Five Mac Apps Everyone Should be Using in 2019

Scrolling through the more than two million apps available on the Apple App Store is obviously an impossible task. Typically, you get through the top five to 10 in each category and call it a day. Here's the thing, by doing only that, and not digging a little deeper, you could be missing out on some amazing, and frankly essential, apps. So, rather than leave it up to you to find the best apps in a sea of millions, we’ve gone ahead and put together a list of the top Mac apps that everyone should be using in 2019.


While it may not be a cutting-edge game or a social networking platform, using a Mac theft protection app such as the Hidden app is essential. The Hidden app is meant to give you peace of mind when it comes to your Apple devices. Statistics show that millions of Apple devices are stolen on a yearly basis, which also means you lose all the data you had stored on your Mac. It also means that your information can get into the wrong hands.

Hidden features location tracking so you can figure out where your device is. It will allow you to remotely lock your Mac with a password, view a key log, take secret screenshots to see who is using the device, conduct a remote wipe of the hard drive, and more.


If you're the type that has a hard time getting things done, prioritizing tasks, and remembering what it is that you need to do, then the Todoist app is an absolute must for your Mac. The app is an organizational and note-taking app that will make it easy for you to stay on top of all your tasks and projects. It can be used for work as well as your personal life and can be used on all your iOS devices, not just your Mac.

If you find that the standard offering isn't quite cutting it, you can pay the $29 yearly fee which unlocks all kinds of extra features and functionality.


Not everyone enjoys typing, but sometimes there's just no way around it - unless you have the Otter app. This app is a note-taking app for your Mac but what makes it unique is the fact it uses voice recognition. That's right, all you have to do is speak and it will transcribe everything you're saying. The software is extremely intelligent and high-tech, which means you'll be getting accurate transcribing.


Here's a really unique app that is meant specifically for those who do a lot of online shopping. The problem with online shopping at various places is that then you have a lot of shipping/delivery information to keep track of. Deliveries works by supplying all the information from dozens of different shipping services in one spot. Everything will appear on your dashboard so you can track each and every package in a central location.


While this app isn't new, it's certainly an incredibly useful one to download on your Mac. Skype gives you the ability to engage in video or voice chats with friends and family from anywhere in the world. There is also a real-time instant messaging feature if you'd prefer. Skype can be used at home or even for work purposes, as many companies now host meetings through the platform.

You Mac Is Well-Stocked with These Offerings

By making sure you download these apps onto your Mac, you'll be sure to give yourself all kinds of added functionality and features, making your computer that much more powerful.
