Applications :: How To Auto-hide Apps When Switching Between Apps

Oct 12, 2009

I'm looking for a way to keep distraction to a minimum when working. I'd like to have an app (or a setting) that enables me to automatically hide any apps that I switch out of. Are there any apps or hidden settings within OS X out there that would solve this issue for me? I know about Spirited Away, but it doesn't work for me and hasn't been updated in a while.

I'm running OS X v10.6.1.

Feb 9, 2012

I want to let my wife use my Macbook Pro until I can get her her own. But I have a lot of apps installed that she would never use and I want to make it as user friendly as possible.  

So is there a way to hide apps on a per user basis to make it as easy as possible for her.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: It Keeps Switching Between Multitasking Apps Automatically?

Apr 28, 2012

Sometimes, I'm browsing the web, and Lion will slide back to my desktop, with the menu bar at the top of the screen (the white one) still showing Opera as the active application. Then, after a few seconds, it'll switch back. Then back again. It happens during casual browsing, when I'm filling out an HTML form (like this one), and in applications besides Opera, like iTunes, Mail and Final Cut.I've tried  kill-all Dock and restarting the Finder through the force quit menu, to no avail.

OS X Mavericks :: Slow Startup And Apps Switching

Jun 20, 2014

I'm verifying such an annoying problem, mostly at startup that appears to solve automatically after OS Mavericks is running.  

Sometimes my iMac boot until the login windows in 45 seconds which is very good, but most of times I have to wait 30-40 minutes for the login windows to appears

and everything is running so slowly then.  

Using the following command in Terminal:

syslog -k Sender kernel -k Message CReq 'GPU |I/O e|find tok|n Cause: -|NVDA(|timed? ?o' | tail | open -efsyslog -k Sender kernel -k Message CReq 'GPU |I/O e|find tok|n Cause: -|NVDA(|timed? ?o' | tail | open -ef 

This is the result: 

Jun 15 20:39:51 localhost kernel[0] <Debug>: [IOBluetoothHCIController][handleACLPacketTimeout] -- Disconnecting due to device not responding (ACL Packet timed out) for connection handle 0xc

Jun 15 20:40:00 localhost kernel[0] <Debug>: [AppleBluetoothHIDKeyboard][waitForHandshake][35-20-ab-11-07-cd] Timeout waiting for handshake

MacBook Air :: Keeps Switching Between Desktop And Full Screen Apps By Itself

May 3, 2012

My 11" MacBook Air recently just started randomly switching from full screen apps back to the desktop by itself without me using the 4-fingered swipe to change desktops/apps. I've tried quitting (almost) every app and no matter what app is left open, it keeps sliding from the full screen app back to the desktop. I've rebooted the laptop a good three times and it's also been fully shut down and turned back on twice and it still keeps switching.

App Store :: Apps Are Missing And All Listed As Hidden But Can't Unhide The Apps

May 30, 2012

Under purchases I'm getting "you have not purchased any apps." Under Itunes in the Cloud all my apps are listed as hidden but when I click "view hidden purchases" it says I do not have any hidden purchases. I have three Macs and all are experiencing the same issue so this is an account problem and not a computer software problem. The funny thing is that it's still recognizing updates.Yes, I've tried signing out and back in to view my account with no luck. The only thing I did weird last night was I disabled the Itunes store and automatic downloading on one computer. This morning when I had the above problem I put all the settings back.

Dec 18, 2009

I have a new 21.5" iMac and have been playing around with everything. When I started two weeks ago I had an Apps folder with the Apps logo on the dock to the right of the dotted separation. All the applications are there lined up with the first application showing but for my consternation I cannot put the Applications in there folder like it was when I started out two weeks ago. This is the Snow Leopard OS.

ITunes :: Transfer New Apps From Iphone Without Replacing Apps Don't Want?

May 10, 2012

When you sync your iPhone you sometimes get the following message: 

Itunes has found purchased items on the iphone thats arenot present in your itunes library. 

There are two reasons for this:

1. I have deleted apps in iTunes that I don't want, but not on the iPhone. I don't want to transfer the apps back to iTunes because I want them gone.

2. I have bought apps on the iPhone that I do want to keep. I want these transferred to iTunes. 

So if I have both types 1 and 2 then there is no good answer. Preferably iTunes should offer to sync and choose which apps to transfer and what not to transfer. Is there a way to change this behaviour? By the time I sync I don't know what I've done so I'm usually not sure how to answer the question. Sometimes I like to bulk delete apps in iTunes--it is easier than doing it on the iPhone.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Dock Does Not Show Up And The Auto-hide Cannot Turn Off

May 2, 2012

I found my dock is gone. When I moved my pointer over the edge of screen where the dock was, the dock does not show up. I went to the Dock preference, it seems that the option "Automatically hidd and show the Dock" is chosen. I turned it off. It shows no difference. And I went to the Dock preference again, the Option is still chosen. And the Mac->Dock-> Turn Hiding Off is not functional. And also the hot key combination. Now I have to went to the lunchpad to see my dock and all my applications. It is really annoying.

Applications :: What Cool Little OS X Apps Do You Use?

Jan 29, 2004

I was just curious what little applications people are using to mac OS X that much cooler. Here's what i'm using...

I use Menu Meter. It puts a little upload/download meter in the menu bar so I can see what's going on with my network. It also has the ability to display cpu and ram usage, but I don't use those.

It's also use Delocalizer it goes through ever application and removes all of the foreign language documentation associated with them. Unless you are incredibly interested in learning how to use iTunes in Mandarin Chinese, I promise that there is about 200+ mb of space you can free up. (Ignore the website's warning, i've used it on 10.3 and it worked fine)

Finally I use Synergy for it's iTunes capabilities.

Applications :: Best Way To Back Up Apps

Feb 15, 2009

I want to do a clean OS install and I'm curious how you guys back up your apps. For example; 1Password, Screenium, AppZapper etc... are apps that I own but I'm not aware of a way to back them up to an external hdd along with the registration code (like I still have it ) and say the associated files within the app.I got a lot of time machine discussion when I tried looking for a topic like mine so if I missed this it may still be good info for others getting ready for Snow Leopard.

Applications :: Finding List Of Apps For MAC?

Sep 5, 2010

I really wanted to make this topic sticky if possible.

There are many people out here who create a lot of posts asking about what kind of app are good and what do they do ?. There are dozens of videos on youtube on whats in your doc (most of which are outdated).

Honestly I think if people could share what software they have on their macs (both free and payed), with a description of what is does, would help thousands of new mac owners. I looked through the topic on the very top with software recommendations, but it does look a bit dull with only 13 replies that point you to websites where you get bombarded by the insane quantity of software listed there with no proper advice.

I will list my software tomorrow once I get my MBP from repair.

Applications :: Shoutcast DJ / Won't Get Streaming Apps For Mac

Jul 16, 2006

It's just dumbfounding considering the fact that Mac's are the industry choice for A/V related tasks. It seems that online radio DJ'ing would be a big thing for Mac. Before switching to Mac 100% I used to run SAM Broadcaster from Spacial Audio. I think any online DJ would agree that SAM is the best online DJ streaming software ever made. It incorporates absolutely everything.

Why doesn't someone make a SAM "clone" for Mac? I'd pay out the arse for it. I'm huge in to online broadcasting and Nicecast just doesn't cut it, it's WEAK.

Out of rage I just sent Spacial Audio a development request to release SAM Broadcast for Mac OS X Let's see what they say, haha.

Applications :: Some Apple Apps Just Disappeared?

Jan 24, 2009

Last Thursday, i shut my MBP down and gave it to a friend to look after while I went on a driving lesson, OS X has a password so he couldn't have got in, but when i turned it back on that afternoon, some of my apps were missing, such as Address Book, iCal, iChat, iSync, Safari and a few others I still haven't noticed. I have been able to re-install the apps, but why did it happen in the first place?!?!

Early '08 Macbook Pro 2.5GHz version

EDIT: I haven't been able to re-install iSync, it isn't available on Apple's website for download, and other sites want me to pay. It isn't a re-install option when i put the Mac OS X Install Disc 1 in. Any help in re-installing iSync would be very helpful.
