If you work with databases, do yourself a favour and get a native app to interface with them. Base ($26.99, http://menial.co.uk/base/) does a great job for SQLite databases, while RoboMongo (Free, http://www.robomongo.org/)  works with MongoDB. Clearly there’s not much variation in the icon design for database apps!

The choice of text editor is very personal. I’ve been using Atom (Free, https://atom.io/) for the last year, and it’s rapidly improving. Recent changes to auto-complete have made the editor very slick to use.

Bind a keyboard shortcut to Dash (Free, https://kapeli.com/dash) and you can easily check the documentation for a huge number of languages with a few keystrokes. This is great if you’re working in one language, say Swift, and forget how to do something in another language, say CSS.

Jumpcut (Free, http://jumpcut.sourceforge.net/)http://jumpcut.sourceforge.net/) is one of those tools you don’t realise how much you rely on until you use a computer without it. It stores your clipboard history, and lets you choose which item to paste. So for example you can copy two items in quick succession, then paste both.

When colleagues ask you to do things, don’t interrupt your flow. Fire up Things ($49.99, http://culturedcode.com/things/), add a quick todo, and come back to it later. Slicker than a TODO.txt, you can organise your todo lists into projects and even add recurring todos.

If you need to generate promo codes for the App Store, you can use Tokens ($29.00, http://usetokens.com/) without ever having to open a browser. Tokens will keep track of which tokens have been redeemed too, so you know if your marketing is working.

If you have a Mac with a small SSD, it can quickly fill up with temporary files when developing. DaisyDisk ($9.99, http://daisydiskapp.com/) will help you track down what’s taking up space on your disk – whether a huge DerivedData folder or that movie you  downloaded and forgot about.

The hardest part of using source control is the occasional tricky merge. Learn not to dread merges with Kaleidoscope ($69.99, http://www.kaleidoscopeapp.com/)http://www.kaleidoscopeapp.com/), a beautifully designed app for diffs and merges. It will even let you compare images.
