Video editing apps are a dime a dozen on the App Store these days, but how many of them actually make it easy and fun to do? The folks behind Lumify Movie Studio are one of the few, and for a limited time it's also free.
The persistent rumors of a cheaper iPhone refuse to die, threatening to eclipse even those of Apple's so-called "iPhone 5S" expected in mid-year. But the company may have to make some compromises to get there.
As the world waits to hear Apple's quarterly earnings report next week, there are rumblings that the company is cutting back on iPhone 5 part orders by nearly half. A sign of trouble in paradise or just business as usual following a busy holiday quarter and the rumored handset refresh that could arrive by mid-year? You be the judge after reading our weekend recap...
The Engage Bamboo has a lot to like. The snap-on case's silver plastic looks like metal. It adds very little bulk to your iPhone 5. The etched logo on the bottom-left is unobtrusive and its texture actually adds just the tiniest bit of grip.
When it's time to hit the town, sometimes there's no room in your fancy coat's pockets or your sequined clutch for a bulky wallet and your iPhone 5. Speck says its SmartFlex Card case can hold 3 cards, but we got 3 thick credit cards plus a slightly thinner driver's license in there, and the fit was snug but didn't stretch the case past its limits -- and the cards were still easy to remove, thanks to the thumb-sized hole opposite the in/out slot.
The RokShield v3 isn't just a case, it's the core of a mounting system: Rokform offers attachments from a tripod adapter ($29) to a suction mount ($49), and a sturdy bike mount ($69) to clips ($29) and a simple lanyard ($9). It all works with this burly, three-part case with optional screen protector.
Sometimes a silicone sleeve is all you need, and Moshi's Origo is one of our favorites. It adds very little bulk, but the honeycomb pattern on the inside is raised ever so slightly to give you a bit of extra shock protection, and the pattern is visible from the outside too.
If you're on the fence about covering the handsome aluminum back of your iPhone 5 with a case, Moshi's iGlaze Armour is a polycarbonate snap-on case with an aluminum back panel that mimics the look of a naked iPhone 5, in black on black, white with a silver backplate, or gray with a bronze backplate.
The Stashback case from Incipio isn't totally flat on the back; the bottom two-thirds or so bulge out a little. That's because there's a hidden compartment between the case and your phone that can hold up to 3 cards: ID and credit cards.
