RadarScope obtains the raw NEXRAD radar data from the 159 National Weather Service Doppler radars, some in super resolution, around the U.S. and displays severe weather patterns on your iOS device. In addition, it displays predicted storm tracks plus severe weather and flash flood text warnings from the NWS. The visual presentation is just amazing.
Google has released Maps 2.0 for iOS with special emphasis on a new design for iPad. It's faster, has more personalized options, and makes better use of the display.
The Hone device, small and key-sized, placed on your keyring, in conjunction with the iOS app and an iPhone or iPad will allow even the most absent-minded to track down their keys within a 160 foot range. It's simple to use and reliable.

The ISO in-ear, active noise canceling Bluetooth stereo headphones from Antec Mobile Products weigh 24 grams, including the control unit. It includes a lapel clip, internal Lithium-ion battery and charging cable. While the sound is crisp, the noise cancellation is less than spectacular.
The BtX350 wireless compact bluetooth stereo speaker provides rich, full-bodied sound, strong bass and wirelessly streams via Bluetooth or connects to non-wireless items, such as iPods, with a standard 3.5mm plug. The addition of easy to reach operational buttons, makes this a useful speaker.
The GripBase Podium from Newer Technology is a light weight, heavy duty iPad stand that adjusts to almost five feet high, rotates 360 degrees, tilts and swivels, and provides a protective case for iPad, 2, 3, and 4 with options to acquire the case for the original iPad or the iPad mini.
AltaMail from Eurosmartz just got an update, and it's a big one. The "alternative iOS email client" market is exploding right now, but thus far I haven't found anything like AltaMail. This is a pro-level mail client for iOS tailor-made for email geeks who need to do more than the built-in Mail.app will let them.
The AluCup from Just Mobile is another inventive product from a company that provides convenience for the users of Apple’s many iOS devices. In this case, it is a small holder that works in different ways with all the iPhones, iPod touches and iPads.
X-Doria’s Dash Folio case for the iPad mini is a nice, modest case for everyday use. It protects your mini, looks good, is easy to use and is reasonably priced. It does everything a basic case should do.
