10 Cool AppleScripts You Should Try

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2009

The scripting language built in to the Mac’s OS is referred to as AppleScript. It uses an English-based language to automate tasks on the Mac. AppleScripts are located in your Library/Scripts folder and the Script Editor can be launched by double-clicking a script where it describes what the script does and you can run it by clicking Run.

Here is a list of 10 cool AppleScripts that you should try.

1. Add to Folder Names

With Add To Folder Names you can add something at the beginning or end of all folder names on the front-most Finder window. Items on the desktop will be used by the script, if no Finder windows are open. This saves a lot of time as you don’t have to go through a large group of folders one by one just to add something to the folder name.

2. Add to File Names

Similarly, Add To File Names changes files in the front Finder window, instead of folders.

3. Trim Folder Names

The next two scripts are the opposite of the two mentioned above. Trim Folder Names lets one trim the text from the beginning or the end of a folder. This helps in altering the folder names that you want to change or shorten.

4. Trim File Names

Trim File Names is similar to Trim Folder Names, except that instead of folder names, this can cut the start or end of file names.

5. Finder Windows- Hide All

All the Finder windows that are open can be minimized into the dock by using the Finder Windows – Hide All script.

6. Finder Windows-Show All

Finder Windows – Show All will do the exact opposite, and bring all Finder windows that are in the Dock back out onto the Desktop.

7. Crazy Message Text

On running Crazy Message Text, a dialog asks the user to type the text to create the “crazy” mail message with. After entering text and on hitting OK, a Mail message is created, on which the text is pasted with each letter in a different size, font and colour.

8. Create New Message

The Create New Message Script is useful to browse the Web or RSS feeds. It lets you make a Mail message from whatever application you’re in at the moment. A small dialog asks the receiver’s name, address, the subject, content, signature, and the “from” address. After clicking OK, Mail opens and the message that you entered can be sent.

9. iTunes Remote Control

The iTunes Remote Control is the perfect substitute for an iTunes controller. On running the script, a dialog pops up and you can make iTunes “pause”, “play,” or “stop” among other commands.

10. Clipboard Viewer

The Clipboard Viewer script shows a dialog with whatever is on the clipboard. If you have a file copied, the filename will be displayed.

The Scripts folder contains tons of other cool Applescripts. And what’s more, You can even customize or even write your own AppleScripts!

Is an iPod the Best Mp3 Player Choice?

Thursday, March 19th, 2009

Apple is incredibly dominant in the mp3 player market – it has over 80% of the US market for example. Why is this?

Firstly because iPod’s still lead the way for music playing capabilities – most independent reviews say they just sound great. Secondly, the iTunes is the best music management software. On top of that, the iTunes music store is the easiest to use and has the greatest choice.

And last but certainly not least iPod’s are just such amazingly sexy devices!

The iPod model range changes regularly.

iPod touch

The latest iPod is the iPod Touch. The iPod touch has the incredible touch screen user interface, plus it feels sexy in your hand, thanks to its amazingly thin, contoured enclosure made of polished stainless steel. The iPod touch provides up to 36 hours of audio playback or 6 hours of video playback (which is enough to watch three or four movies between charges).

It also has a built-in speaker so you can listen to the music, dialogue, and action without headphones, perfect for casual listening.

iPod Classic

The iPod classic comes with 120GB of internal disk storage, which equates to 30,000 songs, 150 hours of video, or 25,000 photos. It is available in silver or striking new black and now has an upgraded all-metal enclosure composed of anodized aluminum and polished stainless steel.

You can also use the new Apple Remote with an optional iPod Universal Dock to control your music, videos and slideshows. There is of course a huge range of third party accessories with similar capabilities to the Apple ones – sometimes even better than Apple’s and often at lower prices.

iPod nano

Apple’s tagline for the nano is “impossibly small” and it certainly is incredibly small and light. It is currently available in 8GB and 16GB sizes, which hold about 2,000 and 4,000 songs respectively.

The nano has a colour display, so you can view album art as you play your music. The sexy feature taken from the iPod touch – give your iPod nano a shake and it shuffles to another song in your library – thanks to the built-in accelerometer.

Because it is so small and light, Apple emphasises the nano’s wearability. You can easily wear it around your neck or keep it on an armband.

iPod shuffle

The shuffle is the entry level iPod model and is even smaller than the iPod nano – about the size of a pack of gum and weighs less than a car key.

The shuffle doesn’t have a display so its playlist control is fairly basic – play, pause, skip, repeat, hold and shuffle (random).

Like other iPod models the shuffle has been upgraded to use anodized aluminum and is available in blue, green, pink, red, and original silver

It is easy to hook up to a computer – just plug it directly into a USB 1.1 or 2.0 port, or use an optional Dock. You can sync a specific iTunes Playlist, or drag and drop individual songs or albums from iTunes into the iPod shuffle. The shuffle also automatically charges during syncing.

Summary

Apple still holds a clear lead over other mp3 music player vendors. The iPods sets the pace in most aspects – storage, packaging, sex appeal and now even price. There is a huge 3rd party add on market that gives the iPod owner a wide choice of accessories.

Really, from the position it now has, Apple has to make big mistakes or just get complacent to lose its #1 market position.

11 Ways to Market Your iPhone and iPod Touch App

Tuesday, March 17th, 2009

While there is no magic formula or single marketing action that may do the trick for you, these strategies can provide you with a framework to help you increase company exposure, sales and profit. Marketing your iPhone/Touch app is definitely a process that can take time.

I will let you know that we have not found price reductions to be the best strategy. We initially thought this might be very effective as the App store structure is set up to rank applications by the number of total downloads. Higher total sales and total downloads by price category are not currently recognized with Apple’s system.

Keep in mind for instance that if your app was $5 and you decided to lower it to $0.99, you’d have tell sell five times as many just to break even. Now you might temporarily increase exposure this way, but at the expense of maximizing your profit margins when you are most apt to do well at the beginning of your product life cycle. Customer support issues may increase by a factor of five as well.

That being said, there’s nothing wrong with adjusting your app’s price in the beginning to find its best market price (which might change over time).

There are 24,455 apps and counting, so let’s jump in and get started!

1. The World (iTunes App Store) Is Flat

Consider your potential international market right from the moment of conceptualization. There are people all over the planet eager to use and benefit from quality applications. Initially we intended to include the metric system and local currency in our app, but decided to push it back until version 1.1. We were so eager to start the submission process with Apple and this ended up negatively affected our sales without question. I recommend taking that extra time to make your app useful to the international community, or even a few key markets (China, Russia, Central and South America, Japan, and Germany come to mind).

What does this mean? If currencies are used, auto-detect the user’s local currency under their device’s general settings; and if applicable handle currency conversions. Make your website, instructions, and sales pages easy to understand and use images to support your text. Consider that for many people, English may be their second or third language. Make your software more intuitive by choosing symbols over text wherever possible. Reach out to bloggers for your niche market in Europe and Asia. Include a complimentary promo code in your correspondence. It can’t hurt.

Consider this: we received nearly $1,000 in sales from Italy because of a single online post written in Italian! Now you could go further with this and have your sales page and help instructions translated into major languages like Spanish or Chinese. Prices for quality work vary and you’ll need to get someone fluent in the language to double check their work.

Remember there are 65 different versions of iTunes around the world and counting. Single apps can be developed for use on the iPhone and the iPod Touch. How big is the market for both? Apple does not breakdown sales of individual product lines. A conservative estimate with 4.4 million iPhone sales and 22.7 million iPod sales for last quarter would be about 7 million in three months. That’s an average of 78,000 new devices coming online daily. Incredible and almost scary. It can’t last forever, but wow!

2. Create a Lite or Demo Version

Apple lets developers offer both a free and paid version of the same app, and a free sample is probably the most successful marketing strategy ever. People want to try things. There are plenty of CrApps (crappy apps) out there, so why should people risk money on an app they know nothing about from a company they know even less about? If you can give people a taste that is just enough, they’ll buy the whole meal from you! This way you take away much of the risk.

There are numerous strategies for this, but make sure the lite version sales page is clear in its limitations vs. the paid or full version. If you truncate the app too much, people may think it’s a complete dud and see no value in paying you anything for the premium release. Give people a clear idea of what they’re getting into and this strategy could make you rich. Developer Ethan Nicholas offers motivation to go this route in a recent Wired piece:

When iShoot launched in October, business was slow for a while. And then Nicholas found some spare time to code a free version of the app – iShoot Lite, which he released January. Here’s how that helped: Inside iShoot Lite he advertised the $3, full version of iShoot. Users downloaded the free version 2.4 million times. And that led 320,000 satisfied iShoot Lite players to pay for iShoot.

3. Go Free

Now this is something that can be considered for different reasons. Right now “in app” advertising lacks sophistication. When I say that, I mean we don’t have Google AdSense yet. I’m sure it’s coming, but embedded advertising that does not relate to the content in any manner is really intrusive in my personal opinion. I still read about certain developers making tons of money with embedded app advertising, but it’s hard enough to get people to click on ads if they’re relevant. When they’re not, the click-through rate is pretty low. If your app is something that people use again and again, advertising can still work. We personally did not find it successful as it’s much easier to make about 70 cents off of a 99 cent app than to earn the same amount with ads. You could also add a PayPal donation button as AppCubby did, but this probably won’t work for you unless you have a large pre-existing customer or fan base.

You could also introduce your app for free. Get people using it, talking about it, and receive positive feedback. Then start charging people. Perfectly acceptable with Apple.

Looking at it from a long-term perspective, you might completely give away the first app to get people talking, create a base and build your brand. After all, nothing spreads like free (especially good free). You can use this to gather contact info and feedback from your initial users and turn them into customers for your next app or product. Be sure to include a “share” feature inside your free app (inside all of your apps!). Make sharing as easy as possible.

4. Send Out a Press Release

PRMac, a free (or almost free) press release distribution service, and the MacNN (Macintosh News Network) syndicate (free to submit) are definitely worth the price of submission. Competing services can charge over $600 for distribution within the United States alone, so these are valuable and less costly alternatives. They say the press release is dead, but these offerings directly targeted your potential customers. You never know who you might reach; and it’s vital to provide a press release when soliciting all forms of media.

5. Contact the Top 100 Blogs

Technorati can provide you with the current list. Use a conversational style, get right to the point and include a promo code. Figure out what could sell them on your company. If there’s an interesting angle or story around your app, this could increase your chances. Ask them if you could do a guest post. Who knows? When you have sites like Gizmodo that get 3 million page views per day, this can absolutely turbocharge sales!

6. Constantly Improve Your Sales Page

This one is pretty basic, but often overlooked. Look at the sales pages of other top apps. What are they doing? Emulate what works and keep researching to spark ideas. You can display up to five images as of this writing, so use them! Use the images that sell your product best. Ask other people what grabs their attention. Use quotes from reviewers; share benefits first and foremost. Customers are not always logical, so don’t bore them with statistics. How will your application make their lives better?

7. Use Customer Feedback to Build a Better Product

This is two parts. First, timely respond to customer emails and realize that every interaction with customers, whether good or bad, is a marketing opportunity. When you get feedback via email or through your customer reviews, consider and incorporate these improvements. You can’t please everyone all of the time, and you may have limited resources, so you won’t be able to add everything. Some great ideas are bound to come your way. First-time users can also let you see how your software is being used from a beginner’s perspective.

The second way to receive customer feedback is to embed analytics code in your application. Flurry Analytics and Pinch Media both offer tracking software that will provide insight into how customers are interacting with your application, including real-time download information, all for free. This can be especially useful if 90% of your customers are not using a particular feature. Maybe they don’t know it’s even there!

8. Continually Update Your Application

Here’s a great feature of the App Store. New versions move back to the top of what’s new in your category. Incorporating features your customers want, thereby making your product better, coupled with maintaining visibility, can help increase or at least maintain steady sales. Don’t abuse this by changing a few words in your help section and then resubmitting or you could ruin this for everybody. If you are working hard to make your product better, the distribution channel can reward you with increased exposure, because you are renewing.

9. Advertise

Google AdWords and AdMob are possible options. I believe we’re not there yet, but we’re pretty close. AdWords does offer the ability to advertise on mobile devices with a full internet browser, but that doesn’t just include the iPhone and Touch. You’ll get Androids and more depending on which territory you advertise. Right now they haven’t developed conversion tracking for apps either, and without this you can just burn through cash with little results to show for your efforts. You won’t know which keywords are working or aren’t working. There is one way to track sales using this method: become an iTunes affiliate by joining LinkShare. You can create a link to your sales page in the App store and receive a 5% commission on qualifying purchases.

AdMob has app advertising down better than Google so far. You are able to track your conversions and target relevant Apple devices. You can even target those that are either on or off the WiFi network, which is pretty cool. The downside to this is that you are paying at least 10 cents a click to send someone to your App store sales page. No guarantee of sales here and depending on the price of your application, this leaves very little margin to spend on advertising. It can take a hundred clicks just to get an actual sale, so keep that in mind. Also, since AdMob doesn’t target your ads very well, the people clicking are not actually seeking what you’re offering as they would on a Google search.

Here are a few examples of Google AdWords ads below from companies with money to burn; this luxury is not something everyone can afford and it may not be worthwhile anyway.

GOOGLE ADWORDS ADS:

Shopping Lists At Your Fingertips.

www.Apple.com/Kraft

EXAMPLE #2

Free iPhone Download

Get Local Search Power On Your

iPhone Today! Find. Map. Save. Go.

YellowPages.com/iPhone

One last consideration: even if you break even from your advertising, you could increase your ranking in the store, and thereby receive more sales from the increased exposure. If you are popular, sales can feed off themselves. iTunes is a distribution channel, but so is Walmart. If you are featured next to the register, you’re gonna get more sales. If you’re at the bottom of the shelf on aisle 34, good luck!

10. Use Social Networks

Facebook Fan pages, online forums, and quality comments on top blogs and news sites can help you get conversations started about your company. Comments are even crawled and tracked by the major search engines. Be part of the discussion and actually share something relevant or this could work against you. You could quickly end up being considered spam (and despised or banished by your fellow netizens). Subtlety here will carry you far. Also create profiles to further your cause.

11. Get Featured in the App Store

This one is tricky obviously because how do you make it a part of your marketing plan? You do not choose, but are chosen. I will say this for what it’s worth. I contacted iTunes about a month ago and asked to be featured Today we are. It never hurts to ask and it can be worth quite a bundle! You never know who you’re going to reach. Someone may say something to someone else. That’s how it happens.

Thus far, we’ve increased our average daily sales almost tenfold. We are currently (2/23/09-3/9/09) featured on the front page of the App Store in iTunes under “New And Noteworthy” and #7 in “What’s New” on the iPhone/Touch.

Every time I contact media, even if nothing comes of it, I’m sharing my company and my product with powerful people (or people in contact with powerful people) and I never know directly or indirectly where this can lead.

Keep plugging away and please share your ideas and experiences with me. I’d love to hear about them. I wish you the greatest success!

Transferring Music From IPod to PC

Tuesday, February 24th, 2009

Did your computer crash and all your music is only on your iPod? Do you want to transfer all of your MP3’s from your iPod to a new PC, or use your iPod to transfer some songs to your work computer? You don’t need to purchase special software as some people will lead you to believe. If you have Microsoft Windows, iTunes, and an iPod (set to show up as a removable drive); That’s all you need! I’m going to walk you through the steps needed to do this.

Set Windows to show hidden files

Right click on your [START] button and select “explore”. Click on [Tools] at the top, then “Folder Options…”. This will bring you to a windows with customizable folder options. At the top, click the “View” Tab then scroll down halfway. Click on “Show hidden files and folders” and uncheck “Hide extensions for known file types”.

Find songs hidden on your iPod

Plug your iPod into your PC via the USB cable. The iPod should show up as a removable drive (for example purposes, we’ll call it the E: drive). Go to “My Computer” and then press your F3 key to pull up a search sub-window. Choose “All files and folders” if a little dog asks you any questions. Then, fill out the form as shown in Figure3 and click “Search”… This will show you all the MP3’s that are on your iPod. Yes, they have weird names, but the song tags (Title, Artist, Genre, etc) are all still there. iTunes will rename them with their tag information when you import them.

When it is done searching, select them all by pressing “CTRL %2B A” and copy them (right click -> copy) all into a new folder on your desktop (right click on your desktop and select New -> Folder). Copying may take a while depending on how many songs you are moving around. Once they are done copying, go to the next step.

Import the songs using iTunes

Install the latest iTunes if you don’t already have it (refer to the apple documentation), then open iTunes. Immediately, click on [Edit] at the top, then click on Preferences. Once the window pops up, click on the Advanced tab and make sure “Keep iTunes Music folder organized” and “Copy files to iTunes Music folder when adding to library” are selected (VERY IMPORTANT). Then click Ok.

Now you will import all the music you copied. Click on [File] at the top and select “Add Folder to Library”. It will ask you which folder to add. Navigate to your desktop and select the New Folder you created that contains all your music, then click OK.

Relax and let iTunes work

Thats it! As it imports, iTunes will use the tags to rename the songs to the correct information. Don’t forget to delete the New Folder on your desktop when you are done. You no longer need these because iTunes copied them all to its own internal folder in your My Documents -> My Music folder.

Sincerely,

Review: iPod Classic 120 GB Black

Friday, January 30th, 2009
Apple iPod classic 120 GB Black

Apple iPod classic 120 GB Black

The only reason I give it 4 stars is because of the iTunes software, which doesn’t get the album cover from music you already had saved on your PC, which is basically the case for most users who buy an mp3 player, so if you have a zillion mp3 files already saved, be prepared to spend some time saving all the covers to all your files (painful, believe me). Nevertheless, the result is worth it: this little device has a software upgrade that allows it to show cover flow (like the newer touch devices), and once you select a song, it displays the cover in perspective with a nice mirrorlike surface under it, instead of square and frontally, which looks really cool.

Overlooking the album artwork flaw, I have to say this device is perfect for you if, like me, you are looking for a device which allows you to put all your music in it. I can see people having a lot of video content having something to say about its size (120GB) but I’m guessing people who fill up this device would fill up any drive given to them (even the ones ranging into the terabyte sizes, LOL) So, if you’re the regular guy who has a lot of music and even a bunch of audiobooks, for whom the biggest iPod touch is still too small (32 GB) and still too pricey to be worth it, then this is the perfect device for you. It’s compact, gorgeous, and you can easily connect it to pretty much almost anything with speakers without spending too much money other than a couple of bucks on adapter cables, so you can listen to it in your car, take it to a party, to every trip you make, and at home you can connect it easily to your PC speakers or to your home stereo.

Apple iPod classic 120 GB Black (6th Generation)

Technical Details

  • 120 GB capacity for 30,000 songs, 25,000 photos, or 150 hours of video
  • Up to 36 hours of music playback or 6 hours of video playback when fully charged
  • 2.5-inch color LCD with LED backlight and 320-by-240-pixel resolution
  • Supported audio formats: AAC, Protected AAC, MP3, MP3 VBR, Audible, Apple Lossless, AIFF, and WAV
  • Supported video formats: H.264, MPEG-4; Supported image file types: JPEG, BMP, GIF, TIFF, PSD (Mac only), and PNG

Two Basic Methods of Downloading and Watching Movies on Your IPhone 3G

Thursday, December 11th, 2008

If you are a movie buff and looking to enjoy your favorite entertainment on the go, downloading movies to your iPhone is the way to go and can put hours of enjoyment into your pocket. Before downloading movies onto your iPhone there are few things you will want to consider. Since there are so many available sites on the Internet for downloading a movie for your iPhone, you want to make certain you go with a reputable site that is legitimate and will not cause you problems with viruses and other malicious elements. You will also want to make certain your virus software is up to date before downloading anything.

Although it is possible to rip movies from DVD, if you would like your movies to be in the correct format (MP4), your best bet is to download them directly from a website like iTunes. The site provides literally hundreds of downloads from every genre for a very reasonable price.

In order to download from the iTunes site and set up your iPhone to watch movies you will need an account with iTunes. The process is similar to downloading to an iPod except the iPhone is a much more powerful version of the iPod.

If you do not mind converting your movie to the MP4 format, you will need to install a DVD to iPhone converter for Windows or Mac. The converter is also really handy for downloading YouTube, MySpace, and Google videos that otherwise rely on the Flash application in order to operate. Since iPhone does not support Flash you will need to convert them to MP4.

Another way to watch movies on your iPhone is to download them directly from sites on the Internet. There are many free sites as well as paid sites; however, many of the free sites also have many viruses permeating the environment so you probably would be better off paying a membership to a legitimate site with a good reputation. Most of the reputable sites will provide lifetime access with your membership and you will not have to worry about the expense of buying a whole new computer.

There is no limit to how many movies you can download, however, the amount you can actually store on your iPhone will depend upon your iPhone’s capacity. Normally, the standard size iPhone capacity ranges from 8G to 16G.

Basically, you are looking for two different methods of downloading and watching movies on your iPhone. You can opt to rip a favorite DVD movie to your computer and then install it on your iPhone 3G or you can choose to download movies to your iPhone 3G from a reliable Internet site.

Transfer IPod Files to Mac and ITunes

Tuesday, November 25th, 2008

Need to transfer iPod files from iPod playlist such as photo, movie, music to Mac? Or need to get your iPod files back to your iTunes library? I am afraid you will be frustrated if you don’t have a third party application to help you to do this job. We all know that Apple iPod user can put everthing compatible with iPod on iPod with iTunes, but iTunes lacks of the ability to copy the iPod media files back to iTunes, PC and Mac computer.

What’s worse, we just imagine that one day your computer crashed and all of your songs and media files are wiped out. You didn’t back up your files on another computer but your iPod. How could you get your iPod files back to your re-install computer?

Since iTunes will block users to iPod-to-Mac computer song, movie, photo transfer, why not give up iTunes and find out another way to build a bridge between iPod and Mac computer? Maybe, a third party application can copy everything off iPod and put them on your hard driver again without the help of iTunes.

There are a number of iPod to PC applications available for download on the internet. But most of them only work for your Windows PC, merely for Mac OS. 4Media iPod to Mac Transfer is a necessity for Mac iPod user who do not use iTunes to transfer files. To choose a good iPod to Mac transfer, I think there are several key points are very important.

The first thing is compatibility. You must make sure that the application can be well compatible with your iPod and Mac.

Secondly, The transfer must be very easy to use.

Thirdly, transfer speed. Just imagine that if you have a large collection of photo, movie, music on your iPod, how could bear speeding a whole day to transfer the files to Mac or iTunes. The most important thing is that the money refund policy.

Perhaps one of the most important things to consider is whether or not the iPod to Mac transfer program is backed by a 100% money back guarantee! I think this is not only the money back, but also the guarantee of the product’s quality.

Overall, if you want to put things back to Mac computer from iPod, I think a thirty application such as iPod to Mac transfer is a good choice.

A Ton of Tunes on iPhone

Monday, October 27th, 2008

Before, to be able to listen to your favorite music while you are on the road, you would need to carry around a CD player with you. Remember the time when you used to carry your bulky CD player? And yes of course, do you also remember how much time it took for you to choose the CD’s that you’d be playing while on the go? Such a hassle right?

But that was like several years ago when an Apple iPod or iPhone was not yet available in the market. And yes, those days are gone now… with the Apple iPhone around, you will have all of your favorite music right there at your fingertips.

Apple made it easy for you to find and add tons of tunes on your iPhone. With a single tap, you can quickly browse through your playlists, albums, artists, or songs. If you are also an Apple iPod user, then downloading tunes on your iPhone is much easier. To download music onto your iPhone from the internet, you will need to be connected to the Internet. It would be a great help if you have a really good broadband connection but dial up will certainly do. Music downloads are much smaller than movies, and once you have downloaded a track one time, it’s yours to keep. You may listen to it as many times as you like without downloading it again.

If you want to play a song but you can’t remember its title, you could think of the album name and find it on your iPhone through an iPhone feature called Cover Flow. The Cover Flow is a feature of iTunes that lets you browse through your iTunes library and looking at album covers, rather than text. And yes, this feature is also available on your iPhone.

Singing along with your favorite music is great especially if you are completely sure of the right lyrics. If you have added the songs with iTunes, you can have the lyrics displayed right there on the screen. But there’s a cool iPhone application called TuneWiki that provides music lyrics direct to your iphone, for free. TuneWiki is a self service lyrics-to-music playback synchronizing utility and related services. It opens your own music file, goes to the Internet to try to find lyrics via a simple search. When you listen to the music it shows the lyrics in step with the music. Almost like having a karaoke machine right there in front of you all the time.

There are a lot of places for the iPhone users to download music. But make sure to download from websites that are free of viruses and spyware, especially when you are downloading the music for free. If you own an Apple iPhone, you don’t have to bring that bulky CD player anymore. All you have to do is to tap on your iPhone. With your iPhone… your music is ready to play as you are ready to listen.
