    These are my favorite free apps for Macs right now. There are probably a bunch of apps you guys love that didn't make the list like Alfred 3 (I'm just not a fan of it).
    But if there are other cool apps you think should have made the list, let me know. I'm always looking for more!

    Please do ANTI-VIRUS TOPIC for Mac. Do you use it? If not, why not? If you do, which one do you recommend… Thank you!

    Nice video. Do you have a good Finder alternative that you like? Something that feels like Windows Explorer?

    Hello, fellow Mac users.
    I wanted to share a little utility I found that I thought is really useful. It creates a collapsible section in your menu bar and allows you to put icons inside of it. This hides the icons and creates a way neater look IMO. I can't stand it when there are too many icons in the menu bar. I don't know why Apple doesn't let you remove these natively. Anyway, check it out with this link:
    It's free which is nice as well.

    So this video is great Dave, but as of 2019/08/07 it is getting a little be “dated”. So…I am curious if your recommendation of AirMail still holds now that they have added a subscription pricing plan?

    ai have always liked this app because of the massive amount of built-in actions and its ability to integrate with other apps in seamless workflows, but since the subscription announcement it has been catching a lot of negative reaction online.

    I have been considering switching to AirMail but I’m just curious what your thoughts about it are at this point in time?
