  • Hello Todoist. Goodbye Wunderlist!

    I have been looking for Wunderlist replacement since last year. I can feel Wunderlist is staling. Wunderlist’s new incarnation, Microsoft To-Do, isn’t making good progress. It lacks basic features like sub-projects et al. Given how long it’s been since Microsoft’s acquisition of Wunderlist was announced and the development progress of the To-Do app, I have […]


  • Don’t fall for marketing emails

    Earlier this month I signed up for Grammarly to improve my writing. I used it for a few weeks, and it seemed like a useful app to help me write better. So I thought of upgrading to Pro but haven’t opened my wallet. Then an email appeared on 10 Nov suggesting me to upgrade for […]


  • Itsycal

    I found this list of 25 free macOS apps every Mac user should have, which I found on my twitter feed, interesting. I already use some apps like Wunderlist, Slack and VLC mentioned in that list. But one app that I felt I could use is Itsycal. It shows the calendar from the menu bar; […]


  • 1000 days of Elevate

    Today is my 1000 th day playing Elevate.            I broke the streak once in June 2016, not because I slacked but because I was stuck on the dated iPhone 4 running on dated iOS 7 on which the Elevate app was slow and crashed repeatedly. I was also traveling and didn’t have reliable internet. […]


  • 800 days of Elevate

    Hit the 800 day streak on Elevate today. Between moving the phones and traveling, I lost the streak in June.  So I used the cheat to restore the streak and never missed a day ever since. Here’s to 1000 days.


  • 600 days of Elevate

    Today I played Elevate for 600th day in a row. This is the only live and longest streak I currently have.


  • Elevate milestone

    I reached 401 day long streak on Elevate today. I was at 101 last time when I wrote about  this cool educational app. Elevate combines two of my passions: deliberate practice and building tiny habits. This is what makes me reach out to Elevate as soon as I wake up every morning. It hurts to […]


  • Google Photos

    I wished only three things in a photos app: Auto upload camera roll including videos Unlimited storage Free Today this wish became true. Google released Photos app that ticks all three boxes. Like everyone’s, my camera roll has precious memories on it which I keep pushing to cloud regularly. But I only have a limited […]


  • Facebook iPhone app user experience sucks

    Dear Facebook, I installed your app after many months so I can easily set one of the photos in my camera roll as a cover photo. This time I hoped to keep you on my iPhone. However I am disappointed that you haven’t stopped infesting my feed with “People You May Know” list. I understand […]
