Since I have been spending the last few weeks getting some Netweaver instances running on my new Hyper V server I have spent a considerable amount of time on the SAP Notes website debugging and troubleshooting everything from installation to master guides. Since my SAP Note Viewer apps for iPhone and iPad are fairly popular and I was tired of having to login so many times, I figured I would develop a “clone” for the Mac.
The free app features a pretty basic status bar menu and when you open it for the first time, requests your s-id and password and your search language (German and English). Once opened, you can enter a Note number or search term, submitting will automatically bring up the note in your browser. If you enter a search term, the app will search and return a list of results which you can select, opening the note. The search is fairly slow, as it is, in essence, making two round trips (one for the page and the second for the results). I have also submitted the app to Mac App Store and it is currently in review, but if you would like to get your hands on it and give me your thoughts, it would be greatly appreciated.
Here is a link to a download page: http://www.li-labs.com/SNVMac.zip (450Kb), just unzip and drag into your “Applications” folder.
