I’ve had to reinstall OS X Lion in the past few days. Here is a list of apps that I really like (in no particular order)
Chrome / Firefox – Pretty much all that I use Safari for (sorry, apple!)
Twitter – obvious reasons
Alfred – really great app launcher (and other stuff)
Caffeine – keep your mac awake for longer
Skype – Well, more out of necessity.
Dropbox – would have been lost without this!
Virtualbox / vagrant – dev tools.
Homebrew + git + vim – more dev tools…
GitX – Nice OS X native git gui.
1Password – Conundrum – what do you do when your password file is in dropbox, and your dropbox password is in 1Password? Use the iPhone app! Brilliant.
Moom – really cool window resizing management for OS X
Growl – part of OS X but deserves a mention for v1.3 in the app store.
iTerm2 – much nicer than the default Terminal.
I’ll leave it at that for now. Will update this if I remember anything else that I have missed!
