Gboard_1

Finally, an iOS keyboard that I've been wanting!  Gboard is Google's new app for the iPhone and iPad that lets you search web results, search emojis and GIFs without leaving the keyboard. It also brings glide typing (think, Swype) to iOS. I just downloaded it, and it's made me so happy. iPhone and iPad users, this might [...]

ourgroceries-1

I've been using Google Keep for the last year or so to keep track of my weekly grocery shopping list. This app was so much easier to use than my prior method of calling Jeanne to get the list before I'd go to the store each week. Writing items on paper is such a struggle [...]

tmbr-iphonecase

I'm happy with Android and haven't used an iPhone as my main phone for years. But dang it if these new leather and wood iPhone cases from tmbr. don't make me seriously think about switching back. These cases combine two of my favorite natural materials: wood and leather. They are available for the iPhone 6 [...]

I prefer Android OS to iOS, but I often flirt with the idea of going back to using an iPhone as my primary phone because iPhones get all the cool add-on accessories like the DxO camera and these cool corner bumper protectors from Corners4. Made in the USA from machined and cast aluminum, these bumpers [...]

batteryshare

I can't make up my mind if this app is cool, creepy or somewhere in between. Battery Share is an iOS app that will let you follow the battery status of your friend's phone and will send a notification to your device when their battery is about to die. I'm not sure what the real [...]

In the early days of PDAs (personal digital assistants), I remember daydreaming about a computer the size of a Palm Pilot with a color touch screen display that would plug into a docking station with a larger display, keyboard and mouse when I was at work or at home. That way I would only have [...]

I love leather.  Whenever I am strolling and shopping as a tourist, I always stop in leather shops.  So when I had the chance to spend some time with a Burkley Leather case for my brand new iPad Pro 9.7, I quickly volunteered.  A week later, I "woke up" and discovered I really wanted only a one night stand [...]

The iPad Pro has been off my radar, but I should probably be embarrassed to admit that I didn't even know that the iPad Pro had a special charging connector that doesn't require a cable. The Smart Connector is the closest Apple has come to wireless charging for a mobile device (I'm not counting the [...]

Ah, leather! Such a nice feel, and so easy on the eyes. I have always preferred it to the various synthetics. I especially like the finishes that are less polished and lend themselves to natural wear and "character building." Recently, Mujjo has expanded their line of cases to include Apple's newest iPhones, and they offered [...]

I normally use my new iPod Touch 6G just to have an iOS device to play around with and to test iOS accessories and associated apps for the Gadgeteer; thus, I do not keep a lot of files on my iPod. However, there are those in my family who do keep a lot of files [...]

vr-case

The popularity of virtual reality headsets is growing, while the physical size of these bulky accessories remains the same. However, that might be changing if this folding VR headset from Brando is any indication. This 3D headset is actually built into an iPhone case, so it's easy to use anytime you need a virtual reality [...]

I prefer earbuds to headphones because they are smaller and easier to carry around than a full-sized pair of earphones. While I like them better earphones, I know I'm not alone in having issues with earbuds falling out of my ears. If you're a fan of Apple's earpods which have come packaged with the iPhone, [...]

iPhones are renowned for offering plentiful applications, ease of use, and quality hardware. But whether you are a supporter or detractor of all things Apple there's one thing you have to admit: they charge way too much for memory. the 48 GB jump from 16 GB to 64 GB costs $100, or over $2 per GB; the next [...]

Although the battery life on phones has gotten better, there are times I still find the need to charge my iPhone on the fly. In general, I do not keep a charging case on my phone mainly because of the added weight and size. There is a company out there that not only makes a case [...]
