Beta Evernote 5 on the Mac was a good indicator that the team was working on a new version for iOS users, and now only a few days later, we have it. Evernote 5 for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch is redesigned and released with major functions added, home screen sections, Quick Notes, and Views.
While most of us these days have smartphones that make the idea of a portable media player irrelevant, some consumers like to keep their phone and music/video experiences separately. Some of us also have company phones that they don’t want to do browsing from, or simply have kids that could benefit from a media player that can also browse the net and use apps.
Yes, I suppose you could rely on meteorologists to give you a weather report, but they’re not taking readings outside of your house and they certainly aren’t giving you real-time data about the inside of your house.
Imagine if you could have an iPhone with 4G and no monthly required contracts and a low monthly price tag. The new FreedomPop iPod touch case does just that, adding 4G to your iPod Touch which therefore allows it an always-on connection for browsing the net and even making calls through programs such as Skype.
The app will run on any iPhone, iPad or iPod that uses iOS 5, and you will have to buy a $9.99 dongle which should be connected to your DSLR by cable or infrared. Connect the dongle to your iDevice and then you can simply use your device’s sensors as triggers (motion, facial recognition and more).
Annoying co-workers and unmanageable older brothers causing trouble in your life? Help has finally arrived, provided you own an iPhone 4S/4/3GS, or iPad/iPad2 or iPod touch (or all if you are rich and a bit crazy about all things ‘i’). The iLaunch Rocket Launcher is a weapons system which will allow you to rain darts on those who intrude your personal space and it can be controlled with your iDevice.
It’s time you threw away your dumb walkie-talkie style baby monitor and try the “smart” way of keeping an eye on your little ones. The Smart Baby Monitor from French company Withings will allow you to check on your baby through your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. The sensor-packed web cam was released in the UK last year and now US citizens can finally get their hands on it.
Apple has something in store for you so there is no need to worry. On Tuesday, the company unveiled one of its newest apps, Cards during a media event. Cards is an official Apple product that lets you send greeting cards to your relatives and loved ones all around the world.
RaisooPeel.net has just recently rolled out a new product, called Raisoo Peel, which transforms an iPod into an iPhone. It is a third generation device from the Yosion Peel 520 II which was released in March. The Raisoo Peel has two versions, the T3 designed for 2nd and 3rd generation iPods and T4 for 4th generation iPods. They both cost $109.
Not everyone needs the “phone” part of a smartphone and that’s why devices like the iPod touch exist. What if you’d prefer to align yourself with the Google side? Sony is doing just that by releasing the company’s first ever Android-powered Walkman media player. Here is the Sony NW-Z1000.
The first generation Apple Peel 520 left something to be desired, but it looks like Yosion is ready to give its iPod Touch-converting case another chance.
An Apple iPhone with the phone module ripped out is basically an iPod touch. So, what happens when you take the Samsung Galaxy S and remove the phone part out of that? Apparently, it’s the up and coming Galaxy Player.
Our rampant consumerism isn’t exactly having a positive effect on poor Mother Nature. We could talk about using biofuels for our cars and solar panels for our homes, but what about something as small as a protective case? Covering this smaller but relatively important realm is Bioserie, with a new line of iPod touch 4G […]
Applidium, the company behind that fantastic VLC media player that was recently released for iPad, has just announced they have a universal version presently going through the iTunes App Store scrutiny. Once it makes it through, you’ll be able to use VLC on any iOS device
That little iPod Touch that hung around as an advanced MP3 player in its early days has all of a sudden become a mobile gaming powerhouse. Over 1.5 billion “games and entertainment titles” have been downloaded to the iPod Touch.
The new iPod Touch will come in three versions, an 8GB for $229, 32GB for $299 and a 64GB for $399. You will be able to edit videos, do FaceTime between iPod Touch and iPhone users, or iPod Touch and iPod Touch. The Camera is similar to the iPhone 4s, with VGA on the front, no flash however, but HD Video is possible on the rear camera.
Well, that pretty much confirms it. We already knew that Apple would be hosting an event tomorrow and we suspected that a new-generation iPod touch would be revealed. Well, Hard Candy is already announcing cases for the new media player today.
It’s that time of year again. Well, I guess it could be just about any time of year, but Steve Jobs and the Apple crew are planning a special event on September 1st. We have what we believe to be the skinny on what will be revealed. Get ready for a Hulu fighter.
About a week ago, we caught a glimpse of the Apple Peel 520 case, which effectively transforms an iPod touch into a nearly functional iPhone. It grants the iPod access to a cellular network for voice calls, text messages, and so on. Well, that Peel case has now been reviewed, and I’m not that excited about it as I initially was.
The DVT stamp is only added to devices when the design is very close to production-ready. And that makes sense, since the iPod line is probably due for another refresh in time for the new school year in September. What makes me want to yell fake is the fact that it’s based around the old iPhone 3GS shell, wouldn’t the next-generation iPod touch be a bit more resemblant of the iPhone 4?
Up until the launch of the iPhone 4, the aesthetic differences between the iPhone 3GS and the iPod touch have been minimal. The features are largely similar too, except for that whole cellular “phone” part of the equation. Well, you can change all that with a simple new case. At least, that’s what it sounds like with the Apple Peel 520. In effect, you can slap this case onto an iPod touch and it will convert it into a functional Apple iPhone, complete with voice calling and text messaging over a cellular network.
We’re giving away a NOVOTHINK Surge hybrid solar charger case for the iPod touch (black). The solar panel technology allows you to get more music time by simply setting it under the sun.
Reports of Apple working at launching “something new” through their retail chain of stores got mildly noticed this week. Apple Insider reports indicate an internal news bulletin was sent out to employees, details were scarce but the unknown product or service, which may or may not be the iPod Touch 4G, is expected to make a “big” impact.
It may be hard to believe, but Apple has already started its back-to-school marketing campaign; one of the biggest promotions for this campaign is the free iPod touch with the purchase of just about any Mac computer. This is far from a unique promotion, since the Cupertino-based company has been offering the free iPod around the back-to-school time for several years, but this is kind of early, don’t you think? High school students might still be in school and the college kids only got off about a month ago.
For the longest time, there were only a handful of things that separated the iPod touch from the Apple iPhone. The cellular connectivity is an obvious one, but it seems that one of the other differentiating factors is also going to be removed. According to the most recent leaks, the upcoming fourth-generation iPod touch will boast a two-megapixel digital camera. Up until now, the iPod touch has been lacking in the photography department, so this is probably a good change for the better. I don’t think it will cannibalize iPhone sales any more than the current iPod touch does.
We’ve seen plenty of products that are designed to extend the battery life of the Apple iPhone, including the incredibly popular Mophie Juice Pack Air. What about all the iPod touch owners in the audience? Well, Mophie’s going to take care of them too.
Today, Mophie announced the launch of the Juice Pack Air for the iPod touch. Like the iPhone version, the iPod touch version of the Juice Pack Air is a combined battery extender and protective case in one.
Most gamers over the age of ten are sure to have heard of or even played the Tetris game. Tetris of course, is known as the most popular puzzle video games and one of the most popular games of all time. Its sold over 70 million copies throughout the world and is available on almost any gaming device, including the iPhone. If you have an iPhone or iPod Touch and might have forgotten about the old school favorite, you can download it to your device on iTunes for the only $4.99 (£2.99).
Officially announced today, but has been available on the iTunes App Store for just about a week now, RealVNC Viewer for the iPhone and iPod Touch will give you full control of a computer anywhere in the world.
A new app from Logitech is available at the iTunes App Store. The Touch Mouse app turns your iPhone or iPod Touch into a wireless trackpad and keyboard for your computer. You can type, point, click and scroll on either a Mac or PC from a distance.
The “It’s only rock and roll” event is currently underway in San Francisco and I’ll have a roundup of the announcements a little later today, but it seems that Apple dropped a bomb on us just before the event went down too. If these price drops are any indication, it means that we are indeed […]
The new Microsoft Zune HD seems to offer a good value proposition, so you can fully expect the team in Cupertino to come up with some retaliatory measures to respond. We’re probably going to see an updated iPod touch in the months ahead and, based on the latest rumors, it’ll be the biggest iPod Touch […]
I used to tell people that the iPod touch was really just an iPhone in disguise. If Apple were to include the phone part of the equation and integrate a camera in the back, the iPod touch and iPhone would be virtually indistinguishable. It seems that someone in Cupertino was paying attention. This could very […]
Many of the features that you find on the Apple iPhone are also duplicated on the iPod touch, but there are at least two items that are missing from the latter. You don’t get cellular and you don’t get a camera. Well, the picture-taking side of the equation could be changing. What you see here […]
While you could certainly make use of the Apple App Store to get a variety of fart apps and tip calculators, I think the real value comes from the variety of mobile games that you can enjoy on Apple’s touchscreen handhelds. One of the latest to hit the iPhone and iPod touch is the original […]
I’ve always told myself that if I were to spend the money on buying an iPod touch that I would much rather spend a touch more to get the iPhone. Given the relatively minor price difference (especially when you consider carrier subsidies) and the increased cell phone utility of the iPhone, it seemed like an […]
When the first-generation Apple iPhone hit the market, it really revolutionized the way that we approached the cell phone market. When the iPhone 3G arrived, we were introduced to the App Store. We fully expect Apple to unleash a new generation of iPhones this summer and, as it turns out, these new handhelds could come […]
Are you the proud owner of a second-generation Apple iPod touch, but you’re feeling really left out from all your jailbroken iPhone-owning chums? Well friend, you just may be in luck. It took a little longer than expected, but the trusty crew at the iPhone Dev Team have come forth with a reasonably simple way […]
Touchscreens seem to be all the rage these days, so Sony is capitalizing on that interest with the pending release of the Sony X1000 Walkman. The kicker? It’s got an OLED touchscreen and not just some regular Joe Schmoe touchscreen. That OLED-ness will make it great for videos, I’m sure. Poking around the Sony Style […]
Rumors of an Apple Tablet PC have been swirling around for what seems like an eternity, but we could be getting a lot closer to the official launch of a Mac Tablet. In fact, “three independent sources close to Apple” are saying that we should expect a large screen iPod touch device to hit store […]
Although I own neither device, if I were to pick one up, I’d easily lean toward getting the iPhone, because at least it could pull double duty as my cell phone too. Well, choosing between the iPhone 3G and the second-gen iPod touch just got a little more difficult, because it seems that the latter […]
When Apple hosted the Let’s Rock event a while ago, we saw the introduction of the fourth-generation iPod nano and the refreshed iPod touch. While a lot of companies quickly jumped at the opportunity to create a variety of cases for the new nano, not as many have been paying attention to the new touch. […]
There are a few things that separate the iPod Touch from the iPhone 3G, but it seems that one of these differentiating factors has been thrown out the window. As it turns out, the updated iPod Touch 2G comes with full Bluetooth functionality. It may not have cellular, but it’s got Bluetooth. This is a […]
When the first Apple iPhone was revealed to the world, we were introduced to a whole new world of accelerometers, proximity sensors, multi-touch displays, and the convergence of the iPod with the cell phone. Since then, the iPhone and iPhone 3G have gone on to be resounding successes for the company based out of Cupertino, […]
As we look forward to the momentous Apple event next week, it seems that iLounge has found a set of leaked schematics for the next-generation iPod nano and the somewhat updated iPod touch. There’s no saying how legitimate these schematics are, but they could offer a glimpse into what Cupertino will have in store for […]
Despite what Apple may lead you to believe, there are other portable media players out there that just might be able to rival the iPod. It may not be a name that you immediately recognize nor is it a name that you’ll likely remember after reading this post, but the RAmos iMovie T8 sounds like […]
As compelling as the iPhone 3G may be, it’s quite possible that you don’t want to lock yourself down to a lengthy contract with one of the pre-selected providers. By and large, the Apple iPod touch is effectively the same device as the iPhone, except for the fact that it doesn’t have the “phone” part […]
Although Canadians can’t officially get their hands on an Apple iPhone just yet, they can waltz into just about any electronics retailer to the sans cellular version known as the iPod touch. To keep everything protected, Griffin recently revealed the new FlexGrip protective case for the iPod touch and it turns out that the silicon […]
