ET OSX is a list of useful tools for the MacOS X, most of which live in the Applications folder on my startup drive. It started as a 'what's on my Mac' page on my personal site but quickly evolved into a blog of its own. I'm trying to focus most on of the tiny but useful utilities that sometimes save you lots of trouble and effort, and to omit for the most part the list of big guns, that one normally uses on a daily basis. The list serves two purposes, lets me easily answer 'how do I do this on the Mac' questions asked by other users, and helps me remember answers to the same questions myself.


OmniOutliner ( - another application by the OmniGroup, I think this one can be described as a tool for data collection and organization. I usually start a new project by organizing a list of actions/items in OmniOutliner, then each item becomes a category containing other items and so on. The user interface allows for multi-column lists, checkboxes for each item, drag-and-drop of text, graphics, attachment files. Once you've collected and organized your data you can easily export it one of the many formats OmniOutliner supports - text, html, xml, opml, keynote(!) presentations, etc. OmniOutliner is available for $39.95 or you can go for the Professional version for $69.95.
