This week, we’ll eye-love five apps.


Each of the apps has repeatedly passed my Zen focus on renunciation (of crap I don’t need). It’s a focus that’s helped me ween myself off a many-thousand-fold vinyl collection (only one case of records accompanied me from Sydney to New York in 2011). It’s a focus that sees me sneak-attack unnecessary things at home then sneak them into the trash (if something goes missing my wife and children assume I sneak-attacked it). It’s a focus that sees me primarily use recycled, loose-leaf paper for note-taking rather than notebooks.

Whether I’m using it to follow a routine at the gym or trying to find that hole-in-the wall dive bar my friends are at, I have to constantly unlock and check my phone. popSLATE might be the coolest solution to my problem.

Dark Sky: Rain Forecaster App

Anyone that’s been to Portland knows it rains a lot. This iOS micro-weather app is especially helpful to us because we like to walk, bike and take advantage of nature, which surrounds us here and is easily accessible.

Dark Sky basically only does two things, but it does them well. First, it graphs out the expected rain intensity for the next hour. You can quickly see when the rain is coming, and how hard it will fall.

Second, it alerts you before the rain comes. You can set the threshold to light, medium or heavy, and an alert will be sent shortly before that threshold is expected to be reached.
