Putting Order in the Chaos: Due

Putting Order in the Chaos: Due

We all need reminded of the tasks in our life. Life is way to hectic to keep up at times (well, most times). The problem is that being reminded once is not going to help many of us. I'm that guy who hits snooze on my alarm clock on repeat. If my clock could only take one alarm, I'd be in big trouble.

U-til-i-ty: Calcbot

I'd bet 90% of iOS users haven't considered replacing the calculator that comes with their iPhone.  After using Calcbot, those 90% should at least be using the free version of Calcbot.  The stock calculator only lets you do calculations in a one off fashion.  There is no account for keeping a running history, the ability to favorite calculations you use often, any scientific calculations, or the simple clarity provided by seeing the current equation for the answer.

Putting Order in the Chaos: Spark

Being the guy who is constantly on the prowl for ways to improve my workflows and productivity on my iPhone, I've been through several email apps. Some of my favorites were Inbox, Boxer, and MailBox. Problem was that every one I tried was still missing something. Email is a mess and can so easily become unwieldy and overwhelming to manage. Most of us do good to deal with it because its necessary. I've never thought it had to be that way and Spark may finally give me the tools to maximize email's usefulness.

Once you know how to take a screenshot, they inevitably start accumulating in your photo library. That leads to periodically combing back through the last several months to delete these or admitting screenshot bankruptcy (a.k.a. ignore them).

Putting Order in the Chaos: Todoist

If you are trying to bring order through software, then you have probably used many to do lists. Like Calendars, there are oodles of options in this area and what works for one won't work for the other. Many of the options either fill a certain niche or are so general that they cannot keep your attention.

Putting Order in the Chaos: Fantastical

One thing we can all agree about is the speed at which life flashes by these days. All of us have somewhere to be, something to remember, and the tension to keep it all duct taped together.  Our options for organizing this life and all the places we are pushed and pulled are overwhelming. At times too many options can actually be detrimental. This is a perfect case.

Life in the Nest

These days it seems like everything out there connects to the internet. Recently, Mr. Coffee released a coffee maker that will send you reminders and let you schedule brews from your iPhone. Last week the world's best tech companies gathered in Las Vegas for CES 2015 and all the buzz was about the so called Internet of Things (IoT).

Dark Sky - A New Kind of Weather

Every shiny new iPhone comes with a Weather app for a reason.  Weather is universal.  All of us benefit from having it at our fingertips.  Most of us settle for the stock app, but there is a better way.
