    Hey all,

    I will be getting a macbook pro for school, and since I'm getting a $100 card. What are some good developer apps in the market?

    Is Textmate in the app store?

    Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    It kind of depends on what kind of development your going to do, but if you are looking for a good coding text editor I would recommend Smultron: http:// (Mac App store link:
    It supports many languages, it is fairly customizable and it has a really good UI.
    Also, if you don't have it yet, you should grab a copy of Xcode, it is a must. (Mac App store link:

    It would be web based, like rails, php, a lot of javascript.

    And I will use Xcode and Eclipse for iOS and Android.

    Edit, and thanks for the link

    I know you'll have $100 to spend, but if you want to spend it on other types of applications, Komodo Edit is an excellent free code editor.
