    Espresso is my best mac os app so i would offer it to a friend :D

    Currently it’s Echofon, but if I win this, it would be Espresso

  • Nick

    Where were you half a year ago Mac AppStorm? I don’t want to enter: but my favourite Mac application is a toss up between CoverSutra, Espresso and The Hit List.

  • amatanoyo

    Scrivener, I LOVE !

  • Julio Parra

    Pixelmator with no doubt!

  • Zdenek

    Socialite, no.1

  • Tom Usher

    Would probably have to be TextMate

  • Danielw

    my favourite mac app, has to be quicksilver :) too bad it isent working on Snow Leopard :(

    first post nice :)

  • kiero

    Things is the best app for now because I don’t have Espresso :P

  • Kumaja


  • Maciek Bielski


  • Luke

    I must say that Pixelmator is my fav.

  • Arthur Corenzan

    I really like Espresso, but my favorite of all time is Google Chromium! xD

    I still want this Espresso!!

    Great blog, cya!

  • Tomasz Dobrowolski

    LittleSnapper and Textmate. And propably Things – without them I would be lost.

  • Dan

    Best iPhone app ever is Tweetie 2. However the best Mac app is a little more difficult. As a coder I would be inclined to say Textmate/Coda/Expresso or something like that, but to be quite honest, the program that I use more than anything else would be CoverSutra.

    It looks good and is fast. It allows me to search my music faster than anything else and embarrasses me by putting the album art for ABBA on my desktop.

  • Kevin

    My favorite Mac App, even though it’s free, would have to be QuickSilver. I’ve even convinced a few friends to switch over after showing them what’s possible with it—it really is a badass piece of software :)

    Thanks, Blacktree!

  • Rok

    I think my fav mac app of all time is prizmo :)

    Favorite Mac app of all time would have to be Tweetie for Twitter. Absolutely love the UI and function of the app.

  • Mozgovvert

    Heh, my fav app is Things) I’m using GTD all the time, and Espresso is on the second place :3

  • Ioannis Kyvetos

    my favourite and most useful application is 1password !!

  • Caustics

    Although, I’d like to give Espresso a shot ;-)

  • agg23

    My favorite app is RapidWeaver…

  • toby


  • Fábio Morbec

    I guess my favorite is MacVim !

  • urco

  • BlackOut

    My favourite is Adium. Definitely!

  • http://http// Michael Carnell

    my Fav is Coda and The HIt List

  • Philipp

    Photoshop. Maybe not the sexiest, but definitely the most useful app.

  • Black

    My favorite is Coda

  • Fábio M. Morbec

    My favorite actually is MacVim!!

  • cabell

    Based on trying the trial of Espresso, it looks great! My favorite Mac app of all time… that’s a hard one, but for now, I think my favorite is Dropbox. It’s a great way to sync files betweeen computers, and you can sign up for free!

  • apod

    My favorite Mac app is: The Hit List

  • Daniel Groves

    My favourite program is the operating system itself. I just love how easy everything is, but if that doesn’t qualify then I will have to say that it is things. Since I got Thins I am finally starting to get on top of everything again!

  • maxt3r

    That’s Textmate

  • tobiasre

    My favorite is socialite (eventbox), I use it every day!

  • Pat O’Halloran

    My favourite app at present has to be Lightroom 2

  • SnakDada

    I think Scrivener is the best app I’ve used, and I am no writer, which says a lot

  • edirun

    Tweetie maybe the NO1

  • Abe Jellinek

    Safari. I just NEED the internet.

  • Per

    I’ve become hugely dependent on Things since since I found it. Easy to use and a beautiful interface, and I’m getting thing done! I love it :)

  • Troyenne

    Mt favourite application is that I discovered thanks to your app review.

    But I also like Tweetie.

  • Aaron Parker

    My Favorite Mac Application of all time???…

    Well there are soo many however I think that I would probably have to go with either Quicksilver or TweetDeck. I think that Quicksilver wins it overall for me though as it is a great application which really helps me to get going faster and it is soo extensible.

    Loving the Christmas Giveaways!!



  • Chris R.

    Hands down quicksilver, saves me a buckload of time and has some impressive features and an extra edge over spotlight.

  • datagutt

    Tweetie :)

  • datagutt

    My favourite is Tweetie

  • Luis Martins

    My two favorites are Coda and CSSEdit. Really looking forward to the next Espresso update, so i would like to get it now also.

  • Adam

    Favourite Mac app of ALL time??? It’s gotta be iTunes. That application has been responsible for some serious success for Apple, it’s the first app most people ever use to introduce them to the world of the Mac, and it makes our iPods, iPhones and Apple TVs (not to mention our Macs themselves) an absolute blast to use. As for third party apps? I’ll definitely go with Quicksilver. Saves me SO much time and is an absolute joy to use.

  • Matthew Lowery

    I would have to go with Snippets. It’s just so useful and so beautifully designed.

  • Laszlo Korte

    My fav macapp is textmate. It was one of the reasons for me switching from windows to mac last year.

    I would like to get an copy of Espresso.

  • Hasan Yavaş


  • Michal

    Things :)

  • Aikoimhin

    My favorite is hands down QuickSilver

    With Espresso 1.1 just around the corner this would be sweet!

  • Rodney Isemann

    Not sure I can mention a fav of all time, there’s always new and better.

    Damn, this is hard ..

    Going to plump for Tweetie for Mac, it’s just been the most stickable and I keep going back to it regardless of the other Twitter apps that come out so Tweetie for Mac it is.


  • Daniel Avrella

    I’m NOTHING without Photoshop!
    Really like Coda and Tweetie too.

  • Harry Bissett

    Actually, my favourite Mac app is Coda ;)
    But I’ve been thinking about giving Espresso a go recently.

  • Zac

    My favourite application is probably NetNewsWire, because it lets me have all of the important news from everywhere in one simple, beautiful application.

    (Of course, I couldn’t live without Photoshop, though)

  • Robin Lundgren


    Such a lovely app. It frees me from the strong hold of iTunes.
    It gives me a way of navigating through my music in a nice sleek and minimal way.

    Easily worth the 10$ it costs!

  • Simon Harvey

    I’d have to go for Things. Never get anything done without it.

  • Damian

    Hi, for me fantastic is 1Password v3

  • Phil

    it’s a close call, but measured by how much i use it, my favourite app would have to be adium.

  • Marian Friedmann

    Tweetie! :)

  • Joel Drapper

    If I had to pick one app it would definitely be Things. I don’t know what I would do without it.

  • pablarribas

    It should be iPhoto I think… how easy I was.

  • Roger Dean Oldén
  • Michael

    My favourite Mac Application is TextMate!

  • AlexK

    The “correct” answer probably would be: “Of course, my favorite Mac application is Espresso!” ;)

    Honestly though, I’d have to say until recently it was EventBox. Use it all day long, every day. Same with 1Password. Damn, now that I think about it, there is a plethora of superb Mac applications. Hard to narrow it down. I think I’ll stick with the two mentioned above.

  • Terran Siladi

    Bowtie is my favorite mac app of all time. Just the perfect ratio of funcinality and gloss to add to my desktop.

  • Dragna

    my favorite app on my mac is spotify ^^

  • Simon

    Best app evar: Quicksilvaar

  • Helvecio

    The best Mac app? 1Password

    But not an easy choice!

  • Henrik

    Alltime favorite mac app has to be Adium its the one app i dont change and the only app that dosent hardcore crashes on me, else it would be the Terminal :)

  • Sulcalibur

    I have Espresso (so please choose someone else if I win) and my fav apps are probably joint between Espresso, The Hit List and Socalite. It’s quite hard to choose just one :S

  • Ray


  • aifonit

    Quicksilver! :D

  • ekseight

    Well i’m interested in Espresso, since iWeb isn’t good for me, my favorite application? I don’t have one i use many of them, but i think iMovie is doing good job in making movie editing for everyone.

  • Max

    My fav app is Xcode because it enables me to create more fav apps for myself ;)

  • Uros

    definitely 1password :)

  • Paul

    My fav app is Tweetie I think

  • agfrg

    This may sound stupid, but my favourite Mac App is defenitively Safari.

    It is the best browser in the market, and since we are spending most of the time in the Internet it must be the best Mac App.

    My favorite app has to be photoshop CS4. I use it the most of any of my apps!

    Firefox: Simply love the extensions
    Coda/Espresso: Still can’t decide which I prefer
    Xslimmer/CleanMyMac: All the space these apps have saved me by purging unneeded code is quite immense.

  • ende

    My favourite application is Pixelmator.

  • Nikola Lazarevic

    Brush Pilot!

    Well, my favorite app for Mac is Quinn because it’s a very good Tetris.

  • Jack

    My favourite Mac Application would, really, have to be Adium. It’s such a customisable, easy-to-use application which is compatible with Microsoft Messenger, Yahoo, AIM and a lot more. It’s incredibly quick, and has a sleek interface. :)

  • jono

    Dropbox, hands down. Allows me to sync TextExpander (my 2nd favorite) snippets across multiple Macs, plus a LOT more.

    If you don’t have Dropbox:

    Download and install for the full experience of having a Dropbox folder on your desktop that syncs to the cloud allowing you to access files from any Mac – and your iPhone, they have an app for that too.

  • iKenny81

    My fav is Things

  • Ibish

    My favorite app is Pages…

  • Ubahnverleih

    FTP Client: Flow

  • steffenbew

    My comment looks a bit inappropriate, but I’m swearing on Coda. Nonetheless, I’d like to give Espresso a chance… maybe for different usecases ;)

  • Wes Crockett

    So far, my favorite mac app is Adium followed closely by MeasuringCup (I highly suggest a review of this one in the future ;) )… Btw, I could REALLY use this app… I am not so fond of text-wrangler and I am not about to spend $75-$99 on a text editor!

  • nelo

    My favourite App is Tweetie

    This is going to be hard.

    Adium. It is so functional, so useful. No other chat application on any OS is so customisable. I love being able to use MSN, FB, ICQ, and Google Talk without having four different apps running.

  • John Arnor G. Lom

    I’d have to say CSSEdit.

    Other strong contenders would be Pixelmator, Adium, Tweetie and Apple’s own Numbers…

  • Mike Staszel

    I know it’s kind of the opposite of Espresso, but Coda is my most used app on a Mac and THE reason why I can’t use any other OS.

  • Gabriel Rinaldi

    Textmate for Work and Tweetie for Social

  • Peter

    Photoshop would definitely top the list for me.

    my favorite mac app is Things…

  • Joshua

    Simple, built-in, and small, but Preview has got to be the most oft-used and fastest program on my Mac. I love how I just find new functionality in it all the time that makes me say, “Of course, why wouldn’t that feature be in it?”

  • Gabriel Rinaldi

    Tweetie for social and TextMate for work

    I really love coda but I’d love to see if Macrabbit have improved things at all.
    My favourite though, would have to be tweetie. It is perfect.

  • TheNullDevice

    My favourite app would be Quicksilver. It’s just amazing how such a little app can change my workflow so much!

  • Tylor

    My favorite application would have to be QFeeder (which I got a beta invite from here!). I have downloaded plenty of twitter clients but never really used any of them. QFeeder is the first one that I actually use! It is awesome!

  • Eric Vitiello

    XCode is currently my favorite, but Im fickle.

  • Nate Lockwood

    I guess it’s a tie between SplashID and Quicksilver. I use both constantly.

  • Eric Skram

    My favorite Mac App has to be Quicksilver. I know that I only use a fraction of what it is capable of, but it makes my life a ton easier!

  • Gregg

    I used to love Audion way more than iTunes. Or Textmate.

  • vvinston

    My favorite mac app is textmate. It’s the best texteditor :)

  • metaviewpoint

    My favorite application is Papers.
    It is the best application to organize, search and read pdfs of any sort. And it has also an iPhone version. You cannot imagine how helpful it is considering that I have a collection of over 2000 scientific articles. It is developed by

    Time Machine! I never ever have to worry about losing anything again. Takes the hard work out of backups

  • Austin Gatchell

    I’m not sure if it’s an app but Expose. I just love it!

  • Ed Wallitt

    Textmate rocks! Definitely top for me.

  • Lukas Bombach

    For me it’s Things, because it actually gets me things done!

    QuickSilver – There is no further disussion!

    QuickSilver is amazing. Start a shell/applescript. Launch Applications. Easy modify text-files. Easy navigate and open files.
    I just wish someone would help updating it. :(

  • Jaime

    My favorite Application has to be TextMate right now, though
