Looking for a Mailbox alternative? How about Mail with Addons?

Mailbox was a great app for those who really liked it, however it unfortunately is entering its end of life. Maybe someone will pick it up, but lets not count on that. Instead, we’re searching for alternatives. One might be Mail, with some addons. Mail, by default, works well will Google, has swipe actions, and […]

Stocard makes Apple’s Wallet (Passbook) better by adding your rewards cards.

I’m a fan of Apple’s Wallet (previously Passbook) but it’s really limited for me. It’s not easy to add a card and it’s not compatible with every rewards card for some odd reason. But, that’s where Stocard comes in. Stocard comes pre-programmed with lots of rewards cards and you just have to find your card […]

Apple’s Low Power Mode in iOS 9 is Amazing

Apple has a Low Power Mode in iOS 9 and it’s fantastic. It temporary reduces your phones power consumption when enabled. It won’t check for new mail, disables background app refresh, disables automatic downloads, and reduces some visual effects. Not only will it save your battery, but it’ll also charge your phone faster. To enable […]

Upgraded to El Capitan and it went pretty well.

Installed El Capitan on my on my home Mac Mini and I’m loving it. The biggest thing I notice, sadly, is the new beach ball. It’s much nicer. Did we get this in Yosemite? I don’t think so. Pinned tabs in Safari are also nice. I get that their very late to the game on […]

No content blocker on iOS? Use Reader View to get past ads.

Content blockers are all over the news right now, but if you don’t have an iPhone 5s or newer, you’re stuck with ads. However, you can get around them with Reader View. Reader View has been around since iOS 7 and it works on most sites. All you have to do is tap the icon […]

Safari isn’t the new Internet Explorer, Google Chrome is.

There have been discussions recently that badmouth Safari for being a bit behind on web technologies. I agree that Safari needs a bit more focus, but that doesn’t make it the new Internet Explorer. If anyone is, it’s Google Chrome. Now I’m not saying that Chrome is a bad browser. It’s a really good browser, […]

Kiwi vs MailPlane vs Your Browser for Gmail on the Mac

I’m kind of a sucker for Gmail apps. I really like Gmail, but I also like the look and feel of a desktop app. That’s when Kiwi for Gmail (formerly Gmail for Mac) was launched on Kickstarter, I was quick to jump in. I was hoping for something amazing, but I got something good instead. Kiwi […]

My love affair with wifi is unstable.

I always thought that having wireless would be the end of all our networking issues. I mean we have no cords to run so it’s gotta be better. Right?! Sadly no. Now that we’re in a new house I’ve been struggling as to where to put the router to get the best signal. I’ve been […]

SimCity BuildIt Is As Amazing As I Remember

Back in the late 90s early 00s I remember playing SimCity. I spent hours building my cities and watching them get distorted by fire, tornadoes, and aliens. Then yesterday, I downloaded SimCity BuildIt and I’m addicted once again. SimCity BuildIt is available on iOS and Android and it’s pretty much the same game as I remember, […]

How To Mass Delete iOS Music

I’ve got iTunes Match turned on and every now and then I want to remove a bunch of music from my iPhone. I’m not talking about what’s in iCloud, but what’s been downloaded onto my phone. Most places say that you can only do it one song at a time. I’ve been there, spending hours trying […]
