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!
Editorial is a wonderful new plaintext based Markdown editor for iPad with a ton of innovative features. Includes Inline Markdown Preview, built in browser, customizable workflows, Dropbox support, and much, much, more. Most of it without getting in your way. Really nice app.
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.
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.
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.
