Wunderkit for iPhone

A productivity app that actually helps you work

Wunderkit helps you work. That’s what a productivity app should do, of course, but some unnecessarily bog you down in details. In contrast, Wunderkit—a free iPhone offering from 6 Wunderkinder—makes it easy to create projects and schedule tasks. And it’s better than many competing apps at recognizing the realities of the workplace.

Those realities? Well, for one, most of us rarely work alone. So Wunderkit is collaborative, letting you invite colleagues from Facebook, Twitter, or your iPhone’s contact list as participants in the “work spaces” you create for projects. (Those work spaces can be public or private — choose the former option, and Wunderkit becomes a kind of social network of its own, letting you follow or be followed by anybody else who opts not to raise the privacy shields.)

Another workplace reality? We don’t do all our work on the iPhone. The service is cloud-based, enabling you to put down your phone and organize tasks and projects from your desktop computer. By not confining your task management to a single device—as some competing apps do—the Wunderkit app becomes easier and more attractive to use.

The app mostly works well, but not always: It repeatedly was unable to connect with Facebook while I was using it, and colleagues I invited to a workspace didn’t always receive their invitations.

If those bugs can be fixed, Wunderkit will be nearly perfect. Until then, it’s merely quite good.

HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
