Helpful Life Tools

In our day to day process in designing, developing, and producing it is always good to know what the next new thing is that can help with our process. A couple areas I have recently focused on is password management, WordPress management, and audio.

Password Management

We are constantly building more and more passwords with the next new social media site, our email accounts, and any other online app out there. I have a huge list of passwords that I keep track of in an Evernote page securely, until I found Password Box.

PasswordBox is an innovative free identity manager that removes the hassle of logging into all your browsers, apps, and devices, with its 1-Tap and 1-Click login. They’re on a mission to rid people of passwords and make the adoption of new authentication as simple and seamless as possible. PasswordBox is the only integration-free tool to bridge the gap between passwords, biometrics, and future online authentication technologies.

Some features include:
Auto Login
Streamlined Checkout
Share and protect online accounts
Use it on any platform

WordPress Management

I have been using WordPress for the last 5 years and it is constantly changing and evolving. It is the main tool I use for creating websites for my clients and I am always learning something new with each project I get. Recently I have been looking into ways to manage updates for the growing number of sites I am maintaining.

WP Remote is the best free service I came across. It is super simple to install and use to monitor all of your WP websites from one place.

AUDIO

I’ve been working a lot with the wide variety of audio apps available these days. Using them in synch for my band. The possibilities are endless now for music that won’t make you go broke on music gear. Some of these apps come packaged with multiple rigs and replicated instruments all packaged into a tiny pad. Being a drummer I have recently discovered an incredible app called DM1 made by Fingerlab.
