    This is a meta-recommendation, but when you end up with too many menubar apps, you can stash them in Bartender

      Honestly, if I was to buy a new computer, this is the first thing I would download.

      Although Apple and Google have integrated blue light filters into their operating systems, they still haven't matched the capabilities that f.lux offers. f.lux gives you more control over the filter strength and once setup, you don't need to touch.

      I have been using this since it first showed up on Product Hunt. It's probably my most used 'app' even though I barely ever interact with it. Once I found my optimal settings, I don't think I've opened the app itself more than a handful of times. It works as advertised most of the time. The only time I've had issues is when using it on external displays with Linux. Since it's my secondary device, it's not been much of a problem though.

      I love this product - the *only* thing I liked about Windows was the ability to snap my windows in to place on my desktop. Magnet adds the one feature I wanted for my Mac from Windows and super-sizes it - especially with multiple monitor support.

    Caffeine

    Keep your Mac from going to sleep

    This one is brilliant. Prevents you from digging around in the system preferences when you want to change how long until the screen goes black. Clicking it in the menu will prevent your mac from locking or going to sleep 🀘🏼

    I used to swear by Caffeine, but I like that Amphetamine is built on a modern codebase and has a ton of features (few that I use though).

    If you like Bartender 2 to keep your menu bar clean, I'd recommend HiddenMe to hide icons on your desktop.

    This CPU Monitor shows you how much you're crushing your CPU via the DOOM face. More injured = bigger CPU load. Totally pointless, therefore absolutely essential.

    • Always love a good gif recorder!! Once you have one you find more and more practical uses for it.

      For those of you on PC, www.screentogif.com is really great. It's portable and lets you annotate as well.
