Five Things (October 16, 2018)

It’s time for yet another list of things I’ve enjoyed recently. This time it’s a mix between gadgets and apps, with a dash of booze. Sounds pretty good, right? I certainly think so…

  • Let’s get it over with: The iPhone XS Max is great in every single way. I’m reading a lot more — again — thanks to the larger, and utterly brilliant, screen.
  • I haven’t played a lot of games the past year or so, but I’m slowly getting back into it. Currently I’m enjoying a quirky RPG called Golf Story, for the Nintendo Switch. It reminds me of the original Mario Golf game, which was great.
  • I’m thrilled that I can get Blanton’s Single Barrel in Sweden again. It’s a very tasty bourbon, not too sweet, and I like it a lot. So much better than the somewhat bland Gold Edition.
  • Remember Flipboard? I’ve been using it for a couple of weeks, and it’s become a part of my media consumption habits. The majority of articles I read end up in Pocket, though.
  • Been writing with iA Writer for a long time now, and I can’t recommend it enough. The latest update adds support for hashtags, which is particularly useful. Available for a bunch of platforms, check it out.

There are more Things Enjoyed, if you’re into this sort of thing. And as always, do tell me about the stuff you like by sending a tweet to @tdh.
