    Alfred Remote

    Supercharged remote control for your Mac (iOS)

    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.

    Best GTD app! :)

    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

    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.

  9. 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.

    I really prefer Paste to Pastebot because it's easier to access my categories and preview the text. I like how it shows you the color when you copy a hex color code too! And I don't need to remember a ton of shortcuts, just one.

    As a non-graphics designer type, the Adobe tools are much too advanced and intimidating, not to mention pricey. This app is a lifesaver and really easy to use. I've learned more about image editing by usine Pixelmator than any other design tool.

    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.

    I used to like Paprika so much. But they haven't updated their Android app in years and it's so dated now, the images in the recipes are too tiny to see anything and there is no way to export to anything other that Paprika's proprietary extension.

    Paprika is gorgeous on Mac and iOS. One great feature is that times in the instructions of recipes are clickable, and will give you a running timer when you click. You can run multiple timers.
