I’ve been sharing a few home screens lately to be honest they are already out of date, why? Well I don’t think it’s a good idea to have your social media apps on your main Home Screen page. Since moving them to the second page (or App Library if you’re on the iOS 14 beta)Continue reading “Move your social media apps to your second page”
2020 continues to throw stuff at us and for me another one that’s coming my way is losing my day job and starting to job hunt. With this comes more stress and apps to help with both my physical and mental wellbeing. I’ve realised that looking at my home screen now it’s a reflection ofContinue reading “An iPhone home screen with purpose”
I’m getting into using my iPad Pro for video now so got another one for you. Getting started with Things 3.
I’m available to help test iOS 14 apps and widgets if there are any developers looking for testers. Reach out to me via my contact page.
I’ve been blogging on and off since 2008 and over the years now I think back on it my workflow hasn’t really changed that much. I’ve tried lots of different workflows and apps but like back in the day where I would write using Safari and WordPress today I am doing the same but viaContinue reading “My iPad writing workflow (2020)”

My main reason for this was I wanted a system that offered An integrated Calendar A great user experience when using the now alwaysContinue reading “Thoughts on using Things 3 again”

I started curating my feed on my iPhone only. Once I was happy I then used the export option to save to myContinue reading “How I manage my RSS subscriptions manually across devices using NetNewsWire”
Another day, another warning for apps that use your clipboard. I trust Apollo but wonder why they are taking my clipboard at all. I think there’s info here that needs to be shared by the development community as to why they are using our clipboard. For me it’s a lack of understanding so I’m notContinue reading “Apps using your clipboard in iOS 14”
Lockne is a great little app that I can’t believe hasn’t already been done, it’s a really useful utility app that every iPhone user could do with. If you’re into changing up your wallpaper every 5 minutes (like me) then you need to check it out. Developed by Jonathan Ruiz this is an app thatContinue reading “Lockne, an app to help you create a great lock screen and wallpaper”
I should have learnt my lesson totally trusting my data to iCloud given my track record but the latest failing got me thinking about my password management habits. They are shocking to be honest, I’ve kept an Apple Note with some in (not written any down on paper) and relied on iCloud Keychain. As youContinue reading “Don’t use iCloud Keychain as a password manager”
