A Whole Lot of Tweeting Going On?

Its simple to see some of these newer apps on the rise but some of the most important ones are whats most popular; not just new.  Social Networking sites such as Twitter, Facebook, and other blogging websites alone are all popular amongst not only the younger age group; however every single group of ages!  Companies are now using Twitter as well as Facebook to promote and advertise and we see it more and more everywhere we turn.  Specifically, Twitter seems to be on more of a rise since its launch.  The 140 character limit on a "tweet" seems to allow for more of a quick and to the point message to send to all of its followers.  

 



iCrystal Dock... The Coolest Dock in Town!

image

Decent audio dock components (ones that don't cost a fortune, but produce a good sound) for iPod (only iPod...correction posted) are pretty common now, but finding one that looks totally cool doing it is always a bonus. This year, I checked out quite a few audio-related components for iPhone, and iPod (starting  back in January at CES). The iCrystal is one of my favorites in this category of dock for iPod. It plays music, it charges, and it looks totally awesome in the process...



Moshi doesn't stay in my car!

The Moshi Voice Control Bluetooth Speakerphone is supposed to stay in your car, but mine doesn’t. Just for fun, I hooked it to my computer screen in my office and I discovered that using it in the office is just as convenient as using it in the car! When I get a call, I continue working and answer the phone call at the same time!

Pinball wizards who are fans of Pinball HD for the iPad will be happy to learn that the same developer has created a pinball table for Sony Music themed with the heavy metal rock band Slayer.

Fans of Slayer's music will no doubt find the pinball interpretation of their music and visual style worth investigating, but for those of us who are not Slayer fans yet still looking for a pinball fix beyond Pinball HD will be satisfied with this game.



Keep Up With What's New In The App World

If you're like me you are constantly checking to see what's new in the iPhone/iPad app world. I love it when new apps come out that help me enjoy my devices more.....and do things more efficiently. There are two apps that make my searching much easier. One is Appshopper which keeps an updated list of new apps. You can search by iPhone or iPad, review price history, look for only free apps and a whole lot more. You can add apps to a wish list so at any point you can see if they have dropped in price. But if you are really looking for a way to catch a deal as soon as it happens Appsniper is for you. This is not a universal app but still works on the iPad.

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..."
