Top 10 Mac Apps

Recommended Posts

That application launcher is a custom-made application made by Apple for those certain features of the Apple Stores. Quicksilver won't sit as an application launcher on your dekstop, as far as I'm aware.

Ahh OK. That's bizarre though, the two apps look so similar. Hrm, any way I could steal the app from one of the powerbooks in the store onto a thumb drive or something? It looked really handy.

Nobody has mentioned Saft yet. It's a great plugin for Safari.

No one has mentioned StickyBrain. I absolutely love it. It's one of the few extra apps that I have loved enough to pay for!

The lack of OS bundled games (apart from Chess), like Windows has, is always something that annoys me about Mac OS X.

Yesterday I looked around and found this really cool Minesweeper game for Mac OS X called ProximityMines. It has audio feedback, an animated Dock icon, the ability to flag locations, best times and more.

Anyway, it's a really fun game that does the original and even the Vista version justice.

Thanks for the Adium, Minesweeper, and FetchArt applets. I sure can use those, but I hope that Adium allows MSN contact management under Yahoo when that is ready by June 2006! Also, iChat AV is driving me nuts.

As for which other applications I recommend, they include BZFlag (an online tank game), LimeWire, and Stuffit Expander (So you can open certain archives).

I have to say my new favorite app for OSX is AlmostVPN. It allows me to easily create SSH tunnels and socks proxy's.

Not really in any sort of order, or Mac specific for some, but definitely my top 10 most used apps.

AdiumX

Mail

Safari

Whatsize

The Terminal

Blender3D

Transmit

Aquamacs Emacs

Dreamweaver Studio 8

Photoshop CS2

Colloquy

Between Emacs and the Terminal I must look like a right geek! The Terminal is used to adminstrate my server, run backups, and quick ftp access. Emacs is used for java when I'm doing uni work, and obviously the terminal is used to help compile it.

Hope the links help people who are in the dark about what some of the stuff is.

Dougal.

EDIT: Yes, now that I count it there is 11 items, back to school for me!

What's a Mac without Adobe Creative Suite 2? :D Seeing how it's the graphics designers who swear by Apple the most, that is the must-have of them all. However, VLC, AppZapper, and Monolingual are also must-haves. For those of you who don't know what monolingual is, it's a program that gets rid of all those unnecessary language files and saves a considerable amount of space (1 GB+). You can get it at http://monolingual.sourceforge.net .
