1. The All New DEVONthink To Go for iOS

    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 ...

    May 19, 2016 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    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 ...

    May 03, 2016 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    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 ...

  5. 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.

    April 13, 2016 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    Pretty neat stuff on Nik's Crappy Blog although probably way outside of what I'm willing to do for my macros.

  7. A Quick Tour of Keyboard Maestro Fill-In Snippets

    April 12, 2016 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    A few people have asked me about replacing TextExpander fill-in snippets using Keyboard Maestro. While I think Keyboard Maestro is pretty easy to work with, it's very different than a single purpose snippet expansion tool. Here's a quick breakdown of a macro for responding to email.

    The Omni Group just released version 2.5 of OmniFocus for the Mac and it brings back custom styling. They even provide a FAQ for creating custom styles using the OmniFocusColors app or a text editor.

    The transition from version 1 to 2 was rough for many people. The lack ...

    February 27, 2016 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    A nice little blog by a nice little guy:

    Soon, I was also adding brief summaries of my days. Then I was capturing ideas and even, perish the thought, writing about my feelings. Without noticing it, I had finally picked up journaling.

    That describes so many of my habits, including ...
