When a new phone hits the market, along come the cases to accommodate it. My desk is cluttered with new cases with more pouring in every day. So, rather than an endless stream of individual case reviews, I’ve decided to cluster some together for a case round up.
I have two Findables cases to review the FlexStand and the FlexWrap. Findables cases are truly unique. They are called findable for a reason. If you lose your phone, and it’s in a Findable case, all you have to do is go to the free Findables app (what case comes with its own app?) and change the status of your phone to lost. If someone finds it, they will undoubtedly scan the embedded QR code on the back of the case. They will then be instructed how to return the phone. Chances are you will get your phone back. Pretty slick.
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.
The PED4 Mount CH50 ($49.99) is a custom iPhone mount that holds your iPhone steady while mounted to a car, desk, wall, boat…anything you like. It’s different from other phone mounts because it has an asymmetrical double balled stainless steel curved shaft that allows you to position your phone in an endless number of orientations.
EDUMOTION's Stop Motion- Animation Pro is a remarkably easy-to-use application that puts the power of stop-motion filming in its users’ hands. With Stop Motion Animation Pro, no special equipment is necessary to create your very own stop-motion film. Stop- motion film is created by playing many still frames in quick succession, in which a scene has been subtly adjusted for each frame. This creates the illusion of smooth motion when using a series of inanimate scenes.
I’ve already made my displeasure known about iOS products not having removable batteries so you can carry a spare. And when the battery goes bad you have to send in the device to be repaired at rapacious rates. Wouldn’t it be better for all concerned to be able to slip in a new battery when it goes dead? Oh well. Nobody listens to me.
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.
Everyone expects Apple to release an iWatch some day, and until then, several players have tried to fill that void. The most publicized player in the SmartWatch field is Pebble, and I was one of their early backers. I have been using mine for several months now and have come to rely on it. My phone can be in my pocket, backpack, or downstairs, and I can still get my Caller ID displayed on my wrist. I can even reject a call and send it to voicemail. But I can't answer the phone.
