Just got a new developer job, working on a Mac, mainly used Windows before. What apps would you recommend to ease transitioning? What apps do you feel are "mandatory"?
- Alfred is one of the first apps I install on a fresh Mac. I primarily use it for launching apps, but there's also clipboard history, workflow automation, system controls, and a lot more.I can't count how many times I use Alfred everyday. It's become indispensable to me.
- Dash is super useful for quickly looking up docs for almost any language/API. I sync my most used languages/tools so I have access to the docs even when offline. It's often faster to search Dash than it is to google.
- CloudApp is available for Windows too. But I think their Mac version is really well done. Very useful if you work on a remote team. Can grab a screenshot / annotate it / share in Slack. Makes communicating easier. Also works great in pull requests. Can make a gif of a change with CloudApp then include it in your PR to show what changed.
