A redesigned Tweetbot for Yosemite gets a blurry teaser

Tweetbot, one of our favorite Twitter apps, looks like it's finally getting the redesign we've been clamoring for for, well, years. The Mac app has seen several updates since release, and even a surprise disappearance and return to the App Store, but has carried something of a legacy styling into this modern OS X Yosemite era. That all is poised to change at some point later this year, if this blurry teaser from Tapbots developer Mark Jardine is any indication.

Yammer now supports Handoff between iOS 8 and Yosemite, as this epic video will tell you

Microsoft's messaging app Yammer now supports Apple's Handoff feature on OS X Yosemite and iOS 8. Unlike some implementations of Handoff, which see you switching between corresponding apps on iPhone and Mac, Yammer's sends you from the iOS app to your Handoff-supporting browser and back again. Sure, it's not a terribly exciting implementation of the feature, but the video was just insane enough that we had to bring it to you.

Get travel time for frequent destinations on your iPhone

I don't drive around Boston a whole lot — the perks of working from home and living in a fairly walkable city — but when I do, it's often to specific locations: my roller derby league's practice space, "Fort Independence," for example, or my boyfriend's house. Apple provides an easy way to add bookmarks for frequent destinations, but the Maps app isn't so great at being able to see quick traffic estimations on the go. Asking Siri "How long will it take me to get to X?" will get you directions from the Maps app, but there's no quick way to preview travel time or routes.

Enter ETA: the $1 app and accompanying Notification Center widget not only stores your frequent locations, but gets accurate walking or driving time estimates for you from your favorite map app, too.

Outlook for iPhone or iPad could be the mail app we've been waiting for!

Outlook is Microsoft's relaunch of Acompli, the iPhone and iPad email app they acquired last December. It's been rebranded but it still supports not only Microsoft Exchange and Outlook mail accounts, but Google, iCloud, and Yahoo as well. For file storage, you can instantly hook into Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox, and Box. There are focus lists and scheduling options to help you get through your inbox faster, and your calendar is only ever a tap away.

Not only does Outlook support all these services and perform all these tasks, it does so exceptionally well. So well in fact, it may be the mail app you've been waiting for.

Outline for Mac offers OneNote alternative for note-taking

Gorillized's Outline was developed to be a OneNote alternative before OneNote hit the Macintosh last year. It was originally designed as a mere reader of OneNote files on iPad, but turned into a full-blown editor and has since added Mac support too. That makes it an interesting alternative to both OneNote for people who don't want to part of Microsoft's ecosystem, and to Evernote for people who want something different.
