App to prevent distractions at work

What are good apps that would help me to don’t fall into distractions easily while working? I’m 100% home office worker on my own mac, and I’m quite easily distracted, especially by web. Looking for something that could help to avoid that.

I am in dire need of a replacement for Better Touch Tool

I just got access to a magic mouse 2 thanks to a friend but I feel like it's missing many gestures by default. I found this app called Better Touch Tool that's used for it but I don't have the budget to buy it. I've spent a good 2 hours trying to find a free alternative but everything i've found is outdated/deprecated

​

edit: Yes I am in dire need. I have no other mouse nor do I have the money to afford one which is why my friend gifted it to me and I don't know if any of you have tried but 3D modelling with a trackpad isn't necessarily the easiest thing to do

Any experience with the Cloaked app?

Last year I switched from Lastpass to Bitwarden when Lastpass was having their security issues. Bit Warden has been great - but today I've been playing with Cloaked that neatly not only passwords, but unique emails and phone numbers as well.

Does anyone have any experience with it - and are they a potential security risk? I'd hate to move to something that's less trusted.

Chrome Extensions into Safari

Hey Guys,

Just wanted to ask some of you users of Safari like me. Have you imported any extensions from Chrome? I see online that the process is somewhat complex to import a Chrome extension in Safari. Is there an app for that?

Mails end up in the spam folder by mistake

Hello,

I am looking for a solution to the following problem:

I have my own domain that I use via iCloud+.

Unfortunately, it often happens that mails that I receive are mistakenly moved to the spam folder.

Zenario 1:

I write to a customer. His reply to my email is incorrectly classified as spam.

Zenario 2:

A customer that I have saved in my contacts sends me an email that is incorrectly classified as spam.

This problem has only been occurring since I started using my domain via iCloud+.

When everything was still running via the Strato servers, the problem didn't exist.

Is this due to iCloud? How can I fix it?

I would be grateful for any solutions.

AI file manager for Mac | Cosmos

I developed Cosmos to manage my own files and thought others might find it useful. Thinking about adding features to find duplicates files and maybe text search. It's 100% private, so no data every leaves your computer. If you think you'd use this, I would love some constructive feedback.

Autohotkey alternative For Mac OS

I'm using autohotkey on my windows machine. I'm looking for an app for Mac OS that can do automation such as clicking coordinates and sending a shortcut key after that, combination of modifier keys(shift, alt, ctrl), modify scroll wheel or middle mouse button as Alt, and easy to configure and set it up. Most of my scripts run on a specific window only like a browser (google chrome).

I modify some keys to make it ergonomic so that my right and left hand won't leave on keyboard and mouse. Thanks in advance for those who can give or suggest an app that I could try and test. Thanks!

Tiempo V2 - Menu Bar App for Remote Workers

trytiempo.com

Hi r/macapps! I want to share the new version of the menu bar app that I've created called Tiempo.

This new version includes a new design, UX improvements, and awesome new features! Try it here!

If you work remotely with teammates in different time zones, you know how frustrating managing multiple zones and doing time zone conversions can be.

--------

Tiempo is perfect for freelancers, startup founders, managers of global teams, or anyone who needs to collaborate with others across time zones. Here are some of the features that Tiempo offers:

  • Timezone Management: Add or subtract time from any timezone in the world with just a few clicks.
  • Pin your favorites Timezones in the menu bar: Pinning time zones in the menu bar allows a quick view, simplifies scheduling with global teams, and prevents disturbing colleagues out of hours.
  • Minimalist Design: Tiempo's clean and minimalist design blends seamlessly with your desktop, providing a clutter-free and distraction-free workspace.

Tiempo is available for Mac for a modest one-time fee to support the development of the app.

I've designed it to be simple and easy to use, with all the features that remote workers need to stay on top of their schedules and collaborate effectively across time zones.

I hope you find Tiempo useful for your remote work needs. Please let me know if you have any feedback or suggestions for improvements.

You can download Tiempo from the following link: trytiempo.com

Thanks for your time, and happy remote working!

[UPDATE] WinDiskWriter — bootable disk creator for macOS. Now supports Legacy BIOS and 32-bit Windows Images!

Good day everyone! 👋
About 3 months ago, I posted about my Free & Open-Source Software for creating Windows USB drives on macOS.

Software Poster

WinDiskWriter — bootable USB disk creator for macOS.

Since then, I have made many improvements and added new features that will surely be useful for someone:

  • 🆕 Support for the x86 (x32) Windows Images
  • 👾 Support for Legacy BIOS
  • 🛠 Support for patching Windows 11 Installer
  • 🚀 Improved RAM-management
  • 🛠 Fixed UI freezes when a rapid stream of logs is displayed on the screen
  • 👀 Updated UI
  • ⌨️ Fixed keyboard shortcuts

WinDiskWriter finished the writing operation

I have devoted a lot of time to understanding the logic of how operating systems boot on old motherboards with Legacy BIOS, so I would appreciate it if you could test this new functionality on your hardware.
I have already verified it on two computers with AMI BIOS, but I am curious to know how it performs with other motherboards.

Currently, WinDiskWriter supports the following versions of Microsoft Windows, both 32-bit and 64-bit, for booting in UEFI and Legacy mode:

  • Windows 11 *(*TPM and Secure Boot requirements can be patched by enabling 'Patch Installer Requirements')
  • Windows 10
  • Windows 8.1
  • Windows 8
  • Windows 7
  • Windows Vista
  • [Any Windows Server with the same Windows NT version]

​

💾 You can download WinDiskWriter from the official repo on GitHub: https://github.com/TechUnRestricted/windiskwriter/releases

⭐️ I would also be very happy if you give a star to my repository. ⭐️

Star me on GitHub 🥺

​

If you have any questions or suggestions — you can post them here or in the Issues on GitHub.

Thank you ❤️

Yesterday, I launch Picview on Product Hunt, but the results were not good. Only 19 Upvoted, I want to know how I can do it better.

The Product Hunt link is here:

https://www.producthunt.com/posts/picview-image-photo-picture-viewer

I noticed that many people, especially Windows users who recently switched to Mac, find it challenging to adjust to using macOS Preview or QuickLook for image viewing. They miss the familiarity of Microsoft Photos, where they could zoom in and out using the mouse wheel and switch between images with arrow keys and/or on-screen buttons.

To address this, I developed Picview, a macOS image viewer like Microsoft Photos. It is built using Swift, the native language for macOS development. Picview is compact, user-friendly, and highly responsive, with a small file size of only 7.1 MB, and you can download and use it for free from the App Store.

I am eager to know where my current problems lie and how to make improvements for progress.

Can anybody help me? Thanks.

PasteQ:A clipboard tool that can complete classification search, copy and paste with just keyboard shortcuts.

I used to use Rasycast's clipboard, but I found that it couldn't quickly complete copying and pasting with just keyboard shortcuts. Many times it still required mouse assistance.

So, I wrote a new app: PasteQ (currently only available on the Mac App Store).

PasteQ meets all my needs:

  1. Quickly search, copy, and paste with just keyboard shortcuts
  2. Supports automatic categorization by record type, such as images, links, text, etc.
  3. No need to remember all the shortcuts, they are automatically suggested
  4. Records can be edited again.

​

What is PasteQ?

Intelligent hotkeys, no mouse operation, fast search and copy, guarantee privacy and security. Support automatic classification of images, links, files, text, etc. Custom categories are also supported. Support multi-record merge copy.

Show desktop

Hi,

Is there any app/shortcut/workaround through which you can minimize all open windows at once on a Mac? I'm talking about something like pressing the Windows key + D on Windows, not the macOS "reveal all" function, since all open windows eventually go back to their original position.

Thanks in advance!

Looking for Clipboard Manager app

Hello everyone, I am looking for a lightweight clipboard manager app that can display the full copied content. Currently, I'm using Past Pal, which is good, but I think it has heavy CPU usage. Additionally, I have Pasta, which is very lightweight and works well, but it can't display the full content of copied long text or code.

Mac Email client with XL widget?

Trying to find an email client for MacOS that has an XL (or large) widget so I can monitor incoming emails while I work on other projects. Airmail has one, but it works maybe 50% of the time. I would not mind paying for this either, so any suggestions are welcome.

​

Thank you!

Plan route trip app with a 3D map

Hi,

Any good app (without a subscription) to plan a route trip?

I'm looking for an app that shows a nice map (preferably 3D), where I can pin my starting point, destinations with attractions, and more.

I tried to use Maps on Mac, but it's limited and doesn't let me save all the destinations, which is quite funny, it's so basic that I thought that Maps could let me plan a trip, and add all the attractions, locations, etc...

Thank you!

App that changes wallpapers automatically periodically from a folder i chose and shuffles them.

I know theres a built in feature, but it goes by order which kinda sucks. Unfortunately, if you set it to shuffle with 2 monitors, you'll have different wallpapers on each display. I hope theres an app with all this being possible.

Ty in advance
