Journaling With Day One Review

I’ve been toying with the idea of journaling for a long time. I’ve started jotting things down several times, but never really got the hang of it. Although I liked the idea of having a physical diary of my thoughts, I was always worried it wouldn’t stay personal. So a... [Read More]

RememBear- Password Manager With Personality

The creators of TunnelBear have launched a new app to try and make Password Managers more fun and user friendly. RememBear aims to boost the levels of password manager usage... [Read More]

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... [Read More]

Using iOS11 Apple Notes app to write

Sure enough, just after deciding that my workflow of using Bear and Ulysses to write all of my content was pretty much perfect - I’ve changed again. For the past week I have been exploring using Apple Notes instead of Bear now that iOS11 is about to drop, and it... [Read More]

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... [Read More]

Bear and Ulysses

If you have read a few posts on my blog, you will know I have a soft spot for productivity apps, ever searching for the best thing. Well I used to also do that with writing apps, my devices have gone through a slew of writing apps over the last... [Read More]

Zoho Notebook Review

There can’t be many iOS or Mac app for note taking that I still haven’t tried. As soon as I’ve reviewed an app, gone through all the setting up process and made a choice to switch, I start looking around for other apps. I have a major fear of missing... [Read More]

Google Keep as a writing tool

I’m starting to think I have a problem, I just can’t leave things alone. Once I find a great app that does what I need, I write the review and then start looking at other options. Days after finding Bear to write everything from short notes to full posts I... [Read More]

Bear: The Serious Notes App

Notes apps are a strange thing to review. Everyone already has one built into iOS, and the vast majority of people will never look anywhere else. I was one of those people until I was able to delete first party apps, and much like replacing reminders with Todoist - I’ve... [Read More]

Todoist- My New App to Get Things Done

For as long as I can remember I’ve had a weird draw to organising things. It started with stationary and folders, and in the digital age expanded into spreadsheets and lists. I consider myself an organised person - yet one app has improved this further, Todoist. I’m not even going... [Read More]

Healthface - An Uncomplicated Apple Watch Complication

I held out as long as I could, but I have now caved and bought a Series 2 Apple Watch. Not because it is anything revolutionary, not because I accidentally killed my original version (although I kinda did) but because health and fitness has become so important to me I... [Read More]

Strava Review - the Next Level in Exercise Motivation

Well, it’s February, still the time of year that packs out the gyms, every shop is trying to sell you gear to get you active, and all the exercise companions appear. There is no reason to bother with all the new apps and gadgets as there is a reasonably old... [Read More]
