Marvel at extreme weather hotspots with the Xweather app for the iPad

xweather-app-screenshot.jpg

Although I'm sure there are parts of the US experiencing terrible weather conditions today, I'm sat here in dreary London and... you guessed it... it's raining. In fact I can't even remember when it started raining and in all honesty I doubt it'll ever stop. But, before we all go complaining about how bad the weather is where we live and how we wish we were stranded on a desert island somewhere all of the time, we should probably take a quick look at the Xweather app, which shows you the most extreme weather conditions from around the globe.

The iPhone shutter grip makes taking mobile photos easier

photo-jo-jo-lens.jpg

We love Photo Jo Jo for quirky photography and mobile accessories, but this new iPhone Shutter Grip contraption is particularly clever. It's tiny and all it really does is add a grip and shutter button to your phone, but that makes it so much easier to take good photos.

Available from Photo Jo Jo for $40.

We're Giving You the Feinger

Feinger.jpg

It's been a wacky week for gadgets here at our office, first with the Cowbell, a political noisemaker app, then we were ptiched a bullet-proof iPad case (just exactly where do you live?) but this one if our favorite yet-- the Feinger Now, a device for securing your mobile devices to your hand. Bascially, it allows you to wear your cell phone like a ring, leaving your hands free.

Comprised of three main components - the Knuckle, the Sleeve, and the Unimount (with and without lanyard) - the Feinger attaches to any smartphone, cell phone, portable gaming systems and many other handheld devices. A neoprene sleeve (available in three sizes) fits around a user’s finger, attaching to a ball-and-socket joint that clips into the Unimount.

Once attached, you can pop and lock your device to your hand, around your neck, on your arm, car, home, office and anywhere you can find a flat surface for the small clip. The Knuckle and Unimount are designed in a way to allow for 360 degree rotation of your mobile device, for viewing and use at any angle, regardless of what you're doing. (The options are mind-boggling.).

You can pre-order ($14.95) through the site and they will donate $5 to the WISH-TV Channel 8 Tornado Relief Fund, benefitting the citizens of southern Indiana affected by recent storm damage.

Note: When choosing your Feinger Sleeve size consider the following - Small sleeves fit ring sizes 3 - 7, Medium: ring sizes 8 -11, Large: ring sizes 12-16

Cowbell 2012

cowbell.png

This was so funny we HAD to review it. It's an iphone app called the Cowbell 2012 which is the first -- and as far as we know, the only -- political noisemaker incorporating a customizable
bell for political events and candidate rallies.

Not only can you make a horrendous noise at the next rally, but the playful app streams the latest Democratic, Republican or Tea Party updates through a news and
Twitter feed based on the users political preference.

All of 99 cents at the Apple App store.

Charging concept plugs your phone directly into the wall

htc-charging.jpg

This is a really clever concept from Francois Rybarczyk, which changes the way we charge our mobile phones by taking any unnecessary cables out of the equation.

The phone would come with a special module, which can be left attached to the handset and plugged into the wall directly, or just plugged in on its own then transferred back to the phone later on so you can still use it while it's charging. Genius!

MoFone for iPhone

phone.jpg


At the annual gifting lounge extravaganza (this one sponsored by Live Loyal PR in celebration of the Golden Globes awards) we spotted the "MoFone," a retro handset with an insert for an iPhone. (There's no Bluetooth or even corded functionality here - it's just a holder.)

Designed by LA artist Morrisa Maltz as a piece of art, a buyer for Urban Outfitters happened to see them and now they're selling out.

Are they ridiculous? Yes, but that’s the idea. Many of the retro designs are over-sized and whimsical. All the phones are made by a community of artists which makes the $45 price tag a deal.

Christmas apps for kids: The Night Before Christmas

night-before-christmas.jpg

As much as we try to keep our gadgets away from our kids, most of the time we have to give in and let them play around with their favourite apps.

This Christmas there are lots of lovely apps available to keep the little ones amused, and we love classic 'The Night Before Christmas' story application, specially made for the iPad.

It's another interactive storybook app, which tells the classic Christmas story in a contemporary and quirky way. It's ideal for kids who are learning to read as you can read along with narration or have the story read out loud.

Although it's been made for children, we love the bright and festive illustrations ourselves too!

Available from iTunes for $1.99.

Christmas apps for kids: How the Grinch Stole Christmas

grinch-christmas.jpg

As much as we try to keep our gadgets away from our kids, most of the time we have to give in and let them play around with their favourite apps.

This Christmas there are lots of lovely apps available to keep the little ones amused, and we love the classic 'How the Grinch Stole Christmas' interactive book, which works with your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

The app is specially made to help kids read by highlighting words, accompanying the story with professional narration, lots of audio, bright and colourful illustrations and a great deal of interactive features too.

It may not be a free app, but there are lots of great features alongside the brilliant Dr. Seuss story.

Available from iTunes for $3.99.

TK-421 iPhone keyboard case for mobile typing

phone-keyboard.jpg

We've seen plenty of portable bluetooth keyboards and keyboard cases for tablets and iPads, but this is the first we've come across for the iPhone.

The TK-421is actually a phone case, but it has a flip-out keyboard inside, which you can use for texting, emails and using your favourite apps.

If you're not content with the device's teeny touchscreen keyboard, this might be the perfect solution. However, be prepared for it to add a lot of bulkiness to your usual streamlined iPhone.

Available from Think Geek for $29.99.
