Top Five iPhone Sleeves And Pouches

There are tens of thousands of different accessories available for the iPhone today. With so many different accessories to choose from, how do you know which ones are actually worth buying?

As someone who owns over 200 different iPhone accessories – take it from me, choosing the right accessories for your iPhone is never easy.

Perhaps you’ve decided that you want a sleeve or pouch to store your iPhone in. Sleeves and pouches are sometimes better than cases, because they’re typically light and fit the device well, making it easy to pick up and pull out.

Rather than looking through hundreds of different iPhone sleeves and pouches that are available on the market, we’ve decided to do the work for you. Here we have reviewed the five best iPhone sleeves and pouches available. [Read more...]

Everything You Need To Know About MFi Gaming Controllers

Logitech Powershell

Back in June, Apple announced something that could change the mobile gaming industry forever: a standard for iOS gaming controllers known as Made For iPhone (or MFi) for short.

With the controller support that came with iOS 7, users can now use controllers with physical buttons rather than being forced to use the cramped buttons on the iPhone or iPod’s touch screen.

Let’s look into it a bit further into how it works. As pictured above, you can see that the iPhone is plugged directly into the controller. While this is currently the standard, standalone controllers are also being made which connect to your iPhone or iPod Touch via BlueTooth.

Although we aren’t quite seeing them yet, MFi has huge advantages for both the consumer and the developer. Let’s break it down. [Read more...]

Mophie Juice Pack iPhone Case Review

Mophie Juice Pack

One of the biggest complaints about the iPhone is about its battery. The battery life of the iPhone isn’t as great as it could be. Worse of all, the iPhone doesn’t allow you to easily swap out batteries, meaning the only to recharge your phone is to plug it in and wait for it to charge.

Unfortunately, most people don’t carry chargers around with them. Not only is it a huge inconvenience, but the cords get tangled and lost inside your pocket or bag.

What if you didn’t have to deal with such an inconvenience? What if you could completely recharge your phone anywhere, without having to deal with those annoying cords? What if you could double your iPhone’s battery life with the flick of a switch?

It’s now possible with the Mophie Juice Pack iPhone Case.

Google Chromecast Brings Airplay Like Features To iOS For A Cheaper Price

If you’ve ever used an iPhone before, chances are you’ve seen the Airplay symbol. You know, the little button that lets you mirror what’s on your iPhone onto your Apple TV. Great. But what’s the problem with that, you may ask? You have to have an Apple TV for it to work, and not everybody has $100 to go shell out for one.

But now with Google’s new product, Chromecast, you no longer need an Apple TV to use this feature. Chromecast turns your iPhone (or Android) into a remote you can use to control what’s on your TV. You can use it to mirror web pages for a better viewing experience, or stream media (such as YouTube or Pandora) instantly. Not to mention, it’s a lot cheaper than the Apple TV at only $35.

What’s the real advantage over Airplay here, though? Google has also released a software development kit for integrating Chromecast with applications. Since so many developers are developing for both Android and iOS, they may favor integrating Chromecast over Airplay for their applications.

Although it won’t completely change iOS, the entire iPhone experience is sure to be improved with the addition of Chromecast. Will developers pick it up and really start utilizing it in their apps? We’ll have to wait and see.

iPad Smart Cover Review

Whenever Apple release a new product, it’s rare that they only stick to that one product.

Along with the iPad, you also have the option to purchase the “Smart Cover” case for it. This review is all about that Smart Cover.

Logitech Keyboard Cover Review (iPad)

Logitech Keyboard Cover

When I first got my iPad, one of its biggest drawbacks in my opinion was how hard it was to type on it. Being someone who can easily type 100 words a minute, I was a bit disappointed to realize that my typing speed had dropped significantly when trying to type on the iPad’s touch screen. Now for slower typers, this may not be such a problem, but for someone on me, who relies on the iPad to write some of these articles I provide for you here on iOSUniverse.com, trying to type on the iPad can be a real hassle. Or at least, it was a real hassle. That was, before I got the Logitech Keyboard Cover for my iPad.
