Our Development Setup (2)

Favorite Apps

We use a lot of apps in developing our apps. Here are the list of apps we frequently use. We prefer macOS built-in apps to third-party apps:)

1. Xcode

2. Terminal (macOS built-in App)

3. Digital Color Meter (macOS built-in App)

4. Screenshot (macOS built-in App)

5. DB Browser for SQLite

We use sqlite3 to manage the Samplism database.

6. Ableton Live 10 Suite

We are a big fan of Ableton Live.

7. Logic Pro X

The best all-in-one DAW on the planet.

8. Sound Forge for Mac

Our favorite audio editing app for Mac.

9. Final Cut Pro

All our Youtube videos are created using Final Cut Pro.

10. QuickTime

We think that QuickTime is the best free app for screen recording.

11. Atom

In spite of some critical drawbacks, Atom is our most favorite text editor.

12. Visual Studio Code

Our another favorite text editor. We think that Visual Studio Code is far better than Atom for many reasons. But the only reason that we prefer Atom to Visual Studio Code is that we’re more used to Atom:(

13. Sketch

All icons in Samplism are created using Sketch.

14. Pixelmator Pro

All images about our apps are created using Pixelmator Pro. We prefer Pixelmator Pro rather than Photoshop.
