The adjustment from iOS to Android isn’t as significant as it used to be. As I said previously, Android is now a lot more polished as an OS and there are so many more cross-platform apps available.
One of the big differences that still exists between the two platforms is the flexibility of the Android interface. You can choose your own launcher, layout, colours, default apps and a ton of other settings that iOS keeps firmly under lock and key.
You could spend far too much time on setting all this up, but I’ve just had a look at the apps I use the most and organised them into some on-screen folders under what I think is a logical categorisation.
(If you have no interest in reading about other people’s mobile phone settings, you may as well stop reading at this point. And frankly, what sane person would blame you.) Continue reading
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 […]
Is everyone leaving Evernote? Seriously. I have to ask.
I’ve noticed a slightly disturbing trend in the tech news: the growing number of destinations available for exported Evernote content.
First, there was Apple – you can import Evernote content into the Apple Notes app. Next came Microsoft, with a (PC-only) importer for their OneNote app. And this morning, I read on Twitter that DayOne are considering an importer too!
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 […]
My favourite journalling app for the Mac and iOS is getting an update! In the next few weeks, the guys at Bloom are going to release a 2.0 update for Day One which has been in development for several years. This is going to include some handy bits of functionality like adding several photos to a […]
I got my Apple Watch just over eight months ago. After the initial excitement died down, it continued to be a useful addition to my ongoing collection of gadgetry. However, not all tech continues to deliver, especially after the original excitement and glee has subsided. Sometimes, as soon as the product fails to live up […]
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 […]
It’s been a while now, but I’ve finally moved on from ToDoist and gone back to using OmniFocus. Well, I say ‘gone back’, but the app has evolved so much since I last used it, it’s almost unrecognisable. My move from ToDoist isn’t a slight against that app – I still stand by everything I’ve […]
Those who know me in real life know I’m something of an Evernote fan. An Evernote evangelist, even. I’ve used the app for years and spent quite some time singing its praises on this blog and elsewhere. Over the years, Evernote has helped me get more organised when traveling for business; it has helped me […]
