There is one area where I’ve recently made some serious changes. I’ve boiled my Contexts down to two: work and home.
Now this idea really gets me thinking. I’ve struggled to find suitable contexts and always feel like the ones I use don’t suit me. Perhaps I’ll give this simple approach a go.
Screenshot Journal is a tool for UI designers, artists, and other pixel addicts who care a bit more about their iPhone (or iPad) screenshots than the integrated Camera Roll archive does. The app archives all your screenshots and organizes them chronologically or by marking favorites.
No brainer for me. As a user experience researcher, I’m always grabbing screenshots for my personal reference library. Finally, this app will allow me to easily corral all my screenshots in one place.
Hidden is a small application which sits idle on your computer until you need it. When your computer gets stolen simply login to your online Tracking Control Panel and mark your computer as stolen. Hidden will kick into action and locate your stolen computer anywhere on the planet, collect photos of the thief and screen shots of the computer in use.
Ever since my laptop was stolen years ago, I’ve had Hidden installed on my new laptop. Pretty horrible feeling when someone breaks in and steals your stuff. If you have a laptop, there is no excuse for not installing a tracker.
On his site, MacStories, Federico Viticci explains his Dropbox writing workflow:
Dropbox makes it extremely easy to have a reliable environment of connected apps and services that access the same files and even keep multiple versions of them if anything goes wrong.
Federico goes into extreme detail on his writing workflow in this article. Dropbox is my goto environment for shared data as well. I’ve been experimenting with iCloud as an alternative for specific apps such as Byword and Day One but still, Dropbox rules my world.
I learn about so many cool apps and interesting tips whenever @vittici writes an article like this.
This video series, You Suck at Photoshop, is back after a long break. Really funny stuff.
