Excellent Mac Apps

There are quite a few apps I use regularly that I find really useful.  Here’s a list:

  • 1password – this one is huge.  It’s expensive, but worth it.  It keeps track of all of your passwords and allows you to stop using the same password on a bunch of web sites.
  • Adium – obvious, but worth mentioning
  • Dropbox
  • Evernote – free and great for keeping track of notes from meetings, etc.  Also an iPhone app with very good sync functionality
  • Meerkat – SSH tunneling.  Works great, but is a bit pricey.
  • Mental Case – great flash card app with iPhone support.  The syncing is a little clunky, though.
  • Reeder – RSS reader
  • Wunderlist – To do lists.  Also an iPhone app, but the syncing seems a little buggy right now.
  • DBVisualizer – Database client.  Works on pretty much every database.
Anyway, I would recommend all of the apps in this list.  They are all critical to my productivity.  The ones that are not free are worth the money, in my opinion.
