Google Drive lets you store and access your files anywhere -- on the web, on your hard drive, or on the go. It is very similar to Dropbox, except with more free storage. Unfortunately, the Mac app isn't as feature rich as the Dropbox app, but for the price of free, its an excellent option.
Dropbox is a file storage and syncing service. It allows you to have access to all the files in your Dropbox, no matter what device you are using.
2GB of Dropbox for free, with subscriptions up to 100GB available.
Your files are always available from the secure Dropbox website.

Sparrow is truly one of the best email clients for the Mac. It has a very simple inbox with excellent support for GMail labels, as well as dropbox support for attachments. The interface is top notch, even rivaling Apple's own Mail app. Unfortunately, Sparrow is no longer developed except for minor bug updates. Despite that, it's still a great choice.
Postbox is another great alternative Mail client for Mac users. While its interface may not compare to the simplicity of Sparrow's, it has nothing to be ashamed of. Postbox's UI is probably still better than that of Apple's Mail app, and it has a strong set of features to go with it. Definitely give the trial a shot.
Todoist is one of the best 'to do' list apps out there. It has a robust set of features, as well as a set of companion apps for tablet, phone and the web.
The basic version of Todoist is free, with premium features available with an in app purchase.
