The Toolset: March 2015 Edition

I love apps. If I could afford it, I would have an Android and iOS device and just swap sim cards once a week. I will always try new stuff and see if there is something new that I could factor into my process. Even though I really like my workflow. Here is what I have been working with the last few months. Productivity

Evernote – Everything lives here, if I want to reference anything. I make sure Evernote has a copy Todoist – I can install it on all my devices. It is the one todo app that I seem to auctually listen to. Trello – Still don’t know how I can work this into the flow. I just really like i Sunrise

Reading

Instapaper – The premimum highlights feature combined with IFTT syncing them to Evernote is just perfect Feedly Scribd – Just started a free trial to see if this can replace Audible. Selection is improving but their Android app has been a little buggy. Blinkist – The cliff notes for non-fiction. I almost feel like I am cheating but it does help to cut the crap out of your reading list.

Writing

iA Writer – Recently released Android app is one of the best Markdown editors for the OS. Draftin

Development

Hostgator – Have had zero problems with them. Plus, they are dirt cheap and handles my few static and wordpress sites dploy.io – Just started using this and is a game changer. If you are still stuck using shared hosting. You might want to start factor this deployment system in. **Drophost – Wordpress sites that sync with your dropbox. I started using this to make a Wordpress theme. A service to keep an eye on. Github – We all use this now.
