Automators 25: WWDC 2019 Automation Update
In episode 25 of Automators David and I sat down together in person, with the help of his suitcase and some shoes, we were able to record a full episode in person!
OmniFocus for Web Review: Access Your Tasks Everywhere
OmniFocus for the Web has released today! I ran through all the key features over on MacStories. I love that today is launch day but already in the beta version OmniGroup have new features (namely the Forecast view!) - and WWDC is right around the corner next week so they're clearly working hard.
Automators 24: Automating with AirTable
In the latest episode of Automators David and I went crazy over AirTable - we use it to plan Automators which makes our life so much easier, that combined with the automations you can attach to this meant it was the perfect topic for an episode of Automators!
How to Change the Double-tap Settings on Your AirPods
This post was inspired by a friend who commented that it was silly both AirPods triggered the same action when you double tap them - you can change it, one action for each AirPod!
Timery, the Toggl App, has landed!
Review: Waterfield Staad Backpack (Slim)
When I was in Chicago for MPU Live in March I took the opportunity to order a Waterfield Staad backpack to my hotel to bring back with me. I'd been intrigued by their bags for quite some time, but after seeing MacGenie with one of these at PodCon, and seeing MacSparky's Sling bag at the same event, I was convinced I wanted the bag.
Shortcuts for Accessibility
Today is Global Accessibility Awareness Day and I'm really pleased to see that Apple has updated the Shortcuts gallery to highlight some Shortcuts targeted at solving some of the problems people face every day. These shortcuts include:
Pushcut: Smart Notifications Kick Off Your Shortcuts
As I've talked about on Automators before, I have used Zapier to send notifications to my iPhone which trigger Shortcuts - this means that I can have a series of automated actions happen and follow it up with something I need to manually do. I've been using PushBullet and Pushover to do this - I've tried both and they're both good, but they're designed for notifications and the URLs triggering automations is not something it was designed to do. Additionally PushBullet still hasn't been updated for the iPhone X(s) screen format. Pushover has been updated more recently, but it still doesn't quite match up with what Pushcut can do as a dedicated app.
Automators 23: Diving into Drafts Automation with Tim "The Drafts Man" Nahumck
I was really excited when Tim Nahumck agreed to come onto Automators to talk about Drafts! In the last year the app has increased in power so much, as well as gaining a Mac app, and now seemed like the perfect time to cover it.
