Apple Music isn’t for me; yet.

I tried out Apple Music’s three-month trial and figured out it’s not for me at this time. The best part about Apple Music is being able to ask Siri to play anything. Having Apple Music right at your finger tips is fantastic. It’s also great when I can download any song and add it to […]

Clean up the multiple drafts that Apple’s Mail app creates in Gmail.

If you use Apple’s Mail with Gmail, you realize that every time Mail autosaves a draft, Gmail creates a new draft. Even after the message has been sent, Gmail thinks you have lots of drafts. I haven’t found a good way to stop this but I have found an easy way to clean it up. […]

Prices for products offered via the Services may change […]

Fantastical 2 is a full featured Mac Calendar app including Google Hangouts links.

I finally broke down and got Fantastical 2. Yes, Apple’s calendar application is nice, but it’s also limited. I was tired of trying to utilize may different apps to get all the features that Fantastical provides out of the box. Plus Fantastical does it beautifully. One of the biggest advantages of Fantastical for me is that […]

My Evernote Replacement is Evernote & Notes

I’ve been trying different Mac apps to come up with an Evernote replacement since they’re moving to a more restrictive free plan. However, I’m kind of just ending back up at Evernote. I mainly use Evernote for work related things. However, I have quite a few home things in there too. What I realized is […]

7 Desktop Google Hangouts Apps for the Mac

I’ve been on the lookout for a Google Hangouts desktop app for the Mac and there are actually few decent choices out there. First off, I don’t want to run a Chrome extension and I don’t want to have to keep Gmail open in the background. That works for some, but it’s either out of sight, […]
