12 Free Macintosh Apps
(and 1 for sale on the Mac App Store)


Professionally-crafted applications.
No gimmicks, no ads, no catches.
Just simple solutions—mostly for free.


GrowlyBird Software provides high-quality applications for Macintosh—most of them free of charge and without copy protection. These are apps that we wrote for ourselves and want to share with the Mac community.

GrowlyBird is interested in apps you can use at home, in a small business, and at school. We like useful apps, fun apps, apps that can simplify or organize your life. We don’t like apps that try to be everything for everyone.

Our developer has been writing software for the Mac since 1984. He was a professional programmer and manager at Microsoft and other companies for 18 years, and something of an oddball all his life. He could have put all these apps out for sale on the App Store, but he’d rather give them away here. OK, we admit that he’s nuts. What can you do?

See our Products page for an overview of our apps and how to download them. Click the links in the sidebar at the left to see the pages for each app.
