Here on IT articles, we are of course always looking for new programs that can turn both leisure and work – related tasks on the computer into a more simple and enjoyable pleasure – this is also the case for our sister site, Download.dk where you can both download and read reviews of all kinds of applications.
However, the best programs are often hidden in a jungle of less good ones. That’s why today we have compiled a clear list of 5 of our favorites for Apple’s Macs. Under each program we link to our sister page where you can download the program and read a review.
Paint on Windows has never been the world’s best program, but it is often excellent when you just need to quickly crop or resize an image. Since Apple has never chosen to supply its Mac machines with a similar program, we recommend Paintbrush, which is very similar in design and functionality to Microsoft’s own Paint program.
Paintbrush is free and works on almost all versions of OS X. The program has not been updated for a few years, but since it should be simple to go to, we are not interested in more features than necessary.

2. Menubar Countdown
Although a mobile phone is probably the best tool to take time with because it is always in your pocket, Menubar Countdown is a really sensible timer for the Mac. There are absolutely no superfluous functions – you just start the program, after which the countdown will run up in the menu bar at the top. Smart!
The program is completely and completely free, and if you have a Mac running OS X Leopard from 2007 or later, then you should definitely give the program a try.

Moom is a really smart program for Mac, which makes it easier to find head and tail in all the same open programs. A bit like you know it from Windows 7, you can for example finally get a program to fill the entire screen or make split screen between several. Likewise, advanced users can also set hotkeys for Moom’s many functions so that one can work more efficiently.
The full version of Moom costs 1 10, but fortunately there is a free trial version, so you can get a feel for the program in your daily life first.

4. iRed Lite
Apple sells a nice remote in Nice alu design for the Mac, but unfortunately its functionality is severely limited-in fact, it can only be used with a small handful of applications, including Apple’s own and PowerPoint. That’s why our inner geek really came to life when we heard about iRed Lite that allows you to set it up for all programs. It takes a lot of time to get a handle on it all, but it significantly increases the value of Apple’s remote control.
iRed Lite is free and works on OS X Snow Leopard onwards. Likewise, of course, it requires that you use your Apple Remote together with a MacBook, which has a built-in infrared port.

The touchpad on Apple’s laptops is nothing less amazing, and personally I haven’t used a mouse for several years. Sometimes, however, you could wish for more opportunities, and this is exactly where MagicPrefs comes into the picture. It is possible to set up touch functions exactly according to your own needs, so you can use your fingers for even more.
The program is free, and it should work on Macs with OS X Lion and later. Of course, the program also supports Apple’s accessories with touch, including Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad.

If you are thinking that we are missing your favorite program for Mac on the list, then you can of course leave a comment so that other users can also enjoy it!
