Neat’s new mobile app makes going paperless easier than ever

Neat’s new mobile app makes going paperless easier than ever

I’ve been using the Neat app on iOS for some time, and I’ve found that I generally use it more often than my NeatDesk scanner. The ability to scan my receipts and business cards while at events is far more efficient than holding on to them all in a semi-organized fashion until I get home.

The team at 6Wunderkinder had a great thing going with Wunderlist, but it was only supposed to be the first small step in the team’s foray into task management.

Top alternatives to Mail App for iPhone and iPad

Top alternatives to Mail App for iPhone and iPad

Let’s face it…not everyone is a fan of Apple’s native Mail app for iOS. Generally speaking, if you’re not a fan of it on the Mac, you’re likely not going to appreciate the iOS version very much either. And while there’s rarely the ability to get around having to use Mail when using other apps that allow for email to be sent (iOS doesn’t really like any other email clients being used to send email), there are some other options you can get that can help you steer clear of Mail as often as possible.
