1. Mac Power Users 358 [Link]

    January 03, 2017 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    Katie and David were kind enough to invite me on the Mac Power Users podcast. We only talked briefly about DEVONthink. It's always so much fun talking to the hosts of a show I listen to every week.

  2. Annotable for iOS

    January 01, 2017 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    With the huge variety of image editors available for iOS, I find myself using Annotable more with every new update. Pixelmator and OmniGraffle are amazing pieces of software on iOS but for simple edits they are just too much work. With all of the tools unlocked (a $10 IAP) Annotable ...

  3. DEVONthink Formatted Notes

    December 19, 2016 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    Most of my information is captured as plain text. I love text files. But, sometimes an image or a bit of formatting actually does help document things more precisely. Writing notes in Markdown with image links is possible but it’s not enjoyable. This is especially true when working on ...

  4. Direct Links to DEVONthink Groups and Tags

    December 19, 2016 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    I’m a huge fan of DEVONthink for iOS . It’s one of my favorite apps released in 2016. But there are still some frustrating gaps and non-obvious features. Accessing favorite tags and groups takes far too much exploring and is not supported by the standard URL scheme. But, it ...

  5. 3D Touch Your Phone

    This is not new but I forget about the feature every week. 3D Touch the phone app on iOS to access favorites and other quick access features.

    I’m not sure of the right way for Apple to educate users about all of these iOS features but I doubt most ...

  6. The Evolution of OmniFocus

    December 10, 2016 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    My history with OmniFocus goes back to OmniOutliner on the Mac and the miraculous Kinkless GTD (thanks Ethan!). Those early days with Kinkless and GTD felt a bit revolutionary. Then The Omni Group released OmniFocus and set a the gold standard in task management for both Mac and iOS. The ...

  8. iCloud Calendar Spam

    November 25, 2016 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    I recently enjoyed a new form of spam: iCloud calendar spam. No, it wasn’t a calendar invitation attached to an email. It appears to be from a source other than email.

    Here’s the fact pattern:

    A new event alarm was created in my primary iCloud calendar without my ...

  9. Timeline and Hardbound for Anti-News

    November 23, 2016 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    I’ve been enjoying my free time quite a bit while I workout a new framework for understanding other humans. I’ve made specific efforts to avoid “news” in all of its grotesque forms. It’s a challenge partially alleviated by finding other mental outlets.

    Two outlets I’ve enjoyed ...

  10. FTP Upload with Workflow and Transmit on iOS

    November 21, 2016 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    I’m moving some of my Mac scripting solutions to iOS. One of my favorite Hazel setups on my Mac is for uploading files to an SFTP server and returning a URL for the file. I use this for almost every blog post the has an image. I select the ...
