Hi, I’m David Chartier and I’m obsessed with productivity and polish, so I created Finer Things in Tech in 2009. This is not the place to find news or even analysis. Finer Things in Tech’s writers and readers like to celebrate the surprise features and interface gems that developers slave to add to the hardware, apps, and websites we use every day.

Through useful, bite-sized posts, Finer Things in Tech explores useful details like handy features, intuitive design, and just plain great polish.


The things I write here are my own and do not reflect any policies, intentions, opinions, or diddley squat about my employers or clients. If a post is sponsored, it will be clearly marked as such in the headline.

I use affiliate link systems on this site and its social profiles, such as Performance Horizon, Apple’s choice for iTunes content, and Amazon Affiliates. If I write about and link something you plan to download, please use my links as a way to help me support Finer Things in Tech.
