Mac Airplane Mode takes the idea of having your cell phone's wireless services turned off on an aircraft to the next step. Your computer, increasingly popular gadgets to bring on aircraft for traveling, have the same amount of wireless technology, if not more, with WiFi and Bluetooth, that can mess with the aircraft's systems. Mac Airplane Mode takes a one step approach to turning these services off and on in an instant to comply with US Federal Aviation Laws.

Installed the app and tried to run it. Got a window that says "Applescript error" and a list beginning with:

networksetup - listnetworkserviceorder

The method of installing has been simplified and is now drag and drop. Be sure to use the correct binary for the version of OS X you have or it won't function.

I see that in an earlier comment (2007) you mention using zerolink (dropping it actually) in your code, which I believe is Xcode-only. Are you no longer using Xcode?

Xcode makes it easy to create a single app bundle with binaries for both architectures, which is the usual solution to the problem of supporting 2 architectures. This is generally the "least surprise" solution for Mac users.

I'll install this when it doesn't use an Installer. The File menu of Installer shows that this install shows only files in the app bundle as I expected. This is good.

So why an installer?

This is bad. Not needed.

I quit the installer without installing.

I dislike simple apps delivered by installer.

I chose to use the Installer because I have 2 seperate binaries. One for Leopard, one for Tiger, and the Installer chooses between them intelligently. Worse comes to worse, you could contact me for a Zip of the app.

Thanks
