    🦾 A list of reported app support for Apple Silicon as well as Apple M2 and M1 Ultra Macs

    I've seen this website referenced: https://doesitarm.com But I notice that it's not necessarily kept up to date. I'd check with the vendor of the application before ruling it out as many have since added "Universal" or "native" support. Universal means that the download includes both the Intel and Apple silicon bits and installs only what is needed for that system, so native install on the new M1 and later Macs and Intel code on the older.

  • Rectangle

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

    Download the app Rectangle. It's free, open source, and brings Windows' window management to the mac. I've got a MBA for work and a Windows machine for gaming, and I feel right at home on my MBA :)
