Top 2 iPad Cases with Organic & Natural Feel

image

I love nothing more than iDevice products constructed of natural and organic materials. The feel and durability of accessories made from natural materials is comforting to the touch and a welcome modification to our otherwise cold, hard, metal and glass iDevices. So if you're looking to add an element of natural elegance to your iPad, I have a couple of great products to share with you. 



NuGuard's KX Case for iPhone: Successfully Bridging Hard Shell with Soft Silicone

When choosing an iPhone case, you usually have to make the tradeoff between a soft or hard design. Soft, rubberized cases allow you to get a good grip and have your phone stay in place on your desk or dash.

The Adventure-Proof series examines and reviews the best in rugged iOS gear, apps, and accessories to help iDevice users enjoy outdoor adventures with their mobile tech safely in tow.

The iPhone 5 Armor Series Case ($99.95) certainly lives up to its slogan, as "The Toughest Case Ever Built." This new OtterBox case is waterproof, dust proof, drop proof, and crush proof (as the video below clearly demonstrates), and is emerging as arguably the best protective iPhone case on the market.



Speck PixelSkin for iPod Touch 5G Review: Part 2 of Mini-Series

Those of you who read my last post know my son and I are writing a mini-series comparing four iPod Touch 5G cases made by Speck. Last week we reviewed Speck's Kangaskin with its built-in storage pouch on the back, and this week we're reviewing Speck's PixelSkin.

The new Otterbox Armor ($99.95) iPhone cases are arriving in stores Friday and with them a level of protection unprecedented in the world of rugged cases.

The Otterbox Armor series consists of possibly the toughest heavy-duty cases on the market. And of all the companies introducing waterproof cases this year, Otterbox is the only one I know of with offerings for the iPhone 4/4s series, capitalizing on the huge demand for the older iPhones.

I am notoriously hard on my iDevices. I carry them with me everywhere, which includes some rough terrain and adventurous situations. I have been consistently impressed with the performance and handling of Case-Mate Tough Xtreme cases, and specifically, the Case-Mate Tough Xtreme for the ultra-portable iPad mini.



Protect and care for your iPhone with great cases from Sena

There are a lot of reasons to keep your iPhone in a case. One reason is protection from damage and scuffs that can hurt resale value by as much as five percent, according to Brian Burke of SellYourMac.com. Another reason is to add some style to your favorite gadget. In either case (pun intended) after seeing a plethora of case makers at CES in Las Vegas, you should be able to find a case that meets your needs.



Apple's Rugged-Couture Demographic

It's not surprising really, when you think about it; the fact that in the past few years, right along with the explosion in popularity of the iPhone, we have seen a corresponding boom in the popularity of hardy gear designed to keep your mobile device safe in all circumstances, extreme or mundane, and look good while doing so too. It has a lot to do with what the Apple brand represents, and with the demographic Apple targets.



Best of CES 2013: Waterproof Cases

I just got back from the amazing and spectacular event that was 2013’s Consumer Electronics Show. I had a blast, it was a great time with great people. Nonetheless, I'm a country boy at heart, and it's nice to be back in the rugged wilderness (relatively speaking) that is Sedona Arizona.
 
If you follow my iPhone Life magazine articles and blog postings then you already know a bit about me. I'm an enthusiast of all things outdoorsy, rugged and environmentally friendly. That said, there was certainly no shortage of amazing new iOS gadgets and gear that could make valid claims of meeting the rigorous IP and MIL-STD-810 military-grade standards, that were being presented at this years CES. Read on for a sampling of some of my favorites in the category of heavy-duty, rugged and durable accessories. Trust me when I say, we have a lot to look forward to, in this category, this year.



iPhone Cases, iPad Covers, iPod Sleeves | iPhone Life Magazine

The market for iPhone cases is increasing exponentially with the release of the new iPhone 4S.  The companies that make the cases are always looking for more ways to capture their customers attention.  Whether practicality or style is more important, we review the products so that you don't have to.

Are you looking for a durable clip-on case for your new iPhone 4S? There are plenty of choices that exist already, thanks to the fact that the new iPhone's dimensions are the same as the original iPhone 4. One of the more recent cases to hit the market is Ballistic's Sport Rugged Universal Smartphone Pouch. How does it stack up to the competition? Read on to find out.  

iPhone cases are getting to be like jewelry… there seems to be a different case for every occasion. If the occasion is rugged outdoor activity, the Ballistic offers a tough, scratch-resistant nylon vertical flip case with a thick clip that holds on snuggly to a belt or strap. While it is just slightly on the bulky side, the case is lined along the bottom and sides with a stitched ridge that will absorb the shock of a drop fairly well.

If the occasion is more flashy (Gaga Style)... There are a lot of case makers out there, but there's only one Lady Gaga.  And LuxMobile has licensed her images and designs for their line of cases.  No strangers to luxury licensing, LuxMobile also offers cases with Ed Hardy and other trendy designs.  More feminine-friendly cases are becoming popular, and the Lady Gaga collection presented several options.  There is the understated 'diamond pattern' Romance style, but true Gaga fans may want something more outlandish.  No 'meat' cases currently, but you never know. 

Surc is a case and app combo that turns your iphone into a universal remote control. What makes this device stand out from the crowd is that the unit is sleek and adds little to the size or weight of the phone. Usually you have to add an attachment to the phone to convert it into a remote. Not with this one.  This remote goes above and beyond your basic remote. You can control multiple items in a room. On top of that, I was really impressed with the capabilities and customization that this unit allows. Add the buttons you want, move them around the screen, even use gestures to control your device. Shake the iPhone and you turn on or off your TV. Watch the video to see even more features.
