AirPods are made to move, but what if you just need a soundtrack to keep you focused at the work desk? Ironically, it's been harder to connect and play music from your Mac than it is from your iPhone.

Not anymore. AirBuddy does all the legwork of pairing your AirPods to the music library on your Mac device, all without having to open your settings. After the initial setup, you can just crack open your AirPod case and have it be recognized on your screen. From there, you can start playing music or podcasts with a simple click.

And that's not all: It provides a single hub for all your connected devices, including your Magic Mouse, keyboard, and trackpad. You can see battery usage for all these peripherals easily and create shortcuts for your preferred settings, all without interrupting your workflow or having to connect to two devices at once.

Try it out for yourself, AirPod users: Macworld readers can now get lifetime access to AirBuddy for $8.99, down $10 from the original MSRP.
