Share Files Easily Between Computers With AirDrop & Two Similar Applications [Mac]

How often have you sent an email to yourself, simply to move a picture or document between computers? Often, the only obvious alternative is clear overkill, like setting up a temporary FTP server on your jailbroken iPad. For these kind of scenarios – moving small files quickly and efficiently – Mac OS X’s own AirDrop is the ideal tool for the job.

If you work at a home-based office like I do, you no doubt spend a significant amount of time getting things done on your Mac.

9 Awesome Alfred Workflows I’m Loving [Mac OSX]

Alfred is a task launcher for Mac OSX – hit a shortcut, start typing the name of a file, folder, contact, application or search term, and bam – there it is. Since version 2, the concept of workflows was introduced – essentially, user-created plugins that can extend the functionality. My mind was blown – this in an incredibly powerful app, possibly the most useful I’ve come across yet. To use workflows, you must have the PowerPack purchased for $25.

AirParrot Brings AirPlay Mirroring to Windows and Older Macs

Although AirPlay – a system that allows you to stream video and audio between AirPlay-enabled Apple devices – works great in a lot of situations, it isn’t a perfect system. Perhaps most importantly, Apple’s AirPlay system is proprietary, meaning it’s only officially implemented by Apple and thus only available on Mac OS X and iOS devices, leaving a lot of Windows-Apple crossover users out in the cold. Luckily, both of these problems are solved by AirParrot.

Mac Mail – 5 Plugins That Will Rocket Your Productivity

I have previously covered timesaving features in the latest version of Apple’s Mail client, but despite its improved user interface, search features, favorites bar and VIP folders, there are still missing features Mac power users could use to be more productive in Mail. Fortunately, there are several third-party plug-ins that enhance Mail and address some of its annoying problems or missing features.

Control Spotify on Your Mac Using Spot Remote [iOS]

With Spotify and similar music-streaming services on the rise, the run-of-the-mill stereo installation is starting to look more and more inadequate. The main problem with this setup is that if you’re sitting with friends, computer-stereo-hybrid blasting away at the other side of the room, it’s often a chore to play DJ… unless you start involving your mobile devices and an app like Spot Remote for iOS.

Be More Productive With A Powerful Clipboard Manager [Mac]

If you routinely copy and paste text and other items on your Mac and iOS devices, you will no doubt agree that Apple’s default clipboard features are extremely lacking. Both the iOS and OS X clipboards only allow you to save one clipping at a time. Each clipping you make gets overridden by a new one. As a writer, I rely on a couple of third-party clipboard managers that help me stay productive in the work that I do.

Manage Your Mac Windows Efficiently With Moom

Manage Your Mac Windows Efficiently With Moom

One of the clumsiest things to do on Mac OS X is Windows management. I don’t usually look back on my Windows years with longing, but window management has been integrated far less sloppier on Windows 7 than it has on Mac OS X. The buttons at the top of the screen sometimes seem to act illogically. But worse, moving and resizing windows has to be done manually using the mouse. This may seem like a trivial task, but believe me, it adds up.
