Twelve South just launched its new HiRise stand for Lightning connector iPhones and iPad minis, as well as the fifth generation iPod touch and seventh gen iPod nano. The aluminum stand holds your iPhone, iPad mini or iPod touch upright at an angle that's good for FaceTime chats and frees up some desk space, and you can leave most cases on, too. You can fit a fourth generation iPad on the HiRise, but it isn't stable with the larger form factor, so stick with Apple's smaller devices instead. The Lightning-compatible HiRise is priced at US$34.99.

It's error reporting tools make it easy to troubleshoot problem streams, too. nm-Cam is available as a free download at Apple's App Store.

Coppertino has released VOX 1.0, a free audio player for OS X that supports multiple audio formats not supported in iTunes, including FLAC, CUE, OGG Vorbis, WMA, Monkey's Audio, and Musepack. It also supports iTunes standard formats like MP3, AAC, AIFF, and Apple Lossless (ALAC), and it will read from your iTunes Library, meaning you can still use iTunes to manage your music if you want to. VOX was designed with a minimalist aesthetic, and it shows the album artwork for the currently playing song in the Dock. That's pretty cool. The app is free on the Mac App Store, and has an in-app purchase for Internet streaming radio. In-app purchase support for LastFM, SoundCloud, Spotify, and Pandora are planned.
