What’s Coming Up Next? – MacHouse Introducing ListUps for Mac OS X

Mac software ListUps

TOKYO (MacHouse) – You never know when you get a new software development idea. When I was developing WorldTimez, the last Mac software release, I had to insert a bunch of city names into the same line of code. And I said to myself “Is there a simpler way of doing it?” Well, I wish I had had ListUps three or four days. YEAH! Anyway, that’s our new software release. ListUps is a new Mac software title we submitted to Mac App Store a few hour ago.

ListUps is a simple desktop application that lets you create a line-by-line list from text files or folders. If the source is a text file, ListUps creates a list by reading each line as a name. You can also create a list by selecting a folder. In this case, ListUps extracts file names (with or without file extensions) from the selected folder. ListUps won’t let you stop there. It comes with a feature by which you specify an expression like a line of programming code and ListUps will encapusulate each name with it. So what are you going to do with this name list? You can save it as a text file.

  1. I find the Listup does more or less exactly what I want. What I was looking for was an app to print a listing of the files in a folder. (My Apple II+ could do that!) Your app generates a text file that lists the files, but when I open the file in textedit, textedit has lost the toolbar so I can’t number a list. I have to copy the list to a new document and then do the numbering.

  2. Thank you for your comment, Mr. Shuckhart. If you have any requests, please let me know.

    Every software developer needs a good, simple text editor. And I used to use TextEdit a lot. But I stopped using it soon after they introduced OS X Lion. They’ve rendered TextEdit into a terribly useless piece of software. Apple, Inc. make very beautiful applications. But their looks are deceiving. As they improve their applications, they will become more difficult to use. I’ve created this application so that I can write code more efficiently. So I’m just sharing what I occasionally use with others.
