    Thanks.

    Don't feel sorry.

    March 2008 had you asked me what my Top 10 applications lists would entail it would look different than March 2009.

    I'm not really a big fan of searching through old lists because I find new software that makes the A list every month is seems. For instance my Top 10 right now would be.

    In no particular order.

    1. Pages. Pretty much everything I personally need in a Word Porcessor.
    2. NetNewsWire- Everyday all day
    3. Adium...not a big chatter but this encompasses all my needs
    4. Pixelmator - Photoshop for the rest of us
    5. VectorDesigner - just starting to dabble with vector apps
    6. Wire Tap Studio - Very handy and "just" made the list
    7. Movist - rough around the edges but handles wmv formats easily.
    8. Espionage - finally password protection
    9. Hazel- I'm relying on it everyday
    10. Default Folder X- Open/Save functionality. I love it.

    A year ago I wasn't even using half these apps. Next year there will be new entries as there are plenty of good apps in the "batter's box"

    The best thing is to do a search and if some months have gone by since the last thread you make another one and put the date in the title.

    Here's an idea: how about we start a monthly list for your favorite or most used apps? I know mine change a lot, so a top ten per month would not only be fun to browse, but very interesting and can hopefully help many people find new software.

    I agree that sounds good. because they change so often and alot of people want to keep up.

    We should title them Top Ten Mac Apps 4/1/2009 I know it will be alot of posts, but it would be easier for alot of people. What do you guys think? Also make only ONE person posting them, so 10 different people dont do it.

    add transmission to that list for sure. Unlike most I use it for LEGAL purposes (live music distribution from bands that allow taping), but it's one of the best BitTorrent clients out there.

    FreeWay Pro is also a neat easy to use, more fully featured (than iweb) web design app out there.

    I agree with one person posting them. Let's try and get the attention of a moderator and pitch this idea to them, hopefully the MacRumors community will readily adopt this proposition.

    If anyone is interested, I started a thread about monthly top app threads in the feedback forum, located here.
