Chapter in this post:
We met you once last month 5 app recommendations for June 2021 given along the way. We want to continue that in July. If we have already presented one or more of the apps, please excuse the duplication. But we don't want to let recommended software for the Apple Mac pass by new readers;) If you always want to stay up-to-date, then we recommend you - regardless of whether you are a regular reader or a newcomer - the various ways to stay up to date : the Sir Apfelot newsletter, which Sir Apfelot App and I baked the Sir Apfelot Forum. So, now to the programs ...
QuickLook is a good way to quickly display the contents of a file without having to open the program that is actually required for it. Simply select a file on the Apple Mac and then press the space bar. The QuickLook window will appear, showing you a preview of text, images, videos or other files. But not all file formats are natively supported. For example, if you want to open an .avi video, a .webm video or data with the extensions .asf, .flv, .mkv, .rm or .wmf, then you need QLVideo. The free software acts as an extension for macOS QuickLook and helps you to quickly view the named file formats.
PhotoMill, which means something like photo mill, helps to process several photos at once. Batch photo editing can be used to convert the file format, resize the photos, change or delete metadata, rename the photos, and so on. If you want to use the images for the web, you can use PhotoMill to watermark them all at the same time. So if you want to make your picture collection smaller, add graphics to your website or change several files at the same time for any other reason, this software can help you for € 10,99. Big plus: No data is collected.
As the name suggests, Vectornator is a design app that you can use to create vector graphics. The extensive, smooth and clearly designed software is not only rich in functions, but also completely free of charge. If you want to create graphics on the go, you don't necessarily have to take your MacBook with you thanks to Vectornator. Because in addition to macOS on the Mac, Vectornator is also available for iOS on the iPhone and iPadOS on the iPad. When used in iMessage, the app provides you with new stickers. So if you want to create art, illustrate something or simply get a taste of the design world for free, then take a look at this software.
Encrypting files and then moving them to the cloud as a password-protected archive - this is a secure way of outsourcing data. But how should you encrypt the files and folders that you want to protect from strangers? For example, with the MacPaw Encrypto app, which is super simple! Simply drag files onto the program window, set a password and specify where the encrypted file versions should be saved. If you have your cloud service mounted as a drive, you can save the data provided with a password directly there. And the whole thing is also completely free! Tip: MacPaw also offers SetApp an inexpensive app subscription with over 200 full versions.
GoodTask is a comprehensive app for reminders, to-do lists and tasks. You can adapt them to your individual conditions of use and use them in both light and dark mode. The GoodTask app is much more extensive than the reminders app from Apple. However, it can also be used or synchronized with the calendar on macOS, iOS and iPadOS. You can also access them not only on the Apple Mac, but also from the iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch. You can find an extensive list of all functions of the software in the App Store, where you can download it for a proud € 43,99.
Like last month, we would like to briefly introduce you to SetApp from MacPaw. SetApp is a software subscription that brings you over 200 Mac apps in the full version for the monthly price of only $ 9,99 on your computer. The programs manage completely without advertising and are also provided with all the latest updates. The package includes programs from the categories creativity, lifestyle, education, maintenance, developer tools, task management, writing and blogging, finance and a few more. Check it out, maybe there is exactly the right offer for you;)
