4K Video Downloader is another free video downloader available for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux platforms. One cool feature that separates it from other video downloaders is that it gives you an option to download subtitles if they’re available.
“Simple yet effective” – that’s what users usually comment on the application. Just copy the video URL and click the Paste Link button. You’ll be given options on the quality of video you want to download and if it has subtitles, it also gives you the option to download them in SRT format. The video formats vary from MP4, MKV, M4A, and FLV. You can download videos from Youtube, DailyMotion, Facebook, and Vimeo. Playlists can also be downloaded but if it’s more than 25 clips, you’ll have to get a license key. Still, not bad.
Other applications offered by 4K Download are MP3 extraction apps, slideshow maker, and Instagram image grabber.

Ever wonder if you could have a Ninite-like program that you can use for Macs? Get Mac Apps fills in that void of multiple apps installation for OS X.
All you have to do is visit the site, select the apps you want to install, copy the generated command, paste it in Terminal, and press Return to start the installation.
They’ve got the basic apps we usually install on new systems – Chrome, Firefox, VLC, Caffeine, Handbrake, Audacity. They also have Gimp, Libre Office, Text Wrangler, and Sublime Text 2 & 3.
I’m just not sure if running the same command would update the installed apps. If you’ve tested it already, you may share the result by commenting.
