Charging on the go... One of the questions I get most often from folks embarking on summertime adventues with tech toys is: "How do I keep my devices charged while on my travels?"
That's a great and crucial question! To address that concern, I'd like to introduce to you two handy, affordable and very useful products: the goBAT II portable USB battery charger by Scosche, and the Mojo Armor external battery case by ibattz.
I've written before about the iCade retro arcade cabinet for the iPad, and again when I saw a preview of the mobile version for the iPhone and iPod
touch, at the Consumer Electronics Show, but I've finally had a chance to play with that mobile version, and get some hands on time.
Check out the Featured App Store bundles if you haven't yet. Several of the best apps you will likely find on the app store, all nicely sorted into related bins can be had thus. Last night I found myself perusing the dinosaur related app/games bundle (under Game Collections), and of course there is a 3D FPS game in there called Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter that I couldn't resist. The game turned out to be a mere 74MB of totally cool, and immersive hunting of the prehistoric beasties, which ran just fine even on my old original iPad with it's old-school graphics! Also this week, played with the latest release of Album Flow (see previous review here), since the developer made some interesting tweaks to the new version. Album Flow brings Cover Flow to iPad (or now iPhone), in case you were wondering, but with some interesting new capabilities. More news from the gaming realm at the end--lot's to cover so let's jump in, shall we...?
Greetings fellow iTravelers and iAdveturers! Welcome back to my special Summer Travel series, in which I take a look at great apps and awesome accessories that can make our summertime adventures more convenient and more enjoyable.
There's never a shortage of Apple-related headlines these days! Here's a brief look at a few stories that have caught my attention and which I wanted to share with all of you!
Don't let the water stop you!
Greetings my fellow travelers and adventures and welcome once again to my Summer Travel special series here at iPhone Life. In this installment I'd like to share with you one of my favorite apps for on the road and on the go adventures.
Max Power Adventures is another role-playing game, but with a humorous twist. Since there are so many different RPG's available, it only makes sense to develop a parody to mock them all. For those that are sincerely into gaming, you may get a kick out of this one.
The controls are pretty basic as well as the concept of the game. The developers take in great detail to explain every little thing including the rules and storyline. Yes, you will be saving a princess, but the superhero Max is more excited about the combat than his prize. After all, there doesn't seem to be much hiring of superheroes occurring during the depression.
Being a computer geek in the 80s, I spent much of my mid-childhood engulfed in the world of adventure games. Sure such things exist today (if you look beyond the fact that many publications call anything they don’t know what to classify as an adventure), but back then there were companies that were actually known and praised for such fare. Mystery Lighthouse pays homage to such games, and it actually does it quite well. This is a far cry from Digi-Chain’s previous effort, Dungeon of the Damned, and in my opinion a much better game.
Greetings fellow travelers and adventurers, and welcome to my special summer travel series! To go along with iPhone Life's upcoming special Summer Travel digital issue, I'll be doing a special summer column featuring some of the best gear, gadgets and apps that can help make your summer adventures even more convenient, enjoyable and memorable.
First up in the series, I'd like to introduce you to a relatively new product on the market: the Verbatim Mobile Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard.
With the exploding popularity of Facebook, Twitter, E-Mail and texting over the last ten years or so it has quickly become difficult to keep up on them all. If you are spending time sending out messages to your friends and family through all these different tools it can get quite repetitive and time consuming. The AmIOK app has solved that problem by allowing its users to make Facebook status updates, Twitter updates, and send e-mails and texts all at once.
