Do you carry more than just an iPhone or iPad?

These days there's a lot of different devices out there for folks to choose from even in just Apple's line up. Some people only carry and iPad, some people only carry an iPhone and some people carry both an iPad and an iPhone together. Add in the fact that some folks like any varying number of different operating systems and the choices of devices consumers carry is pretty limitless.

Is Chromecast worth $35 to iPhone and iPad users?

When Google unveiled their $35 Chromecast I was genuinely interested. It was cheap and offered a lot of really cool app integration such as streaming from Songza, VEVO, Netflix, Plex and more. I ended up picking a Chromecast up, setting it up in my bedroom and... barely ever using it. Why? Because I'm invested into the Apple ecosystem and they have me hooked with the Apple TV. So, Chromecast was essentially a waste of $35. But what about folks not already invested in the Apple TV? Is the Chromecast a better, cheaper option for them?

Which app do you reach for first in the morning?

The light, the sound, a pet, a person — something! — wakes you up in the morning and, sleep and dreams still swirling through your brain, you grope, bleary-eyed for your iPhone or iPad, fumble-to-unlock, and then swipe and tap around to launch... which app exactly?

Are you using BBM Channels or BBM Voice on BBM for iOS?

Instant messaging (IM) is white-hot right now. The latest update to BBM for iOS added features like BBM Voice that allows you to make and receive calls to other BBM users and BBM Channels that lets you create and follow mini blog of sorts for your favorite personalities, products and more. In the iMore Forums, there has been folks creating groups, sharing their PINS and actively using BBM since BBM was released for iOS but when it comes to BBM Channels there hasn't been a whole lot of conversation. BlackBerry recently announced that big brands have been adopting BBM Channels and from my own personal experience, I know that a lot of channels that already exist are openly welcoming iOS and Android users into the space but is anyone on iOS actually using BBM Channels?

Are you already considering an upgrade to the iPhone 6?

Sure, if Apple sticks to the current schedule, the iPhone 6 won't even be announced until later this fall. However, the topic of upgrading from the iPhone 5s to iPhone 6 is already a hot one on the iMore Forums. Upgrades are a tricky thing. Not everyone upgrades to the latest and greatest device as soon as it becomes available. A lot of factors come into play when making the decision, contract length, pricing, and how much value any new features really bring to the table. And, of course, people can and often do change their minds right up until the moment they're ready to pull the upgrade trigger... or walk away. So what's everyone saying?

Would you want the Phone app on your iPad?

Should the iPad have the Phone app?

With all the talk of a large screen iPhone 6 this year, and potentially more in the years to follow, it's got me wondering — how big is too big? One of the arguments for a big screen iPhone is that it would better serve people who need a phone but want only one primary computing device. A 4.3- to 5-inch iPhone could satisfy them, but what about a 7.9-inch Retina iPad mini with Phone.app installed as well?

How's your Pebble 2.0 battery life?

Pebble's 2.0 update and Appstore is currently iOS exclusive – officially – but is it hurting battery life both on the watch and the phone? I updated the minute I saw it live in the App Store and while I'm in love with the added functionality my favorite smartwatch now has, it isn't without cost to how long things stay charged.

What apps are still missing from the iPhone and iPad App Store?

When you look at Windows Phone or BlackBerry 10 it's easy to see the well-known iOS and Android apps that are missing from their respective app stores. Even with Android, you can look at popular iOS apps like Tweetbot, Fantastical, or Letterpress, not to mention every single one of Apple's apps like GarageBand, Keynote, and iTunes Store, and notice their absence from Google Play. With the iOS App Store, however, it can take a little while longer. The Google apps are mostly there, as is BBM, and many Microsoft apps as well. So what's still missing?
