Mac software I can’t live without (part 2)

(Read part one here)

Coda – Web Editor

Coda editor

I was first introduced to Coda while working at Afrigator. At first glance, it looks like just another text editor, but look under the skin and you’ll see that there’s a lot more to Coda than meets the eye. The software is fast and light (unlike Dreamweaver) and the preview feature works like a charm so that you can see what you’re doing as you work.

Being able to connect directly to sites (great for editing online newsletters) or use Subversion are just some of the other cool features that the software includes.

The software goes for $99 on the Panic website, which is a steal considering that you’d nee to shell out close to $500 for Dreamweaver.

Transmit – FTP Client

From the same guys who make Coda, Transmit is pretty close to being one of my favourite bits of software. The coolest feature is being able to mount an online location as a drive on your machine. This makes drag and drop file transfers a real breeze. I made the switch from Cyberduck to Transmit and it was a great move. Transmit is lightening fast, looks great and pretty cost effective at only $34.

You can buy Transmit from Panic for $34. Trust me – it’s worth every cent.

AppCleaner – Application uninstaller

Applcleaner for Mac

Uninstalling applications on a Mac is a breeze, but sometimes they leave some traces behind – language files, preferences, settings or log files. These can be a nightmare to find and remove completely, and more often than not I just never get around to it. Enter AppCleaner. Applcleaner is a great application for uninstalling software. It’s even better because it’s free 🙂

So, which software do you rock on your Mac?
