Keeping track of what you need to do can be difficult when your errands, or you, cross different time zones, but that can easily be managed right in the Calendar app.



Tip of the Day: Integrate Travel Time into Calendar Events

image

It’s easier than ever to stay on top of your appointments with the Calendar widget in Notification Center on iOS 8, but it’s even easier to be late if you don’t know when to leave for your next appointment. Fortunately, you can integrate travel time into your Calendar events in just a few short steps.



Acme Made's Ergo Book Is the Last iPad Case You'll Ever Need (Review)

image

These days, iPad cases are a dime a dozen. You've got folios that double as stands, shells that provide drop protection, and everything in between. It's tough to stand out in a sea of similar faces, but the Ergo Book from Acme Made is a real game changer. I've had a chance to test out this new case, which has currently passed its funding goal on Kickstarter, and I'm more than impressed.

If you somehow managed to miss out on one of the largest App Store sensations this year before it was pulled by its developer, you're in luck. Flappy Bird is set to return to the App Store with some new features that'll make a seemingly overnight success an even bigger deal than it was before.



Satechi's 10-Port USB Hub Will Keep Your Devices Connected (Review)

image

Apple's handheld devices are reaching the point where just about everyone has one, and I mean everyone. If everyone in your home has an iDevice, but only one computer with which to sync and manage devices, then you might need a few extra USB ports. Enter Satechi's 10-port USB hub ($59.95). Overkill? Maybe. Useful? Definitely.

Glass screen protectors for mobile devices are becoming very popular, with a variety of manufacturers offering their own take on the product. I had the chance to try out three, each from different brands, and each brings something different to the table.



Give Your iPad A Makeover With A Protective Skin From iCarbons (Review)

image

The iPad mini with Retina display's portability is definitely one of its biggest selling points. Unfortunately, the more you take it around, the more likely you are to accidentally cause some damage. The wise thing to do would be to get a case; but if you don't want to take away from the iPad mini's natural form, a protective skin from iCarbons ($14.95-$24.95) is a great substitute.

Fuse Chicken, the folks behind the Une Bobine iPhone stand, are at it again with the TogoDock. Having surpassed their $20,000 funding goal on the crowdfunding platform Indiegogo, it looks like the company's latest product will be available to the masses and it's not too late to make a contribution in order to get your own.



Review: Wren Sound Systems V5BT Bluetooth Speaker

image

With Apple's introduction of Lightning connectivity to its mobile devices, accessory manufacturers are still playing catch-up. 30-pin-enabled speaker docks used to crowd the accessory scene, but that isn't the case with Apple's new Lightning connector. Bluetooth seems to be the go-to solution for wireless audio, and the Wren Sound Systems V5BT ($399) steps up to the plate in style.



The iPort Charge Case And Stand Brings Wireless Charging To The iPad

image

If and when Apple ever decides to incorporate a wireless charging solution in future iDevices, it will be a killer feature for sure. But until then, it's up to third-party accessory manufacturers to step up to the plate. One system that I've had the pleasure to use is the iPort Charge Case and Stand for iPad mini with Retina display ($99.95).
