Daniel Würthele’s iPhone 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?

My name is Daniel Würthele and I currently attend school. Technology has always fascinated me and occupies an important place in my life. I’m espacially interested in all things that have to do with smartphones, apps, and their use cases in my daily life.

What iPhone do you have?

I have a gold, 64GB iPhone 6 with a red leather case from Apple. My wallpaper is taken from OS X Yosemite and can be found here.

What apps do you use the most, and why?

My most used app is probably my Twitter client, Tweetbot. For me, Twitter is a great way to catch up on the latest news and to discover exciting stories.

I like the ability to choose when and where I consume content, and for this, I’m using the read it later service Pocket on all my devices. Pocket gives me the ability to save web content for later reading, watching, or listening to, which makes my everyday life much more comfortable.

If I want to save an article for a longer peroid of time, I archive it in Pinboard. My Favorite Pinboard app for iOS is Pushpin, which has a nice design and many useful features.

Another great app is 1Password. This is one of the first apps I install on every new device because it handles all my passwords for every service I use. And with its deep iOS integration since iOS 8, I can now simply fill Logins with my fingerprint.

My favorite YouTube app is ProTube. This app, developed by Jonas Gessner, allows me to watch videos in 1080p, have background audio playback, and even download videos.

Other often used apps are Reeder to keep up with my RSS feeds, Google Inbox for my mails, Google Maps to navigate, and Documents, where I have access fo all files stored in Dropbox.

Which iPhone app could you not live without?

I couldn’t live without Wunderlist. In my opinion, Wunderlist is the best task management app you can get. [Editor’s note: It’s also our favorite pick for shared lists.] You can create lists, set reminders, and attach files to your tasks. The sync is great and adding tasks from other apps is a feature I really appreciate.
