Updating Mac OS X Applications List

A couple of friends asked for this recently, and I had not updated in a while – so I made the list into a page and updated it, and it is available at:

http://blog.scottnolan.org/essential-mac-os-x-applications/

I’ll take suggestions and add them once I figure them out.

    Thanks for the list, Scott! I’m planning on trying DbVisualizer right away!

    Over this way, “PictureSync” (automatic iPhoto->Flickr upload), “Fugu” (Graphical SSH/SFTP file transfer), and Handbrake (DVD library -> AppleTV converter) are indispensable. Also, if you’ve never messed with it, Oracle SQL Developer is really nifty.

    Regards,
    Brian

    I will second the rec on Synergy. I couldn’t live w/o that application.

    Thanks for the suggestions Brian, I will add them to the list.
    I personally don’t use Flickr (at least not yet), but I’ll list it for others.
    My wife raves about Handbrake and I benefit from it even though I don’t use it myself.
    I am such an old luddite UNIX geek that I do ssh/scp by command and have not bothered with Fugu… but others recommend it as well.

    Oracle SQL Developer? Hmmm… may check that out.

    Kevin, agreed. Synergy is really tough to live without once you’ve used it… only useful for folks with multiple computers (or a laptop and their AppleTV/MythTV); but it has become essential software.

    I have a how to set up Synergy over ssh tunnels page for people using Windows:

    It is pretty easy to run over ssh tunnels for Linux/UNIX/Mac OS X.
