I was upset about GrowlVoice not working too. I have another app for Mac called VoiceMac which isn't too bad. it has to be running in the dock to receive notifications on real time otherwise you get your texts the next time that you open the app. You can find it here. https://mrgeckosmedia.com/applications/info/VoiceMac

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, ...

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.

The developer's twitter page said that Google has revoked access to Google Voice for GrowlVoice so they can no longer support the app. It has since been removed from the App Store as well and I am also looking for an alternative to this wonderful application.

Check the Twitter feed for the developer. As of nine hours ago GrowlVoice access to Google Voice has been shutdown and will not be corrected.

I have a Mac and Google Voice. I use Chrome too so I mostly just use the Google Voice extension for Chrome, since Chrome is pretty much open all the time on my computer. The only other program I've seen for Google Voice for Mac besides GrowlVoice is a dashboard widget. It can send text messages and place calls, but I think all it does for incoming messages ...

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 just found this searching for Alfred plugins. Layouts is an AppleScript file and an Alfred Workflow to give you a lightweight window manager for your Mac. Out of the box, it allows you to resize your active window to top half, right half, bottom half, left half, top left quarter, top right quarter, bottom right quarter, bottom left quarter, center window ...

Did you tried to use Quick Time Player to record your voice? note that the visual could you wnat is up to you and it could be done by VLC player.

There is also Documents Viewer for 1.99 USD: Documents Viewer allows you to preview Word, Excel and Powerpoint documents on iPad as Microsoft Office originally displays them.

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.

Quicktime makes movie recordings and is free / included with all Mac OS X. From your requirements I would start there and ask again if you run into issues.

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.

Don't forget that Google Drive has a new Web-based App that will let you edit/import/export Visio documents -- its called Lucid Diagram.

While you can use Visio for this sort of thing, it's not really ideal. One method is to use the normal Calendar App, but it might be hard to get it to print how you like it. Another is to use something like Numbers from the iWork suite. It has several templates that you can use for creating planners (daily/weekly/monthly), and while some may need ...

I recommend OmniGraffle Pro (http://www.omnigroup.com/omniGraffle) from the Omni Group. They have a standard and pro version. You can download trial version of either the standard or pro version.

Quicky by BlackOp is my choice. it lets you do lossless webcam video capture. I then do a frame dump from the video with Quicktime Pro 7

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 ...

No apps come directly to mind that are that generic. Though I use PogoPlug for the very thing you describe. It is basically a private cloud. The device itself is very inexpensive, less than $50, and there are applications for all of the mobile platforms that will upload your pictures automatically. You just need to plug the PogoPlug into your network and ...

Interarchy is a FTP client which provides many other protocol, including SCP and SFTP.

It looks like Fugu does scp and even won an Apple Design Award for best use of open source (in 2003). Edit: Downside: it is a PPC app, so doesn't work unless you are still on Snow Leopard.

I am a big fan of Arq (http://www.haystacksoftware.com/arq/), which works just like TimeMachine but with remote backups on Amazon S3/Glacier.

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).

https://hubstaff.com does this but you need to select the project manually. At the end of the day, you can see all the projects that you've worked on for that day, week, month, etc... and the exact amount of time spent on each.

Though its difficult method, I just want you to know it exists in the worst case. You can also do it manually by exporting the messages from C:\Users[USERNAME]\AppData\Local\Nokia\Nokia Suite (the name of the db might be like sms_db.sqlite). There are many tools to read SQLite db like MesaSQLite for Mac and a firefox plugin for Firefox browser. Then using ...

I've never used it, but give xrdp a look - bet that iRAPP will be your best option.

While I'd second running a script like explained above by user3936, I've used this before: http://www.apimac.com/mac/timer/ It has a free version and a paid.

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

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. ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

I recommend you try the Google for that. The explanations on how to will take to much space in here, but if you follow the instructions here, it is explained nicely.

Time Machine supports remote backups with some limitations (many of which have workarounds). I've been using it over LAN for a while with no problems and not too much CPU usage, so I'm not sure why you're having CPU usage problems. The best alternative IMO is Carbon Copy Cloner. It supports remote backups and gives you tons of customization including fully ...
