I know this is an older thread, but rather than make something new I figured I would add to this list.

Anyways, as I am sure most people have seen, Google Material Cards are just about everywhere. I use material design on just about everything because I am part retarded when it comes to design. I came across this app/container/content organizer app that just came out and I have been using it for a few weeks.
Site - https://hyperrr.co/
Its a desktop/tv/mobile app for iOS devices as of now that basically makes it super simple to create little mini collections of things and share it to the web. I have been using these "cards" for a ton of things.

Such as creating a stack for the site I am working on and exporting all my social media accounts, profile pictures, listing url, and comments so I can leave notes for what needs to be done. It takes a little setting up but it really is cool so far. They are also embeddable, so you can create views and add them to wordpress sites, web apps or whatever. Also they are shareable, so you can create group stacks with polls and such to create user generated content.
Oh yeah they make pretty dope pumper sites too :wink:

Keep in mind this is still in early beta, so be gentle if you do use it.

Magnet is great.

Also iTerm is good.

Homebrew.

Docker.

Sequel Pro.

Postman.

Sitesucker.

Mutlilogin.

Alfred.

One of the big reasons I run OSX is the terminal. I've tried developing on Windows and it's a mess (might have changed, not sure). But on OSX it's so easy to rsync files, run ssh etc.

Better Snap Tool rocks. I'm using it like this:



Where you drag a window into one of the bolded boxes with words in it and it snaps out to the matching color-coded region. You can design all of this is any way you want, down to the pixel. I have it color-coded on my screen like that too. It's an amazing piece of software for like $3 tops if I recall.

Another one I grabbed that I've been happy with is Be Focused Pro. The Pro version lets you sync between iPad, iPhone, and Mac plus gets rid of banner ads they have on it. For $5 it was worth doing that. You can export your data on the Pro version too. It's a nice Pomodoro Timer, basically, with a lot of enhancements so you can really track where your time is going and pull up graphs over time and check patterns for when you start to drag ass.

For iPad's and now even newer iPhones, the Procreate app will change your life:

It'll turn you into your own design hero. I haven't been this excited about an app in quite awhile. It makes it so easy to quickly sketch out designs, slap some color and life into them, and end up with some fairly professional looking creative.
