My 3 picks from Apple’s Best Mac Apps of 2012

Apple released its list of ‘Best Mac Apps of 2012’ and I thought it would be interesting to share my favorites. There are three that stick out to me as most deserving.


If you use Twitter, this is the only Mac app I would recommend. The others aren’t poorly made, but they aren’t made as well as this app. I realize it seems expensive when you have been indoctrinated by iOS and Android app prices. It is by far my most used Mac app, and well worth every penny.
