For reference, I currently use:
If you’re twitching for an Alfred–specific post (my last was in April), I suggest Paul Ciano’s five–part series, Achieve Nerdtopia with Alfred for OS X. Thanks for geeking out, man! ⭐
I can comfortably write in Simplenote, WordPress, or Day One apps on our TV. If I don’t want my laptop on my lap, or my iPhone in my hands, this is another option.
I starting writing instructions, but realized Apple has solid support documents. 🙂
