Apps designed for the Mac often don’t get as much attention as apps for iOS, even though there are dozens of super useful, must-have Mac apps out there.
In our latest YouTube video, we took a look at five of the most useful Mac apps that may have gone under your radar. If you don’t already own these apps for organizing and sharing files, they’re well-worth checking out.
All of the Mac apps featured in our video are listed below, with prices and links.
Unclutter ($9.99) – As the name suggests, Unclutter is designed to clean up your desktop. It’s an app that’s designed to store notes, files, and everything copied to your clipboard. You can drag everything that’s on your desktop into Unclutter for a neat, organized desktop that still offers easy access to all the temporary files and information you need.
DeskCover (Free) – If you often work with multiple windows open but dislike distraction, DeskCover is an app worth looking at. It automatically highlights the active app window while dimming everything else in the background, plus it allows you to hide everything stored on your desktop with a single mouse click.
Dropzone 3 ($9.99) – Dropzone makes it easier to copy, move, and share files with unique, customizable actions that let you organize your data with simple drag and drop gestures. Drag a file into an application listed in Dropzone and you can copy it, share it to a social network, AirDrop it, and do tons more.
Bartender 3 ($15) – Bartender 3 is a super popular Mac app that lets you rearrange and hide icons on the menu bar of your Mac. With Bartender, you can put the menu bar items you use most often front and center, while hiding all the rest behind the Bartender icon for a much more streamlined menu bar. Bartender 3 is the only app on our list that you’ll need to download outside of the Mac App Store.
Magnet ($0.99) – Magnet is designed to let you rearrange all of your open app windows into an orderly layout for a clean, organized desktop. It’s called Magnet because your app windows will snap right into place.
