Hi guys… It has been 5 years since my last post on this blog! Can you believe that? So how you guys doing? Hope everything is fine. Cool!
So I decided to come back writing on this blog just because I think it is time for me to write something on it. I have changed it to a new theme (still using Genesis Framework btw), updated the permalinks structure and removed some stuffs especially the unused plugins.
Just want to share with you, this was my custom theme that I used on this blog. I designed and coded it by myself on Genesis Framework. But it does not support mobile view and I had to use plugin to achieve that. If you view the source code, it was very messy. So I decided to replace it with a new one, eleven40 theme from StudioPress.
As for the permalinks structure, currently I’m using the post name structure. Previously it was day and name. When changed it to this new structure, I have to update my .htaccess file to redirect all traffics from previous URLs to this current structure.
5 Best Mac Apps
But, what are my 5 best Mac apps that I use in 2018? Here is the list…
LaunchBar – This app is super awesome! It has saved me a lot of time! Just press the Command + Space, I can open folder/file or execute app without need to find them in the Finder or Launchpad. Since it was installed in last April, I have saved more than 1 hour of struggling to find file/folder in my Macbook. And did I mentioned it can also set my calendar direct from LaunchBar? It is a must have app! Believe me!
1Password – If you managed a lot of websites and login to many accounts, you must have this app installed in your Mac. You just need to remember only one password, and that password will be used to open the app. You can use 1Password to generate unique password (with all kind of combinations, just name it) and keep them secure and safe in the app. Your passwords will be kept encrypted and stored on the cloud. Peace of mind.
Things – I used to use OmniFocus since 3-4 years ago to keep track my todos and projects. But when Things come with its new version update this year, I fall in love with it. The interface is clean and minimalist. Although I have to tweak a bit my work flow from OmniFocus to Things, but it’s worth it. Less process + less workflow = more productivity. Not really a GTD app, but it works for me.
MindNode – When I want to write or do something that requires more thinking, I will fire up MindNode. It is basically a mind mapping app which helps me a lot in brainstorming process. The interface is simple and beautiful with all the nice colours. And I can export the mind map into image or PDF file if I want to share it to my colleagues.
Microsoft OneNote – Last but not least, Microsoft OneNote. Because Evernote start charging their users, so I searched for the alternative and I found OneNote. I use it mostly to take notes and records discussion inputs. I can create what they called it as ‘notebook’ and I can create as many pages (and sub-pages too) in it. Very useful.
I would like to mentioned here these apps (except LaunchBar) are also available on my iPhone. So if I made any changes on my Mac, that info will be automagically synced to my iPhone as well. Everything are up to date and I do not need to worry if I miss anything.
Happy with this list? Mind to share which your favourite Mac app?
