We updated our pick for the best Twitter client for the Mac

The world of third-party Twitter clients for the Mac has been abuzz recently thanks to the discontinuation of Twitter for Mac, a range of rule changes from Twitter the company, and a slew of major app updates.

Chief among those updates was Tweetbot 3 for Mac. Tweetbot was our original pick for the best Twitter app for the Mac. When Tweetbot 2 was released, we updated our pick to the latest Tapbots had to offer. For go-around three, we’re going to do the same thing and stick to our guns: Tweetbot, in its third iteration, remains the best Twitter client for the Mac.

Day One in Depth Video Course

Day One is, hands down, the best journaling app out there. And it is one of the most important apps I use. It has been a staple on all my devices since it first shipped in the App Store back in early 2011.

Over the years, I have used Day One to chronicle so many moments, photos, and memories of my life. From the births of my boys, to quitting my job of 10 years to venture out on my own; from figuring out life during stressful times when money was tight, to my wife’s and my 10-year anniversary trip.

Moreover, I also use Day One to track and manage the business and creative challenges I face.

Needless to say, this app plays a critical role in how I stay focused, productive, and creative every day. And that is why we hope to help you get the most out of this app as well.

Three apps we’re trying this week: June 11, 2018 »

There are many apps that grace the Mac and iOS App Stores that simply don’t get enough attention or admiration. Sometimes an app is so good at what it does, it becomes the default app for the task and is rarely questioned. Other times, a new app debuts in a given category and, while it shows promise, doesn’t quite live up to our pick for the best in that category.

We’d like to start highlighting some of those apps that we’ve started using recently or that simply don’t justify a major categorical review of their own. There are millions of apps to try out on any given day, so here are three we’re trying this week.
