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 ...

How to do this with the tools to hand: Preview .app and Screen Capture. Open up any Application that lets you have a clean neat white background. Not strictly necessary but makes life easier.

Most of the text macro tools available on the Mac will be able to trigger scripts (Applescript, shell scripts, etc.) as well as perform standard expansions based on the input and context. I like to start my expansions with the semi-colon since I know I will rarely accidentally trigger an expansion in my normal typing, and it's an easy key to hit. For ...

Keyboard Maestro is pretty ...

Perforce, a source control application, has a free * diff and merge tool that is cross platform and works fine on my mac. It's called P4Merge. http://www.perforce.com/product/components/perforce-visual-merge-and-diff-tools It presents file-diffs very nicely and handles three-way merges like a champ. As a long-time WinMerge user I was very happy with it. ...

Day-O Day-O is a simple menu bar clock replacement with a simple calendar for your Mac. It’s free, as-is (which means I’m not providing support, taking feature requests, addressing perceived inadequacies or releasing the source code).

Sitesucker isn't freeware, but it's exactly what you're looking for. I use it all the time. It costs $4.99 through the App Store. "SiteSucker is a Macintosh application that automatically downloads Web sites from the Internet. It does this by asynchronously copying the site's Web pages, images, backgrounds, movies, and other files to your local ...

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 ...

I highly recommend Keynote for this. Whilst Apple haven't perfected importing all the functionality of PowerPoints yet, the exporting works flawlessly and you can create great presentations on Keynote.

You could create a Yahoo pipe that filters your RSS feeds for those specific keywords. Then create an RSS feed of the pipe's output. Use that to create a Feed Channel trigger in IFTTT that texts you, emails you, notifies your iphone, etc. It’s a multilayered approach, I admit, but I think it could work for you if you don’t mind using those services.

The simplest way I know uses Preview. Open both photos with Preview, position their windows side-by-side (flush) in front of your desktop and then use Preview's "Take a screen shot" command with the "from Selection" option. Select around the perimeter of both photos together and it will create a montage for you.

In your case probably the mdfind will do great job. It is not a GUI but a Terminal command, and it will search everywhere and everything. Once found you can triple click on the line (to select it) and Right Click and use the "Reveal in Finder".

I highly recommend the app SelfControl: http://selfcontrolapp.com You can use either a whitelist or a blacklist of websites and you can set it for a specified time limit. It's great for either blocking the sites you know will tempt you, or allowing only certain sites you know you'll need. You can also edit the hosts file at /private/etc/hosts to block ...

Another option is to create ~/Library/KeyBindings/, save { "a" = { "s" = (insertText:, "λ"); }; } as ~/Library/KeyBindings/DefaultKeyBinding.dict, and quit and reopen applications to apply changes. That prevents you from inserting a, but you might replace a with another key combination like ~a (option-a) or \Uf704 (F1).

The answers that others have given are probably the way you want to do this, but if you really wanted to intercept and inject keystrokes, check out how Karabiner (formerly KeyRemap4MacBook) does it. Here's the interesting bit: https://github.com/tekezo/Karabiner/tree/master/src/core/kext It would be pretty involved to adapt their code and do what you ...
