The Icon charging unit for iPhone

We've covered a number of iPhone portable chargers in the past, ranging from the well-known Mophie Juice Pack to the environmentally friendly iCharge Dx.

Appropriately, it's called the Icon.  Read More

Gone are the days when we simply used our mobile phones for calling people – now we can conduct our own ECGs.

The iBGStar plug-in glucose meter

With the number of apps in Apple’s App Store standing at more than 250,000 it’s no surprise that there are a number of diabetes-related apps amongst them. Such apps require users to manually enter information such as glucose numbers, carbohydrate consumption, insulin dosages and activities to allow diabetics to better control the disease. A new plug-in attachment for the iPhone and iPod touch called the iBGStar takes things one step further by incorporating a blood glucose meter that allows users to view and analyze readings in ‘real time’.  Read More

Apple's Case Program ends in its current form on September 30

This July, following the torrent of bad press surrounding the iPhone 4’s antenna issues, Apple implemented its Case Program, which provided a free Apple Bumper, (including a refund if one had already been purchased), or a choice of case from a number of third-party suppliers. The company also applied a no restocking fee return policy for dissatisfied customers. Apple has now announced that after September 30, it will continue to offer only the Bumper case for free through AppleCare and the no restocking fee policy will end.  Read More

 Nuu Mini Key gives iPhone 4 a slide out keyboard

The Nuu Mini Key offers potential salvation for iPhone lovers with fat fingers who would like an alternative to the screen keyboard so they can increase their typing and hence input speeds. A non-working prototype mistaken for a working one appears to have given the product a bad name it probably doesn't deserve. Tactile keys will hopefully enable some of us to touch type a lot faster than the current screen keyboard.  Read More

Apple has relaxed development tool restrictions, opening the doors to native Flash and AdM...

Apple has caused a lot of confusion for iPhone app developers by banning them from creating apps using any compiler not created by Apple, but then approving apps that break this rule – even going so far as to promote them in the App Store. Finally it looks like Apple has seen the light (and presumably the benefits) and announced that it has relaxed restrictions on its iOS developer license, opening the doors to native Flash and AdMob applications – as long as the resulting apps do not download any code.  Read More

Panasonic's '3D VIERA AR Greeting' iPhone app

While augmented reality still hasn't quite lived up to the initial hype (at least in terms of practical applications), it's still a great source of eye candy and geeky fun, especially in Japan. Panasonic is the latest company to jump on the AR bandwagon, as they recently released an iPhone app called '3D VIERA AR Greeting' that uses augmented reality to promote the new 3D VIERA TVs.  Read More
