After the individual recommendations, you will also find a reference to a cheap app subscription with over 230 full versions for the Mac as well as a list of the previous app recommendations since June 2021. So if you don't find what you are looking for in the following list, just take a look Take a look at the past articles with app recommendations for the Mac, the iMac and the MacBook.

1. Alt Tab

You can see which apps are active under macOS with the key combination Command + Tab ( Smoking + Smoking), but there is no information about their interface or the displayed content. For example, the Safari icon is displayed, but not the open web page. Above all, users who switch from Windows to macOS may miss this convenience of the displayed window content in the quick view of open apps. And here comes Alt Tab into play. Because the AltTab app ensures that the open app windows are displayed with their contents when the key combination mentioned above is pressed. So you can see quickly and easily which folder in the Finder is open, which webpage is displayed in Safari, which Page document you are working on, etc. It is free to download via GitHub.

If you often switch between light and dark mode and want to use individual apps in this mode and in that mode, then this is it NightOwl the right Mac tool for you. The NightOwl app is an icon in the macOS menu bar and not only lets you create schedules for changing display modes, but also assigns light and dark modes to installed apps individually. This makes it possible to use one app with a light theme while the other app with a dark theme is open. And the best thing about it: the NightOwl app is free. You can find more details, screenshots and the download on the developer's website.

3. Gesting Timer

Today we are mainly talking about tools that can make it easier for you to work on the Mac, iMac and MacBook. That actually fits quite well, because the WWDC22 is still running to this day (here everything about the keynote from Monday). Another small app that can help you work efficiently is gestimer. The Gestimer App sits down as a timer symbol in the menu bar and creates a timer of the desired length by dragging with the mouse pointer. To do this, simply hold down the symbol with the left mouse button and then drag the mouse down. You will be shown the length of the timer and the time at its end. So you can not only mark out certain lengths of time, but also work towards exact times. In the App Store, the one-off payment is 3,99 euros.
