How does AirDrop's Contacts Only setting work?

AirDrop is one of iOS 7's new features. The Contacts Only option is particularly interesting, but it is lacking in documentation which can make it challenging to get it to work properly. All of the documentation I have seen so far talks about how you have to add the contact to your address book, and that's about as much detail it goes in to. That statement is very vague considering all the different features on iOS devices, so I thought I would clear up some of the confusion.

Evernote Character Sort Order Finder

As I was updating my old post, Evernote Tag Sort Order, I realized that there are many variations between the clients and figuring out the best set of symbols to use is not an easy task. Therefore, I decided to create a tool which will help you choose which symbols you should use for sorting purposes (e.g. to make it easier to access them). Simply check all the clients and lists you care about, and it will output several recommendations for you. See the end of this post for more details.

Viewing Chrome cache (the easy way)

Chrome is a great browser, however it could use improvement is in its cache viewer. While the cache viewer can be used to recover a file, it's unnecessarily complex. I decided to create a solution which makes it easy to recover a file in the cache. I got the idea from reading a post about how to do the same thing in PHP. The problem was that I didn't have PHP set up, and, besides, a lot of people don't know how to use PHP. I wanted to create a solution that would be as easy as possible for anyone to use; a solution which wouldn't require you to download, install, or setup anything.
