App Recommendation: CopyFeed

Every so often, I recommend an app that I think belongs on anyone’s iPhone or Mac. Today I’m recommending CopyFeed, the best clipboard manager for iOS that I’ve ever used. There are many clipboard managers out there, but CopyFeed stripped away everything to its bare essence to create an incredibly fast and easy way to manager multiple clips. Continue reading

Watchscreen: Binyamin Goldman, journalist and CEO of BZG, Inc.

In this watchscreen series, I ask someone to share their watchscreen, examining how they’re using Apple Watch, what apps are useful, and any tips or tricks they have. This week, I’ve asked Binyamin Goldman (Twitter, Blog) to share his screen.

Binyamin is a technology journalist who writes for WatchAware,  whose articles have been featured by The Verge, and who is behind the Apple In series on Medium. He’s also the founder & CEO of BZG, Inc, an app development company behind apps like Coherence. I’ve enjoyed reading his thoughts and think you will as well!

So, Binyamin, show us your watchscreen! Continue reading

App Recommendation: Overcast podcast player

OvercastEvery so often, I recommend an app that I think belongs on anyone’s iPhone or Apple Watch. Today I’m recommending Overcast, the hands-down best podcast player I’ve ever seen or used. For years, I had used Apple’s podcast player and was relatively happy with it. But as I listened to more podcasts and the syncing got increasingly worse, I looked for another player–and I am so glad I did because of how good it is. Continue reading

App Recommendation: Due

Recommended App: Due

Each week, I want to recommend an app that I think belongs on anyone’s iPhone or Apple Watch. Today I’m recommending Due, the best timer/reminder iPhone & Apple Watch app out there. If you have repeating reminders of activities, Due is a far superior experience to the standard Reminders app. Not only Due has a fantastic Watch app (whereas Apple doesn’t), but it has terrific and customizable snoozing settings.

Recommended App: World Time Widget

This week, I’m recommending World Time Widget, made by Lewis Smith. If you’re like me, you know and interact with people across multiple time zones. Coordinating meetings and calls with different time zones is a pain, especially if the calls are international. Then, just when I feel like I’m used to the time zones, Daylight Savings Time starts/ends and I have to remember which states and which countries shifted, which didn’t, and I have to relearn it all over again. Ick. I realized I was spending valuable mental energy trying to figure this stuff out and why not get an app for that? Rather than an app I have to open up, what if there was an app that put that info in a Today widget so it was always available with one swipe? Enter World Time Widget, a dead-simple app that solved this problem for me. Continue reading
