If you would have asked me about Twitter apps back in 2010-2012, I would have droned on for 13 hours naming off any and every decent (or better) Twitter app for a number of platforms. I would have told you intimate details about every pro, every con, and every thing else in between. But Twitter turned into a giant cesspool, controlled by a three-headed dragon, of which, none of the heads could make good decisions. So here we are in 2016. What does an obsessive person such as myself have to turn to now for a fix? Email apps. But…

We’ve been pretty fascinated with Material Design as of late and eagerly searching through numerous articles, subreddits, G+ communities and more for new and interesting apps. Today’s treasure: Weatherlove & widgets. Truth be told, WL&W has been around awhile but only more recently got some Material Design love. That said, once you fire up the app itself you’ll quickly forget about the name. If what you’re after in a weather app are simplicity and Material Design, Weatherlove & widgets will definitely be to your liking. The top most view shows current weather conditions as well as 500px sourced images for…

I’ve gone through a slew of weather apps on multiple platforms over the years. I’m kind of a weather junkie, and an impossible one to please at that. Every few weeks I’m using a different weather because…. I can. Needless to say, though, I’m always looking for the next latest and greatest. Unfortunately, finding a weather app that is 1) feature filled, 2) designed well and 3) unique is hard to find these days. But I just broke a dry spell by stumbling onto Weather Timeline by designer and developer Sam Ruston. Design Materal Material Material (design)! It’s easy to…

Custom keyboards have been one of those highly lauded bullet points on Android users’ checklist vs. their iOS friends for years. But with iOS 8, Apple finally listened to customers and made available the ability to install and use custom, 3rd party keyboards. Thus far, though, while we’ve seen some big names from Android (like Flesky and Swiftkey) make the jump, it hasn’t been perfect. That’s more of an issue that Apple needs to address. How Apple has implemented keyboards is great from a security perspective. However, being new and all, bugs are still present. Present day and after a…

In the age of instant information, smartphones, tablets and other connected devices, the act of having to physically seek out a physical newspaper or magazine is quickly waning. For better or worse, we are becoming more and more an instant gratification society. While some will inherently see this as the downfall of man, there are ways to make the “death” of traditional print media eek out a few more years of relevance. News apps are the new age paper. While a physical edition is still perfectly accessible in most cases, news companies are coming around to building apps, or at…

For almost 2 years, I refused to buy a new laptop. I swore that my iPad could do everything I needed, and then some. For the most part, I was successful in “proving” my point. It wasn’t until I started to pick up a little more web clients, that I realized there was one thing that was missing. I’ve tested just about all of the main web editors available on the AppStore; CodoSaurus, Gusto – Code Editor and FTP Client, and FTP on the Go. While some had incredible interfaces — Gusto may have been one of the best UIs…
