Must-download apps for your Mac 🍎
New Mac Essentials
Other than the usual suspects of Chrome, Dropbox, Spotify, and your pick of non-Apple made email client, what are the first apps you download when setting up your new Mac?

We asked the Product Hunt community and found some great under the radar apps. A few interesting trends also came about...

1) Mac users LOVE menu bar apps. Many responded recommending CaffeineAlfred, and f.lux.

2) macOS really needs to come with a built-in windows organizer. Popular solutions include: Spectacle, Magnet, and BetterSnap.

3) The ubiquity of Slack means that Slack-like :emoji: commands are now essential, in every app. Rocket does just that.

4) Use a password manager... especially after it feels like everybody is losing your personal data. 1Password was recommended a lot.

5) Download this app last.
