Otterbox Defender Series iPad Case
This is the most rugged case on the market today. When I first saw the case I thought this would be a geat case for the outdoors or children. Why? It provides more protection than any case I have seen so far. The Defender Series is my favorite of all the cases Otterbox makes. I currently have one for my iPhone 4 too and wouldn't think of using any other case.

The CandyShell cases by Speck are one of my all time favorite cases made. I have tested them out for my iPad and own them for the iPod Touch and Galaxy Tab 7. But the only reason it has not been my day to day case for the iPad is the lack of front screen protection. That is why I always turn back to my folio type cases. I just tested out the perfect match with the CandyShell Wrap for iPad. I’m reviewing it with the original iPad but it’s also available for the iPad 2.

Last week, Vonage released a competitive app aimed at Skype’s voice-over-IP calling service. This app offers some benefits over its competitor. Time to Call, which is the name of the new app, is available for free in 87 iTunes stores around the world. For between $1 and $2, app users will have the ability to call people in 100 different countries at 15 minutes per call.

The gold standard for a Bluetooth keyboard for an iPad is probably Apple's wireless keyboard. But gold can be heavy and expensive, and the Apple keyboard is pricey at $69. A competing keyboard needs to be smaller or lighter, or cheaper or have more features like specialized keys. With that in mind, I tried out some alternative Bluetooth keyboards.
Appealing to females who want to keep track of their menstrual cycles, Period Pace [FREE] is most definitely a top-contender. Why? Its easy-to-use interface and features that give you the best estimates make it an ideal application, especially considering it's absolutely free to download.
Coming from iPhone developer Aesop, who specializes in the making of applications appealing mostly to just-married couples, and helping with care of a newborn child, Period Pace certainly is the solution to tracking your periods.

So what happens when a weird blue alien decides she needs a string of pearls but has no money? Why she kicks her kids around the world, that’s what! In this rather interesting take on the whole Pachinko genre, Kickin Momma has you catapulting your poor children around a variety of environments in order to collect gems that you can turn in for your desired jewelry. Why not just wear the gems? Who knows? In any case, with excellent games like Peggle and Dog Pile on the iOS market, you really have to work hard in this genre to stand out. There’s no question that Kickin Momma separates itself from the pack, but I just wonder if it’s a bit too over the top.
ChickenBalls Game Review
I have to say I'm not much of what you would consider a hard core gamer. I do enjoy the occasional game of cards or AngyBirds. Since purchasing my ipad 2 I have been downloading and playing more games. I just find some of them very entertaining and challenging. Well with that said I have found a game I love. Its called ChickenBalls.
