- With the powerpack, even with the enhancements done on Spotlight, Alfred remains unbeatable. The possibilities are numerous! https://github.com/derimagia/awe...There are tons of great workflows already made, but if you know how to program, even a little, there is a ton of cool stuff you can do with this tool.This is the tool I use to find my stuff, go directly to something, to move something somewhere... all from the keyboard... I use it more than any other app on my Mac! (I saw someone below posted a "paste" app to recall what you've cut to re-paste it... Alfred has the ability to save snippets of code or text you use all the time, as well as pull from the list of the recent items you've cut so you can re-paste them!)
Workflow is a killer feature. Also, you can configure Alfred to be called by double tapping one of the modifier keys. This is super convenient.
I cannot imagine how to use Mac without it. Finding apps by name is more convenient for me that do it with standard ways that iOS provides
- I work on dual screen, I use this all the time for window management.Massive increase in efficiency and happiness by using this app.
This is one of the first apps I install on Mac. Using keyboard shortcuts to manage the size of windows is amazing, the kind of thing macOS should have natively.
I have this app launched almost all the time and reaching out for it for any ad-hoc calculation needs. I love how forgiving the input is allowing me to mix text and numbers and still get the right result. One of my essential tools.
Love every bit. From simple design to the capabilities that it has. I generally travel around and inbuilt currency converter comes in very handy. The latest build is awesome where it lets me save and retrieve the files on need basis.
- I absolutely adore this freebie. I use it all the time when I need to remove any of the apps on my Mac without leaving a trace behind.Drag your app to AppCleaner and it finds all the files and preferences associated with that app, so you delete all of it. It also offers to uncheck files you may wish to leave behind (for example, if you have a newer/different version of the app and there's a plugin folder you wish to keep). Love it!
Used this app for over a year and it works just as described. What's better is that I believe the application is still free, but you need to check me on that fact first.
Using it for many years, so far so good, does what it has to do — removing apps and its hidden files
- MacOS included some functionality similar to what this app has provided for a long time, but is nowhere near as good as this one. If you use your mac at night, or for long periods of time, give your eyes some rest with this gem.
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.
- Easy to use to resize and move windows all over
I like this tool. It's simple, free and doesn't get in your way. You just set the hotkeys you want to use and manage your windows with comfort. It's also open source: https://github.com/eczarny/spectacle
A great window sizing and placement manager for macOS.
- Zenkit is a collaborative SaaS platform for project management, database building and more. From fluid brainstorming and research, through to a structured system for collaborative use, Zenkit is the flexible workspace you can use to organize anything. Now also available on Mac, Linux, and Windows.
It's a really easy to use solution for tracking your projects and workload, regardless of how simple or complex a system you use for doing so.
I enjoy it because it allowed me to start with a simple list, but then move to a visual representation over time.
Love the new desktop app for Zenkit. Have only tried on Mac OS but I am guessing even the Windows app would be smooth.
- If you want clean focused UI, iOS sync and powerful yet easy-to-use organization for your notes and writing bouts, look no further than Bear!This has become my 'go to' note app. It replaces Evernote for me. Syncs on all my devices. Can create links to other notes within Bear (like a wiki). Can use Markup. The *only* thing that holds it back from being perfect is that as of this writing you can't create tables.
I searched high and low for a replacement to the Mac OS default Notes app, which is incredibly limited in functionality and insufficient for my needs. I had one twist - I needed to find a note taking app for Mac that did not sync or store notes in the cloud. Bear does just that and it happens to be great. I really enjoy the hashtag categorization system and ability to have multiple tags on a note. It's a twist on Evernote style tags, but with a lighter-weight style of notebook organization and management.
Overall I love Bear. It is beautifully designed. I love the simple interface and the ability to tag notes is amazing. It makes searching for old notes so much easier. This is better than Apple Notes and I love it so much more than Evernote.
- RescueTime changed the way I approached my work. By being able to use a data-driven approach to seeing when I'm most productive, I was able to rebuild my work-day to optimize for calmness and give myself space for the parts of my day where I'm the most productive. It's worth paying for, and I can't even wrap my mind around how much time I've saved using it.
I love Rescuetime and have used it for more than a year. Affordable and a great way to manage how you are spending your time. It's not yet a full solution, and will need to expand to iOS mobile and also provide a more robust solution for offline tracking.
Extremely helpful tool if one struggles to improve his/her daily productivity.
- Paste is a life changer; having a stored tally of recently copied text, links, code has saved me countless time and headaches.
I set clipboard history to unlimited and can quickly search/find old code snippets. If I ever need to remember something, I just copy it then can find it later.
I've used a quite a few of these and Paste is by far my favorite.
I rarely shell out money for any kind of software, but while there are great free alternatives (e.g. Flycut), I haven't seen anything close to the performance / usability / UI in Paste. For $10, great deal.
- You can create custom mouse/touchpad gestures, keyboard shortcuts and a lot more.This app lets you configure trackpad gestures, keyboard shortcuts and more, it's amazing
- It's pricey, but once you do it you can never go back to Apple's calendar app.Fantastical understands when you type "haircut at 9 on Thursday" and will create an event called "Haircut" on the right day at the right time. Neat! It has been the best tool to connect my iCal and Google all in one place! Great looking. Fun to use.
- The older version is free and basically the same thing.
This looks like a product that automatically applies auto enhance to a bunch of photos. It does have a finished look that many amateur photographers would like, but I have some doubt that it's based on object recognition and AI. How many types of objects does it recognize? Is that recognition shown during the processing of the photos?
After a day of using I'd say that's great. Especially photos with blue sky on the background.
Would be nice to get in the future: import by URL and drag'n'drop right from browser/telegram.
What's about weird UI solutions:
1. When I'm editing a photo, it's not clear how to cancel it and start edit another one.
2. You split editing screen and "library" screen. It doesn't looks really good. I'd expect to see them in the same screen (maybe show library in the leftbar).
3. I can't resize a photo in the edit mode, but I'd really want it to see the details. Might you have it and I just missed that?
Summary: must try it. Not sure about price - if it works as perfect with large images as with small ones - the price is valid, because it might save a lot of time for photographers.
- This is the best tool to compare files on Mac.You simply drag the two files onto the app and it shows you a side-by-side view so you can easily see the differences. It has 3 settings on how to present the differences, whichever is easiest for the way you thinks! Great for .php web files, Word docs, stylesheets... all those files that would take too long to hunt down modifications!
