Our favorite iPad writing app »
This week, Chris Gonzales takes a look at one of our favorite iPad writing apps, Editorial.
As a writer whose primary device has been an iPad for two and a half years, I have a lot of feelings about writing apps. And, it’s no secret that the iOS App Store is replete with great ones.
Our favorite keyboard for iPad »
The iPad is a great device for all sorts of work, but for many, typing on the display can be slow and error-prone. An external keyboard can solve these problems, but picking the best one is vital. Based on our research and hands-on testing, we think you should buy the Belkin Qode Ultimate Pro.
Steven Taylor’s Mac and iOS setup »
Steven Taylor runs a creative agency in Macclesfield, UK called adomedia where they do everything from branding and web apps to traditional design services.
I love how Steven explains our relationship between technology and “need.”
The amount of technology I can convince myself I need is astounding, so it’s a daily battle keeping it simple.

Quick Tip: Customize how Audio Messages work on Apple Watch »
When responding to a text message on Apple Watch, you are offered the option to use Default Replies, animated emoji, or dictation. By default, the dictation option will allow you to either send a speech-to-text transcription or an audio message. Audio messages were a new feature of iOS 8, but they never really took off for me. I’d just rather send a text message.
512 Pixels: Three months of Apple Watch »
Stephen Hackett, Editor-in-chief of The Sweet Setup and co-founder of Relay FM, wrote a review about Apple Watch after using it daily for several months. Many of the Apple Watch reviews that came out shortly after the new device’s debut lacked some of the insights that come with owning something for a longer period of time, and Stephen’s review offers that unique and helpful perspective for something that’s always on your wrist.
MacStories: My Favorite Mac »
TJ Luoma of MacStories offers an incredibly detailed and personal description of his journey from 15″ MacBook Pro to the brand new 12″ MacBook. You’ll see through reading this piece that TJ took a big jump as far as power and form factor are concerned, but these kinds of stories are really interesting to read. It’s good to ask yourself tough questions when you’re “absolutely sure” you “need” something.
