Electronic gadgets are one of the wonderful things that technology has brought unto us. We can see that almost everywhere these highly advanced devices are being used by people from different walks of life. Truly, these things are helpful in creating fun, entertainment, functionality, portability, convenience and practicality.
But we can’t deny that these things also have negative effects in our environment. Not only that it’s one of the contributor for damage in the environment, it is also causes us to consume a lot of energy. Good thing, some brilliant people have chosen to develop some solutions for the problem.
Let me introduce to you the iShutdown app!
Apparently, this application is a power saving app as it can save the use of energy by automatically shutting down devices that are not in use. Vlad Polyanskiy the creator of iShutdown app and the administrator of iShutdown forum site is great in developing a unique solution specifically for Mac and PC.
As posted at the ishutdown site, your problems with turning off and starting on again with your Mac device is no longer a problem now. With just a tap, you can easily shutdown and restart your device. It also supports those devices in 3G or Wi-fi. With its automatic scanning ability, it will look for hosts of local networks that are available for you.
You can get this app in either of the two options, one is via iTunes App Store and the other is by installing ishutdown’s server software. For downloading via iTunes, it cost you for only $0.99 under the Utilities category.
On one hand, if you choose to get this app by download and install its server software, it requires OS X Snow Leopard version 10.6.5 or newer for OS X while Windows XP, Vista or 7 for Windows. Moreover, it also requires .NET Framework and Bonjour to be installed, but if you already got iTunes, you no longer need to install Bonjour.
