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.
Digitizing and organizing your receipts »
It’s tax season here in the United States, and one of the many ways we spend February is gathering receipts, W2s, and 1099s and sending them to an accountant.
Bradley developed a system a few years ago for organizing this information that makes this process a lot easier for him and his accountant. If you don’t have a system, you are probably scrambling around trying to find all the information at this very moment. While we can’t help you with that process for this year, we can offer you some tips for the 2017 tax season. It’s not too late to start!

How to allow individual contacts to bypass Do Not Disturb in iOS 10 »
One of the new features of iOS 10 is Emergency Bypass. I am a
big huge fan of Do Not Disturb on iOS, and Emergency Bypass makes it that much better. I first heard about this feature from Katie Floyd, and it’s something I immediately activated for a few people.
MacStories: Working from an iPhone »
Getting work done from an iPad is a fairly common topic these days, but there’s not a lot of focus on working from an iPhone. Ryan Christoffel (MacStories) wrote about how he uses his iPhone for getting work done when his iPad or Mac are nowhere near, and it’s really a compelling story for becoming more proficient with the most portable computer available today. Sure, it’s probably less efficient in ways, but it’s also the only device you can really use while using one hand to hold a baby and the other to work.
