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 […]

Grammarly is an excellent free tool to help you write better.

Have you heard of Grammarly? Grammarly is a free (and paid) service that checks your writing for spelling and grammar mistakes. The best part is, it really works! I know the first thing a lot of people are going to say is that their operating system has spelling and grammar check too. It’s true, they […]

Why do we wear fitness trackers on our wrist?

I’ve been struggling with fitness trackers recently trying to figure out which ones are accurate. Turns out the issue isn’t always with the trackers, but where we wear them. Why do we wear them on our wrist? Who’s bright idea was it to track steps by putting something on your arm? If your fitness tracker […]

My first week with the Xiaomi Mi Band.

After I killed my FitBit, I decided try out the Xiaomi Mi Band. I’ve only had it for a week, but my first impressions are that it’s a great tracker at an extremely cheap price. The setup of the Mi Band was pretty simple. Granted, it did arrive with a dead battery so I charged […]

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 […]

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, […]

Why I left DigitalOcean’s cheap hosting.

  When I first heard about DigitalOcean I was excited as the price point was so low and the servers so nice. I knew I’d have to learn some things as I go, but I was happy to take it on. Turns out, I don’t have the time to learn all the things I need to […]

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 […]

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 […]
