    Hello everyone,

    I am Abhishek from India. I am a longtime windows user, and stil have a desktop pc.

    Recently sold my samsung laptop and bought a 13" Macbook air 128gb 4gb ram 2014
    I am completely new to mac, though I have an iphone for years(now iphone 5)

    Can someone please tell me some great apps and softwares which can make the best out of my macbook and iphone.

    also i dont need coding softwares and all
    no pro softwares, just light ones but good.

    Thanks.

    Abhishek, this first thing I would get for your Macbook Air is Homebrew:

    http://brew.sh

    Homebrew will permit you to install many, many useful software packages from:

    http://braumeister.org

    You probably have Pages, Numbers, and Keynote, so other software depends on your needs. Same with iPhone apps. Good luck!

    To do what exactly? Your question is pretty vague.

    AppStore has user rated apps in each category. It's a good place to start your research. You'll find the AppStore in Macintosh > Applications if it isn't already on the Dock.
