OmniFocus 2 for iPad

OmniFocus is arguably the gold standard when it comes to professional-grade Mac and iOS task management software. The iPad app was just overhauled with a modern design and support for all of the latest iOS 8 features.

1Password 5 for iOS

As much as we’ve loved the iOS version of 1Password, it has always been crippled by the sandboxing Apple put in place to keep apps from talking to one another. With the release of iOS 8 and its new system share sheet, that is no longer a concern.

Transmit for iOS

In 2008, our editor Shawn Blanc wrote this about Transmit, the awesome file-transfer app for Mac: What sets Transmit apart, is that it works great for everyone: the single-blog publisher, to the large-scale website developer. Transmit’s interface and usability is clean, easy to understand and works without fail, time after time. And that’s just the beginning. Transmit is packed to the brim…

If you keep up with the web design world at all, you probably already know about The Manual, a design journal started by XOXO Fest cofounder Andy McMillan and with contributions from world-class designers like Frank Chimero and Ethan Marcotte.

Quotebook is the best way to capture your favorite quotes—whether they come from books, tweets, songs, movies, your kids, conference talks, or anywhere else.

Phone Clean for Mac — Free Up Space on iOS

I recently looked at my iPhone’s usage statistics and noticed Spotify was using 1.1 GB. For an app that is supposed to be about streaming music—I don’t download anything locally—that seemed like a lot. I’ve run into this situation before. Over time, Dropbox and Google Drive can grow to 800-900 MB without much effort. I used to deal with this by deleting…

Kingston Digital MobileLite Wireless Flash Reader

As much as I love my iPhone and iPad, their limited storage space makes traveling feel like a juggling act. Do I transfer this movie or that movie? Should I delete several podcasts to make room? Which games can I bear getting rid of? Forget all the data juggling and just get a Kingston MobileLite Wireless. This portable media reader can take…

SpeakerSlide

The SpeakerSlide is a Kickstarter project that reminds me of the SoundBender from a while back, but modernized for today’s iOS devices. It plugs into your Lightning port, placing a curved space directly over the device’s speaker so that its audio redirects to you rather than going sideways out into the air. No more cupping your hand over the speaker like an…
