Seidio 3-in-1 Retractable Charger Reality Review

We have all been there. You know, our iPhone is about to die from a drained battery and no charge cable in sight. Well, the Seidio 3-in-1 Retractable Charger [$29.99 - iMore Store link] is here to change that. The Seidio charger gives you everything you need for any portable situation. You get a USB cable that actually snaps into place (I love that. Most cables I see these days don't actually snap in place, they just fit, but not securely) and the always capable wall charger and large grip-friendly car charger.

App Review: TwiBit 2.0 Twitter Client for iPhone

TwitBit 2.0 Forum Review by llofte. For more Forum Reviews, see the TiPb iPhone App Store Forum Review Index!

Surprisingly, nearly 3 months after iPhone 3.0's release, there are only a few twitter applications that offer push notifications. Twitbit is one of them. Version 1.x wasn't compelling enough for me to use as my primary client, but the latest 2.0 update is rather impressive and brings Twitbit up to par with other great Twitter clients. The design is clean and simple yet not lacking in important features.

App Walkthrough: Tweetie 2.0 Twitter Client for iPhone

Tweetie 2.0 [$2.99 - iTunes link] is the second generation release of one of the iPhone's most popular Twitter clients. According to developer Atebits, it's also a ground-up re-write -- it even has a snazzy new gray, single, cut-out bubble icon to prove it -- the only thing 2.0 having in common with 1.0 being the name. I'd argue that point -- they're also both darn good Twitter clients, and they both share a price of $2.99.

That's right. Since Apple doesn't (yet?) provide a mechanism for upgrades (which to many developers means incentive and to many users means discount), and since in-app purchase can only add content, not replace an entire app, Atebits is packaging Tweetie 2.0 as a whole new app. And they're charging the same price. In other words, whether you bought the first Tweetie or not, you'll have to buy Tweetie 2.0.

Is it worth it? Let's take a look...

App Review: Gokivo Navigator Turn by Turn GPS for iPhone

(Goviko Navigator for iPhone Forum Review by cjvitek For more Forum Reviews, see the TiPb iPhone App Store Forum Review Index!)

Gokivo [$4.99 - iTunes link] is the next GPS application in the increasingly long list of iPhone GPS turn-by-turn apps. First off, when I started the app, I got a little confused because it looks almost exactly like Google Maps (in fact, it may literally be the same). But the interface expands beyond Google Maps. When you put in a term for searching, you get an expanded list of options - including using local Yahoo lists, categories, your contact list, etc.

App Review: FoodScanner Barcode Scanner and Food Tracker for iPhone

FoodScanner App Review by msbaylor. For more App Reviews, see the TiPb iPhone App Store Forum Review Index!

From the creators of the Daily Burn app & Occipital's RedLaser technology comes FoodScanner [$2.99 - iTunes link]. If you have used DailyBurn before (or if you haven't you should, but it's not required to have an account to use the app), then you should know that tracking the foods you eat can become tedious at times, especially when you can't find just the right food to enter into your Food Log.

Note: Review is for version 1.0 of app.

iPod touch (2009) review

For our iPhone 3GS hardware review, we joked it was the same as last year, end of story. Thanks to Apple, we're left with pretty much the same opening line here: the iPod touch G3 is the same as last year.

Except, of course, like the iPhone 3GS, that outward assessment doesn't tell the inner story at all, and while Apple marketing didn't see fit to call this the iPod touch S, that inner story is again all about speed.

Note: You'll see a lot of "like the iPhone 3GS here" because, frankly, it is and we reviewed that member of Apple's mobile platform family first. That also means we'll focus on what differences there are, and we'll also take a look at whether the iPod touch G3 is a good choice for those who want in on Apple's iPod and App Store ecosystem, but don't want an iPhone or smartphone contract. (Yes, BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, Palm, Android, and feature-phone users want an "App for That" too...)
