Bitwarden.com used for years and never looking back to 1password or selfhosted bitwarden_rs. If you go selfhosted solution, remember to donate to bitwarden.
(dont have any relation to bitwarden)
BBEdit, you can continue to use the basic features after the trial period is up. It has been around for decades and is built for the Mac, not one of these bloated Electron apps. It doesn't suck.
Bitwarden has a self-hosting version.
I can't provide experience with the self-hosted version, but I use bitwarden for 3 years now and I would never change. It works!
Hi everyone 👋 ,
Nota is a pro writing app for macOS designed for local Markdown files.
Nota has been a long journey for us (me and @erusev). We've been working on it full-time for more than three years, and before that, we spent another three years working on Nota's predecessor, Caret.
Right now, Nota is in beta, and we'd like to invite more people to test it. We thought some people here might be interested.
Nota is free to use, but now and then, it'll prompt you to purchase a license. Licenses don't expire (no subscription).
Keyboard Maestro's feature set is outstandingly expansive even among paid software, which means we will probably never see a free product that can cover all of KM's features. It would be more helpful to look for software that can replace a subset of its features.
Depending on what you want from KM, Hammerspoon may be a good alternative. You can also look up on AlternativeTo for other options.
I'm not sure where you heard that, the Universal Control feature is supported on the following devices (source: Apple):
In case any of you has troubles accessing Medium due to their limited premium articles, either use incognito or try this extension which will help you bypass paywalls:
Found this comment on another post on /r/mac:
>General Statistical Information
>When you use the Spark app we gather statistics and analytics on your usage of Spark. We may collect information about your mobile device and internet connection, including the application-specific device identifier, IP address, operating system, browser type, mobile network information, location, installed email, etc. This information is collectively referred to as "General Statistical Information". This data helps us to determine how different parts of the Spark app are used. This information is used by us to provide you with the best user experience possible.

So even if you're trying to keep your data away from Google and Facebook they'll get it any way. I'm not sure if anyone is aware of that but Spark downloads all your emails to their servers. They mention about that in their policy.

A lot of these are pretty great applications. Under Spectacle it may be worth considering Rectangle if you're looking for an open source free alternative, though I use Magnet. https://rectangleapp.com/
Also Sublime Text is only free for evaluation purposes. It is a paid application.
To celebrate todays launch of my app Keystroke Pro 2 I wanted to share a bunch of promo codes with Reddit. Grab them while you can! 🥳
And if you have another minute or so, your support on ProductHunt would mean the world to me 👏
+1 for Barrier KVM. It was a bit fiddly for me setting up, but operationally it's rock solid and cross platform. I run it across 4 systems, and if any of my laptops is closed at the time, it's cleanly skipped over.
Hey, I'm the maker!
Many of you have heard that macOS will have some of its own translation features starting with Big Sur. The very first logical question that may pop up in your head is "Why Mate then?"
I'm glad to answer! First of all, Mate serves a slightly different target audience. Mate is different from Apple or Google Translate at its core. We focused on a small niche of pro users & learners who live languages. Who translate so much that a simple double-click saves them hours every week as opposed to copy-pasting.
To name a few, here are things that Mate nails better:
* 103 languages instead of 12
* One-click translation of sentences and words on pages, not only full page
* Translate selected text in any Mac app, not only in Safari
* Uninterrupted writing flow – always available in the menu bar
* Phrasebook for saving vocabulary that you want to learn.
However, there are things that we proudly share with Apple:
* A firm stance on privacy
* Seamless full page translations in Safari
Kod is essentially no longer in development. The author got hired by Facebook and hasn't made any real changes in months. The last official release was in January.
It was never in a fully functional state to begin with (it's not even at version 0.1).
Superhuman seems to be targeting a market segment of business people, who make money via email, and where time is money, so the “AI-powered” app is like paying a personal assistant $360/year to manage your email and remove frictions.
If you’re targeting the exact same market segment, more power to you. If not, and you’re targeting the mass market, consider lowering your price to a one time fee, or a small subscription (Eg. $1.99/month).
Alternatively, consider a freemium model like Alfred where a subset of users are happy to pay to extend functionality. I feel like that model should be considered since you’re competing with free web browsers that have amazing extensions. There’s even a few free browsers that mimic your features such as workspaces and split screen. I forget the names, and reverted to Safari with bookmark extensions, and use Rectangle for easy split screen. I’m likely not your target customer if I’m not happy about paying $240/year when I can do it for free.
Hey guys, Indie maker here, excited to be able to share this with you. Viso is a beautiful minimal image viewer for MacOS (a replacement for Preview).
Features a non intrusive UI that allows you to get the most viewing experience out of your images.
Viso launched on ProductHunt and ended up as No 3 product of the day - https://www.producthunt.com/posts/viso
Leave me any comments or questions. Here is also a 10% discount coupon for you great guys - 'RD-VISO-10'
How is this different from the free alternative, Fluid?
edit: I'd like to bring the attention to an app that /u/bzgoldman "created": Sunlight
It's a direct copy (with strings and graphics changed) of the free app, Spectacle. If you don't believe me, check out the app on MacUpdate.
I'm the developer of nonky so i'm a little biased
I learned about Übersicht when i was pretty much through with my first release.
Übersicht is a great project and from the user endpoint might be better as it is much more mature, has more features and more widgets are available.
in addition, Übersicht is built so it is open ended in the way it lets you run arbitrary shell commends but is more restrictive on the way you build your widget.
nonky's api to the computer system is more restrictive but gives you freedom to do what you want inside the widget. like including whichever js libs you would like and use well known js frameworks to build the widget like react, jquery or even angular
I hope that clears the air a bit. i would be happy to answer any more questions and very open to suggestions
Enpass is amazing. using them for 2 years - absolutely great. I sync over iCloud (one can choose google drive and many others as well)
Should get much more love
Same name for the app, same subreddit name, if you did a Google search for "orangered mac os x" his site is the first thing that pops up, he's already listed in MacUpdate under this name, and his is open source.
You have to admit, it doesn't look so great. I think you should at the very least consider changing the name of your app. I know it's not like anyone owns "Orangered" but someone has the exact same app as you with the same name made a year earlier that he's trying to monetize right now. You sort of screw over his existing userbase by taking that name.
> I'm just doing this the way I envisioned it.
Right, and that's fine if it's just a hobby. Once you start trying to sell something though you should do a little due diligence to see if the app already exists or if the name is already used.
If you launched a video player called VLC, I would say the same thing.
I would add VS Code for a free editor (minus the popups of Sublime)
Scopie for those moments you're not sure if there's something in your teeth.
It's the type of app that either has enthusiastic users or people who shrug at it. It's a very powerful Finder replacement. Not my cup of tea, personally, and I use Forklift when I want a Windows Commander-like file interface. (Forklift was built as an FTP app, but does a lot more.)
But I don't have anything bad to say about Path Finder. At that price it's cheaper than their upgrade pricing.
In the search for a good Markdown editor for work, I’ve come across many, many apps to no avail, for the most part. Typora is unmatched in my opinion for the simplicity of it, but I’ve been trying Craft — it’s like if Typora and Notion had a baby. I like it and it supports Markdown really well, but I’m not sure if I’m a fan of the blocks structure yet. I miss being able to do inline images. But the organization and folder structure is great, and it works really well. There’s a free and paid tier for this one.
sorry, you are misleading.
features that were around years ago are still around. but to get any new features, you need to subscribe. or buy the new (wasn't around last time i had checked) $80 "one-time" plan. funny, i thought i bought a "one-time" plan when i paid for each platform individually.
how is bitwarden self-hosting any different than enpass's only option of self-hosting? both applications give you the option to host the data yourself. bitwarden allows you to host it in the cloud inexpensively, enpass doesn't have that as an option. bitwarden also supports YubiKey, U2F and Duo for additional security, not an option in enpass.
bitwarden has gone through several years of security audits, and is completely open-source. want to review their code? you can. enpass is closed source other than the sqlcipher security engine they use to encrypt the database. so if you really value security, the choice is pretty obvious.
You may remember us from last year (though on a dif account cause I got locked out of my OG). Today, we're really excited to announce Coherence 5, a major update to our app that allows users to turn websites into applications. The update includes huge improvements to how apps interact with Google Chrome, and all new features like the Extension Manager, which allows use to easily add features to Coherence apps.
Here are six licenses for users of /r/macapps:
id993182995636odr~~ Sorry folks, appears all codes have been used. Follow me on twitter @bzgoldman or check out our Product Hunt for more chances at a free code.
If you do grab a license, or even if you just like the concept, please up vote here and on Product Hunt.
Feel free to ask me and questions.
Karabiner is a powerful keyboard customizer. I use it to remap Caps Lock to a meta hyper key. It gives you another layer of keys that you can map to whatever shortcuts you want.
The feature from Windows and Ubuntu I missed most was the dragging windows to edges to resize.
I tried a few apps but went with Rectangle as it was minimal, easy to set up, and free.
Another app I love is Bartender 4, great for organizing the menu bar.
If you have a MacBook Pro or use the Magic Trackpad, Swish is a must have app.
Hi u/astoilkov, just test drive this tool for a while and so far, I love it. However, two things I need to point out:
Anw, I will definitely test Nota for a while and report back to you!!
We are releasing the first beta version of our app: Soda Player (for Mac and Windows).
We’re a bunch of internet geeks that were getting tired of how hard (and how many different apps it takes) to do one very simple thing, playing videos in a modern way.
Here is what it can do:
The app can play local, web and Bittorrent video files in all formats instantly.
The app embeds its own custom VPN that is used to protect your privacy when playing non-local files.
The app will automatically find subtitles in many languages for whatever you are playing (we’re very proud of our matching algorithm, from our tests it works better than current subtitles tools out there).
Best part for the end, all of the above works on Chromecast and Airplay, just one-click away!
We’ve worked pretty hard and we would love to hear your feedback and suggestions (and bug reports!).
You can download the app at https://www.sodaplayer.com (it’s in open beta at the moment, but we may temporarily put the beta on hold if we get too many users, so get it fast!).
Cheers (and happy new year to everyone!)
If you trust google you can try google remote desktop. <strong>https://remotedesktop.google.com</strong>
Using it as alternative to expensive (corporate) teamviewer for few years for some clients who prefer it and it works fine.
This browser is an interesting experiment, but has zero peer review. I'm going to run it through mitmproxy and see what all it's actually doing to see if there is anything wonky going on.
Without a proper ad-block you can still be tracked in session by content providers, you have to NOT PULL content or interact with those servers in any way to really get a handle on privacy. This browser doesn't help with that.
Also - They pull from http://epicsearch.me/ when you load up the browser for the first time. I'm sure it was just an asset from the intro page: https://www.epicbrowser.com/privacy/intro.html however I didn't go to epicsearch.me, so it's obviously interacting with their own tracking/search/whateverthefuck engine.
I call bullshit on this whole affair.
The epicsearch.me is a regular target for epicbrowser, even when I don't go to it. The intro page had no assets from epicsearch and it still makes calls to it. There is certainly some wonkiness here. I'm not even going to bother to disect this anymore.
Yep, the Calendar, Periodic Notes and Timeline plug-ins all make time-based notes really powerful. Knowledge Graph, DataView, Tagging, Random Notes and the Review plug-in all help you visualize and/or get back to previous notes a verity ways.
My only other suggestion along with the previously mentioned Agenda would be NotePlan if Obsidian isn’t your thing.
Pretty cool, but I wish TextExpander wasn't so damn expensive. I can do pretty much everything TextExpander does with aText, for $4.99. Snippet Suggestions are definitely not worth $40. Just my opinion, of course.
Notion - Unlimited blocks and pages. There are unofficial Linux apps available, but I don't know if they work properly. I love Notion because there's more than just blocks and pages.
Obsidian - Free second brain. Also available on Linux. I only use this for writing. You can do more but I don't want my writing system to be complicated.
Happy to share our deal too: 50% off Flawless App: https://gumroad.com/l/SyRKm/50_discount_black_friday
If you work with mobile designers and developers, that will save you a ton of time.
Flawless compares expected design with real app right during dev process, highlighting visual bugs. Eliminates a lot of manual back-and-forths.
Uber, Basecamp, Spotify, Nike already using it. Give it a try as well.
Yabai is probably the best automatic window tiler you can get for Mac. It has quite a bit of setup involved, but is great once you have it setup.
This is a decent tutorial on how to set it up though.
I use a combination of free apps to stack windows, and enable middle click (3-finger-tap), full-screen windows, etc.
I then realized I'm not poor, coughed up $20 for a license of BetterTouchTool, and life has moved on.
I made this comment elsewhere for a Windows switcher so I’ll just copy/paste here:
Use Magnet (found on Mac App Store) or Rectangle (free app) to snap Windows like on Windows 10.
Alfred (free) is like Spotlight but many prefer Alfred, so they replace Spotlight
If you like to hide your Dock, you can change the speed in which it animates by pasting the following code into Terminal:
defaults write com.apple.dock autohide -bool true && defaults write com.apple.dock autohide-delay -float 0 && defaults write com.apple.dock autohide-time-modifier -float 0.4 && killall Dock
You can change those number variables to adjust the speed. To remove all of these changes, and bring back your dock, simply paste the following command into a Terminal window:
defaults delete com.apple.dock autohide && defaults delete com.apple.dock autohide-delay && defaults delete com.apple.dock autohide-time-modifier && killall Dock
You can auto hide the Menu bar, (although you can’t change the speed). To auto hide the Menu Bar in Big Sur, go to System Preferences > Dock & Menu Bar and click the checkmark next to the “Automatically Hide and Show the Menu Bar” listing. To do so in previous macOS, go to System Preferences > General.
There’s a paid app called Bartender that lets you auto hide all the utility apps in the Menu bar that you want. It can get cluttered up there if you’re like me and have 30 utility apps running in the background, so these kind of apps help maintain visual minimalism. There’s now a free alternative to Bartender called Hidden Bar which I use.
These are things I do on every Mac I own because it makes it feel twice as good to use. So I highly recommend giving them a try when coming from Windows. The whole benefit of Macs is that they feel better to use, and customizing the details goes a long way toward that feeling.
There are a lot of things, one thing that stands out in daily use is that the file search is a lot better than MacOS Spotlights search.
There also Workflows you can build for repetitive tasks. Just have a look at their website to get an insight in alfreds capabilities: https://www.alfredapp.com
You shouldn't! But, you could read their FAQ to see if they are open source: https://www.epicbrowser.com/FAQ.html
Their answer is a bit odd. They are open source...they just haven't released their source yet, but you can email them and they'll be happy to help out. That doesn't sound great, but it could be legit. And the entire browser is based on chromium, which is a pretty good choice for a base.
That all said, it looks like this is basically a fork of chromium that changes some default settings and captures some of the functionality you could get through add-ons like AdBlock and whatever else.
Why not just post the StackSocial link directly instead of this shady URL shortened version?
Also: in case anyone was wondering like me, This plan is only available to new users

My name is Guan and I’m the developer of WriteMapper. It helps anyone with writing deadlines get from idea to final draft in no time, by turning mind maps into written content. You can shape and structure your work using a mind map, before exporting to various text formats including Markdown, HTML and Microsoft Word.
Here’s a highlight of some of WriteMapper’s best features so far:
I’d love to hear from your experience; I’m looking for any feedback on the app and how it may be improved, so I’d be very excited if you gave it a try and tell me what you think!
It is open source at https://github.com/skyfex/bytecontroller/, you know?
I compiled it for you and added a <key>LSUIElement</key><true/> (so it won't be showing in your menu bar) and the icon manually. I'm no programmer but it seems to be working.
Monterrey's free Preview now has OCR.
Also, the $7 forever app called TextSniper (https://textsniper.app) was a game changer for me. It's 99.99% accurate I've found over the years, even with crooked text.
And that Monterey Preview text grab works pretty good. I haven't done much of a comparison yet of Monterey Preview to TextSniper.Just habit using TS. Also, I like some of the other features that TextSniper has, so I'll probably stick with it. Learn more here (I'm not connected to the company):
I just found this one that works well enough: http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/25390/get-lyrical
Grabbed an album of Johnny Cash lyrics for me with no problem.
edit: best for very popular stuff. Couldn't find but 2 out of 12 Allen Toussaint tracks, while the first google link for "song artist lyrics" gives me a hit. It must be using a specific site.
> Yes, but this one is a genuinely good app.
That is not the reason you promoted it, though.
> I could have unlocked the licensee a lot easier by just downloading a few copies myself using vpn.
You also could have paid for the app or submitted a link to https://matthewpalmer.net/vanilla/ and provided the referral link in a comment with an explanation, which would have been a transparent and honest approach.
Instead you decided to be a lazy spammer. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
You can do this via Hammerspoon, http://www.hammerspoon.org
I have some things occurring on battery mode, also when the WiFi is not my home WiFi.
Yes. There is totally software that can help you. Its called Hazel and it is super smart. It can scan files in a folder and then move them to where they need to go by the date, content, etc. https://www.noodlesoft.com/
In terms of downloading the files. Its a bit more difficult. You could use something like Keyboard Maestro to record macros to automatically download emails and attachments. But once they are downloaded Hazel can take care of the rest.
I personally tried it and its useful but I couldn't afford the price point. About 45$
You can get an amazing uninstaller called 'App Cleaner' (https://freemacsoft.net/appcleaner/). It's free and will clean up those extra files that apps leave behind.
It's a specific app and is literally called AppCleaner: https://freemacsoft.net/appcleaner/
Basically instead of just deleting the .app file in your Applications folder, you open this app and drag the .app file to AppCleaner's window and it will search for all the misc files and folders that relate to the .app file.
I actually left Alfred for Raycast for a while and then came back.
The new theming options look much nicer and the simple workflows that you can do are just great. Raycast has added parameters to commands but I don't like their solution to it (basically adding an input inside an input).
I haven't used Aperture at all, and it's been several years since I toyed about in a trial copy of Lightroom, but I can think of reasons to avoid both of them:
> Wait, so Inkscape wasn't open source?
Nobody said macSVG was the first or the only open-source SVG editor for macOS.
One problem with Inkscape is that no binaries are provided for macOS.
I don’t have an app that solves what you’re looking for, but just wanted to put this here incase it’s useful for your workflow: https://www.apple.com/macos/monterey-preview/features/
On that page, search for “Quick Note”.
In macOS Monterey, Apple is adding a Quick Note feature which allows you to use one of the hot corners or a shortcut key to instantly bring up a small note to jot thoughts down.
It’s also going to be available on iPadOS and can be accessed using a slide-in-from-the-corner gesture using an Apple Pencil (if I remember correctly).
I plan to switch from Tot when this feature rolls out. Hope it helps?
A couple more options to choose from: "The Best Mac Genealogy Software" (MacFamilyTree comes in fifth in that comparison).
Less stylish but free (as in beer and speech) is Gramps.
Yep, if you purchase the Mac app (that integrates not only with Safari but all of macOS), you'll automatically get Pro in Firefox, too. You just need to create a Mate account in the Mac app and then sign in in Firefox.
I'm a big fan of 'Day One', in spite of the cost (it's a subscription). It syncs between all your devices, automatically tracks time / date / location, let’s you keep separate 'journals' and supports tags for easy organizing, is easy to search by date, location, see entries on a map, include photos - and has reminders, if you need that. Also has export options. I use it pretty frequently to remember specifics about places I've gone, dates, etc - on top of the whole journaling/ diary thing.
I've been using Vivaldi for years and love it!
It runs on chromium so you can use any chrome extension with it.
Its biggest selling point is how customizable it is; It's really meant for people that want complete control over how their browser looks and behaves.
Check it out! https://vivaldi.com
SuperCard is a bit of an odd duck these days. It's a modern successor to Hypercard like Livecode is. And, where Livecode is cross platform (Mac, Win, Lin, iOS, Android, HTML5), SuperCard focuses solely on macOS development.
It's still a 32 bit Carbon app that is backward compatible to Mac OS X 10.4 (although some features require 10.5 or newer). Because it's still Carbon and it's still 32 bit (there is no such thing as a 64 bit Carbon app, despite Steve Jobs claim that Carbon would always remain a first class technology within macOS) its, and presumably all Carbon apps', future is in question.
In a day and age when mobile and web are increasingly becoming more important than desktop development, it's strange for a development environment to focus solely on desktop and on one OS. However, for anyone still keeping a Hypercard application or stack alive (via old hardware or emulation), SuperCard offers a way forward- at least for the time being. Or, if you want a development environment that is miles easier than Xcode and you want to focus on macOS development, SuperCard might be your ticket.
Lastly, and I'm not affiliated with Solutions Etc., just mentioning this, it is 20% off until May 31.
Quiver 2 is finally here! Quiver 2 brings to you cloud syncing support, shared notebooks, Markdown preview, presentation mode, and many more awesome features!
Suggestions are welcome.
You may want to give NotePlan a look, as I think it covers all of your requests. I use it for taking notes and capturing things, and use Things for actually managing the tasks that come out of it. NotePlan also has a robust task management system, but I still prefer the elegance of Things for that. The NotePlan dev is also quite active in their Discord and is very responsive to user requests and bug reports
I've been using it for a couple of years. as /u/rubya_eleven mentions the inability to support multiple tags per task is really annoying. My kludge is to add tags to the Notes field prefixed with #.
At work we use Rally for project management, so I have tasks there and I have tasks in OmniFocus, and I need to keep track of both. I haven't come up with a good way to synchronize these, but admittedly I haven't thought too hard about it. I'm sure the REST API to Rally can be used in conjunction with OmniFocus Pro's scripting support.
I haven't experienced any problems syncing between my Mac and my iPhone.
No problems with performance, though I don't have a ton of tasks yet.
I switched to OmniFocus from Things, I can't remember why beyond I'm a long time user of OmniGraffle and OmniOutliner.
Obsidian+ Excalidraw extension is great.
EDIT: realized you want to actually just draw write over the text itself and I think for that I prefer something like Notability personally.
You could take a look at Obsidian, it is free, offline - so no worries about accidentally syncing it. You can sort the notes by name, creation or modification date, has quite a few ways of searching the notes (by searching for a word in the notes content, by tag). It is nothing fancy like Notion for example, but it seems from your description it might just suit your needs. It has also some markdown capabilities, mind-map like features, linking. And it is also lightweight on the machines resources.
I don't use many paid apps since I trust open source for faster bug fixes and security but I'll still list the one's I pay for:
Pdf expert : The only pdf app I can use since it's fast ,clean and has dark mode (Applied to the pdf content) Your eyes will thank you
Dropbox: Family plan offers 2tb of cloud storage
Carbonite : Backup your Mac to the cloud ( as apposed to locally via time machine)
Intelij: Jetbrains professional ide
Mullvad : VPN service
Apple One subscription
/u/outcoldman — is there any documentation or a tutorial explaining how to write a "rewrite" rule?
I have no experience with RegExp, but I know the scheme for the rule I want to write. (Notion: change https://www.notion.so/workspace/... to notion://workspace/...)
Craft is Apple-exclusive, so I guess that's a non-starter for you.
I do believe that Notion has gotten a lot faster, thanks to a recent change to their database architecture. They even wrote a blog post about it: Herding elephants: Lessons learned from sharding Postgres at Notion
Thanks I appreciate it. Make sure to join the slack. i am extremely active there and have plenty of channels for feature requests and bug reporting. Would love to hear your ideas there. I don’t have a public roadmap but you can see here what the team is working on. These are simply requests and reports from users
My recommendation would be the renowned free Handbrake. Essentially a simple GUI for the awesome FFmpeg CLI library (which has a very steep learning curve, strictly for professional use)
Also interested in this. I love Forklift but I'm really missing the OneDrive context menu and capabilities available in Finder.
I guess this needs to be a feature request for Forklift - they even mention in their FAQs that it's not supported: https://binarynights.com/support
I'm sorry, but I don't understand what you're asking? LibreOffice doesn't require a lot of memory at all, so I'm not sure what you're referring to. LibreOffice will give you a word processor, a spreadsheet program etc. See here for more information https://www.libreoffice.org
I install a mix of App Store apps and non-App Store apps, but I completely understand and applaud the concern. It's being featured on Product Hunt and the developer is there answering questions, if that helps establish trust.
I would love to add such a feature, but sadly as far as I know none of the most popular mobile players offer an officially supported API that could be used for sync.
Hopefully one day, but I doubt they'd be that interested in putting in the work for people to use someone else's front end.
It would be interesting if someone built a service like Feedly for podcasts, that all players could sync with, allowing users to have their podcasts and play histories in one place and then be able to seamlessly use their preferred app on each platform.
built-in app switcher allows you to switch between applications, if the application has several windows then it's inconvenient to switch, for example, I have a text editor (2 windows) open and several windows have been opened safari
I have a lot of ideas that I want to implement in WindowSwitch, since I tried a lot of solutions and I did not like any of them.
on the other hand, most people are used to the fact that they use application switching instead of windows ... But many do not like how the built-in app switcher works, I also do not like the standard implementation like it is done in Mac OS, so I've implemented more than a year ago Command-Tab Plus, a lot of convenient features, for example, you never interfered with the fact that applications are hidden but still displayed with cmd-tab? or the fact that there are working tables but you can not fully have mail and editor on one desktop, on the second safari ... or on each monitor your own applications?
All this I implemented in Command-Tab Plus, look at the site, although I'm not a designer, you need to install and try the application ... If there are questions - write, I do not speak good English and a very bad designer, I just write the code (and it is not always good).
Most of my applications are created because everything I did not like on the market, for example MaxSnap - I previously used SizeUp, Flexiglass, but I did not have much ... I wrote MaxSnap
Hello, while working on my commercial application - Command-Tab Plus! I developed a small utility for switching between windows for macOS, I will be grateful for testing, criticism, recommendations and tips.
Send your feedback directly from the application or to sergey (at) noteifyapp.com.
Sorry for my English.
might give this app a try, could you kindly tell us why is your app better than context?? https://contexts.co/
anyway, congratulations on writing such awesome apps! hope one day I can be a dev too!
IMHO, Mos gives a better smooth scrolling experience and SteerMouse – better mouse buttons functionality control than Mac Mouse Fix.
I heard about Dozer (open source & freeware) which does this but I've never used it. I already owned Bartender. Bartender is a terrific app.
I have this exact situation set up using Hazel and the native Automator.
If you have Hazel or install Hazel, I'd be happy to share the rules I have set up within it and the Automator Workflow I'm running.
You have my $0.99, but I agree with /u/noblecloud that changing the wallpaper is enough for me to not use this. I too have a folder of wallpapers that OS X is cycling through every 30 minutes.
Changing the wallpaper is an fine way to associate the desktop with the Space, but it would be great if other options were available. For example, put the ADS icon on the Dock and display the current desktop name when the mouse overs over it.
Anyway, this is an interesting concept. I'm thinking of ways I can add some rules to Hazel.
I'm stumped. Can't think of how to disable the keyboard from 'waking screen,' neither with stock macOS options, nor an app. A quick google showed me nothing. Sorry I couldn't be much help. I see its been 11 hours and nobody's responded, so I thought I'd pop in and let you know you weren't ignored. Cheers.
(The only thing I can think of that may be of help, although you'd have to dig deep into customizing it, if its even possible, is Karabiner Elements app.)
If you guys like this app and are Alfred users, then I suggest you install the IINA Workflow to gain faster access to IINA controls no matter what app you're in.
Not natively, but you can add additional support to Quick Look by installing optional packages through Homebrew.
Once you have Homebrew installed, I recommend just installing this whole batch of QL packages:
brew install qlcolorcode qlstephen qlmarkdown quicklook-json qlimagesize suspicious-package apparency qlvideo webpquicklook
Note: None of these packages are mine and I recommend you do your own research on installing randomly recommended packages from someone online, but every package I mentioned above is a common/popular/tested package. Still, install at your own risk.
Caesium - Free/Open Source

Alpha version is also for mac and works fine.
Note: Do not forget fill suffix for output if you want output to same folder - there is gray _compressed after first run which is just example and no suffix is added so overwrite your original files - (it is alfa version) - compression works fine, used it for long time on windows.
Yeah I've considered Graphic but it seems to be abandoned, the last update was 3 years ago.
I've been recommended Vectr, it seems to be perfect for my use case (other than being online).
That is insane. Due to the poor currency it costs $40 here... at 50% off launch sale?? So the crazy dev is going to try and sell this for $80 soon???
Since MPlayerX became a spam/malware delivery system, I switched to MPlayer OSX Extended
Hasn't been updated in 2 years but still works perfectly on El Capitan, just had to replace the ugly icon
same for mail https://imgur.com/a/Ugnl6lg
plus it seems the integration of intel app should be work perfectly (we still need to test if this is true too). no other real important features to improve workflow in the new macos (since control center can already be done with another macapp). for some user maybe some safari feature (not for me). here all details: https://www.apple.com/macos/big-sur-preview/
in my opinion the separation widget - notification is better (since i never checked notification), but maybe some user prefer the new style. the question is more "will older widget now works or not?", because they changed the structure.
Try the amazing Hear from Prosoft. It can customize the sounds by apps(Safari, Firefox, etc.)
There is also Fidelia from Audiofile which specializes in high def customization
….. from my chat with support the other day ….
“You can purchase a standalone license for version 7 by following these steps.
Download 1Password 7 from here. then install it.
Once you have 1Password 7 installed, open the program, click on the 1Password menu in the top left and click License.
From here click on "Buy Now" and another popup will open.
Click on the blue "Need a license? We have those too." link under the green subscribe button.”
But you better can verify yourself with 1Password support
Consider https://1password.com/. The "pro" version is cheaper, and has a lot more support on numerous platforms. Get's frequent updates and has awesome 2FA support, with things like auto-copying the 2FA code on mac/ios, (maybe windows?).
This won’t replace your browser but it will definitely take out a huge load from any browser you use. You can manage all your web applications in Stack and use any browser browser for surfing and browsing.
Ive been using Free Download Manager for some time now. I'm not sure about blocklists, but it does have a proxy feature I use all the time. https://www.freedownloadmanager.org
The UI is trash (its cross platform), but its hella faster than transmission for me!

The problem in this case is VERY specific to SourceForge, not your googling. SourceForge has been WELL-KNOWN to include malware in its installers for the past several months. Just google "SourceForge malware" and i'm sure you'll find hundreds of news stories about it.

I did search my mail to make sure I didn't get this one in some bundle, but no luck.
I downloaded the trial though and it's nice. Did great on my test documents!
Found it for ~~$15~~ $13.50 (code DAD10) at https://stacksocial.com/sales/pdf-converter-ocr-6-lifetime-license
> Though when I try to unzip the darwin one, it does nothing?
Can you be a bit more explicit?
What do you mean by “it does nothing?”…
It does nothing after trying what?
• It does nothing after extracting the Zip archive?
• It does nothing after double clicking “LosslessCut.app”?
• It does nothing after executing ~/Downloads/LosslessCut.app/Contents/MacOS/LosslessCut?
• It does nothing after the application is already running?
Knowing that this is an Electron app  I wouldn’t be surprised if it is completely broken.
Hi! To my despair HazeOver is still rather unknown app despite overwhelmingly positive reviews (almost perfect 5 stars all time). So I'm launching “I know you will love it so give it a go” sale. *IKYWLISGIG for short.
The app is perfect if you have too many windows open, have a huge display or multiple monitors. You'll stay focused on your task and will find the focused window easily.
If you haven’t bought it yet, now’s the best time ever. If you’re already a happy user – thank you! Please let someone know about HazeOver or just share the link.
I'm a big fan of everything that OMNI puts out (I use OmniFocus probably more than literally any other productivity app) and they have OmniOutliner which seems in the same vein as WriteMapper.
While it might not be quite as feature-rich as Omni's offering, you win big with the price being substantially more manageable for most users. I used OmniOutliner for awhile some time back and didn't see myself really using it enough to continue, but your app might be easier to justify and keep using. I may have to give it a download.
Thanks for the links -- but I read all the documentation when I first gave it a shot, and still reached the aforementioned conclusion.
Glad you found the pertinent parts of TextExpander -- I can't say I've had any trouble using the variables and options, but I'm sorry to hear you found them difficult and confusing to use.
I also can't speak to the "lots of clicking" -- my hands rarely leave the keyboard, and never on account of a TE snippet.
All that being said: sounds like you're enjoying TeaCode, so don't let my lack of enthusiasm bum you out -- use the tools that make sense to you.
For me, I'd love to switch off TE to something else that doesn't have a subscription -- but I'm yet to see anything come close to replicating the full feature set, particularly with the iOS component. That's why I tested TeaCode in the first place -- fingers crossed in a couple years it'll be what I'm looking for.
It’s only a matter of time until someone implements the same thing, supported by ads and paid premium features, with all the processing happening locally in the browser.
If I had sensitive PDF files to process, I would certainly not be comfortable with sending those files to the cloud, ever.
