Geektool You can setup GeekTool to run scripts and print the output anywhere on your screen. Here is an example of a script that pings google and says if it can find it or not. if ping -c 1 8.8.4.4 >/dev/null; then # ping google's dns server (silence the output) echo '✅' # when we have succes, echo 'online' else echo ...

The mobile site will still allow you to send/receive messages in Safari and other browsers. It may also be that the version of the app you are using is so old that they cannot prevent the messenging functionality from working; you'll have to wait to see about that or dig up user comments on the topic from Europe, which was pushed into this model in the ...

I would appear that for some reason the developer of Photo Express is not registered with Apple as an identified developer. To get it to install you will need to go to System Preferences and change the default setting for application downloads... System Prefs-> Security And Privacy -> and select Allow apps downloaded from Anywhere. Remember to set the ...

OmniGraffle from The Omni Group might be just what you're looking for. It's a commercial application but it's significantly cheaper than Illustrator. I've been using it for a good few years now as a better alternative to Visio, mainly to draw network diagrams, however I did use it a few times also to draw app icons, etc. It supports exporting to PNG, SVG ...

Sparky works for testing multitouch, so you can try different areas of the screen by holding one finger in a place you know works and move the other elsewhere. If the line breaks, then the second finger is in a location that doesn't work. You can test it full screen (without the Safari UI but the status bar is still present) by adding it to the home screen.

There's two problems with the above plist. You've put the program in the ProgramArguments key. Replace the ProgramArguments key with the Program key and the array with a string. You can't use ~ in a Launch Agent plist. Replace the ~ with the absolute path.

Take a look at HackStore. HackStore it is an amazing free alternative of App Store for side developers and apps for Mac OS which Apple doesnt accept.

Navigate to your Applications folder, right click on any app, choose Show Package Contents and navigate to Contents/MacOS/. Most of the times, the binary is named after the app so, if using the path on a script, you'll be mostly safe by using /Applications/(appname).app/Contents/MacOS/(appname), where (appname) is, well, the name of the app. If the app name ...

IFTTT IF This Then That The app will let you use your built in GPS and it will automatically trigger you have entered your defined work area. Same for if you leave. When it triggers it makes a quick event on a calender of choice. Really handy.

Again, not what you want, but I prefer HippoRemote to the other iPhone-as-software-mouse suggestions because it doesn't require a server app to be running on your computer; you are allowed access to the computer via IP address by logging in with your user ID and you can choose to either have the app retain or erase that information. The pay version of the ...

You can request refund on the website Apple Support, selecting "iTunes Store" product and "Unintentional/unauthorized In-App Purchase by a minor" topic. Here is a good article for this case: http://www.macworld.com/article/2140066/how-to-get-an-app-store-refund-for-kids-accidental-in-app-purchases.html

OSX Snow Leopard included Rosetta, a way to run apps compiled for the PowerPC cpu on the Intel cpu. Mavericks lacks this. Run the lipo command with info option on the binary in the app package to find the supported architectures.

Maybe you could try to go to settings, then you go to " General Usage " to see what are the apps who are taking to much space on your device. Then you just delete the unwanted apps.

Reboot the device by holding both the power and home button until the Apple logo is shown. This will reset the SpringBoard cache which should show the app on the home screen if it's been downloaded (and in Spotlight).

You will keep receiving update notification for the apps you have installed on your device. Any app in iTunes will show available updates even if not currently installed on your device. I'm sure this happens to everyone. I’m not sure this will work for you but still can give it a try. Reinstall the Instagram app, and then delete it again. I had a similar ...

You get those messages because as a normal User You don't have permissions to view directories listed. For example /.fseventsd is owned by root and only root can access it (drwx------ 587 root wheel). To get root privilages You have to run Your command with sudo. In Your case it'll be: sudo find / -iname *.app > ~/applications.txt


1

You need to be root to access certain system directories. Prepend your command with sudo: sudo find / -iname *.app > ~/applications.txt This will give a prompt for your password: Password: Enter your password (the characters will not be shown), then press Enter. The find command will then be run as root and have access to the directories.

I use to have the same problem, cause I had an account from my own home country, the country where I currently live and the US Store. What I did was delete all the applications from my iPod, iPhone and iPad. On my Mac I authorised the iTunes with all the three accounts, and then I applications that I wanted on each I synced, it asked me for a password if I ...

The simple way to clean things up is to delete all apps you no longer want from iTunes and then carefully examine things the next time you sync. By deleting the apps you wish to no longer maintain, you can avoid updates and installs. As to the purchase history, hiding purchases and avoiding re-downloading is the only mechanism that Apple provides today to ...

Make sure the permissions/ACLs are set correctly on the /Applications directory. Run Permissions Repair from Disk Utility to fix this.

The battery doctor HD app by KS moblie tells me the charging current for my iPad 2. However the battery doctor app for iPhone 4s does not appear to give this information.


3

No. If you have no use for it, delete it. The OS doesn't need it any more and if you want to reinstall OS X you can use the Recovery HD, so there's generally no need to keep it. The post-install script will even delete it for you if its found in the default location as far as I know, but if you still have it there's no problem deleting it yourself.

You could try something like FireChat. I have not tried it personally, but it is touted as "a new way to chat: 'off-the-grid'." It uses iOS 7's mesh networking capabilities to achieve this. Now you can chat with people around you – even if there is no Internet connection or mobile phone coverage. Whether you’re on the beach or in the subway, at a ...

For iPhone there is Rowmote and man more (just search for Mouse) - if you find them in the iPad-AppStore they work. Also you may take a look at AirDisplay it can make your iPad to a second Monitor but also it gives you the abillity to have a touchscreen Display. Also you could use a VNC client to Remote Control your Mac/PC.

This is currently not possible within iOS. You can provide feedback to Apple here: https://www.apple.com/feedback/iphone.html

Remote Mouse is a free app downloadable from the iOS App Store, which can act as a trackpad, "Wiimote" style controller, or keyboard. You also have to download the Remote Mouse Server app from the Mac App Store onto the Mac you wish to control. This app DOES NOT work as a mouse in the traditional sense. The closest feature to a mouse that is offered is ...

Remotemouse There is a app named remotemouse in the app store i personally have used this app so you can try it. Its easy to use as mouse. Hope this will help you.

To the best of my knowledge, the answer is no. Of course, without trying out every single mouse app in the App Store, I can't be 100% certain. I can tell you that I've been a long time user of Mobile Mouse. They have about the best mouse/remote control app I've found. They put a lot of effort into trying to get the app to work like a real mouse, and ...

You're not seeing it correctly. Sandboxing doesn't bypass file permissions. If you don't have write access to a file then having the file-write entitlement won't give you write access to the file. Likewise the NSOpen/NSSave dialogs can't access anything they can't access with sandboxing off.

If you got them on the Mac app store, they're computer apps, and they won't work with your iPhone. If you're referring to iPhone apps purchased through iTunes, as long as you're signed in on the same Apple ID on your Mac and your iPhone, you can go to the "Purchased" tab on the iPhone app store and download you apps for free there. Sorry if I'm ...
