    A beautiful, flexible writing app for notes and prose

    I've tried a lot of notes apps for Mac OS and iOS, but none really delight me the way that Bear does with it's intuitiveness and simplicity. It doesn't do too much, it just does enough.

    The new design is excellent - love being able to do multiple packs at the same time. Well worth it's annual subscription price.

    Not just beautiful, but super functional. To do lists are a crowded market, but I feel Todoist stands out because of it's cross platform design.
    Totally agree. Great design across all devices. No clutter, just everything you need.

    Fantastical 2 for Mac

    The calendar app you won't be able to live without

    Beautiful interface – admittedly it's missing some things (I still generally go to calendar.google.com for creating complicated invites), but I believe most of those issues are because of things that Google has chosen not to open up – like the concept of Rooms, etc.
    George Gonzalez-RivasA man like any other. Only more so. · Written
    I think Fantastical is very nice... EXCEPT for the required 2 Factor Notification which keeps playing hell with my Apple TV and iTunes access. This flaw now makes it my most hated app. Ever. There you are; forewarned.

    It really works for me!
    This is hands down the best podcasting app. Love its simplicity and advanced settings as well. It's a wonderfully minimal interface and offers an intuitive UX. Frequent updates, great transparency for new releases, changes around features, etc.

    Atlas Recall

    A searchable photographic memory for your digital life

    Paul Williamscreative problem solver · Edited
    Recall runs in the background of my Mac and serves as my digital memory bank… It lets me interact with my digital history. It is an app which - because of how helpful it is - I would expect to pay for, but it is free (for now anyway!) I use it 5 to 10x a day to help me recall a doc I was working on, or pull up a web page I was browsing. The interface of the app is clean and slick... and the browser integration with Chrome and Safari (I use Chrome) is nice as well. There when you need it - out of mind, until you do!

    Sort of a paradox for a last-minute hotel deals app, I feel I'm getting a premium experience every time I book a hotel through HotelTonight, compared to other OTAs which are not necessarily cheaper.
