So you’re no doubt wandering around the Mac App Store today as you look for Apps. chances are, you’re going to download a few of the free ones. For one, because you just want to download something and try it out; two, it’s free.
Let’s take a look at some of the cool free Apps available right now:
We played around with this App and immediately fell in love with it. It’s great for mapping out your ideas, and it’s very, very easy to use. Check it out: Link
2)Remind Me Later
This is another very cool App. It lets you set reminders on your calendar. For instance, launching the App and typing something like “Meeting tomorrow at 1pm” Will automatically create a reminder on your iCal that you have a meeting the next day at the specified time. Link
Itsy is a Twitter client for Mac and the name and friendly little smiley face sum it up perfectly. It’s very simple and clutter-free. What’s even nicer is that it has inline integration of popular twitter image sharing Apps. This means that if someone posts a twitpic or yfrog image, you will see it in the timeline without having to click a link. Link
Yup. Evernote….again. Sorry, folks, we probably aren’t going to stop bugging you about this one until you give it a shot. It’s a great free App, and we use it all the time between our various computers and iOS devices. It’s been a lifesaver on many occasions. Link
We aren’t web people, but this App is geared for those who are putting together websites or doing coding work. One thing we know for sure is that most of the users who comment on the App love it and have been using it for years. Link
6) Remote Snap
Remote Snap lets you take pictures from your iDevice and automatically transfers those photos to a computer on your network. You will need both the Mac App and the iOS App for this to work. This one is free and the iOS version comes in both paid and free packages. Link
It’s a password generator. The software lets you choose a number of characters, how many capital and how many lowercase letters you want along with how many numbers, etc. From there, it generates a random password and tells you how strong it is. Pretty cool if you are truly worried about security. Link
8) Smart Recorder
This one is free for a limited time, so get it while you can. It’s software designed for taking notes, which makes it perfect for college-aged kids who have to sit through lectures and remember important facts. You simply record and you can type and add time-based tags so that when you go back to review your notes, you can quickly jump to different parts of the lecture by searching based on the tag you created.

This is the official Twitter app for Mac. It’s very straightforward seems like a very light load on the computer. It’s nice and fast, and worth checking out. It’s not as awesome as Itsy, but it’s great for those who want something a bit more visual. Link
Simple RSS reader for those who are subscribed to a sickly number of blogs and news sources…like ourselves. We were looking for an option that would let us import from Google Reader, but didn’t have any luck. Still, it’s not bad for a free App on its first release. We do hope to see some new features in the updates ahead. Link
It’s just day one with the Mac App Store, so don’t be too surprised if you don’t find anything you like. It took us a bit of searching before we were actually interested in downloading anything. Some of these Apps are top-notch, while others are still in their early builds but should improve over time.
