    any cool apps or programs for a new user??
    hey guys i'm new to the apple scene and i just got Imac and i just upgraded it to snow leopard, but i was just wondering if there any cool and fun stuff to do on the macs?

    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    First question: your mac already came loaded with a LOT of fun stuff, from Photo Booth to iChat to the iLife apps. Check them out first and foremost!

    Beyond that, if you could give us some info on your areas of interest we could certainly help pinpoint some awesome stuff for you. I'll start with with a great site for freeware: FreeMacApps.com - Finder & Desktop Applications

    2nd question: No. Unless, of course, you want to buy or rent movies/tv shows, which you probably will as that is a great use of it.

    Thanks for the link.

    I don't really need any new software as the computer does come with cool features and software. No Junks like the PC.

    iworks or Ms office for mac is a must have though.

    And don't overlook Preview - a very capable App, you can deal to photos to change, exp, saturation, hue etc etc and save in umpteen formats using export and on top of that there is Instant Alpha which is great - you can highlight, circle, lasso and use pointers on documents and pics.
    I did this in Preview;

    Just checked wifes iMac - she is on Leopard and yes Leopard does have it - u have to load a pic before it shows.
    Note
    10.5 = Leopard
    10.6 = Snow Leopard.

    Oh, Okay I'm going to try it right now.

    How do I get 10.6? LOL.

    Honestly, I have no idea what version mine is.

    ETA: Okay, it says 10.6.2. Is that right?
