We’d also like to know your opinions about our picks and/or your picks this week. Please leave a comment below to chime in.
There are times I need to rapidly take notes that need to be turned into a task, sent to Evernote, or a have a multitude of other tasks performed on them. To save the day and assist me with all of my needs, in comes the great app Drafts. Drafts opens quickly and allows the user to enter notes and then, with just a single tap, perform prebuilt actions (ranging from sending the note OmniFocus and creating a task to tweeting the note you created) on the text. Drafts also allows the user to sync their notes between iOS devices and supports Markdown for all the writers amongst us. All in all, this app is opened a pelthora of times every day allowing me to jot down what is currently on my mind and then, when I have a breather, act upon it. Not bad for $3.99 for the iPhone version and $4.99 for the iPad App. It is worth every penny!
Analog(ue) podcast, RelayFM (Patrice)
"Why british people don't spell anything correctly and have "U"s where you don't need them" (Casey Liss)
If you’ve ever listened to a podcast released on the 5by5 network, chances are you’ve listened to Myke Hurley at some point. He’s “the british guy”, and in general fun to listen to. Recently, he and 5by5 parted ways allowing him to focus his attention on his new podcast network called RelayFM.
Now he’s back with a fun new set of shows, one of them being
Analog(ue), my pick for this week.
The show focuses on how it feels when putting something new in the world, how technology makes us feel (for the better or the worse) and how it changes/influences our lives.
A good chunk of the very first episode is devoted to the inception of RelayFM and Myke’s struggle with putting himself out there without knowing how people would perceive this step.
Dropbox Pro (Doc)
Dropbox is one of our favorite programs on the planet. For many Mac professional Dropbox is the first application installed on a new Mac. The free program has always been good but if you want to get serious about keeping your important data synced, backed up and accessible wherever you are we would always recommend Dropbox Pro.
Dropbox Pro wants to be the home for all your important docs, photos, videos or another files you need access to anywhere and/or want to fell great knowing they are safe.
As of last week recommending Dropbox Pro just got a lot easier as they increased the storage limits to 1TB for for the same low price of $10/month or $100/year. Along with the size bump Dropbox gave us some long desired additional sharing and security features like:
- Passwords for shared links
- View-only permissions for shared folders
- Expirations for shared links
- Remote wipe
If you are already a Dropbox Pro use you dont have to do anything just enjoy the upgrades. If you’re a Dropbox Basic user now is the perfect time to step up to Pro plan. If your not using Dropbox at all stop reading and get Dropbox Now
