50+ Mac Applications with Great Interface

Having used Mac for quite some time, I discover that I deeply fall in love with smooth and sleek interface offered by most of Mac built-in applications.

And the good news is, there are many third-party applications out there developed with more or less the same design standard as those built-in Mac apps. More than fifty sample screenshots of beautiful Mac applications are ready to amaze you after the jump.

Mac Applications for Tagging Files

Often, we have plenty of important working stuffs stored on our Mac. Without proper management on those files, it will be difficult for us to search and get back to our previous work files.

New Design. The White UsingMac

After several months of black-theme UsingMac, we’ve decided to transform into white-theme design. Perhaps, some of you might feel surprised by this sudden change, but we hope that you feel comfortable with our new design. Why Do We Choose White?

Fave Mac App 3. Path Finder 5

Path Finder is an award-winning file browser and management application for Mac OS X.
This is achieved by adding on more useful features to the familiar user interface of Finder.

There are several features that I like to use while using Path Finder:

  1. Multiple Tabs Browsing
    Sometimes we might need to open multiple Finder window to drag-drop or browse around directories. Using Path Finder, we can combine all these opened windows into just a single window with multiple tabs.
  2. Temporary Stack
    Although the drag-drop technique has become my habit in boosting my productivity in handling files. Path Finder enhances this experience by adding temporary stack where we can have a temporary place for drag-drop process.
  3. Dual Pane File Browsing
    Often, we need to view different folders side by side. And the good news is, Path Finder provides the dual pane browsing ability for us. This feature of Path Finder is just too good to be missed.
  4. Quick Preview
    By default, if we want to show information of certain item on Finder, we will reveal the Get Info pane by hitting keystrokes Cmd-Opt-I.
    However in Path Finder, we can just toggle on Preview Mode and we can have all important information the item has.
  5. Recent Applications
    Path Finder can also help us keeping track of up to 50 recent applications.

Even though it’s quite pricey for an application, I still recommend using Path Finder. Path Finder really helps a lot in enhancing your Mac experience. For your information, there is 30-day trial provided for this application.

Tweak Screencapture Behavior

Normally, we will use keystrokes Cmd-Shift-3 or Cmd-Shift-4 to take snapshot with Mac
default screencapture utility. And new in Snow Leopard, we will end up having a PNG
image file automatically stored inside our Desktop folder with the name Screen shot … .

Those behaviors mentioned above are the default ones. We can easily change those with
simple command lines.
