Quadlock Mounting System

 

As a recumbent bike rider, I am always on the lookout for a foolproof mounting system for GPS, MP3, and Smartphone devices. Too many times I have hit a bump only to have one or more of my devices go flying, usually to its ultimate demise. Well, I have found a great solution in the form of Quadlock by Annex of Australia. Unfortunately, it only works with iPhones and iPod touch.

The kit comes with four pieces. The main device holder is made of sturdy black plastic into which the iPhone or iPod touch snaps securely. And, when I say securely, I mean securely. It is difficult to pry out the device with a crowbar. So, it's not likely that it will pop out when you hit a bump.



What I Played this Week - Bounty Racer, Kingdom Rush, Stitcher and Pearltrees!

image

What I played this week includes a mix of apps for both work and play, and warn you this will be a lengthy column, as also have a bit of game news to share at the end. So, let's jump in--play before work, as the saying goes: Bounty Racer (beta) is an exquisite crash cart-esque 3D racing menagerie (should be released next week). Second, Kingdom Rush for iPhone is engaging, if tiny, Tower Defense fun with rousing vocals and clashing swords to keep you alert through endless enemy waves. Pearltrees is a "web curation" app (web-content mind mapping/sharing) with an interesting way to find/share online content. Stitcher is to news radio and podcasts what Slacker or Pandora are to music.  Lot's to look at, so let the WIPTW madness commence forthwith!

Rebel Magazine Review - A mag for the good guys!

image

Finding a men's magazine these days that isn't jammed with male enhancement ads, mostly naked people or similar junk is not exactly an easy thing. Rebel is different from other men's magazines--a decidedly encouraging thing. If you are more about doing something positive in the world, rather than sitting on your couch staring at well, junk, then Rebel might be for you. The mag's app is a well-executed mashup of interesting imagery, cleverly presented articles and linked content. For a peek at how a nicely executed magazine could look on your iPad, check out the rest of the review (or grab Rebel here).

Pet App Reviews: Apps Have Gone to the Dogs!

image

 

I think I’ve probably mentioned to you iPhone Life-ers that I have two little dogs. Well, they’re not really my dogs, per se. They’re my wife’s dogs, so by virtue of their proximity (and their sleeping on my bed), they’re also mine.

That's a picture of little Dolce looking swanky in her jacket right there.  Poor Bella is terribly camera shy, so just imagine Dolce with more hair and that's what she looks like.

They amuse me, so I like to help out with taking care of them. Also, there’s tons of cool apps I get to experiment with!

Pet owners are crazy about apps!
