Audacity is my audio app of choice. I started using it on the PC and pretty much attempt to replicate things across platform. I record my podcasts using Audacity. And I have been using it for years and years... well over 5... is that possible? It is worth checking out, though I don't know if anyone on a Mac even needs to use it since there's Garage Band and all that.

I don't need this every day. I really don't. But it makes me happy that it exists and is available in the same way that I have happy that PGP and other public key encryption apps are still unbreakable. It makes me feel like I am free and I truly live in freedom. So, while I don't really have an issue with anonymity (should I) I love that it is freely accessible. Especially in other countries where they aren't so free.

DropBox has generally improved my life in a very real way. It syncs across everything. I can share things actively with my friends, my colleagues, and even photos with the charity I volunteer at -- from my iPhone. I take photos there and before I get home, the social media lady there, Jenn, has my full rez photos in her DropBox. Pretty awesome.

I got used to Thunderbird on my PC so it was natural for me to run it on my Mac. I have multiple mailboxes and prefer to use IMAP so it is elegant, though there are limitations. Most of my office uses Google Apps mail and so forth but I can't get used to the threaded way Google Mail works so I like looking at my mail in order not in conversations. Also, search works well and organization works well. It converts modern email to something I like better. Maybe more PC-like because I don't really like the default Mail program either. I took a point off because Calendar isn't built in (is it?) so I can't really integrate 100% into my GApps...

I can't believe how cruddy folks are on this site. Man, I live on TweetDeck. I can't keep track of all of my followers on my own so I use TD for persistent searches and to track the lists of my favorite friends, colleagues, and competitors online. So, I let it run and it is my dashboard. I have tried the other ones like Seesmic and HootSuite and I just don't like them as much. And, I can run it on my PC at work and my Mac at home and everything sort of syncs up. One star? Give me a break! Gah!

I have been using Nisus Writer since 1993! Back in the early Mac days. And it was awesome, especially because it worked with the most amazing Regular Expression engine and so forth. The app was pretty much the reward of academics, coders, and general erudite worshipers of language, especially foreign languages. Nisus had the best dictionaries and everything. And Nisus still is above and beyond other text editors and word processors. Amazing. Still.

I am so addicted. So, I have this on my iPad and I have it on my Mac and while it is available on Chrome now, that's not how I think as I am always convinced that I am going to want to use it when I am not online. So, I grabbed it and I love it. And no, I am not a teenager.

I am not sure if you can make screen captures using Mac OSX these days but I am a holdover of Snagit from the days I used it on my old PC and it was much better than the default Print Screen. Or is that PRT SCN or whatever. Anyway, I still like it and I still bought it. And it works and there's quite a lot of polish now because I guess Snagit has to compete with things built in to the Max. And, installed, it has a little tab popping out on the right of my screen when it is running so it is visually easy for me to remember.

The kitchen I volunteer at plays Spotify over the kitchen's sound system and was running Pandora before. The chef really loves it. So, I tried it out and I really like it because it allows me to extend on the song list that I already had from the CDs I burned years ago. It almost seems like my music love stopped in the 80s. Anyway, I really loved with TuneUp did for my old music, but Spotify is how I find my new music, and it seems to have everything, too. There was this band in the UK I liked called CUD and I couldn't find it until I looked for it on Spotify. Very cool. It rewards curiosity and serendipity.

I have this app for both PC and Mac because it's the only app I can find that does what it does on all of the CDs that I burnt a long time ago before CDs would phone home and query a track and album database. The app is able to restore a big mass of tracks that were Track 01, Track 02, Track 03 to be before, necessitating my shuffle-play lifestyle. My Mac and PC both have loads of RAM and I think that helps a lot. And I have good Internet too. I just don't have the problems on either platform and I can now use my iPad the way I want to which is with play lists and album art and a tight library devoid of duplicate tracks and unknown artists.
