I love tools. I really do, and some of them are the ones that I simply can’t live (online) without. That’s how I ended up publishing over a dozen listicles featuring the best productivity tools, blogging tools, marketing tools, social media tools, browser extensions, and more.
Today, I have decided to show my gratitude to fantastic eight macOS utilities. I said, “Utilities” and not “Apps” since it’s just a nifty list of tools that enables you to do certain things (or to enable additional functionalities) that are otherwise not possible on your Mac.
