Stuff I Install When Setting Up a Mac

Stuff I Install When Setting Up a Mac

2 min read

Lately, I've been setting up my new Mac and thought that it would be a good chance to log down what I needed to install for future reference. This post will be updated from time to time as I install back all the apps that I use daily.

Must-to-have apps to make life easier

  • Chrome: I just can't live without it 不
  • Rectangle: Move and resize windows the easiest way.
  • Scroll Reverser: You'll probably need this when using an external mouse. It controls your mouse/trackpad scroll the way you want it to be.
  • Clipy: Clipboard extension for mac. I use it to store stuff I copy and paste a lot.
  • Karabiner Elements: Map keyboards the way you want them to be. Super useful when using a non-mac keyboard to adjust the order of the keys to be the same as on Mac.
  • Sound Control: Mac's built-in sound control isn't that great you know. You can control the volume through your Mac even if it's connected to an HDMI output.

For development


  • Zoom: Choose the Silicon chips version for M1
  • Slack
  • Notion: Probably relying on it more than I should?
