Let’s face it, the default notes app that comes with iOS is a little, shall we say, lacking. If you’re tired of its short comings then you should give this simple yet powerful app a go. It was designed with simplicity in mind, so using it just feels natural. It is also quite capable, with cloud syncing options available for both iCloud and Dropbox. Over the past couple of years I’ve tried about a dozen or so note apps on the iPhone that include Dropbox sync capability (so that I can access my notes on my Mac and iPad seamlessly), the vast majority of them simply don’t work, but iA Writer works every time. I have yet to have a data loss, which is vital when you’re jotting down things you need to remember. The iOS version is both an iPhone and iPad app, so that’s swell. The Mac, Windows, iphone, iphad, and Android versions available here.

This is the only text app I would recommend to replace Notes on your iPhone. Don’t sell yourself short with cheap and ugly alternatives.

The Sound1 Speaker pairs with Bluetooth enabled portable devices to provide beautifully clear and crisp stereo sound. Embedded magnets allow the speakers to be conjoined into a single piece, allowing them to be conveniently relocated, or stored neatly in the included pouch. When not in use, the cables are stored inconspicuously within the empty space at the bottom of the speakers.

Made in the legendary steel town of Sheffield England by 11th generation scissor makers, originally designed for industrial use — specifically to cut through Kevlar — these shears are awe inspiring. No matter the material you cut, be it packing tape, fabric, cardboard, or a bolt of ballistic nylon, you’ll feel an uncanny sense of ease, and left to wonder how you managed life without them. These shears are the perfect household and workshop tool: heavy, indestructible, extremely sharp, and non-stick (tapes and adhesives won’t gum them up).
