Keychain is probably one of my favorite parts of the Apple ecosystem and I think it’s pretty underrated. Having passwords synced between my phone and laptop is great and I’ve encountered very few…

I know it’s not a great answer, but I’ve mainly just relied on Font Book on macOS. 🥴

I did try FontBase and a few others, but always felt like I was missing something relative to the price paid…

I think the biggest factor is how often you’ll deal with outside documents coming in that will be in an Office format.

For example, if your company gets countless .docx files that will lose styling…

I’ve been using it for several months since the start of this year.

Overall, I find it super useful for a few reasons. Firstly, the price for using their panel is much cheaper than other platforms…

I know this is a loaded question, but I'm curious on a general level of what tools companies or people prefer to use together.

For stuff I want to utilize multiple times, like a color generator, I created a few main category folders and then a ton of…

I'm definitely interested, but as @itsjackcohen said, I'm very concerned about how this application exports into other formats since that almost always ends up an issue at some point.

Someone made a…

I'm pretty much completely embedded in the Apple ecosystem right now, so currently, my workflow is putting long-term stuff in Notes and categorizing it all in folders and more short-term stuff like…

I tend to work remotely and here are some things I've picked up over time:

  • Do daily, asynchronous standups so everyone is kept on the same page about tasks

I'm super integrated into the Apple ecosystem, so Safari is pretty much my go-to.

Whoops, I messed up the formatting there. Basically Slack for all general communications. Geekbot for daily standups. Notion as an HQ with all relevant files and documentation for non-development…

For design handoff it really varies.

If I’m trying to work with another designer, I will upload the file to Sketch Cloud and have them download from there. Once they make edits and save, their…
