A Mindful Approach to Technology →

Mike Schmitz over at The Sweet Setup:

Our goal at The Sweet Setup has always been to help you find the best apps for your iPhone, iPad, and Mac. But over the past several years, we’ve found that the word “best” has changed in meaning a little bit.

Instead of more, often what we consider to be the “best” app is the one that actually ends up doing less. Less, but better. The best app is often the one that allows you to easily do what you came for, then releases you to get back to what is really important. The best app is the one that allows you to honestly answer “yes” to the question:

Here at The Sweet Setup, we want to do the same. So over the next several weeks, we’ll be looking at apps that help facilitate a mindful approach to your technology — apps that make interaction with your device a net positive.

I firmly believe that the “best” app does not necessarily have the be the one that does the most. The Sweet Setup has always been pretty good in this regard (other than their “best radar app” selection 🙃), so I am glad to see them double down on this approach.

I look forward to see what they come up with.
