  1. Actually, LE isn't even necessary. I found this article on Logic Remote which acts as a sort of companion iPad app for Logic Pro, and was able to use the steps in it to control Alfred on my Mac from my iPad with WiFi off: http://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202765 This apparently sets up a Bluetooth personal area network where both devices get self-assigned IPs in the same subnet and mDNS works as usual for service discovery. I'm using Yosemite and iOS 8 so I don't know how far back this works but as of the current OS releases it seems to work 'out of the box' already.

    Alfred Remote & Photoshop

    EDIT: A more thorough write-up can be found here... While attempting to find ways to implement Alfred Remote into my workflow, I learned that Photoshop supports Applescript (can't believe it took me this long to find out). Combining Alfred Remote & Photoshop is cool. Among other things, you can launch Photoshop Actions. As an example, I use Photoshop actions to highlight portions of a document and then create a tear effect that I use in Keynote presentations. Before, I had to remember the keyboard shortcuts I assigned to the various actions and run them at various times. This worked okay. Now, with Alfred Remote, it is a much easier process. I can make a selection (or selections) using the marquee tool in Photoshop and with the press of a button in Alfred Remote, the selection is highlighted. I then begin the tear effect action. I can then apply a brush to the top, left, right and bottom each with a separate button. I have buttons for decreasing and increasing brush size (although I still primarily use the bracket keys) and a final action that saves the image to my desktop and closes it in Photoshop. Example Applescript for running an action in Photoshop... on alfred_script() tell application "Adobe Photoshop CC 2014" do action "cool action" from "Main Action" end tell end alfred_script Example Applescript for pressing a key on the keyboard (left bracket key)... on alfred_script() tell application "Adobe Photoshop CC 2014" tell application "System Events" to key code 30 end tell end alfred_script Now, using my left hand, I run the various actions from Alfred Remote on my iPhone/iPad while applying the brushes with my right hand using my mouse/trackpad. I've used this setup to the point that I can do it all without looking at my iPhone/iPad to press buttons. Video demonstration (I performed the actions slower in the video so the button presses in Alfred Remote can be seen)...

  3. Here is a link of the application. Please, make some tests before using it for good and, as always, make backups first! Playlist to Folder

  4. Not yet. I'm stuck between rewriting Packal, writing Alphred (new PHP library), and writing a dissertation. The latter needs to take priority. But the other two seem to grab my time. Still, because of the diss, I can't make any time promises.
