Sunrise calendar has always been a 3rd choice for me, behind Apple's and Readdle's excellent Calendars 5 (I use Fantastical + BusyCal on my Mac). But after hearing a lot of smart people rave about Sunrise, I've decided to give it a try. Lucky for me, a new update adds some great features and a gr...

When I was younger, I carried around a paper planner, but now I have an iPhone and an iPad in addition to my desktop Mac. The iPad on its own makes an awesome replacement...

I recently bought a new Mac, and I decided not to migrate years of cruft over to a pristine Snow Leopard install. I also decided to shed years of stale workflow and adopt a new way of doing things. Enter the power tools: software that augments the power and performance of OS X to do things faster a...
