    I've recently purchased a MacBook Pro 13 inch and wondered which apps I should be downloading. Any ideas?

    Why did you get a mac if you din't know what you wanted to do with it? :)

    Well, there's this if you ant to do that, but if you don't and want to do this other thing then there's this other thing for that.

    And of course, this, that an the other thing are god for this, this, and this other thing.

    Seriously, what do you want to do with your Mac?

    O a helpful note, i find these to be pretty universally useful:

    Menu Everywhere - lets you use a mouse button to pull up the active apps menu, puts a menu bar on top fo a second screen, and other useful things
    Synk - keeps your data in sync in two or more folders - great for backups
    Cinch - puts windows into full screen or half screen by dragging
    TotalFinder - lots of useful finder enhancements including tabs on the finder window

    Everyone can use a good weather app, I like The Weatherman myself. I also like the better snap tool to line up two programs to split the screen in half.
