2. I recently discovered a cool tip that simplifies cursor movement on an iPhone: the space bar trick. I wish I knew this before!

3. For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been using the Gutenberg editor. It works fine and it’s quite intuitive. If you are curious how it works, you take a peek a these free Gutenberg tutorials.

4. Rocket is a free emoticon finder on your Mac. Download it and give it a try.

5. Buffer released an app to help you create Instagram stories. It’s free to use.

6. In this article, I learned a way to create Google Draw template. For instance, my featured images are always 750×375 pixels. In Google drawings, I always had to start a new drawing canvas, change the settings from inches to pixels and, specify my pixel measurements. Not anymore! That tip saves me time.
