  1. A very interesting episode and there are a number of apps that I will review.

    @Thanh – the mail app that has completely replaced the stock iOS app for me is “Outlook” (recently bought and renamed by Microsift).

    I regularly use Windows, OSX, iOS and Android – as a result, I’m far more concerned with making sure my data can be accessed on multiple platforms. Evernote and Dropbox support are essential for this (as touched upon in the podcast ). However, if the app is available on all platforms then that’s OK too (Kindle, zinio, etc).

  2. This Episode was very helpful. Just one open question on my side: Thanh, you use editorial on iOS so what are you using on Mac? I’d like to have editorial on Mac though.

  3. Good lists. When it comes out, hopefully in the next few months, I hope you’ll add Scrivener for iOS to the list. The Mac and Windows versions makes book-length writing an absolute delight, the iOS version is likely to do the same for those on the go. From what I’ve heard, the only features that’ll be lacking will be those connected with exporting for publication.

    And it’s valuable for anyone who writes in their daily life as a repository of those writings (i.e. of blog posts), not just working writers.

    1. Yeah I’m looking forward to that release. I’m sure we’ll do another show at some point about iOS apps – it’s a constant evolving topic.

  4. Hi!

    What was the name of the app what other of you mentioned with the Byword app? He said he likes to write with Byword and x app. It’s a Mac app but it has iOS beta going on? Can’t find the app from the list. Really wanted to try that on Mac.

    Thanks!
