Pick of the week - our recommendations in 2024

Behind the Pick of the week hides a recommendation from the Sir Apfelot editorial team, made by Lynne, Johannes or Jens. We thought about this section because we always stumble across products, software or other things that are absolutely recommendable, but so far we haven't had the time to write a long review. Sometimes it can also be picks that don't really have anything to do with Apple and Co., but should still be mentioned because they have proven themselves in everyday life.

We already have the pick of the week 2021, 2022 and 2023 (Link to the archives) – more or less regularly – described. If you would like to take a look at the old picks, click on the year numbers.

The picks of the week are special recommendations from the Sir Apfelot team - new every week.

Unsellable “Recommended Label”

No company can buy the pick of the week. We only recommend apps, accessories and devices that we really own and have tried out ourselves. You are welcome to give us tips on devices, accessories, apps or the like, which from your point of view are worth a "pick". We like to take a look and - with a lot of luck - they will be featured here.

Of course, I would like to run my blog completely without advertising and affiliate links. So it would be obvious that the opinion in the articles is not influenced by money.

Unfortunately, I cannot do without the advertising income, because the expenses for hosting and external help are not insignificant monthly and in the end we all somehow have to make a living. But I want to assure you that neither Johannes, Lynne nor I would ever recommend a product just because we could earn some money with it. If something is nonsense or deserves criticism, this is what it is said here.

My blogger honor and your trust in the recommendations you will find at Sir Apfelot are too important to risk both here because of financial interests.

I hope that these lines show you that one can certainly have confidence in the “picks” from us - even if we earn something with one or the other.
