First Impressions of the Nextbit Robin

https://youtu.be/Ll8IQejJtRo

The Nextbit Robin is a downright coolest looking phone I have ever seen since the iPhone 4. While the rest of the industry is focused on metal and glass and trying to remove everything that's not a screen, the Robin in soft plastic and demands to be noticed.

I've spent a couple days with the phone and wanted to share my first impressions. Overall, it's a delightful, if flawed phone.

Login Magic with 1Password for iOS

iOS allows password managers like 1Password and LastPass to easily log you into certain apps and websites. This works in all websites, and quite a few apps (although app developers need to build in support for these apps). Instapaper has a nice implementation of this, and I wanted to show off how quick and easy logging in with 1Password can be.

Meanwhile, Spotlight search for passwords is not something I use every day, but is very helpful in those cases where I really need it.
