Applications :: Google Notifier

Oct 11, 2009

First off, I absolutely love this app

However, it checks for email really randomly.

Sometimes I'll click on the mail icon and it hasn't checked for mail in over 15min.

Is there anyway to force it to check for new email every minute?

Applications :: Only Small Artwork Format In ITunes 10?

Sep 2, 2010

So I got a bit surprised after I installed iTunes 10 that I can't adjust the artwork in list view bigger! Anyone else noticed this? In iTunes 9 you could just drag the bar besides the artwork and it would increase as much as you liked. Now if you click on Album by artist you can choose artwork small - medium - large, but it's not big enough!

IMac :: Key Chain And Google Notifier

Jun 22, 2009

I'm a recently converted PC user and so far we love our iMac. The only issue we're having is with Key Chain and the Google Notifier. On my account I use the Gmail Notifier with no issues what so ever, on my Wife's account every time she logs in the Gmail Notifier asks her for her account information, when she inputs it, she is then prompted to input another password for the Key Chain. Every time she logs in it happens. The odd thing is that when I search for the Key Chain program in her profile I find the program, and I'm able to access it, however when I search for it in mine nothing comes up. We both have admin accounts, and the first account created was mine. Is Key Chain a separate program or does it come as part of OSX?

Applications :: ITunes File Management Apps?

Feb 11, 2009

I would love any input from those with some experience. My problem is common I think. I have an itunes library that says 120gb. I have an itunes folder that says 140gb. I have a bunch of exclamation points, some of which the files are there, some not.

I don't want to spend 40 hours fixing it!

I have been looking for an app that:

1) finds the dead tracks (really dead and files missing) and removes them

2) finds the files in my folder that aren't linked and add them to library....I know I may have deleted those at some point but honestly with this much data missing I can start that process over. Would rather have the stuff in...that out, of the library

3) find dupes and help me get rid of them. i have used Dupe eliminator and this works OK...would like one app to use to do all these things.

Applications :: Moving Free Apps From One ITunes Account To Another

Jan 8, 2011

Paypal limited my account yesterday so do not use various IP addresses when you're paying using Paypal.

I'm thinking of opening a new account using a new email address. Therefore I have to open a new iTunes account too.

What I'm worried about are the sixty free apps I'm using on iPad. Will I be able to update free apps using the new account or I have to redownload all of them?

Applications :: How To Transfer ITunes Library Including Apps

Jul 14, 2010

I just got a new MacBook Pro 15" and I love it. I just have a quick question, though--how do I go about transferring my itunes stuff from my old Mac laptop to my new one? I tried consolidating the library, and then dragging the iTunes file to the new computer (and then going into preferences and selecting the iTunes Media folder location), but that didn't work.

We're hunting for a small printer for a crowded office space. There's a not much desk space or shelf space.

Only need something to print. No scanning, faxing or other functions! Hoping we can get Canon that is compatible with the inkjet 40 and 41 cartridges as we already have a printer that uses those.

ITunes :: Unable To Download Apps, Upgrades Apps Or Sync With Macbook?

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.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8), also iPhone 4

Applications :: ITunes - Receive Error Every Time - Update IPhone Apps

Oct 18, 2010

I receive this error every time I tell iTunes to download the updates to my iPhone apps. Funny thing is, I only get the error once, if I click Update All again it goes through without a problem. This has been going on for almost 6 months through multiple versions of iTunes, iOS and a whole new iPhone setup from scratch.

Applications :: Itunes Tyakes Long To Open / Lags When Scrolling Through Apps

Apr 25, 2009

I love the idea of a one-stop media center like iTunes, but as each new feature is added it just feels too big and slow to me now. It takes forever to open, it lags even when I just try scrolling through apps, it sends regular genius updates to Apple, it has a radio, ringtones, movies, tv shows, the list goes on. Does anyone else feel the same way?

OS X :: USB Photoreaders Not Showing On Desktop / Disk Utility Seems Unable To See Them

Oct 11, 2009

I have two USB cardreaders. One is (I think) a USB 1, unbranded. The other is a USB 2 branded Seitec). Our cameras both use Sony Memory Stick Pro Duos). They both of worked with both my wife and my iMacs under 10.5.11. Both machines (hers from 2006, mine an Intel Core 2 Duo from 2007) have been happily upgraded to SL 10.6.1... but now the cardreaders work with her machine, but not with mine. They don't mount on the desktop. I have tried various combinations ... attaching them through keyboard /back of iMac, powered USB hub. Sometimes they are recognised by System Profiler, sometimes not! Disk Utility seems unable to see them at all, so I can't get it to mount them.

However, when I leave the card in my camera and connect it direct to the keyboard (or whatever socket I choose!) the computer recognises the camera immediately I switch it on, and downloads quite happily

ITunes For Mac :: Play Single Or Small Set Of MP3 / Other Audio Files And Then Stop

Jun 26, 2014

I download an mp3 file.  One of them is for a class I'm taking that has audio files as part of the course.  If I double click in Finder on the file, it begins playing in iTunes and when done, iTunes goes on to play something else.  While online is a live class, I did this and iTunes picked up a recording of a discussion I had recorded and played it aloud with my live mic to the entire class.

There are a number of things I hate about iTunes, this is but one.  In general I use it without trouble.  However, if I construct a playlist, when that list is exhausted it in some fashion known only to iitself and the developers chooses somewhere else to continue.  It tends to think of itself as a super large iPod and keeps playing until I manually stop it.  Since I have many days of audio in the library, this is not particularly sensible. What is the best way to play a single or small set of mp3 or other audio files and then stop?   iMac with Mavericks 10.9.3

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.

Applications :: ITunes Unknown Error (-3237) On Vista Desktop?

Mar 21, 2009

I just recently had an iTunes Unknown Error -3237 on my Windows Vista Desktop. My iPhone and iTouch doesn't appear in iTunes but show up in My Computer. I plugged it into my sisters Toshiba laptop and it is detected just fine. I plugged it into my MBP and it is detected fine as well. I don't know what the issue is for iTunes. I am running iTunes 8.1. My iPhone is synced with that computer and now I can't sync music to it in fear of losing the current ones I have on my phone. Also I get a iTunes Store error as well.

It won't let me onto the iTunes Store. It just comes up with an error saying there is a network issue to to check it. My internet is working fine but I can't figure out why iTunes is freaking out on me ~_~. iTunes Store works fine on my MBP and sister's laptop. My iPhone backups are all on that computer and same for my applications that aren't on my phone. I have tried reinstalling iTunes and it doesn't remedy the issue. I tried turning off iPod Services and starting it back up to no avail.

OS X :: External Drive And Disks Don't Show On Desktop, Visible In Disk Utility, Can't Burn DVD

Feb 8, 2010

Disks I put in the Superdrive, external hard drives, or anything in the USB or Firewire (thumbdrive, etc) -- nothing shows up on the desktop. All are visible in Disk Utility. USB thumbdrives and external hard drives are visible in the sidebar in Finder, but disks are not (only disk utility).

Because of this I can't burn a disk because the disk is not being recognized. In Disk Utility, the external hard drives appear mounted and can be opened in Finder, but why aren't they appearing on my desktop (they used to)?
