I'm not necessarily saying that you have to be "wild and free" to enjoy these iPad cases, but I would venture to say that unless you're the type that rides his bike, snowboards with your iPad in your bag or traverses dirt-covered trails, you might not find the cases featured in this week's Best Case Scenario of any interest to you.
This week, we've got a folio-style case from Timbuk2, two rugged, extremely protective cases from Otterbox and Gumdrop, and a cutesy pink case with Smart Technology from iFrogz.
iPhone gamers who grew up in the 1990s are in for a bit of a treat this evening. The three greatest things about the nineties were the X-men, bustling arcades, and the playing of X-men in bustling arcades. Tonight, the third of those three will be re-released on iOS in anticipation of the nationwide launch of the film X-men: First Class Friday night.
With all the crazy weather we’ve been having lately all across the country, you might want to think about upgrading from Apple’s pretty bare bones weather app to something with a little more umph to it. But where to start? The App Store is choked with weather apps, but the basics are pretty much a given. You want to know the temperature, what the weather will be like today, and a forecast into the near future.
Apple has finally made the iWork suite of applications available in universal format, meaning that they will now work for the iPhone and iPod touch, just as they did before with the iPad. With the most recent update, Apple didn't only bring support for the rest of the iOS devices, but they also added a new document manager, ability to change font style and size directly from the ruler, and a new Smart Zoom feature when viewing and editing data. You can also control your Keynote presentations from another iOS device using the Keynote Remote app. Let us take you on a walkthrough of the new features and show you exactly how they work.
Still skeptical that massively multiplayer online games can work on the iPhone? We're still pretty skeptical too. However, today we got at least one good reason to hold out hope for the mobile MMO genre. Gameloft announced today that it's WoW-alike Order and Chaos has made over $1 million in twenty days on the App Store.
We’d like to tear you away from the latest rumors and scuttlebutt surrounding the next iteration of the iPhone for just a moment in order to bring you an important public service announcement: Companies other than Apple are currently busy preparing their own next generation devices too. It’s a shocking, we know, but we swear it’s the truth. Take Nintendo, for example. Word has it that they’re in the middle of prototyping their next generation console gaming system. Given that a little over a year ago, Nintendo declared Apple “the enemy of the future”, will their next hardware offering be designed to take on Cupertino’s forays into the realm of gaming?
Videos of a new tablet game have been released showing a new game called Shadowgun running on a Tegra 2-based Android device. In short, the videos are borderline unbelievable as they display near-console quality graphics on a touchscreen tablet. The third-person shooter is likened by the developers to Gears of War and is said to eventually be coming to iOS as well.
iPhone and iPod touch users without an iPad have been watching enviously from the sidelines as tablet users have the fun of using Apple’s iWork apps -- until now. Apple has announced new updates to Pages, Numbers and Keynote for iOS that make them universal at last.
In an uncharacteristically open press release on Tuesday morning, Apple not only confirmed the appearance of CEO Steve Jobs for the WWDC 2011 keynote on Monday, June 6 but also outed iCloud and iOS 5 in addition to the release of Mac OS X Lion.
The Opera Mini web browser got a welcome update last week, bringing a new look and feel as well as long-awaited native iPad and Retina Display support -- which got us thinking, could be it good enough yet to take the place of Mobile Safari for your iOS web surfing?
