My September 2020 iOS application picks

Software
  • The Equinix Customer Portal is much handier than futzing around in your email or using their mobile site to get data centre access.

  • Ghost doesn’t have an official blog posting app for iOS, but Publisher for Ghost is as good as one for the people I host other blogs for.

  • HE.NET Network Tools has ARP, Bonjour, DNS, iperf, ping, portscans, traceroute, whois, TLS, and more in a polished interface. I’d expect nothing less from the engineers behind Looking Glass.

  • I never thought I’d never see NetNewsWire for iOS, but it’s great to have my favourite Mac RSS reader from back in the day on my portable telephonic device. I just need to figure out if/how I can sync it with TinyTinyRSS on my FreeBSD cloud server.

  • The replacement Nikkei Asian Review application is infinitely better than the old one. Just log in with your subscriber details.

Author bio and support

Me!

Ruben Schade is a technical writer and IaaS engineer in Sydney, Australia who refers to himself in the third person in bios. Wait, not BIOS… my brain should be EFI by now.

The site is powered by Hugo, FreeBSD, and OpenZFS on OrionVM, everyone’s favourite cloud infrastructure provider.

If you found this post helpful or entertaining, you can shout me a coffee or buy some silly merch. Thanks!
