I use a lot of apps, programs and physical things that I find particularly useful. Here are some of them.

MindNode – The best mindmapping app for Mac I’ve found. There are others that do similar things and have more features but this strikes the right balance between simplicity, feature set and aesthetics.

Ulysses – Minimalist markdown text editor. It’s actually a lot more than that. It’s a hub for all my writing needs. It could be made a lot better by adding the ability to collect disparate pieces of text and pull them together into one document–much like Airstory.

Franz – Get all your messages in one place. From WhatsApp to Messenger, Skype, Slack, Telegram and even Gmail, you can use them all in this app.
