A selection of software I use often and can recommend.
Storing hundreds of passwords, syncing it between multiple devices, and sharing (some of) them with my wife.
A very nice looking flight tracker app. The premium costs a fortune, but a free version is good enough for occasional travels.
Converts videos to animated GIFs. Just this one thing, but perfectly.
Shows a preview of your web camera.
On newer MacBooks it can be open by clicking behind the notch.
My smart home is running on Home Assistant, yet I use built-in Home app more often. Mainly because it is integrated in Control Center.
This is where I get my job done. The best IDE for Kotlin development without any questions.
Menubar app which compliments default time indicator (unfortunately, it is not possible to hide it completely) and shows a small calendar on click and a list of upcoming events. Can connect to a meeting with a single click.
Journal helps me to review and reflect on what’s happening in my life.
Helps track rogue apps accessing unwanted services. Also sometimes it is handy in development to simulate inaccessible hosts.
Nicely looking recipe manager with nice calendar and shopping list integration features.
Simple RSS reader which can work without server and sync via iCloud. And it is free.
This map is different from Apple or Google Maps, as it is based on free open-source OpenStreetMap data. Not very good for driving (lots of turn restrictions and speed limits are missing, for example), but great for outdoor activities, like hiking or biking.
Easy to use and powerful image editor. Maybe it lacks some features Adobe or Affinity has, but for everyday non-professional use, it is more that enough.
All images on this page were created/edited with Pixelmator.
An indispensable app for sound editing. I’ve used it to produce a (now discontinued) podcast.
Free and open source app to resize and move windows via keyboard shortcuts.
Again, simple, but useful.
Over the years I’ve tried different music services, but every time I get back to Spotify.
Unlike video streaming, all of them have more or less the same content, but Spotify wins because of their recommendation systems and integrations.
A simple yet powerful browser picker. I wanted to write my own, but discovered this. It works exactly like I want it.
My monospace language of choice is
I don’t use ligatures.
