Switched from Windows to Mac, 5 Favorite Apps

Here’s a list of my 5 favorite apps for OS X so far, now that I am using it full-time:


  • Sparrow email client – Has a UI similar to the Mac Twitter client.
  • Quicksilver App launcher – I love Quicksilver but be careful, I once did ctrl + space, typed in “Quicksilver” and hit enter, the computer exploded.
  • Pixelmator image editor – Been very easy to pick up so far.
  • Raven web browser – Still use Chrome/Firefox for most things but I have been using Raven more and more.
  • TextMate text editor – I’ll need to scoop up a copy of BBEdit at some point in the future as I have never had a chance to use it and would love to compare the two.
