Now here’s a start-up project I think will add convenience to travel in the Philippines. Despite cheap airfares, buses are still the most utilised transport system in the country. Our bus system is still far behind compared to other countries. Passengers still have to visit and line up to bus stations in order to reserve or buy a ticket. PinoyTravel hopes to change that by offering online and mobile booking to some of the major bus companies in the country.

No settings. No formatting. No font choices. Everything stripped down to its bare essentials. That’s how wonderful iA Writer app is for me. In a world where a lot of software developers are packing features and customizations, going back to the basic and simplest way to write is refreshing. It feels like having an old typewriter where you just roll in a paper then start typing in on a blank screen and let the words flow.
