Mmm, delicious candy. The vibrant colors of these cases sent us into a sugar fiending frenzy. Though the cases might be too neon for some tastes, they are definitely the kind of protective covering your average tween could use when it comes to keeping that expensive piece of hardware perfectly intact. The case also includes a rubber lining that cushions the iPhone's glass backing, though that logo on the back is a little large for our tastes.
This translucent case brings us back to the days of the first iMac's Bondi blue shell, though the iPhone 4's black backing will mute the color a bit (that is, unless you're one of the lucky few sporting a white one). We also liked the flexibility of this polymer case, and the fact that it was easy to put on. It also gives the iPhone a bit of a grip, so if you're holding a ton of things in one hand, you'll still have a hold on your device. However, there were times when we couldn't tell if we were hitting the volume button or not because of the plastic overlay.
Each new iPhone has offered fresh and fantastical ways to improve your daily life, but the epic tag-team of the iPhone 4 and iOS 4 deliver the greatest set of tools and features to date. With the introduction of FaceTime video calls, multitasking, and the high resolution Retina display, the iPhone 4 has moved even further away from being just a powerful phone and web-surfing device. Now more than ever, the iPhone is a true lifestyle-enhancing accessory.
Between the built-in features and the hundreds of thousands of options in the App Store, not to mention a few key accessories, the iPhone 4 can be figuratively formed and changed to fit your daily needs, whether you’re planning your daily commute, knocking out items on your to-do list, or simply looking to try a new restaurant. With this wide-ranging versatility in mind, we’ve come up with 40 ways in which the iPhone 4 can improve--or help you break free from--your daily routine, whether you’re at home or work, or out enjoying the world around you.
You might not think much about the small applications you might download for your iOS devices that ask to "phone home" (i.e. send information from your device to some known or unknown source). But, new research done at Bucknell University by Eric Smith shows that sometimes applications would transmit data over the network in plain text, allowing network eavesdroppers to potentially steal critical information.
We speculated in this space before that Apple's heavy hand in the creation, design, and rollout of mobile ads in their iAds program would drive businesses away. If the whispering anonymous rumor mill is correct (and when are they ever wrong? HA!), it appears Adidas is lacing up their running shoes and fleeing the control freak nature of Cupertino.
Apple TV has arrived and is our latest new beloved gadget. New iPad cases are everywhere with either old school pen and paper to accompany it or a new school Bluetooth keyboard. And the iPhone 4 hits China's shores. All this and more inside this week's cavalcade of you-know-what just In Case You Missed It.
This week's tips will show you how to reverse some of the weird changes Apple made to iTunes 10, how to use Apple's 10W iPad power adapter more effectively, share the music on your iPhone at your friend's party, and how to delete files in File Sharing on your iPad.
Welcome to this week’s Game Time, where we’ll take a good hard look at everything the Universe has to offer, and what it means to be truly sentient. We always keep it interesting with iOS GAAAAAMETIME.
We can't think of a better way to start our morning than by hearing the news that a much needed and much anticipated update to Apple's free Remote App for iOS has finally been made available in the App Store. You may recall that a while back, we let you in on the fact that the first iteration of the Remote App was built by a single developer, which may well have attributed to why it's taken so darn long for an update to crop up. No matter whether the 2.0 version of the app was built by the same fellow or a million-strong code monkey army, we couldn't be happier to see this update make the scene.
