Apple Macbook Pro Users - best apps to install?

6 replies
Found 2nd Jan 2009
Does anyone know of a good website that reviews Mac apps?

Also.....what apps have you installed or are currently using that are essentials?

Must say that it all appears to be a bit of a minefield, with very little info available from other users.

Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator etc)
Roxio Toast
Spotify
Firefox
Final Cut Pro
Perian
Flip4Mac
VLC

You could take a look here:
macupdate.com/
download.cnet.com/mac/

I often watch the screencasts here to get a good understanding of what a particular app does before installing:
screencastsonline.com/
(some of the screencasts are for members only)

Some of my most useful apps:
Adobe Illustrator (vector software)
VLC (movie player)
Movist (movie player)
Handbrake (DVD compressor)
Screenflow (video capture)
NameChanger (batch file name changer)
UnRarX (decompresses RAR files)
Transmit (FTP software)
ClamXav (antivirus software)

Adobe suite
iWork
Little Snitch
Firefox
GarageSale is a must if you sell on ebay
Tooble
Mac Cleanse
X Slimmer
TuneUp which is a plugin for itunes that fetches the music info....

Anything you struggle with pm me
