I read two very different sources of inspiration this week... First, Parolisse is a study reference to help one drill down into the Bible. The app includes several translations and supporting material to help you understand practically any Bible topic. Next up is The Rookie: an amazingly cool story of a rookie QB starting his first season in the Galactic Football League. To simply state that The Rookie blends Sci-Fi yarn-spinning and football together (admittedly a weird mix) is akin to stating the Taj Mahal is but yet another ornately decorated building. The story just freakin ROCKS! If you are a hater of either football or science fiction, The Rookie might just convert you to both in one fell swoop...! No exaggeration...
Sanho makes a variety of battery packs under the HyperJuice name that give you extra power for iOS, Apple, and other USB based devices, but I was intrigued by their latest offering. The iUSBport
is a hockey puck sized device that takes any USB hard drive or flash drive and turns it into a wireless storage device!
With the huge popularity of the iPhone in today’s world its safe to say that taking a picture of whatever strikes our fancy has never been easier. With the iPhone or the iPad (especially with the introduction of the ultra-portable iPad mini) in our lives it seems we are never far from a camera these days. Well, whether you are an aspiring iPhone photographer (“iPhoneographer”), just a casual picture-taker, or a skilled camera wizard, have I got great news for you!
App developer MEA Mobile (creators of over 95 Apple App Store apps) is having a huge sale on all of their apps! Now thru Wednesday, all of their apps are FREE. This includes almost a dozen great iPhoneography apps, including the already very successful iSupr8 among others. Don't delay though, as this sale ends tomorrow!
10:01 AM: My iPad mini arrived this morning, Thursday November 15th, finally! Right on time! Actually, I think I got mine a little earlier than some folks, maybe because I was up early that October morning, likely one of the first to place their order online at the Apple Store.
I've been curious as to what it would feel like, seeing the package arrive, unboxing my diminutive new tablet which I already feel I know so much about. I mean, it's not like I don't already have both an iPhone and an iPad 2. Would it still be as big a deal, would this new iDevice WOW me even more than what I'm used to, more than I might expect?
I’ve been a fan of adventure games since before adventure games had graphics, but nowadays the industry seems a bit unclear on what constitutes a member of the genre. The big push these days seems to be towards hidden object games, and while I’m a fan of that particular offshoot as well I still like to indulge in the more puzzle / character oriented fare like the old King’s Quest games. Ironically enough Pilot Brothers doesn’t really fall into that category either, but instead has kind of invented its own style of game play. It’s a two character single screen puzzle adventure, and it’s one of the best games in the overarching genre of adventure games that I’ve played in quite a while.
The built in microphone for the iPad leaves a lot to be desired. It's not for professional audio recording, and unfortunately, most professional microphones are designed for desktop use only. So it was refreshing to learn about the products from MXL Microphones
. They make high quality microphones that connect via USB. so how does that help ipad owners?
You can always count on OtterBox for heavy duty protective cases but also for rapid development of cases following the unveiling of a new Apple device. Sure enough, my iPad mini was just a few days old when I was able to wrap it in a protective Defender case from OtterBox
The iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices are truly amazing pieces of hardware, but many people wonder why it is not possible to easily write yourself notes without using the tiny on-screen keyboard. Fortunately, this problem is now solved by using the Simply Write app which allows users to quickly and easily take notes using either a stylus pen or their finger to jot things down.
In the past there have been apps which allowed this but they required you to learn a complex set of motions to represent different letters, or they made it almost impossible to use. The whole point of simply write is to make the task of writing notes to yourself much quicker and easier, and it certainly accomplishes this very well.
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.
