BQ&A: Patrick Rhone Of 'Minimal Mac' On Writing, His New Newsletter, Minimalism, His Next Book, And More — BitQuill

This was a fun one to do. See where I do most of my writing these days! See current shots of my iPhone Homescreen and Mac Desktop! See the me looking like I’m praying while leaning against a brick wall mural by some guy I don’t even know!

We want to focus, dive deep, and read with dedication. So we built a reddit client for iPad.

#iPadOnly - by Augusto Pinaud and Michael Sliwinski

The first real post-PC book How to use only your iPad to work, play and everything in between.

Have only had a chance to browse this but looks great so far. Especially good for new users and for those looking to do even more with their iPad.

Income.io is a great new app for iPad to track income and expenses. Either for one person or the whole family. 
One of the main reasons for minimalism and simplicity in the first place is to reduce waste and needles spending. We often don’t even realize how quickly small purchases can add up to big money or how much of our income goes to things we can do without. One of the best ways to see where your money is coming and going is to track it and, once informed, eliminate anything that you do not really need.
Well, income.io is a great app for doing just that. It is simple to use, gives you just the information you need to make smart choices, puts the emphasis on savings, and has a fair bit of whimsy to make it fun. 
The best part is that income.io is free. It will not put a dent in your finances to start saving money today. There are some in-app purchases to give you some great additional features but all the basics I have described above are free to use. Therefore, you have no excuse not to give it a shot.
Download it for free today! You won’t be disappointed.

Status Board by Panic came out a while ago but I failed to mention it here. What is it?:

You’ve got data. The news. Your calendar. Active projects and e-mail queues. Sales totals and bug counts. Your data isn’t going away. Let’s make data beautiful.
Status Board takes your data and gives it meaning. Use the easy built-in panels. Or massage your data for our Graph and Table panels. It’s going to be awesome.

The Writer’s iPad is an ebook for writers who want to get the most out of their iPads. It doesn’t matter if you’re writing novels, articles, games, technical literature, screenplays, or even blog posts, this one’s for you!

As one who has written a book on an iPad, and still does a ton of my writing on one, I feel qualified enough to be able to vouch for this one. It is a pretty good overview of the tools, methods, and advantages of using the iPad as a serious writing tool. Worth checking out.

Textastic is an innovative and more than capable of handling your coding needs. Some really innovative stuff going on here like that navigation doodad (not sure what to call it). 

Though there are now iPhone and Mac versions, it was created for the iPad first.

I failed to mention that Basil for iPad got a nice update recently. Added was support for importing and exporting from Dropbox, pictures, notes, and the ability to check off ingredients as you go. A very nice update to an already nice cooking app. If making food is your thing then you need this.
