    Ok, so I know a ton of people on here really like to have some small tasks fufilled by these microscopic apps, such as respring and other various commands. However, the developers really just don't want to waste their time doing these apps for these people as its kind of a waste of time.

    So, tonight i will be releasing a /very/ beta version of what will be a universal application. it will read the info.plist and perform tasks dependant on what lies within the keys. for example, if i wanted to remove "TapDial" and then respring with this application, i would put this in the info.plist

    Code:
    <key>Execute</key>
    <array>
            <string>rm -rf /Applications/TapDial.app</string>
            <string>killall SpringBoard</string>
    </array>
    this would execute any commands in the array inside this key.

    or to play a video

    Code:
    <key>VideoPlayback</key>
    <string>testvideo.mp4</string>
    <key>VideoLiesWithinBundle</key>
    <true />
    this would play testvideo.mp4 from within the application bundle. you could also set within bundle to false, and set the path to anything anywhere like /var/testvideo.mp4

    This way, non-developing members can distribute useful tools that do things like this without needed code knowledge or any of that junk. Actual interface objects will soon be supported too!

    What i need from you guys is:
    1. Your opinion on the idea of this
    2. Suggestions for other things for it to do(non graphical yet)

    Thanks,
    -John

    Can you have some default ones when the app comes out?
    (if I am understanding this right?)
    And if so...
    Include a MAC address submitter (to enter the MAC address and then save it) and then change the Mac address to the submitted address without reentering it everytime.
