List of applications and tools that make my macOS experience even more amazing

Light appearance. Prefer to use light themes as it makes text more readable during the day with natural light around.

Dark appearance. All apps are in one desktop since there is delay in switching between macOS multiple desktops. Dock is hidden. Desktop background is dynamic.


I use a lot of apps on my mac. Below is a list of my favorite tools with descriptions of how I use them.

I also share my dotfiles together with my iOS setup. And I made a Telegram group to discuss all things macOS/iOS.

I have extensive wiki where I share everything I know. Apps that I described in the wiki are linked to from here.

Changing themes

I made KM macro with this AppleScript to switch between light/dark macOS appearances. As appearances are switched, the themes get updated accordingly on most apps.
