The list mainly shows apps that are available on the Mac App Store, as this is the recommended way to install apps on your brand new Mac mini, MacBook Air or MacBook Pro with the Apple M1 chipset. However some vendors prefer to make their software only available as direct download from their web site, those are marked (Vendor download). Some native apps are available as beta versions today, however they only will appear here after they have been officially released.

Please note: With Rosetta 2 your new Mac has a compatibility layer to run any apps that have been created for the previous Intel chipset and most of the apps are running perfectly well on it. However, at the moment, there a some exceptions like e.g. Skype, Standard Notes that will require some adaptions from the vendor. In such cases you can try to install the iPad/iPhone version of the app from the Mac App Store. If it isn’t available there, you can use a tool like iMazing (now a native app, too) to get it from your iPhone to the Mac.
