iLine Mobile Music Cables Review

image

 

Most audiophiles and budding musicians can recall a panic-ridden episode with a missing audio cable, ending in a speed run to the local music store to find a cable or adaptor to connect to their amplifier or mixing board. IK Multimedia's iLine Mobile Music Cables ($59.99) intend to make those situations a thing of the past. iLine is a package of mobile music cables designed to hook your iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, or standard jack audio device into a variety of audio input and output devices. 



How to Feng Shui Your Workspace with Ergotech iPad and Monitor Stands

image

With spring approaching, it’s important to add fresh stimulus to your living space. While this can be as simple as buying a new wall hanging or rearranging the furniture, I decided to improve my home computing space to make it ergonomic, space efficient, and flexible. One way to edge closer to tech Feng Shui is to try Ergotech’s flexible mounting systems. I tried the VersaStand ($79) for iPad and the Freedom Arm ($159) monitor mount with an articulating arm you can attach to the side of your desk. Mounting my various screens moved them up and off my desk, giving me room to work, and the option to pull them close and move them as necessary.



Insanely Great iPad Stands from — You Guessed It — Insanely Great Products

Upon first glance, Insanely Great Products FrameShift stands look more like automotive parts for a Ferrari than a device for propping up iOS devices. I've written about Insanely Great Products before, a California-based company that produces clever, American-made products.



L2Code HTML Review - Learn and Create HTML on your iPad!

image

Like many information technology professionals, I've had to become somewhat proficient in basic Hyper Text Markup Language (HTML) coding. As a blogger, that basic knowledge often pays off, particularly when one of my iPhone Life blog posts doesn't look right. I have gathered several great tools throughout the years that help me write and test HTML, the fundamental code that tells your web browser how to present content. If you’re looking for an iPad/iPhone app that can teach you the basics of HTML, check out L2Code HTML ($2.99). This intuitive tutorial app teaches you the fundamentals and also handily provides a color-coded text editor to make creating your own pages (or even formatting blog posts) as easy as pie!

Originally slated for release Friday in the United States, the highly anticipated Real Racing 3 (free) is making its debut one day early, available today in the App Store. The new version of the hit franchise racing game was first announced Aug. 2, 2012, and Apple used it to demonstrate the iPhone 5’s awesome gaming capabilities at the game’s unveiling back in September.



What I Played This Week - Block Warfare: Zombies!

image

If you’ve been playing Minecraft, and had the thought one day, "Wow, I suddenly wish I had a gun and some ammo and could also run around shooting pixelated Zombies,” thenBlock Warfare: Zombies ($1.99) is definitely your app of the week! You can build blocky worlds to trudge around in, but for the sole purpose of defending them from advancing hoards of, well, block zombies.

Review of JOOL by Rostlaub: An Addictive Infinite Runner!

image

I love infinite runners to the point where I’ll even play a bad one a lot longer than I should in hopes it might suddenly become enjoyable. As such, I get a bit nervous when trying a new one due to the small chance it will live up to my self-inflated standards. In some ways JOOL ($0.99) reminds me of another infinite runner I recently reviewed and wasn’t particularly kind to. However, it just goes to show that while one game might falter because of certain criteria, another can shine in spite of such things. This game might not stroke everyone’s plumage the right way, but if you’re a fan of infinite runners like I am, you should at least give it a try.



Wren V5AP Review — Superior Design, Sound Quality Plus AirPlay Streaming

image

This year's Consumer Electronics Show had its share of wireless audio components, several of which I included in iPhone Life's coverage of the event. I found several new Wi-Fi AirPlay compatible speakers. Of the lot, I finally received a Wren V5AP ($399) review unit last week. Of all the Wi-Fi speakers I’ve had the chance to review in recent years, I must say this one truly gives the Sonos Play line a run for its money.

"To hear a full frequency of a recording, you don't even have to turn it up loud!"

-Kool Kojak, multi-platinum songwriter who produced Ke$ha, Nicki Minaj, Flo Rida, Katy Perry

Recently, I had the opportunity to connect with the team at Munitio, a precision sound brand specializing in lifestyle electronic accessories. Pronounced “Muni-she-yo,” as in the Latin word for fortification and defense, Munitio audio gear embodies strength, authenticity, and style. Before this year's Consumer Electronics Show, I must admit, I wasn't familiar with this small San Diego-based company. Now that I am, I am excited to tell you more about it and share my review of one of its flagship products, the new SV earphones.



iPad Reviews, News, Tips and Tricks

Searching for the best iPad reviews, news or tips and tricks on accessories, apps, gadgets and more is just as important as figuring which apple product you should get in the first place. iPad reviews and news on different products allow you to make a more conscientious decision, but where should you look.  Here at iPhone Life Magazine we work towards answering these very questions.  This page is dedicated to iPad reviews, news, tips and tricks.  This is just one example of a review that we have online (The Green Figure iHolder iPad Stand).

Another great thing about doing research is that sometimes you will find something that you weren't looking for and that can help you.  For example, our page on The Best of 2011 shows our reviews for some of the best products that came out this past year.  This link gives you just a taste of some of the concrete examples of reviews that we do.

Now, the iPad 2 has been around for several months and there have been several companies that have based themselves around the needs of this tablet.  However, it is still a competitive world in the market of accessories.  Anyone could be easily overwhelmed by all the available stands, apps, cases or any of the other niche markets.  We would definitely recommend doing some research and checking out some iPad reviews to get an idea of whats available and how you are going to use your device. The market has several options to choose from today.

Such examples as IK Multimedia, have been on a roll lately, with a slew of hardware and software products tailored for amateur and prosumer musicians. Whether its stands and clips for iPhones and iPads or multitrack recording and sampling software for the iOS platform, IK has been expanding their catalog at a prodigious rate. Their latest releases include a MIDI hardware connector for the iOS platform, a sound sampler app and a iPad version of their popular VocaLive software. These iPad reviews will take a closer look at each.

Whatever you may be searching for, we too are looking for answers and want to help you find them.
