I came across the phrase “Mac-assed Mac apps” 😆 in this short post about Proxyman. Proxyman is a “Modern and Delightful Web Debugging Proxy” for the Mac.
Proxyman looks like a really nice alternative to Charles Proxy, which is very functional but drearily cross-platform app for Mac, Windows, and Linux.
Other examples are Mac-assed Mac apps are the Paw REST client as an alternative to the cumbersome Postman and Things as a true Mac-first app. And I’ll add Mail as an alternative to the crusty Outlook, which is slow to load and I just cannot use because it doesn’t support the standard Mac keyboard shortcuts (e.g. Clrt-A, Crtl-E).
What can I say, I just love these true Mac-assed Mac apps because they’re fun and easy to use. 🤷🏻♂️
