CAZLET: A different take on the iPhone wallet case

Over the past year we've seen quite a few wallet cases for the iPhone. Some of them tried to stow an iPhone inside of a wallet, which made it difficult to use unless you pulled the iPhone out of its protective shelter.

If you've ever paid close attention to Apple's advertising materials, you may or may not have noticed that the time depicted on Apple's products is always 9:41 AM. Apple's affinity for 9:41 AM is evident across much of the company's product line. For example, below is a current snapshot taken...

PhotoFlip! annotates iPhone photos but needs work

PhotoFlip! (free) is a really clever idea that lets you add notes to any photo. By just creating a shell around your existing photos with metadata, it doesn't re-copy the photos wasting space on your iOS device. Notes can be at the top or bottom of the photo, and photos can be shared with or without...

iPhone 101: What model of iPhone do I have?

When you purchase a new iPhone, it's pretty easy to know exactly what you bought. But what about the situation where someone gives you an iPhone and they're not really sure what it is? Apple doesn't help out, as they don't label the phones with stickers that say "iPhone 4" or "iPhone 3GS". Since...

iPhone 101: Change this one setting to get your iPhone battery to last overnight

This happens to me all the time. I get snuggled up under the blanket and am ready to check my Twitter feed and Facebook posts one last time before calling it a night. It's always then and there that I realize my iPhone battery is at less than 10 percent, and all the charging cables are more than...

A homescreen so creative it'll make you go "heh"

Windy is a pretty, relaxing app for iPhone and iPad

Windy (US$2.99, universal) is a relaxation app for the iPhone and iPad. It's from the people behind Thunderspace, which I love. Both apps offer compelling "3D audio," which adds directionality to the sounds you hear. That is to say, raindrops hitting a roof overhead sounds like it's overhead. The...
