iPhone Life Weekly Weekend Giveaways! 11/4


Every weekend we will be raffling off tons of great apps and accessories for FREE. Here's how it works:

Sup! App review



I recently got a request to review the social netwoking app 'SUP!' and I've got to say, it's one of the nicer social calendar apps I've tried.  It's got nice custom graphics and very easy navigation with five clear buttons on the bottom and then the on calendar buttons as well.  The registration for this app was very quick and easy, took less than two minutes to get up and running.  I loved the quick tutorial; it was only about 2 minutes at the most but gave me a good understanding of the app and how to use it without wasting my time describing every tiny detail of the app.  Creating an event was nice and easy with quite a few built in event types along with the custom option.

Rumor: Complete overhaul of iPad and iPhone in 2012


Following a report in Digitimes, blogs repeated the rumor late yesterday that the iPad and iPhone will have a complete overhaul in 2012. The anonymous source: the guys in Asia who supply the parts. You can read a useful discussion on AppleInsider. According to the rumors, there are two iPads in development: one that comes in March that's a modest update, and one later that would be the iPad 3.

Havoc iPhone App Review


Havoc is a simple game with top down graphics.  The concept is very simple; you choose one of three different monsters to play as your character.   Once you choose your character and level you are onto the game play.  For each level you are looking down on the monster who is walking straight down a path (Each level the path is different) and as you walk different items come towards you which you have to throw rocks at.  To throw rocks you just drag your finger from your monster toward the object which you want to hit.  You can pick up more rocks as they come across your path by simply tapping them.  Once you reach the end of the path you’ve completed the level and you get points based on how many targets you hit and accuracy.

Free ebook: iPhone 4S Starter Guide, from Macworld


If you're the lucky owner of an iPhone 4S, or are planning to get one, you'll want to download the free iPhone 4S Starter Guide from the iBookstore. Just released by Macworld, the book covers the basics, including the hardware, the gestures for navigating, and activating your phone, as well as various tips and tricks. It then goes on to cover the major features of the iPhone 4S, including Notification Center, Siri, and iCloud. Even if you don't have an iPhone 4S, but are running iOS 5, this book could be useful to you.

Reports of Native Gmail for iPhone


MG Siegler writes on parislemon.com that a native iOS app for Gmail may be just around the corner. As a die hard Gmail user this is great news to me.

I've been using Gmail from the very beginning when it was invite only. It turned my entire email experience upside down with 1GB storage, threaded conversations, and a rich interface accessible anywhere you had a browser and internet. I can't imagine ever going back to another email provider, either on the desktop or a webmail provider.

Xtand Go Review


Just like iPhone cases, there are a number of mobile device holders designed for cars. Whether these are elaborate gooseneck stands bolted to the car floor or the more prevalent suction cup stands stuck to the car's windshield, all promote the general idea of having your touch screen mobile phone within hand and eye sight. Since this is the primary function of these holders, what differentiates Just Mobile's Xtand Go from the rest of market? Read on to find out.

U.S. Traveller iPhone App Review


As the name describes, U.S. Traveler is made for travelers that call the United States their home and travel to countries outside their own. The application itself is overall very simple. In opening the app, on the “Countries” tab, you are presented with a list of countries & their correlating flags. I thought the added flags next to the country names were a nice touch, especially since most people can quickly find a country based on visual representation versus textual representation. I’ve traveled from the U.S. to numerous countries – Chile, Argentina, Germany & Italy to name a few. I cannot say that I was adequately prepared for the countries I visited, but this app for sure would have helped.

Apple Store app -- buy accessories without help of a clerk


Imagine this: you use the Apple Store app (free) to buy an accessory for your iOS device, walk into in Apple Store, take the product off the shelf, and walk out of the store with it. According to MacRumors, this self-checkout capability may be coming as early as this week. Apparently, as you leave the store you'll simply show the clerk your receipt on your iPhone. However, this only applies to accessories.
