Stuff Brett Uses

This page contains affiliate links to things I use frequently, if not daily. It’s not an attempt to trick you into buying things to make me money. I just really love this stuff, and these companies happen to offer me a little payout when I get other people to also love this stuff.

Setapp
I have an app (Marked) on Setapp, but I also use about 30 apps on the service right now. It’s well worth the $10/mo, and using the Setapp version of apps you already own also offers recurring support to your favorite developers.
Sanebox
My email sanity wouldn’t work without Sanebox. It helps me achieve Inbox Zero every day. I wouldn’t want to have an email address without it.
Hook
Hook ties all of my apps together, and I’ve written about it before. If you’ve ever wished you could easily connect a project’s notes, files, web pages, and tasks together, Hook is the answer.
MindMeister
I do my local mind mapping using iThoughtsX on Setapp, but when I want to share a map or work collaboratively, there is no better solution than MindMeister. LOVE IT.
Fathom Analytics
Because I value my readers’ privacy, I stopped using Google Analytics a long time ago. To get just the info I need for advertisers and my own design decisions, I use Fathom, which doesn’t track any personal information. If you run a website and are even a little turned off by Google’s privacy practices, check it out.
CleanMyMac3
This is not the malware you’re thinking of. It’s a solid, reputable, and highly effective app for cleaning up your hard drive, performing system maintenance, and keeping your Mac in tip top shape.
