The Apple ecosystem has no shortage of ways to share files. There are countless apps and services that aim to make this as easy as possible. With a lot of the articles we write here at The Sweet Setup, we are comparing apps and services that are virtually identical outside of user interface. With this category, that is not the case. These apps, while appearing similar, all have a different focus.
With a plethora of options, what is our favorite cloud service/app for file sharing? With an incredible feature set, active development, and a sustainable business model, Droplr is our favorite way to share files, make simple annotations, and track links.
Kyle’s pick for the app he can’t live without on his iPhone is FaceTime, and I’m sure many people feel the same way about this fantastic way to keep in touch with friends and relatives that don’t live nearby.
It may be surprising because it’s built-in, but FaceTime is an app I could not live without. I have a lot of long-distance friends and relatives, and most of my family lives down in Arizona. Being able to hear their voice and see their face with a few taps, FaceTime simply is ‘magical’, even if it is for family tech support. It’s way better than a phone call, and I could be on a FaceTime call for hours at a time with some of my friends.
This week, Bradley explains the benefits of using Do Not Disturb on iOS devices to cut down the amount of intrusive notifications that pop up during the day (and night).
As great as iOS devices are, they often become overloaded with vibrations, dings, and banners. Do Not Disturb allows you to regain control of when you want to be notified.
Do Not Disturb is actually one of my favorite iOS features. With group iMessages and push notifications, my iPhone can feel like it’s going to vibrate off the table sometimes. Do Not Disturb allows you to completely silence your iPhone for meetings, movies, etc.
We’d love to hear from you. Just fill out this form with some basic information and we’ll be in touch.
Christmas is right around the corner, and Tools & Toys has a great collection of gifts for friends and family that is sure to cover a wide range of tastes and needs. This isn’t just a list of interesting stuff that will create smiles on Christmas morning – each item is something that we use and can personally vouch for its value and usefulness.
Instead, we have put together a list with short personal reviews of few items which meet certain criteria: they are products we own and use; we personally vouch for their quality; and they are useful and enjoyable.
You may have heard a lot of things are on sale this week (and for the holiday season). We’ve listed a few of our own favorite items that can be had for a deal, yet are worthwhile even when they’re not on sale.
Mixers, weight scales, ice cubes, and more. Oh, and of course: cameras.
Speaking of all the Christmas shopping, you probably need an app for tracking all those incomping shipments to be sure you’re around when they arrive. Recently, we named Deliveries as our favorite app for tracking shipments. This suite of apps for Mac and iOS takes the frustration out of package tracking.
On iOS and OS X, instead of having to check multiple carriers multiple times, you can have one app that manages it all.
