Fetching.io - Records and offers full text search of my browsing history. And also saves webpages I visit.
Yoink - A nifty app that helps better drag and drop.
gfxCardstatus - My mac has a faulty NVDIA Geforce card. It crashes my mac after certain time. The only solution is to use intel card. This app makes my mac force use the functioning intel graphics card.
Popclip - Select text and this app pops up. Then do stuff with that text.
Grammarly - Helps catch those silly mistakes while typing fast, and also those "oh I didn't realise that was a relative clause" type of mistakes.
iPad Pro 9.7 Apps
Goodnotes - My preferred note-taking app. I have tried notability, and a few others but I find this one to my liking. The features that made it stick were - handwriting recognition(you can search your handwritten notes, technology!), a page can be changed in a notebook, and lots of tiny ones here and there.
PDF Expert - For reading pdfs and annotating them(multiple pens). It also has a great feature where you can add pages in between for notes.
- Liquid Notes - For those times when I need to refer to multiple parts of the same PDF at the same time.
Airmail - Probably the most researched field of apps - mail. This is the most pro featured app I found that has such a beautiful interace and smooth user experience.
Day one - I have been a day one user since years. I hesitated when they made me switch to their proprietary sync service but, meh, I don’t input that sensitive text and photos in there anyway. Also, they just promised an end to end encrypted sync on their blog.
Fiery Feeds - RSS is still the main way I consume blogs. And fiery feeds is the best. The amount of appearance customisation is too good. And horizontal scroll is icing on the cake.
Hyphen - All the epubs go in here. The main criteria for all my reading apps is the amount of customisation it offers. Hyphen is the king of all. It even has CSS options if you are not happy with the sliders and you want the full monty.
Spotify - Ideal for checking out new artists and albums.
Pocket - I have tried instapaper and readability on and off but always come back to pocket.
Pinboard - It works as a reservoir as well as a stream of links for me. Almost everything with a URL that interests me goes here. It is a paid service. Currently the subscription model has been changed to a per year basis but I purchased an account before the switch.
Dropbox - I use it exclusively to backup only my text documents.
icloud - I use it to sync my calendar, contacts, keyboard shortcuts, and tabs between iphone and mac.
Inoreader - A great freemium RSS sync service. I used to use Feedly but this is much better.
Wire - For text messaging. The only end to end encrypted messaging service that has a good design and supports multiple devices across multiple platforms.
Youtube - Surpringly high amount of usage - tutorials, entertainment, songs, etcetra.
