Cheers, Editorially. Now what? Β»

Editorially shut down at the end of May, and we’re still looking for a replacement. We outline what made Editorially so great and what we are looking (and hoping) for in a replacement. We also take a look at some of the leading alternatives to Editorially for the collaborative writing and editing process.

Long story short, Google Docs is what we’re using for now, but it’s nowhere near as delightful and easy to use as Editorially.

Joe Caiati’s sweet iPhone setup Β»

This week, we take a look at Joe Caiati’s sweet iPhone setup. Joe is an Apple technician working in lower Manhattan as well as a writer for his own blog and others.

Joe’s setup is clean and favors a lot of our picks and favorite apps. Thanks for sharing your setup with us, Joe!

Apple stops development of Aperture Β»

Apple says they will be discontinuing their professional-grade photo-editing app, Aperture. And replacing both it and iPhoto with a new Photos app on OS X Yosemite. As photograph enthusiasts, we heartily recommend Lightroom as the best photo-editing app for the Mac.

Noteworthy link: New accessibility features in iOS 8 Β»

Steven Aquino wrote a rundown of accessibility features on iOS for The Sweet Setup back in February, but this past week he also wrote a great article for MacStories that outlines accessibility in iOS 8.

There are numerous additions to iOS accessibility functionality, and Steven makes a great case of explaining these features and why they’re so important to iOS as a whole.
