Testing the WordPress Mac App

I have to say that the WordPress Mac app is pretty nice, but it’s also the same as going to and logging in. Seems like it’s mainly a fancy stand alone browser. It’s got a nice clean interface, works quickly, and does a great job at reducing clutter. The only big issue I see at […]

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 […]

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, […]

Google, please stop randomly logging me out of Gmail!

Why Google?! Why do you feel that logging me out of Gmail randomly is a good idea? Especially when I’m in the middle of an email. To make it worse, you tell me you can’t save the draft but you try to automatically redirect me to the login screen which means I’m going to lose […]

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 […]
