I recently picked up MindNode for iOS and OS X based on the recommnedations by MacStories (here and here) and Mac Power Users. I’ve only added a couple of projects, but I like it a lot. The interface is very intuitive, not requiring an introduction tutorial. Highly recommended.
I know I’m late on this one, but Clear is one of my favorite and most used apps in iOS. I highly recommend this tasteful, practical app. Its playful design will leave you want to add lists just to use it.
This is long, but interesting. Its conclusions reflect those of everyone I’ve talked to about the SATs as an adult. The ironic thing is that while reading this article over the course of the week, the SAT board announced that they were dropping the Essay portion.

Is it sad that I already own a copy of almost all of these apps? I’m with The Wirecutter, I’ve been using Yahoo Weather to check with weather almost daily with my 5 year old. But, Check the Weather still holds a soft spot since it’s the app I used to teach my daughter to read numbers when she was a pre-K student. And, well (underscore) David Smith is very active in the iOS developer commnity.
