Every week I seek out updates and cool things to share you, and in the last seven days, I’ve been delighted with little updates that make me go WOW!
Check ’em out…
TripIt Pro Makes Me Money (Again)
I’ve been booking travel this week, and today I got an alert from my TripIt Pro subscription that two of my flights had lower fares now, and I rebooked and saved about $120. Since the service costs me $49 a year, the Pro version just paid for itself two times over (this happens every year. Yay, TripIt Pro!).

Last week I received a summary of a meeting with Otter, my favorite audio transcription tool. I assumed that my very organized client had created a summary for us, but then I got another one. Turns out Otter is sending meeting outlines and summaries automatically now. WOW. So cool and helpful. That’s why Otter has been my app of the year.
Dropbox Has Screencaptures and Recordings
I stumbled on this feature accidentally, but apparently it has been around for a year. Dropbox (another favorite) now integrates screencaptures and recordings into its service. I have used Snagit from TechSmith for many years, but this is handy as well.
OpenAI Has Opened Dall•E 2 to Everyone
I’ve been on the waiting list for one of the hottest text-to-image generators for weeks (months? years? feels like forever). A few days ago they opened the gates to let everyone use the tool.
