    I just switched from being Windows for life to a Mac user. So, what are some cool apps or widgets that are out there? I googled, but it kept giving me the same things over and over again.

    haha I forgot about macpilot. I have that too and I set my date back.
    OEcake is a cool sandbox game like aquaforest (if you can find it) and all you have to do is set your date back a while to be able to play it (cause it was discontinued).
