EventScripts triggers scripts whenever monitored events occur. AppleScripts, Automator workflows, Perl scripts, shell scripts and applications can all be executed by EventScripts.

EventScripts can also remote control your Mac by triggering scripts using your Apple Remote control. You can even run scripts from your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch using the free companion application EventScripts Mobile.

EventScripts is also scriptable allowing you to use EventScripts to send Prowl and Pushover notifications to your iOS device.

EventScripts passes parameters to all the scripts that it executes that provide additional information about the event that triggered execution.

The events that EventScripts supports include:

Bluetooth device proximity; Apple Remote Button presses;
Location changes; internet connectivity changes; application launches and quits; computer shutdown; file downloads; sleep and wake; screen sleep, wake and locking; screensaver start and stop; time machine backup completion; bluetooth availability; wifi network name changes; iTunes track changes; screenshot generation; volume mounting and ejection and many many more…

Our web site contains many useful example scripts for controlling Plex, VLC, QuickTime, Powerpoint, Transmission as well as templates for writing your own scripts.

Ratings and Reviews



If you're comfortable with AppleScripts, you'll love this. It took me a while to get into it; but, once I did, I found that the sky is the limit. My favorite is when it sleeps my Mac 30 seconds after I leave and turns it on 5 seconds after I get back (iPhone monitoring via Bluetooth). But it does much, much more: secripts when the screen sleeps and when it wakes up are great, for example. It's a great addition to your toolbox!

Does not work as advertized, no support

anon was taken

I tried to set this up to run an applescript when unlocking my computer. It never runs the script. I sent an e-mail to the support address, and no reply.

Apparently, if you buy an app that doesn’t do what is promised, Apple directs you to the developer’s support, and does not offer a refund.
I guess I should write a garbage app, advertize taht it does fantastical things, while in reality it does nothing.

Don’t get scammed by Apple & David Blishen!

Powerful applescript triggering

jason at

I'm a mac automation freak, and Evenscripts helps complete my bag of tricks. Because it's geared solely towards running actions that are written in applescript (instead of pre-defined actions), it's at once more powerful and more advanced than other "Trigger + Action" apps. Other apps are capable of firing off applescripts, but not as flexibly as Eventscripts. Caveat: If you're not comfortable with applescript, you're not ready for this one.

Extras like the iphone app (fire scripts from your phone), bluetooth proximity detection (run script with device leaves area), apple remote support, active development, and responsive customer support make this app a real bargain right now.
