Essential Apps & Tweaks For Your Mac

Honestly, MacOS is the perfect experience out of the box – but there are some changes you can make that can improve your already perfect experience.

Vanilla
Allows you to tidy up your menu bar to remove any apps that you don’t need to interact with.

Magnet
Magnet adds Windows snapping to MacOS, that’s literally it. Life saver.

MalwareBytes
Your Mac is not virus protected in any way, despite what Apple want you to believe. It’s likely your Mac has a very fast drive, so download MalwareBytes are run tests infrequently – they’ll probably be done before you know it.

Dock Spacers
This is super easy to do, and can take your dock from being an absolute mess to a fantastic tool.
Simply open terminal and enter the below command – your Finder should restart and then you’ll have a transparent space on your dock – drag it to move it around wherever you want. I have 2 in my dock, but you can add as many as you like by running the command again.

defaults write com.apple.dock persistent-apps -array-add '{tile-data={}; tile-type="spacer-tile";}
killall Dock
