Latest iphone reviews blogs
I love technology and am quick to upgrade to the latest gadget. I tell myself that it's a business requirement, both as a writer for iPhone Life Magazine and as a developer of apps. But the truth is, even if I had a different job, I'd be upgrading when each new iPhone came out.
The rising popularity of active lifestyle image capture is fueling the creation purpose-built devices like the GoPro HD camera and other products. Yet for iPhone users who already know that their camera is as capable as these dedicated alternatives but don't want to spend what is often more for these cameras than what they paid for iPhone itself is a hard sell. Fortunately, Hitcase has developed a Pro version of their durable iPhone hardshell case that offers iPhone owners a comparable experience without having to buy into a whole new hardware ecosystem.
Just Mobile is one of those companies that, like Apple, consistently designs elegant products. The simplicity of their product, from iPad and iPhone stands to styli and device chargers, masks the thoughtful hours of design and number of internal iterations that they created to bring the final version to market. Does their stand designed to hold headphones continue Just Mobile's commitment to functionally beautiful accessories? Read on to find out.
I have regaled the iPhoneLife readers with tales of Galaxy on Fire 2, which is my personal favorite Space shooter RPG on iPad (and frankly stunning on my mini), but looks like there is a relatively new space game in town also with some pretty sweet-looking space combat visuals! I'll be posting up a review soon, but you can check out the animated eye-candy in the embedded vid above. The title is Galactic Phantasy Prelude, is currently 99 cents and you can get it here. I've already checked out some of the online comments, noting that upgrades rely heavily on IAPs, which will turn me off, but I'll leave the jury out until I review it.
The following post talks about my usage of the above two STM products over the last few weeks. I want to thank STM for sending these review samples over, and apologize for the delay in getting this posted. All my photos will be at the end of the quick review. I’m always looking for a good shoulder/messenger type bag. That’s essentially my portable office. Between working at home and multiple store locations, I don’t have my own office. This is it and I really like to be organized. The Velo (I’m using the medium size, mushroom color.) is a shoulder bag that has loads of storage.
It has been many weeks since a WIPTW post up, due to work, and really Trigger Fist; because I can't stop playing it! I did manage to pull myself away long enough to check out two also very cool indie games that are featured this week, both of which played nicely on the new iPad mini (review of that coming as well). When I started this review, I was listening to hurricane Sandy pound the crap out of my house while watching endless spiral bands of rain rolling in from the Atlantic on radar. My windows were leaking water, but the lights were still on (though flickering ominously), so it felt like I was on one of those old WW2 battleships riding the Pacific high seas...kind of like the game I was playing at the time! A game called...er, Battle Fleet (lame segue, but hey I tried). The other awesome game featured this week is a totally original platform game called Green Rage. Think alien adventure shoot-em-up and you as the alien. Both of these games are keepers, but Green Rage for iPad/iPhone only plays well on newer iOS devices/versions (iPad2/3/mini, iPhone 4S/5, and iPod 5), so wanted to point that out before diving in. UPDATE 11/6/2012...Green Rage is being pulled from the App store by the vendor (to fix a few things), but will return soon, so I pulled the links above... Learn more in the review below. Battle Fleet is available for 99 cents tomorrow (11/07/12) thanks to a special promotion from One Dollar Wednesday...
Magnet boy is a fun puzzle arcade adventure game that challenges you to fly from magnet to magnet picking up various parts to build a robot. The story of the game starts when a professor who has been building incredible robots is attacked by an evil villain. The villain destroys the professor’s robots and crashes them into many pieces. As the hero of this story, Magnet Boy has to search high and low to find the parts of every destroyed robot, and put them back together.
Am working on a full review of this quirky and unique new platformer from Paralline just released called Green Rage. If you have experienced the platform genre in the past, and think you have seen it all, you haven't and will want to grab this one ($1.99)! You mostly scurry along through twisted and varied obstacles, jump and evade baddies, and shoot stuff! Have to warn that it's version 1.0, and I had some issues with my older devices. The dev is working on those, but if you have a newer iPhone/iPad device running iOS 5.0 or later, shouldn't be a problem. Get it at the link above for iPad or here for iPhone...
Outdoor Technology’s Adapt
is one of those clever inventions that seem self-evident after the fact. Once you see it, it just makes sense,
and almost immediately your mind begins to think of numerous ways it would be convenient to have around! In fact, the Adapt by Outdoor Technology is a relatively simple device; a Bluetooth relay with a built-in microphone, which recieves and transmits a Bluetooth signal between any devices equipped with a 3.5 mm audio jack. But that succinct description doesn't do this handy gadget justice.
Google it. See for yourself. There isn't really anything else on the market quite like this. Yes, there are a few bulky Bluetooth recievers or transmitters floating around out there, but noting this balanced between being a reciever, a transmitter and a microphone, all in a self-contained mini-adapter. Definitely nothing else this tiny or ruggedly built! This is a unique gizmo, in part because it doesnt attach to the transmission (iPhone) side of things, it attaches to the reciever (earphone) side of things, making your speakers, headset or car stereo Bluetooth enabled, just like that! The trailblazers at Outdoor Technology have an original product on their hands, one that sets a high bar for any such versatile Bluetooth adapters to come! Read on for more deatils on this amazing little invention!
