My 10 Favorite Mac Apps

After I wrote about YNAB yesterday, I started thinking about which Mac apps I use the most and wouldn’t want to live without….  Here they are:

Wunderlist:  Free and awesome task-management.  Syncs with iPad, iPhone, and has a web app.

Evernote:  The catch-all for small notes, lists, web-pages, etc.  Also syncs with all your devices and has a web app.

DropBox:  It’s truly amazing to be able to access your files from anywhere on any device.  Dropbox also adds great functionality to a lot of other apps.

iCal:  I know, I know.  It comes bundled on your Mac.  That doesn’t make it any less useful.  I use google to keep all my calendars in sync.

Chrome:   I can’t really say I love this app, but I have to use a web browser, well, a lot.  Chrome is my browser of choice for most things.

YNAB:  I wrote about this yesterday….  In my opinion, it’s the best finance and budgeting app out there.  If you need help managing your budget, go try it out.

Skype:  I know it’s old news, but it is still amazing to me every time I talk face to face with my friends in Ethiopia, or even with family half way across the U.S.  Good stuff.

Sublime Text 2:  I started learning Web design and development about 9 months ago.  Before that, I had never heard of Sublime Text 2.  Now I use it daily.

1Password:  All of my passwords are now different and 10 or more characters long.  And guess what… I don’t have to remember them!  Security is awesome.

Sparrow:  I remember in college when email was the new thing.  I had to go to the computer lab to check it, and it was so fun!  Sparrow made email fun again.  Not as fun as in college, but still….

Whelp…. there’s my list.  Did I miss anything?  What’s on your list that isn’t on mine?



  1. Thank for the list. Don’t know about Sublime Text. Recommend Numi for calculations:
