- My favorite app of all time. I feel like I might go a bit stir crazy without music. Also, it'd make whatever time I had to spend on the island much more enjoyable, not to mention all the dance parties I could have. I imagine myself like a Disney princess in a montage, making my way in my own isolated world, jamming TF out as I create shelter and daydream 💃
I'm a part of a ton of Slack communities but I'm active in only a handful.
Slack works to its fullest only when it is implemented in a team and everyone's supposed to use it for communication. Slack could/should improve on making the communities on it better by adding relevant features.
As a remote designer, this is a must have. I'm always contactable and available. Super easy way to also have quick calls and communicate with other team members on different teams.
- We're getting busier and busier, and the way consume news is changing. What I love about Quartz is that it gives me a nice overview of what's happening in the world in an easy and digestible way from where I can then delve further. Essential for keeping up to date with what's happening in the world.
- What is Twitter? Nobody really knows, but I know I use it all day long. I've made interesting relationships I otherwise wouldn't have, is one of my primary news sources (nuzzel) and am constantly learning from my network. If Twitter didn't exist and I had to use Facebook as a replacement I'd probably consider getting an old Nokia 3310. Saw one fall from *9 stories* and it survived!
- I've been using this RSS reader consistently for the past 5 years or so. As Twitter becomes filled with trolls, ads and too much emphasis on political chatter, this app is a reliable and easy way to consume your favorite information sources. It's super fast, has a clean design and integrates with many 3rd party tools like pocket, instapaper, etc.
I've loved Medium for a long time - in fact I still hear from people (other authors wanting to link/interview me, prospective clients, etc.) every singe month directly from my very first Medium post.
Medium on mobile is...so-so. Much better than the original app, but the nature of a content network means there's a ton to fit on a small screen's UX.
My only real issue with the app is the writing interface (which should be Medium's strongest point if the website is any indication). It's reminiscent of the beloved Medium writing interface, but some of the features
I've used many blog editors out there, and none has proven to be as easy and user friendly as Medium.
