If Product Hunt Was Just For Apps…

Product Hunt is awesome. But what if there was a Product Hunt that was, and always would be, exclusively focused on apps; a place where non-app “clutter” didn’t exist? What if the site was built for the masses who USE tech products, rather than the great folks that MAKE them? What if being a curator (deciding which […]

These Red Apps Keep You Well Read

I’m starting to wonder whether or not some smart developers behind great reading apps choose the color red for their icons, interfaces and general branding on purpose (red = read?). On my iPhone, at least, every app I use to get some sort of reading done is red with the exceptions of iBooks and Yahoo’s […]

10 ways to discover the best new apps

Did you know that there are WAY more apps that are released every week than what you see featured in Apple’s App Store or Google Play? To be sure, featured apps are probably the best of the best recently released apps, but there are so many other great apps out there just waiting to be […]

15 new tools for app developers

Awhile back I wrote 100 terrific tools for coders and developers. It was a big hit—the day it was published became DailyTekk’s highest traffic day ever. That was, of course, because it was featured on the homepage of Hacker News (thank you to whoever submitted it!). More recently, a guest author contributed a  list of 100 […]

Strides habit tracking app review: it works

We all want to be better people. There’s no question about that. But can an app really help make that happen? I’ve recently tested an app that can, at least incrementally, help people improve. It’s called Strides ($3.99), it’s a goal and habit tracker and it’s one of the top paid apps in the App […]

Horizon: shoot perfectly horizontal video every time (review)

Horizon ($1.99)—an iPhone app that can [highlight]ensure you’re filming only horizontal videos[/highlight] despite how you may be holding the phone—has been around for awhile already, but recently came out with an update. In other words, even though I already loved the idea of the app, I now had the perfect excuse for testing it out […]

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. My search started with Path and ended with Togethera. Path, and a number of additional apps I tried, just weren’t private enough and/or didn’t have the feature […]

Theneeds app adds DailyTekk to technology category

Today I’m excited to announce that DailyTekk content will be showing up in a great new app called Theneeds, a free service that helps people find interesting news, articles, videos, social posts and more, around their interests. There are a few things I like about Theneeds that set it apart from other apps. Before you […]

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 [highlight style=”dark”]simple, secure and design-driven password management solution[/highlight] Passible (free to $9.99 per year for premium version), I hated all password managers more than the passwords they attempted to manage.

Boxer email app: like upgrading your email to first-class (review)

[dropcap]I[/dropcap]’ve been wanting to try Boxer ($4.99) for quite some time. It’s just a shame it took me this long to get it installed because I’ve really grown fond of it. It’s the email app that makes me feel like I’ve got everything under control. First things first. Let’s talk design. There are many, many email […]

Tinker app review: duration-based goals that really do motivate

You and I have something in common: we could both benefit from being more productive. Lately I’ve been testing out an app called Tinker ($0.99) which provides a simple way to create duration-based goals to get more done.

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. For both business and personal use, scanning paper documents is a huge deal. In general, turning documents from paper-based to pixel-based […]

Dark Sky: an iPhone weather app you’ll want to use (review)

I’m a sucker for a great weather app which is why I’m glad I downloaded Dark Sky ($4). It’s unlike any other weather app on my iPhone. In fact, the default screen looks nothing like what I’ve come to expect from weather apps, which I really like. Hyperlocal weather forecasts This is a hyperlocal app. […]

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. When I first realized there was an app that lets you “take pictures” from videos I thought to myself, “Wow, that’s brilliant.” In […]

There’s the obvious choices like Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat and Flickr—and then there’s the ever-growing array of […]
