Dual simcard capability for iPhone 4: Unique battery case with extra simcard slot

image

 

Many business travelers often need to be contactable on two mobile numbers: one local number for their business clients and another personal number for family and friends. Until now, this means having two mobile phones and the inconvenience of having to make sure that contacts are transferred from one phone to another, or having to forward messages from one phone to another.

Facebook Cover Designer Review

image

The facebook cover designer app makes creating great looking profile pictures or timeline covers quick and easy, right from your iPhone.  Since the new timeline profile feature came out on facebook there have been a few different places on the net which allow you to create some custom timelines, but there was never anything that could work right on your phone.  This was a big problem for many people since the majority of pictures taken and used on facebook today are shot right from phones or other camera enabled smart phones. 



Review: The Passenger by Loading Home

image

I love adventure games, as it was probably the first genre I got hooked on when I started playing computer games.  As the genre goes it’s always nice to see an original IP pop up in the App Store, so I was pretty excited when I ran across The Passenger.  After playing and finishing it, however, I’m not quite sure how I feel about it.  There are certainly some nice points to the game, but ultimately it felt too basic and more disappointedly, way too short.  I’d still be more than happy to see a sequel, but the game will need a lot more meat to produce I viable franchise.



Uniqueness without Bulkiness: DomeSkin Review

image

DomeSkin is an awesome way to add personality to the iPad or iPhone. Many users insist on keeping the iPad thin, the way it was designed. Most cases that provide adequate protection from dropping or such add bulk to the device. DomeSkin allows the user to protect their device from scratches and bumps without adding any bulk at all. Each DomeSkin is simply a heavy-duty 3M film that covers the outer edges of the face and the entire back of the iDevice and offers full access to all the ports and buttons.



Windows Updated Jailbreak With Absinthe

The Time has finally arrived for windows users to get a simple jailbreak.  The Absinthe jailbreak was released for the mac yesterday.  I am glad to inform all the iPhonelife viewers the windows version is now available.  Simply, download the software to your computer, install, and jailbreak.  This is very simple, just a few clicks and your jailbroken.  The process will take around thirty minutes to complete.  Possibly longer should you have several hundred apps on the devices.  My iPhone 4S jailbreak took around thirty minutes to complete.

Jabra STONE Bluetooth Headset: Review

image

The Jabra STONE is shaped like no other Bluetooth headset available. It wraps behind the ear, eliminating the standard microphone that faces the mouth of the user. How many times have you seen someone wearing a Bluetooth headset that looked more like they had been singing in a concert?

 



TidyTilt brings one of the smartest iPad features to the iPhone

image

Why didn't I think of this?  Better yet, why didn't Apple?  One of the attractive elements of the iPad 2 is the Smart Cover.  So why should the iPhone miss out on the action?  That was the thinking of Zahra and Derek, two Chicago-based enterprising entrepreneurs who created TidyTilt and used KickStarter.com to successfully fund it.

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..."
