DiscRotate is a MenuItem that will control the speed of your optical drives. It is written in Cocoa for Mac OS X Leopard and later. It can help you make optical drive operation much quieter. Upon launching, a drive icon will appear in your menu bar at the top. It will list all installed optical drives and let you choose how much throttling applies to each of them. The green bar shows the current setting, and can be clicked to change the throttling speed. 100% means the minimum drive speed. When using heavily scratched CD/DVDs it is recommended to lower the setting to about 85%. Clicking the CD icon in the list will pause throttling for that particular optical drive.
Unlike other Java to Objective-C solutions, Java-Objective-C Bridge doesn't require any code generation of class stubs. It allows you to use any Objective-C libraries and frameworks from Java without having to write any native code. In addition to being able to use Objective-C objects, it allows you to pass Java objects to the objective-c runtime as delegates, so that you can write an entire Cocoa application in Java. The bridge provides 3 levels of abstraction. At the lowest level, it provides wrappers around the Objective-C runtime functions. At a slightly higher level of abstraction, it provides a procedural API to send messages to the Objective-C runtime. At the highest level of abstraction, it provides a Proxy class that serves as a wrapper around any Objective-C object that allows you to work with it in Java almost the same as if you were in Objective-C.
KeyBoards is a cross-operating system platform that synchronizes short text messages or URLs. It is designed to be used for composing messages on a desktop system with a real, comfortable keyboard, and then sending them to a mobile device for transmission as an SMS. It is ideal for use with non-Latin character sets.
WeShare Mobile is a software component for the iPhone which allows content such as images, links, text excerpts, or comments to be easily published on social media platforms. WeShare Mobile is easily configurable and can be quickly and inexpensively expanded to include any existing service by simply writing a plug-in. Currently, WeShare Mobile for iPhone includes plug-ins for Facebook, Twitter, Delicious, and e-mail, as well as a demo app.
iMan is a man page viewer for Mac OS X. It provides a native Aqua interface as an alternative to the use of the man program via the Terminal. A variety of useful features have been implemented, including multiple viewing windows, viewing of man pages as well as any man-format file on disk, support for apropos and whatis database searches, as well as in-page search with regular expressions, browser-style history (forward and back within any window), user-customizable font styles, and support for links to man pages in several forms (man:groff(1), man://groff/1, and man://1/groff are all supported). The reusable framework core can be embedded in other applications to provide man page handling functionality.
OFXKit is an Objective-C framework for parsing OFX files into a class hierarchy. Since OFXKit is a native Cocoa framework, Mac OS X development technologies can be easily used with OFXKit. Its main features include OFX 1.x and 2.x support, banking, loan, and investment message sets, and creation of OFX request documents for the "Direct-Connect" feature of many banking Web sites.
