Those of you who follow my articles know that I'm both an outdoor enthusiast as well as a person who likes to bring my mobile devices into the field with me. So I get to test the reliability, durability and ruggedness of many products that claim to be just that; reliable, durable and rugged. I'm always keeping my eyes open for any new accessories that can help keep our iDevices safe in potentially unfavorable circumstances, whether they occur in the urban jungle or in the great outdoors.
I’ve got strong Gaelic roots, meaning that some of my great ancestors were indeed Vikings. So I'd like to think that if and when the Vikings were to swarm from the floor that they would spare me (and my iPhone) their wrath. But you never know with Vikings, they are a wily bunch, and one can never be too safe. So with that in mind, take heart, there is hope and salvation!
The folks at CellHelmet are here, with all new CellHelmet cases for the iPhone 5! With my iPhone safely protected by my CellHelmet, I say bring it on you Vikings! Come what may; be it a Viking ground invasion, a Zombie horde shuffling through the ’hood, or just the day to day hazards of mundane life, the CellHelmet is the one case that will guarantee your iPhone gets quickly replaced if it should break while within the case.
If you're a fan of the hit TV show Scrubs, and hate the fact that you won't be able to find any new episodes, you'll be happy to learn of this great app from HeroCraft Ltd. This is the official Scrubs mobile game which brings you the comedy and fun of your favorite television show. Some people might be concerned about the fact that most of the time when you find a game based on a TV show it isn't very fun and the game makers simply rely on the name recognition of the show to make sales. That is not the case with the Scrubs app.

It’s that time of year… the holiday season is upon us and parents of teens everywhere are scrambling for “cool” gifts for our kids! We all want to be the cool parents, right?
My son and his friends have tested some of the best iPhone accessories on the market this year, and have chosen to deem three of them must-have gifts for this holiday season!

In the past I've covered free apps for streaming video, in my blog posts and in our magazine, and my list of best apps has always included the free SnagFilms app for the iPad. I wanted to alert you that a couple months ago they also came out with a version for the iPhone. The SnagFilms app gives you access to over 300 independent films. There are 17 categories of films, including Festival Flims, Award-Winning, History, Science & Nature, Romance, Fascinating People, Comedy, Drama, Short Films, Health & Food, and more.
I'm always attracted by natural products so have been intrigued when I see ads for wooden covers and cases. One of the makers of a wooden cover, Toast, recently sent me a walnut cover to try with my iPad mini. Toast offers wood covers so light and thin that they seem almost to be a film overlay on the back of your device. It may provide a small amount of protection, mainly from scratching, but the main purpose, I think, is simply elegance and feel. It adheres to your device with a 3M adhesive. You simply peel off the backing paper and apply the cover to the back of your device.

Wars Online – Defend Your Kingdom is a great app from MobeLabb which you can get for free on your mobile device. This is an excellent example of what castle defender games should be, it has everything you're looking for and once you pick it up you'll be hooked for hours on end. From the exciting game play to the complex strategy, this game is truly well made from opening title page through to the end.
