Top 10

Whenever I set up a new Mac, these are the first apps I install. While I can use a Mac without them, I am not nearly as productive. A good productivity app should reduce friction and amplify good habits, and all of these meet those criteria.


#1: Dropbox – While you could argue that isn’t really an app (more of a service), Dropbox is essential for how we work at Asian Efficiency.
