Each month1 I like to look back and see where I've been spending my device time2. These are the apps that have got the most screen time so far this month.



  1. iBooks
  2. Tweetbot
  3. Feedly
  4. Overcast Overcast, free but worth supporting via it's 'Premium' subscription (which turns of ads and gives you a few more settings to fiddle with.
  5. OmniFocus

Honourable mentions this month include Monument Valley 2 and all of the 2017 Apple Design Award winners… which consumed way to much time.


  1. RealEstate yes, have to do the moving house dance again
  2. iBooks
  3. Fantastical 2
  4. Feedly
  5. OmniFocus

iBooks moved up in a big may in June thanks to John Safran's book "Depends What You Mean by Extremist - Going Rogue with Australian Deplorables" (thanks to the @RiskyBiz podcast for that one) and Jeff VanderMeer new book "Borne". After reading Margaret Atwood's book "The Handmaid's Tale" — I'd decided to take a break from the dystopia's and yet I read those two… go figure!?!


  1. Xcode (Duh…)
  2. IntelliJ Idea
  3. Tweetbot for Twitter - well it is open, all day
  4. Fantastical 2
  5. OmniFocus hmmm, managing myself seems to be an obsession

Honourable mentions this month include Xcode 9 Beta, BBedit and Adobe Photoshop for all the usual reasons.
