Into The Circle is Solid Sliding Fun!

image

Into The Circle (Free) is a ridiculously addictive, endless physics challenge that requires precise rhythm and proper vector throttling in order to advance to the ever higher levels. The freemium game is inspired by the sport of curling, and though I couldn't watch even five minutes of the real thing, it translates well to the hybrid platform-like application represented in this game. One try and I guarantee you will not want to stop trying to get into the circles.



Ztylus Metal: A Clever Camera Case

image

With a name like Ztylus, I was expecting a stylus, but instead Ztylus gave me the Ztylus Metal Camera Kit ($114.95) to try, which includes an iPhone case and 4-in-1 revolver lens. I came away impressed. 



Marshall Offers High Performance Headphones at a Reasonable Price

image

I'm a fan of Marshall amplifiers, so when I had the opportunity to try Marshall Headphones Model Major II ($119) I jumped at the chance. As you would expect from the leader in rockstar amps, sound is the primary focus and it shows. The headphones deliver full range without distortion and compete favorably with headphones priced twice as high. In fact, Marshall's previous generation products are currently on sale for half price which means you can pick up some great cans for $50!



The Stealthy Selfie Stick for Spies and Stars

image

Selfies are big and a selfie stick is the only way to get a good shot without your arm being in the way. Even Tom Hanks took an epic selfie with David Letterman, but to make it a nice photo, he used a selfie stick. Now some museums and events have banned selfie sticks, including Apple's own Worldwide Developers Conference. So if you're going to bring a selfie stick, you will want an ubtrusive stealthy model.



Life n Soul Offers an Affordable and Adorable Water Resistant Bluetooth Speaker Just in Time for Summer

image

I had the opportunity to try BM101 Mini Water Resistant Bluetooth Speaker ($24.99) from Life n Soul. It is a teeny tiny adorable speaker about the size of two dozen quarters, stacked on top of each other. When placed on its side, it almost looks like a jet engine. There are two small metal hooks on the side that you can attach a small lanyard to, for use on the go.



Monster 24K Headphones Bring a Head Full of Bling

image
 
If you are one of the elite few to score a gold Apple Watch, or if you gravitate towards the gold iPhones or iPads, then the Monster 24K headphones ($299.95) may be the perfect accessory to compliment your sense of style. Monster's 24K headphones are a sleek synthesis of a high performance, self-contained sound system, with decadent elegance and posh style. With their extremely flashy look, the 24K may not be for everyone, but for those looking to make a Kardashian-esque fashion statement with their headphones, these are a classy alternative.

Catalyst's Waterproof iPhone Case, Now Offering Superior Protection for the iPhone 6 Plus

image

The makers of my favorite waterproof iPhone case have finally come out with the Catalyst for the iPhone 6 Plus, and I continue to be tremendously impressed. They've taken a design that was already exceptional and tweaked it with subtle refinements producing an end product that happens to be what I would consider, the best waterproof case on the market. Not that there aren't other great waterproof cases available for the iPhone 6/6 Plus series, there certainly are. That's why it's even more of an accolade for me to state that the Catalyst case is perhaps the best of an increasingly crowded and competent waterproof case market.

The app was created by designer and developer Fabrizio Bianchi. In an interview with Wired, Bianchi says that “the process of creating a color scheme should be easy.”
