    Hi there!

    Although Ive been using OSX for quite a long time I only have a few additional (small) application that somehow add functionality, optics (or whatever) ...

    I believe it is difficult to get well known as a small company that often create amazing pieces of software... so, what add-ons re u using? I dont mean additional application like Office or the Adobe Suite?

    Maybe to start of:

    - Better Touch Tool - window snapping
    - hostr - fast image sharing
    - caffein - disable sleep mode
    - beamer - stream every video you want on apple tv

    I'd recommend Flux, which helps using your Mac at night.

    I'd also recommend gfxcardstatus if you have a 15" rMBP with a discrete GPU.
