If it's not an iPad with cell service, turning off wifi will stop your apps from being able to access the ad servers and show you ads. Any free game that doesn't require the Internet should be fine! (And if it is a cellular iPad, just go all-out Airplane Mode. Same effect.)

If you're on OS X Yosemite (v10.10.x), Finder has a built-in way to batch rename files. Highlight all the files you want in Finder, hold down Control and click on one of them to bring up a right-click menu, and then click on "Rename x Files...". You'll get a nice find-and-replace interface, no third-party software necessary!

The process to make your own test rig is quite easy: Install OS X onto a USB hard drive. A partition with 20 GB should be just fine. Use the Startup Disk preference pane to reboot to that new OS and create an admin user. Install homebrew - https://brew.sh Install smartmontools - brew install smartmontools Get a USB drive or SD card if you don't want to ...

In the release of OS X El Capitan, just shake the cursor to locate it. Call out your cursor. Lost your cursor on your crowded desktop? Just shake your finger back and forth on the trackpad or give your mouse a shake, and the cursor gets bigger so it’s easy to spot. (From Apple)

I have not used it, but Current for Facebook claims to support group chats.

I'd second the recommendations for Sublime Text and the JetBrains products (I use WebStorm extensively in my job). If you want something free, atom is well worth a look. It's fairly bare-bones, but has a wide selection of plugins that should encompass what you need.

It has been mentioned, but only in passing: Atom (https://atom.io/) is open source and developed by GitHub. Integration with github is superb and it is particularly interesting these days since there is a lot of development with new features and new ideas regularly. I think it will cover your whole list of requirements through extensions (packages - ...

I thought I might like to have something like this too, so I threw together an app that does this. Feel free to try it out! Warning though: I have one video where the skip value doesn't work. I'm not sure why it only has an issue with this one video... Just a heads up. It works 99% of the time though! Push 1 to place the video or image being shown in sort ...

To install homebrew type: ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)" To enable homebrew cask type: brew install caskroom/cask/brew-cask

At first, I thought there would be a straight-forward, albeit hidden, solution. However, after doing some digging, it seems that something that should be a simple swipe or click to do is more complicated than that. This is going to be a little long, but hopefully will be incredibly helpful. I was going to post this earlier today, but did not get the chance ...

It's been a while since I have used it. But FileBuddy is designed to manipulate file names and a bunch of other stuff. Might be worth a look see.

Preview should do the job just fine.

I think I will use Marvin (there is a trial free version) when I can't restore Stanza from the backup. (I recently had to reset my phone and reinstalled Stanza even though it is not in the AppStore any more) I did try Marvin as my reader but went back to Stanza Marvin has a direct interface to Calibre via a plugin see support forum which allows direct ...

Image editing software is the only way to go here. You'll have to determine which you want to use if you want us to be able to help you out how to do it. If it's a usual window, the easy route would be to only screenshot that window (cmd+shift+4, then hit the space bar and click the window). That will be easy to fill in.
