I use a lot of software daily for different tasks I do. The more tools you have on your Mac the more the distractions are. I have been trying to reduce the number of software I use since 2o19, it really helps me a lot.
Like I had a number of documents on Google Keep, OneNote, and Notes, also there were duplicate items. I am able to merge all of them in the Mac Notes app which also sync nicely with my iPhone. So no more 3 different apps for documents on my Mac and iPhone. Notes app is not perfect but it works for me.
Also, I have canceled my Office 365 subscriptions, no longer using Word and Excel, I completely moved to Apple Pages and Numbers. Apple Pages and Number are not close to Microsoft Word and Excel but again it works for me.
I also purchased iCloud 200GB plan and moved all my OneDrive files there, Office 365 really good it offers 1TB but I wanted to get rid of all 3rd party apps from my Mac for better productivity and removing redundant software.
Here is the list of 3rd party software I use on my Mac
- JetBrains tools (PhpStorm, PyCharm, and AppCode)
- Transmit 5
- Android Studio
