Did not work for me

Despite being able to see the scripts available to run, none actually ever executed. Also, I could not find where there was any security to the access, so it seemed anyone would be able to access the scripts on your computer.

Sometimes Otto

Sometimes Otto's Antenna STOPS WORKING because of Mavericks. Blame Apple, or don't blame Apple. Here's why:

1/ Stuff comes "unstuck" in PrefPanes > Security & Privacy > Accessibility. If Otto's Antenna becomes 'disabled' it just will not work. No GUI Scripting access no workee!

2/ Sometimes you have to REINSTALL Otto's Antenna, especially if you do a system migration. That's not Otto's fault, there are other Apps that "do not like to be migrated"... if you have Hazel, have it set to deinstall prefs and move Otto to the Trash. Then re-install from the MAS. Once I did this AND restarted, my scripts now work again.

Also: It may be that Otto (like other Apps) doesn't like it when you turn VileFault.. uh, FileVault on/off. Try #2 again. And restart. Then things should work again. Otto gets 5/5 from me BECAUSE IT WORKS. I hope it works for you too!

Can’t open it on 10.9.1

I can’t open this app so I don’t know how this app is.
