There are some fantastic finds on the Internet, from software and hardware, but also some great ideas, fantastic photos and shared experiences. But not everything is good, there are some things that sometimes look better than the reality, and some that are amazing but in a bad way. Here I share my Good, my Bad, and my downright Ugly finds and personal experiences. I hope you find something that you like or are amused by, or makes you shake your head in amazement that it could exist.

Web Software

I’ve always enjoyed developing websites, despite a lack of artistic skill, and the software that lets you do this has always intrigued me, more so, sadly, than the desire to keep the websites up and running. The challenge is setting them up rather than ongoing updates and maintenance. So I’ve bought plenty of software over the years

Gaming, Playstation 4 and iOS

Gaming has always been a keen interest, and I’ve been playing for over 30 years now on various arcade and computer systems. Amazingly after all that time, I’m still not very good at anything, but I play a lot of games and enjoy getting to the furthest level I can. My patience level tends to mean that once I get stuck, I don’t persevere, I give up and find a new game, so I’ve not actually finished many. But I do have expereince of a wide range of games and know the types I like best and tend to buy them early, and wait for others to drop to bargain levels before testing them out. I really only use my PS4 for gaming now, MAC games haven’t impressed me, but I do play lots of games on my iPad too.

Mac & iOS Software

I’ve been using a Mac at home for around 10 years now. iPads and iPhones for a similar amount of time. I hate to think the amount spent on both, some of what I have bought has been simply brilliant, some ok, but quite a lot hasn’t been good at all. I’m happy to share my positive and negative experiences. I do revisit the bad stuff now and again because usually the concept was what caught my eye, and so there was always a chance it would improve.

These are some of the best, consistently good pieces of software I’ve used over the years. The best of the best if you like, if they are in this list, I use them today, and would highly recommend them because when someone gets it right they deserve all the credit and praise.
