Curiosity – Find Everything, Anywhere – A Review

Curiosity is an app that aims to make finding things easier – in a world where many people use dozens of apps, it can be hard to find what you are looking for when everything is stored in a different place.

This is where Curiosity comes in – it allows you to connect apps such as Dropbox, Github, your local files, and more all in one place, allowing you to easily find documents across apps.

Strong Review – Workout Tracker

Strong has been my app of choice to track my gym sessions for a few months now. I was looking for an app that was more advanced than Apple Workouts, in order to track my progress, and aid me in hitting PRs and making progress. Strong was the app I chose – the simple UI, yet powerful analytics as well as the Watch app were exactly what I was looking for.


A Look at Evernote Tasks

Evernote, my favourite notetaking software, has recently introduced a new features – tasks. I am still looking for the perfect task manager, with my favourite, Things 3, not being available on Windows. Evernote Tasks aims to allow you to manage deadlines, important tasks and similar all in the note.

Narwhal Piston-Fill Fountain Pen Review

The Narwhal Piston-Filled Fountain Pen is a strikingly designed acrylic fountain pen, filled with a piston mechanism using bottled ink. A newcomer to the fountain pen industry, Narwhal is a fairly little known fountain pen brand.

Coming in at $50, the pen is extremely well made, with striking looks and a pleasant nib to write with.

WorkOutDoors Review

WorkOutDoors is a powerful activity tracking app for the Apple Watch. With a huge amount of customizability, vector maps, route tracking and much more, WorkOutDoors is a great choice for those who want a more powerful and flexible workout tracking app.

Following routes, creating custom views and screens for individual activities, and detailed analysis of activities is just some of what WorkOutDoors can do.

BlitzWolf BW-AS3 Review

The BW-AS3 from Blitzwolf is a high quality and high power speaker with cylindrical housing covered in fabric and a touch interface on top to control the device, weighing at around 2 kilograms. The BW-AS3 is a nice portable speaker that is great for using around the house and bringing to places where you want a loud speaker with 360 sound.

Nirvana Task Manager Review

Having used Things 3 for years, I finally decided to give another task manager a go – using my phone to manage all my tasks was getting pretty clunky, and I wanted something that I could access on my laptop and desktop too.

The most important thing for me in a task manager is the ability to not only set due dates, but to schedule those tasks. For example, I want to be able to have a task such as ‘write essay’, and have it in my today list without losing the due date. This ruled out Todoist for me – I really like the app but it does not have this essential feature.

I found Nirvana – an app fairly similar to Things, and it had everything I needed – cross platform support so I could use it on all my devices, the ability to schedule and have a due date, and sorting features. In this review, I’ll go through Nirvana’s main features, as well as things I like and dislike about the app.

Brainwavz XL Earpads Review

After 7 years of heavy usage, the earpads on my DT 770 Pros finally reached the end of their life. I really liked the sound signature they had, however they were constantly falling off and in dire need of replacement.

To replace them, I settled on the Brainwavz XL earpads – these were popular earpads that were comfortable and easy to fit. They are also made out of sheepskin, so are easy to clean.

I’ve always had an interest in aviation, and over the past few months I’ve found the time to start playing X-Plane, a flight simulator. The Colimata Concorde is an aircraft that can be purchased, and offers a simulation that lets you experience some of what Concorde would have been like to fly.

In this review, I’ll go over the externals, systems, and other features that the Colimata Concorde has.

Jailbreak Your iPhone with unc0ver

For years jailbreaking has been a tricky thing to do with iPhones – often it would run with a significant risk of bricking your device, and would require knowledge of the iOS filesystem. In general, it wasn’t something your everyday iOS user would be able to do.

However, unc0ver changes that – compatible with all devices between iOS 11.0 – 13.5, unc0ver is a fast and simple way to jailbreak your iPhone with no risk of bricking your device. In this post, I’ll go through how to use unc0ver, as well as some good tweaks that I would recommend.
