I have been experimenting with using the built-in Notes app on iOS and macOS lately. I’ve found some unique capabilities that make it a pretty interesting project management app, in particular the ability on macOS to add links to files from the Finder, as well as drag in links to email messages and setup names as mailto hyperlinks.Continue reading “Project Management in Apple Notes”

Just a quick roundup of some new iPhone apps I’m liking:

Yahoo Weather – slick and to the point, with the right info presented cleanly
CamFind – impressive app that searches anything, based on photos.
Rockmelt – Flipboard news app competitor, allows for hiding articles and scrolling stories instead of flipping virtual pages
Since the recent update to Drafts with the expanded URL Scheme functionality, I’ve been monkeying around with nvALT plaintext journaling and note taking. There’s a cool browser extension for snagging text and webpages in plain text format and adding them as new notes to your nvALT folder.

1Keyboard is a virtual bluetooth keyboard application for Mac OS X that allows you to wirelessly connect to Bluetooth enabled devices such as your iPhone, iPad and Apple TV.

I’m always looking for more ways to use Drafts on my iPhone, as well as more ways to access it. I discovered a way to have access via the Notification Center list using Launch Center Pro. I doubt I’m the first to write about this, but thought I’d share anyways.
