What I'm using on my Mac
Not ordered in any specific way
Spotify is my music streaming platform of choice, however I don't subscribe to Spotify Premium because I mainly use it on my computer, where I don't need offline listening, I'm given unlimited skips, and there aren't many ads.
I used to use Google Authenticator, but I became worried about what would happen if I lost my phone, as Google Authenticator doesn't sync with the cloud. I have 2FA enabled on my most important accounts, just in case.
Because I'm using a Android phone now, I don't get to enjoy the luxuries of the Apple ecosystem. I still prefer macOS and I love my MacBook Pro, but the one thing I miss about the iPhone is AirDrop. Filedrop isn't quite as fluid, but it's as close as I think I can ever get.1
Download Shuttle lets me take advantage of my new gigabit internet, and download files an blazing fast speeds, by downloading multiple sections of a file at the same time to reduce bottlenecking.
It's sometimes useful to get large files off of my phone, it's honestly a horrible app that crashes constantly.
iColors is a simple color picker that uses the system color picker to quickly copy the HEX code of any color on the screen.
CopyClip is a small app that I just keep running in the background in case I need to go back and find a previous item I copied. It's rarely useful, but it's saved me enough times that I keep it around.
It's great when I need to leave my computer doing something like downloading a large file or installing some software, and I don't want it to sleep and
Backblaze is a quite cheap cloud backup service. For $5/mo it comes with unlimited cloud storage and a Dropbox-like way of sharing files with anyone (up to 10GB can be shared at a time, $0.005 per GB after that)
I work with WordPress a bunch, and Local allows me to easily run WordPress on my computer without dealing with complicated local servers and
I've been using Gravit Designer for years now, and I happily subscribed to their new Gravit Pro tier. I'm excited for the new updates such as support for Adobe Illustrator files and better EPS import.
Adobe Lightroom is my photo manager and editor of choice. I decided to switch from Adobe Lightroom Classic CC to Lightroom CC because I prefer the interface, however the constant cloud syncronization can sometimes be frustrating.
I have a copy of Adobe Photoshop CS6 from an old computer, and I only use it occasionally to remove backgrounds or do some more advanced edits on a photo.
It's a nice calendar app for my Mac. It's built in, and it just works. That's all.
Whenever I take multiple images to make a panorama, this little tool does a great job of making a high-resolution panorama.
I've been a happy subscriber of Todoist Premium for quite some time now, and I've only had a few minor complaints, all of which have been quickly resolved by their fantastic support team.
