Wake, the minimal iPhone alarm clock app definitely made me look. Placing your hand over your phone will trigger the snooze and flipping over your phone will turn off your alarm. And for heavy sleepers there’s shake mode which forces you to shake your iPhone until you get up. Impressive. Congrats to the Tiny Hearts team.
I just received a ‘handwritten’ card that was sent via an app called Felt. I could not tell that it was written on an iPad. Oddly impressive.
YES! YES! YES! CableKeeps secure your USB docking cable to your iPhone, iPod or iPad power adaptor for neat and tidy storage.
Twitter finally launched its much-anticipated Music App. It lets you see what music is trending, emerging and find new music from artists you follow. Smart.
The Crankerator lets you charge you iPod/iPhone/iPad on the go, when you’re far away from any outlets. It includes a micro USB cable so you can charge it up, via your computer or wall socket, before you hit the road! Brilliant!
Yay for locally grown food!
For the past two years Cesar Kuriyama has been recording 1 Second Every Day so he’ll never forget a day ever again. Cesar says that The One Second Project has had such profoundly positive impact on his life, that he decided to develop an App that will make it easy for anyone to create these day-memories.
Watch his TED Talk on the project.
The 0.99$ I spent on MaddieCam on Sunday have already paid off a hundred times over. Haven’t had this much fun with an app in a while. Maddie is the famous internet coonhound that stands on things and now, you can put her on anything you’d like, thanks to MaddieCam.
Yes, I am a fan.
The Moves iPhone App tells you how much you move (or not). Moves automatically records any walking, cycling and running you do. The app is always on, so there’s no need to start and stop it. Love it!
While visiting NYC last week, Christoph Niemann stopped by Studiomates and I got to see his brand new kids iPhone/iPad app called Petting Zoo. At the time he had just submitted it to the App Store, but it is live now! YES!
Interacting with Petting Zoo made me laugh, squeal and giggle. Yes, it’s *that* much fun to play with. Trust me, download it, and laugh away with your little ones (or alone). I can’t wait to show this to Tilo tonight!
Amplifiear is brilliant in its simplicity, a simple solution to the iPad’s rear facing (and weak) speakers.
The iPhone Cable Trigger is a remote shutter release for iDevices. Handy for those times when you want to take a photo without touching your phone, and for starting and stopping video sans camera-shake.
I had the honor to sit next to Ping Fu at last night’s Cooper Hewitt National Design Awards Gala and she handed me a an absolutely amazing 3D printed iPhone Case by Freshfiber. I put it on my iPhone and have been fiddling with it nonstop since. The interlinked rings create an incredibly fascinating texture. The rings move seperately from each other so you can jiggle them.
The case was designed by Janne Kyttanen and you can buy it and lots of other cool 3D printed designs over at Freshfiber.
Maily is an email app for little kids that let’s them draw/write a message and then send it to a selected group of family members and friends. Cute idea. And most of all, the name Maily makes me smile.
Going somewhere where you won’t find any outlets? This pocket solar charger (site is in German) might come to the resque. Nifty.
