Video on Japanese site offers more evidence for 4-inch screen on iPhone 5

image

The iPhone 5 apparently won't be announced until September or October, but evidence continues to mount that suggests it will have a 4-inch display. Now a video has been posted on a Japanese website showing a front panel for the new iPhone and comparing it with that of a current iPhone. It gives you a clear picture of how much taller the new phone will be. Of course, we don't know if this is a legitimate front panel, and even if it is, we don't know whether Apple will come out with this form factor or some other one that they might be working on.



A Unique Touch: X-Doria iPad And iPhone Accessories.

image

In the ever-so-crowded field of cases and folios for iDevices it's an understatement to say that it can be a challenge for one brand to stand out from the crowd. To that end, X-Doria is a company that has created a unique and varied product line-up, products that appeal both to a sense of touch as well as a sense of visual aesthetics.



OtterBox presents new battle-ready Armor series case!

Here is a case that Hannibal would have lovingly embraced, and why not? You could potentially use it (with iPhone encased) as a small personal shield for say your sword hand, what with that steel latch fused to the bottom there. Ok, that might be a bit much, but it will protect your iPhone better than anything short of stuffing it into a bank vault. When out conquering Romans, you can't afford to have your iPhone get smashed on a rock, or crushed under a falling elephant, which will likely ruin your day! OtterBox has a serious Armor case coming for the serious conqueror (insert Police, Fire, Soldier, EMT, Construction worker, etc.)... All "proofs" apply (dust, drop, crush, water)--coming soon!



Review: Blocks Hurt! by Luca Giusti

image

I often find myself in a position where I get a game to review, and then I just don’t get to it for a long time, but when I finally do I think to myself “boy do I wish I would have played this sooner”.  Yep, Blocks Hurt is one of those games… at least that’s how I felt when I first started playing it.  A few levels into the game I couldn’t decide if I still wanted to embrace it or if I was ready to chuck my iPod Touch out the window.  Fortunately I’m not in a position to go the latter route.  As it happens Blocks Hurt is one of the most creative matching / combat games I’ve run into on my iDevices, so I’ll tough it out for now.



Tarelcus App Review

When people are looking for a game; there are times that they want something that is challenging, but easy to figure out.  Tarelcus offers exactly that; a concept based on original games from decades ago.  However, because times have changed; the graphics and music are clearly up-to-date with some new surprises on every level.  It's a constantly changing game!



Photos of iPhone 5 parts reveal details of appearance

If you want to know what the next iPhone will probably look like, head on over to 9To5Mac. They've got a number of photos of the various parts of the iPhone 5, including the aluminum back plate, the frame, and the front glass. These parts are in accord with the latest rumors: a taller device with a 4-inch screen, a smaller dock connector, and a relocated headphone jack. In addition, the front-facing camera is now centered. It's interesting to see the two-tone design on the back.



Pocket Informant On Sale Again

I know I have written about this app multiple times, but I still rely on it as my go-to calendar app and feel so strongly about it that I would feel guilty if I let this opportunity go by without letting you know.

Review: Bubble Pig by Donut Games

image

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – Donut Games is the king of causal arcade games.  They often manage to take a silly premise and turn it into quite the enjoyable product, which is exactly the case with Bubble Pig.  The idea of an overweight pig bouncing around a forest consuming everything edible in sight and avoiding foxes doesn’t really sound all that enthralling, but when you put the patent Donut Games spin on it the game becomes both interesting and quite challenging.  I’m not going to put this at the top of the Donut Games’ chart, but it certainly has their trademark quality level.



Everything iPhone - Apps, Accessories, Reviews, Wallpapers etc | iPhone Life Magazine

The iPhone has become a benchmark for all other smartphones to compete with.  Reviews on the cases, accessories, apps, wallpapers and more are located below.  Here are a couple of Articles that showcase what we have to offer.  For eaxample, iPhone 4S by Alex Cequea (iPhone Life Magazine Editor in Chief).

In that article, Alex says that the iPhone 4S has the exact same physical form factor as the iPhone 4. However, the insides are a whole different story, and Apple tried to make that very clear. The most notable improvements are the 8MP camera with 1080p video recording, the A5 dual-core processor (same as the iPad 2), and an improved battery life (8 hours of 3G talk time, 200 hours of standby). As far as the capabilities, the new Siri Assistant feature was the highlight of the show. The Siri Assistant recognizes natural language and can answer questions such as, "What's the temperature out today?" Combined with the phone's GPS, you can say something like, "Remind me to call my wife when I get to work." The Assistant will not only know who your "wife" is, it'll also know where "work" is and pop up a reminder to "call Marcy" when you get there."

Here's another great article, The Best iPhone 4 Cases. This article goes on to explain that like its iPhone predecessors, cases have become one of the most popular ways to accessorize your cell phone. Most cell phone consumers buy a case bundled with their new phone to protect it from day one. And who can blame them? Mobile devices have become hugely valuable and expensive items; you want to protect them the best way you can. There are literally hundreds of cases on the market. Let's examine the different options available on the market to help you choose the one that's right for you.


What to know how to create your own app?  "The first step in creating an app is to understand what you want to create and how you will measure its success. Make sure the idea is well vetted and there is a solid business case behind it. There are roughly 600 new apps submitted to Apple each day—what is going to differentiate your app from the thousands that are already available and being launched each week? Here are some questions you’ll want to ask when getting your app idea..."
