What is AirPort Location for Mac

Airport Location ... Wouldn't it be great to have 10-15 computers? One setup perfectly for home leisure use, one setup perfectly for work, one setup perfectly for coffee shops…

The problem is, most of us only have 1-2 computers. This is where Airport Location comes in: it makes your computer feel like dozens of computers all in one convenient package.

Airport Location is a small menubar app for Snow Leopard laptops and desktops. When you ask it to it records dozens of settings by taking a Snapshot of your computer just the way it is setup at that time. You can have as many Snapshots as you want - one for Travel, one for Office, one for Home, one for watching Movies etc.

What's new in AirPort Location

Version 0.60230:
  • Fixed a large error with maps/address; now additional network traffic should stop for all machines
  • Re-added keyboard backlight to the snapshot list...
  • Added time been at a particular location
  • Fixed a bug that didn't allow for time machine backups on hardware sets
  • Cleaned up some verbose logs
  • Various other bugfixes...

I've been using it for a long time under 10.6. With Lion you have to start it as a 32 bit application. This did the trick for me, using OS X 10.7.4.

Would there be anyway to compile this for PPC/10.5 systems? It looks perfect for what I want to do, but I'm still unfortunately stuck in the non-Intel dark ages. Thanks!

Since the last 3 version, AL shows "Undeterminable". Why is that?

This is a great little piece of software. I use it on my MacBook when i'm on the road, in WIFIs of my clients and at hotels. The only thing i miss is a way to switch settings of third party applications, especially firewall/security software. Just to switch the corresponding plist files and a relaunch of the applications would be enough. Maybe this could be a simple way to integrate almost any application?

Simply fantastic. Small, unobstrusive, and does a great job. Let's me automatically turn off all sharing when I'm on public wireless networks, and turn them back on when I get home. Among many things. It did take me a while to figure out how to make use of its full potential, though.

@Everyone - there is an error in the automatic updates on version 157, updating to 158 will have to be done manually. Apologies for the inconvenience. -Andrew

I like this application, but this version doesn't work well for me. It seems to take much more time than previous version to load a snapshot and I often got a spinning ball. Any attempt to change the settings of a location will result in having the spinnig ball OD for at least 1-2 minutes.

Quite a convenient app for switching between my home and office setup. I don't make use of more than a few of the huge number of snapshot customization settings, but there's likely something there for everyone. The developer keeps making this app better every week or so. Great job on fixing the bug that was turning on discrete graphics cards! (To the developer: If you think this bugfix is somewhat general and not just something specific to AirPort Location, maybe you should share your solution so that the numerous other developers whose apps switch on the discrete graphics card for the smallest Core Animation call can fix this too. :)

Alas ... the SBOD. Was very interested in managing my airport locations and did a quick download, but all I get is the spinning ball of death each time I I click on the menubar icon ...

This used to be awesome, however, in the last couple of updates it has completely stopped working. Now each time I change location I have to manually change the location and the snapshot each time. Now I just need to figure out which version last worked successfully and go back to it.

My previous post should be ignored. In my haste I failed to notice that Airport Location had been updated before responding to the blog item that appeared in my email inbox. I need to test the new version before answering. Apologies. Thanks.

Unfortunately, no. AirPort Location still displays the message about turning on AirPort power, and does nothing further. I'm still setting my locations manually. I've tried uninstalling the latest using your instructions and reinstalling, but I still can't seem to make it work.

Airport Location can not find applications within subfolders of /Applications, which it uses in the Location snapshot. Annoying to tell it where to look at each login when the app is updating the snapshot. Is it necessary to update the snapshot every login. Could there be an option to turn this off? On the whole a great program! Beats manually making rule sets in Marco Polo and then it still doesn't always get it right.

Thanks for Airport Location! I think it may be where I need for it to be or nearly there. I've been searching for an application such as this that could turn Airport on and switch to a location setting that reflects the new status simply when and always when I unplug the ethernet cable. I need it to change back when and always when I plug the cable back in. Sometimes the results are intermittent, but if I choose the first menu item again a time or two, the new status appears to be recognized and the proper actions performed.
