Non-WordPress Stuff I Cannot Live Without

This is a list of software, tools and other stuff I use that doesn't revolve around WordPress.


I could not live without this one. If you need a way to manage all of those crazy passwords, this is your answer.




I couldn't do this list without Apple. My first one was that I bought was in the mid-80's a Macintosh 128K. Since then, well I have never looked back and always had a Mac at my side. Currently I have a iMac, an extra Apple monitor, a AirBook, iPad and iPhone. And let us not forget all the apps I use as well.

Audacity: Free Audio Editor and Recorder

This is what I use in my first step in creating my podcast. It's been around a long time and you cannot go wrong with this free software for recording audio.

Camtasia for Mac

As long as I have been recording video tutorials, this has been what I used. It gives me all I need and, well, even more.

Camtasia gives you the tools you need to record on-screen activity, edit and enhance your content, and share in high-quality anywhere.

Fetch Softworks

For an FTP server, this is what I have used for years and years. I do like FileZilla and recommend it a lot, but myself, well, I'm an old dog and Fetch as always worked for me.

Friend or Follow

Yes, every once in awhile I see who has stopped following me on Twitter. And often, I return the favor.


Yes, I do prefer to use an outside service for my newsletter, etc. And unlike many of my WP friends and peeps, I prefer it over using a WP plugin.  

MailChimp is the best way to design, send, and share email newsletters.

Reeder for Mac

Yes, I still subscribe to a lot of blog via RSS. When Reeder 1 came out I started using it and was always happy. For a time though, when Feedburner burnt out, it wasn't working. But now Reeder 2 is back and so am I with using it.


The simplest way to keep notes. Light, clean, and free. is now available for iOS, Android, Mac, and the web. Download for iOS Download for Android Download for Mac Download for Kindle What makes Simplenote great? Use it everywhereYour notes stay updated across all your devices. No buttons to press. It just works. Stay…




Seems like it's been around for me for sometime. Not always my first choice, but it sure makes things easy when I need it.

Snagit: The Ultimate Screen Capture Tool for Mac and Windows

I do believe I use this app several times a day. Snagit allows you to grab an image or video of what you see on your computer screen, add effects, and share with anyone.

The workspace for your life’s work | Evernote

How do I organize all my stuff? Keep track of the plugins, themes and WP tuts that I find online.

Bring your life's work together in one digital workspace. Evernote is the place to collect inspirational ideas, write meaningful words, and move your important projects forward.


Okay, I admitted I use Tweetdeck for my desktop and laptop. But since it doesn't exist of iOS, Tweetbot does the trick for me there.


I have used Tweetdeck since it has come out. I tried other desktop services for Twitter, but always end up coming back to this one.
