Anchor – Who wants to be an RJ?

When Preshit first asked me to check Anchor out, I was rather surprised. I had no idea what I would use it for. I’m completely at ease listening to online radio (in fact, I do it a wee bit too often.

Bear’s 1.1 Update is like a Nice, Warm Hug

We written about Bear here on Beautiful Pixels, so we’re sure you’re aware of how much we love this versatile, powerful, and scrumptiously designed note-taking app. ShinyFrog, the developers, have just launched version 1.1 of their pride and joy, and it is a delight to behold.

The sheer number of terms floating out there is enough to make even the most hardened of linguists struggle, not to mention remembering subtle differences, such as the one between ‘Gross’ and ‘Net’.
