EventScripts triggers your scripts whenever monitored events occur. AppleScripts, Automator workflows, Perl scripts, shell scripts and applications can all be executed by EventScripts.

EventScripts can also remote control your Mac by triggering scripts using your Apple Remote control.

You can even run scripts from your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch using the companion application EventScripts Mobile.

EventScripts is also scriptable allowing you to use EventScripts to send Prowl and Pushover notifications to your iOS device.

EventScripts passes parameters to all the scripts that it executes that provide additional information about the event that triggered execution.

The events that EventScripts supports include:

Bluetooth device and iBeacon proximity; Apple Remote button presses; location changes; internet connectivity changes; application launches and quits; computer shutdown; file downloads; sleep and wake events; screen sleep, wake and locking; screensaver start and stop; time machine backup completion; bluetooth availability; wifi network name changes; iTunes track changes; Airplay availability; screenshot generation; volume mounting and ejection and many many more…

Our web site contains many useful example scripts for controlling Plex, Transmission and other popular applications as well as templates for writing your own AppleScript scripts.

Absolutely amazing!

Just the sheer amount of options which you have with this app is reason to buy it! And for such a cheap price it's a no-brainer!

Not to mention all the useful workflows you can make with this app and a little bit of AppleScript/Bash understanding.

You can literally do anything with this! 10/10

Great app, great support

I love this little app and use it monitor who's using which Mac at any particular time.

On a total whim I recently emailed the dev asking about the possibility of a trigger on Fast User Switching. Later that day (!) he emailed me a beta containing the feature. And now a week later it's here in the App Store! Really amazing, and great support.

Does exactly what it says

Super useful application.

I have been trying to solve the issue of using f.lux and Lightroom together — you end up forgetting your monitor colours are off and editing a ton of photos only to have to go back over them all and re-edit them after you realise all their colours then off.

Looking forward to see what else it can do — especially getting Bluetooth devices to automatically connect etc
