    Best way to find new things is to have someone show you, so if you could, list 10 (or as many as you can) apps that you need / like/ etc

    links are great, so are pics.

    thanks

    does anyone have anyone more detailed input on some must have apps. And could you try to list some more recent ones, i have gone through the links and most of the apps listed are pretty old and or already installed on my mac(the more common ones)

    How about some underrated or uncommon apps that aren't as popular or well known?

    Any input would be appreciated

    One of my favorites that you have probably heard of and might already have is VLC player. It can play just about anything and its free!
