Ok, so we've all gotten a good handful of free apps with the promise of more to come. But what other free applications do you own? Anything amazing applications that are free but shouldn't be, and you would like to share with the rest of the MacHeist community? I'll start it off with a few that I have found over the years.

Caffeine - http://www.lightheadsw.com/caffeine/  Every Macbook [Pro/Air] should have this one.
Anxiety - http://www.anxietyapp.com/  Great innovative To-Do list in a sea of many.
Aurora 3 - http://www.anxietyapp.com/  The current version of Aurora (4) is not free, but if you still have or know where to find Aurora 3, it is still a great application. Its like Awaken from last year's MH.
EverSave - http://www.tool-forcesw.com/eversave/  Great for people who forget to save their documents.
SketchBox - http://www.omz-software.de/sketchbox/  This is pretty cool note manager. It has lots of features that Stickies (and Sticky Notes) doesn't (like really easy screen shots and drawing)
Time Out - http://www.dejal.com/timeout/  Check this out now before the 2.0 shareware comes out!
Transmission - http://www.transmissionbt.com/  BT Client
Punakea - http://www.nudgenudge.eu/punakea  Well designed file manager with tags.
QuartzClocks - http://mac.softpedia.com/get/Screensave … ocks.shtml  I can't find the website for this one anymore, but it is still available.
AppCleaner - http://www.freemacsoft.net/  Like AppZapper from MH2, but free. It also has an auto-detect delete feature that will automatically delete preference files when an app is deleted.

I think that that is a pretty good list for now. What else do you guys have?

Caffeine is a favorite of mine. All I have to do is click on the Coffee and my IMac can play a movie without falling asleep or dimming.

Awesome! Thanks for this - Caffeine is going to save me *so* much time. Was forever turning my power saving settings off when I wanted to watch a movie or something. Anxiety should be pretty useful too.

Thanks for those recommendations, I downloaded them right away and are trying them out now.

Apps I like:

NetNewsWire - http://www.newsgator.com/INDIVIDUALS/NETNEWSWIRE/ - awesome RSS reader
Paparazzi! - http://derailer.org/paparazzi/ - takes screenshots of complete websites, not just the visible parts
MacTubes - http://brpg.hp.infoseek.co.jp/mactubes/index_en.html - download YouTubes videos and convert them
Butler - http://www.manytricks.com/butler/ - something like Quicksilver, I guess - it's awesome

I found Awaken to be worth the price. Clean, simple UI, lacking some functionality but for me it was worth not having to do any fiddling. Plus, you get free upgrades for life.

I like Smultron, http://tuppis.com/smultron/. Handy little text editor with syntax coloring for the coders.
Of course Adium, Eclipse, Bean, Burn, Evernote, Dropbox (more of a web service, but still), Skim, and HandBrake are all nice too. Google for the links, I'm too tired to do that right now smile

Smart Sleep - definitely need for any macbook

iStat Menus - great to see whats goin on in your mac.
Monolingual - save some HD space.
SuperDocker - customize your dock and more.
SMC FanControl - adjust your fanspeed
AppFresh - keep ALL apps up to date


These are only a few of the apps I use, but they are all available on freemacware.com along with tons more.

Best of my freeware:

AppCleaner (http://www.freemacsoft.com/) -- better than AppZapper for me
AppFresh (http://metaquark.de/appfresh/) -- updates all apps
Boxee (http://boxee.tv) -- media center app that integrates with online video
Dropbox (http://www.getdropbox.com/) -- best file syncing service out there
Flashmount (http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/20888) -- mounts disk images faster than built in tool
Genius (http://web.mac.com/jrc/Genius/) -- bad website, but awesome flash card app
Jing (http://jingproject.com/) -- very good screenshot app, like skitch
MainMenu (http://www.santasw.com/) -- free maintenance app, uses built in OS X scripts
NetNewsWire (http://www.newsgator.com/Individuals/NetNewsWire/) -- RSS reader that syncs with newsgator.com
Schoolhouse 2 (http://www.loganscollins.com/schoolhouse/) -- just updated, best homework manager for mac

A few apps I've come across...

GimmeSomeTune - Great for lyrics and album art for iTunes
Psst - I'm a light sleeper, heck, even the sound of the hard drive wakes me up, but if you keep your laptop nearby, this keeps the Start-Up chime from going off
HandBrake - There isn't much to say about this one, perfection with a pineapple
Keyboard Cleaner - In case you like a clean computer

That's about all I've got. Sorry, I can't post links...too new.

I use Caffeine all the time. I mean its probably the simplest and yet useful app out there.
Handbrake-is hands down the best app for ripping dvds
idk if anyone mentioned Gimp-photo editing software. Almost as powerful as Photoshop
GrandPersepctive- is great. Gives you a visual representation of all your files.

Those are two other surprisingly free ones. I won't put links up because they are both pretty well known (and I'm feeling kinda lazy).

MindNode - http://www.mindnode.com/  This is a really great looking flowchart creator. I feel like it could use some extra features to make it better for taking notes with, but it can still be done. I still have to check out Curio.

For those of you who said you were using Caffeine - check out InsomniaX - does the same thing as far as I gathered, but allows you to keep a MacBook awake even when the screen is closed.

Some others I like:
- Quicksilver rules my world. I do wish it didn't hang several times daily. I hope the new Google Quick Search box (which has the same person behind it) is developed to replicate most of the functionality.

- iStat Pro and Organized widgets from iSlayer are the main reason to use the dashboard.

- Skim if you spend your days reading pdf research papers like I do.

- VLC, need I say more?

- Microsoft's LiveMesh has served me well for online syncing/backup since I dropped DropBox (see what I did there?). The 'box was fine, but I really needed the ability to sync selected folders rather than having all the synchronised files corralled within a single location. And the 5 gig free storage is a bonus too.

SuperDuper! - excellent full disk backup app.....it should be packaged with the OS
VLC + FairMount + Handbrake - For ripping movies to iTunes
Audacity - audio editor (quite powerful)
X-Moto - awesome game
Smultron - my fav text editor
Picasa - So that I do not have to buy iLife 09 yet
Dropbox - file sync
Cruz - sexiest web browser, but still early
Desktop Lyrics - see lyrics to iTunes songs on your desktop as if a part of the wallpaper
Force Eject - for the times when you have tried everything else to get that disc to eject...
iStat (for desktop....I keep this in the background attached to desktop and it is indispensable)
jEdit - powerful text editor that is highly customizable
Max - powerful cd ripping, using many more formats than iTunes
OpenOffice 3 - die, M$, die
Permanent Eraser - I prefer this to secure empty trash because I get far fewer error messages
pearLyrics - best desktop widget (in my experience) for getting lyrics to currently playing songs
Region X - for RPC-1 drives only!!!
Schoolhouse - student schedule....too bad I found it right after I graduated...
Stacks In Da Place - because I hate the default stacks folders
Truecrypt - for encrypting usb flash drives (and more stuff if you are brave)
Wallpaper Clocks - brilliant desktop wallpapers with realtime clocks built in....eye candy
WinClone - backing up boot camp partitions (but be careful)
XTastes - FOR THOSE THAT LIKE TO FIND MAC FREEWARES

Edit: Can't believe that I forgot to mention Paintbrush, similar to Paint in windows. My wife really likes it (recent mac convert).

Caffeine is a software that prevents ur screen/comp from going to sleep... and it's one click away.. so you dont need to go all the way to the prefernce and change it everytime.
