TUAW List of Best Mac Apps

by Kelle on December 30, 2010

The best Mac applications I used in 2010 | TUAW.

We’ve told you about DropBox and Mailplane ($25). I’ve been trying out BusyCal (aka iCal pro, $50) and will most likely be purchasing that. I also just started using Divvy, which is similar to Cinch ($7) and SizeUp ($13), for automatically arranging my windows. I might want to look into Hazel for automated file management. Missing from their list is a launcher app like Quicksilver or Google’s Quick Search Box. Also missing is Transmit ($34), which is a very powerful FTP and file transfer app.

The second most useful application for me after Dropbox is 1Password (which btw can be synced via Dropbox). It’s not mentioned in the TUAW article because it’s mentioned in a similar article about the best Mac + iOS apps. 1Password not free, but it’s well worth the $$.

Aside from the applications already mentioned, my favorite app is probably Mail Act On which turns plain vanilla Apple Mail into a really marvelous program. I get a ton of email and can handle it all without ever taking my hands off the keyboard — and very quickly. Even with my terrible memory for keyboard shortcuts…
