Latest ipad reviews blogs
In my CES 2013 recap, I reviewed the previous generation of Fuse Chicken's Une Bobine flexible cable/stand, when it supported Apple's 30-pin devices. Now they have a Kickstarter project for their Lightning-based version. I don't always post about Kickstarter projects; but since they have a nice existing product, and they were able to send me a review sample, I'm confident this isn't vaporware like other Kickstarter projects.
I was disappointed that the new iPhone 5s didn't include NFC (Near Field Communication) for several reasons. First, it would be nice to have a feature that a number of a Android devices do, and second because it would be nice to pay for things with a swipe of my phone. But also I could try out the new Mo' Beats HD speaker from iLuv ($99.99).
If you're like me, you carry your iPhone everywhere. And sometimes you just need to carry a few credit cards and some form of identification. Instead of a dedicated wallet, you could get a case with a built in slot for cards. I've tried a few such cases. But they're typically too bulky too make it worthwhile.
In-ear headphones are not my favorite, but the SteelSeries Flux In-Ear Pro Headset ($49.99/$129.99) has a tangle resistant, top-of-ear design that works better than most others I have tried. Once you get these lightweight earphones situated comfortably, they will fill your head with an immersive, full-bodied sound that many in-ear headphones just can't muster. However, the trick really is getting them to seat in your ear properly. Good thing plenty of tip options are provided in the kit.
This article is targeted at people wanting to play back video files with DTS audio in them and to know how CineXPlayer fares against the competition.
I've frequently posted on the generic video player CineXPlayer for iPhone ($1.99) and iPad ($3.99). While I haven't really recommended it as an all-in-one player, unlike nPlayer ($4.99) which I recently reviewed, I still did emphasize its main strengths. They're as follows:
Having previously reviewed Phiaton's high-end wired Bridge MS 500 Headphones, I was looking forward to giving their top of the line Chord MS 530 series a try. If you own a top-of-the-line iPhone or iPad and know the quality and features it delivers, you will appreciate the high-end sophistication Phiaton has packed into their premiere wireless Bluetooth, noise-canceling headphones. But are they the ultimate headphones that you have been looking for? These are my conclusions after using the headphones nearly non-stop for the past few days.
There’s no shortage of quality Bluetooth speakers on the market. The field gets narrower as one looks for high quality rugged Bluetooth speakers, and narrower still if one is on the hint for a rugged and highly portable Bluetooth speaker for adventuring with.
Recently I had the opportunity to try out the awesome new Buckshot ($49.95), a rugged mini Bluetooth speaker from one of my favorite manufacturers of go-anywhere gear, Outdoor Technology.
I like apps that are open ended enough to adapt to the user's personality. Proposition is one such app. If you are a professional, by the book, no nonsense kind of person then Proposition could reflect that. If you are a prankster, happy go-lucky adventurous risk-taking type, then you will find Proposition will match that. It's almost a psychological test of your personality. Basically, Proposition is like Truth or Dare, with emphasis on the Dare part, and leveraging social networking and mobile technology.
Boost 4200 by Eton ($54.99) is a pocket-sized backup battery pack for your iPhone or iPad.
It measures, 5 inches by 2.5 inches and its slim design allows the Boost to easily fit into a pocket or purse while you're charging your device or just by itself for some power peace of mind.
What I like about the Boost is it's ability to let you know how much juice is left in it. When you pick up the Boost and shake it, it has an LED charge indicator to monitor the battery charge level. That way, you know when you plug your phone in it's going to get charged.
I guess after you play or review a few high-caliber 3D action games—particularly ones with fast, stunning graphics and sound—you sort of become numb to similarly fantastic, over-the-top games. You overdose on them, or at least I do. You need to cleanse the palette, as it were. Eventually along will come a simple game, completely out of nowhere. No fancy 3D engine, shaders, or blazing polygon models. Just clever use of lighting, and in-game ambience that is so darn good, it is like discovering the wonder of your iPad for the first time. Type:Rider ($2.99) is exactly that kind of game.

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.

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.
