Tools that I use
October 25, 2021

Like Spotlight but faster and better. Has a smarter calculator, including currency conversions like 20 gbp in isk.

TablePlus logo

My SQL GUI of choice, has a very native and fast MacOS UI, supports libSQL.

Cleanshot app logo

Augments the screenshot utilities on macOS with hosting, copying, better annotations, GIF and MP4, custom domains and more and more. Excellent support.


I like Figma as much as the next person, but nothing beats the speed and native feel of macOS apps.

Rectangle app logo

Window and monitor management. Map keyboard shortcuts to resize and move windows around, between displays etc.

Plex app logo

I'm a bit of a media server geek. Downloading and organizing media has always been a hobby of mine. Today I have a mac mini set up with container orchestration from klutchell/mediaserver.

iCloud Passwords
iCloud Passwords

Apple has finally added security codes to passwords management. This means I no longer need 1Password and I have one more thing in the iCloud toolchain that just syncs across devices without secondary apps. Password management is something that to me, belongs in the OS layer.

Fastmail logo

Fastmail used to be good just because it was a nice way to eject out of the Gmail ecosystem. Today it is not only an alternative to Gmail but a better app, better search and better designed product. Yeah, you pay a fee, but for email that makes sense.

Kitty logo

Kitty is a highly configurable GPU accelerated terminal emulator that has a good build for macOS. I use it with the fish shell and Starship. The icon displayed here on the right is an alternative app icon found here.
