10 of the Best iOS and Mac Apps of 2018

This year, we took a look at 5 macOS and iOS apps each month and in this video, we’re doing a retrospective that highlights some of the best Mac and iOS apps …


  1. My best iOS applications (for iPad Pro, iphone and Watch):
    – Fantastical
    – Drafts 5 as a note taking and as a tray and send my notes to any of the apps I use everyday (Fantastical, Things, Email, Notes…)
    – Things 3
    – Yoink as a collector of good stuff while searching the net for later use, synchronised on iDevices
    – Flipboard as a RSS feed like
    And then some games:
    – Grid Autosport
    – BubbleXplode
    – Tropico

  2. My two cents:
    – Agenda (Mac/iOS)
    – Things (Mac/iOS)
    – Affinity Photo (Mac/iOS)
    – BetterTouchTool (Mac)
    – Fantastical (Mac/iOS)
    – Little Snitch (Mac)
    – Alfred (Mac)

  3. If I need to del all app – I will stay use only 3 – Things 3 – best in world todo. YouTube and Worlflowy – best notes app ever in my life. Cheirman of NY Times use WorkFlowy too)
    But the best of the best is Things 3.

  4. I really appreciate your content. I hope you don't mind my offering some feedback on your presentation style. Often when presenting a list of items where each item is more than just a single word, you'll revert to this kind of, for lack a better linguistic description, rising intonation and carried syllable just prior to the end of every sentence. This isn't atypical. What you often hear is most folks rising at the end of each item, and falling at the last as a kind of period. But in your case, it's very heavily pronounced to the point where it comes across as aloofness. Sometimes you do it even when it's not a list of items. It can be difficult to listen to from the audience perspective. I don't mean any offense, it's just something worth looking into to take your work to the next level, like how I can tell you and/or your team is very particular about the lighting in your videos (to great effect). Easier said than done, of course.
