Here is a list of some of my favourite Mac Software:
To stream movies from my mac to a ChromeCast or AirPlay device. Works like a charm
AppCleaner : https://freemacsoft.net/appcleaner/
When I want to uninstall software and all the crud they leave behind, this is my go to software.
My go to image editing software; versatile, works with lots of different file formats and is simple to use.
MusicBrainz Picard: https://picard.musicbrainz.org/
For editing MP3 tags in my music files, the best Mac MP3 Tag editor I could find. Free to boot. Version 2 is going to be even better.
This is my go to FTP software on the Mac. It’s available for Windows too. Shareware. Support the developer who has been making this wonderful software for years. I did!
DetectX Swift: https://sqwarq.com/detectx/detectx-swift-beta/
To catch and destroy malware that might sneak on to your mac. The link might say “beta”, it’s not it has been released as Version 1.
The bestest (I know 😉 browser out there for any platform.
uBlock Origin: https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/
The best ad/tracker blocker software. Period! I don’t use anything else. To find the installation plugin search DuckDuckGo for “uBlock origin firefox” or “uBlock origin chrome” etc.
Not exactly a software for the mac; just the best search engine which has a great balance of Privacy and search results. If you don’t find the results you want, then we can always go to google.
Having a hard time sleeping because of computer usage or iDevice usage. Get this little utility that will reduce blue light from your screen allowing the body to go to sleep in a more normal way. Available for Windows, Linux, Android too.
Plays any kind of video format file on multitude of devices. If VLC can’t play it, then chuck the file as it’s probably infected with some kind of malware (that’s been my experience).
Downloading those large LibreOffice or Linux ISO files? Use TransmissionBT to get then super fast via torrents.
Communicate securely with friends, colleagues. Transfer files. The best secure chat app out there. Also available on Windows, Android, iOS, Linux.
Explore these apps and ask if you need a recommendation for different software.
