Sponsored By Kyasi 3D Gladiator Glass Screen Protector on Mon, 11/23/2015
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.

I was pretty excited about this app at first, but as I continued to explore it, I have reservations about recommending it.
First, the good news: Experimenter contains 14 experiments that are fun, extremely interesting and easy to do. Your older teens could do them on their own. The directions are included as well as videos showing the actual experiments in action. A brief explanation of how the experiments work is also included.

SPB Quads is one of those pattern matching games that will eat up mucho amounts of your time. You can read my review after the break, but SPB has also been nice enough to sponsor 3 FREE codes for our readers, so if you want to try out a new twist on an old theme, comment here on the review for a chance to win. I have played my share of these kinds of games over the years, so was prepared to try and stop the madness at a set amount of time (lot's of reviews are piling up). I still ended up losing 2 hours of my life. It's a simple yet addictive formula. Read on for the review and contest giveaway rules.

I am not a cook by any stretch of the imagination, but a good recipe app is a no-brainer for even me to add to my iPod touch (you never know, I may start). I really enjoy southwest and Mexican cuisine (as my wife is from Mexico, and a good cook), but I can't boil water without ruining it, so if I were to attempt cooking anything in my house, it would best if it were microwaveable. But if you, on the other hand, have culinary skills and have an interest in Jamaican food, you might want to check out Cook Jamaican Recipes.
Cook Jamaican Recipes categorizes and combines the best dishes, drinks and great Jamaican flavors together in an easy to navigate application for your iPhone or touch. Selections from the main screen will provide recipe infomation, pix of finished dishes, and even an encyclopedia of essential ingredients.
The recipes include a full description of the ingrediants and steps to create each dish. Personally I would like to see hot links added between ingredients listed in the recipes, and the table of Essentials where applicable (to save you from switching back and forth). CJR also allows you to e-mail recipes to your friends...
If you enjoy cooking, Cook Jamaican Recipes is a good app to add to your iPhone, but could use a few tweaks. Some of the recipes lacked pictures, and the steps could be a bit more explanatory for a cooking novice like me. There were a few typos, and things that could stand to be cleaned up, but I tested the 1.0 version of the app, and already they have updated to 1.2. The price is currently $1.99, and I think the developers might consider knocking that down to $.99 cents for awhile, until more features are added. A few enhancements I would consider making are added Wiki or web-search links, background and historical information on dish origins, even pix/links of traditional methods of preparing the dishes as well would make it more interesting. Get the flavor of Jamaica, learn about it's history and culture as you prepare your dish, in other words. I will look forward to those features in an upcoming release, but for now, you can still use this app to wow your friends with some authentic Gizzada at your next party, so go check it out...App Store link below.

Most if not all iPhone app developers are looking for the magic bullet to propel their app into a money making machine. With over 152,000 approved apps as of today this is a tall order. Over the last 1 1/2 years I have been spending hours a week watching apps and how apps become top apps in iTunes. I have also taken note of numerous developers that have developed some unique marketing tactics, which have placed their apps into the top 10 in the iTunes App Store. But before any advance iPhone app marketing secrets are implemented there are some app marketing basics that should be considered.

For awhile now I’ve been using a small device which pays big dividends to iPhone 2G and 3G users who need a stable platform either for photography or videography.

Even though you have Voice Memo on your iPhone you might also be interested in the free Pocket Dictate, which lets you make recordings and then tap the send button to e-mail it to your typist from within the app. You can also send it via ftp. The app automatically compresses the WAV file. There are other useful controls, too, including the ability to overwrite and insert. A voice activation feature lets you set it so that it only records when you're speaking. And while it's designed to emulate — and replace — a dictaphone, obviously it could be used for other purposes, such as interviews.

No matter what device I have ever owned, I have always had the hankering to get cases for it. They add extra protection and can be very stylish. When I think about it, I think it’s an addiction I have, because I am always looking for the perfect case. When I think I have found one, something comes along and catches my eye and it begins all over again; How much is it? What are the reviews? and Where can I find it cheaper? When the iPod came along in my life, it got worst, as pretty much every store you go in these days have iPod accessories. These businesses are fueling my addiction. I have been happy with the incase slider I had purchased a couple months ago. Then I spotted the Otterbox Defender series case before Christmas. So when my family asked me what I wanted for Christmas, I said I have the perfect idea. I actually provided them the online shopping link and found a really great price for them. I thought this is awesome, a new case coming my way and it’s saving me some money for a future case that comes out (see it’s an addiction.) On Christmas Eve, I received the case and put my baby in the Otterbox that evening. I still have the case on it. Solid feel constructed of both plastic and a silicone outer shell with a built in screen protector. (The only drawback is that you have to remove the entire case to use it with the Apple Universal Dock, but I can live with that). My wife calls me a geek when I see a case I want, at which point I ask her what purse she is using today. That gets her to stop. Last week, I went to the Otterbox site and purchased my son a version of it for his Nano. I then saw that Otterbox discontinued the iPod touch (and others) and it only focusing on Smartphones going forward. Who knows what the next great case I find will be. So this brings me to a question for all of you. If you use a case on your device (no matter what device), what do you use and why do you like it?

The Associated Press reports that at least twice now, a glitch at AT&T has sent the wrong Web "cookies" to customers' phones, allowing them to access other customers' data on unencrypted sites such as Facebook, and to unintentionally send mail from the other customers' email accounts: http://apnews.myway.com//article/20100116/D9D8O2L00.html
The story predicts that encrypted sites such as banks and e-commerce sites are probably not affected by the glitch, since it's unlikely that the the private key would be sent to the wrong device. As a Web developer myself, this story helps to underscore for me the importance of putting any confidential data on an encrypted site!

Hello, this is my first blog post here and I wanted to introduce myself. You can also find a little more specifics about me in my bio link. I have been a windows mobile user since 2001 with the HP Jornada pocket pc. After that I used the Dell Axim X5 series and the Ipaq 210 as of last year. Frankly, I just got tired of the same old windows mobile experience and I wanted to get rid of that dang stylus. I decided to get the iPod Touch last fall after doing some research on it to make sure it could do what my PDA could do. You see, I bought it for the purpose of the apps. The music and movies were just an excellent bonus for me.

Accessibility enables the visually impaired (or those who can’t find their reading classes or can't focus due to painkillers) to "read" their iphone. (Settings-General-Accessibility). VoiceOver is tricky to use at first, but it will read your iPhone to you – each icon, text, email, etc.
This feature is also helpful to use your iPhone in your pocket - with earbuds in – if pulling the iPhone out is inappropriate.
