Get Mac Apps getmacapps.com
If you’ve ever tried to set up a new Mac from scratch, you know that it’s challenging to install all of the platform’s essential apps one at a time. Get Mac Apps has decided to step in and take care of that issue with its website, getmacapps.com (Free). As of press time, it has 37 great apps from a variety of developers listed; you simply pick the ones you want, and the site walks you right through a super simple installation process.
There are seven different categories of software on the site: browsers, productivity, messaging, media, file transfer, development, and utilities. Once you click on the individual apps that you want, you click a big “Install These!” button at the bottom of the page, and the site generates some code for you to paste into Terminal. Run the code, and boom, all of the apps get installed. Make sure to show this one to your new Mac-using friends.
