Price: Free (in-app purchases) from fave.co/32iSF5V Although I love Fantastical, there are tasks on my to-do lists that would be better served by a different kind of app. Reminders for recurring DIY and car maintenance chores such as cleaning the car, mowing the lawn, or scheduling annual eye tests and dental cleanings are just a few of the important services that are easy to be overlooked when intermixed with unrelated one-time tasks. These are exactly the type of reminders Directive was created for. Free to download and use for up to ten maintenance tasks on Mac, iPhone, and iPad, the app comes preconfigured with more than 30 of the most common, repetitive chores faced by those who own a home or car. Directive can’t perform the actual task for you, but it’s easy…

Price: Free (in-app purchases) from fave.co/3hcXq5w Smartwatch owners love being able to customize the appearance of the Apple Watch face. With just a few taps on the screen or rotations of the digital crown, no two wrists look the same. But in typical Apple fashion, that personalization stops just short of perfection, since there’s no way for developers to create truly unique third-party watch faces of their own. Instead, Apple Watch lovers must rely on an extensive battery of complications to populate favourite watch faces with data relevant to each person. For those looking to go beyond this limitation, there’s now an ingenious app designed to automatically display a wide range of complications on a given schedule throughout the day. It’s the closest we’ll likely come to custom Apple Watch faces. DYNAMIC COMPLICATIONS Watchsmith…

i tried switching from the 13in macbook pro to the 12.9in ipad pro

I really wanted it to work. A couple of weeks ago I closed my MacBook on a Friday afternoon with no plans to open it for a week. I wasn’t going on holiday – rather, I was testing the theory that the iPad could actually be ‘a computer’. My set-up was as high-end as you could get: a 12.9in iPad Pro with 1TB of storage and cellular connectivity, a Magic Keyboard and Apple Pencil – a set-up that’s more expensive than the 13in MacBook Pro I got it in 2016. It looked great on my desk and felt every bit like the future Apple sells. When I snapped the iPad into its magnetic enclosure, I hoped it could replace my MacBook with a sleek, modern and versatile device. Sadly, it didn’t…

getting started with 2fa

Millions of users have their online accounts compromised every day. Password lists are traded on the dark web, and bad actors use automated processes to try them against lots of accounts and services. Sophisticated phishing attacks attempt to trick you into giving away your password (or the info necessary to reset it) by posing as legitimate services or customer support. Obviously, the best defence against this sort of thing is to have a different, strong, hard-to-guess password for every single account you own. A good password manager like 1Password (fave.co/3320MD2) or LastPass (fave.co/3bAzJCX)is a key component in managing that. But good passwords are not enough. Not a month goes by without another report of millions of passwords potentially compromised, and a computer infected with a virus can simply watch the passwords…
