My 20 Must have Mac OS X apps
My MacBook Pro of seven years, finally moved on. I decided to go for speed, as this will mostly be used for remoting into work, development, travel, and some Audio and Aperture work. Too bad I couldn’t wait for the haswell based chips, but I can’t be without a laptop while waiting for Apple. Hopefully they come out within the next two weeks, so I can exchange it 🙂 I got the 13″ Retina, with 128GB SSD for $1499.
Starting fresh is always a good idea, even if it’s extremely time consuming. Life will be real nice when *every app is web based*, since restoring my sudo “Chrome OS” setup was a snap – all my Chrome store apps just appeared after logging into my Chrome account. Bookmarks, settings, extensions. Everything. Nothing to configure there.
The Mac App store is also a nice way to roll, but none of my settings came back. I either had to restore those from backup, or just start fresh configs. Not worrying about where my license codes are, is another nice thing about the app store.
Here’s a list of my “Must Have” OS X apps, which I can’t live without (not in any particular order):
8. XCode – XCode command line tools
19. Android SDK / Android Studio
20. Amadeus Pro
