Agenda is an interesting note-taking, todo kind of thing. Super nice design, syncs across everything Apple. Won’t replace Ulysses (probably the most useful app I’ve used in the last two years) for writing or Bear for notes (highly recommended - ditch Evernote why don’t you?), but still interesting.
Unsplash: free, high-quality images. Mixmax has saved me countless hours of scheduling chores. Day One is my go to for journaling.
