Get the Most Out of your iPhone’s Control Center with Return

Coming soon to the ModMYI repo on Cydia is RETURN, a tweak by the Developer of Boxy 2, and certified minimalist William Vabrinskas. What Return does is simply display the most recently opened apps above your Control Center. This of it as your Control Centers App Switcher. And for someone who tends to use my toggles more, this has the potential to be an essential tweak. Along with tweaks like CCControls and Polus, I’ve already made this tweak feel at…

Henge Docks Gravitas Review with iPhone 6 and 6 Plus Inserts

The Henge Docks Gravitas for iOS devices is, by far, my favorite phone and tablet dock. The problem is that the review unit came wasn’t designed for the iPhone 6 or 6 Plus.

Pivotal Life 1 Fitness Tracker Review

If you’ve been looking for a fitness tracker, your budget is probably in the $50 to $150 range. That’s reasonable for a connected pedometer/fitness data collector, but Pivotal Living disagrees. They see the value of fitness tracking in the service, not the hardware, so they sell a subscription model instead. $12 gets you one year of service and one Pivotal Life 1 band!


Satechi Announces the BT Button Series for Hands Free Phone Action

I admit, as much as I love my 7 year old Prius, I get a little jealous hearing about the amazing ways smartphones are being integrated with newer cars.

It  took a little over 3 years, but Apple has introduced an iMessage deregistration tool allowing iPhone users who’ve moved away from iOS the ability to deregister their number from being connected to iMessage within Apple’s servers.  If you’ve gone from iPhone to Android (or any other platform), you might’ve encountered problems continuing to receive text messages from iPhone friends.

With the excitement of receiving my iPhone 6 plus, I knew immediately I had to put a case on it.

Is Your iPhone 5 Screen Lifting Up and Away?

Due to a problem with my billing address and the popularity of the iPhone 6+, I have to wait another month to get my phone. That isn’t a huge problem in the grand scheme of things, except I have an issue with my iPhone 5 screen lifting!

Consumer Reports Takes On ‘BendGate’ with Science … Finds NO #BendGate

By now anyone who follows technology – and many who don’t – has heard about #BendGate, the term coined after a video showed how easy it was to bend and distort the iPhone 6/6+. Honestly, I wasn’t surprised – they are incredibly thin and light with an elongated aspect ratio. But is #bendgate REAL? Consumer Reports took a scientific look!


Top 10 Reasons I Switched from the 5.7″ Galaxy Note 3 back to the iPhone 5

A few weeks ago I bought a brand new Samsung Galaxy Note 3 on a great deal, and wanted to see if it would be possible to use it to replace my iPhone AND iPad, much as I would try to do with an iPhone 6+. As usual I went ‘all in’ with my attempt – and failed. Here is why! Until getting the iPhone 5 in 2012 I had been an Android-only phone user, and had sampled pretty much…


Apple iPhone 6 Plus Leather Case Video Review

I woke up at 2:55am EST when iPhone 6 pre-orders began. I placed my order and was asleep ten minutes later. Of course, AT&T completely screwed up, and my phone won’t come for weeks.

Apple Love letter: Gives Me More Apple iCloud Storage for Less!

Here’s something you don’t see everyday, Apple just emailed me that they are increasing my iCloud storage from 55GB to 200GB. That’s nothing unusual as Dropbox recently did a similar upgrade. But Apple also changed pricing of Apple iCloud. 55GB was $100 while the new 200GB is under $45. Without my asking Apple is sending me a refund. That $45 comes just in time to help defray a tiny bit of the cost of my new iPhone 6+. How about…
