Stick your iPhone anywhere... The secret is magnets and BodyDock #MacWorld

image

If you want to put your iPhone anywhere, and I do mean anywhere, check out the Cellphone Armor BodyDock System from BodyDocks. They use an extensive system of magnets (hence the name, ) that includes a rugged case, assorted magnets, security tethers, and more.




These components work together to allow you to stick your iPhone on your clothing, refrigerator, purse, lanyard, automobile dashboard and really just about anywhere you can think of.



Powis iCase for iPad has all the angles covered, #MacWorld

image
It's hard to differentiate yourself if you are a case maker for iPads or iPhones, so it was nice to see the Powis iCase at MacWorld. They have found several ways to set themselves apart, and create a nice case in the process.



Grab a Grablet for your Tablet, and it's Made in the USA

image

Since CES, I've had a chance to play with the Grablet which is a soft rubber shell for the iPad with special hooks for the included fabric latches.  The latches can be configured in a wide variety of ways to allow the user to grip, hold and display an iPad 2 as desired.  It's similar to the OtterBox Latch but less bulky and it's a custom fit for the iPad (with versions for the both the original and the iPad 2) unlike the OtterBox which is more of a general purpose holder for any 10" tablet.



Dual simcard capability for iPhone 4: Unique battery case with extra simcard slot

image

 

Many business travelers often need to be contactable on two mobile numbers: one local number for their business clients and another personal number for family and friends. Until now, this means having two mobile phones and the inconvenience of having to make sure that contacts are transferred from one phone to another, or having to forward messages from one phone to another.



Facebook Cover Designer Review

image

The facebook cover designer app makes creating great looking profile pictures or timeline covers quick and easy, right from your iPhone.  Since the new timeline profile feature came out on facebook there have been a few different places on the net which allow you to create some custom timelines, but there was never anything that could work right on your phone.  This was a big problem for many people since the majority of pictures taken and used on facebook today are shot right from phones or other camera enabled smart phones. 



Review: The Passenger by Loading Home

image

I love adventure games, as it was probably the first genre I got hooked on when I started playing computer games.  As the genre goes it’s always nice to see an original IP pop up in the App Store, so I was pretty excited when I ran across The Passenger.  After playing and finishing it, however, I’m not quite sure how I feel about it.  There are certainly some nice points to the game, but ultimately it felt too basic and more disappointedly, way too short.  I’d still be more than happy to see a sequel, but the game will need a lot more meat to produce I viable franchise.

MediaSafe App Review

image

If you've been looking for an app that will allow you to keep your media hidden from spying eyes; then MediaSafe is the app for you.  It serves as your personal safe where you can hold photos, videos, contacts, and notes that are blocked behind a finger slide code.  It is your personal combination that will eventually allow access, but will lock up if someone else tries and continuously gets it wrong.



Review: Ninja Ponk by Alien Worm

image

Ninja Ponk, formerly Ninja Pong (which, if you ask me, was a better name), is a quirky game that has you bouncing ninjas across gaps in various landscapes with the help of a breakout-style paddle.  As with many of the games I’ve enjoyed lately, the mechanics are dead simple, but to do well in the game requires a lot of focus and some pretty good coordination.  This game will probably serve more as something to fill time than as something you spend hours at a time on, but oh, what great filler it is!
