These are the tools I use in my UX design work at least once a week in 2019:
- 13" MacBook Air (2018)
- Magic Trackpad
- Alfred: A meta tool like Apple’s Spotlight, but much more powerful. With “workflows”, I can turn certain apps on or off – even OSX’s native Dark Mode – via keyboard shortcut.
- f.lux: to reduce the amount of blue light on my MacBook.
- Moom: to move and resize windows via keyboard shortcuts.
- GIF Brewery for creating GIF which I can, for example, put into Google Slides.
- Byword for writing Markdown
- Evernote for notes and bookmarks
- Keynote and Google Slides for presentations
- Google Sheets for crunching numbers
