Mac me up: OS X must have apps

Magnet

In terms of window management, OS X is different to Windows and even to Ubuntu Linux (Unity, Gnome). There’re no shortcuts or mouse actions for moving windows to display corners, no shortcuts for maximising windows or for moving them between different displays. Magnet is a solution. It worths it’s $1.

iTerm2

There’s no magic pill: a default terminal can’t fit to all wonders of a software developer. Terminator or Tilix for Linux, ConEmu for Windows, iTerm2 for OS X.

Alfred

Last and actually least. Alfred is a multitool app. But some of it’s features (e.g. system-wide search) has already been implemented in OS X itself. Others like running system or shell commands personally I don’t see useful.
