PODSTA because your iPhone just wants to be held

Ah the life of a reviewer.  Two products arrived today, one in a plain brown paper wrapped box and the other in a cute, rainbow colored cylinder.  Guess which one got opened first? PODSTA makes a cute product worthy of their packaging, and lighthearted web presence.  They even sell t-shirts with their tagline (HOLD ME).

Remember Epic Citadel? The awesome game app that really wasn’t a game. If you recall, Epic Citadel enjoyed a brief moment on several Top App lists several months ago when lots of curious folks downloaded this free demo of the Unreal 3 Engine for the Iphone/Ipad.

iMainGo X Product Review

image

There are plenty of cases and speaker accessories for iPods and iPhones, but rarely do you find these two accessory categories combined into the same product. That is what Portable Sound Laboratories' iMainGo X attempts to accomplish.  Read on to find out how well this category mash-up succeeds.

The iMainGo X appears to be designed mostly for iPod Touch owners who spend most of their time listening to audio, but would prefer to do so on the go with a compact, conveniently portable, high quality set of stereo speakers. For that specific market demographic, the iMainGo X will be as close to a perfect match one could hope to find. The iMainGo X essentially turns your iPod Touch into something about the size of two original Sony Walkmans stacked on top of eachother.

Infinite Dreams, makers of the excellent K-Rally (which I still play)--a Pocket PC and Symbian classic (see a sneak peek of the upcoming K-Rally 3-D iPhone version here)--the iP version looks awesome. If you are interested to see what a dev dude can cook up in like a day, check out the free (with ads) version of Plasma Globe. It's not earth-shattering, but it is free, and been downloaded only a million times... Kind of a trippy, psychedelic version of Asteroids!

Food Network In the Kitchen - App Review

image

As an avid fan of the quality programming found on the Food Network, I was ecstatic to find that the TV giant had released an app for the iPhone and iPad that would allow me to access their vast library of recipes while working away in my own kitchen. The app is excellent in almost every way one could hope for, but it does have a few quirks that keep it from being as great as it could be.

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..."
