Top 15 Mac Apps

Posted by Mark

OK since Nibaq did his I figured I should also do mine. This is a list of my favorite and most used Mac Apps:

1) Firefox: I used to be a big fan of Camino until I started using the extensions in Firefox and since then I haven’t turned back. No other browser on the Mac gives me this much flexibility and upgrade-ablity like Firefox.

2) Butler: Used to be Quicksilver until a few days ago when Nibaq told me about Butler. Butler works like Quicksilver except its about twice as fast.

3) Xbench: Takes a benchmark of my Macs speed and then uploads it online. Been using it for a few years and I keep track on how fast or slow my Mac has become over time.

4) JBidWatcher: This free software has helped me win a lot of bids on eBay.

5) Zippist: Free and simple. Drag a file to the app and it Zips it.

6) Stuffit Deluxe: Probably the most used software on my Mac right after Firefox.

7) TextEdit: Loved NotePad on Windows, Love TextEdit on the Mac.

8) RadioLover: Don’t usually pay for software but paid for this. Its like Tivo for internet radio streams. Even goes as far separating each song the station plays as a separate MP3 file with full ID3 tags.

9) Data Rescue: Saved my ass twice so far. This software helps me recover deleted files.

10) SharePoints: Allows me to share my folders on the Mac with PCs on the network.

11) JunkMatcher: Best mail.app junk mail filter out there.

12) Serial Box: Ummm.. for research purposes…

13) Tomato Torrent: Stopped going to the movies because of this.

14) Extensis Suitcase: With all these fonts I have there is no better font manager available.

15) Acquisition: Finally, this is the only P2P software I use. I actually wanted to buy this but they only take paypal. Its that good.

    Need to try Butler again, I didn’t see a big change from QS, just add some more menu bar items.

    You should try Acqlite instead of Acquisition, same thing, no nags, no need to pay.

    Tried butler, it is good on launching and such, but QS just gives more options when you pick a file.

    cool, I use butler because its faster and more efficient.
