I mentioned previously that I recently picked up one of Moleskine’s Evernote notebooks – long after they were first introduced, so I’m not blazing any trails in this area! Essentially, these notebooks are created with the note-taking app in mind, allowing you to scan them into the app with your iPhone’s camera. After a week of […]

Ah. I’ve never had the opportunity to use this particular sarcastic comeback in real life, but it occurred to me this was what motivated me to trial Moleskine’s Evernote notebook: the ability to accurately record your notes from the page to the digital. Because they’ll last longer. Now, I’m pretty confident you don’t absolutely need to […]

I’ve only spent a few minutes toying with the new version of Evernote for iOS, but I have to say I’m impressed. This newest version (Evernote 8.0) seems to be a complete rebuild of the app on iPhone and iPad and is a big step forward. For me (and others, if you simply google it) […]

You may recall I got very excited by a start-up called Postach.io come time ago. Simply put, their USP was taking your simple Evernote notes and turning them into a simple blog. Just tag a note as ‘published’ and it appeared as a new blog post.

A nice integration of Slack and ToDoist – both excellent tools! You can now add tasks to ToDoist straight from Slack. As I spend a lot of my working day messaging colleagues from within Slack, I’m definitely going to be trying this out. Check out the short video below for the (very simple) details on how […]

I’m a big fan of both Instapaper – a great tool for saving interesting reading materials for offline reading later – and IFTTT, the system that allows you to connect your various online accounts and create magical automated workflows. And, as any reader of this blog knows, I love me some ToDoist action. Lately, I realised […]

The guys over at the Mac Power Users podcast spent a while reviewing the various options we iOS users have when it comes to Notes apps. The podcast covers the pros and cons of the popular apps, including: Apple Notes, Evernote, OneNote and just using plain text files (!!). You can listen to the notes […]

The latest update to my task management app of choice – ToDoist – has brought with it something I’ve craved since the introduction of 3D Touch to the iPhone: adding new tasks via force touch. This update might sound like a small improvement, but it’s something I’ve wanted for a while. I’ll admit I’ve been force-touching […]

Only a few weeks ago, I wrote about how much I was enjoying my return to OmniFocus. Yet today, I find myself back using ToDoist. If I’m honest, the OmniFocus experiment only lasted a couple of weeks. What’s wrong with OmniFocus? Nothing. It’s a superb app. But after using it intensively for work and personal […]
