In other words, even though I already loved the idea of the app, I now had the perfect excuse for testing it out and writing it up. Many (if not most) of the apps …

Togethera: private family photo and video sharing done right (review)

For months I had been searching for an app that would allow me to share thoughts, photos and videos or a more personal nature with close family members.

Passible: the best password management app, hands-down (review)

Passwords are the bane of digital existence. They’re a pain to remember, they’re hackable and there’s way too many of them. Until I came across the  Passible (free to $9.99 per year for premium version), I hated all password managers more than the passwords they attempted to manage. Passible somehow manages to take a mundane function like storing passwords and …

There are a lot of scanning apps in the App Store, but there’s only one that’s my favorite: Scanner Pro by Readdle ($6.99). It’s also my preferred method for getting paper documents into Evernote. For both business and personal use, scanning paper documents is a huge deal. In general, turning documents from paper-based to pixel-based has many benefits. It allows …
