Great podcast for novice Apple lovers to Apple power users!

This is hands down my favorite podcast! The structure of the show is great. They tend to start with a more basic information about the topic and then build into more advanced content through the showe. This has been a great way for me to learn more and more about the Apple products I love. The content is relevant and presented in a very approachable way so you can see how to get the most from your Apple products in your everyday personal and professional life. Whether you love Apple products, want to learn about great tool to help you be more productive or just want to learn how other people approach their work this is a great podcast for you to subscribe to.

Increased my own productivity ,

Late Bloomer

I’m a late-bloomer in regards to using Mac / Apple products. I bought the original iPhone in 2007 and upgraded once to the 3G then made the switch back to Android. After several issues with these devices, I made a full switch to Apple by upgrading my phone, tablet and pc. This podcast has been incredibly helpful with not only setting up these devices, but keeping my devices safe, up to date and driving my own productivity through app recommendations.
