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 …

Scanner Pro app review: quick, easy iPhone scanning that integrates with Evernote

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.
