You can do this with Alfred Powerpack and Key Clue workflow. This way you can search the command in the Spotlight like behavior (while providing you with all the visible shortcuts). In fact, you can use Command+<Number Key> to quickly choose the command from search result. I’ve actually written the similar post before, but using another workflow ...

For Quicksilver users—exactly what I was looking for. Here is an (old) Gigaom post about it. It can be activated with a trigger key (mine is Option-Space) and then you can just type the menu item’s name in. You can install the plugin in Quicksilver’s plugins pane. Thanks to sayzlim, I found it through an Alfred Forums link in his blog post. * ...

I prefer Clicker Counter for a simple tally counter and Tally for more options (like multiple lists, count up or down, etc). Both are free to use.

I don't know of a free option. There are products like X-Mirage (USD 16), which lets you record your device via AirPlay. This is probably the most hassle-free and cheap solution. You can also buy an HDMI adapter from Apple, or some third party version, and record your gameplay that way using e.g. an HDD-recorder with HDMI input. For this solution you ...

You can use a private.xml like this with KeyRemap4MacBook: <?xml version="1.0"?> <root> <item> <name>test</name> <identifier>test</identifier> <autogen>__KeyToKey__ KeyCode::F13, KeyCode::BRACKET_LEFT, VK_SHIFT</autogen> <autogen>__KeyToKey__ KeyCode::F14, KeyCode::BRACKET_RIGHT, ...

The app I prefer for getting a quick list of keyboard shortcuts is CheatSheet - free, quick and reliable: http://www.cheatsheetapp.com/CheatSheet/ It only shows you menu items that have key shortcuts, but is a one stop - install and go type of tool that you don't need to learn how to use.

i didnt find anything that makes double click -> maximize available, but i found using http://hyperdock.bahoom.com/ best alternative (it also gives you active windows preview in your dock on top of window management) HyperDock brings advanced window management features to Mac OS: Move & resize windows just by holding down keys and/or moving your mouse. ...

Not an Apple-approved answer, but to solve your root cause (to train battery regularly when your MBP is always at your desk), consider surge protectors with scheduled on/off (example, about $40 in Russia). You can program it to turn off in the beginning of night, and to turn on about 4am so that battery is charged back by the time you show up at your desk. ...

I have used both KeePass and MiniKeePass in the past and can confirm that they are great and work perfectly — they work very simply but excel at what they do: simple password management. They seem great for your needs.

You can do this with Activity Monitor. You can run this in the background with the window closed and it will track the data usage for the apps and services. In Mavericks, this is a separate Network tab, but you can add the Sent/Received columns to the view in Mountain Lion too.

I would highly recommend the Elgato line of capture hardware as they are reasonably priced, well supported, come with the software you need and have been in the business for quite some time. Even for some prosumer applications, Elgato hardware is good enough for the job as some input sources are not going to be improved by spending $2000 on hardware that ...

Dropbox is likely the best for storing photos in the cloud. It allows you to easily, and simply select photos from your library and then upload them to the Dropbox cloud. The one caveat is that it is annoying to restore images because you have to go to each picture and restore it individually. Who knows, perhaps they will come out with an update that will ...

Take a look at Textastic. I've tried many others Code, Buffer Editor, Diet Coda, etc. While they all have some decent features, nothing is quite up to par yet all around in comparison to Textastic in my opinion (especially if you like Sublime Text).

There used to be some free apps, but they stopped working because the devs didn't have time to update them to work with the latest changes to airplay. If you are willing to pay a bit of money you can get apps which turn your Mac into an Airplay server. You can then mirror your iPad's screen to your Mac, and record it there. Reflector is $12.99 AirServer ...

There is MenuEverywhere, which adds a menu like this on top of windows: It's not really usable in my opinion though. It looks a bit glitchy when you move or resize a window, and sometimes the menu does not appear at all. It doesn't remove OS X's normal menu bar. If a window is at the top of a screen, the menu is shown over the title bar. It also adds the ...

Way back in the OS 9 days, we could install hacks to do crazy things like recolour windows and move around those window controls, but now they are simply buried too close to the metal to do system-wide. Back in those days too many of these hacks would cause system instability. I'm sure Apple could have built in such customization cleanly in OS X, and indeed ...

A low-tech solution is to open a terminal window, run time cat, and then stop by pressing control-c: $ time cat ^C 4.487 $ Two ways to show the number of seconds since the last run: f=${TMPDIR}stopwatch;date +%s>>$f;tail -n2 $f|awk '{l=$0;getline;print $0-l}' now=$(date +%s);echo $((now-prev));prev=$now

The Typing Cat I like it because: it's free fast gives nice progress supports multiple layouts (qwerty, dvorak, colemak, workman) looks good You don't need to install anything - it's webapp i'm creator and i'm proud of it and made it as sideeffect of teaching myself Colemak. But I can be subjective u need to try it yourself to verify my statements :)

Mou Mou is my favourite Markdown editor for editing GitHub files and other documentation. Its live preview is priceless for editing in this way, especially using the specifically-designed GitHub theme that mimics the end result as shown on GitHub's preview and wiki pages. The app also lets you export to HTML along with the CSS so that you can upload the ...

I found here from an off topic question on Stack Overflow: There were two Open Source mangers mentioned there that did not show up on this list: Spectacle -> http://spectacleapp.com/ Slate -> https://github.com/jigish/slate (setup requires work on the command line) Another from the App Store Slicer -> ...
