As we all know, Mac OS X has a wealth of great third-party applications. Mac OS X probably possesses the most diverse and most well developed apps of any operating system. Every possible base is covered with at least two solutions available. Everyone has an their favourites and IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m going to list mine with a little description for each one (in no particular order).
Adium would probably be top of my list of all time favourite apps. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s probably the best multi-network instant messenger application available on Mac OS X. The main draw of Adium is the customisable interface. This means you can create a contact list that blends into your desktop so it isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t as intrusive as other messenger clients such as iChat.
Transmission is my weapon of choice when it comes to BitTorrent. It is, in my opinion, the best-looking BitTorrent client on Mac OS X. The UI is simple to use and clearly displays all the information I want to see in one window (no matter how many torrents are running). It must be noted that due to a problem within Transmission some trackers have blocked its use until the problem is fixed.
Appzapper has been one of the most hyped Mac OS X apps of the year. It is basically an uninstaller. You drag an application to the window and it and its associated files are zapped to oblivion (well, the trash can). The beauty of Appzapper is the simplicity of the concept and the execution.
VLC is a media player with an extensive list of out of the box codecs. This is by no means my default application for my media playing needs but it serves as a backup for the occasions when the default media player is having problems playing a file or when a codec isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t supported. VLC is also cross platform so everyone can experience the fun.
So there you go – a few of my favourite Mac OS X Applications. Why not let us know what your favourites are in the comments?
