Exquisite* Applications to make your day to day life easier


December 2nd, 2010

Recipy needed a way to go shopping.

I mean, the iPad is so great, but perhaps not ideal at the grocery store. While the iPhone is … just right.

So what Recipy needed was a way to send its shopping list to the iPhone… Sounds easy! Well, except if you think emailing your shopping list is the way, that did not look so easy with any existing app.

Since I’ve been using DropBox for a while, using it to share the shopping list with the iPhone was a pretty logical next step.

What I did not expect, though, is that this new app would actually take a life of its own, and sure, it will work great with Recipy, but it is also ideal for GTD, managing your To Do List, handling your Shopping List, even your Honey-Do list, and of course your Wish List.

And therefore, 1List was born! Check it out at 1listapp.com. It should be available soon in the App Store!

Calling for a few beta testers for Recipy

November 16th, 2010

Yes, it’s finally here! The beta of Recipy!

I’m looking for a few people to help test Recipy before it goes out into the wild. I’m looking for people who have an iPad (obviously), and love to cook.

If you are interested, send me a email using the contact form, include a short explanation of why you’d like to be included in the beta, and how you can help.

Also, if you have an iPhone, or iPod touch, do let me know :) You’ll understand why very soon.
