NetSpot Pro is a Mac utility that allows you to map your Wi-Fi network, identify the strong and weak zones in your coverage, see where competing networks or other radio signals might be interfering, and generally understand your network. It has a lot of features, and there's a video on the deal listing that shows more about how it works. It's regularly priced at $149, but through our deal it's just $19.
Did you know our developer bundles are usually the most popular deals on our TMO Deals site? It's true, and we have a Name Your Own Price bundle today designed to help you learn how to design iPS apps. Name Your Own Price deals allow you to literally name your own price. If you pay less than the average on this one, you'll get two of the items below. If you beat the average price, which is currently $10.94, you'll get four courses and hundreds of design assets, including:
- The Ultimate Collection Of Design Graphics From Creative VIP
- Assets For Simplifying The Web & Mobile Design Process
- Freebo Design Asset Bundle
- Mobile App Design From Scratch: Design Principles & UX
- iPhone App Interface Design For Beginners
- Learn Mobile First Web Design Using Bootstrap
- Build A Cross-Platform Mobile App Using PhoneGap
That's a lot of learning. And remember that 10 percent of your purchase price goes to one of three charities (your choice): Child's Play, World Wildlife Fund, or Creative Commons.
We have a killer giveaway through our friends at Stack Social. It's for the GoPro Hero4 camera, the newest GoPro model. It will film in 1080p at 120 fps, 2.7K at 50 fps, and 4K at 30 fps. Come on, that's incredible! It can capture 12 megapixel stills at 30 fps, has a more powerful processor than previous models, and is generally-speaking bad-ass. To register, all you have to do is sign up to receive email notifications of TMO deals. Easy. Plus, the winner will be picked on December 15th so that the GoPro Hero4 can be delivered by Christmas. Good luck!
With the holidays nigh, many of us will have new iOS devices in the house. If so, you may need new Lightning cables, too, and we have a deal on an Apple MFi-certified 10-foot Lightning cable. It's $18.99. It retails for $40, which is still inexpensive for a Lightning cable that long.
We have a great deal for you on HyperDrive, the device that allows you to turn your 13-inch MacBook Air's memory card slot into a microSD memory card. It's also available for a 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display. One of the things I like most about it is that when plugged in, it sits flush against your MacBook's body. It's a great way to expand your MacBook's storage because it supports any microSD, microSDHC, or microSDXC card up to 128GB. This deal includes an 8GB microSD card, and it normally retails for $40. Through our deal, it's $29.99, making it a great gift for you or a loved on.
We have a fun deal for you today on MiP, the smartphone-controlled robot. Using a free app from the App Store, you can control MiP right from your iPhone or iPad (Android users can use it, too—check the deal for compatible Android devices). MiP balances on two wheels, and it has seven modes: MiP, tracking, dance, roam, tricks, cage and stack. You can also direct him using gestures. Praise him, and he'll be your best friend. But if you push him over, he gets angry. Come on, that's cool! MiP retails for $100, but through our deal he's yours for $89.99.
Our friends at Stack Social have brought special pricing for the holidays for the Complete iOS Design Course with Sketch. It includes 30 hours of video tutorials that show you how to design iOS apps using Sketch design software. You'll learn how to use Sketch, tips on workflow, understanding the role of plugins, practice designing by mimicking popular icons and apps, and more. Normally our deal pricing on this bundle is $89 (retail is $499), but for a few more days you can get it for $49.
If you're active, clumsy, or both, you may need serious protection for your iPhone 6—today's deal will help you with that. It's called the iPhone 6 CS Slim Armor Bundle, and it starts with the Slim Armor CS hard case (gunmetal color). This case for your iPhone 6 uses a cushion of air for extra shock absorption, and is designed to have a slim footprint. The bundle also has the GLAS.tR SLIM screen protector and the LCD Cleaner Set for keeping it clean. Retail on this package is $85, but you can get it through our deal for $34.99.
Today's deal allows you to backup your contacts, photos, videos, calendar events and more on up to five mobile devices. The service is called iDrive, and it provides client-side 256-bit AES encryption with an optional user defined key. Better yet, you can backup from one device and restore to another—and that's a cross-platform feature. Backup from iOS and restore to Android or Windows Phone, and vice versa. Through our deal, this is a $10.
This is one of the coolest things I've ever seen: the Om/One Levitating Bluetooth Speaker. It's a speaker that's a globe and it levitates. Seriously. It levitates. It floats in mid-air while it plays music or acts as your speaker phone, or whatever. Magnets are frakking cool. Check out the video in the deal listing to see it in action. It connects to an audio source via Bluetooth, plus it levitates. Drop in Luke Skywalker with a helmet over this eyes, and you can have yourself a proper SciFi shindig. The Om/One Levitating Bluetooth Speaker ships in January for $199. Stack Social has it on preorder for $195—when your speaker levitates, you don't have to discount it much. But this week only it's $179.99. So check it out and start counting down the days until it ships.
