This week's Best Case Scenario is essentially part deux of last week's iPad 2 round up. We got a couple more cases in over the weekend from various manufacturers and have had a chance to try them out with our new tablet device. This week, we've got cases from Incipio, Targus and a very special case from Pad & Quill.
We're pretty sure that your children are enjoying your iOS devices as much as you. We're also certain that your iPad is probably covered in fingerprint smudges and your iPhone is the only thing that will distract ihre kinder from wailing out of boredom in the bread aisle at the grocery store. Well, there are a ton of apps that can keep your kids busy and distracted, while also engaging their minds and teaching them a thing or two about touchscreens and navigating mobile devices. Get 'em started early with these free apps available in the Mac and iTunes App Stores.
If there was a way to subscribe to developers games on iTunes, I would subscribe to these developers without batting my pretty eyelashes. These teams really innovate and entertain on a consistent basis.
Just like you'd do everything to prepare for a new member of the family, you should do the same for your precious new tablet, too. While the Smart Cover is definitely new and innovative, it's not enough to keep the entire chassis of the iPad 2 covered -- that's why you need a case. While there aren't a ton available just yet -- the iPad's only been available for less than a week -- companies like Xtreme Mac, BodyGuardz and Scosche already have cases ready for your new toy, and we've already reviewed 'em. Click through for a quick overview of some of the new cases, though keep in mind that they may not all be available yet.
It's here, it's in your hands, and if you're even more hardcore, you're probably surfing our website in mobile Safari on your iPad 2 right now. Doesn't it feel wonderful in your hands? Whether you're a second-generation adopter or this is the second iPad to join your family, there are still a few free apps out there you may not have considered. In this special edition of Free App Friday, we're got a couple of free apps you want to ensure are installed on your new toy.
Sometimes game devs spend time meticulously crafting characters with believable body structures. They go to expensive colleges, learn the intricacies of anatomy, study Phi--the whole kit and caboodle.
Other devs just bust out a couple of polygons and call it a day. Is it wrong of them for experimenting? In this week's GameTime, we'll take a look at everything from enormous noses to tiny wings, and other blown up characters that are blowing up the iTunes store.
With its arrival at Verizon, the iPhone 4 andset is still alive and kicking. If you've just recently adopted the phone into your own life, or are still looking for ways to shield your phone from harm while giving it a bit of personality, there's a case out there for you. This week, we're taking a look at the Scosche Kickback case, Mivizu hard rubber skin case and the Hard Candy. Plus, a case that transforms your iPhone 4 into a vintage cassette tape -- old school!
It was the week the iPad 2 ate every other tablet's lunch including some not even launched yet. Seriously, do they think the Xoom is so much better that people are going to shell out $300 more for it than 5 of the 6 iPad models out there? That either is going to have to be one heck of a tablet or one tall, tall glass of Apple Haterade. Join us on the flip as we once again drool, speculate, and inform, just in case ya were too dazzled and missed it.
Since this week is GDC, we thought that we'd do something a little more topical with today's Free App Friday. Whether you like two-dimensional RPG-style games, simple casual games on the iOS or engaging platformers, this year's GDC was chock full of FREE awesome titles. Check 'em out, play 'em, tell your friends, and maybe even get a little behind on work because there are too many wonderful games to play.
We actually shouldn't say that because saying that word is like muttering Beetlejuice three times in a row--something awful happens, like some writer somewhere is just stuck and may never finish their novel because you dared to utter that evil phrase. Hopefully these apps will get you out of your situation and into the zone--where words flow out of your fingers like water out of a hose. Free flowin'.
