Adam Mason’s iPhone X setup

Every week, we post a new interview with someone about what software they use on their Mac, iPhone, or iPad. We do these interviews because not only are they fun, but a glimpse into what tools someone uses and how they use those tools can spark our imagination and give us an idea or insight into how we can do things better.

New setup interviews are posted every Monday; follow us on RSS or Twitter to stay up to date.


Who are you and what do you do?

I’m Adam Mason, a Washington DC Wedding Photographer and storyteller. I use photography to tell stories of people and organizations around the world while promoting goodness, hope and joy. I’m also a former Apple retail employee!

What iPhone do you have?

Where can we find your wallpaper online?

What apps do you use the most, and why?

  • I use Instagram to promote my business and engage with those who are passionate about my work, as well as many potentioal clients.
  • Loseit for tracking calories and hopefully losing weight. It notifies me to remind me to track what I’ve eaten, and, after a few years, has almost every kind of food in its database.
  • HabitShare for keeping myself accountable when trying to form new habits.
  • Overcast for all of my podcast listening (I host a podcast called The Bearded Tog and listen to about 20-30 hours of audio content a week). One thing I love is creating a playlist with the most recent episodes from all my podcasts so I’m always up to date!
  • CalenGoo is my go-to calendar for making sure I’m not late or missing anything. Plus, it syncs with my Apple Watch.

Which app could you not live without?

This one is tough, but Evernote is the app I couldn’t live without. All of my ideas, processes, standards of procedure, and topic lists for blog content are in there. I’ve been an Evernote member since college (2007) and it’s been useful for a long time!

Custom Productivity Templates

We have a set of custom productivity templates that work well with the iPad app, GoodNotes. And if you want to try them out, we’ve put together a free guide that can help you.

We’ll show you…

  • How to create and save custom page templates in GoodNotes.
  • How to use those page templates to transform GoodNotes into your own productivity notebook (or any other type of notebook replacement).

Plus, we also have included a couple of our custom productivity templates for you to get started with. These templates are right out of our popular productivity course.

The custom templates and the guide are available for FREE to our email subscriber community. And you can get it right now. By joining the Sweet Setup community you’ll also get access to our other guides, early previews to big new reviews and workflow articles we are working on, weekly roundups of our best content, and more.
