Location Helper for AppleScript

By David Blishen

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


Location Helper brings the power of Core Location to AppleScript. Location Helper has no interface, and runs in the background waiting for AppleScripts to ask it to do something.

You can use it to find your current location, altitude, geocode addresses, even reverse geocode your current location from your AppleScript scripts and applications.

Location Helper also contains all the functionality of our popular app JSON Helper, which allows you to parse JSON into AppleScript records, and convert AppleScript lists, records and strings into JSON.

So versatile and easy

AppleScript should've offered this natively, but this service provides a really complete and versatile dictionary. It could use a little more documentation in each verb, parameters, etc, but it didn't take long to try a few things to see what form you need to provide for direct objects and such.

Please Update

It worked awesome before I upgraded to OS X Yosemite. Please update!


Perfect. Does exactly what I need it to. 'Nuff said.
