5 apps that will make Windows users feel at home on a Mac

Liane Cassavoy | July 16, 2014
Switching to a Mac can be a challenge--even if your reliance on an Apple computer is only part time. And while the chasm between Windows and Mac OS computers and their devotees remains deep and wide, bridges between the two camps are more readily available than ever. These five apps can help even the most die-hard Windows user (like me!) feel comfortable and productive on a Mac.



A beautiful computer begs for elegant software, but it has to be more than just a pretty face if you're going to rely on it. Enter AirMail, a $2 email client for the Mac that serves as a worthy alternative to Apple's included Mail app. AirMail certainly is pretty, with a sleek interface that is similar enough to familiar Mail clients like Outlook to make you feel at home, yet far more attractive. AirMail can be a bit slow at times, but Gmail users, especially, will appreciate all that it offers.
