As an artist, and art teacher, who has been using my computer to create artwork for over two decades, one tool that I have always wanted is a Wacom Cintiq. If you don’t know what a Cintiq is, it is basically a drawing tablet that doubles as your computer monitor. Therefore, you draw on your monitor making it more like a true drawing experience than drawing on a non monitor type of tablet where you draw on the tablet but have to look up for your results on your display. I have never gotten a Cintiq because of price. However, thanks to a new Mac and iPad app called Astropad I can have a Cintiq-like experience on my iPad.
Looking for some cheap little utility type of apps for your Mac? Here’s a few that are available in the Mac App Store for $1.99 or less.
Alfred (free) Alfred is a great Spotlight replacement. I have never been a fan of Spotlight, but I used to love Quicksilver. Alfred is more like Quicksilver for finding things on your Mac. It does a bunch more too, but personally I only use it to find and launch applications on my Mac.
