It seems that recently stylus options for use with the iPad has been somewhat stagnant. It’s not so much that people are not using them, it just appears that there haven’t been many new entries into this accessory category. One of the best stylus options I have tried over the past few years is the TruGlide Stylus by LYNKtec and they’ve just released a new version called the TruGlide Pro. The TruGlide Pro takes all the great things about the original and improves them… (more…)
One of things I’ve found I use more than I had been until recently is headphones. I typically have a pair of earbuds with me in my pocket, but when I sit down at the computer to listen to podcasts or music late at night, I now reach for my Harman Kardon Bluetooth over-the-ear headphones. I used to leave them on my desk, but I’m a neat-freak, so that had to stop as it was just too cluttered. So into the drawer they went. Hidden. Forgotten. Unused.
Until Now. (more…)
I recently reviewed the Germanmade iPhone 5 Dock, and it really is a symbol of the dedication and quality put into the accessories they sell. The iPad mini sleeve is a continuation of that symbol and for users looking to take the iPad mini with them, but not keep it in a case, this is a winner. (more…)
There are a few names in iOS and Mac accessories that stand out, simply because their attention to detail and high quality make them appear to be Apple-created products at times. One of these companies is Just Mobile. I’ve used many of their products over the last few years, and recently was asked to look at a few of their more recent additions. So over the next week or so I’ll be talking about Just Mobile and their accessories…I’m very excited!
The first item is the AluCup. (more…)
There are plenty of people who have made iPad stands out of wood, plate holders, paper copy holders, and more. Some of them work well and others not so much. I’ve seen plenty of people creating their own stands and sell them, and I’ve checked out a few. I was recently asked if I would look at a particular wooden stand that has been handmade in a personal shop using natural hardwoods. The builder, Brandon Rotz, was gracious enough to send me two stands to try out. (more…)
I recently talked about how much I loved the Touchfire for keying on the iPad. I truly think it’s a remarkable accessory. That said, that doesn’t mean that Bluetooth Keyboard Cases are no longer a great option too. They are. They have a ton of uses. The latest I’m looking at comes from The Snugg, and while it’s not the top of the line, it didn’t perform too bad at all. (more…)
We all know that keying on the iPad isn’t the ideal situation. Some find it easier than others. For those who have difficulty there have been a variety of solutions available to help; keyboard cases with keyboards built-in, clamshell cases that turn the iPad into a laptop of sorts, and even the simple use of a regular Bluetooth keyboard. Now there is an interesting solution that I personally find brilliant, and that is Touchfire. (more…)
When unboxing the Aura for the iPad mini and snapping the device into place, the first thing one really notices about the case is how classy it is…with a beautiful brushed metallic look. This textured nylon is not only stylish but durable and moisture resistant too, leaving users with a comfortable and secure grip on the device. (more…)
One of the biggest joys of owning an iPad mini is the sleekness of the device. That doesn’t mean there isn’t a need for a case however, as we all use our devices differently. Some people don’t need a case as they generally use the device on the couch or bed for reading. In this situation leaving the iPad mini naked is just fine for most. However, if you take your device with you everywhere, in a bag or purse, perhaps you want to protect it while traveling. Perhaps you like watching video while in bed with the device on the nightstand. In this instance, a case that props up the device is a great addition. So there are plenty of uses that require people to house their device in a case of some kind.
Today I’m looking at the Domeo Recliner Mini Folio. How is it? In short, I’ve been impressed. (more…)
Sometimes a product comes to my door that I simply didn’t understand until it arrived. The Tri-Lounge Lap Desk by Domeo is exactly this type of product.
It looks like a very tough and solid wedge pillow, but it’s actually so much more than that. It’s an entertainment center for the iPad essentially, and I have to admit….I kind of like it!
