Writer’s block is terrible -- and it inevitably happens at the worst possible times. As you can imagine, the Mac|Life crew has our own struggles with this affliction from time to time, so we have lots of different strategies for working it out.
The Mac App Store certainly has made buying Mac software a convenient affair -- just a click and a password, and boom, there it is. But like the iOS App Store, it's starting to fill up fast. That's good news for you -- lots of choice -- but it also means that when you type in a keyword or open up a category, you're faced with multiple options.
We're here to help.
We put dozens of Mac App Store offerings through our ringer of a reviews process and settled on 20 diverse applications that all scored well and come with our recommendation. Even better? They're less than $20 a pop.

Hopefully these apps will get you out of your situation and into the zone--where words flow out of your fingers like water out of a hose. Free flowin'.
