This site was created by Jeff Maynard to review the best-in-class of a variety of apps for Apple devices (Mac, iPad, iPhone, iPod, TV, Watch).
In each category I have reviewed a number of apps (anything from two to ten) and selected the one I think is best - this is the one reviewed.
My process is simple (but comprehensive): use each app for weeks in 'normal' working and doing every day stuff. In this way I can better understand the nuances of use and don't rely on the PR stuff from the app developer.I do not review apps I am not planning to keep...xxx
This Apple app review site does not really need a Help section. From the Home page choose the category of app you are interested in (Mac, iPadOS, and iOS - iPadOS and iOS only - Mac only - Apple Watch only) and read the details of the app in which you are interested.
You can click on the link following to see screenshots or click on the brief description to see more details.
See the About tab for details of how the apps are chosen and reviewed.
