I have been a long term premium Todoist user for many years and I do not anticipate that changing. However, due to lockdown boredom, I have started looking at other productivity software after watching some videos on the excellent Keep Productive YouTube channel run by Francesco D’Alessio, including Notion and TickTick.
Notion I just could not get my head around, but I think that probably that says more about my head than Notion. TickTick, however, offered a tantalising alternative to conventional task managers and I have spent some time watching YouTube reviews and tutorials and written reviews.
Right now there is a lot of disappointment and frustration with Evernote, feelings that I share as I have been a long-term Evernote user since 2008 and am far from happy with the direction my once must-have service is going. I won’t go too much into the reasons but suffice to say the latest V10 offering has taken away some functionality, including the vital backing up of all notes via a right-click. Also, the drag n drop files into a new note functionality disappeared for quite some time but that has, thankfully, been restored.
I never really thought I would have to do this, but I have decided to look around for a new service and I believe I have found it with Nimbus Note.
Newton email has released its first major update since the service was acquired by Justin Mitchell and Maitrik Kataria from the previous owner after a troubled Flightline. In an email to users, Maitrik says: ” We are super happy to announce the update for Newton mail across all platforms. This release is a huge milestone for us. Our work for the past quarter has helped us create a solid base for the future ahead. After building up the team from scratch, including our wonderful support team, we have slowly progressed towards gaining an understanding of millions of lines of Newton code and the complexities involved.”
Every now and again a new VPN technology bursts onto the scene that promises to change the way that existing technologies work. New kid on the block WireGuard is just such a technology and it is slowly finding its way into mainstream VPN services, slowly but surely. NordVPN has incorporated it as NordLynx and others including Surfshark and IVPN. So, just what is WireGuard.
