editor's message

When sitting down to write this editor’s message, I got to wondering: What have I learned about productivity that I didn’t know last year? Naturally, our team at iPhone Life has tested out and reviewed new apps (pg. 34) and gear (pg. 36) that are powerful tools for any professional endeavor. And we’ve also talked to professionals across a variety of fields to discover the strategies that are making them more productive than ever (pg. 30) and that you can easily incorporate into your own routine.

Name: Donna Cleveland Title: Editor in Chief Years at iPhone Life: 5 Apple Products Owned: iPhone X, Apple Watch, AirPods, and MacBook Pro. Office Quirk: What can I say, I have a thing for arrows. Whether I’m working on an article or a video project, it doesn’t matter—I add arrows.

Donna Cleveland, Editor in Chief During a recent extended stay in Southern California, I used Bumble’s BFF feature (free) to meet likeminded ladies in the area. I now have a new friend who I like so much that I plan on keeping in touch with her even though I’m back in Iowa now. Leanne Hayes, Feature Web Writer My daughters love books, and A Mighty Girl’s website helps me find new titles with reading lists broken down by age and interest. All the books have girls and women as the main characters. All in all, this is one of my favorite summer resources to keep my girls occupied in a positive, healthy, educational way.
