In the past it was necessary to visit either individual websites for the developers of the software to find your free stuff. Or there were websites where there would be lists of free applications you could download. Now it has become more convenient with the introduction of the Apple App Store or the Mac App Store. We have one place where we can go to, to find a huge supply of free downloads for Mac computer users.

If you wanted to download free photo editor applications, no problem, there are plenty to choose from.

I particularly like the Mac get things done software called Wunderlist, which is free. Then I also have an application called Alfred which I use as a Mac program launcher, very useful indeed. I use the screen capture application called Skitch on a daily basis and I would be lost without it. I like to use the paid application Byword or Writeroom for writing and editing text, but there is a free text editor called Textwrangler, which I would recommend if you don’t want to spend any money. NVAlt is a great text editor.

Free downloads for Mac are addictive
Because it is so easy to get your hands on these [free downloads for Mac], is it any wonder that you download so many of these applications to your Apple computer. Some of these applications that you download you will find indispensable and continue using them on a daily basis. Then there will be others that you might only use for a few minutes and will never use again. These applications could quickly stack up, filling up valuable hard disk space. If this happens to you and your Mac computer, then I suggest that once every month or so, you have a little bit of a clear out.
