Insanely Great is crazy enough to make their phone stands in the USA! #MacWorld

image
The mobile accessory company Insanely Great may get their name from one of Steve Jobs' sayings, but in addition to designing their products in California, Insanely Great actually makes them there, too. It helps that their phone stands and holders have a few basic parts, specifically molded plastic, grippy backing, and suction cups. But the finished product is attractive, solid, colorful, and useful. Their product names are even whimsical!





Opena let's you open a beer or other bottle #MacWorld

image
There are a surprising number of vendors offering an iPhone case that includes a beer bottle opener, but the Opena model stands out for a few reasons. Rather than have the opening mechanism around the Apple logo on the back of the iPhone case, the Opena has a slide out opener made of stainless steel. This means, when opening a bottle, the pressure is not placed directly on the phone.





Nomad goes where no stylus has gone before #MacWorld

image
There are a lot of stylus' out there, but Nomad Brush has a couple that make a big difference. First, the Nomad Play is targeted at kids thanks to its smaller length, larger width, and wooden handle. But what really sets it apart is the paintbrush style tip, with conductive fibers so users can 'paint' directly on the screen. There is a rubber base where the fibers meet the stylus, so it reduces the chance of kids scraping the screen.

image

We'll have months of rumors before we find out what the next iPhone will be. And the latest is, again, that the phone will have a 4-inch screen and that it may be coning out in the summer. 9To5Mac says that they got their information from someone inside Foxconn, the Chinese company that manufactures the iPhone. And they say that the same source was accurate last summer, when he said that an iPhone 4S was in the works and that a new form factor wouldn't appear until 2012.

iGLASSES, a free app recently launched by Green Cloud, offers iOS users that fancy themselves comedians a quick, fun way to transform their photos into something funny.

The Gymbl is considered to be a pocket tripod for the iPhone 4S which sits on three legs. It's extremely compact and easy to carry in a backpack, purse, or coat pocket.



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.

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..."
