Mosy Mount Tripod Adapter Case: Review

image

 

Many of the iPhone tripod mounting solutions only work for the iPhone 4, and/or require the iPhone be used without a case.  This leaves the iPhone exposed to unwanted harm.  The Mosy Mount features a pocket friendly low profile design making it attractive & convenient – it’s always there when you need it, but not in the way when you don’t.

Retail $19.95. 



Wake Smarter Review - Not just another dumb alarm app!

image

The typical alarm clock will wake you in the morning by emanating a terrible pulsing screech or similarly upsetting noise. True that newer models offer better options than the 5AM screech, but wouldn't you rather your alarm clock do something smarter than that? Maybe tell you the weather, the latest news, your calendar events for the day followed by your favorite tunes (without commercials and other distractions)? Wake Smarter does all of those things. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that it uses voice recognition so you can even yell at it!



Tiles can be fun...

image

Tile-R is a simple, but very interesting iPhone App. It uses your picture to make a set of tiles. You can adjust it to make as many tiles out of your picture as you want. While experimenting with it, I came across one tile of a picture of me that struck me. I know that you can crop the same thing. I think what I like about it is that I wouldn't have normally sliced the pictures the way Tile-R did it. I think it's cool. How about you? Incidentally, it's free.

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..."
