$127 for iPhone 5 at WalMart, $149 at Best Buy, Target, Radio Shack

image

In my post last Saturday I noted discounts from AT&T and WalMart for the iPad and iPhone, and I wanted to higlight those prices again. WalMart is offering the amazing deal of an iPhone 5 for $127 with a 2-year contract. The 30-day promotion began last Friday. You can read more on MacRumors. Note, though, that this offer is only available in stores, and apparently only available at WalMart Supercenters. All Things D reports checking a number of stores and finding inventories and pricing of the phones to be quite inconsistent.



Sooner Review - Manage your time with a thumb-swipe!

image

Apps that help organize your life are a dime a dozen, and while many are effective, it's hard to find one that brings together all the right features. Sooner does a good job of unifying time management needs into one handy interface, but you actually have to spend some of your precious time organizing activities, listing goals, and then setting some deadlines and reminders to achieve them. There are likely a hundred different ways (and apps) to achieve time management nirvana, but if you take the time to set it up, Sooner does it with singular aplomb!



Puxxles App Review

image

PuXXles is a new and interesting way to communicate with other people and play a game at the same time.  With this app you can create pictures, jokes, stories, music or just about anything else, and then encrypt it as a puzzle or riddle.  When you send the message the only way they can open it up and see or hear it is to solve the riddle or puzzle.  This adds a little bit of excitement and fun to a regular conversation.

Google Maps arrives: voice turn-by-turn directions, transit directions, vector graphics

image

What a nice Christmas present. As my fellow blogger James Rhodes noted, Google Maps (free) arrived late yesterday and has the best of everything. It includes crucial features missing in Apple's original app based on Google's technology, and it includes features missing in Apple's new Maps app that arrived with iOS 6. Unlike the earlier version, it now has voice-guided turn-by-turn directions and vector graphics. The latter means that the maps are created on-the-fly mathematically instead of using images.



Bring some Joy to your World, with cases from The Joy Factory

image

This is one for the ladies. Or for those of you with a special lady in your life. As long as she has an iPhone!




The Joy Factory makes some great accessories, so I was excited to see why they would come up with for the iPhone 5. Just like with restrooms, the ladies always get the better end of the deal. While men get a step above an outhouse, from what I've heard, ladies rooms have couches, perfume, etc. Ladies get some neat options for cellphone cases as well.
