Hey guys.

I have some automator apps that I have been using for a while and have decided to share them with you all.
Some of them are my own automator scripts, others are a mix of my work and the communities that I have found scattered online. Unfortunately I don't remember whose is what, so if you contributed to one of these, let me know so I can credit you.

Install APK Application:
Download here

This tool does what it says, installs an APK to a connected android device (with ADB debugging enabled). You simply drag an APK file over the Application icon and it will install the APK to your device.

Note: You will need to open the app up via automator and set the path to your Android SDK for this to work. By default it assumes the following path to the Android SDK folder: ~/AndroidSDK. This is a one time process. You won't have to do it every time.

Android Monitor Application:
Download here

Don't you just hate it how you can't drag the Android monitor terminal app into your dock? Well this enables you to do so. What it does is opens up the Android monitor (formerly DDMS) for you, basically allowing you to have a relevant icon in your dock, for quick access to this much used tool.

App To IPA Application:
Download here

This application does exactly what it says on the tin. Generates an .ipa file for you that you can submit to iTunes or Testflight for example. To use it, simply drag your .app file onto the App To IPA application icon and it will generate a shiny new .ipa for you on your desktop.



App To Testflight Application:
Download here

This application takes your .app file, generates an .ipa file for it and starts the mac version of the Testflight app. To use it, simply drag your .app file onto the App To Testflight application icon and it will generate an .ipa file, start the Testflight app, and then you just need to proceed to clicking "next" in the Testflight app and the upload process shall begin.

This is just a convenience application, basically it does the steps of the App To IPA application, and then does the needed work to get your .ipa into the Testflight App.

ICNS Icons:

You can get the aforementioned ICNS icons here

General Notes:

1) If you modify these applications via the Automator app, and save them, automator *may* overwrite the preset app icon with an automator icon. To rectify this, after you have made and saved your changes, drag the relevant *.icns file (from the download above) into the apps "info" window (right click app, get info, drag icon into icon at the top left of the window). And it will change to the *.icns icon you dragged in.

2) It's recommended to install these apps to your Applications folder, as you would any other Mac app.

Enjoy :)

PS: If you can think of any other helpful automation tools, feel free to post them here, for either I or others to make.

Thanks for these!

 

I'm not familiar with Android Monitor, how are you using that?

Np :)

Android Monitor at it's most basic is a GUI console for device output, but you can also set tags to limit the output shown to your package name, take a screenshot, and so much more. All from within the tool.

Android Monitor is a modern version of ddms.

This is awsome. Is your web down? I can't download files to test them.
