Yesterday I wrote about my 10 Most Used Mac Apps according to Wakoopa. I was a little surprised by some of the apps that showed up on the list and a few apps I really like didn’t show up in the top 10.
So these are the apps I wished were on, or expected to show up in, the top 10 list. In reverse order this time.
10. Quicken for Mac – I wouldn’t call this a favorite. It came with my first Mini so I used it. I upgraded once but skipped the others. I use it as a transaction register and not much else. It’s ability to download transactions from my banks keeps me using it.
9. VMWare Fusion – Tough choice between this and Parallels.
8. Parallels Desktop 3.0 for Mac – Still not sure which I like better, Parallels or VMWare but I’m using Parallels more.
7. Growl – Growl is a free program for Mac OS X that other applications use as a notification system.
4. ClamXav – Free Virus Checker for OS X which uses the opensource clamav engine as the backend. There’s no real-time protection but it can watch certain directories and scan files as they are added. I watch the directories shared with Windows and my download directory.
3. MacMozy – More of a service than software. I use Mozy for offsite backup of my data files. I’m backing up over 105K files totaling about 30GB.
2. MailPlane – Still in Beta
1. QuickSilver – Application, file, and information interface.
What’s your favorite Mac app?
