There are web-based IDEs that support Java like IDE One and CodeBox that should work from an iPad. Obviously there are limitations with both but they might suffice. This is my immediate thought, because I believe Apple have rules against people creating apps that include their own runtime. Which I'd assume you'd require if you wanted to compile Java code ...

Sounds like an opportunity to create an app! Google Maps allows you to save your own maps (My Maps) where you can add locations and place short notes about them. You can not categorize or sort. With Yelp, you can save locations and make notes, but its limited beyond those features. The closest I have seen to what you are seeking is an app and website ...

Mouseposé Mouseposè will highlight the cursor using a customisable dimming of the rest of the screen, and can zoom to the cursor's location. Of course, there are other uses as well.

Now you can scale the mouse pointer to the size you like. Doing it the Apple way (without some 3d party apps) Create a script as follows that will toggle your cursor size.

Simple Mouse Locator I searched the App store (I was actually hoping this was something included in OSX) but this is EXACTLY what I was looking for. I looked at the other apps (but did not install). I appreciate all the help and hope that this will help some other person having similar problems.

I developed a free app to download subtitles on the Mac. You can download it from the following link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/2fryz1u9ox6oaxy/Sub-O-Matic.app.zip?dl=0 It downloads from OpenSubtitles. It is not a signed application (I'm not willing to pay Apple two times, as I develop for iPhone and not for Mac), so you have to allow it to run ...

I'm the founder of Mapstr... And I don't know how to describe it better than you did with your requirements. It's just the exact same app you describe: It allows you to save places on a map and group them by categories (e.g. restaurants, bars, clubs, ...). You can change the name of the location and add some comments to remember what the place was. You ...

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 ...

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 ...
