July 21: Apps I’m Using This Week

It’s another week, which means more apps. There hasn’t been too much that aren’t games, but there are still some goodies to look at. Check out what I’ve been trying out lately…

Checkmark: This is like Reminders Pro. If you are setting up geofence reminders often, then this is definitely the best way to do it. Set up your most frequently visited locations, and then add tasks to them and be reminded when you arrive or depart from the area. The reminder can even be set to go off after a delay, which you can’t do in Apple’s Reminders app. Checkmark even supports normal time-based reminders, so you have all of your bases covered. The app looks gorgeous as well.

Scratch — Your Quick-Input Notepad: This is like Drafts, except with a prettier face. The app is incredibly fast to start up, and it features a keyboard extension with common punctuation marks and Markdown formatting to make writing a bit easier. Keep a history of your notes, and export them several ways. While the app certainly has its own set of powerful features, it does lack the third-party developer support that is in Drafts, so there are less export options. But it serves as a great way to quickly jot down anything that you think of.
