- I use this 100+ times a day. I use it for basic math as a calculator, i use it to launch almost 100% of my apps (or even to bring them to the forefront when they are hidden), I use them to launch web searches, and more. I don't even think about it. Mapped to Opt+Spacebar, i can do so much with my computer without taking my hands off the keyboard. Alot of it is muscle memory now, so i can launch things in fractions of a second. Opt+Space+D+I will launch discord. Opt+Space+C+H will launch chrome Opt+Space+P+H will launch Photoshop Opt+Space+A will launch Atom (text editor) It gets even more powerful when you upgrade and get workflows which i have just started to do. This allows you to launch "scenes" like in home automation, but for your computer. You can also launch sequences or deeper intergrations within many apps, which is amazing. This speeds up my work by 100X, i don't exaggerate.
- really great for keeping your windows organized. Especially great when working with different sized monitors.
- Easily and simple window managerI went through a number of different window managers before finally discovering and settling on Magnet. It is the best of the bunch.
- Keep passwords, credit cards, IDs... safeThere is simply no better password and personal information management tool for Mac and iOS.This is a must have tool on any computer. But it really is at its best inside of Mac OSX. I use this for all my devices, on all my passwords, and store all my credit cards, and everything. I couldn't live without it. It is by far the best of all the password managers.
- For $10/mo you get a collection of some of the best Mac apps money can buy, including apps named above like Bartender, Numi, and iStat Menus, as well as CleanMyMacX, Expressions, Flume, Paw, Sip, Be Focused, and many, many more that I depend on every day.I was going to recommend this too. For $10/mo you have access to many of the best applications for mac.
- Great tool to hide all the unnecessary stuff in the menu bar. Will come in handy the more apps you have installed.Absolutely essential if you're the kind of person who uses a lot of background applications.As you start to download more apps, your top bar will get cluttered beyond belief. Bartender allows you to hide all but the most necessary tools on your toolbar, but still access the other ones with one click. This should be a core-Mac OS feature in my opinion. But bartender is awesome
- I beleive that the first app/s to install should do sometihng with productivity, and I recommend NoteLedge (a notes app by Kdan Mobile) - I use it with my MacBook Air. Personally for me, this app has proven to be a solid solution to taking notes, creating/managing to-do lists, persoanl knowledge collection as well as keeping bookmarks, references and PDFs organized and easily accessed on all my devices (my iPhone and my iPad). NoteLedge has quite a few features that make it useful both in a work environment and at home. It's easy to learn how to use and it works well on all Apple devices - so you're able to do work on the go.
- This is 100% the best tool. It adds the four-square screen docking and supercharges your touchpad and touchbar. Imagine being able to navigate between apps and tabs (alt+tab) with a swipe of the fingers - that's what this does. Imagine adding your own apps and shortcuts to the touch bar... it does that too. I recommend this to everyone.
- Type any characters and have them act as shortcuts to become other characters, words, phrases or entire sentences e.g. setup just two characters to expand into one's full e-mail address.
