Aquabox and Lifeproof Case Reviews for Your iPhone—Just in Time for Running Through Sprinklers

image

Remember a few weeks ago I did a post about great apps for vacation?

Well, I went.

I went on a vacation, and you know what I brought with me? My iPhone. I never, ever put it down. My hand is now permanently stuck in phone holding position. It’s completely true. My wife replaced my phone with a box of Altoids once when I was sleeping. I woke up and, still groggy, I tried to check my email before I realized what was going on.

It was…embarrassing.

But, ultimately, hilarious.



True Confessions of a Draw Something Addict

I’m really proud of myself, iPhone Life-ers.

I’m just getting over an addiction to…

Draw Something.

What is it about that game that’s so incredibly fun?



Apps For Collaboration and Organization

It’s time for some Spring organizing, iPhone Life-ers!

I don’t know about you, but my life gets cluttered up pretty quickly. We all wear many different hats during the day and it’s easy to drown in it all—forgetting to do things or missing a team meeting. So, today we’re going to talk about some apps that help facilitate organization and collaboration.



Travel Apps for iPad: Never Have a Crummy Vacation Again

How are you guys loving your new iPads?

Right?

The improvements are just incredible. I’ve been cradling mine in my arms like a proud papa since the day I picked it up, and I’m pretty stoked to use it to help me with my travel plans this summer. I found some really cool iPad apps over at Market Watch, and I picked out a few of my favorites to test out for you guys.



Stop Motion Apps: More Fun Than I Should Be Allowed to Have

When I saw this article over at Mashable, I said to myself “I must try these immediately!”  Especially after talking about how much I use my iPhone camera in my last post! How could I not share my filmographic adventures with you, iPhone Life-ers?

So today, I have a very special treat because I have made incredibly entertaining (well, at least moderately entertaining) stop motion videos using three free apps. I had lots of fun testing these out and I’m excited to share the results with you.

I’m considering a career in animation now, just saying.



Your iPhone Camera: Helping You Find Your Car and Other Cool Stuff

image

How often do you use your iPhone’s camera feature?

Do you save it for just taking pictures of your friends and family and maybe the occasional jackwagon parking job (and then running it through FAIL Maker to make it that much funnier), or do you use it for nontraditional purposes?

I’ve found ways to use my phone’s camera that help make life a little bit easier.

For example, have you ever thought to use your phone to take a picture of the lot number you’re parked in so you don’t lose your car every time you go to the mall?



What Your iPhone Case Says About You

image

Have you looked for an iPhone case lately, iPhone Life-ers? The choices are overwhelming. Just think of the poor new iPhone owner realizing that their new toy is gonna get scratched if they don’t get something to protect it, and they go online to find a case for it and find eight million mind-boggling choices.

You were there once. You know what I’m talking about.

Just like me, you probably sat there scratching your head wondering what the perfect case would be. What would make you happy and proud to hold in your hand? What’s good enough to protect your precious piece of technology?



My iPhone as a Remote: Controlling the Universe One Device at a Time

image

I’ve been using my iPhone as a remote control for years now. I can set up my DVR from work if I’m going to miss my favorite TV shows, I can turn on the lights in my house (my wife loves when I decide to mess with her), I can start, lock and unlock my car and I can change the song coming through my jukebox from anywhere in the house. But, there are two new things that you can control remotely with an iPhone that I think are pretty interesting.

There are also some things that I wishI could control with my iPhone that they haven’t thought of yet.



FaceTime Best Practices: How To Avoid Looking Like A Jackwagon

image

Every once in a while I find FaceTime, Apple’s most excellent video call feature, to be very helpful. There are occasions when I just can’t get in the same room with a client, and FaceTime is a great alternative to just a phone call.

As a form of videoconferencing, it saves lots of time and money by eliminating travel and all the expenses associated with that. Normally I use my iPad because the screen is bigger and it’s easy to keep stationary, but sometimes I have to use my iPhone. FaceTime is a bit challenging in general, but particularly so on the iPhone—not because of the technology, but because of the potential for mishaps.



Fitness Apps: Because I Just HAD To Eat That Last Piece of Fruit Cake…

image

Well.

How about the Holiday Feeding Frenzy, huh?

I’ve managed to pack away enough holiday food to keep me at the gym for months, just sweating little droplets of fruitcake and chocolate truffles. I think I speak for most of us when I say it’s time to Stop The Insanity!

And what better way to do that than with some apps that will help you stay fit and active despite the holiday season’s offerings. And if you’re not ready to jump on the wagon yet, you will be. New Years is on its way and just about everybody has either “start flossing” or “get more exercise” at the top of their list of resolutions.

Many a gym membership has been purchased in January, iPhone Life-ers.

And you know what else?  Lots of apps too!
