We updated our review of the best calendar app for the iPhone

It (almost) goes without being said: Fantastical 2 remains our pick for the best calendar app for the iPhone. Fantastical 2 for iPhone has always been one of our favorite iPhone apps here at The Sweet Setup, thanks to its weekly date ticker, its simple and intuitive design, and its class-defining natural language parsing capabilities.

The Complete Guide to Managing Tasks in Things (Video)

If you struggle to keep up with all your tasks, we can show you some organization tips that may help you.

We put together a video that shows you everything you need to know about a task in Things:

  • The difference between start dates and due dates and how to use them effectively.
  • How to set up reminders so you never forget an important task again.
  • How to use checklists for tasks that require more than one step.
  • How to configure daily, weekly, monthly, or even annual repeating tasks.
  • And more…

You don’t have to use any of these things in your tasks if you don’t want to. But knowing what they are and how they all work will help you be more organized, save time, and ensure you are using Things in the way that suits you best.

This video is something we have made available for free to our email subscriber community. You can get it right now. By joining the Sweet Setup community you’ll also get access to other guides, early previews to big new reviews and workflow articles we are working on, weekly roundups of our best content, and more.

The Twelve South PencilSnap »

Aside from Apple’s own leather sleeve with a built-in Pencil holder, there’s no good way of toting that Pencil around. Actual, real pencils (you know, the ones with lead in them) can be thrown into a bag, lost, chewed on, stepped on, or snapped in half, and you’re good to go for your next art assignment. But the Apple Pencil? That’s a lot of tech to snap in two at the bottom of your bag.

Enter PencilSnap, one of Twelve South’s newest accessories for the iPad and the Apple Pencil. PencilSnap is designed to keep your Pencil available at all times, while still looking sharp.

Window management for macOS in 2018 »

On a recent run, I was listening to one of my favorite podcasters, Drew Coffman, talk about how iOS is so much more pleasing than macOS when it comes to organizing your workspace.

It wasn’t the focus for the episode, but I couldn’t help but be surprised about how the two hosts described managing applications and windows on an Apple desktop computer. My surprise was not because of the issue itself (we’ve all pressed the green traffic light planning to expand the window and gone full screen, or accidentally minimized an app to the dock), but because Drew and Jon seemed unaware of some of the excellent options available to address this issue.

How to share your entire photo library with Google Photos »

While we prefer iCloud and Apple Photos for photo management, Google Photos does have it beat in one key area: sharing your entire library with someone. This is an area that Apple hasn’t tackled just yet.

If you want to share your entire library with someone (like a spouse/partner), Google makes it easy.

Last week, 1Password released the first beta of 1Password 7. So what’s new? Read on to find out.

Scanbot, the best scanning app for iOS, was updated to version 7 earlier this week. We’ve been using Scanbot since version 1, and it has been a continual string of ace updates.
