Take Steady iPhone Videos with Tiffen's Steadicam Smoothee


The great video quality of an iPhone 5 allows you to forego a traditional video camera, but the obvious downside is how hard it is to hold an iPhone steady. That problem is gone thanks to Tiffen's Steadicam Smoothee ($126.60 on Amazon), which now supports the iPhone 5.

4 Must-Have Custom iPhone Cases To Add To Your Collection


I'll be the first to admit I have a few too many iPhone cases. I love change them out often, and you'll never see with me with a plain black case on my iPhone. I'm excited to share with you some of the cases I love most right now!

New iPhones and iPad Mini Coming, But May Be Delayed


It's hard to beat the prescience of market analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who accurately predicted Apple's forthcoming iDevices and Macs last year. Now, according to AppleInsider, he's saying we will indeed be seeing an iPhone 5S with a fingerprint sensor, a low-cost iPhone with a plastic case, and an iPad mini with a higher-resolution screen. That's the good news. The bad news is that each of these technologies are causing the devices to be delayed.

CamFind- Free New iOS App for Visual Web Surfing


An emerging class of visual search apps are showing promise in replacing traditional search methods — with camera technology that leverages the power of the web to help you identify and learn about your surroundings. The just-released iOS visual search app, CamFind (currently free) nicely marries image analysis features with language translation and voice input/output and is threatening to relegate the practice of text-entry search to the Stone Age where it belongs!

Trigger Fist vs. Critical Mission: SWAT — Who Will Survive this Virtual Shooter Showdown?


Critical Missions: SWAT ($2.99) from Critical Force Entertainment is a killer of a combat first-person shooter, especially if your thing is stalking through virtual settings (armed to the teeth) in order to blast in-game bots (or your online buddy's bots). The game physics are quite realistic, and the 3D scenes and graphics excellent. I did not go bananas over the control aspects, but after a few test runs started getting a better hang of it. Several modes of play are available: endless singular stalking/blasting or various team matches. Critical Missions: SWAT is a single bloody-minded combat game best enjoyed with a side of Foo Fighters at extremely high volume! 

But can it stand up to the most excellent Trigger Fist (Free) (reviewed previously here)? Inquiring shooters want to know... Here's how the two shake out in a side-by-side comparison!
