4. What does Snapp! currently do? close app
5. What should Snapp! do instead? open app

please make an author certified for the app
ps I run on a mac!

Oh dear. Your problem is that you let Apple talk you into "up"grading to 10.15 Catalina. Your life is now over. Sorry. Game over.

I guess I can never buy a new Mac again. :~(

But it's great that you get "Move to Bin" instead of "Move to Trash"! It took me a while to figure out what it meant, because "bin" for binary is the name of the directory where the Mac OS (which is NetBSD under the hood) keeps executable application files (as opposed to the applications users are supposed to use, which are in Applications).

Oh, actually, open a Terminal window and say

cd /Applications/3D\ cube/Contents/MacOS
./3D\ cube


and see what that does!

Ok

It did nothing

@bh I'll boot up my windows 7 and try that

It won't connect to the inernet!!!!

Hmm. Is "3D cube" the name of application you made? The capitalization has to be right.

Umm, it looks just right

Okay, try this:

cd /Applications
cd 3D\ cube
cd Contents
cd MacOS

and tell me which of those fails.

If it doesn't like 3D\ cube, try

cd 'CD cube'

Ok, Thanks :]

I don't have a Mac but the issue can't the issue possibly be that you need to mention the file extension (which is .app for Mac)?

Mac

I do not think you got me right.

I meant that just like capitalization, you may also need to mention the file extension, .app in this process-

But as I have said before I do not have a Mac to test if it works.

I have tested the things in the Terminal and some lag my pc and other do nothing

I see.

Oh! Yes, absolutely right. I never remember that because I use the tab key to autocomplete names so I get the ".app" for free.

So,

cd /Applications/3D\ cube.app/Contents.MacOS
./3D\ cube


Umm I deleted the application
