Grigory Antisperov’s iOS setup »
Grigory Antsiperov is a first year Economics student at Moscow State University who uses iOS for work and play.
I start my day with The Economist Espresso. It’s important for me to be well-informed on the current economic situation. I’ve tried a lot of RSS apps and finally decided on Reeder. I use it not to read, but to save interesting articles to Pocket.

Quick Tip: Manually create a backup of your Health.app data »
The data from Health.app used to be something I didn’t think about too much. Once I got Apple Watch, that all changed. I’m feeding a ton of exercise data into it and also calorie data from MyFitnessPal. This data is backed up to iCloud and synced between devices. If you’re not using iCloud, you can back up your Health app data with iTunes if you select “Encrypt iPhone backup” in the Summary tab.
Apple Music is here »
Apple Music debuted this week with a new version of iOS. With an industry-first move, Apple gives users a free three-month trial to test out their music ecosystem, so there’s been much written about it over the past few days. Regardless of what the critics may say, there’s really no reason not to try it out for yourself.
Federico Viticci (MacStories) also wrote some quick notes on migrating from Beats to Apple Music now that Beats is being deprecated. So, enjoy the long weekend with some awesome jams, courtesy of Apple.
