For the past three years, I’ve been running a series called [Books] that, once a year, would list the books that I found indispensable to read. This year, considering the changes that I went through from a workflow perspective, I thought it would be appropriate to start focusing on apps that I found indispensable on my computers as well.
The list below includes my top picks for apps that I use several times every day and is organized in two sections: mobile and desktop apps.
I included only iOS apps because the iPhone and the iPad are my portable computers. I don’t use Android OS but also you will find most of these apps in the Play Store.
- Whatsapp. This app doesn’t need description
- Feedly. The best news aggregator
- Alien Blue. A reddit client
- Mailbox. The most fast mail processor I used
- Reminders. The iOS task manager
- Instagram. A photo social network
- CodeHub. GitHub repositories manager
- Tapatalk. The app to follow multiple online communities
- Plex. The best streaming media player
- Runkeeper. An app to track all the fitness activity
I just considered the apps I use daily or weekly. With that said, let’s dive in.
- Adobe Lightroom. Photo editing and management program. I began using Aperture but Lightroom is faster managing my 22.980 photos
- Autodesk Autocad / Inventor. Tools for 3D mecanichal design
- GitHub. The best way to host and manage this blog
- Google Drive. This app doesn’t need description neither
- iMovie. An Apple app to make videos
- Plex Home Theater. A Plex desktop client
- Safari. The Apple web browser
- Flickr Uploadr. The best way to publish photos on Flickr
- TextMate. The killer text editor for writing code
- Adobe Photoshop… you know
