comment Why do these apps “like to access the microphone”?
@Melwan does that include Square and/or PayPal Here? I'm guessing not. In other words @ anyone: Does denying Square and/or PayPal Here access to the microphone make them not work? I'm guessing so.

comment Free U2 album doesn't show up in music library, just iPod
I was having trouble too. Updating iTunes didn't help, or at least wasn't enough. The instructions in this answer aren't clear, but after I clicked the word in the red oval, I clicked on the <arrow out of a cloud> in the top right corner of the U2 album cover, and it started downloading.

comment How to wipe huge .MobileBackups folder?
It will make more free space in terms of what tools like du report. I just ran sudo tmutil disable local ; sudo tmutil enable local (thanks, @cablesm) and as a result, du reports another 38 GB free, which I need at the moment.

@K.-MichaelAye: Did you try my answer (currently below and marked 0)? It's much faster to try too!

@TobyAllen There is an alternative! See my answer (currently below and marked 0)! That's why this answer is massive overkill.

comment Exporting iPod Touch library
Agreed. The free version did work recently, per this month-old article: iskysoft.com/topic-ipod/… so I would say it's hardly confirmed that it doesn't work on 10.8. I'll try it on a clean OS (I have one fairly handy for that) and 10.6 (ditto). Updating your answer.

Re the fully free version: He DOES now have the source code. However, when I tried the free version on my 10.8.5 Mac, it crashed on launch. Is it working for anyone?
