With 2007 almost over, now is the perfect time to reflect on the year that went through and talk about the software that stood out the most. It’s been a very good year for Mac, and the release of Leopard has really pushed developers to build exciting new versions of their software with sleeker designs and new technological advances. New innovative software have emerged and many older applications have gone through significant face lifts.
To celebrate the moment, I’ve put together a list of the 10 Mac applications that made the most impact this year. This is only my personal opinion though, so don’t hesitate to shout out if you think I’ve missed out a Mac application that deserves to be in the list.
- Coda – Because of its beautiful design and how it manages to integrate all the tools you need to develop web pages.
- Picturesque – This little app is a pleasure to use: drag and drop your image, set your effect, and you’re done!
- Delicious Library – Create beautiful digital shelves of all your CDs, books and DVDs.
- Omnifocus – One of the most hyped about Mac apps of the year, Omnifocus offers the GTD approach to tasks in a nifty interface.
- CSSEdit – Because it looks great, loads sites really quickly and makes editing CSS accessible to anyone.
- Joost – The online TV revolution is here thanks to Joost, which gives you access to hundreds of quality programs from your desktop.
- World of Warcraft – Because WoW is truly a phenomenon. The release of the new Burning Crusade expansion pack back in January was one of the biggest gaming events of the year.
- Flock – The social browser reached 1.0 this year offering up smooth integration to services like Facebook, Twitter, Flickr or YouTube.
- iWork – Mac users can now claim a solid office suite with three great applications: Numbers, Pages and Keynote.
- Pixelmator – An intuitive imaging application with loads of editing tools and layer support, Pixelmator comes in a sleek dark grey multi-windowed interface.
