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



Will Apple announce two iPhones?

image

We've repeated several rumors that Apple will be announcing two iPhones -- contributing to the nearly impossible expectations. I don't envy Tim Cook, who will be facing such high expectations in his very first product introduction as CEO. Now a recent post on AppleInsider is quoting market analysts are are saying that it's likely that only one phone will be introduced. 



iPhone 5 cases show up at an AT&T store

There's a whole lotta confusion among the various rumors, and adding to the mix is the appearance of iPhone 5 cases in AT&T stores. The cases suggest that the new iPhone will be thinner with tapered edges. You can read more and see photos on the cases in a post on MacRumors. The post still holds out the possibility, though, that Apple may not introduce a redesigned iPhone -- that other evidence is suggesting an iPhone 4S instead. It won't be long until the mystery is solved.

iNibby Nibble App Review

image

 

This is a remake of a classic Amiga game called Nibby Nibble. The visuals in iNibby Nibble are more refined than the classic version as there are more curved surfaces rather than levels made up of square grids (for the outer walls). The level backgrounds in iNibby Nibble don't really move and seem pre-rendered. 



iPhone 5 invitation hints at speech recognition in iOS 5

image

Apple's invitation for the October 4 event announcing the new iPhone said, "Let's talk iPhone." In the past, the wording of the invitation was a clue to the major theme. So speculation is mounting that this is referring to the deep integration of speech recognition long rumored to be part of iOS 5. Last year Apple bought Siri, a leader in natural language understanding on the iPhone with their free Siri Assitant app. And Apple is rumored to be partnering with Nuance, the developer of a leading line of speech recognition products.



Apple may be considering curved cover glass for future iPhone

image

DigiTimes apparently has a mixed record in regard to rumors. Most recently they're speculating that Apple may be looking into the use of curved cover glass on the iPhone. The evidence: Apple has reportedly purchased 300 glass-cutting machines earlier this year.

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..."
