The Sources and Methods Podcast [Link]

December 26, 2016 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

The Sources and Methods podcast is a good interview show with a wide variety of guests. I was lucky enough to be invited on this week’s episode. Alex and I talked about using DEVONthink, social media, and the value proposition for privacy. I think it was a fun conversation and I stand behind my recommendations at the end. Miyazaki is just the best. Check out the copious show notes too.

    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 ...

  2. The Evolution of OmniFocus

    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 ...

    These tutorials by Jesse are a great introduction to TaskPaper. If you haven’t used TaskPaper in a long while, it’s worth another look. The application was completely redesigned and has several cool new features. Even the TaskPaper date picker is one of the most functional I’ve seen ...

    September 09, 2016 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    Every year there's one or two iOS apps that really elevate the platform to a new level for me. In the early days it was Tweetbot and iThoughts. Then it was Evernote and Editorial, and Workflow. More recently, scanning applications like Scanner Pro or Scanbot have been tremendous new ...

    Hazel is one of my top 5 Mac apps. It's taken me years to build up the scripts that Hazel runs on my machine, partly because there's a steep learning curve and quite a bit of danger. But now, David Sparks has a video field guide to teach ...

    I love concept maps. I love notes. So, of course I'd love the idea behind Octopus Note. It's a mapping app that also links to detailed notes. It's in beta now.

    Brought to me by my bearded friend who really gets me.

    Episode 65 of Nerds on Draft is freshly canned and includes one of the best IPAs I've ever had and a bunch of discuss about task managers (again). Jeff and I check in on how it's going with 2Do for iOS and Mac and talk about rough edges ...

  8. More on the OmniFocus URL Scheme [Link]

    April 21, 2016 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    The new OmniFocus URL scheme looks to be a major improvement. It's still in development but it's starting to sound like OmniFocus is going to catch up to other apps in some significant ways.

    This means, for example, that you can now create a text file outlining an ...
