One of my favorite electronics companies, and one that has for decades blazed the trail in hi-fidelity audiophile technology, is also one of the first companies to come to market with Apple's Lightning connector enabled docking speakers. Compatible with Apples’ latest Lightning enabled devices, this new line of docking speakers delivers a superior sound reproduction and includes a powerful music system capable of filling a large room with crystal clear audio, as well as two different mid-size docking speakers and a smaller, bedroom docking speaker that has a convenient clock display.



Review: Little Labyrinths by ByteSize Games

image

Sometimes a simple maze game where the main goal is just to get out of each level can actually be entertaining, as long as the game is constructed well.  My big concern with Little Labyrinths was that it was going to be too easy since you basically trace your way out of each maze with your finger.  It turns out that with the right game play mode this is not only challenging but can get quite addicting.  Thankfully Little Labyrinths has 6 game play modes to choose from, and in the right combination these can be rather rewarding.  Just make sure that you have a “big kid’s” game to quickly switch to when someone wants to know what you’re doing.

Looking for virtual wintertime fun this holiday, check out Ice Riders or Snow Fight (reviewed last winter season on my blog here), both from Sauce Digital. Ice Riders is a simple way to practice snowboarding tricks without breaking major bones, and as a bonus, you design the course! Snow Fight is soon to get an update, so you might wait a bit before grabbing that one. Both are great time killers for the days when you wish you could be out there on the slopes, instead of, well, stuck inside playing games!!.... Read on for the full PR!



Boulder Dash XL App Review

image

Boulder Dash is an interesting game which is simple in concept, but difficult to master.  The idea of the game is not new in that you’re controlling a character in a 2D world where you have to find gems by walking through an underground area.  You can dig through sand to explore new areas, push round rocks to crush enemies or allow you to get to the other side of them.  There are other tops of rocks which you can’t dig through so you’ll have to explore your way around them. 



What I Played this Week - GPP, Atomic Frogs and Dead Trigger!

image

This week I played 3 awesomely cool games at the $1.99 level and below...Galactic Phantasy Prelude is a space shooter RPG in the same class of game as Galaxy on Fire 2 (SD version recently went free and hit #1 in nine countries). Atomic Frogs, a physics puzzler that requires deft timing and aim to launch your frogs through the various obstacles. Last is a free to play shooter called Dead Trigger, which brings the joy of shredding Zombies to iPad in exquisitely detailed apocalyptic strokes. So, without further adieu, let the WIPTW game review madness commence!....

Review: Earn To Die HD by Not Doppler

image

Around the time that Earn To Die came out it seemed like several such games came onto the App Store.  I tried some of the other ones as well, and for some reason this one seemed to catch my attention the most. The concept as a whole is fairly redundant: race until you run out of gas, upgrade your vehicle and repeat.  Still, Earn To Die has managed to suck me in every time I load it up, and as far as I'm concerned that's the most important feature a game should have.



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.
