Bluelounge has been making some great accessories for smartphones, tablets, and computers for the past few years. We recently got a chance to test out the Saidoka dock for iPhone 5/5s ($49.95) and the Mika ($39.95), a universal stand for tablets, e-readers, and laptops. Will either deserve a place on your desk?
There are a great many options when it comes to incredible over-ear headphones, and they can range in price from under $50 to well over $400, and upward. Professional musicians and audiophiles alike tend to agree that a good pair of over-ear headphones will provide you with the most accurate and authentic listening experience available.
Several of us blogger musician types have raved about IK Multimedia gear over the years, and with good reason (see Mike Riley's recent reviews here.) Early this year at CES, I was able to get an up close and personal preview of the latest music creation gadgets, but only recently was able to check out the production versions of IK's iRig Pro and Blueboard. If you are wondering what in the world to get your favorite musician this holiday (with a Mac, iPad, or iPhone), look no further. You can check out the rocking guitar demo above for a taste!
If you happen to be one of the few folks on the planet who haven't experienced the revolutionary gameplay of the original Infinity Blade, now's your chance, no more excuses. For only the second time since this masterpiece of a game was released three years ago, Infinity Blade has gone free in the App Store in celebration of the season. But act fast, this deal likely won't last long.
City Birds (free from $0.99, Nov. 27-29)
Matching fans are in for a treat should they decide to take City Birds for a spin. This game is pure casual action fun that’s not quite like anything I’ve played before on my iPad, and given the amount of games I have played, that says quite a bit. It’s easy to learn and quickly gets addictive. The problem is that once you’ve unlocked all the birds and completed all the challenges, which sadly doesn’t take as long as one would like, the game grows kind of stale. Hopefully updates that are in the works will address this issue so that this original game can remain fresh to its players for quite some time.
I love it when a plan comes together... and I love it when a vendor enhances their product, either based on my review, or coincidentally with my recommendations! Either way, such improvements need to be recognized. Such is the case with HeartMath and their Inner Balance Sensor for iOS.
I don't typically write about the same app two or more times; there's only so much time to cover the one million apps out there. But VIPorbit, the Contact Manager deserves mention. VIPorbit was created by Mike Muhney, the co-creator of the original contact manager, ACT!, which took the world by storm in the late 1980s. When I last wrote about VIPorbit, I praised it, but criticized the color scheme. Thankfully, the latest version uses a much more elegant purple color palette.
Black Friday and the holidays are coming, so the odds are you are planning to upgrade your gear. I picked up a two of the iPhone 5s models and am planning to get an iPad mini Retina. This means I have a couple of iPhone 4's and an older iPad mini to do something with, not to mention a Kindle Fire that just collects dust.
It's getting cold outside, so if you're a cyclist and worried about tracking your workout while indoors, technology is coming to the rescue. XSPIN from PAFERS
claims to be "The World’s First Cycling 'Appcessory' for Indoor Fitness Equipment."
Bluetooth held great promise when it first appeared on the scene, but its Achilles Heel has always been long distance. Beyond ten meters, and certainly around 30 meters, the sound can be unreliable. If you're an audiophile, you wouldn't build a whole-house audio solution around Bluetooth. Even AirPlay locks you in to Apple devices and supported apps.
