I thought I would compile a quick list of some awesome tools/apps for the MBP. I am new to notebooks and would have loved to have had these suggestions right away. Better Touch Tool - Allows you to create custom multi-touch gestures for specific programs. Also has window snapping, one of the few things Windows did right. http://blog.boastr.net/?page_id=1722 Facebook Notifications - If you are a facebook junkie you should get this at least until Digsby comes out on OS X. It will notify you when you have new notifications. This one is not MBP specific, but still awesome. http://www.facebook.com/notifier DropBox - 2 GB of free online storage synced between all your devices. Amazing. This one is not MBP specific, but still awesome. http://www.dropbox.com Coconut Battery - Monitor battery life, performance and health. http://www.coconut-flavour.com/coconutbattery/ GPUInfo Menu - Lets you know which GPU is in use and allows you to set it so only your integrated GPU is used when your battery is powering your MBP, conserving power. Can't seem to find the link. Please post if you know where you can download this one. SMC Fan Control - I use this one mostly for monitoring my fan speed and I use Fan Control for actually controlling my fan speed. But his program can be used as the main fan controller. It will allow you to set certain fan levels and switch to them at will. This one is not MBP specific, but still awesome. http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/23049/smcfancontrol FanControl - This is a more automated fan controller.You can set a temperature range and your fans will adjust to stay within that range. This one is not MBP specific, but still awesome. http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/23137/fan-control iStat Pro - A widget that allows you to monitor temperatures, network usage, fan speeds, disk space, CPU and RAM usage and a few more things. http://www.islayer.com/apps/istatpro/ I would love to see what you all have to add to the list and how you use the apps.
