Hey everyone! In this post let's breeze ❄️ through some of my most used and favourite, free menu bar applications for Mac.
- Tick Tick
Let's go through them in brief.
It's better to treat these lists as projects for example, and you can add tasks in each project.
Another really good feature of this application is the notification system and synchronisation between devices. Tasks get synced between my Mac, iPad and iPhone seamlessly. Notification support is also great.
In a world to do list apps like Any do, todoist, Microsoft tasks, my favourite is Tick Tick.
P.S: I can go on and on about Tick tick. It's amazing enough to have a seperate blog post.
How many of you follow Pomodoro Technique?
My experience with this app has been really nice. When I started searching, there were so many pomo timer apps around, I was confused where to start. I started using a few and then finally stumbled upon Flow.
It's an amazing productivity hack if you are a productivity freak like me. It's extremely customisable. You can blacklist applications, set the flow time, break time and lots of other things.
This application is available on the App Store.
I often wonder why apple never put a calendar in the menubar. And that's where Itsycal comes in. It's a sweet little widget which shows you the calendar & events and synchronises with your Calender application in Mac to stay updated.
I honestly consider a Calendar to be one of the most important things that should be on the menubar. Ubuntu and Windows, both offer a calender. For me personally, this feature comes very handy. Whenever I am on call or scheduling a meeting, I simply click on the menubar icon to see the calender.
Have you ever used clipboard managers? If not, it's high time you use one. Trust me you'd love it.
Before I was aware of clipboard managers, I used to sob everytime I had multiple things to copy or wanted previously copied text on copy ring. That is when I came across Clipy. Clipy is an amazing clipboard manager for Mac which solved most of my problems mentioned earlier.
Have you ever been in that situation where your Mac has to be turned on for some download to finish ?
Have you waited in front of it like me and keep moving the cursor as soon as the screen dims down.
Amphetamine helps a lot in this situation.
It's an awesome keep-awake app created for MacOS. Amphetamine can keep your Mac, and optionally its display(s), awake through a very simple on/off switch, or automatically through easy-to-configure Triggers. Amphetamine is extremely powerful and includes advanced features for the power users, yet remains intuitive and easy-to-use for those who don't need all of the bells and whistles.
This is an amazing app which saved me so many times. When I was offering my services to ChatLeap, it was very useful. The company runs on Israel time, so managing meetings and deadlines used to get confusing for me quite often. But once I got this app, I never missed a meeting again.
Clocker is designed to help you keep track of your friends and colleagues in different time zones.
There are many other applications like RDM, Proton VPN, NTFS for Mac etc., but the ones in this list are the most popular.
