Duet Display App Half-Price (Do Yourself a Favor and Buy It!)

image

Let me start by saying Duet Display is the most expensive app I've ever bought (on sale for $7.99), but is worth every penny. Duet Display is on sale because it's featured in the App Store this week under the productivity section. So, since I'm a sucker for productivity apps (maybe it's the illusion of productivity they give me!) and it is on sale, I figured I'd buy it to try it out. The concept is simple: the app allows your iPad or iPhone (iOS 7.0+) to be an extended display for your Mac (OSX 10.9+). Just install some software, restart your computer, and plug in your iPad to your Mac. It's as simple as that.

If you're a shift worker, look no further than Shifts for your scheduling needs.

Some weeks, I babysit, and others I don't. Every week, I have classes, except during holidays. Sure, these aren't shifts, but they provide the perfect example. With the calendar app Shifts ($1.99), I can create a "shift" programmed with the hours I work every week.
