Time Zone Converter and World Clock

Thanks to the internet culture today, working across different time zones has become a routine task in most professions. Figuring out what time to schedule or attend meetings with your remote colleagues is almost a daily occurrence. We’ve looked at several different time zone converter apps here on Beautiful Pixels over the last decade. My personal favorites have been Zones, Shift and Miranda.

Things 3.1 — “Let’s Put a Smile back on that Face”

When we recently reviewed Things 3 a couple of months ago, Preshit had wonderful things (see what I did there?) to say about it – from its achingly beautiful design, to spectacular transitions, and much more in between.

Things 3: The Return of the Delightful To-Do App from Cultured Code

If my memory serves me correctly, Cultured Code’s Things was one of the first 3rd-party apps I’d spent serious money on. I first came across the app when Shawn Blanc — my favorite source of app recommendations back then — wrote this extensive review of Things on his blog. I was new to the whole “GTD” concept, but there was something very peculiar and attractive about how Things looked and worked. I was instantly hooked. And so were several others,...
