Goodies: September 15

Well, it appears we all survived the onslaught of Apple news last week and have stumbled into that awkward in-between time in the Apple press where we know what Apple is releasing, but we can’t get our hands on any of it yet. I for one am over the moon for 3D Touch and am a little let down by the iPad Pro.

But enough about Apple, let’s get to what we all came here for today: goodies! First up is an incredibly moving interview between Stephen Colbert and Vice Predident Joe Biden. It’s not your normal late night interview by any means, and I hope you take the time to watch.

Swag of the Week

iA Writer is a delightful writing app for the Mac, iOS, and Android. It’s a little more minimal than my typical writing app, Byword, but iA Writer sets itself apart with beautiful typography and cool navigational gestures. I still love Byword, but I find myself constantly falling back in love with Writer.

iA Writer is $9.99 for iOS and $19.99 for the Mac.
