My favourite tools, hardware and apps that I use and love.
Not an exhaustive list, just the stuff that I particularly like.
💻 Macbook Pro 13" Early 2015 – The best machine ever.
📱 iPhone 7 – Such a great device. Though I will be probably looking to upgrade this autumn.
🎧 Sony WH-1000XM3 – Terrible name, amazing headphones. The noise-cancelation is priceless in the office and cafés.
⌚️ Withings Activité – I'm digging the simplicity and the combination of a classic look and smart features.
📘 Kindle Paperwhite 3 – Perhaps my favorite device. Single-purpose, well made and I just love reading.
🖱 ConnectIT vertical mouse – Nothing fancy, but it's vertical and my wrist is happy and pain-free.
🛠 Axure RP – I swear by this one, it's the most powerful prototyping tool. Occasionally, I use Framer too – both for different purposes.
📫 Postbox - Powerful yet good looking email client. I've grown accustomed to it over several years.
📅 Fantastical – Definitely worth the money, the best calendar I found. Using it on my phone too.
✍️ Notion – For planning, writing, making notes...such a versatile tool!
✅ Todoist – Very well made to-do app, has everything I need to plan my tasks.
🧘♂️ Center – I meditate every day. After using Headspace for years, I switched to just a simple timer and this one is great.
🏋️♀️ Strong – For tracking my weigh-lifting workouts. Very flexible and usable for me.
📖 Pocket – My go-to app for saving articles to read later.
💰 Spendee – I like to see where my money goes to manage it better.
☑️ Habitify – I have been tracking my habits for several years now and this app has been my favourite for doing that .
📚 Goodreads – Perhaps the only social-network app on my phone (except for Messenger). I'm keeping track of what I read and I love to discover new books, what friends are reading etc.
🎵 Spotify – As a huge music fan, this is a must-have.
📻 Overcast – While I don't listen to podcasts too often, I love this app for being so well-crafted.
👨🍳 KitchenStories – I cook a lot at home and this is my go-to place for recipes.
🚉 CG Transit – As I use public transport a lot, this app helps me every day with looking up times and planning journeys across the city. Not the most beautiful, but very handy and usable.
