Spotlight Search on Steriods! Makes me a lot more productive and is probably among the first few apps I would install on a new Mac.

Things 3.0

Complete revamp of the original, award-winning task manager

Philip AmourFreelance Product Designer · Written
Best GTD app! :)
CommentsShare
It's really great, But they slam you on the price having to buy it for Desktop, Ipad, and Iphone. ( Almost $100) across the same eco-system. Plus no discount for having the 5-year-old version. Makes you wonder why Apple, Google, and MS can't build a good one. Google should just buy in and bang it into G suite.

Times when I have something to SAY and can't type fast enough on two fingers: Mac app for Slack comes in handy!
CommentsShare
Love slack, but if you are on a laptop and running it on battery, just take a look at your activity monitor to see the amount of resources, it's draining. It's built on the same platform as Chrome which also is super hunger. IF you are running low on power, Turn of Slack on Laptop and use Slack on your Phone and switch to Safari

Avery Kornhelp desk tech. comp info sys major · Written
In today's crazy cybersecurity world having a password manager is pretty much non-negotiable. 1Password makes managing and autofilling passwords a ridiculously easy and is one of the best managers of any platform.

Paste for Mac

Hector G SigalaSocial Media Director, Bernie 2016 · Written
Hands down most useful and best looking clipboard manager out there. It's not free, but it will save you so much time especially after months of use and being able to reference old things on your clipboard. Try it out!

This is probably the app I use the most, aside from a web browser, and would hate to have to live without it. Incredibly useful app with great features and UI.

Turn your iPad Pro Into a high performance drawing tablet

I've been working on completing a full stack web dev course and have been using Duet a lot in the past few weeks. It let's me have the versatility of a home multi-display setup while working at a coffee shop.

Jumpshare for Mac

Incredibly fast, real-time file sharing

Justin MitchellDesigning Products at Sofriendly.com · Written
I literally don't know what I'd do without Jumpshare. I send links, code, screenshots, files, gifs, you name it, to everyone on my team. I have a branded URL and unlimited storage. It's such an integral part of my workflow.

Copied

A full featured clipboard manager

I love saving funny cat gifs and other things to a clipboard that I can recall for later. There's an iOS app that pulls in the same clipboard from the cloud. You can also organize your clips into categories.

Paprika

Recipes management on your mobile and in the cloud

I used to use Evernote to clip and save recipes, but I moved everything over to Paprika and haven't looked back. The two features I like the most are the simple web importing and the app can also adjust the measurements to fit a required serving size.

Atlas Recall

A searchable photographic memory for your digital life

Clearly biased here - but I 💩 you not, it has really changed the way I interact with my own stuff. "Where did I last see ____" or "What was that thing called again?" has become a thing of the past. It's made me lightning quick to go between task to task and that speed on my Mac has been pretty magical tbh.
