The best WordPress client for macOS »

The best WordPress client for macOS

Over the years, WordPress’ backend has become much easier to use. I can log in to my website from any browser in the world to publish new articles, add content to pages, and upload media to share.

However, I’m a Mac user through and through. I spend most of my workday in front of a 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K display, and would rather use a rich, native macOS app than a web app.

Thankfully, there are several WordPress clients for the Mac. These apps allow me to write and publish articles directly from macOS without the need to fire up a browser. These applications won’t surface things like WordPress’ widget or menu settings, but should make publishing new content as frictionless as possible.

How to use Alfred as a clipboard manager »

There have been enough times in recent weeks that I wanted to easily swap back and forth between clipboard items that I decided to seek out something to help me with that. After asking on Twitter, multiple responses came back with an app I am very familiar with: Alfred (read our review).

MacStories: Stagehand Review — Living Platforms »

There’s been a lot of buzz about Stagehand this week, a game that looks like a typical platformer but is quite the opposite. It’s getting great reviews, and with the weekend right around the corner, it’s a great time to take some time to relax with a great new iOS game that will challenge and delight you.

Macworld: Reasons to be optimistic about the iPad’s future »

In the most recent earnings report from Apple, the data indicated that the iPad sales were still following a downward trend. While this data led some people to wonder if the iPad is doomed, Jason Snell (for Macworld) has some other interpretations about the iPad’s future.

I’m not saying the iPad will certainly be the device people will be using in 2025 to get their jobs done. But when I look at where Apple is today and project into the future, it’s what seems the most likely to grow into that device.

Despite sales data, the iPad is a wonderful and incredibly useful device. It’s exciting to think about how much it and iOS can grow in the next 5-8 years.
