Ten Apple Apps for Business

Stay connected and improve productivity with these apps.

Not too long ago, I faced one of the biggest challenges in my working life, and this trial couldn't have happened at a more stressful time: my first day of work. Tasked with updating new information on Mac-related features of the company's software offerings, I found myself between the proverbial rock and a hard place.

 

But, my situation didn't result from a lack of familiarity with the software we produced. The dilemma arose from the fact that I didn't have much experience with the Mac OS; I didn't even know what the Apple menu was used for. Therefore, I had my work cut out for me as I needed to test our feature documentation on several versions of Apple's OS, including pre-OS X iterations like Mac OS 9.

 

That nightmare is, mercifully, behind me. I hope to prevent others from suffering by directing the Mac neophyte to the Mac OS X Lion Quick Reference Guide, developed and provided by frequent IT Downloads contributor CustomGuide.

 


This one-page tip sheet covers the basics of navigating the Mac desktop, shortening the learning curve and getting you up and running as quickly as possible:

  • Learn what all the desktop icons, menus and sidebars are used for.
  • Get comfortable using keyboard shortcuts to speed up your work.
  • Familiarize yourself with the applications on the Dock, like Safari, Time Machine and System Preferences.

 

Thanks to CustomGuide, you won't have to stumble blindly as I did.
