The best third-party email app for iOS »
Email apps are highly personal. Everyone manages their email differently. For some, it’s a to-do list. For others, it’s a temporary holding place until emails are processed into a task management system. One thing is for sure: everyone with an iOS device probably uses email.
After looking at the wide range of third-party apps, Outlook is the most polished, and it’s the one we recommend as your first choice when moving away from the built-in iOS client.
With a focused inbox option, snooze options, a built-in calendar, and a wide range of support for various email systems, it’s simply the best.

How to email a complete list from Wunderlist »
Wunderlist is our favorite app for shared lists, and it’s something I use for all sorts of things, from simple lists to managing projects at work.

MacStories: Working on the iPad — One Year Later, Still My Favorite Computer »
Federico Viticci, of MacStories, wrote a follow-up piece a year after declaring the iPad his favorite computer. While the actual device might have changed in the past year, his love for the device and OS haven’t changed. It’s always interesting to explore the perspective who has made the switch to iOS completely, and each year it seems more like our future reality.
As the truest expression of iOS for iPad to date, the iPad Pro is a computer I enjoy working with, powered by apps that I can’t find anywhere else.
A Focus on Time »
Things like diligence, focus, priorities, saying no, time management, and the like are important. But why?
This quote by Benjamin Franklin pretty much sums it up for me:
“Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that’s the stuff life is made of.”
Focus, priorities, time management, etc… These are important because they’re about loving life.
As a reader of The Sweet Setup, we know that you care about things like time management and workflows. We think you’ll love this new class, A Focus on Time.
