon as shown below. (Hint: for a better view, click the image.) Using the Finder, navigate to your home folder. From the Finder menus select View → Show View Options. Make sure "Show Library Folder" is checked off as shown below. ...

When the suggestion appears, just use the navigation to reach it then press delete on it, that's it.

My guess is you probably just need to nuke your user preferences. Open terminal and past this command (make a backup of the Mac if you don't trust this): defaults delete com.panic.coda2 You can also make a brand new user on the Mac and try opening coda there to double check it's not some other file somewhere or it it's really something out of your user ...
