iPhone Life Weekly Weekend Giveaways! 12/9

image

 

Every weekend we will be raffling off tons of great apps and accessories for FREE. Here's how it works:



OutCast Jr. by SoundCast: Review

image

The OutCast Junior by SoundCast is a very portable and rechargeable sound device. Many people can probably remember when having a party and supplying music was a great challenge. Those days are now officially over. By using the Outcast Junior and an iPhone, iPod, or iPad a person may easily entertain guests accordingly. I was well amazed at the level and quality of sound this small speaker emitted.



Review: Profitville by 10tons Ltd

image

It’s the same old song and dance you’ve heard from movies like “You’ve Got Mail” to games like “Cake Mania”.  Corporate America is taking over and ruining the little mom and pop shops, or in this case a whole town.  While the premise is actually a bit more depressing than entertaining, Profitville still manages to make it loads of fun.  There’s no question that this game will test your sorting and judgment skills, and you’ll get so caught up in it that you’ll often wonder where your time has gone.  The real question is whether or not you have what it takes to put Profitville back on the map again.



Google releases Google Currents, a free Flipboard-like app

image

Flipboard is one of the most popular apps for the iPad. And it was so heavily downloaded when it was released earlier this week for the iPhone that the added traffic brought down Flipboard's servers. Now Google has jumped into this popular space — apps that aggregate your social media content, news, and other web content into a personally tailored, very attractive, magazine-like format. Google Currents (free) is available as a universal app for both the iPhone and iPad.



Hot Culture Review

image

The Hot culture app is the app arm of the culture.pl website which offers the latest in news and information concerning the Polish culture and events.  This app is beautifully designed and has an impressive amount of information which is updated every day.  Whether you’re looking for information about the latest polish singer or just an update on what is going on in the news, this app has everything you could ever want to know about the Polish culture.



NY Times: Emoji texting icons may be coming to iPhone

image

Texting is the main mode of communication for many smartphone users who disdain email, especially the younger generation. And in Asia, emoji icons have long been a staple of text messaging. They liven up text messages in a way not possible via emoticons -- those little smily faces or frowns made from colons and parentheses. Now Apple is apparently bringing emoji to the iPhone.



Free Flipboard app now available for iPhone

image

Big news late yesterday: the wildly popular Flipboard app (free) originally available only for the iPad is now available for the iPhone as a universal app. Flipboard is so popular, and so many iPhone users downloaded it, that CNET is reporting that the service is down. The app gives you an amazing new window onto Facebook and other social networking services.

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year—For Shopping Apps!

image

It’s the holidays, people.

I’ve got my credit card out and I’m ready to hit the shopping mall, baby! Let’s do this!

Not.

Really.

More like, I’ve got a thermos full of “special” hot chocolate in my coat pocket and an intense hatred for parking garages, filthy men’s rooms, and interminably long lines.

Oh, and bleeding money for a month solid? I’m not a fan.

Holiday shopping makes weep like Frosty the Snowman on a sunny day, but I managed to find a few apps that make it a little less painful, and I thought I’d share them with you today—just in time for you to hit the mall.



Wilson 801240 SignalBoost Mobile Professional Kits: Review

image

The Wilson booster will increase cell signal in any location. I personally live in a very mountainous area. The mountains decrease the amount of cell service from all locations where I live. Since, I have been using the Wilson booster my cell service as increase 200 percent. The increase in cell service with the booster is phenomenal. I am now able to make calls in locations with my cell phone where no one has been able to make a call. I don't have to be bothered with dropped phone calls anymore. It has really made my cell service completely different. Before I started using the Wilson amplifier, I could only get signal from a few locations.   Now I am able to talk on my cell phone in my home from any room.



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..."
