Is Evernote on the way out?

The past couple of days have seen a few stories about Evernote's performance. The company, not the app. It doesn't make for pleasant reading... Apparently, they've lost a worrying number of senior people and several key metrics can be, at best, described as 'stagnant'. And I'm not sure whether or not to be worried... I've ...

A plethora of note-taking apps

Despite my love of writing things down in lovely notebooks, I'm also a fan of electronic notes. This is due to a combination of fear that I'll lose important things written on paper and a (perceived) need to have access to anything I've ever written at any time or in any location. Judge me. But keeping ...

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 ...

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 ...

We need to talk about Evernote

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 ...

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 ...

I’m A5-ing it once again

After a previous post bemoaning the size of my A5 Original Filofax (I do have a life, honest), my new iPad insert for same has given it a new lease of life. Combining very practical A5-size paper for notes, scribbles and brainstorms, along with my iPad Mini for checking agenda, accessing Evernote and Omnifocus, this ...
