Re: Lion on MPB Late '08


Thank you for your answer!
Because on my Mac even Snow Leopard doesn't run smooth evertime. Maybe with Lion it will be better!

Lion on MPB Late '08


Hi,
has anyone tested out Lion on a MacBook Pro 15 inch late '08 with 2,4Ghz processor yet?
Does it run smooth or is it laggy at all?
Thanks in advance!

Re: Double that s for app icon files!


Hmm, looks like you might have found a bug. I remember seeing this a while ago but not thinking anything of it. I'll raise it with Wikidot.

.app file extension?


I am finding a lot of uploaded images with ".app" extensions? Is this something new in Lion for picture formats, or just a user mistake?

Double that s for "app icon" files!


Why does Wikidot, or whomever, add an extra "s" to every "s" found in the name of an app icon file? For example, "Smart Scroll.png" becomes "SSmart-SScroll.png". I am guessing the "-" has to be added for some technical reason too.

Re: Application/AppleScript to auto-mark apps as compatible


I Think this is a great idear, just like the Macupdate app.
I would be great to an app/script that could do this…

Re: Random App Finder button


That explains it. Probably 60 seconds went by at the time I clicked it around the tenth time. :)

Re: Skype


I have not seen that. It works good for me in Skype,iChat and all the photo apps. I use a Logitech USB cam. I have not tested the built in cam on my macbook pro, just the one on my mac pro

Re: Random App Finder button


Unfortunately the random page is cached for 60 seconds (and there's no way around this) - so you have to stay on a page for 60 seconds before clicking it again to get different pages consistently.

Random App Finder button


I think the button is not working too well, for me at least. It takes around 10 clicks on the button for a new app page to appear.

Re: Candidate for review


This has now been implemented with a Lion-inspired segmented control. Pages can be marked for review by moderators, or tagged as a duplicate app (i.e. there are two copies of the same app in the database).

Re: New: personal docks


Personal docks have been upgraded - they're now 50% bigger (i.e. they now show 9 apps, instead of 6) and are fixed to the bottom of the window. The applications folder next to the trashcan links to a grid showing all of your docked apps, with the status indicators engaged - this way you can use your dock to keep track of the apps you use most & easily check their compatibility.

Re: Candidate for review


Or maybe combine them? A user could tag it, then choose a reason; one being "duplicate", another being "PPC", etc. :)

Re: Candidate for review


Good idea - I'll add this soon. I'm also going to add a button to mark an app as a duplicate.

Candidate for review


I think there should be a way for the user to tag a page for "review" by you (admin). An example of something that would be tagged is the page for OSEx. (This mainly depends on if Rosetta is actually being dropped by Lion.) This application is not only PPC, not only was last updated in 2002, but the "homepage" does not work.

RoaringApps for iOS 5?


Here's a quick poll for you - would you use a version of RoaringApps to check compatibility of iOS apps with iOS 5? Or is it pointless given that Apple reviews every app before it is released? Have your say now!

Application/AppleScript to auto-mark apps as compatible?


Hi,
I've been using the site for a while now, and even updated/added some apps to the site. However, I feel like a lot is being missed on the site while the user has to manually search for all of his/her applications on the site.

This can be fixed by creating a OS X app/AppleScript that will scan /Applications and mark the apps with Labels as follows:
Green - app working on Lion
Yellow - app partially works on Lion (which lets the user know that he should check out the site and see what those problems are)
Red - app doesn't work on Lion
Grey - app status is unknown on Lion/app not found on the site

I think this will be a huge improvement to the site, and will sure to draw many users to use it as we come closer to the Lion launch this coming July.

P.S
I would do it myself, but I don't know how to code other than some basics really. But I would gladly help out if I can.
