What are people's favorite duplicate managers for Mac? Leaning towards Gemini 2 but want to hear about other opinions or apps.

People who manage their finances, how do you budget when apps are either one big purchase, say $20 or more or monthly but for the whole year (Sanebox $99)?

I budget hardware at a 3 year cycle. That gives me enough flexibility to exhange my ipads sooner and my Macs I keep around longer.

So I'm currently student teaching. My issue is task management. I am a big user of Omnifocus and GTD. For student teaching though I've just captured tasks in a Google Doc and Wunderlist. Should I keep this system or transfer stuff to Omnifocus for one system? I like the separation personally but not sure how I feel. Also realizing that many of my Omnifocus tasks aren't super urgent.

Absolutely +Aaron Antcliff . As good as GTD is, sometimes it comes off as spending too much time sorting tasks instead of just doing tasks.

+Warren Butler loving Spark right now. The only frustration I have with it is no landscape or iPad app, but other than that it's fantastic.

Thank you +Rose Orchard much appreciated. The problem though would be that I'd have to have Firefox open all the time. Wish I could run it headless too.

I'm a Launchbar user but I am looking at the features of Alfred. The workflows aspect seems pretty cool. Do any Launchbar users utilize Alfred too or have they enabled the features to work with Launchbar instead of Alfred?

I was a Launchbar user. I still prefer their folder navigation. However, the text is bigger with Alfred (my eyes need the help) and I am not in a rush to finish what I am typing since Alfred waits for you.

I accidentally deleted texts from a friend on my iPhone. Also conveniently don't have iCloud backup enabled in my phone... Is there any hope to recover these texts which are mostly iMessages?

First I would try what Jan suggested. But if that doesn't work, backup both your iPhone and iPad through iTunes, and then use a tool like iMazing (they have a free trial) to replace or merge your iMessages from the iPhone with the ones on your iPad. iMazing can modify the iTunes backups and then can restore the backup to your iPhone. Read all the help on the iMazing sight before you start.

I've used iMazing in the past to wipe my iPhone and start fresh with everything except keeping my iMessages. I haven't moved iMessages from one device to another, but in theory it should work (hopefully, in practice, too).

Hope that works for you.

Just wanted to say that the difference after replacing my aging White Macbook 2010 regular HD with an SSD drive is night and day, life is so much faster and the computer doesn't lead me to more frustration. Mac Power Users, your awesome and I'm forever grateful to be surrounding by people who care as much about Apple products as me!

+Aaron Antcliff Previously I was having issues with force quitting, launching applications, and general working. I already know I'll end up making up and saving tremendous amounts of time.

So I love using dictation software to write papers and such for school. I'm in college. I'm finding that I have to proof errors and content extensively though because how I speak is not academic or succinct to writing a paper. In this case is Dragon even worth the time savings until I have to proof and such?

I'm not sure that I really understand your question to be honest, but I use dictation all of the time to write things but when I do I find that I constantly listen to what I've written immediately, in order to make sure that it's going to be correct.

In your case I imagine that if you've already produced the paper then using something like VoiceDream would be great because it allows you to have the entire document to read to you. I have found that by using this I've often picked up errors that I did not realise we're there.

Not sure if that helps but it's what I would be doing.

I have a commute in the morning via public transportation (CTA in Chicago). Does Google Maps or any other map have a feature that when I have earbuds in to remind me to get off at the train stop via bus and get off at the right train stop?

AFAIK Google doesn't. But I'll share a tip: don't use iOS reminders. Despite me setting the locations whilst being there, and trying from the map, it always triggers in the wrong place for me :(

If I am understanding your problem correctly, Overcast is advancing to and playing the next episode. IF the problem that you are having is that it is doing this when you finish listening to an episode:

1) Tap the “Playback" button on the bottom-left corner whenever a podcast episode is selected.

2) There is a setting there titled “When Episode Ends” with two options: “Play Next” or “Stop.”

3) Choose “Stop.”

If that's not the issue you are having, please supply more information.

When getting a new iPhone, do you restore from a iTunes backup, iCloud backup, or start all over?

I'm a little late, but I start from scratch and only put on apps as I need them. That helps reduce clutter on my iPhone.
