Digital Journaling with Day One

I’m a big fan of journaling and have previously used my bullet journal to journal in. I think journaling is good for your mental health and helps you start or end your day with a clear head. In fact it’s even nice sometimes to just journal off the cuff and I love that I can use my phone as well as my iPad to do that, now that I’ve switched to digital journaling. I switched to Day One around a month ago and whilst I was apprehensive at first, I’m a huge fan of digital journaling now. I...

iA Writer vs Ulysses | Which Do I Prefer?

Writing in Markdown is something that is very popular for writers. It’s distraction-free writing at it’s best and that is something that appeals to a lot of people. There are a fair few markdown text editors out there, two of the most popular being Ulysses and iA Writer and having now tried both I wanted to share my thoughts. iA Writer has been my text editor of choice for good while now. I love how I can just open up the app on my iPad or Mac and get into writing a blog post straight...

My Working From Home Setup

If you follow me on Twitter/Instagram then you’ll know that I recently upgraded my working from home setup. Mostly due to the current worldwide situation, I’m working from home full time now, but also because I do regularly work from home anyway and it’s something I’ve felt would be beneficial for a while now. Working from a small 13-inch laptop screen is fine for occasional use but for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, bigger is better. For this reason I opted for a 27 inch HD monitor and...

3 Apps I Use Everyday

There are some apps that you use everyday without fail. Whether it’s the standard set of apps that came with your phone or a bunch of apps you downloaded that you rely on each day, we’re all on our phones a lot and we’re not just starting at our home screens. At least not all of the time. These are the five apps I use everyday (or thereabouts, I’m only human after all). Things 3 Things 3 is my task manager of choice and I check it every single morning and it’s usually the first thing...

iPad Pro 2020 | I Got an Upgrade! | iPad Pro 10.5 to iPad Pro 2020 12.9

I’m typing this post out on the new Smart Keyboard Folio which is attached to my brand new 12.9 inch 2020 iPad Pro! I absolutely loved my 10.5 iPad Pro but it was the 2017 model and when the new iPads came out the other week I knew it wouldn’t be long before I caved and got one. I love having the bigger size iPad, it’s still super portable but you have so much more screen real estate. Not to mention extra space for apps in your dock, something I’m a big fan of. Although I still don’t...

3 iPad Pro Accessories You NEED to Consider

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of the iPad Pro. I’ve written about it enough and I use it all the time especially for writing my blog posts. There are some accessories that absolutely make my iPad better and this post is going to cover them. 1) The Apple Smart Keyboard Probably a no brainer and something that features on almost all blog posts of this nature but for good reason. I love this keyboard, I love the feel of typing on it and honestly, I really do not think another keyboard...

Apple Arcade Games I’m Playing | March

I mentioned in my post earlier this week that I finally succumbed to Apple Arcade and became a subscriber and I’m super happy with my decision. I’ve already in the few days that I’ve been subscribed found three games that I absolutely love (along with a bunch more that I’ve downloaded but not played yet) and I know I’m only going to find more. It seemed only right to create a new series on the blog dedicated to the Apple Arcade games I’m playing, seeing as I already have one about...

So I Got Apple Arcade…

I finally caved after many months of pondering over whether it was worth it and I subscribed to Apple Arcade. I’m currently still in the one month free trial period, which I think is very generous but I already know I’m going to be staying put. There are so many amazing games available and it’s only going to get bigger and better, so for someone who loves gaming of all kinds, it’s a no brainer. I love how there are so many games with controller support on Apple Arcade, something I’ve...

New Apps to Me | March

I’m back with another post that kicks off a new monthly series (on months where I discover new apps at least!). If you missed my iPad & iPhone Games post last week then you can check it out here. That post was the first in a monthly series I’m planning on doing covering the different games I’m playing month on month. I really like posts like this because not only do they give me a chance to share what I’m currently using but they’re also a way to document when I started using a...

iPad & iPhone Games I’m Playing | March

I’ve recently gotten into Little Alchemy 2 and I’m thoroughly enjoying it. I didn’t play the first one although I remember reading about it, not sure why I didn’t download it at the time as it’s right up my street. I like that you can dip in and out of it whenever you have a free moment or if you have plenty of time you can sit for hours trying different combinations. If you haven’t heard of Little Alchemy before, it’s as the name suggests an alchemy game where you start...
