Celebrate summer with a cocktail and some light product reading!
  1. Many of us at Postlight are big Alfred users because… productivity! Their new update had a lot of us excited, especially the improved snippet functionality. (via Jeremy Mack)
  2. Ever wish your friends would telepathically know you’re in a screenshare and just not text you? This potentially career-saving Mac app switches on Do Not Disturb whenever you’re not the only one looking at your screen. (via Matt Quintanilla)
  3. Speaking of productivity, when I need to focus there’s little that works better than some great headphones and ambient noise. Here’s a nifty white noise website that is so much better than those Youtube videos. If you’d prefer a white noise app, we’ve got you covered. (via Jeremy Mack and Chris LoSacco)
  4. Meet Oskar, a Slack bot that’s a “happiness tracker” asking you and your team to rate how they feel on a 1–5 scale. We wonder if asking someone how they’re doing can really be outsourced to a bot. (via Nick Beattie)
  5. Half of our engineering team works remotely, so we’ve become experts at keeping everyone on the same page. The Remote Starter Kit has a couple of our tried and tested favorites, but also some new tools that are new to us. (via Matthew Famularo)
