In my [previous post on using Day One as an Evernote Food replacement](http://www.danielh.photo/blog/2015/10/day-one-as-an-evernote-food-replacement), I mentioned that they were working on letting us add more than one photo to an entry. Day One 2 is the solution, and it’s available now.
I know people tend to get bent out of shape when forced to pay for an upgrade, myself included. But this one is worth it.
Let's start this post with a moment of silence to honor the recently deceased Evernote Food app... I mean, I get it. Evernote has been making some major changes internally in order to become more profitable. It was inevitable. Nobody is in business to be warm and fuzzy. They're in it to make money. Period. … Continue reading Day One as an Evernote Food Replacement
For quite awhile now, I've been using a hacked-together method of marrying Evernote with the Apple Reminders App. It required some Applescript, and it definitely wasn't perfect (didn't work on iOS, for example,) but it did the trick for awhile. Ever since Evernote acquired EgretList, I've been waiting for them to come out with an … Continue reading Evernote Reminders
I've been using iA Writer on my iPad for awhile now, and just realized I could get it on my Mac. Apparently, it's half price right now, so it was totally worth the $4.99 price tag. I'd have paid full-price for this app. On the iPad, it's a distraction-free, full-screen writing app with minimal bells … Continue reading iA Writer for Mac and iOS

New lens … Continue reading Lightroom 4.1 now available
Final Cut Pro X dropped today with a friendly $299 price tag. It's not the full suite that we're used to purchasing, but I actually like the ala-carte method better. Motion 5 and Compressor 4 are also available via the Mac App Store for $49 each. So for $400 you could be on your way … Continue reading Final Cut Pro X now available in the Mac App Store
via lifehacker.com Spotlight is your Mac's built-in search tool. It's great for finding documents, email, etc. But it's also perfect for opening applications. This Lifehacker article goes into a bit more detail, but essentially you just hit Command+Space and start typing the name of the app you want to open.
via lifehacker.com I've been using encrypted disk images for awhile now. They're great for journals, financial information, etc.
It's here, and it scares me. I think about all the money I've spent on the App Store for the iOS devices I've used, and having the same thing for my Mac elicits visions of my bank account shrinking. That said, this is friggin' awesome. Purchasing is easy (too easy,) but the update feature is … Continue reading Mac App Store is open for business!
