We Updated Our Pick for the Best Email App for the Mac

We could go round and round the mulberry bush when it comes to email apps for the Mac these days. There will be some who swear by Apple’s own Mail app, others who need the ultimate customizability of an app like Airmail, and still others who say that email is terrible and use a different platform for communication instead.

It’s extremely difficult to find one email app that fits everyone’s needs.

However, we think Spark comes the closest to fitting as many of the wide-ranging email needs as possible.

Using FiLMiC Pro to Control Your iPhone or iPad Camera »

I said in my last post on LumaFusion that I could upgrade the camera software on my iPhone by using FiLMiC Pro, but that I hadn’t taken the step. Of course, the very day the post was published, I was frustrated with the built-in camera app in iOS. After some searching, I found out that FiLMiC Pro had the exact feature I needed. Needless to say, I purchased FiLMiC Pro Camera kit right away and have been very happy with it ever since.

How To Customize Control Center on iOS »

The Control Center on iOS has been customizable for some time now, and it’s a great place to trigger quick actions like starting a new note or making some calculations.

To get started, head to Settings → Control Center, and then tap Customize Controls. Not only can you include and exclude items, but you can also change the order too. I recommend moving the items you use most frequently to the bottom since this is easier to reach with your thumb.

Three Apps We’re Trying This Week: December 3, 2018 »

There are many apps that grace the Mac and iOS App Stores that simply don’t get enough attention or admiration. Sometimes an app is so good at what it does, it becomes the default app for the task and is rarely questioned. Sometimes a new app debuts in a given category and, while it shows promise, doesn’t quite live up to our pick for the best in that category.

There are millions of apps to try out on any given day, but this week we are trying Edison Mail, Kodex, and a Shortcut for grabbing images from a webpage.
