      Hi Scott,

      I’d also like to say thanks for the phone charging app. It works great on the newer Motorola M385, the cheapo phone that I have.

      Cheers,
      Zev

          Hello Scott,

          Thank you so very much for the Moto Charger App. You saved me from investing money and time in my five year old phone which I have to use to replace my new but broken one.

          Best wishes from Germany!

    Scott,
    I’m ready to buy ReceiptWallet and DocumentWallet. Can you recommend any multi-functions with Scanners or do you think the stand-alones are best? I will be scanning receipts, monthly bills and tax forms…so I will need one that can last a long time. Also, I have a podcast called the T4 Show on iTunes and would love to have you on if you can afford the time. Thanks.

    Hi Michael,

    I’d recommend against any multi-function device. They’re mediocre at each feature. If you can afford it, I’d recommend a Fujitsu ScanSnap. Over on my ReceiptWallet website, I have a link to it over on Amazon.

    As for your podcast, sure I have time. Just go through my ReceiptWallet contact page and we can work out the details.

    Yes, I developed NotifyMail. However, I discontinued it awhile back. NotifyMail was never a “checked for email”, it was an email notification application. The difference is that NotifyMail did not make a POP or IMAP connection to get email; it listened for a cue from the server.

    Hi Scott;
    I want to purchase RecieptWallet, and can’t find it. I have the demo that has expired. How can I get you $$$, and I get key to unlock?

    Thanks-

    Moto Charger. Any chance you’ll put the source for the old Moto charger up. I have a Moto W233 that won’t charge on my mac and the old version (2006) doesn’t work.

    Cheers,

    Your motocharger app is amazing. I recently upgraded from a RAZR (which charged fine) to a V750 Adventure which did not. It would charge in Windows (in VMware Fusion) but not mac. But with your app my phone charges fine now. Any chance of releasing the source? Thanks again!

    I have no plans on releasing the source code for MotoCharger. What I’d actually recommend is getting a charge only cable for your phone; I got one with a Belkin surge protector with 2 USB ports. With this cable you don’t have to worry about my app working or not working. Also, my app just detects the USB vendor; unless Motorola uses multiple vendors, it should work fine.

    Hey Scott,

    I have been looking for a way to charge my Motorola w385 phone on my Mac for the longest time! (about 10 months since my charger was stolen) I finally put together the correct search terms and your site came up.
    I am happily charging away on my iBook now!
    I just want to let you know the amount of appreciation i have for you for developing this application, it is saving me from buying a wall charger that would be at least 15 bucks.
    Thanks!

    Hi Scott,
    I used your motorola charger application for my krzr phone, and for some reason, the phone will no longer charge when plugged into my car charger or the normal wall charger – it only charges when plugged into the computer. Do you know why this happened, and do you have any suggestions as to how to fix it? I don’t always bring the computer when I travel, so I do want to be able to charge my phone the normal way as well.
    Thanks!

      Malavika-

      Sounds like there is a problem with the charging circuit on your phone. The only thing that the MotoCharger application does is tells the USB port to open the interface. It’s possible you had a defective USB cable which sent extra voltage to your phone. My app definitely didn’t cause this problem. I had something similar happen to my MacBook Pro recently where it would only run off AC power and the battery would no longer charge; somehow the charging circuitry got zapped. Sorry.

    Hey Scott- just read your post about the doggy root canal. I’m also… in San Diego. What pet dentist did you get that quote from? My little guy apparently chipped a canine (I just found this out earlier today)… ๐Ÿ™

    Thanks for the MotoCharger app! I wanted to let you know that I too had trouble launching the app for some reason – 10.5.8 on PPC. However, I opened the application package, and found the unix executable file (no idea what’s in the file, just that I can run it from the terminal app (cli)) and it works beautifully!

    Of course this doesn’t help me with my other little solar chargers etc.- I’ll have to make an actual cable for those… or alter one.

    Thanks for your help!

    Hi, I’d like to add my voice to those who say thank you for creating motocharger. FINALLY. I have never understood why it didn’t work right out of the box, and now it just plain works to charge my phone this way. This is awesome. One less unit to carry around on a trip. Thank you so much!!

    Hi!
    I have a question about the MotoCharger app. I just downloaded the file from your blog, and dragged it into my Applications folder, but I’m having trouble actually downloading the application onto my computer.. The folder appears as MotoCharger2 and inside are only text edit files and a couple more folders.. What application is needed to open the MotoCharger2?

    Thanks!

      The MotoCharger app that you can download is simply an app that is zipped; I just tested it. It hasn’t been touched in 4.5 years, so I have no idea if it still works with recent versions of Mac OS X.

    Yo,

    I just read your post about Charles, and i’m stuck in the same situation; a 3G related bug.

    I’m able to connect my iphone to charles but I’m unable to throttle the speed to 3G, it seems to be ignoring the throttle settings I have put. My actual mac is being throttled, but my iphone is still fast!

    Could you give me a quick run down of how you set it up?

    Thanks in advance,
    Patrick

    Hey Scott,

    I’m a talent scout for the video game industry, but besides trying to get in touch with you, wanted to say I think it’s pretty awesome how many people you’ve managed to help with your MotoCharger App! Most of the blogs for developers that I look at are barren of comments, yet yours has dozens!

    Either way, I’d love to have a quick chat with you/pick your brain, as I have some clients that are doing some pretty amazing work in the mobile game space (based off of what I’ve seen in your blog, I think you might be interested in talking to one in particular that is working in the ‘edutainment’ industry).

    Let me know if this sounds interesting, and look forward to hearing from you.

    Cheers,

    Alex

      I’m glad you like MotoCharger; I haven’t used that app in years, but people still seem to like it.

      At the moment, I’m happily employed and not looking for other work. If you’d like to get in touch with me directly, feel free to send me email.

      Hi Alex,

      Thanks for making making your UIBubbleTableView available for all to use! I’m not sure how to message within GitHub unless a pull request has been initiated. Thanks for pulling in my changes; I was going to do a pull request, but it looks like you beat me to it!

    Thanks! My W385 work phone is now charging via USB in Mac OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion). Now if I could only convince my company to give me a new phone.

    So given your recent review this may not be a fair question but it does prompt my curiosity…I was just considering a Cisco RV130-WB-K9-NA router when I saw it. What is your opinion on the two or are they simply in different classes? The Cisco is almost over done for home but I like the feature set to explore the technologies. Thoughts?

      Hi Bill,

      I’ve haven’t touched Cisco equipment in a long time. I like how all the UniFi equipment has one view and right now my recommendation is for UniFi equipment. The Cisco box may have more features that you want, but I’m sold on Ubiquiti.
