Mac Format - - APPLE CORE - Writ­ten by Craig Gran­nell & Kenny Hem­phill

You’ve al­ready spent a lot of money for the priv­i­lege of us­ing a Mac, iPhone or iPad. Do you re­ally have to hand over even more of your cash to get apps that’ll push the hard­ware? The an­swer is no, of course.

There’s a top-notch se­lec­tion of free soft­ware avail­able on the in­ter­net and in the App Store. Whether you want to cre­ate an il­lus­tra­tion or a pub­li­ca­tion, plug some func­tion­al­ity gaps in macOS or iOS to work bet­ter for you, or you want to use your kit in more parts of your daily life, there is – to para­phrase Ap­ple – (prob­a­bly) a free app for that.

We asked two long-term Ap­ple users, both of whom have been us­ing and writ­ing about Macs for decades, to iden­tify the cream of the crop. Over the fol­low­ing 11 pages, dis­cover their choices and why you should down­load them.
