5 Free Third-Party Mac Apps Worth Getting

    I like to use Grand Perspective. This is a cool visual representation of your files by size, and it tells you where to get them. Great when you want to sort out your overloaded hard drive.
    Thanks for your videos.

    Nice video. I use Clipy which can be found here: https://github.com/Clipy/Clipy and https://clipy-app.com/

    Just wondering, I noticed on your Excel screen shot that you had purple borders for the active cell. How did you do that? I can’t seem to get it to work on my Excel. I’ve even changed the System Preference. Maybe I need to reinstall MS Office.

    Fred: I don’t think I show Excel in this video. I show LibreOffice, but I don’t see purple borders. At what time in the video do you mean?

    My error, it was indeed Libre, and it looked purple on my phone. I’m trying to find that “just right” setting visually in Excel as I use it often. I will give Libre a try as well since they are straight forward spreadsheets. Thanks!

    Duplicate Detective is a handy little app to find duplicate files. If finds duplicates quickly, even those with different file names. Paste Plain Text is also nice to have if you do a lot of copy/paste.

    Great video. I would also recommend Stellarium as a free astronomical app for the Mac (the iOS version costs). I also find Zotero an excellent free research aid for keeping track of books & articles etc

    Is the LibreOffice truly a free app ?
    My AppStore offers it for £8.99 (as I’m in GB)
    Best regards.

    Peter: That’s a different app from another company based on the same code. Get it from the official website like I show.
