Installing apps on a Mac can sometimes be a long and tedious process, especially when dealing with your clients. As a technician, you have a lot to do in a day, and manually installing apps for your clients can consume valuable time in your busy schedule.
GetMacApps makes it easy for you to batch install multiple Mac Apps for your clients, usually, in under a minute.
GetMacApps allows you to select multiple apps from a list, simply by clicking the checkboxes. The apps are organized by category, and feature many of the most popular apps for the Mac. Some of the categories listed are; browsers, productivity, messaging and media. A full list of categories and apps is available at the developer’s website below.
After you have selected the apps you want to install for your client, some of which are freeware, shareware and commercial license, you simply have to scroll down to the bottom of the page and click the large “Install These!” button. GetMacApps will then return a Terminal Command that you can run to quickly and instantly download and install the app(s) for your client.
Other than being a fast and easy way to install many apps at once, for residential clients, GetMacApps can also be used when you need to setup multiple new Macs for your clients, much like in a business environment where administrators would want all of the Macs in their company to be running the same software. You can easily obtain the terminal command, and simply reuse it on every Mac that needs to be setup with that configuration of apps potentially saving you a lot of time.
