Tim Challies in answer to a friend of his outlines four methods to organise your prayer life and a few thoughts about why it’s important. I agree with a lot of this and already use the Prayer Mate app, I shall be looking at the way Tim has set the app up and the method both he and John Piper use to pray.
This is a really insightful look into the process behind making an iPad app from an established iPhone app. As a designer I have some knowledge of designing for different screen sizes, but the behaviour of an app is very different to the behaviour of a website, albeit with some similarities. Before I begin any future web design projects I’ll definitely be giving this piece another read or two.
The Sweet Setup has spent some time looking for the best bible app on iOS. I’ve had a hot and cold relationship with bible apps, sometimes I find time incredibly useful, other times they seem cold and disconnecting. I’m by no means an expert, but I’ve tried s number of the apps on this list and couldn’t agree more with the conclusion, in fact the two apps that I have installed on my iPhone and iPad are the top two from this article.
A glowing review which I couldn’t agree with more. Ever since I downloaded it for my iPad I’ve been using the app, now it’s on my iPhone as well everything I write for this site goes through the app. Paired with the Mac app, it’s great for writing sermons in as well.
I started using Ulysses on my iPad just before Christmas. Just after Christmas I started using it on my Mac because I liked it so much. Now I can use it on my iPhone thanks to today’s new release.
I’ve been a Day One user over the last few years, having spells of using it more than others.the release of Day One 2 brings a slew of new features and a visual overhaul, I’ve already picked up the iOS version, but I’m debating the need to pick up the Mac one.
The new Forecast mode shows you a summary of your upcoming time-based commitments at a glance in the sidebar.
I use OmniFocus everyday, in fact I’ve used it everyday for the last 2 years. It’s an excellent way of tracking all the bits you need to do, with the Forecast mode from the iPad and iPhone coming to the new Mac version I’m, rather geekily, excited!
Let’s start with OmniFocus 2! For OmniFocus 2, we’re bringing back to the Mac all of the design and innovation that went into our iPad edition of OmniFocus: dedicated Forecast and Review modes, clearer navigation, and a fresh look and feel.
Woohoo! First public debut at 6pm on 31st January 2013. I use this app everyday, can’t wait for a cleaner interface.
Great new update to one of my favourite iPad apps. I use it regularly to sketch out ideas for projects I’m working on. Looks like I may be using it more and more, might be time to invest in a stylus.
