EventScripts is an application for triggering scripts and notifications, whenever certain events occur. AppleScripts, Automator workflows, Perl scripts, shell scripts and even applications can all be executed by EventScripts.

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

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

Location changes; internet connectivity changes; application launches and quits; computer shutdown; Safari file downloads; sleep and wake; screen sleep, wake and locking; screensaver start and stop; time machine backup completion; desktop picture changes; spaces changes; iTunes track changes; screenshot generation; volume mounting and ejection and more...
