Apple Store app -- buy accessories without help of a clerk

image

Imagine this: you use the Apple Store app (free) to buy an accessory for your iOS device, walk into in Apple Store, take the product off the shelf, and walk out of the store with it. According to MacRumors, this self-checkout capability may be coming as early as this week. Apparently, as you leave the store you'll simply show the clerk your receipt on your iPhone. However, this only applies to accessories.

Reports of data speed issues on Sprint iPhone

Sprint, the third-largest cell phone carrier, has been struggling financially for several years, and its new iPhone 4S is expected to be a boon to its bottom line. And to enhance the appeal of its iPhone offering, Sprint has continued its policy of unlimited data — watch all the movies you want on your iPhone. That's good for attracting customers, but not so good at conserving network bandwidth. Now there are reports that some Sprint iPhone 4S users are experiencing pokey data speeds.

Go ahead and brag.  Whether it's because your kid is an honor student or your niece is adorable, or just because you have an iPad or iPhone.  Or maybe it's all of the above?!  If so, you are in luck because the nice folks at Braggables.com have a line of iOS accessories (named iBrag of course) that let you carry your gadgets in style and brag about your loved ones at the same time!

Review: Fling A Thing by Big Blue Bubble

image

Are you ready for the ultimate bubble popping experience?  Forget all those games that simulate bubble wrap and prepare to fling your thing.  This new game from Big Blue Bubble is odd, quirky and probably one of the most entertaining bubble related games I’ve played on my iPod Touch.  The things are goofy, the power ups are cool, and the whole atmosphere just exudes addictive causal game.  Unlockables take a bit of time to acquire, but that’s really my only gripe so far.



Apple expected to offer 4G LTE iPhone in 2012

image

"4G", "LTE" — what does it all mean? In short, speed. Phone carriers are working hard to implement fourth-generation (4G) networks so that you can have a very speedy Internet connection. How fast? If you live in Texas and have a 4G phone, according to DailyTech, you could see speeds as fast as 42Mbps, with an average of 24Mbps. That's much faster than many home DSL or cable connections. These speeds are available on LTE (long-term evolution) networks, which are now state-of-the-art and are being rolled out across the country. But...



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..."
