There are several hundred thousand apps in Apple’s App store.
But there are few real, must have gems.
I’m glad to inform you that Mactracker is one of those rare gems.
Mactracker is a great free app on the Mac App Store that provides details on everything you wanted to know about almost every Mac that’s Apple has launched over the last three decades.
The app provides details on processor, memory, storage, display, graphics, model introduction and discontinuation dates, original prices, a brief history of the product and more on Mac computers dating back to January 1984.
Macintosh, iMac, iBook, PowerBook, MacBook, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, Mac Pro, Mac Pro Server and MacMini, yes, the Mactracker app covers all of them.
It also has a feature called This Mac that provides key details about the Mac on which the app is installed.
Besides computers, Mactracker provides a wealth of information on new Apple products like iPhone, iPod, iPad, Apple TV, TimeCapsule and long obsolete devices like Newton PDAs, LaserWriter printers, QuickTake cameras and OneScanner.
If you’re a Mac fan like me, you’ll love to dig into the brief biographies of the various Apple products from years past.
I strongly recommend the free Mactracker app.
By the way, Mactracker is also available for the iPhone but I’ve checked it out only on my iMac.
