TK-421 Case-Keyboard Review - Perfect Accessory Gift!

image

An external keyboard is a good way to flaunt the power of iPhone Bluetooth, but to be effective, it has to be compact enough to be carried around. Maybe you would like a keyboard that doubles as a case--hmmm, what would that be like? Oh yeah, and flips out like one of those trippy flip phones with a thumbpad too! Woah...! The TK-421 from ThinkGeek.com is just what you have been looking for...



Books-A-Million adds new ebook reader App!

image

I love BAM bookstores, mainly because of the excellent discount racks where I often find great books for as low as a dollar. They also offer some really good in-store discounts. BAM has a large on-line ebook collection of course, but up until recently, you needed a Nook device to download books. Now they have a free iPhone reader that will let you read ePub books, PDF docs, and works with Adobe DRM content!



Lobster, get it here!

image

Here' a fine little app, Dorr Lobster (free) by Mobilaurus for Dorr Lobster Company down in Milbridge, Maine. The app is really just an extension of their retail business, so no frills, but it delivers. Literally! Want some lobster? Ayuh, they have that. How bout some crab, mussel, scallop, smoked shrimp, smoked salmon, or some wicked good organic Highland Steak? Ayuh, they got that too. Actually they have more so download their app and check it out.



Baloonia pipe game in App store!

image

Haven't gotten round to reviewing it, but Baloonia seems to be getting good comments on the App store. Looking for a pipe puzzler to help pass time this holiday, this might be the game you were looking for. You can grab it here for the practically universal price of 99 cents...



The Daily Show App Has Arrived!

image

TV news has changed quite a bit in the last number of years. When a comedian takes over Walter Cronkite's "Most Trusted Name In News" title, I can only shake my head and wonder. That being said, I love the Daily Show. So much so, I download it from iTunes to watch it on my iPad, since I don't have cable. I think it is a bargain at $10 for 16 episodes.



Infinity Blade on its way to #1

image

If you have tried the beautiful free (and somewhat promotional) app Epic Citadel, you have been waiting for this day.  Infinity Blade ($5.99 Universal) is out and I'm downloading all 300+MB of it now.  I'll post a full review soon, but you will want to check out the game that may prove to Nintendo, Sony, and others that the iOS platform is a gaming system to be reckoned with.



*<<<<+ Means Christmas!

I like LRN the Lingo (.99), I think it does what it says in a straight forward and easy to use way. 



Review: Aqua Panic Deluxe by BulkyPix

image

When Lemmings arrived in 1991 the world took note, because there really hadn’t been a game like it until then.  Unlike many game styles today I don’t think this one really “took off”, but there have certainly been a number of clones and variants since the original firecracker-popping critters came strolling along.  Aqua Panic is one such game, but instead of manipulating individual creatures to guide the pack you actually direct the course of the stream of water the creatures are swimming in.  The game is interesting, but I’m not sure I’m real keen on the interface, and so far I don’t have a compelling urge to sit and play more than a couple of levels at a time.



PODSTA because your iPhone just wants to be held

image

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).



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..."
