Slope by Dekke is the most magical iPad stand you'll ever own

Slope by Dekke is a new stand for iPad, actually tablets in general, that is unique in its own right. As you can see above, it looks much like the base of an iMac stand and pairs beautifully with an attached iPad. The most amazing part, however, is that it uses a series of tiny air pockets to secure your iPad into place and secure itself to most surfaces. It really is like magic.

iPad Air Smart Case review

Apple typically releases two types of cases for the iPad, the Smart Cover and the Smart Case. While the Smart Cover only protects the screen and attaches magnetically, the Smart Case provides full body protection in a variety of different colors. The last generation Apple Smart Case left us disappointed to say the least. Let's see if the new version is any better...

Touch ID takes hardware security to new levels - Here's how, why, and what it means!

We already know that the iPhone 5s' Touch ID secures your digital fingerprint by storing it on the Secure Enclave portion of the A7 that's only accessible to the sensor itself. But what if that wasn't the only safeguard Apple took in order to protect your prints? We've taken a closer look at Touch ID and through some collaboration with repair company mendmyi, we've found that Apple actually did take extra precautions, but on a hardware level that we've never seen implemented before. Here are the details!

Dragon Realms combines monster collecting, town building, and online battles

Yesterday we looked at Elemental Kingdoms, a card battling RPG. Today we're back with a massively multiplayer online RPG/town-building hybrid called Dragon Realms. The spiritual successor to last year’s Kingdom Age, Dragon Realms was developed internally at GREE’s RPG+ Studio. Hundreds of creatures to collect, cooperative and PVP play, and cross-platform multiplayer make for a lengthy and addictive experience.

Round table review: OS X Mavericks

Last Tuesday Apple released OS X 10.9 Mavericks, the tenth generation of their modern desktop operating system. We've already published Peter Cohen's extensive OS X Mavericks review, but many of us have been using it for awhile now as well, some since the beta went live following WWDC 2013 in June. So, to bring you as many opinions as possible, we've put together a good, old-fashioned, Mobile Nations round table. Here's what all of us think of Mavericks!

OS X Mavericks review

Over the course of the past decade, we've seen many changes to OS X - some iterative, some significant. OS X's newest incarnation, "Mavericks" or version 10.9, is a bit of both. It doesn't significantly rework the user interface like Apple did with iOS 7, though there are some nice tweaks. Apple did make a number of changes under the hood to improve performance and efficiency, however, especially for mobile users.

iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c round table review: One month later

The iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c launched a month ago today, and that means we've had just over 4 weeks to put them through their paces and evolve our first impressions. So, was the iPhone 5s a forward looking upgrade, is the iPhone 5c a popular alternative? One month later, how well have Apple's new iPhones held up?

iOS 7 round table review: One month later

iOS 7 launched a month ago, though in truth many of us have been using it for several months now, counting the beta. Some of the amazing new features have been transformative, and changed the way we use our iPhones and iPads every day. Others... have been buggy and frustrating. So, overall, how has iOS 7 been working for the writers and editors of iMore?

Sunrise Calendar 2.0 for iPhone review: Now with support for iCloud calendars!

Sunrise Calendar for iPhone has always been an extremely unique alternative calendar app as it manages to combine all your calendar events with weather forecasts for the day. Previously, you could only use a Google account with Sunrise but as of version 2.0, there's support for iCloud built right in. If you aren't happy with the native Calendar app in iOS 7, which many of you don't seem to be, Sunrise Calendar is a very viable alternative.

Sony Cyber-shot QX10 review

In Berlin, back in early September, Sony gathered members of the press together to introduce its fall range of products. Along side TVs, cameras and Android phones was the Cyber-shot QX10 and QX100. These 'lens cameras' are a unique product, in so much that there is a whole compact camera housed within something which looks just like a lens. The killer feature; the cameras connect to your iPhone or Android phone for that connected camera experience without the added expense of something like the Samsung Galaxy line of cameras. We've had a QX10 for a couple of weeks now, so is Sony onto a winner, or does it solve a problem that no-one really has? Let's find out.
