Those show notes took a while.
Huge library of TextExpander snippets?
Great episode, guys. I found a couple new apps to try out.
If you have ever edited out a bunch of Basecamp discussion, feel free to release it as a bonus episode. I find that company and its software endlessly fascinating.
You may be surprised how little I cut from our recordings! I tidy things up and smooth out transitions but I’ve never cut any large chunk since I started in January.
@ismh I think you and I have the exact same feelings about Todoist and waffling back and forth from OmniFocus. I still can’t find anything that fits me quite like Todoist.
@ismh - I use DropBox extensively as well… I tried iCloud drive and it never clicked but I am hoping that the new iOS features make a difference.
I have a question about Dropbox and Google… Since you use DropBox as your “glue”, and you use Google Docs/Drive for collaboration, is there a way that you use them both? Do you sync them or do you just keep two file systems? 1 in Dropbox and the Other in Google Drive??
I don’t keep any files in Google Drive; just documents and spreadsheets I work on with others. Everything else goes in Dropbox, such as recordings, images, etc.
If it weren’t for two-way Google Calendar sync I could see myself using TickTick or Things or… other things. (Better notes, better subtasks, more attractive design, among other reasons.) But Todoist, especially with a Power-up to Trello, is a good experience. Not great, but good enough.
The show notes builds a framework to enhance the listening experience. Thanks
I like that Soulver and Unread were both reference in the show. If you guys have not tried Soulver, there is a new Mac version being released a couple of weeks ago and they have a 30 day trial on the Mac.
Once again a great sho, thanks.
@MacSparky why did you not mention your games ?
I know that there are many freemium, free and bad games out there, but as a nerd and gamer for many years I found that there are many interesting games. On a 12 inch iPad playing tabletop games it is also cool experience.
Here are some picks:
- Panzer Corps (my newest pick)
- Days of Wonder Games (Ticket to Ride, Small World…)
- Blood bowl
Kind regards from Switzerland.
I realized I don’t switch mail apps enough, so trying stock Apple Mail again after a few years with Spark.
Seems Soulver 3 for macOS cannot sync with Soulver 2 on iOS… That’s a huge pity.
Their FAQ recommends keeping both on the Mac, to still allow for sync – which is quite the workaround, and less than ideal…
Any ideas on when the iOS app might see an update? Have they made mention of anything?
Pandemic, a favored cooperative game, the iOS version works well and forces the player to learn the rules.
However, I prefer it on the table top with other team members — 2 to 4 players.
A user on the Overcast Slack was just sharing their upload shortcut. Might this solve the problem you mentioned?
I don’t normally write to this forum, but I specifically logged in to address this specific question! (I know, I’m totally late to this discussion but I only just finished the episode)…
(1) the episode mentioned enjoying playing Risk games. Try Lux DLX! Keeps the simplicity. Also has some great alternative maps. I totally enjoy playing the Punic Wars map, the California map, and the Rome Mini map. https://apps.apple.com/us/app/lux-dlx-3-map-conquest-game/id299813413
(2) Tallowmere. Totally worth it! Once you think you’ve gotten good, try the challenges. Tallowmere 2 is coming out. The developer is just one guy. He could use the support. https://apps.apple.com/us/app/tallowmere/id927350422
