What’s New?


The entire structure of my iPhone home screens has been changed since we last talked. First off, I moved all apps to the first screen (with about 30 in folders) and a few apps that are getting tested on page 2. This new arrangement is working great for me so far. And yes, this arrangement is inspired by CGP Grey’s setup he showed off on Cortex’s first episode.

Flipboard has replaced Alien Blue as my general entertainment app. I. just done with Reddit. There seems like there’s some new drama happening there every week these days, and I had just started to have a more negative experience everytime I visited the site. I cut it loose for some curated topics on Flipboard, and I’m much happier.

Pushpin has replaced Pocket as my read later service.

Squarespace is back in my life, and their Blog and Metrics apps have gained home screen status.

Slack is my new love. We use it at my new job, and it’s really an amazing way to communicate with your co-workers.

Pocket Casts has replaced Overcast. I change this back and forth every few months, so nothing to see here…

Template here.

Big change for the Apple Watch this month, as I’ve switched to the data-rich Modular face.
