Most of us at least remember to put our watches on, though, and productivity app Todoist now supports Android Wear with location-aware notifications. If you have to "pick...

Store It, free in the App Store, has the potential to be more powerful than other wishlist and gift apps on the market. It has a great concept, but isn't so great in execution. You add items to your list by searching websites with the in-app browser, scanning a barcode or uploading a photo. This...

Not too long ago, I reviewed Checkmark 2 from Snowman, the to-do and reminder app for iPhone that's got a few nice tricks up its sleeve. Do apps have sleeves? In any case, version 2.5 came out this morning (US$9.99, on sale today only for $2.99) and it adds a few more goodies to that tricky repert...

Over the years we've watched in awe as they've cranked out some amazing apps like PDF Expert, Scanner Pro, Documents, and Calendars. While many of their apps have provided the ability...

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 gre...

Spreadsheets are invaluable tools for sharing, explaining, and quantifying information, but they're a pain to present to other people. If you want to share data from an Excel document during a presentation, you usually have to cut and paste charts from Excel into Powerpoint, which limits exactly w...
