    yes i know last time i made a thread with this title it was just a plain lie. but recently a mate told me about some real hidden apps.

    well there is a few of them. (before reading any further please install the developer kit, if you haven't already)

    go to the folder "Developer/Examples/DiscRecording/ObjectiveC"

    then go to any of the folders, open the ".xcode" file and compile it (aka "build")

    by the way these APIs are opensoruce, i can seen them being implemented into some apps soon ;)

    Those are neat! I wonder if Apple's going to incorporate any of this functionality into Mac OS X in the future.

    If you go to Developer->Examples->Dashboard->Sample Widgets there are a bunch of Dashboard widgets there. Some of them are pretty useless except as examples of what you can do and how to do it, but others are semi-useful. Framing Gallery is a good one, as is Voices. Which.wdgt might be useful to some people as well (although I couldn't really get it to work right).

    Also if you go into Developer->Applications, there are some interesting programs. Core Image Fun House (in the Graphics Tools folder) is pretty cool, and potentially useful as well.

    Another app that's pretty fun to play around with is the AU-Lab in the Audio folder. You can string effects together and listen to what they do in real time. Just use the built-in microphone (if you have a PowerBook or iBook) as the input source, and plug in headphones to listen to the output. You can do all kinds of stuff with the built in Audio Units.

    Anybody found any other fun hidden things in Tiger?

    the source codes are just sitting their waiting to be used. i think you can compile the apps have save them in your app folder and use them.

    hopefully someone will put those sourcecodes together to make a free version of toast

    there is loads of stuff in the example folder, most of the example widgets are useless, but the codes are good for widget developers, i almost managed to make a widget by looking at those example codes, sadly i gave up, it wasent really my thing :rolleyes:

    I'd like to see the Framing Gallery extended so that it could pick up an image from an iPhoto album and display in randomly when you activated Dashboard.

    I wouldn't call these apps "hidden", but they are a lot of fun to mess with if you have the dev tools installed. You can even build and use the old Mac classic SimpleText (in the Carbon folder). The OpenGL examples are also interesting; I like to change random numbers in the code, recompile, and see what happens. :D

    well I do plan on putting in an effort, no promises though, it's a busy time, I just started a new job.

    but seeing as how I'm going to make a run at it (took a look through the code last night), and feature requests?

    I like the name "singe" quite a bit. If I didn't encounter any localization issues (if I make an application, I plan to provide it in additional languages besides English), that's what I'd name my CD burning app if it wasn't already taken.

    I'd love to see something like this. I'd even donate a little money if you're able to come up with something good. The one feature I'd most like to see is the ability to burn video DVDs from Video_TS folders (DVD-ROM UDF format I think it's called).

    As for the name, I like the suggestion of Barbecue or Grill.

    Words to do with "burning"...

    Burn terms:

    Pyrolysis (To be slowly chemically reduced -carmelized/cooked- by heat)

    Partial/Full thickness (burns)

    (Burn) Unit

    Incinerate (to consume by fire)

    Conflagration (a fire that defys all control)


    Devices that burn:

    Open Flame (Device)

    Torch

    Brazier

    Molotov (cocktail)

    Incindiary (device)

    Burn Actions:

    Arson ( Malicious burning)

    Free Burning (See: Cigarette papers)


    FreeBurn seems like the kind of name you're looking for. You could use a good image of either a torch style lighter or an (ahem) hand rolled cigarette for the icon.

    maybe we should go with something that indicates discs or circles, like 'Pi in the Sky' or 'Radially Charred' maybe? :p
