The folks over at MakeUseOf.com are offering another free e-book in PDF format, this time for Mac users. You can download The Awesome Automation Guide for Macs or read it online vie Scribd. According to author Bakari Chavanu "…I wrote this MUO Mac Automation Guide for new and existing Mac users who haven‟t taken advantage of the smart automation features of OS X Snow Leopard"
The e-book covers a number of tasks, including using the Automator application which according to the e-book is "…a program, included in Mac OS X, designed for general Mac users to create automation actions and applications without any prior knowledge or use of computer programming or code."
The book focuses on automating files, folders and tasks in four specific areas of Mac OS X
- Smart Folders in the Finder
- Smart Playlists in iTunes
- Smart Albums in iPhoto
- Smart Mailboxes in Mail
This is another great reference for both current Mac users as well as those who are new to OS X. MakeUseOf.com has also offered the Unofficial Guide to Dropbox which I previously posted on at
