There are too many Mac applications readily available which, either directly or indirectly, confuse most Mac users, making them hard to find the best application. On the other side, most application developers also feel really itch-scratching to think of fresh and unique application.
To my surprise, some developers have amazed me with their applications that came out different than others, such as application to set different Docks on different Spaces, to set different wallpaper on different Spaces, to bring you to cleaning room, and many other creative yet useful functionality.
There are many of them, but here I will mention some that I am currently using.
DockSpaces, Dock Extensions
Using Dock Spaces, you can create up to 10 distinct Docks which are ready to be triggered and changed. If you’re currently not used to using one of Mac application launchers, you would love this Dock expansion application.
Deeper, Reveal Hidden Preferences
Recalling the days of tweaking, Mac geeks come out with killer Terminal tweaks, some are very useful, some are plain amazing. However, many are afraid of corrupting their system files during tweaking and choose not to tweak their Macs.
Camouflage, Desktop Icons Hiding
Most Mac users are troubled by endless clutters on their Desktop, like me, the more I tried to clean up my Desktop, the messier my Desktop became.
Hyperspaces, Different Wallpapers on Different Spaces
With Hyperspace, you can customize every bit of your Spaces with different desktop pictures, naming on each space or even hotkeys. And it’s fairly easy to do that.
Hyperspace is a an application with $12.95 price tag but without paying any single pennies, you have the chance to use trial version, which enables you to play around with customization up to 2 Spaces. [Hyperspaces via Smoking Apples]
Omnidea Rulers, Ruler for Everyone
Having problem with measuring certain part of the screen, often for me to use built-in Mac OS X snapshot ruler which is quite troublesome (and a single careless will create accidental snap).
MacLoc, Logout without Closing Applications
With a very different behavior than usual Mac log out, MacLoc won’t close all of your applications while logging you out from the system. With this, you will be able to protect your valuable data whenever you want to walk out. [MacLoc via 100 Free Applications]
Keyboard Cleaner, Clean Your MacBook with No Hesitation
Whenever it’s time to clean our laptop, it’s require that we shut down our Mac to avoid unwanted keystrokes being triggered. Come to think of this, it’s such a hassle to do this all the time.
Keyboard Cleaner should help you clean out all the troubles: it will lock you out the screen, enabling you to clean out your MacBook without worrying on accidentally triggering undesired keystrokes; Only Command-Q is accepted, i.e. to bring you out of the cleaning state.

OmniDazzle, Mouse Trail Plugins
Having mouse track without trails, I feel a bit losing to those Windows users. In the case of using large display, mouse trail will also be a great help to find your mouse.
Folks at OmniGroup made an impressive plugin for your mouse which enables your mouse to have trails, such as Pixie Dust, Footprints and Flashlight. But be careful, excessive use of this will eat up your productivity. [OmniDazzle via Mac OS X Hints]
