Why I Created SaveTime.blog

by Sean McCabe

“You’re full of these hacks,” James Clear said.

But the tip I just shared with James over iMessage would never be seen by anyone else.

I have so many shortcuts and methods for getting things done faster on Apple devices, but I’d often share them with just one person. I’d constantly wonder, “Did I share that in a tweet or was it a message?”

I needed a place to capture all of my time-saving tricks.

I thought about posting them on one of my other sites…

But the seanwes website is more business focused, and sabbatical.blog wasn’t quite the right place either (though this project was born during my sabbatical year!).

I decided to create SaveTime.Blog.

This blog will not contain comprehensive Apple news coverage. There are plenty of other places for that.

Here you’ll find quick tips you can learn in a few seconds that save you time with your Apple devices.

I’m an Apple nerd like you.

I’m obsessed with making things more efficient.

I will always find the fastest way to get something done.

Whether it’s iPhone, Mac, iPad, or Apple Watch, I’m on a never-ending quest to do more in less time.

Did you know you can:

  • Tell Siri “12 minutes” instead of “Set a timer for 12 minutes?”
  • Move multiple apps on your iOS home screen at the same time?
  • Delete characters in front of your cursor even on iOS and iPadOS?
  • Watch any video at 2X speed on iOS even outside of the YouTube app?
  • Record your microphone while recording your screen to narrate video?

I’ll share posts showing you how to do these things and more. Even if you consider yourself a Power User, I think you’ll be surprised at the number of new tips you pick up.

If you already know some of the tricks I’ll share, well, hey: now you have a place to which to point your friends and family to help them get the most out of their Apple devices.

I’ll either help you save time or make you look good.

There are so many hidden features of iOS, iPadOS, watchOS, macOS, and tvOS that you simply don’t know about unless a friend tells you.

SaveTime.blog is that friend.

There’s a LOT coming…

Preview of new tips coming

I will start publishing new tips around the release of iOS 14 so all of the screenshots are nice and fresh. Stay tuned!
