The Thing With Things

It’s getting to the point where I need a todo app to manage my todo apps. I’ve just spent another few weeks with **Things**, which is a gorgeous app, but the way it works doesn’t seem to work with the way my brain works, which isn’t ideal. It _does_ work for the way I use my iPad, but not my iPhone frustratingly.

**GoodTask** will always, inevitably, draw me back again, however. I have to use a PC for work, so the fact I can access Reminders, which GoodTask sits on top of, from iCloud.com is pretty hard to give up.

Now even **TickTick** has taken my fancy again. This app sits in the middle of them both. It can hook into Reminders _and_ has its own standalone syncing service.

Email clients used to be my weakness, but Mail.app does all I need on that front. Now my issue is todo apps.

Is Focus Important?

For anyone interested, I recently launched a short form podcast called *Upload*. It’s a (roughly) weekly show around some tech based topics. I’m only 6 episodes in, and the content has been fairly varied.
I wanted to make a more general techie show, but I’ve started to think I should maybe start making the show a bit more focused.

What do you guys think? Do you like a more _personal_ podcast that’s quite loose and free flowing? Or would you prefer a podcast with a very specific focus / topic?

If you wanted to check out an episode or two, any feedback is welcome. You can find links to the iTunes, Castro, Pocket Casts, Overcast and general RSS feed [here.](http://andynicolaides.com/podcast)
