6 must-have Mac utilities

One of the perks of using a laptop or desktop, instead of a tablet, is that you can customize your workflow. Utilities make your computer less annoying and customized to you. In this episode of Processor, Dieter demos some of his favorite MacOS utilities.

Things I hate most.
People who put tons of stickers on their macbook

Irfan Chaudhry says:

check out PopClip – love it!

Jan Horák says:

Oh man this Toothfairy utility is so awesome! As mentioned in the video, it saves one click but this one click makes such a big difference. Thanks for this tip! 🙂

Derek Witt says:

For a two-stop shop utility for window tiling, I like Spectacle. It lets me assign keystrokes and let’s me title windows similar to Windows itself. I use Command-Option-F for full screen (with dock and menu visible) and Command-Option-Left/Right arrow.

This makes window tiling so much better and similar to Windows (since I have to use Windows frequently too).

Yashowardhan Singh says:

Get Dieter to make more videos like these!

Nick Stricklin says:

I just don’t think I can trust another verge video.

Vinícius Peluqui says:

You want customization? Get Linux.

Michael says:

One thing I don’t like about macOS is that a lot of these utilities that do a small thing, but are super useful more often than not seem to cost money. On Windows, it seems like finding these kinds of utilities, they are almost always free.

I use both OS, and I prefer macOS for work and Windows for general usage.

Edit: just want to point out something too, why the hell isn’t the last utility built into the OS? I seriously don’t get that.

Natasha Ho says:

It just sounds like you need Linux haha

Eric Balgley says:

Can you recommend a clipboard history util for Mac?

Massimo Baita says:

Thank You very much, Dieter!

Dattucha says:

All your favorite utilities are pretty damn USELESS

Burhan Vizteck says:

I bought the ToothFairy, though this functionality should’ve been provided by Apple.

Jeremy JMIAH Williamson says:

The utilities should be listed individually in the video description and actually put them on the web-page you provide a link for, because Im not seeing ANYTHING on your website link.

Rahil says:

10 quid to move Windows, something I can already do …

Guilherme Teixeira says:

Seems like someone might be happy if he is introduced to Linux Mint with Cinnamon, or Manjaro Linux w/ KDE, Openbox or i3wm.

Mike Lubinets says:

Try some Linux distribution. Amounts of customization available there will blow your head 🙂

jade honey says:

Ivan Sakal says:

Dongle, dongle, dongle umm a dongle and a dongle.

Herb Crowley says:

Sukas Schneider says:

sooo U are telling me that you wanna save “one click” and then you’re adding an utility which hides all icons so you have to click one more time ? that logic

Tyler Winchester says:

Dude your posture @1:50 is gonna kill your neck and back.

groovdafied says:

Magnet for os x. It replicates the auto window placement that is in Windows 7 and 10.

Loqman Kammreiter says:

AppleScript 🙂

Herb Crowley says:

Henry Esparza says:

Trying to make it like win 10. They just need to make OS X better out the box.

Hewhomustnotbenamed says:

Emery Vilament says:
