The AirPods experience is great overall, but let’s be honest. The way Apple’s earbuds work with a Mac is a pale imitation of the seamless functionality you get when using them with iPhones and iPads.

Luckily, an innovative Mac app called AirBuddy fixes that. And right now, you can save 20% on AirBuddy with code CYBER20.

Make AirPods work better with Mac

Simply install AirBuddy on your Mac, and prepare for your AirPods to work much the same way as they do with iOS devices.

“With AirBuddy, you can simply open your AirPods case next to your Mac and see the current status right away, just like how it works on your iPhone,” says AirBuddy developer Buddy Software. “A single click gets you connected, a swipe down lets you connect and change [listening modes]…. Fully customizable battery alerts help you keep track of your device’s batteries.”

AirBuddy lets you change things like output volume and microphone input easily, without a deep dive into your System Preferences. The affordable Mac app even gives you a breakdown of all nearby devices and provides battery usage details, among other nifty tricks.

A highly recommended Mac app for AirPods owners

“If you have AirPods, and a Mac, then you need AirBuddy,” Cult of Mac wrote when recommending the app. “Once set up, it runs invisibly, and makes using AirPods with your Mac as easy as using them with your iPhone or iPad.”

A MacStories reviewer also sang the app’s praises.

AirBuddy is one of those handy Mac utilities that you don’t know how you’ve lived without until after you’ve tried it,” they wrote.

Save on AirBuddy app for Mac

AirBuddy lets you enjoy all the comfort, convenience, portability and superb sound of AirPods on your Mac. Take advantage of this 20% off deal with the code CYBER20 and boost your Mac audio game to the next level.
