  • Rectangle

    Move and resize windows on macOS with keyboard shortcuts and snap areas

    I'd still recommend finding replacements parts your workflow if you were accustomed to them on windows. apps like rectangle give you snap windows which is probably the biggest pain point coming from windows.

  • Lunar

    Intelligent adaptive brightness for your external monitors

    Lunar is my favorite way to control brightness especially if using external monitor(s).

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support. Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!

  • HomeBrew

    🍺 The missing package manager for macOS (or Linux)

    If you're a developer or technically inclined you'll definitely want Homebrew for managing software you have installed.
