iOS accessory

adata-imemory-flash-drive-ue710-1

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 [...]

PhotoFast CR-8800

So, it might seem with my last two posts that I may be running out of storage on my iOS devices. This is not exactly true, the fact is I just happen to run across these products at the same time and thought they were neat. But if you are running out of storage for [...]

Flash storage for your "i" devices can be hard to come by even though the iPhone and iPad have been around for years now. Recently I had a chance to review the PhotoFast Max Extreme, a 64 GB flash drive with USB and Lightning connections and it works great, but it is always neat to [...]

zagg-pocket-keyboard-4

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 [...]

Mophie Spacestation

Being an iPhone and iPad user over the past 4 years, the one thing that I have found is that I tend to run up against the file storage limitations of those devices. I especially find it an issue when trying to edit movies or music on the road. Mophie, a company we know at The [...]

I don't know about you, but I'm really sick of the whole selfie craze. No one wants to see image after image of your goofy looking duck face. But if you absolutely must use your phone to take pictures or videos of yourself, having a remote shutter button is a handy gadget for the selfie [...]

brando-i-flashdrive-5

Because we have three people who always get iPhone upgrades, we always buy the lowest storage capacity to keep our costs down.  That wasn't a problem before, because we mostly used our iPhones for calling, texting, emailing, and navigation.  We typically used our iPads for gaming, creating files, and other activities.  This upgrade, I've regretted [...]

microsoft-universal-portable-keyboard

Microsoft is offering some pretty cool looking Universal Mobile Keyboards that work with Apple, Android, and Windows smartphones and tablets.  The  cover protects the keyboard when not in use, and opening the cover wakes the keyboard - and closing it sleeps the keyboard, of course.  The cover detaches and has a built-in stand to support [...]

In an ever more-crowded field, PhoneSuit has released an interesting charger for iPhones, iPads and iPods. It's not a big brick to plug your official cable into, but a svelte little tube that connects directly to your device and provides about a full charge. I was sent two for review, in black and a deep [...]
