UrbanArmorAviator - 9

Ah, the quandry of cases. Designers keep making phones and tablets thinner and lighter, and it sometimes seems that case manufacturers seek to make up for this by making cases stiffer, heavier, and bulkier. With my currently active phone, I started out without a case. It was the first phone I didn't immediately entomb in [...]

ONANOFF-Sound-Cover-6.jpg

I was excited to receive this sample to review from ONANOFF. Being a music aficionado and an avid iPad Air 1 user, I was stoked when I read the company’s description and claim that this flat panel speaker/case, would improve the sound of my iPad Air by 400%. As you can imagine, I was a [...]

red-stripe-app

Well, it doesn't actually distinguish red from green, but it does indicate the amount of redness in red, orange, and purple objects by a series of stripes superimposed over the object.  The Red Stripe app uses the device's camera to view the objects in question and overlays stripes on those objects with a red component.

I am a huge advocate for the use of screen protectors. I have been a fan since the beginning; starting with those overpriced, thin sheets of plastics to the messy liquid applied protectors to tempered glass and now engineered systems to keep your smart device's round-edged screen safe and protected. The engineers at Bodyguardz have [...]

The camera on my iPhone 6 Plus is okay, but it's no where as good as my Nikon D5100 DSLR.  The camera on my iPad is no where near as good as the camera on my iPhone.  Sometimes you have to use the camera you have with you, and often that's not the Nikon because it's [...]

Good protection for your smartphone can be difficult to find, depending on your criteria. Some folks go more for style, some for protection and some for a combination or for other factors. The bumper style has been popular for few years now, and X-Doria now produces two "bumper" style cases that offer both style and protection. The [...]

The onscreen keyboards on our mobile devices work great, but for those of us who are touch typists or those who prefer the feel of physical keys when they need to do a lot of writing, a Bluetooth keyboard is obviously the way to go. The latest keyboard that I’ve had the opportunity to test [...]

Dog&Bone Wetsuit-1

I think I have written enough here on The Gadgeteer about my obsessive need to keep my iPhone (previously 5 now 6) protected while I travel. I have done this to the detriment of my wallet at times, with such cases as the Incipio Atlas and the OtterBox Defender. Although both cases were fine, they [...]

scosche-flatout

I don't know about you, but I like to have a status LED on my gadgets that lets me know when they are fully charged so I don't have to manually turn them on to check the battery level. Most of the Android smartphones that I've owned have this feature, but Apple's iPhones and iPads [...]
