Applications to install in a Fresh Hackintosh

Applications to install in a Fresh Hackintosh

After installing Hackintosh, you might want to install a few Applications for your Hackintosh to tweak OS X.

macOS got many built-in apps like Pages (equivalent to word), Numbers (equivalent to excel), Keynote(equivalent to PowerPoint) these apps are free (really free if you own a mac) these may be not available for Hackintosh users, here are some apps to Install and not to Install


MacKeeper Definitely never install this shit, MacKeeper is a spam, adware app that you should never install, MacKeeper is a heavily advertised app all over the internet, when you try to download (just download) MacKeeper, it is distributed as a DMG Installer Package, that package needs an active internet connection to Install, so they can add new launch daemons to load spammy proxy apps every time you log in, uninstalling MacKeeper is not easy
iDoctorapp is also a spammy app I didn’t find any useful tweaks to use

Clean My Mac Instead which has many built-in tweaks, which are very useful

1 LittleSnitch

LittleSnitch


Little Snitch is an awesome privacy protector cause, It monitors all apps that are using your internet connection. You can deny and allow internet access to apps if you wish to, this saves a lot of bandwidth and you can track apps that might be spying on you.

2 MBBench


MBBench


MBBench is an application to monitor the real-time speed of Your disk or Flash drive (SSD, HDD, USB Speeds)

3 Desktop Utility

Desktop Utility


Desktop Utility is a very useful Application to deal with hidden files, easily Show Hide, Hidden files, Desktop and Your ~/Library folder and also you can hide your Desktop icons too.

4 Mplayer OS X Extended

Mplayer OS X Extended


I prefer Mplayer OS X Extended to Play videos on Mac Instead of
VLC, QuickTime doesn’t support MKV, AVI Files.

5 Flux

Flux

Well, Macs doesn’t support Night-mode(Before Sierra), Save your eyes for later Install Flux, A must needed application has features better than Apple’s built-in Night Shift mode, Flux has features like movie mode, temporarily disable, color effects and etc.

6 The UnArchiver

The UnArchiver


Because Archive Utility is not enough, not enough to extract RAR files.

7 IINA

IINA


Another Good Audio/Video/Media player for macOS, because Quicktime doesn’t work well with many files.
