    PROS: Easy to install and use. Detects all monitor alterations quickly. Works with multiple-monitor setups. Preset customizations are easy.
    CONS: Windows reveal full brightness when switching spaces. Menu bar interface looks jumbled. Dark mode could act weird. Requires a 64-bit computer.
  9. PROS: This application will display on all desktops. The transparency can be adjusted. The current date will be displayed alongside the time. Highly realistic displays.
    CONS: The clock can only be moved after a double click. Some icons are more detailed than others. Certain users wish that more data could be displayed. The size of the clock cannot be changed.
  10. PROS: Saves you having to manually clear your hard drives. Can help you find duplicate files and remove them. Free up some of your wasted RAM. Can schedule automatic system cleanups.
    CONS: May delete driver files that you actually need. Only frees up your RAM temporarily. All the functions are already available on the Mac. “Old files” function is redundant because old files are useful.
  11. PROS: Easy to use interface. Light footprint. Doesn’t require any advanced computer skills to use. Ideal for updating of device firmware.
    CONS: In some instances third-party drivers may be required to connect to devices. Lacks advanced tools for firmware/software developers. Using the app requires that the user understands the workings of basic shell commands. Connections with devices can be spotty at times.
  12. PROS: Mute your device for those times when you least want to hear it. Adjust fade across 1-5 seconds or set to mute immediately. Enjoy precious silence whenever restarting or logging off. Coping mechanism for when you need a device in your bedroom.
    CONS: Only supports built-in rather than external speakers. Probably not worth price when you can easily turn your device off instead. Better to encourage less device usage at bed time. Only available in English.

    PROS: Simplifies management of files. Can be used for complicated renaming/naming tasks. Allows users to create templates for regular tasks. The application keeps detailed records of file operations.
    CONS: Initial application set-up process can be complicated. User interface can be intimidating at first. Application is resource intensive when in operation. Limited applications/niche application.
  17. PROS: Flexibility: you decide how long your breaks last. Useful for self-discipline and accountability for tasks needing to get done. Dark mode means no worries about it being too distracting. Takes up very little space on your device.
    CONS: Timer flexibility can be twofold; you could cheat by taking longer breaks. No option to track total working hours for the day. Probably not worth price if you already have other timers. Doesn't track how many breaks you've taken.
  18. PROS: Reduces distracting notifications. You can customise the app to allow/disallow specific notifications. The app automatically highlights the active window. Dark mode can be activated from the app.
    CONS: The application lacks features for advanced users. The application can slow your system down in some instances. The app can hide important notifications if it is not set-up correctly. Better suited to large screens than smaller ones.
