SpiderArm keeps your iPad where you need it and your hands free

image
I have a good friend who is a dentist, and he wanted to put an iPad in front of patients so they could be entertained during longer procedures. So when I saw the SpiderArm, I figured it would be just the ticket. Indeed, with all of the options, and the sleek white design, the SpiderArm looks just like a typical dental tool.



Good looking iZON lets you look in on your house and family members

image
The iZON from stem is a beautiful, functional Wi-Fi enabled security camera / NannyCam. In fact, it looks like it was designed by Apple, which is high praise indeed. It's a small cylinder, reminiscent of Apple's original iSight external camera.


The removable convex base connects to the iZON via magnets, allowing for some flexible angles.


If your iPhone is extremely important, you need extreme protection from G-Form

image

I dropped my iPhone the other day. Needless to say, I didn't like it. It seemed to happen in slow motion. Sure, iCloud would have a backup of most of my data but, as an app developer, even a day or two's loss of use of my iPhone would be difficult, and expensive.



Disney returns to a classic with an app version of The Jungle Book

image
Disney's 1967 film The Jungle Book holds a special place in my heart. It was the very first movie I saw in a theatre, and I'm told that at one point, I stood up and yelled 'Go get him, Baloo!' So I was excited to see the new Disney app based on the classic film, which is in turn based on Rudyard Kipling's stories from 1894. I was not disappointed.



iPhone Remote + iPole = cool self portraits and videos!

image

I've been using (and have written about) the iPole from FastCap, since I first picked it up at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.  The hiking iPole model or the telescoping mini iPole both offer a tripod mount (and optional iPhone case with tripod thread) is a great way to take self portraits and include yourself in videos.  But the one downside is you have to stretch to turn on or off the recording mode.



Customize your iCade for an even better retro gaming experience

image
Our readers try to get the most out of their iOS-based technology, so it's no surprise they have responded to our coverage of the iCade Bluetooth based arcade cabinet. One enterprising reader, Rob Mitchell went so far as to tweak his iCade to accommodate traditional joysticks and a breakout box, suitable for different game apps.



Draw some things with the Draw Thing

image

I've seen a lot of styluses (styli?) over the years, but the latest offering looks like it will be a lot of fun, and for the right purposes, could be quite comfortable.



iHangy evolves and adds earbuds to their already cool iPhone necklace.

image
I've written before about the iHangy iPhone necklace and it's been well received everywhere I've worn mine. But the one thing many folks have asked for are integrated earbuds. Those wishes have been addressed.





MatchBook Pro iPhone case encourages you to play with matches, but it's safe!

image
When I saw the MatchBook Pro (no, that's not a typo for MacBook Pro) I was intrigued. I don't smoke, but I light candles occasionally so the exposed 'matches' that really function as a kickstand are a neat touch.


The case itself is well made, with a felt lining to protect your iPhone 4 or 4S, and a hard shell exterior. The 'matches' have a rubber tip which helps keep the case stationary when the kickstand is in use.


Gumdrop tackles the hard job of rapidly making a rugged case for the new iPad

image
Thanks to Apple's secrecy, when they Introduce a new gadget, case makers have to scramble to make accessories that fit it properly. The new iPad is a perfect example, yet Gumdrop was able to create and ship their ruggedized Gumdrop Drop Tech case rather quickly. In fact,while the case I received fit my new iPad perfectly, though the package it shipped in still said iPad 2, but it had a sticker indicating support for the new iPad.
