  • Scrivener Tutorial – How I Write

    | Technology | 37 comments

    I love Scrivener. If any of you have read my little comparison review of Scrivener, Storyist and Storymill, you already know this. I adore this little piece of software. Sometimes I spend time browsin’ the web, looking for other people who love Scrivener. This is sad. However, it’s allowed me to come to one shocking… read more »

  • Writing Showdown: Storyist VS Storymill VS Scrivener

    | Technology | 18 comments

    With the rising popularity of the Mac OS platform, a number of small developers and software companies have found niche markets for themselves; the Getting Things Done crowd, the Tweaking freaks, the App Launchers; all have their own list of best-of software titles and nifty little apps. There are so many choices now to replace… read more »

  • Changes for Mac and Scribbler for iPhone

    | Technology | no comments

    Found this neat little app called Changes that allows you to compare, side-by-side and with color overlays, the differences between text documents. This seems pretty boring and useless until you realize how many damn lines are in a fanfiction or novel and how long and tedious it quickly becomes to re-read your own and proofreader’s… read more »

  • SugarSync VS DropBox

    | Technology | 15 comments

    Well. I’m back to the battle of Cloud Syncs. I’d been using DropBox for a good long while to sync my writing across several computers and to access my files on the go. As it happened, the lack of options and sharing support on DropBox eventually made me abandon the application completely. If you want… read more »

  • Macpaw’s CleanMyMac is a life (and space!) saver…

    | Random | no comments

    You know that new computer feel? That speed and snazzyness you only get right out of the box? Well, you can have that feeling back. Macpaw’s CleanMyMac removes logs, cache files, useless language files (yay!) and, listen to this, unnecessary universal binaries. I think I died and woke up in heaven. Mail, Safari and iLife… read more »

  • iPhone OS 3.0 update

    | Technology | no comments

    Well, it’s finally here and I’m happy to report that I for one am enjoying the changes so far. I don’t know how useful some of those features will be for me, but still, it’s a nice update. Copy and paste is a welcome, if late, addition, and I’m already using it a bit. Still… read more »

  • Things 1.3.6 up in the App Store

    | Technology | no comments

    The new version is working well for me, and syncs flawlessly with the desktop version of Things 1.1.2 The new version of Things iPhone now allows you to choose what to display on the icon badge. It does not, as far as I can tell, alow you to edit Project due dates directly; this still… read more »

  • Arh, GTD is kicking my ass!

    | Technology | 2 comments

    So I’m back to Things and Things for iPhone. Go figure. OmniFocus works great, but it’s a bit of an overkill for me; I don’t have to juggle with that many projects, and keeping the database up-to-date was eating up way too much of my time to be called productive. The Things interface, which was… read more »
