It started with [this post on Lifehacker] and a number of [other] [bloggers] have put up their own [posts] on what apps they bought in the past year and what they plan to buy in 2007. So, I decided that I should join in the fun and list down some of the apps I bought this year.
As I was compiling this list, I was quite surprised that I actually bought quite a lot of software in 2006. So, here’s my list of software in chronological order of purchases.
+ [Path Finder] – The Finder replacement!!! Tried going back to using just Finder when I did a re-install of my Powerbook after getting the logic board replaced, but I was too used to the many conveniences and shortcuts that Path Finder provided.
+ [iClip] (through MacZot!) – Very useful tool for copying and pasting. I have also created a bin that stores all the useful code that I often re-use while blogging.
+ [TransType Pro] – Bought this because I had a lot of free fonts that I downloaded when I was using Windows but had problems loading on my PowerBook.
+ [TinkerTool System] – An additional maintenance tool I bought which I run regularly together with [Cocktail].
+ [AppZapper] (through MacZot!) – Wonderful uninstaller for Mac OS X. Although applications are easily uninstall in Macs by just dragging the application to the trash bin, the applications might have left behind preferences and other files. AppZapper removes everything that is linked to the application.
+ [SubEthaEdit] (through MacZot!) – A collaborative text editor though I haven’t used it much. But then again, I was given a free registration as part of the MacZot! promotion with Coding Monkeys.
+ [FlickrExport for iPhoto] – An iPhoto plugin that allows you to upload photos directly within iPhoto to Flickr.
+ [Disco] (through MacZot!) – An interesting app that has smoke animations as it burns your data or photos onto either CDs or DVDs.
+ [VisualHub] – A very useful video converter that allows you to convert videos from and to most formats, including iPod, WMV, PSP, AVI and Flash. I use it to convert Flash videos from Google Video and YouTube to iPod capable format to upload into my iPod.
+ [Koingo Bundle] (through MacZot!) – All the applications produced by Koingo Software though I found only Alarm Clock Pro, Data Guardian useful and Librarian Pro useful.
+ [MailTags 2.0] – A plugin for Mail.app that allows for tagging and setting priorities to your email and also to assign project titles to the emails for easy sorting.
+ [CSSEdit 2] – Bought this visual CSS editor as I foresee that I’ll be doing a little bit more of coding this year given there are plans to migrate MPOW blog’s to WordPress. And also the things I plan to do with my own blogs.
## Plan to Purchase This Year
+ [Leopard], [iWork] 07 and [iLife] 07 – Whenever it is released by Steve Jobs
+ Adobe Creative Suite 3
Looking forward to what 2007 holds for Mac software.
