I'm not really a pro user, but my two must-have Mac apps are Spark for Mac (email client for Mac) and CleanMyMac X (to clean junk and optimize performance) - both apps built by one company MacPaw in Ukraine which makes them even more awesome! ๐Ÿ˜Š

I use Pasta to manage my Clipboard and Proxyman whenever I am working with HTTP requests. Both serve a good purpose, improve productivity and solve a niche problem. Both made by Indie developers. After macOS Big Sur is out, I can add my tool for iOS developers, Swimbols, to the list.

I love menu bars apps and have too many of them ๐Ÿ˜… Bartender is great way to organize those. Notefile is my favourite just write a not thingy. It has iOS counter part with sync. Yoink is also a great tool if you drag & drop a lot Focused Task (which I wrote) is also something I use every day.
