Time to Go Mobile

If you read my 2014 Predictions, then you know that I don’t believe that we are going to see a lot of huge leaps in mobile hardware or OS technology in the next year. Software from third party developers however will be a different story. Indeed, it is my belief that 2014 is the year that large numbers of normal users are going to begin using their mobile devices as the power personal computers they really are – in many ways, a mobile device is a far more personal computer than an actual PC at this point.

I’m going to be one of these brave few and will therefore start featuring and reviewing applications that I use on a variety of devices. However, I am not going to artificially promise to review an app per week. Nor am I going to worry about making sure all platforms get the same amount of coverage. My goal is to honestly review and recommend apps that I use regularly on whatever platform.

Since these are apps that I actually use, there will be no negative reviews – in fact, there’ll be no scoring at all, as I find the star or X out ten scoring systems to be arbitrary at best. Think of these apps as my picks and treat them that way. If you like what I like and you find something that you start to use often from these posts, then please let me know on Twitter or Google+.
