I’m trying out the following Mac software for the next couple of weeks:
- TextMate – I’ve read a lot of reviews saying it’s the best text editor on the Mac and I’m starting to believe them. It’s very intuitive, the way it automatically indents code, closes tags and a lot of other helpful things when writing lots and lots of code. This is probably something I’d use a lot.
- Things – task management software. I’m just trying to be a wee bit organized and its simple interface and workflow seems to be working well for me.
- BackBlaze – unlimited online backup for $5 a month, which I’ve decided to try after some horrendous and unexplained Jungle Disk+CloudFiles downtime. (almost a whole day of outage) And from the looks of it, it just might replace Jungle Disk for my automated online backup needs. I’d probably still use Jungle Disk as an online drive though — for files I need to access from different computers and for archiving stuff that I might need but don’t want to store locally.
- Transmit – Panic’s FTP software which I might actually keep since I miss the dual-pane interface that I’ve been used to.
- Coda – Panic’s all in one web development software. Somehow I keep comparing it to Dreamweaver (which is still my favorite web development IDE).
- Postbox – an email client that’s basically Mozilla Thunderbird Mac-style.
