  • Task Manager – GoodTask + Reminders – I might be moving over to Omnifocus and Reminders. It is dependent on what is best for my workflow.

  • Automation App – Hazel
  • Online Backup Service – Backblaze
  • Backup Application – Carbon Copy Cloner


  • Reddit App – Apollo
  • Podcast App – Mimir – Fantastic support and the apps works really well. Mimir is now my primary podcast app!
  • Camera App – Halide
  • Scanning App – Scan Thing
  • Document Scanning App – Notes

  • Recipe Manager – Mela
  • RSS Reader – Reeder
