Good shout, looking forward to new apps to try (mine are the standard, such as Monzo, outlook etc)
(Do you think I have time to argue with someone on here)
I’ve been loving Slowly. Started using it just at the beginning of the great plague to try and connect with people across the globe and learn about their experiences. It’s been a great tool, and I’d like to think I built some good connections.
The app takes a different approach to online communication, each letter takes some time to deliver based on real-world distance. This forces people to think more about what they say and usually leads to lot more in-depth conversations
My most used apps are probably for podcasts, audiobooks, books or social media. Sooo I’ve deliberately avoided the biggies and offered a more practical one.
I use “Shop” from Shopify to track all my online ordering in one place. Some websites already use the API and orders appear automatically, but some need to be added manually. This is really easy to do.
I spent lockdown cataloguing (whilst listening to) my entire physical music collection on Discogs. 2,500 CDs and about 100 LPs. Sold a couple of things for a few hundred pounds when I realised the value of some of it, too!
One of my favorite apps is Evernote, which I use as a note-taking app. I also use it to store links to articles that I find while reading or researching and want to come back to later. I also use it to store research notes, links to blog posts, and other things that might be useful in the future.
Another app that I’ve been using more recently is Google Keep, which allows me to create checklists and reminders for myself. It’s pretty great for keeping track of things that need to get done each day or week, but don’t necessarily fit into one of your larger categories (like “work,” “home” or “blogging”). If you’re someone who likes having a paper notebook handy when making lists, this is a great digital alternative!
For anyone who has a Microsoft subscription, I would recommend using OneNote - it offers similar functionality to Evernote and will be synced to your Microsoft account. With a bit of tweaking you can change the interface layout to one that suits you. I also download the 2016 version of the program for my PC directly from onenote.com as I’m not too keen on the ‘touchscreen-friendly’ layout of the new version.
