👍 My Default Apps 2024

I saw that people are posting the apps they have installed on their Mac and thought I’d put my collection out there too. After throwing together my list, I realized that this exercise is based on a podcast episode where people were competing to see who used the most default apps. That’s cute, but I just want to share what I’m using and see what others are using. This is why my list is different than everyone else’s. I also realize some of these aren’t Mac applications, but I use them just like I do an app and figure they are worth mentioning.
