What if your iOS lockscreen intelligently pulled together all the data inside your iPhone and made sure that you could keep track with your real-world life without even sliding-to-unlock?
This beautiful iOS 7 concept by JÃ¼rgen Ulbrich of Apfellike.de reimagines iOS as something a lot more similar to Google Now than we’ve ever seen in iOS before.
Stylistically, we can quibble about it — the visual style of this concept obviously is more in Google’s school than Apple’s — but [Read More...]
iOS 7 concepts are a dime a dozen these days. Everyone is coming up with short video walkthroughs of what they think the next version of Apple’s mobile operating system will look like.
Rumors say that Apple is making iOS 7 “flatter” and less skeuomorphic (no pool table felt in Game Center, for example). That has led a lot of concept creators to what I think are, frankly, some overdone conclusions. Yesterday [Read More...]
Of course, I have no way of knowing whether space aliens actually had a hand in designing the Booq Boa Squeeze. I ran into a couple of Booq bigwigs in an elevator at the Consumer Electronics Show in Vegas once, and they seemed pretty cheery, completely normal, and not at all alien-like â€” too not-alien-like, considering Booq is based in Southern California (I consider myself a Southern Californian; we’re all weirdos). And [Read More...]
I’m posting about this Android-based tablet for a few reasons. One, I want it, and as it’s crowd-funded, my chances of getting one are helped if you want it, too.
Second, I figure that if you love your iPad as much as I love mine, then you might miss it when you get all outdoorsy and go camping/hiking/biking.
And third? It’s just awesome: the Backcountry Tablet is an e-ink, solar-powered iPad. With GPS. What’s [Read More...]
Apple has long had a love affair with including incredible ocean and wave imagery into their product shots. They’ve been doing it for years, with some stunning wave and surf photography featured prominently on the screens of Macs, whether it’s from the old PowerBook days, to even right now on Apple.com with the iMac, Retina MacBook Pro, and iPad Mini. Clearly there are some people [Read More...]
If you’re going to make an iPhone stand that slips onto a keyring, you may as well make it look like a key, amirite? Right? Hello?
Ok, so that part of the design is a little dumb, but the Keyprop itself is pretty ingenious, especially the way it manages to work with both the iPhones 4 and 5.
The Keyprop works like a key, and can even be used whilst still on the [Read More...]
Briefs is a new Mac app that allows designers to create interactive mockups of iOS apps. Developed byÂ MartianCraft, Briefs can build iPhone and iPad app mockups without a single line of code. It looks like the ultimate tool for prototyping app ideas to clients and developers.
Different elements of an app can be assembled on the desktop and sent to the Briefscase iOS client via a shared [Read More...]
Close, damn you! This is a case that requires taming.
Kanam by Davarg Category: Cases Works With: iPhone 5 Price: $ 45
This is the first part of a two-part review. When you see the case Iâ€™m writing about, the reason will be obvious. Itâ€™s the Castello Davarg Kanam, and itâ€™s a wraparound case fashioned from full grain leather in the good old U.S of A. Fortunately, this doesnâ€™t mean that it was [Read More...]
Your heart races as you stare at your Mac’s screen, breathlessly anticipating the browser window loading another time. “If I just hit refresh again, maybe it will work,” you tell yourself. And it doesn’t. You check Twitter to see that your nerdy, developer friends can’t order tickets either.
WWDC 2013 sold out in two minutes. That’s crazy, but it’s true. You missed out.
Perhaps the above image is a more appropriate logo [Read More...]
