    Hi,

    I haven't download anything on my laptop at all aside from skype.
    I would like to know what are the most useful apps for someone who's into trimming sizes of music, pictures and files?

    I listen and download a lot of music and upload a lot of pictures.

    Other than those apps what are the most useful apps everyone uses here?

    My background is: I'm not in college yet but I am not sure where to look or what apps are out there. I need a lot of opinions.

    I heard about ONYX, what is that? Is that necessary to have? Tell me what i need. I have a 15" i5 Macbook Pro 2010 mid. 2.4.ghz. 4GB. :)

    We have the exact same laptop - whoo hoo.

    Anyways, I'd suggest Chrome if you don't have it yet (In my opinion a vastly superior internet browser)

    And Caffeine - it prevents your laptop from dimming when you're not touching the trackpad (like if you're watching a video, or reading something for awhile)

    Probably my two most used apps. Oh and Spotify is pretty cool if you can get in.

    I wasn't really asking what app is for me.

    I guess I was asking what everyone uses. And I'll pick my options from there :)
