The only Iphone case review I’ll ever do – cos it’s also a Li-Polymer battery pack at only 59 grams!

I normally don’t pay attention to Iphone cases because I prefer to spend my money on apps, mp3s and epubs.



Click, Crack, Eat Lobster!

image

You knew someone had to do it.  So here it is, iLobster ($1.99) by Ben Greeley from up in the Waterville area here in Maine.  There is also a free version, so what is the difference?  Probably a 1/4 cup of melted butter and lobster juice down the front of your shirt.

How was it for you? ...On Angry Birds Day?

image

This is a rather belated post about what happened in various cities during Angry Birds Day 11thDec 2010.  And so it seems that Scandinavians, in this case, Rovio, the developers of Angry Birds who hail from Finland, are not great party organisers and therefore the world-wide turn-out was reportedly not fantastic. There were, of course, a small group of hardcore fans who did show up at gatherings in New York and Los Angeles dressed up as – what else – Angry Birds.



AZiO tries building a better bluetooth keyboard

image

Going head-to-head with Apple is a dicey situation, but apparently AZiO thinks they've found a niche for their Bluetooth keyboard.  Now that you can use BT keyboards with all iOS 4.x devices, you should consider adding one.  AZiO says on their website that the virtual keyboard may be fine for travel, but when you're using your iOS device at work or home you may want a full keyboard.  However, I could really use a portable keyboard when I travel.  Perhaps it's because when I'm at home, I do most of my typing on a MacBook Pro with a full-size wired USB keyboard.  But on the road, lately with just an iPad, an external keyboard would be great for typing articles and long emails.



Sonic Spinball released on App Store!!

image

SEGA has ported some great 16-bit titles from back in the day (see my Sonic and Shining Force reviews). Now you can play Sonic Spinball on iPhone, iPad or touch--a gorge fest of pinball-oriented levels from the Sonic series. The game features 4 levels, 3 bonus stages, and a hidden bonus round. When normal pinball just won't cut it, give Sonic a ...I just can't say it...



Tune faster with PolyTune!

image

If you play a gig in cold or changing weather, then you know what a pain tuning can be, especially when warming up. PolyTune saves mucho time, especially when you are in a hurry to get set up and start playing. Most chromatic tuners do a string at a time, but PolyTune uses the iPhone/iPad/iPod mic to tell it the frequency for all strings (from a single strum). It won't solve your tuning woes completely, but help you get them tweaked faster. Grab it here on the App store for 99 cents (limited time offer until midnight, Dec 19, 2010)!

O say can you Say What You See?

image

I really wanted to finish this latest game before I wrote my review, but at this pace, it may be next Christmas before that happens.  I pride myself in my movie trivia knowledge, something that can make me both interesting and annoying at parties.  But "Say What You See" has been a challenge!

 



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..."
