Must Have Apps for Your Mac

CloudApp (Free)

CloudApp is the quickest, easiest way to share screenshots and screen recordings. Grab a section of your screen using the global shortcut and get a link to share instantly.

Ulysses ($44.99)

Ulysses for Mac lets you focus when you need to concentrate. It keeps all your texts neatly stuffed in its intuitive library. With a few clicks, Ulysses can create beautiful documents from your manuscripts: PDFs, web pages, even iBooks-ready ePubs. With its simple, clutter-free interface, it will turn work hours into fun time. And mere thoughts into powerful stories. If you love to write, and write a lot, Ulysses is made for you.

Hazel ($29)

Hazel is a System Preference pane that works silently in the background, automatically filing, organizing and cleaning. It will remove support files of your apps which you delete, or it can clean the trash or the files you have spesified with the rules, or just organize your Mac.

BetterTouchTool (Free)

BetterTouchTool is a great, feature packed app that allows you to configure many gestures for your Magic Mouse, Macbook Trackpad and Magic Trackpad and also Mouse Gestures for normal mice

BetterSnapTool ($1.99)

Out of the box its a must-have; but make sure to set custom keyboard short cuts for the snaps you want; and I also like going into settings and make the preview window happen instantly, and I got rid of most of the rounding on the preview window.

popCalendar (Free)

popCalendar is a tiny calendar that fits in your menu bar giving you a faster access to your timetable. A presentation per month lets you find the day or the date you need while a click on a day lets you see all of the events of it. All of that without having to launch iCal!


Caffeine is a tiny program that puts an icon in the right side of your menu bar. Click it to prevent your Mac from automatically going to sleep, dimming the screen or starting screen savers.

BONUS: Clock (Free)

The best screensaver as far as I see.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
