Editor's Picks for 8/20/2016

Hello again everyone! Sorry for the late submission, but here we are! It’s another installment of Editor’s Picks! Below are some of our favorite daily use apps that we think you should know about.

Timely

timely

Timely is the only alarm clock application I will use. Not once in the many years that I have been using it to wake me up has it ever crashed or in other ways caused me to miss my alarm. The layout is easy to understand, it includes not only the alarm but a useful timer too. One of my favorite features of Timely is the cross device support. I can control what alarm goes off on what device I have Timely on and silence any of them from my phone.
