Dolphin Browser for iPhone Review
Apple's Safari browser may have finally met its match with Dolphin, a browser that not only does everything that Safari does, but adds a lot more besides.
Ringtone DJ iPhone Ringtone App Review
Free is always a nice price for an app, but sometimes free also means you get an app with some problems. That's the case with Ringtone DJ--a decent app marred by a few frustrating problems.
Ring.tones+ iPhone Ringtone App Review
Ring.tones+ is a new app that includes more than 100 ringtones for your iPhone. You’ll be impressed by the interface, but are the limited sounds enough to earn Ring.tones+ a spot on our list of the best iPhone ringtone apps?
Ringtone Converter iPhone Ringtone App Review
Ringtone Converter is an easy way to create unlimited ringtones for your iPhone. The interface is not the best I’ve seen, but the app is free, easy to use, and it gets the job done.

Songza Streaming Music App Review
Songza offers a large collection of curated streaming playlists--for free--matched to your mood and the time of day. What it doesn't offer, though, is a streaming infrastructure robust enough to deal with inconsistent bandwidth.
Band of the Day Music App Review
If you're looking to discover new music that you love, but feel overwhelmed by the huge number of places to look, Band of the Day--which introduces you to new music every day--is a great app.
Melodies for Google Music Pro App Review
If you're looking for a good iPhone app to listen to your Google Music library, you've found it with Melodies.
Reprise iPhone Music Player App Review
Reprise is an iPhone app that supplements the functionality of the main Music app: it just focuses on shuffling songs. It does it well, but is that enough to justify a purchase?
gMusic Google Music App Review
Google Music may be a competitor to iTunes, but that doesn't mean that the two can;t co-exist on your iPhone. And, with the gMusic app, you can have both easily.
Rdio for iPhone Review
Among the trio of major streaming music apps, Rdio stands taller than Spotify or MOG when it comes to user experience and music discovery, but is it a better app overall?
Wolfgang's Vault iPhone App Review
Wolfgang's Vault, a free iPhone app that offers access to thousands of classic and modern concert recordings seems like the perfect app for live music fans. It should be, but quality problems and unclear fees hold it back.
AOL Radio iPhone App Review
There are plenty of good options for listening to music on your iPhone, as evidenced by our list of the best free music apps. The AOL Radio app doesn’t do much to set itself apart from the competition, but it doesn’t include any dealbreakers either.
NPR Music iPhone Radio App Review
If you listen to NPR for its music content, you’ll undoubtedly be pleased with the NPR Music app. Those who like a lot of variety, however, should look elsewhere.
OutFront iPhone Running App Review
OutFront is a GPS iPhone app that tracks your time, distance, and pace for a variety of outdoor activities, including running, cycling, sailing, and many others. Since I’m a runner, I put the OutFront app to the test to see how it stacks up against favorites like RunMeter or RunKeeper Pro.
Adidas miCoach iPhone Running App Review
Running apps, which use the iPhone’s GPS to track your runs, are popping up all over the iTunes app store. You’ll pay between $5 and $10 for the best running apps, which is why I was eager to test out the Adidas miCoach app. Is this free app a good budget alternative to RunMeter or RunKeeper Pro?
C25K iPhone Running App Review
The C25K app is a great choice for new runners, as it combines an easy-to-follow beginner’s plan with GPS tracking capabilities. Although there are a few downsides to the GPS tracking, C25K is an easy-to-use app that will have you running a 5K in nine weeks.
Mophie Juice Pack Air Review
With its latest Juice Pack – the Juice Pack Air – Mophie has learned some lessons and delivered a much stronger product, one that should be considered by iPhone 3G and 3GS users with heavy battery demands.
Soaripod iPhone Stand Review
When watching video on an iPhone, lean their heads forward get a good view of the screen – and doing that for the length of a feature film is sure to put a crick in your neck. Papadakis Technologies aims to change this with the Soaripod, an iPhone stand that also includes a belt clip and adjustable arm designed to make watching video on your phone more comfortable.
Vuzix iWear AV920 Review
The 2.5-inch screen on the iPod video isn’t very large when compared to the flat-panel home theaters common in many houses these days. Is a small screen the price we pay for portable video? NO, says Vuzix, which makes personal video eyewear. Unfortunately, the Vuzix iWear AV920 has too many problems to be added to most people’s portable video kit.
Remote App Review
Remote is the first Apple-created program for the iPhone App Store, the iTunes-like store of third-party programs to expand the feature sets of devices running the iPhone 2.0 firmware. As a demonstration of what the App Store and iPhone 2.0 offer users, it’s great. As a program for everyday use, it’s also great.
Google Music Store Review
Into the digital music store marketplace comes Google, ready to challenge iTunes and Amazon? But does the search giant have anything new to offer?
iTunes WiFi Music Store Review - iTunes WiFi Store - Apple WiFi Music Store Review
The iTunes Wifi Music Store is Apple’s latest attempt to expand the use of versatility of its industry-leading iTunes Store -- and it’s pretty amazing.
Napster Music Store Review
In May 2008, Napster took a major step back into the digital music marketplace, though, with the launch of its MP3 store music download service, following in the footsteps of AmazonMP3 and the undisputed champion of the space, iTunes. Unfortunately, the Napster MP3 store doesn’t hold up against those competitors.
Napster MP3 Music Store Review - Napster Store Review - Music Download Services Review
In May 2008, Napster took a major step back into the digital music marketplace, though, with the launch of its MP3 store music download service, following in the footsteps of AmazonMP3 and the undisputed champion of the space, iTunes. Unfortunately, the Napster MP3 store doesn’t hold up against those competitors. Page 2.
AmazonMP3 Music Store Review
AmazonMP3 is Amazon.com’s music download store, an offering poised to become the chief rival, and a true competitor, to iTunes’ dominance in the digital download market.
Shure SE530 PTH Sound Isolating Earphone Review
The Shure SE530PHT Sound Isolating Earbuds crown the top-end of Shure’s product line of high-quality earbuds. It shows. The SE530s offer terrific sound quality, solid bass, a good fit, and noise isolation. They also offer a $549.99 price tag, but for true audiophiles, it will be more than worth it.
Shure SE310 Sound Isolating Earphone Review
The Shure SE310 Sound Isolating earphones are touted by the manufacturer as offering a new level of sound quality, comfort, and bass response for such small earphones. On two of those counts, they’re right: the SE310s sound great, provide a terrific noise isolation feature, and feel good, but their bass sound is disappointing.
Case Logic Silicone iPod touch Case Review
The Case Logic silicone iPod touch case two pack offers just about everything you’d want out of an iPod touch case: solid protection, grippable material, access to all key ports and buttons. If only it protected the screen, we’d have a 5-star review.
JBL Reference 610 Wireless iPod Headphones Review
It only makes sense that, in our increasingly wireless world, many iPod users will soon be using wireless iPod headphones. To that end, more and more wireless headphones are hitting the market, and JBL’s new Reference 610 Bluetooth wireless headphones, though I have a few quibbles with them, these are a great entry in this market.
Case Logic Pockets UNZ2 iPod Case Review
The Pockets UNZ2 iPod case is a budget-priced iPod case from Case Logic designed to work with most larger iPod models. But, just like Case Logic’s other Pockets models, it’s mostly designed to protect the iPod and prevents you from using the iPod while in the case.
Case Logic True Sport iPod nano Armband
When it comes to iPod cases, fit is a key attribute — both how well the case fits the you, but also how well the iPod fits inside the case. Unfortunately for the True Sport armband, it doesn’t secure the nano tightly enough, leading to accidental drops.
Case Logic iPod Classic Silicone Cases Review
Though iPod cases that lack clickwheel protection are still fairly common (though I think there’s no excuse for not protecting it), it’s rare to come across a case that doesn’t protect the iPod’s screen anymore. In the Case Logic iPod Classic Silicone Case we have both – a case that protects neither the clickwheel nor the screen.
Case Logic 3rd Generation iPod nano Silicone Cases Review
It’s always nice to get value for your money. Case Logic seems to be subscribing to the give ‘em value theory with its Silicone Cases 2 pack for the 3rd generation iPod nano since, as the name suggests, each package offers two nano cases sporting different styles for one price.
Case Logic Pockets UNP1 iPod Case Review
Case Logic’s Pockets UNP1 iPod case for the iPod nano is a stylish little affair with a number of drawbacks. It could be a hit with college students and other who take their iPods on short trips.
Case Logic Pockets UNP2 Review
Case Logic’s Pockets UNP2 iPod case is a stylish little affair with a number of drawbacks. Though it may not be a good fit for most users, it could be a hit with college students and other who take their iPods on short trips.
Mophie Radura case for iPod nano Review
The Mophie Radura case for the third-generation iPod nano is similar from a lot of other hard cases on the market, with one key difference: an opportunity for customization on the back of the case. That’s not enough to truly set the case apart from the pack, though.
XtremeMac MicroShield for iPod nano Review
The XtremeMac MicroShield iPod nano case does everything I look for out of a case: it protects the iPod, screen, and clickwheel, preserves clickwheel functionality, and generally looks good. So why only 3.5 stars? It’s really hard to get the iPod in and out of the case.
Incase Sport Armband for iPod nano Review
A good iPod sport case has light weight, good looks, ease of use, and a good fit. The Incase Sport Armband for iPod nano passes the test in the first three areas, but unfortunately doesn’t offer a good enough fit to hit a homerun.
Incase Neoprene Sleeve iPod Case Review
The Incase Neoprene Sleeve iPod Case is a very good iPod case that provides all the protection and options you’d want, but with one drawback that keeps it from being a five-star product.
Incase Slip Cover for iPod Review
Though you get more bang for your buck when you buy the Incase Slip Covers iPod nano case — two cases come in each package — the experience of using the cases is frustrating and doesn’t offset the value.
H2O Audio Waterproof iPod Case Review
If you’ve got a burning desire to take your entire music library with you underwater – whether that’s in the pool, the ocean, or just the bathtub – the H20 Audio waterproof iPod case for the iPod video is for you.
DLO VideoShell Special Edition iPod Video Case Review
The DLO VideoShell Special Edition will call to mind immediately, for those that have seen it, the Belkin Clear Acrylic and Brushed Metal Case for the iPod video. Not only does the DLO case look like Belkin’s, it offers the same features and is just as a good product.
DLO Shell for iPod nano Case Review
The DLO Shell for iPod nano is a hard plastic case that snaps around the second generation iPod nano. It’s a decent case, but doesn’t protect the Clickwheel and isn’t as well styled as other offers from DLO or competitors.
Core Cases Aluminum Slider for iPod nano Review
Core Cases’ Aluminum Slider for the third-generation iPod nano is a decent case undermined by a crucial flaw: The lack of clickwheel protection and a slight opening above the clickwheel allows debris and moisture into the case where it could cause problems.
Core Cases Aluminum Slider for iPod Classic Review
Core Cases’ Aluminum Slider iPod Classic case provides reasonable protection for the iPod, but loses marks from me for not protecting the clickwheel and for its somewhat plain styling.
DLO Action Jacket for iPod Shuffle Review
The iPod Shuffle is the only iPod model that has a clip on its back. As a result, it might seem that you wouldn’t need case to secure the Shuffle — designed for use during exercise — to your body. But a case is a big help, and the DLO Action Jacket for the iPod Shuffle is a great case.
Disney World Magic Guide iPhone Disney App Review
Disney World Magic Guide is a full-featured travel app that includes practically everything you’ll need for your next trip to Disney World. It may cost a bit more than other Disney apps, but Disney World Magic Guide brings a variety of features in a neat, easy-to-use package.
Used iPhone & iPod Trade In Reviews: BuyMyTronics
Of all the iPod trade-in companies I’ve used, BuyMyTronics is the only one whose President called me directly to deal with a problem with my sale.
WDW Radio iPhone Disney App Review
The WDW Radio app (Free) is one way to listen to Lou Mongello’s popular Disney podcast. The podcast itself is very well done, but the iPhone app could use a little refinement.
Review of iFunia DVD to iPod Converter
There are many programs to help consumers rip movies from DVDs and convert them to formats playable on the iPod or iPhone. Given the crowded market, new programs need something really special or different to stand out. DVD to iPod Converter from iFunia offers some features I haven’t seen in other DVD-to-iPod programs, but its core features aren’t strong enough to merit a top recommendation.
2nd Generation Apple iPod touch Review
If the second-generation iPod touch represents the future direction of much of the iPod line – and I believe it does – iPod lovers are in for a very pleasing future.
3rd Generation iPod nano Review
When Apple releases new iPod models, sometimes all they change is how much storage the model offers. Other times, all they change is everything. With the third-generation iPod nano, Apple changed everything and it’s a welcome change.
2nd Generation iPod Shuffle Review
The iPod Shuffle is unlike any other iPod. It doesn’t have a screen, a clickwheel, or the ability to play anything other than music. And that’s OK. The iPod Shuffle is a different kind of iPod for a different kind of user.
4th Generation iPod nano Reviews
The 4th-generation iPod nano returns the nano to its roots – it’s once again a tall, narrow iPod. The 3rd-generation model was a radical departure for the nano line, with its squat size and square screen, but the 4th-generation model is tall, with a rectangular screen and some exciting new features.
Apple TV Take 2 Review
The AppleTV Take 2 is Apple’s substantially upgraded version of the AppleTV. One of the key upgrades of this version of the device is support for iTunes Movie Rentals, including high-definition rentals. There is no hardware change in AppleTV Take 2 – all the changes were made in the software that runs the device.
Apple Airport Express Base Station Review
The Apple Airport Express is the perfect accessory for anyone who lives in more than one room and has an iTunes library. This little box is affordable and so easy to use that if you really enjoy music and want to streamline your home audio set up to include just a computer and speakers in various rooms (especially if you’ve got an iPod touch or iPhone), you pretty much need to have it.
Scosche freqOUT iPhone Car Kit Review
Scosche's freqOUT iPhone car kit offers impressive sound, so why isn't it our top pick in the category?
XtremeMac Airplay Boost iPod FM Transmitter
When visiting or traveling with an iPod, it’s not always easy to play your music through a stereo. Unless you’re near a speaker dock or a stereo with an iPod jack, you’re usually out of luck — sometimes even in the car. So, what’s an iPod owner to do? XtremeMac has one answer, in the form of its Airplay Boost FM Transmitter.
XtremeMac Tango Studio iPod Speakers Review
The first thing that catches your eye about XtremeMac’s Tango Studio iPod speakers is its looks. A small black rectangle with a blue digital readout seemingly hidden inside the speakers, the Tango Studio is an appealing package, especially when the display lights up. It’s not a perfect speaker system, but for its price, it offers solid quality.
Tannoy i30 iPod Speakers Review
If you like design, you’re going to like Tannoy’s i30 iPod speaker system. And rightly so: it’s sleek, small, black, and shiny. It’s the kind of product that inspires gadget lust in those prone to it. But that lust may be dimished a bit by a few shortcomings and a high price.
Belkin TuneBase FM iPod FM Transmitter Review
The Belkin TuneBase FM transmitter expands on the standard iPod FM transmitter feature-set by being built to work with the iPhone in GPS mode, not just playing music to your car stereo. Despite some solid features, unless GPS use is your primary need, its sibling, Belkin’s TuneCast Auto, is probably a better choice.
Griffin iTrip Auto iPod FM Transmitter Review
I’m not sure that the iPhone apps that accompany the recent vintage iPod FM transmitters are absolutely necessary to their function, but the two best transmitters I’ve tested in 2010 – the Belkin TuneCast Auto and the Griffin iTrip Auto – both have optional iPhone apps. While the TuneCast slightly edges out the iTrip Auto, the iTrip Auto is a very, very close second.
How to Download 1080p HD Movies from iTunes
Whatever kind of HDTV you've got, Apple now has HD content for it. But if you want higher-resolution 1080p movies, you've got to change some settings.
Surround Xi Portable iPod Speakers Review
Portable speakers are all about compromise – how much sound quality are you willing to trade to shed weight and size? What price are you willing to pay to pack all those features into a small package?
Can You Get Siri for Android or BlackBerry?
Siri is one of the most impressive features of cutting-edge iPhones so, naturally, people with other kins of smartphones are asking: can you get Siri for Android or BlackBerry?
mStation 2.1 Stereo Tower iPod Speaker Review
A review of mStation’s 2.1 Stereo Tower, a powerful--but large--speaker system for iPod and iPhone.
Logitech Pure-Fi Anywhere iPod Speaker Review
The Logitech Pure-Fi Anywhere portable iPod speaker system is a very good entry into the portable iPod speaker market. While it won’t have you considering dumping your home stereo system, if you need music on the road or in rooms where your stereo isn’t, consider it.
JBL On Stage 200iD iPod Speakers Review
If you’re looking for a small, high-quality iPod speaker dock that can you serve you well throughout the house, JBL may have just the thing for you in its On Stage 200iD speakers.
Why Are Some Files "Purchased" and Others "Protected"?
Eagle-eyed observers will notice that some songs they buy from iTunes are called protected, while others are referred to as purchased. What's the difference? Find out here.
JBL On Stage IIIp iPod Speaker Dock Review
JBL’s On Stage IIIp iPod speaker dock packs a lot into its small shape. But, due to unexceptional sound and a slightly high price, it’s not quite as distinguished as some of its features might lead one to expect.
Harman Kardon Go + Play Speakers Review
The Harmon Kardon Go + Play portable speaker system blends a lot of great features — high-quality speakers, an iPod charger and dock, a terrific remote, simultaneously retro and futuristic styling — into a compelling package. Though the price tag for that package may strike some as a little high, the Go + Play is another great product from Harman Kardon.
Slappa Rubber Sole iPad Case Review
How you feel about Slappa’s Rubber Sole iPad case will be determined by what you expect out of it. If you want something to protect the iPad in transit, the Rubber Sole is a decent, but flawed, case. If you want a case that can stay on your iPad all the time and protect it even when you’re using it, the Rubber Sole’s not for you.
Slappa HardBody iPad Case Review
Slappa’s HardBody iPad case is just about ready to replace a bag as my one carry-on when traveling by air. It’s not quite enough for long trips, or ones that require a lot of items, but this is a well-conceived and executed iPad case.
Waterfield Designs iPad Smart Case Review
WaterField Designs makes high-end, high-style cases for many products, now including the iPad. The iPad Smart Case includes the company’s attention to style and quality, but also suffers from some limitations and a high price.
Speck CandyShell iPad Case Review
Speak’s CandyShell will appeal to users looking for an iPad case that can protect their iPad while they’re using it. While the CandyShell doesn’t protect the iPad’s screen, it covers everything else ably.
Barnes & Noble Nook App for iPhone Review
Like the Kindle app, the Nook app for iPhone doesn't offer many perks, but it does provide a solid reading experience. It has one major flaw, though.
iLuv Silicone Case for iPhone 3G Review
One of the best things about the iPhone 3G is how much better it feels in your hand than its predecessor. Some iPhone 3G cases add bulk to the device and the phone loses its sleekness. Happily, that’s not the case with the iLuv Silicone Case for iPhone 3G.
XtremeMac TuffWrap for iPhone Review
When it comes to protecting your iPhone, a lot of iPhone cases — the good ones, at least — appear to be roughly the same. But, thanks to the inclusion of one really smart addition, the XtremeMac TuffWrap for iPhone stands out.
The Washington Post iPhone News App
The Washington Post just debuted a new iPhone app to highlight the paper's news coverage. We’ll take another look at this news app after they’ve worked out some of the kinks, but right now it doesn’t make our list of the best iPhone news apps.
Fox News iPhone App Review
The Fox News app wasn’t around when we wrote our review of the best iPhone news apps a few months ago. Now that the news organization has finally released an app, we take a look to see how it stacks up against other heavyweights like AP Mobile, CNN or The New York Times.
DLO Jam Jacket for iPhone Review
One of the first accessories I recommend that iPod owners buy is a case to protect their new toy. And despite the high-quality, scratch-resistant screen used in the iPhone, the same holds true for iPhone owners. A case just makes sense – whether it’s to make the phone easier to hold or prevent scratches to the back of the phone. And if you’re looking for a good, basic iPhone case, the DLO Jam Jacket for iPhone is a good bet.
iLuv Clear Hard Case for iPhone 3G Review
One of the more common complaints I have with the iPhone 3G cases I’ve been seeing lately is that they compromise the aesthetics of the phone. Many iPhone 3G cases add bulk to the phone, robbing users of the aesthetic pleasure of the phone and making it harder to slip in and out of pockets. That’s the key problem with iLuv’s Clear Hard Case for iPhone 3G.
Getting iTunes Support when Report a Problem Won't Work
Sometimes, problems with making purchases from the iTunes Store are so tricky or weird that you can’t follow the standard report a problem process for getting iTunes support.
Agent 18 EcoShield for iPhone 3G Case Review
Agent 18’s EcoShield for iPhone 3G case updates the company’s line of cases for the first-generation iPhone, and while it offers most of the benefits of that line, it also introduces a new drawback.
Apple iPhone 4 Bumper Case Review
I can’t help but be a little angry about Apple’s iPhone 4 Bumper case. It’s great to have had an iPhone 4 case to buy at the same time as the phone, but the price seems very high for what is, essentially, a very small amount of material, and it feels a bit like Apple is taking advantage of third-party cases not having been available in the Apple Store at launch.
ESPN Fantasy Football 2011 App Review
ESPN Fantasy Football '11 makes it easy for you to manage your fantasy football team from any iPhone or iPod touch--for free--meaning you can stay on top of your moves and your league practically anywhere.
Cycling 2010 iPhone Cycling App Review
The Tour de France is one of the most anticipated cycling events of the year, and the Cycling 2010 app will help you follow it in a unique way -- with “tweets” from some of the event’s top racers.
Versus Tour de France iPhone App Review
The official Versus Tour de France app may be pricey, but we’ve been loving the live Tour video. The app isn’t without its faults, however, so some may question whether the Versus app is worth the high price tag.
Yahoo Weather App for iPhone Review
Yahoo Weather is a simple, beautifully designed weather app for the average person. But does it provide enough information for everyday use?
Call Screen Maker iPhone App Review
The most common way that people customize their iPhones usually involves changing the device's wallpaper. Call Screen Maker on the other hand, though, allows a new layer of customization: the call screen.
iCandy Shelves & Skins iPhone Wallpaper App Review
More is not always better. In fact, better apps are created by making hard choices and sticking to them. Unfortunately, the developers of iCandy WPs didn't make those choices.
Display Block iPhone Wallpaper App Review
Everyone likes to customize the look of their iPhones, but no one likes to waste money. In that case, stay away from Display Block.
Triage Email App Review
Triage, a new email app for the iPhone, tries to make staying in control of your inbox a matter of just a few swipes. But is it powerful enough to solve your email crisis?
Chomp App Store Search App Review
Searching the App Store can sometimes be a frustrating experience due to the limits on the App Store's search tool. But a new app, Chomp, makes searching the store more effective.
Apple Cards App Review
Apple's Cards app probably won't please graphic designers, but people looking to send customized, quality greeting cards to friends and family will find a lot to like.
The Christmas List App Review
The Christmas List is an iPhone app that helps you keep track of what you've bought and spent for everyone on your holiday shopping list.
FingerFocus iPhone Photo App Review
FingerFocus takes the ability to make a photo with a blurred effect and depth of field away from high-end cameras and puts it in your pocket.
FX Photo Studio iPhone Photo App Review
FX Photo Studio is a powerful photo editing and manipulation program for the iOS. With nearly 200 built-in filters and nearly unlimited combinations of settings and tweaks, it offers users a comprehensive--and sometimes overwhelming--tool for editing their photos.
Getting iPods Under $100
With a tight economy, many people are watching the bottom line. One way to take the sting out of the belt tightening is with a nice new iPod. But that doesn’t mean you don’t want to watch your spending. With that in mind, here are some ways to get iPods under $100.
Shopping List iPhone Grocery App Review
Shopping List by Hensoft doesn’t have as many features as some other grocery list apps, but it does have an excellent interface that is stylish and easy to use. So is it a top pick?
Grocery IQ iPhone Grocery App Review
Grocery IQ is a full-featured grocery app that covers all the bases. It is easy to use and a great alternative to shopping apps that cost money. That’s why it tops our list of the best iPhone grocery list apps.
Voice Brief iPhone App Review
Voice Brief is an interesting new app that has the potential to be a busy professional’s best friend. It uses a unique text-to-voice process to read you the latest headlines, your current stock quotes, and even your Facebook or Twitter feeds. I put the app to the test to see if Voice Brief is worth a download.
1,500 Ringtones Unlimited iPhone Ringtone App Review
1,500 Ringtones Unlimited is worth a look if you don’t want to bother with creating your own ringtones from your existing music library. The app has a good selection of funny sounds, alarm tones, and caller ID ringtones, but you won’t find any popular songs here.
Tap Reef iPhone App Review
Tap Reef is a virtual underwater aquarium where you are tasked with caring for a variety of fish. It is impressive to look at -- especially for a free iPhone app -- but the game isn’t always very exciting.
The Cat in the Hat App Review
Oceanhouse Media’s The Cat in the Hat app recreates the classic Dr. Seuss book for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Simply put, iPhone users with kids should run -- don’t walk -- to iTunes to download this app. We cover more top picks on our article on the best iPhone apps for kids.
Awesome Note +ToDo iPhone App Review
Awesome Note +ToDo is one productivity app that will satisfy both your note-taking and to-do list needs. The app is packed with features, but how does it perform in the real world? The interface isn’t the easiest to use, but Awesome Note definitely exceeded my expectations once I learned my way around.
How to Force Quit Frozen iPhone Apps
The iPhone 3G is essentially a small computer and just like on larger computers, sometimes programs freeze and keep you from using the phone for anything else. In this situation, it’s easy to quit that program.
Textie Messaging iPhone SMS App Review
Textie Messaging is another option for texting from the iPod touch if you don’t like textPlus or TextFree Unlimited. Although it has some downsides compared to other texting apps, Textie Messaging does have a terrific interface that is a lot less cluttered than its competitors.
Brightkite Group Text iPhone SMS App Review
Brightkite’s Group Text app is one option for sending text messages if you don’t have a phone -- like on the iPod touch -- or if you easily exceed your text limits on the iPhone. Unlike other texting apps, Group Text doesn’t assign you a phone number, which puts it at a disadvantage against its competitors.
TextNow iPhone SMS App Review
TextNow is another free texting app that works with a variety of Apple products, including the iPhone and iPod touch. However, it’s really valuable for iPod touch users, who don’t have a phone and have no way to send text messages except for apps like this one. I put TextNow to the test against favorites like textPlus and TextFree Unlimited to see how it stacks up.
WebOut iPhone Browser App Review
iPhone users have more and more options when it comes to their mobile browsing experience. You can always use the iPhone’s Safari browser, but it has some downsides. WebOut is one alternative browser that offers a feature Safari lacks -- it can stream audio and video to an Apple TV. So how does it work?
TextPlus iPhone SMS App Review
TextPlus is one of the many texting apps available for the iPod touch. Although it’s especially valuable for the iTouch, which doesn’t include a phone, even iPhone users can benefit from the free texting features. I put TextPlus to the test to see how it compares to other free texting apps.

The features, hardware, and changes introduced with Apple’s 4th-generation iPod touch, which debuted in Sept. 2010.
SkyFire iPhone Flash Browser App Review
The SkyFire Web Browser bills itself as the first iPhone browser that can play Flash videos. The app is so popular that it “sold out” within hours of its launch because the developer's servers couldn't keep up. I gave it a whirl to see if all the buzz is warranted.
There Is No Such Thing as an iTouch
If you listen to the discussion online or out loud about iPods, you’re bound to hear someone refer to the “iTouch.” But there’s no such thing as an iTouch.
Consumer Reports Mobile Shopper App Review
Consumer Reports is one of the best sources for independent and unbiased testing on a variety of products. That’s why I was so excited to see that the nonprofit organization finally launched an iPhone app, the Consumer Reports Mobile Shopper. Unfortunately, the app isn't a total success
Groupon Mobile iPhone Shopping App Review
The Groupon app uses the power of group purchasing to help individuals obtain excellent deals on everything from cooking classes to laser hair removal. It’s only available in select cities, but the Groupon app is a fun and worthy app to add to your iPhone.
Shopping.com iPhone App Review
Shopping.com is a very simple free app that is designed to compare prices for a variety of consumer products. I was willing to forgive the lack of many nice-to-have features, but the app isn’t very good at price comparisons either, which is pretty unforgivable.
Jacob's Shapes iPhone App for Kids Review
Jacob’s Shapes is a cute iPhone app for kids. Designed for toddlers, this app uses various puzzles to help your kids learn shapes and objects. With a well-designed interface and easy-to-use menu, Jacob’s Shapes is a good choice for any parent who wants their kids to learn something while they play on the iPhone.
Disney World Park Hours iPhone App Review
There’s nothing worse than getting to Disney World and discovering that you had the schedule all wrong. You can make sure you get to the park as soon as it opens and show up on time to your favorite event with the Walt Disney World Park Hours app. This app has a very simple task and it accomplishes it well -- keeping you updated on what’s going on at Walt Disney World.
GoodGuide iPhone Shopping App Review
Most iPhone shopping apps are designed to help you find a good deal and save some money. That’s a worthy goal to be sure, but the GoodGuide app is unique -- it helps you identify products and companies that are “safe, healthy and sustainable.”
iMapMyRun+ iPhone Running App Review
iMapMyRun+ is one of many iPhone apps that uses the phone’s built-in GPS to track your runs. While it has a number of things going for it, iMapMyRun+ is a little more finicky than other running apps we’ve tested. The numbers on the interface could be larger to make it easier to read while running.
Runner iPhone Running App Review
iPhone running apps like Runner are one option for tracking your pace and distance while you work out. These apps can be a good option if you don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars on a GPS running watch, but they have their own limitations as well.
TigerText iPhone SMS App Review
The Tiger Text iPhone app has a very simple premise -- don’t let your text messages come back to haunt you. Unlike most text messaging services, TigerText lets you control how long a text will be stored on your recipient’s phone.
Foursquare iPhone App Review
Foursquare is a social-networking app that helps users connect with friends and find new things to do in their hometowns. Even though the Foursquare app receives a ton of buzz, it’s only as good as the people who contribute to it. In smaller cities, the app just doesn't have enough users to be worthwhile.
RunKeeper Pro iPhone Running App Review
RunKeeper Pro ($9.99) is one of the most popular fitness downloads for the iPhone, and it’s easily the best running app available. By using the iPhone’s built-in GPS, RunKeeper Pro can track your pace, distance, time, and calories for each run. It's easy to use and very accurate, making it a must-download for any serious runner.

Pro Baseball Live! iPhone App Review
There’s a huge market for iPhone baseball apps. At last count, the iTunes app store features nearly 500 apps related to baseball. As a result, competition is pretty fierce. Pro Baseball Live! does a lot of things well, but MLB.com At Bat Lite is a better option if you’re in the market for a free baseball app.
ESPN 2010 FIFA World Cup iPhone App Review
The 2010 World Cup is just around the corner, so now’s the time to download the best World Cup apps to your iPhone. One of the most popular options for the upcoming tournament is ESPN’s 2010 FIFA World Cup app, which includes soccer news, player profiles, and live audio.
Comixology iPhone App Review
Comixology’s Comics app is just one option for viewing and downloading comics on your iPhone or iPad. With 80 free comics included in the app, Comics has the potential to be a great download, but it’s let down by its sluggish performance.
IDW Comics iPhone App Review
The IDW Comics iPhone app is a great choice for reading comics on the go. With an excellent reading experience and an easy-to-navigate interface, IDW Comics makes reading a joy. There is a glitch that happens when you download paid comics, but that’s one of the only downsides.
Panelfly Comics iPhone App Review
Panelfly has one of the best interfaces of any comic app we’ve tested, but some annoying crashes force us to downgrade its rating. Once Panelfly adds more comic publishers and fixes their stability issues, this app will be among the best -- if not the best.
Environmental Working Group Sunscreen Guide App Review
Before you slather on that sunscreen, you may want to check out what ingredients you’re applying to your body. The Environmental Working Group (EWG) conducts an annual sunscreen review, highlighting products that contain questionable or potentially harmful ingredients. The Sunscreen Buyer’s Guide app is a fantastic resource for anyone who is concerned about chemicals in personal care products.

Martha's Everyday Food iPhone Recipe App Review
Martha Stewart is one of many celebrity chefs with her own iPhone recipe app (others include Jamie Oliver, Mark Bittman, and others). Martha Stewart’s app includes “thousands” of recipes from her magazine, Everyday Food, along with some standout features. Unfortunately, it also crashes easily.
Tyler Florence Fast iPhone Recipe App Review
If you are a fan of the celebrity chef Tyler Florence, chances are you might have heard that he has his own app, Tyler Florence Fast. The app contains more than 500 of Tyler Florence's recipes, in addition to several cool features like a cooking timer and an ‘Ask a Chef’ email service.
AllRecipes.com Dinner Spinner iPhone Recipe App Review
AllRecipes.com puts a fun spin on the traditional iPhone recipe app -- and I mean that literally. Instead of searching by keyword or category, the AllRecipes app uses a virtual spinner to help you find new recipes. It’s a neat idea that is well executed, but the app lacks some features you may want in a recipe app.
iPhone 5S Specs and Features

Ita To-Do App Review
When is a to-do list app not a to-do list app? When it's Ita, an app that's more focused on lists and whose confused messaging detracts from its strengths.
Clear To Do List App Review
Perhaps more than any other to-do list app I've used, Clear is optimized for the iPhone. Plus, it's beautiful. But it's not going to be my to-do list of choice.
Todoist To Do App Review
Todoist is another entry into the increasingly crowded iPhone to-do list app space, but its advanced features and elegant interface make it a top contender.
Orchestra iPhone To Do App Review
Orchestra is a to-do app for the iPhone that excels at sharing tasks among groups and almost certainly will find passionate fans among creative organizations and businesses. But with its lack of some common features--like specific due dates for tasks--can it meet the average individual's needs?
Thinglist App Review
If all you need is a simple list-making app, Thinglist may be for you. But if you need even a small amount of functionality, it may prove too frustrating.

A review of Apple's flagship iPhone model for 2013/2014, the iPhone 5S.

iPhone 5 Review
Some people were disappointed that the iPhone 5 didn't offer any truly revolutionary features. But they shouldn't have been. The iPhone 5 is a major upgrade and an amazingly good phone.
iPhone 3G Review
Looking at the iPhone 3G, perhaps you wouldn’t think it’s too different from its predecessor. But looks can be deceiving. And in the case of the iPhone 3G, they’re very deceiving indeed: the iPhone 3G is a big jump past the first-generation iPhone. Page 2.
First-Generation iPhone Review
The iPhone is perhaps the most-hyped technology product in history. From its announcement in January to its release in June, the iPhone has been a constant source of conversation, speculation, and writing. So when the iPhone’s release came, the expectations were practically crushing. It says a lot about how good the iPhone is that the device isn’t a disappointment. In fact, the iPhone is, more or less, a joy to use.
iPhone 3GS Review
There’s really no arguing: the iPhone 3GS is the best iPhone ever If you’re not yet an iPhone user, it’s the most compelling reason yet to switch. But not all of the phone’s promise is yet fulfilled. That’s not entirely Apple’s fault, but that needs to change before the phone can be judged close to perfect.
iPhone 3GS Review - Apple iPhone 3GS - iPhone 3G S Review
There’s really no arguing: the iPhone 3GS is the best iPhone ever If you’re not yet an iPhone user, it’s the most compelling reason yet to switch. But not all of the phone’s promise is yet fulfilled. That’s not entirely Apple’s fault, but that needs to change before the phone can be judged close to perfect. Page 2.
iPhone 3G Review
Looking at the iPhone 3G, perhaps you wouldn’t think it’s too different from its predecessor. But looks can be deceiving. And in the case of the iPhone 3G, they’re very deceiving indeed: the iPhone 3G is a big jump past the first-generation iPhone.
Monster iCarPlay 800 Wireless iPhone FM Transmitter Review
