For all those conflicted souls who say the iPhone is a piece of art that should not be covered by a case, but who wish they could really protect their gear, the AL13 aluminum bumper will allow them to have their cake and eat it too.
You've heard about the phablets, notably the Samsung Galaxy Note II with a 5.5 inch display, running Android. Unfortunately, not all of the writing about the device, and phablets in general, has been phabulous. Here is an in-depth, no holds barred, technical analysis and detailed review of the Galaxy Note II by John Martellaro. It may not be what you were expecting.
Everyone who's into theatrical movies knows the drill: what do I want to see next? What have I already seen? What's available now in theaters? iTunes? What's coming out soon? Let's view the trailer. And so on. ToDoMovies is an iPhone app that manages all that beautifully, and it's a must for movie fans.
We hope you never need the apps Vern Seward looks at this week in Free on iTunes, but you'll be glad to have one if you are ever involved in an auto accident. Car Accident Report, Car Accident Sidekick, and Accident Wizard. Check it out.
Hang your iPad on an exercise bike, a microphone, a camera tripod, in your garage, or under your car while you work on it. Where is up to you. How is built into the Monkey Kit.
Like shooting videos, but hate making movies with them? Vern Seward offers up three quick movie makers for iPhone or iPad that may fit the bill in this week's Free on iTunes. Perfect Video Lite, Drop n Roll, and Takes.
Satellite Safari is a realtime, visual guide to hundreds of satellites in orbit. This universal iOS app will tell when they pass overhead and where they are right now. You can follow along in orbit, with the satellite, see what it looks like, look at the ground track or watch it pass overhead from your location on the ground. It's also the official app for the Kickstarter SkyCube mission.
The MXL AC-406 Professional Series USB desktop speakerphone functions as a high quality speaker phone for web conferencing and as a speaker for playing music from your desktop in between those calls.
Those who want to charge an iPhone and an iPad, on the go, at the same time with one charger should check out the Gum Max Duo from Just Mobile. It does both and fits in most pockets.
Are you a man? Then you'll want to take a look as the apps Vern Seward has lined up in this week's Free on iTunes. iPedia Wiki, Uncrate, and WhatKnot.
