Essential Mac Software
BBEdit – essential text editor
Sublime Text – another editor. Multi-platform, flexible, and just awesome.
Transmit – FTP software. I Recently updated to Transmit 4 and it is brilliant.
Cornerstone – A great Mac client app for Subversion.
Tower – Mac Git client. I haven’t personally used this.
Billings – invoicing and time tracking. They recently canned the basic app and you have to get the hosted or self-hosted Billings Pro.
Scrivener – good for larger writing projects.
iWork – Pages and Numbers. I use these every day.
Google Content Removal Tool – I have had occasion to use this recently!
MediaTemple – great hosting. I’d recommend the managed or developer dv products for anyone hosting more than a couple of web sites.
BlueHost – If you’re just getting started with Web Hosting or just hosting one or two sites, BlueHost are a good option.
