I’ve tried a lot of screen protectors at this point. I have discovered that finding a screen protector that protects your iPhone is the easy part. It’s finding one that’s easy to install and doesn’t leave weird bubbles of trapped air between the protector and your phone's surface that can be challenging. Kyasi sent me its 3D Gladiator Glass Screen Protector ($69.95) to test. Here's my hands on experience with the new glass screen.

The iPhone and iPad have been extremely popular for a number of things since they came out but one thing which has been surprising by many is how many great educational uses there is for them. One type of education app which many people might never know about is those which are designed for very young children. The music color app is designed to not only help little kids learn their colors but also get a great appreciation for music. The app is set up with large panels of different colors for little kids to choose and interact with in a simple way.

Among the first apps I reviewed when I started blogging at iPhoneLife way back in 2008 (ages ago, I know) was a dictionary app--Webster's Collegiate (here for the review) from Paragon--and the basic concept then for finding word information was much like the TWIG Touch Dictionary for iPad now. You would start by typing a word into a search box, which would ultimately result in informative word results appearing. The similarities end there however, as to contrast that early app version of Webster's (while effective) with TWIG would be like comparing a Fiat to a Ferrari. The TWIG Touch Dictionary is truly an app worthy of iPad. It's clever use of a mind map-based interface and touch manipulation is stunning, both in terms of innovative design and elegance.

When it comes to making videos, I'm one of those who just can't do it. The editing software seems like it wants me to get frustrated. I rarely take any videos because I know that no one, including me, will want to see it. However, there seems to be a possibility that this might change. Enter Magisto! It seems as though the folks who made it had me in mind. It's an iPhone App that does the video editing for you. How do they do it? Who knows...and who cares? As long as it gets done, I'd be happy. I've been doing some experimenting with it and it seems to work. I'll be uploading a video in the next few days.

Now that iOS 5.0.1 has become hackable, I've been continuously receiving requests to make my previous, strictly iOS4-specific iPhone 3GS / 4 video camera enhancer tool (available in Cydia: see THIS) iOS 5-compliant.
Having successfully closed a major project I've been working on for months, I immediately moved to devoting my free time to updating my tool.

It has long been rumored that the new iPad 3, expected to be announced March 7, will come with a 2048 x 1536 retina display — an amazingly high resolution. Now MacRumors has has obtained one of the displays to be used in the iPad 3 and, based on close analysis, has deemed that in fact it is a retina display. Since they weren't able to power up the display, not having the iPad itself, they resorted to using a microscope to compare the pixel density of the new display with that of the iPad 2. Very resourceful.

The Brownie Hawkeye reminds me of the current iPhone. Why? Here are some comparisons:
1. Both are (or were) ennormously popular.
2. They both are known for portability. Although you couldn't keep a Brownie in your pocket it could be easily carried around...especially if you compare it to the view cameras that it replaced.
3. They are both very simple to use. You took a picture with a Brownie by looking down into the finder and clicking a button.
4. They both became the de facto leader in the field. Apple dominates just as Kodak did.
5. Simplicity defines both cameras.

I can't be surprised anymore at the cleverness of iOS app developers to think of great ways to further enhance the app ecosystem. Several weeks ago I reviewed a free, 3-D app finder called AppCube Explorer, which I thought was pretty darn amazing. eyeconit gives you yet another great free way to find the best apps. See an app icon on your friend's iPhone you are curious about, or maybe browsing one of the best app sites? Merely scan it's icon with your camera, and pow! Info and download links to grab it magically appear... Go check it out at the link above, or check out the video after the break!

This blog post was originally written by one of my developers and I thought I would share it with the iPhone Life community, especially those interested in developing their own apps. For those that are thinking about developing an app, make sure that you create your own developer account for $99 and don't simply use the account of whatever company you choose to develop your app - see below for the main reasons why.

I'm looking forward to Apple's forthcoming announcement, rumored to be March 7. Apple is expected to announce the iPad 3, and now it seems likely that iOS 5.1 will also be announced. Plus, there's a rumor today that a new Apple TV settop device may be coming. And more evidence is pointing to an Apple TV set, though that almost certainly won't be announced for quite some time. BGR is reporting that iOS 5.1 will be released on or around March 9.

Do you own an iPhone 4S and really wish Siri worked for you? I feel your pain. It doesn't make sense that Siri works exclusively for the 4S. It's just not fair. Ok, now that we are over that, what can we do? How about hiring her 1st cousin? Let me introduce you to SpeakToIt ($1.99). Not a very appealing name, I agree so if you ask her what her name is, she says it's Sam, just Sam. I refer to her as a 1st cousin because she uses the same voice recognition that Siri uses, Nuance. Understand though that she is not as talented as her cousin. She can find coffee and gas nearby, give directions, send messages and e-mail and a number of other things Siri does. She is also able to update Facebook and Twitter, which Siri won't do.

In a remarkable switch from the past, Apple has lifted a veil of secrecy and has given technology journalists a preview of the next operating system for the Macintosh even before making it available to developers. The tech news today is buzzing about this new version. And for good reason: it continues to make the Mac more like an iPhone or iPad, and increasingly integrates iCloud. What this tells me is that Apple is committed to simplicity, to making computers easier to use.

The Stone Age game is a fairly straight forward game with a top down view where you control a cave man who is out hunting for meat. On the iPhone the controls are fairly simple with moving is done by tilting the device left or right. Attacking is done by simply tapping the screen where you want to throw a club and defense works by swiping a finger across the screen.

All signs point to a March release of the iPad 3, with an enhanced Retina display and potentially a faster processor and LTE/4G data speeds. Any one of those would probably be enough for me to upgrade from my iPad 2, so in preparation I looked into selling my old iPad. When I upgraded to the iPad 2, I handed down the iPad 1 to my kids. I plan to repeat that pattern, and that frees up the original iPad. Even though it will be several generations old, my 16GB WiFi iPad 1 was worth over $200 at SellYourMac.com. I've written about them in the past, so I thought I'd put my money where my mouth is.
