I would like to share with you my main iMac/Macbook app setup. The following apps are the ones I use more frequently than others. The softwares I immediatly re-install when I set up a new working station.
Since I'm a huge fan of lightweight and extremely portable devices and I don’t want to carry my MacBook Air with me all the time, my workflow is heavily cloud-based so that I can effortlessly switch between my two main setups and my iDevices without losing the project files I work with.
With my daily workflow I operate with a vast number of apps, so I’ll mention only the ones that I really couldn’t work/live without.
Dropbox keeps all my projects and files in sync everywhere, Macbook Air, Macbook Pro, iMac, iPhone and iPad.
Clipmenu is a magnificent little addition to the Mac’s system clipboard that I’ve been using for a while now, it helps me manage my clipboard history with ease. Plus, it's free!
Things for task management. Project Management and GTD are two big passions of mine, I even developed my personal GTD online workbench during college and I’ve tried almost every “popular” GTD-oriented application out there, but I fell in love with Cultured Code's Things. Simply perfect.
Sublime Text 2 and Byword: I write in plain text using Markdown in Byword. Plain text files are stored in my Dropbox folder, and accessed from my iPad and iPhone using the Byword App — I’ve tried many “writing apps”, but Byword left a mark for it's focusing ability and reliability.
Sparrow has been recently acquired by Google, it provides me with the most intuitive and pleasurable mailing experience.
Mind Node with it's clutter free interface lets me concentrate in generating and connecting my ideas, it evens syncs with my iPad and iPhone making it my most used App during brainstorms
Google Chrome is my default browser. I like Chrome better than Safari beacuese of it's synching functionality, it's reliability, it's extensions and because it uses less memory.
Day One is an App that I often tend to underestimate. It gives my the ability to easely keep a daily journal, and the emotion of reading my past entries is priceless.
CloudApp to share screenshots, links and files on-the-go with my Twitter followers or co-workers.
1Password is used to securely store logins, credit card information and other private notes, synching it's databes with all my devices.
Due used to implement daily timers, track time and, most important of all, the Pomodoro technique.
Reeder is my defauly RSS reader on my Mac/iPhone and iPad.
Adobe CS6 used to make strange stuff for a living.
Coda 2 is an amazing web development tool with which I literally fell in love with.
Transmit is my default FTP Client. It even integrates with Coda 2 making my workflow even more productive.
