iSyncit

iSyncIt

iSyncIt is a small menu bar application that allows you to sync your devices more easily and quickly than just using iSync alone. iSyncIt has the ability to automatically turn your bluetooth on and off, saving you power if you are using a laptop. It also has a built in scheduler to allow you to set up automatic syncing of your devices.

To reduce the amount of space needed on your menu bar iSyncIt also contains an, albeit limited, bluetooth menu, allowing you to use iSyncIt as a replacement for your bluetooth menu bar item.

This software requires OS X 10.5, PPC or Intel processors and for all of your devices to have been synced at least once in iSync.

In Mac OS it is only possible (as far as I am aware) to control the power of internal bluetooth dongles, those provided by Apple, therefore automatic bluetooth control will not function with external dongles. However, the scheduling and syncing functions of iSyncIt will continue to work as normal.

Set Icon

Set Icon is a small application that lets you quickly and easily set a custom icon for one your drives either from an ICNS file or any old image file that Mac OS supports.

Just select your drive, drag an image file to the image area and click ‘Set Icon’, when you want to remove the custom icon just select the drive, check the ‘Remove Custom Icon’ box and click ‘Remove Icon’.

All images are scaled to fit within the constraints of a 512×512 icon.

Set Icon applies custom icons in such a way that they appear correctly both in (Snow) Leopard’s side bar and in the Boot Camp chooser.

Kill Dashboard

Kill Dashboard is a basic Automator action to shut down Dashboard after use. it allows you to free up RAM and processor cycles without permanently disabling Dashboard. It should work on all Tiger platforms assuming you’ve done no dodgy OS editing of your own. I have created this for people that do not wish to write their own AppleScript or Automator actions.
