I have been publishing a list of free software for iOS, tvOS and OS X each month for some time.
macOS software is now being compiled in a large, cumulative table. Many titles were appearing repeatedly in this list. I think the directory will both take less time for me and provide users with a better way to discover Mac software.
The macOS Software directory is updated frequently and currently contains more than 700 entries. More than 230 of those entries are available for FREE download.
Please give me feedback if this expanded list is valuable to you.
This is NOT a curated list. All I know about these titles is what you see below. None have been tried or tested by me.
- Utilities – Ben Software today announced a major update of their iOS app for viewing and managing SecuritySpy CCTV systems. SecuritySpy is a video surveillance solution for macOS that turns any Mac into a CCTV recording station (NVR). With the iOS app, customers can use their iPhone or iPad to view live video and audio, play back captured footage, control Pan/Tilt/Zoom, and control recording, all from over a local network or over the Internet. The SecuritySpy iOS/tvOS app is a free download from Apple’s App Store that offers most of its features for free. To access the Multiplex and Browser features, there is an in-app purchase that costs GBP 4.99 (USD $6.99). This is a one-time payment that covers all devices linked to the same Apple ID account. A counterpart tvOS app is also available, which provides a similar viewing experience for Apple TV. Please note you will need a Mac running SecuritySpy to use this app. SecuritySpy itself can be trialled for 30 days before purchase, with no demo limitations whatsoever. Download from the App Store
