“What’s tech/software/app that is (a) run by indie devs/small co and (b) that you feel great paying for? ¶ two of mine: ¶ @BearNotesApp @OvercastFM” – @hunterwalk
I guarantee I’m forgetting some stuff. This might be updated in the future.
Web & iOS
- Innologica: Inoreader. RSS for power-users. This is how I consume everything from email newsletters and blogs to giant feeds of SEC filings.
- Overcast: Podcasts.
- GoodNotes: Digital notebook that pairs well with Apple Pencil.
- CARROT: Weather, mostly for the sassy bot as a shell for DarkSky
- Omnigroup: OmniOutliner
- Smile Software: TextExpander
- Devon Technologies: DEVONagent (web browser with very deep search and topic network visualization I use for research), DEVONthink (Like locally-hosted Evernote, but terrifyingly more flexible. I use this for researching big projects and managing different knowledge bases.)
- Information Architects: iA Writer, IMO the best minimalist Markdown editor experience (with lots of great keyboard shortcuts), but it has some bugs with syncs and versioning
- Agile Turtle: Drafts 5, the MacOS beta of which was so compelling that I upgraded to Mojave from Sierra just to try it.
- Omnigroup: OmniFocus Pro (yes, OmniOutliner is also available on iOS but I don’t use it there)
- Tapbots: Tweetbot, for twitter list tracking
