We’re intrigued by women who make tech, how women use tech, whether it enriches women’s lives, or makes them want to smash things. We’re particularly curious about mobile apps. Check in here for reviews and our thoughts on a variety of apps.

Facetime

My god I hate facetime.

That is all.

Newsletters are News Again

I am weary of social media. The snide comments. The inflammatory headlines for boring articles. The ordinary people setting themselves up as experts on topics actual experts spent decades becoming knowledgeable about. The endless ads for washable shoes and girdles.

YouTube

According to Mandy of MediaMandy, YouTube is the 3rd largest search engine on the interweb. That’s amazing to me. I normally use YouTube to watch SNL skits.

Vocabulary Builder

Vocabulary Builder by Magoosh is fun! I really like apps that seem like a game but I am actually learning something. I don’t know why. I do not watch high brow TV, I read mostly genre fiction and I never took a standardized test if I could avoid it. I’ve never taken the SAT or the ACT or even a PSAT. Standardized tests aren’t my thing, I think I might be bad at them. Read more

Notes

Notes

I used to have lists everywhere. They mostly lived on the backs of envelopes but ever since I signed up for ebills, the envelopes have dried up.

And so I discovered the magic of the notes app on the iphone. Read more

YNAB

YNAB
