Apple has always been creative in dealing with the marketing strategies that they come up with to make a stand in the market. the release of the Mac OS X snow leopard is by far considered the best market release. This statement is adhered to by the low price release the end-users had to pay for a single user license as well as the ease of involvement involved with the use of the Mac OS X snow leopard.
The Mac OS X snow leopard didn’t house any new additional feature but was hauled with an improvement in the software framework the existing features worked on. The Snow leopard was introduced into the market for a very low price od 29$ that made the OS be downloaded almost b every end-user of a Mac.
The Mac OS X snow leopard can be considered as the trial experiment held by apple to make an improvement in their software framework and also increase the credibility of the devices offered by Apple to the market. Apple majorly focused on the software part with this OS update merely to experiment with new software algorithms and expand the technological horizon of the operating system.
The changes made to the existing features will give you a brief idea about how Apple planned to revolutionize computing.
Mac App store
The full-scale dedicated store to download all the applications for your Macintosh system. This was released along with the Mac OS X leopard to get the response from the end-user about its practicality and when all positive reviews turned in, apple decided to go with the MacApp store with a tweak to the software frame and also improving the user interface between the user and the system.
Apple was very particular about reducing the amount of memory taken up by the operating system. Since the Mac OS X Snow leopard was an overhaul feature improvement update, Apple planned to keep things subtle and succeeded in keeping the bar less than 7GB compared to its ancestor the Mac OS X leopard. They mainly cut down on the space that was used up for pre-installed drivers for printers.
User Interface tweaks
Apple also made an intelligent watch over the aesthetic details that accompanied with the update. They made sure that they made the user interface as interactive and compelling as possible to give the user a good experience while using the system. they also made sure that the tweak in the traffic light type buttons on the title bar is kept subtle and lighter to give a jump to the aesthetic detailing.
The finder application was also fully revamped from scratch and was written in Cocoa, Apple’s very own objective-oriented programming language. This gave Apple the chance to upgrade their usage as well as get the most out of cocoa as well.
The sleep and boot rate of the Mac OS X snow leopard is considered to be the best and fast in its class.
With the Mac OS X Snow leopard, the 32-bit architecture went into the dark in the history of constructing architecture for apple devices. This ensures that apple devices only worked on 64-bit resolutions. This meant that the previous apple device which could only support 32-bit were starting to rot as scrap. This move from Apple wasn’t welcome by many but as the popularity of the 64-bit architecture spread, apple sufficed through the rough patch.
The Open Computing Language or popularly known as the Open CL is considered as the language that paved the way for improvement in the graphical user interface of the Apple devices. The precision involved in numerical processing made by the open CL ensures that the optimal use of the graphical interface was done. This also ensured that the proper load of work was put on the GPU and enabled to adapt the screen to 3-D games like a pro. The open CL is based on the open standard format that was supported by all the leading graphical processing chips of famous brand names like AMD, Intel, Nvidia, etc.
- Mac Computer with intel processor supporting X84-64-bit architecture.
- 5GB of free hard disk space.
- 1GB minimum RAM.
- DVD drive or external USB drive.

Here are the steps to install Transdroid when you use Transmission on Mac OS X:
Setting up Transmission
Transmission has a native Mac OS X interface now and is becoming more and more popular on this platform. To install this client on your Mac, visit the Transmission website and download the latest Mac OS X build, which is a .dmg file. When it is done downloading, copy it to your Applications to install it.
Next, we will enable the web interface, because this is used by Transdroid to communicate with it. Choose ‘Transmission -> Preferences’ from the menu and go to the ‘Remote’ tab. Enable the remote access. You can leave the listening port to the default 9091 or change it. If you change this, remember it because you will need it later on. It is strongly advised to also enable authentication. Make up some username and password. Remember it because you will need it later. Lastly, make sure that you leave the IP filtering option off..
You should now test if the web UI works. Click on the ‘Launch web interface’ button. This opens up your browser. If it doesn’t, open the browser yourself and go to http://127.0.0.1:9091/transmission/web. It will ask for the username and password that you just entered. If you now see the web interface of Transmission, you may continue.
Allow access from anywhere
The next step is very important if you want to use Transdroid to control Transmission from anywhere you go and not just your home Wi-Fi network. You will need to open up the port 9091 and redirect this to your home computer. First get your Mac’s local IP address. For OS X 10.5 (Leopard) and 10.6 (Snow Leopard), select the Apple menu and choose ‘System Preferences…’ or use Spotlight to find it. Here, choose ‘Networking’ and on the left click the active network adapter (Ethernet for wired and AirPort for wireless connections). The local IP addres is shown in the networking status.
Transmission Mac Os
With Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) and lower, select the Apple menu and choose ‘Location’ and then ‘Network Preferences…’. Next to show, select ‘Network Status’ which will show the active network adapter and its IP address.
Now go to your the manager interface of your router or ADSL modem. It will most likely have a NAT tab or settings screen. Here you will need to set up a port forward from all external traffic on port number 9091 to you local computers’ IP address – the one that you just retrieved from the Network screen – on the same port. There are too many routers and ADSL modems to make detailed explanations here, but you can use the website PortForward for in-depth help.
Setting up Transdroid
The final step is to set up Transdroid. Install the software from the Android Market and open up the application. You will see a message that you need to set up a server configuration first. Hit your Android device’s menu button and choose ‘Settings’. Next, click the ‘Add a sever’ button to create your first sever configuration. You can add more later, if you need to.
Now fill in all the settings. The name is totally up to you. From the type menu you choose for Transmission of course.
The IP address is your server’s external IP address. If you do not know this, open up a browser on your Mac and surf to whatismyip.com. It will present you the external IP address that you need in Transdroid.
The port number is the next setting and is 9091. (Except for when you manually changed it, of course.) You entered this in the Transmission remote access settings tab.
Since you have enabled authentication as well, enable this setting and fill out the username and password that you choose earlier.
Time to test your settings! First disconnect from the Wi-Fi network if you are connected to the local network (the one where your Mac is in as well). This is important, because you will need to use different settings for that.
Now, hit the back button of your Android device twice to return to the main screen. It should now state that it is connecting to the sever. After a couple of seconds you should get a listing of all the active torrents in Transmission. Rewards yourself by downloading some torrents, right from your phone. 🙂

Local Wi-Fi network access
One thing you should know when you have a Wi-Fi network at home, is that you cannot use your external IP address as described above while you are connected this way. When connected to the wireless network that your Mac is in, you will need to use your machine’s internal IP address instead.
Easiest thing to do is to open Transdroid’s settings menu again and add a new sever configuration. Use the exact same details that you used before, but now use your Mac’s local IP address. Of course you also want to give it a name that identifies it as being your local configuration.
Give it a test by going to the main screen and choose ‘servers‘ from the menu. You can select the other configuration from the pop-up menu. A little tip: switching servers can also be done by swiping your finger from left to right (or the other way around). No need to open the menu each time!
If Transdroid refuses to connect you, use these steps to trace the problem.
First try to connect to the web UI directly from your Mac. Start a browser and surf to http://127.0.0.1:9091/transmission/web. If you get a page not found error, you have not enabled the web UI in Transmission or you are using a different port than 9091.
If you are presented a login screen but are refused access, please check your username and password, maybe re-enter them. As long as you cannot even access the web UI, Transdroid will not work as well.
Transmission Mac App
If this direct connection works, check if you can connect using Transdroid while connected on your internal Wi-Fi network. Remember to use you internal IP address now. If this works but external connections via 3G/EDGE don’t, you have not set up the port forwarding correctly.
