This list is mainly intended to keep track of the apps I need in case of a new device that needs a set up but it should also be useful to share with friends and family. I will divide the list into four categories; iOS, iPadOS, Mac and Windows.
* means I use the app on every platform it's available.
- Apollo for Reddit (RIP)
- The best reddit app ever created. Single handedly made Reddit the best platform ever created. Then reddit killed it.
- Also check out anything Christian Seilig makes, magician app developer.
- Microsoft To Do*
- Great, feature packed to do app. Not trying any gimmicks just a simple to do app with good multi platform support. It used to be called Wunderlist and Microsoft purchased it. I hope they won't kill it.
- My choice of password manager. Not great but good enough.
- Documents by Readdle*
- Possibly the most feature packed app I have ever used on a phone. I have no idea how is it free.
- Google Authenticator
- My choice of mobile authenticator.
- Fast & Speedcheck
- Two apps I use to check internet speed.
- Cuts photos into slideable multi pieces to share as seamless panoramas in Instagram.
- Best note taking app in my opinion. Feature packed, easy to use and great export options. What more do you want?
- Turn your iPad into a USB C monitor.
- Magazine subscription with tons of good magazines in it.
- Very powerful spotlight alternative.
- An essential download.Improves window managing significantly. My tip: get used its shortcuts for a much better experience.
- Great tool that lets you adjust brightness/volume of your monitor from your keyboard.
- Great way to see and understand storage usage, for both internal and external storage.
- Macs Fan Control
- Sometimes you just need to control the fanspeed manually. Useful when importing a lot of photos to Lightroom.
- Great way to access notes I take on my iPad.
- Brings windows style alt-tabbing to macOS.
- Great way to install, uninstall and manage multiple instances of Xcode.
- Great app to connect to servers, also available on iPad/iPhone.
- Affinity Suite
- Good alternative to some of the Adobe CC apps. Great performance on Apple Silicon.
Note that I am now using my Windows PC almost exclusively for gaming so I don't know much about what's popular nowadays.
- Incredible set of advanced tools for power users. Well developed and maintained.
- Does the same thing as GrandPerspective on macOS.
