Software I'm using in 2021
It’s been a few years since I’ve done a proper review of the software I’m using. I find it a useful activity to take a look at those apps which help me be a productive freelance and indie software developer. This article covers only macOS software, since getting an M1 MacBook Air I have few reasons to use iOS apps for work purposes.
What I need to do Communicate with my clients Provide support for my indie apps Write proposals for new projects Plan projects Track tasks - for projects and for supporting existing apps Designing UI for mobile and web apps Develop apps for iOS Develop apps for Android Develop web apps (writing both frontend and server-side code currently in AngularJS, Angular and PHP) Create/update websites for my indie apps Forecast income over the next few months Track time spent on projects - both fixed price and work charged for time spent Main software Emacs I only started using Emacs in 2017 (which prompted me to write my app beorg) and now use throughout my day for writing code (when working on web apps), editing my websites, planning projects, tracking time and more.
