Good late evening,

Does anybody know useful apps out there I can use? I am a new macbook Pro user. I've spoken to a quite a few nice people out here. I apologize for the dumb questions and I hope I'm not at the wrong place in asking this type of questions. If so, please do guide me in the right forum direction, thanks.

I use iStat Menus, Flux, Little Snitch, BetterTouchTool, VLC Player and Parallels Desktop to name a few you may or may not have heard of.
Play around with OSX's preferences a bit, first thing I do to a new Mac when someone gets one is enable tap to click under :apple:(top left corner)>System Prefs>Trackpad...I don't see why that isn't on by default. Other than that..see what works best for you.

I have no idea how a mac works. I'm still playing around with it. All I know is I like downloading music & movies. What is out there?
Piracy is not condoned on this forum, so you'll get no help in this matter.

Apart from that, a Mac really isn't very different from a PC, it is able to perform all the same tasks.
