It have been like one month since I got my new toy … macBook pro 15 inch 2.8 GHZ laptop.
I just love it since first day of use, its fast, sexy and it works fine.
But not for flash development which is my primary job all time. The only software that I can’t work without is flashdevelop.
If you code on flashdevelop you will understand me, I’m not speaking here about all the features that come with that great AS editor, but most important one for me: code completion.
After research and testing I find that Flex builder will be my editor under the mac.
I’m not doing too much Flex development (well that’s might be changed) , for my as3 coding I need to just create flex library project and include source directory. Well, Ctrl+Enter will not run flash cs4, so I have to switch to flash, not sure if there is a solution for that.
The reason for buying mac: mostly because of wanna learn objective c, still hard to find time between job at the office and my freelance projects after work.
So here are the list of software that I find useful to have (suggested by friends mostly):
browser: Mozilla Firefox for sure
ftp client: CyberDuck
application launcher: quicksilver
Tweeter client: TweetDeck is my favorite one on mac, pc and on iphone
file share: DropBox is just amazing tool to share files , get access from anywhere, using a lot
font management: LynoType FontExplorer
Rss reader: NetNewsWire is great on mac
player: VLC is best both on win and mac
Well, that’s all my list for now, will add more in future.
