Looking for feedback on my applescript app, give it a try!

http://www.cbreier.com/2012/06/art-utility-beta.html
I've started creating interfaces for some of my Illustrator scripts so that it would make them easier to use. There's a youtube demo of it at the above link. It's a standalone app so it won't affect your installation of illustrator (it won't add extra menu items etc). It's easy to uninstall, just drag it to the trash if you don't like it. There's a feedback form for reporting bugs and for giving general feedback. Let me know if you find it useful!
FEATURES:
Artboard Resize: Select an object and click "page size" to change the current artboard to the size of the selection. Add a border by entering a number in the text field. A negative number will make the artboard smaller than the selection.
Select Every: text frame, path item or placed item in the document.
Add Dimensions to Selection: Automatically call out the dimensions of a selection. It adds the width and height in inches, mm, or cm.
Add Dieline Swatch: Adds a "dieline" spot color to the swatches–  spot colors are usually used to call non printing items so that they separate from the process colors.
Current Date: Copy the current date to the clipboard with a click of a button.
Slug Info: creates a text frame that includes basic information about the the document; name of the computer user, date and time that the slug was updated, the file name, the file path, file creation date, file modification date, document width, and document height.
Ink Names: adds all of the ink names used in the artwork to the document. Conveniently colors each ink name in its own color.
Grids: Draw complex grids within a rectangular selection with a click of a button.
Guides: Automatically draws guides around the perimeter of a selection or the artboard. Can also draw guides on the vertical and horizontal centers of the artboard or selection.
Unit Converter: converts between in, cm, mm, points/pixels.
Scale Percentage Calculator: takes the guesswork out of scaling to a specific size. Enter the current dimension and the desired dimension and it will calculate the exact percentage to scale it at.

    I am looking for a text to speech app that supports the Books App?

    If Settings -> General -> Accessibility -> VoiceOver does not work, then it is unlikely iBooks will do text to speach on its own in the current version.
    <http://www.apple.com/feedback>
    I know that some competing services, Kindle, Nook, etc... are restricted in doing text to speach by the book publishers.
    If this is text in a PDF (not an ebook), then maybe there is another app that can to text to speach on PDFs.
    If it is published books that are of interest, there is Audible.com <http://www.audible.com/>
    In theory it should be possible to use the Mac OS X Text to Speach facilities to convert a document into an audio file, and they sync that to the iPod Touch.  I assume there is similar text to speach utilities for Windows systems.
    I'm also guessing that there are web sites dedicated to assisting sight impaired individuals that might provide ideas for getting text to speach options for the iPod Touch.

  • ITunes DJ suggestion (looking for feedback)

    Firstly, I HAVE sent this in as a suggestion already, but I am looking for feedback and suggestions from any of you to improve this.
    I just got into using iTunes DJ, and I think it is great. The only problem I have is the lack of simplicity to request songs. Not dealing with the wireless aspect (iPhones), DJ seems like it could be simplified rather than searching around different sections of iTunes, right clicking, dragging/dropping, whatever. This problem can arise when you are using this application for a party, and just anyone can walk up to request a song. Not everyone will know how it works, so they could easily search around and accidentally double click a song, defeating the purpose of DJ. Instead, why not just have a "view browser" option inside DJ, but with a few tweaks to go along with this specific application. The main change would be viewing "songs" in the browser along with "artist", "album", etc. Another difference, would be that these songs cannot be double clicked in order to solve the double clicking issue. Once the song is selected, there is a "request" button that, once pushed, it goes right into the queue just like any other meathod. This route, there is no leaving DJ. It can always stay right on the same page. Now, while some might not run into these kind of problems, it will still streamline the request feature a lot smoother for everyone. Lastly, Since DJ can have a selected source, such as a specific playlist, the browser should have one as well. This would be nice if you want to allow your guests to select any song, but have the main source of DJ play from a certain playlist. I have taken the liberty to edit a quick version of what I think it could look like. I would appreciate any feedback.
    Oh, and i thought of a random button as well, but didnt know what it should look like or how it would work specifically.

    I can post a higher quality if needed.

    I thought I might give some updated information based on my current findings. It seems like it is actually a proximatey problem. Taking my computer closer to the unit seems to resolve the problem, but it is definately not out of range where I was trying to transmit from. I was still getting almost a full signal. Has anyone else had the same problem with the range not being very good?

  • Looking for a good method or APP to have client sign a form in a text box

    I am looking for a good method or App to take an existing form/Document and have a client sign, date etc.  I will want to create the text boxes in a stationary location.  Possibly to also take a picture to add to form.
    Has anyone used any apps to accomplish this?
    Apps I have tried.
    Signnow
    Sign PDF
    Sign Easy
    Sign Easy is about the best except the signatures (text boxes, dates, etc) are free floating and confuse people where to add them on form each time.  Clients have no clue how to use it.
    Any suggestions would be helpful.  I may be over complicating this also, as there could just be a PDF app that I utilize.
    Thanks,
    Jim

  • Looking for a good note taking app: Are there new features for the Notes app in iOS6?

    Hi,
    I've read that the Notes app with Mountain Lion will be available for OS X as well, and I was wondering if there will be any significant updates to the Notes app coming in iOS 6?
    The Notes app in Mountain Lion supports, as far as I know, text formatting, images and attachments. The Notes app in iOS 5 does not have any of these features, yet still it is claimed that the OS X client will sync with the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. This means that there must be some rather significant updates coming for the Notes app in iOS 6 to match up with the features of its Mac counterpart. Still, no updates to the Notes app are listed in any of the iOS 6 feature lists I've seen so far.
    I'm looking for a good note taking app for OS X and iOS. I don't like how Springpad works, neither did Evernote work out for me, it's just too complex - I like Simplenote a lot though, it's just that its approach is too radical in my opinion. I was thinking that the Mountain Lion Notes app might be a good alternative because it combines simplicity with rich text formatting and attachments. I kind of hate the skeuomorphic user interface though.
    best, Ian

    You are only addressing other iPad users here & no Apple employees. We have no way of knowing, so you'll have to wait until iOS 6 is released.
    Here's some general info.

  • Looking for a good music player app

    Hi.
    I have a problem. i'm looking for a good music player app for my new iphone (which i will buy my next month) in terms of playing music. after having 3 phones in the last 9 months i'm still unhappy.
    Had a Samsung Galaxy Ace. sound was above average but due to underpowered processor + RAM (and Samsung stating they won't update the software anymore) i had to sell it.
    Than had a Sony Ericcson Xperia Neo but felt the sound was "flat" and bland" and left me disappointed and uninspired coming from a well-known phone maker know for its audio & visual expertise.
    Now, i currently have the HTC Desire S. umm although the sound was "Ok" with its usual pre-set equalizers (common among Android phones) and SRS sound enhancement it felt me wanting more and although i have the phone for a week now i would say "so far-so good."
    but i heard the best music phones out there are those with either Beats Audio (which are very brand new) or the ones with Dolby Mobile.
    had an iPod touch (4th-gen) and i was amazed and impressed by the sound quality.
    so, if i can get away with a good music player app that recreates surround sound, has good preset EQ's along with customisable ones and one with Dolby-like support which app would you recommend?
    Thank you.

    Stock lock screen does not normally support 3rd party widgets so you wont find any third party players that allows you access while on lock screen..  As for the player I perfer Meridian Media Player Revolute from https://market.android.com/details?id=org.iii.romulus.meridian&feature=search_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEsIm9yZy5paWkucm9tdWx1cy5tZXJpZGlhbiJd

    Thanks, the problem is I'm getting spam (spoofing) that is from me saying it was sent from my iPhone with my iPhone signature.  Ive reset my password on my mail, but that's pretty sketchy either way.  And it's being sent to my contacts as well.  Trying to eliminate all the possibilities and this is my first iPhone so I'm still a noob.
    Sadly, spoofing doesn't really require much hacking, All a spammer would need to use your email address for spoofing would be your email address. If it's also being sent to your contacts, your email account may well have been hacked. But that would have happened on the server level. Your phone wouldn't have been involved. Unfortunately, once the miscreants have your contact list, changing your password will not get that back. Changing the  password to something strong may help prevent future misuse.
    Best of luck.

    Hello otechcomputing. is this how you want to setup your network?
    If so, Guest Networks cannot be " extended" since it has Website Authentication encryption which the RE1000 does not support. Here are my suggestions:
    1. Main Network WiFi password should be WPA2 Personal (more secured)
    2. Enable Guest Access (password protected)
    3. Reconfigure the RE1000 to connect to the EA6500 (main network) and change the extender's network name and password (still WPA2 Personal). You can name it with "EXT" at the end to designate it as such.

    I have an Intel iMac - brilliant machine, I love it. I have not installed Windows : I just don't have the need to justify doing it, but I'm glad to know I can if I do need, or just want to.
    Having a Mac is almost like being immune to viruses (almost - I'm not careless). Everytime I use a PC there are message about viruses - it must drive them crazy! And to install Windows on my iMac would render it vulnerable.
