    This Apps in the spotlight episode was really great. I have to go back and re listen for sure. You asked what other hidden apps we’d like to know more about. My “wish I knew more” are : Disk Utility, activity monitor, stickies and photo booth. I am sure I don’t know the 1/2 of it. Keep up the great work! You are gems.
