A Few Short Thoughts on Some New-ish Apps

There’s a ton of apps that I have been playing with, but that I simply won’t have the time to write up full thoughts on. Here’s a few that I really want to mention to you.

Sunstroke 1.5

Anthony Drendel launched version 1.5 of his fantastic Fever° client, Sunstroke. The biggest change to this version is the UI — as it has been refreshed and looks quite nice. This is an app I am keeping a close eye on to see how it is adapted to iOS 7.

Drendel wrote up his thoughts on the change here, worth a read if you are interested in the back story of apps.

First Years

This is a neat little app, like the Everyday app, for snapping photos. Except instead of snapping photos of yourself, you get a much cuter target: your child. It’s a neat app, but I’m not sure how long the habit will last — or the value of using it over something like Day One.

This might be the first third-party email client for iOS that sticks — hell not just for iOS, for any computing platform. I like the snippets, I like the design. I like the Instapaper and OmniFocus integration and many many other things. I just started using it, expect more later, but I am happy with it so far.1
