FastScripts vs. the Mac App Store

Daniel Jalkut:

This script is terrible to start with, but starting in OS X Lion, it simply doesn’t work. It fails with cryptic errors, and FastScripts faithfully reports them. Apple is rejecting FastScripts for the behavior of a faulty script that is bundled with OS X Lion.

FastScripts is one of my favorite utilities. Hopefully, the App Store version’s functionality will not be significantly curtailed by Apple’s upcoming application sandbox requirements. Starting in November, applications will only be able to send Apple events if they apply for a temporary exception on a per-target-application basis. FastScripts’ job, of course, is to send Apple events to any application I might have installed.
