Evernote for iOS: simplified!

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) ...

Add tasks to ToDoist from Slack

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 ...

Creating a reading list with IFTTT, Instapaper and ToDoist

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 ...

An excellent ToDoist update

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 ...

OmniFocus: about turn!

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 ...

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 ...

Still doing with ToDoist

This post, from over a year ago, has turned out to be one of the most popular on my blog. In it, I describe how in my move from iOS to Android, I was looking for a replacement for OmniFocus. After evaluating some options on the Google Play store, I opted for ToDoist. Well, a ...

Review: Knomad Mini Portable Organiser

I've been using the very lovely Knomad Mini Portable Organiser from Knomo for the last week. It's something I've had my eye on for some time and, after a good month on the work front, I decided to treat myself. What is it? It's built to carry an iPad Mini, along with the carious other ...

Mixing digital and paper…again

While out at Ryman's stocking up on home office supplies, I stumbled across this little beauty. It's a combined Filorax / iPad Air case and I snapped it up immediately. (My 20% off coupon, courtesy of @FrankDJS, made this decision a lot easier). It takes A5 Filofax paper and accessories, which fit into a completely ...
