I use REUNION, a program specifically for Mac that I have had for 20+ years and find it does everything I need. The company also offers great support.

Reunion for the Macintosh. Easy to get started, prints great reports and charts. For more advanced usage can share data with other Macs and companion apps on the iPhone and iPad.

Ditto. Reunion for Mac is reliable, well supported and works with almost any website and software I have
 encountered in the last 25 years or so.

For me, the way the program looks affects how I interact with it and how I use it.
I have used Reunion for years and I like it very much.
Reunion, RootsMagic, MacFamilyTree have demo versions to try.
Family Tree Maker is another option, but i can't find a link for a demo version.
How easily can you find your way around, add records, attach files, make charts?
How are the help files? Is there online or telephone support?
Commercial software tends to be more maintained and may have better support.
Also consider is the cost of the software over time.
Reunion costs $99.
As the software is revised and new features added, you pay for upgrades-$49.95.
You don't have to upgrade, but it is something to consider when you evaluate your options.
In the time I've owned the software, I've paid for at least 3 upgrades.

I have been using Reunion since at least the early '90’s. maybe even in the ‘80s and have been very satisfied with it and its support.

I have been using "iFamily for Mac" for several years.  Excellent program.

Roots Magic also has a Mac version.  (I am a PC person married to a Mac person).  Roots Magic also has a free version that you can start with, and then if you like it you can upgrade to the paid version without losing any data.  I have evaluated their PC Roots Magic Essentials - and can tell you that some things like descendants charts are only in the paid version - but you can certainly start with the free version.  Family Tree Maker also has a Mac version but it is not free.
