Deciding to make a switch to new Macbook Air from an linux laptop

Recommended and mentioned products

  1. The missing package manager for macOS

    In terms of package management you natively only have the App Store and manually installing apps from the internet, which is rather limiting, especially for command line utilities. I would suggest looking into a third party package management system if you find yourself using a lot of third party apps frequently. I personally use nix along with home manager; there's also homebrew and macports.
  2. Online diagramming application

    For UI design, you have plenty of online options (Figma, draw.io, etc.), unless you mean actually creating the UI assets, in which case you have even more options (including GIMP and Inkscape).
