In an earlier article, I wrote about several cases that make it easier to get a good grip on your iPad. This article builds on that one and includes additional cases that let you wear your iPad on your shoulder or neck. A comparison chart is included for your convenience.
If you are in the market for a vehicle mount for your iPad, here is one to consider during your research. Arkon released a Headrest Mount for iPad (model IPM-RSHM). It is designed to attach to your headrest for the people behind you.
The contents come sealed and protected as you can see in the picture. You receive instructions, the iPad Casing, and the actual mount.
Last month I reviewed the iChair case for iPad (Link Below).
Dual recently released a Bluetooth GPS receiver for iOS devices called the XGPS150. I have to admit that it looks kind of neat. I sent their media contacts a request to test drive that puppy, so we will see if I get a response.
If you recall from a post a while back though, I was placed on the list for their original iPod Touch GPS Receiver.
I just noticed that the Particle case has a new look: It's purple!
LOVE THE NEW COLOR! It also comes in blue and black. My favorite feature on this case is the stylus clip for the POGO Sketch. I use a stylus to keep fingerprints off the screen, and the clip keeps it right where I need it! Read more about this case in the iPhone Life Buyer's Guide.
The Speck Candyshell and SeeThru cases are not new, but they are favorites for many. I wanted to see why. This review is kind of a two for one, as I thought these cases were very similar to each other, even though they had their own differences.
The iControlPad is an iPhone accessory of near-mythical proportions - it's been in development for nearly two years. Multiple delays have plagued the product, but at last, iOS gamers can breathe a collective sigh of relief, as the device's creator, @craigix, has announced that orders are finally going to be taken this weekend. For anyone who hasn't heard of the iControlPad, please avert your eyes to the picture attached to this article. After soaking in the beauty of what your retinas have just observed, read on.
Becoming quite the case snob recently... This week I have found 2 great cases for iPod touch (though the iMainGoX shown works also with iPhone, most MP3 or similar devices and not exactly new). The other is the new Trident Aegis series case for iPod (shown below), which I like a lot. Wasn't sure what to think of the iMainGoX with it's bulky, zippered, hardshell design that includes a small stereo speaker set mounted on one side, until I heard the speakers. Cool, would aptly describe it...
You know what I like about this case besides the fact that it looks cool? I like that you can remove the bottom of the case for quick and easy docking without having to remove the whole case. What a genius idea! More manufacturers should do this!
I don't usually review iPod items, but this was too cute to resist! The HEX Watch Band is perfect for iPod nano users on the go. The nano easily pops in and out of the silicone HEX Watch Band, providing protection as well as easy access to all of its controls. Add a headphone cord and you’re ready to go. Listen to music, track your steps, check the time, and more!
SGP offers a stylus called the Kuel H10 Series. This is designed for the capacitive touch screen. The features listed below from their site give a lot of details on this product already, so I’m not going to just repeat them.
When people ask me what to get the person who has everything, I always reply "something to keep it in!" So if you or someone you know is fortunate enough to have an iPad, you're probably looking for a case and/or stand to keep it in. Vendors at MacWorld were happy to oblige. In fact, there were several products that overlapped each other in functionality that I repeatedly experienced déjà vu! Here are four such products designed to let you hold your iPad in one hand and/or display it on a stand. I have included a handy (pun intended) chart that shows the similarities and differences.
If you have not heard of Kioky before, they are a new screen protector company that has created a revolutionary way to install screenguards. Their product not only includes the screenshield itself, but also their own applicator, which promises to make installation misalignment and stress free. You can check out their site at www.kioky.com
Kioky does need your help though.
Just last month, a company called iChair launched a case series they call the iChair. The iChair is a multipurpose slider case which also has some extras. They created one for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. The folks at iChair sent me the iPad case to evaluate. The first thing that came to my mind when I opened the package was an Incase Slider hooked up with a silicone case. But it’s actually much more than that which I will present below.
I found a video they created in their media kit of an unboxing.
Back at the end of November, I reviewed the Powis iCase. You can find that review at the link below. Recently, they launched a new leather design. I am not going to re-review the case, as the design and functionality itself did not change. But I did want to mention two things about it.
The leather design comes in two grades. Powis offers a Premium Leather version for $79.99 and a Lightly Textured one for $59.99. The one in my pictures is Tan Pebble. The leather is tight to the cover and looks nice.
Reading about the Apple Peel accessory is almost like reading about the Abominable Snowman, Loch Ness monster or the Giant Squid. Everybody has read about them, and there are many articles written about them but nobody has actually seen one.
Well now I have.
In fact, I went one step further; I bought and installed one on an Ipod Touch 3G.
This is my first Speck iPad case review. I’m very excited as I will also have a few others in the upcoming weeks to share with you also. The PixelSkin was named based on its design of it’s 5DPI pixel likeness. It’s a silicone case that is pretty thick. I have used silicone cases on my devices in the past and some were made very thin and felt like they could rip if you handled it wrong. Not the case here.
In Part 1 of this review, I provided the unboxing and general case pictures and features. The link for that is here:
This is the fourth keyboard case I have used in the last few months. Two of the folio style cases were from Kensington and Handstands. I think the Kensington Folio is the one that I can really compare the Sena Folio to.
CES 2011 was a showcase for all that's new in the world of consumer electronics. While Apple did not make an appearance, the iOS presence was everywhere. iPhone Life was there blogging and taking video of what we thought was exciting for the iOS user. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video must be worth a million. To that end, we are devoting this issue to the videoblogs that we have uploaded to our YouTube channel, iPhonelifemagazine. Click the links following the entries to view the videoblog.
