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.

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.

MediaSafe App Review

image

If you've been looking for an app that will allow you to keep your media hidden from spying eyes; then MediaSafe is the app for you.  It serves as your personal safe where you can hold photos, videos, contacts, and notes that are blocked behind a finger slide code.  It is your personal combination that will eventually allow access, but will lock up if someone else tries and continuously gets it wrong.

I'm loving my new screen protector, the iVisor AG from Moshi!  It was so easy to put on (literally took 30 seconds).  And they are right...no bubbles!  And it's thin enough where I can use any case with it.  It comes in black and white. 



Trident Kraken iPhone Case: Review

image

The Trident Kraken iPhone 4S case offers superb protection. The case consists of three separate components.  The main component is the rubber substance that surrounds the iPhone completely for protection.  This could be used as a separate case to protect the iphone by itself. However, combined with the Exoskeleton, polycarbonate pieces that are included the iPhone is completely protected.   The case also has a kickstand on the back used for standing the phone up for watching videos and such. All of the buttons and ports are accessible but most are covered by some type of rubberized protection. The headphone jack has somewhat limited access. They do include an extension for reaching the headphone jack for fixing the problem.

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..."
