No, not that Yoko, and not that Apple. This Yoko is the companion of AWT reader Nathan Federman and his girlfriend, and Nathan is more than a little concerned that she’s a bit more of an Apple fan than he is. As Nathan notes, “she has taken over several of our Apple products.”
iOS developer Christopher Adam Overholtzer is my kindred spirit, and we’ve never even met.
In the press kit for his app Cheatsheet Quick Reference and Notes (universal, free with in-appp purchase), he notes:
“Cheatsheet was made by Adam Overholtzer, a UX designer and iOS developer living in California. He never remembers his employee ID number.”
I was never able to remember my employee ID number, either. Or my wife’s PO Box combination. Or where I parked the car. Or where my damn keys are. Fortunately for me, Christopher has done something about that. Cheatsheet Quick Reference and Notes (or “Cheatsheet” as I’ll call it for the sake of brevity), is a dead-simple way to get tap-swipe reminders in your iPhone’s Notification Center. There’s a big old caveat with this one, but it shouldn’t pose a problem for the intelligent user. Here’s my look at Cheatsheet for iPhone and iPad.
The idea here is simple and brilliant: create glance-friendly reminders of the little things we tend to forget right on your iPhone’s lock screen. All you need is a bit of text and a relevant icon. Here’s how to set it up.
It’s an exciting time right now, with many new apps and accessories being announced for the Apple Watch. On Thursday, DODOcase introduced the Dual Charging Dock organizer, which uses the company’s bookbinding skills to full advantage in a small book-like organizer that holds a Watch charger and other items. Now Pad & Quill has outdone itself and competitors with the Timber Catchall (starting at US$99), a dual iPhone and iWatch charging stand hand crafted from American Cherry, Mahogany ($119), or Walnut ($139).
The Timber Catchall folds for portability while traveling, but looks to be most at home on a nightstand. In its unfolded state, it holds your Apple Watch in a perfect position to charge on its “puck” while displaying its beauty. Guiding your charging cables into the correct locations, the Timber Catchall can also keep your iPhone topped off either laid flat or propped with one of Pad & Quill’s iPhone cases like the Bella Vida.
The Timber Catchall joins Pad & Quill’s other Apple Watch accessories, including the Luxury Pocket Stand, Luxury Travel Kit, Roll Up Kit, and Luxury Travel Pouch. Preorder now, as the Pad & Quill accessories are sure to be popular when they arrive in mid to late May.
