Here’s our run down of the essential apps available for web developers and designers. Rather than focus on one element of the web development or design process, we’ve pretty much covered all the bases here. You’ll find apps designed for code editing, file and data transfer, collaboration, database management, image editing, invoicing, time tracking, expenses tracking and much, much more.
The apps explored below are a rather disparate group, but there are two common threads tying them together. Firstly, as you might expect, they are all perfect for web developers and designers, greatly reducing the time, hassle and heartache needlessly expended during projects. Secondly, they have all been designed to be used on a Mac, by a dedicated Mac user, who expects his or her apps to operate in a certain Mac-like way.
Most of them are relatively inexpensive and almost all of them offer a free trial period, so pick the ones that are right for you and give them a go. You never know, they might just change your professional life!
