1Password on Your Wrist »
I’ve been a fan of 1Password for years, originally diving into the app to manage all of the social logins for my clients when I worked at an advertising agency.
Since then, it’s proven to be invaluable for keeping my passwords secure, being a long-term repository for important information, and making it much easier to fill out forms on my Mac and iOS devices.
But one particular part of the services has a special place in my heart – 1Password for Apple Watch.
Bonus! One more thing…

Three Apps We’re Trying This Week: October 8, 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. Sometimes 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.
This week we tried out Chirp for Twitter, Better Day, and Pantone Studio.
