Icro For Micro.blog

I have been trying to escape social media for a long time now. I love being social and sharing things, but I don't want all the abuse and other issues that go with it. I went backwards and forwards with micro.blog a little while ago. Decided to try and build my own, but I've really…

Google Tasks Launched

Google have launched the latest in its suite of apps, the simply named Google tasks. This aims to make sure you get all of those tasks done you've been putting off (forgetting). It provides integration between Gmail and other Google services but unfortunately not much else. Google have clearly worked very hard in the blog…

Todist + Trello = Trelloist

Despite much buzz around Things of late, I have found myself falling back into using Todoist more and more. Not because of the design, not because it doesn’t do things many other apps do - but because of the open nature of the platform and the powerful API ability. One of the very best I…

The Shelf App Review

A shelf app is a very strange thing to take in. Until Federico Viticci published his iOS11 concept I hadn’t even considered the idea of needing one. He posed lots of ideas around universal drag and drop that Apple did actually build into the OS, and now this idea of a shelf to drag all…

Today’s Forecast Review

There is nothing more British than talking about the weather. Perhaps it’s our every changing climate, but for some reason it’s a national past time. Your daily knowledge of the incoming drizzle must be at Olympic level, so a good weather app is a must. There are quite a few out there, some good, some…
