    After much MS Vista pain, (MS Vista is the AntiChrist by the way), I am a new Mac Owner here this week.

    I have found replacements for most of my software on the Mac Platform and I would like some advice on specific programs I use in Windows and if a Mac equivalent/like program exists:

    SnagIt 8: Screen Shot tool (www.techsmith.com)

    Microsoft Streets and Trips 2008. I travel alot and need a mapping software.

    Expensable 7.5 Expense software (www.expensable.com)

    AllWeb menus Pro 5 (http://www.likno.com/allwebmenusinfo.html)

    CardScan Executive (www.cardscan.com)

    Maximizer CRM 10 Entrepreneur Edition Contact Manager (http://www.maximizer.com/solutions/maxcm/)

    AddressGrabber Business
    (http://www.egrabber.com/addressgrabberbusiness/index.html)


    Thanks a bunch for all of your responses in advance!
    Tom

    Snagit is an easy one. Under Applications->Utilties there is a screen grab tool.

    I use google maps for travel.

    I would say maybe Quicken for expense software

    For the Web Menu software, I would have to sound like a Linux user and say Learn HTML CSS and Javascript... It really isn't that hard. And once you make yourself a nice template for your design you can reuse it.

    The addres book for content manager

    Address Grabber this features is built in to Mail. Where it finds an address and put it into contacts...


    It is quite possible those weren't the solutions you were looking for, for all of them. But for some of them they mey help...

    You get Parallels or VMWare and install windows XP in it and run your Windows Only apps on you mac when you need them. XP runs rather well in these systems. Vista runs really slow though.

    I think Jello got them all pretty well, but...Between Grab and the ability to press cmd+shift+3 for a full-screen shot, or cmd+shift+4 to pick your own square of the screen to take a pic of, you may be pretty much covered...but your uses might be different.
