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.

Vhoto: a must-have photo/video app for more spontaneous moments

I recently had one of those ever-rarer experiences of seeing an app in the app store and having to try it immediately. In this case it was an awesome new photo/video app called Vhoto.

I’ve designed my fair share of websites over the last decade. In that time I’ve discovered that one of the trickiest parts of creating a website for a client is miscommunication.
