Limited Time Offer - Galaxy on Fire 2™ HD available at HALF PRICE!

image

One of my all-time fav games ever, Galaxy on Fire 2™ HD, is on sale for a limited time at 50% off ($4.99). This game is a smorgasbord of awesome 3D space action and adventure for iPad and iPhone! You can spend hours just trading and exploring/hopping from world to world, building your own home grown weapons, and upgrading your ship. Sometimes, for kicks I turn guns on a friendly, become a space pirate and see how long I can survive! Of course, you can also immerse yourself fully in the storyline and play along with the main game objectives. Whichever way you go, it's just good old-fashioned fun and it's now half priced! More info follows the break...

What If You Don't Have Siri? A Look At Personal Voice Assistant Alternatives To Siri.

image

   Not to negate the progress that has been made recently in the area of artificial intelligence vocal assistant apps, but relatively speaking, this technology, at a consumer level, is still in its infancy. Even Siri is technically still a BETA release. So we can expect to see some glitches and hang ups in all of the current alternatives for vocal assistant software. That said, some are definitely better than others.



Google Drive now available -- apps for iPhone, iPad coming soon

image

Dropbox has been an incredible boon. It's like my workspace: any document that I'm actively working on automatically goes in my Dropbox folder on my computer. As I make changes, the new version is immediately uploaded. It's like autosave on steroids, in that not only are all my changes saved, but they're also being stored offsite. And if I'm working on something and then head to lunch, there's the document on my iPad in case I need to look at it. That's the beauty of the cloud. I can't edit the document directly in Dropbox on my iPad, but there are very low cost office suites that work seamlessly with Dropbox.



FantasyxRunners App Review

image

The FantasyxRunners app puts a new and exciting twist on the popular ‘running’ type of app.  Like other runner apps the game is played with your character running across the screen and either avoiding or killing enemies and jumping over pits and other obstacles.  While running through the different levels you collect rubies by running over them or collecting them from enemies which you kill.  When running you can’t stop or turn around so you have to have quick reflexes to collect all the possible rubies.



UNU battery case for all day iPhone usage

image

I've written, favorably, about other cases from UNU/iBattz before, but their latest case, the UNU DX Plus, packs even more power. With an extra 2400mAh of juice, you can more than double the battery life of your iPhone 4 or 4S.





Go ahead and go ballistic with the Lifestyle Smooth iPhone case

I'm always on the lookout for the right iPhone case, and usually that means swapping out cases based on the occasion. For a fancy night out, I'll look for a sleek case. For camping, something rugged. For day to day use, something with protection but not too bulky. And for extended use, away from power outlets, I'll want a case with a built-in battery pack. It's hard to find a case that meets more than one of those requirements.



Tame your cables with CableJive

Ever since I bought my new iPad, which is more power hungry than the iPad 2, I have been looking for ways to keep it charged. I have several iPhone docks around the house, but they don't have room to support an iPad.

UPDATE: Sold out in under two hours!

WWDC 2012 just announced and tickets are on sale at https://developer.apple.com/wwdc/

Two years ago, at $1600/ticket plus expenses, I wasn't sure if I would go, and tickets sold out in 8 days.  Last year I determined ahead of time that I would go, and tickets sold out in one day!  But I did indeed make it and got to see Steve Jobs one last time.  Expect tickets to sell out today, so don't delay!



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..."
