Click Meeter for your next online video meeting and organise your windows with Magnet [macOS]

Here are two really helpful apps which help me in my work online.

Meeter picks out video conferencing meetings scheduled in my Exchange and Google calendars, and lists them in the menubar – which I call up with a keystroke, typically 15 or 30 mins early for meetings I host.

I’ve set Meeter to present meetings links five mins early in case I forget to join a meeting I signed up for. With just a click, I’ve joined the meeting. That is typically on Zoom, but Meeter works for Webex, MS Teams and Google Meet as well, amongst others.


The second app has been critical during webinars – I typically have several widows open which I refer to, in addition to the video conferencing app. The Q&A window is on a separate separately, I look up references the speakers make on a web browser, I may be chatting with audience members on What’s App, and keep Notes open to take notes.

Magnet organises all my windows, again with keystrokes. I push windows around with keystrokes to various positions – left or right or top right or left two-thirds. It has been critical when I was using just my laptop screen, and is still very useful when use two screens during WFH.
