Winter is finally making itself felt. When the chill winds blow it can pose a challenge to work with our touch sensitive device screens. Here’s a collection of useful and convenient alternatives for utilizing our iDevices at this time of year, when it can be too cold to have our hands and fingers exposed...
Magic Orbz is a game which was very popular on the Play Station 3 platform and has now been ported over to mobile devices. To play the game you have to throw and bounce balls through the different levels to break all the blocks before you run out of lives. The game seems simple at first, but as the levels get progressively more difficult you’ll find that it can become quite challenging.
The iPhone and iPad do a lot of things well, but if you agree that the built-in microphone could use some improvement, you should check out the Mikey Digital add-on from Blue Microphones.
Blue is known for the very high quality microphones for Mac and other uses, so it's nice to see them bring their expertise to the iOS world.
Slenderman: Unknown Chronicles is one of a few games or apps on iTunes related to the Slender horror genre. The legend is of a tall, slender man that appears in the background of old photographs that include small children. Evidence of kidnappings surround these events, and the Slenderman is purportedly able to stretch his arms and torso to extreme lengths to capture his quarry. The game is sort of like an iOS version of Blair Witch Project (if anyone remembers that)! Ice Riders, a decidedly upbeat, platform-like snowboard simulation combines custom course design with tricky game physics to create a unique, chilly and fun time-killer...

There’s a reasonably credibly founded stigma regarding crossovers between video games and other media: it doesn’t work well. When it comes to basing video games off of other media, you tend to lose the story in favor of events that simply take place in the same universe. Go the other route and you find that many comics based off of video games pretty much have to come up with their own stories because the source material doesn’t have any. Either way you tend to have a match that doesn’t feel made in heaven. Ape Entertainment is trying to do their part to stay on the winning side of the curve with two offerings based off of currently popular mobile games: the Squids franchise of action / RPG games and Temple Run, the game that did for infinite runners what Angry Birds did for physics action games. In terms of content they’ve mostly succeeded, though I’m still not quite sure how I feel about the interface.
Yatzius Rex is a fun “Yahtzee” simulator that actually takes the classic dice game a step further. To start with you can play in the classic Yahtzee mode which allows each player to take one turn which is up to three rolls of the dice. There are five dice in all and you're looking to get a wide range of different results in order to fill out your entire score card. You can build up points by getting the maximum possible score for each section.
Everyone knows that the name Hercules is associated with great strength and integrity. Now, with their new backpack of the same name, EC-BC has done a most excellent job of creating a high-quailty backpack that embodies those same qualities of strength and integrity.
The Hercules is a stylish bag that looks nothing like a military issue pack, nor even a particularly rugged bag. But don't let its fashionably attractive appearance decieve you! The Hercules is every bit as tough and durable as many "military standard" backpacks! In fact, with its superior craftsmanship and intense attention to detail, the Hercules is actually more rugged than many military issue bags that I have evaluated over the years! Now that's saying something...
I have been a big Sonos fan for years. If you are not familiar with the high-quality line of wireless music systems, please do yourself a favor this holiday season and either search our site (keyword "Sonos"), check my latest Play:3 review here, or simply go to their home page here. It is the single best wireless music system I have reviewed. Anyway, the point is to inform that a recent update to the iOS application experience now includes streaming from your iPad, iPod touch or iPhone. You needed a dock accessory in previous versions to do this, so it is indeed a very cool enhancement... Read on for full details.
There was a time when “playing bat and ball” meant your kids were probably out getting a bit of exercise. Nowadays it could simply indicate that they are sampling the latest variant of the classic Arkanoid. Mechanics wise there’s no question that Magic Orbz pays homage to such games of old, but the environments and some of the power ups really give it a fresh feel. Don’t get too laid back while you’re playing, though, or the challenge of the last level set will really smack you in the face.
If you follow my articles and read my posts, then you already know that I am an outdoor enthusiast, who also dabbles in extreme sports and loves to adventure and spend time in nature. I'm always on the lookout for the latest and greatest in the world of rugged, iOS friendly accessories. Well, do I ever have something to introduce to all of you! In fact, I first got wind of this excellent new accessory a while ago and I've been chomping at the bit to share the news of it with everyone!

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.

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.
