The apps, platforms and businesses redefining how we use computers

  • Ulysses is now a damn good WordPress editor for Mac and iOS

    Ulysses is now a damn good WordPress editor for Mac and iOS

    This might sound like inside baseball, but I’ve been using Ulysses for all my writing for a few months now. It’s a rock-solid, well-designed writing app for iOS and macOS. And now, the app lets you publish on any WordPress website with a native export screen, among other things. Read More

  • Apple Music exits beta on Android with 3.3 stars

    Apple Music exits beta on Android with 3.3 stars

    Apple released its music streaming service for Android phones as a beta in November 2015. Nine months later, the app is now official at version 1.0. And yet, it only has an average rating of 3.3 stars on the Play Store. Read More

  • Jack Dorsey gets a much-needed strong second quarter performance from Square

    Jack Dorsey gets a much-needed strong second quarter performance from Square

    Jack Dorsey really needs a hit. After Twitter’s weak second-quarter showing, and both stocks not performing well in the past year, Dorsey — as the lead of both companies — needs to show investors his strategies are working (and that he can run both companies). Well, he certainly got one today. Square reported its second-quarter earnings, where it brought in $439 million… Read More

  • Accompany’s digital chief-of-staff application launches in beta

    Accompany’s digital chief-of-staff application launches in beta

    Many executives and employees have need for a role that’s basically a “chief of staff” — someone who keeps track of all the details about everyone they encounter and are headed off to meet in their professional careers. But there’s plenty of information that they might be missing out on, and as you head downstream to smaller companies those roles are just as… Read More

  • Dropbox launches an iPhone and Android version of its document-editing app Paper

    Dropbox launches an iPhone and Android version of its document-editing app Paper

    It’s an interesting time for Dropbox’s document-building tool, Paper. Quip, in a similar vein to Paper, was bought for a whopping $750 million by Salesforce earlier this week. This deal surprised a ton of people, but made a lot of sense given that Salesforce has seemingly been dipping its toes into collaboration software. So Quip is a great, and natural, fit for Salesforce and… Read More

  • Inside Facebook’s new “Area 404” hardware lab

    Inside Facebook’s new “Area 404” hardware lab

    This is where Facebook will prototype its solar drones, Internet-beaming lasers, VR headsets, and next-gen servers. The problem with moving faster than most companies is that Facebook was plagued by delays whenever it had to outsource prototyping and testing of its gadgets and gizmos. With so much hardware on its 10-year roadmap, and quarter after quarter of profits stacking up, it made sense… Read More

  • Our favorite companies from 500 Startups’ 17th batch

    500 Startups’ 17th round of its incubator is wrapping up, and a total of 42 companies presented at its demo day in Mountain View on Tuesday. It was quite an impressive batch. Companies that came on stage touted their growth and that they were already generating revenue from their operations. It kind of goes to show how the way startups are valued, and what the startups are focusing on… Read More

  • Pokémon Go tops $160M in global revenue, time spent in-app remains high

    Pokémon Go tops $160M in global revenue, time spent in-app remains high

    I’m still trying to deal with losing Pokévision, too, but Niantic’s recent changes to the game don’t seem to be putting a damper on player appetite just yet — new data from analytics firm Sensor Tower reveals that users are still spending, on average, around 26 minutes per day in the app in the U.S., which is actually a slight increase compared to the average play… Read More

  • Video distribution startup Zype raises $2M

    Video distribution startup Zype raises $2M

    Zype has raised another $2 million as it helps publishers deliver (and make money from) video across devices. Added to the $1.6 million that Zype announced last year, this brings the New York City startup’s seed round to $3.6 million. The round was led by Revel Partners, with participation from Point Nine Capital, Alpine Meridian Ventures, Berlin Ventures, Entrepreneurs Investment Fund… Read More
