Two cheap gadgets to help you take perfect hands-free iPhone panoramas every time

Admit it — you’re more likely to use the panorama feature to see if you can stretch one of your friends the length of a room than to capture a beautiful sunset. Being able to take panorama shots with the iPhone is a fun diversion, but without a proper stand, you’re unlikely to ever create a perfect panorama.

That’s where these two affordable gadgets come in. More →

There is no question that Bowling Central is one of the coolest iOS games we have ever seen. There is also no question that it’s one of the craziest and most dangerous iOS games we have ever seen.

Now, there’s an iOS game that lets you relive the Wii’s popular bowling game using your iPhone in place of a Wii controller. More →

This tiny magnetic keyboard might be the coolest iPhone accessory we’ve ever seen

Also, the software keyboard itself is much better in iOS 8 than it has ever been before.

But the simple fact of the matter is that typing on glass with no tactile response will never be as good an experience as typing on a real physical keyboard, but size and portability will always be an issue. That’s exactly why the new TextBlade keyboard from WayTools is so intriguing. More →
