Software I use – Updated
On this page I list the software I use mostly on a daily basis.
Five years ago I published the software I used on a daily basis. Now I’ve updated the list with my current software setup.
Note taking / to do
I use pen and paper, mostly. Otherwise I use the Notes app on IOS.
I also occasionally use Microsoft OneNote.
Don’t use it anymore – to complicated.
Evernote – My (long-term) memory
Evernote is also mostly replaced by the Notes app and the Reminders app on IOS.
Day One – Daily notes – Don’t use this anymore.
Byword – For plain text documents Mail.app – Front end for all my email – Replaced by Outlook for my business email. Gmail – I mainly use Mail.app but sometimes I find Gmail more convenient.
Fantastical – Great for making quick meetings
Safari – For browsing the internet
Chrome – I use Chrome voor occasional development.
FireFox – But it has some performance issues.
iTunes – For listening to music
AppleScript – For productivity enhancements

JottaCloud – Backup in the cloud
TextExpender – Type more with less
Cobook – Integrate all your contacts – It’s all in Outlook now. BetterTouchTool – You can do some much with the touchpad. I prefer a mouse.
