Apps, Tools & Software

A huge categorized dump of all the tools I use/used at some point.

Cloud & Data dumping โ˜๏ธ
  • Google Drive: cloud storage for everything else; 15GB with a free Google Account

  • Pastebin: A pastebin or text storage site is a type of online content hosting service where users can store plain text
  • Dropbox: cloud storage for photos (because Google Drive has really dumb sync with Google Photos, e.g. if I delete a photo from Google Photos, then the copy of this photo from Google Drive is automatically deleted)
Editors / IDEs /Build a website ๐Ÿ•ธ๏ธ
Internet search ๐Ÿ”
Learning & Reading ๐Ÿ“’

Media โ–ถ๏ธ
  • VLC media player: video player. Features I use the most: (1) increase / decrease in viewing speed by .1 of the original speed; (2) simple switching of subtitles / audio tracks and the ability to delay them, if either is out of sync with the video; (3) ability to set volume above 100%.
PDFs ๐Ÿ–‡๏ธ
Productivity & Note-taking โœ๏ธ
  • Evernote โ€” long-term knowledge base
  • Amazing Marvin: best to do list manager
  • Coda โ€” begins with a blinking cursor and grows as big as your teamโ€™s ambition. Weโ€™ve seen Coda docs do everything from run weekly meetings to launch products.
  • Notion
Security ๐Ÿ”

Utilities ๐Ÿ› ๏ธ
  • AutoHotkey: runs a script that remaps Backspace to CapsLock and โ€œ==-โ€ into โ€œโ€”โ€
  • Ditto: clipboard manager (e.g. allows to recover pictures that you copied previously)
  • Git Bash: console
  • LinkChecker: checks links on localhost for brokeness
  • Total Commander: file manager for when Windows File Explorer is not enough (e.g. need to mass rename files according to same pattern)
  • T-Clock: allows me to configure the tray to display current date in YYYY-MM-DD format
Language Processing ๐ŸŒ
  • Grammarly: free grammar checker
  • Hemingway Editor: word processor and proofreading tool designed for writers. It is a standalone program that can be accessed online or by downloading the desktop version of theย app; and helps users write in a simple, clear, and powerful manner.
