With 2014 coming to a close, it’s time to look through Tom’s Mac Software Picks for 2014 and select the 10 best apps from the list.

Every Saturday I post a new entry on my list of Mac software apps that I think deserve a look-see by the readers of About Macs. Each app must offer exceptional value and quality to make the grade.

With the year coming to an end, I searched through my 2014 picks to see which 10 apps I would recommend to those of you who are looking for some of the best software to install. Of course, such a list would typically depend on how you use your Mac. Casual users, music enthusiasts, and video professionals all have different needs, and slightly different lists of 10 apps they should install. My list is for casual users, who should find most of the apps useful regardless of how they use their Macs.

By the way, this list is also a pretty good starting point for those of you who received new Macs this holiday season. Give these apps a try; all have demos available, and some of the apps are even free.
