I found this little gem on 25 FREE MAC Apps. Since I'm a PC girl I really can't give you a review of yeah I use this one or that one is a waste of time but I thought I would pass them on to our MAC users. If your one of our MAC users and you have used one of the apps let us know if its good or bad or what you think.

Here are the quick rundown of the apps

  1. aLunch - helps you get all your apps organized and get an uncluttered dock.
  2. Kuler, the web-hosted application for generating color themes.
  3. Name Changer is a very straightforward and simple tool that will help you rename batches of files without the hassle of Automator or Photoshop batch change
  4. YemuZip is a more powerful Zip-archive application that with a simple drag and drop interface, makes creating zip files an easy task.
  5. Dateline gives you a linear calendar on your desktop within a transparent window.
  6. DropBox is by far the easiest way to share files if you are on a low budget and do not want to be bothered with server side issues when sharing files with clients.
