Weekly Web App Review- iRovr

Social networking is all the rage these days. From Facebook to MySpace, everyone has a web presence. Well, now the iPhone crowd has an iPhone only experience, it’s called iRovr. Be prepared to enter the stream…

iRovr is designed to work exclusively on the iPhone. You can log in from a desktop browser, but it is still formatted for our favorite mobile device.

The Setup

The configuration for iRovr is quite clever. You setup and account with your email. Once you do this, iRovr sends you several links to add to your Contacts on the iPhone. You receive a unique address for items such as:

  • Photos: Send photos
  • Videos: Send YouTube videos
  • Blogs: Send a blog post in the form of an email
  • Bookmarks: via the send a link to this page in Safari

Review: Plantronics Discovery 665 Bluetooth Headset

With so many traffic laws being passed regulating cell phone usage in your car, a Bluetooth headset is on the top of every cell phone owner’s mind. The Plantronics Discovery 665 is targeted as the ideal solution for those road warriors who have frequent and lengthy phone calls while on the road so that they can keep their hands and attention on the wheel.

The Plantronics Discovery 665 Bluetooth Headset ($69.95) is a slick looking Bluetooth headset that uses AudioIQ technology to enhance performance. Does the technology translate to real life success? Could this be the Bluetooth headset for commuters around the world?

You’ll have to read on for the rest of the review!

REVIEW: Speck Products Techstyle Classic Leather

The Speck Products Techstyle Classic Leather form-fitting case and holster ($24.95) for your iPhone, available now at the Phone different store, is an elegant, "classic" look (as the product suggests) that provides good protection for your iPhone with traditional leather styling. Keep reading for the full review!

I've always been a leather guy. I ride a Victory motorcycle (weather permitting) and there's nothing like pulling on the leather jacket, Google Mapping a scenic route on my iPhone, and roll some thunder down the open road.

As much as I like the tough-guy image (ha ha), I'm still an uber-geek at heart, so I love trying out new things for my iPhone. When my Speck Products Techstyle Classic Leather case and holster arrived in the mail from the Phone different store, I eagerly opened the plastic packaging and studied the design of this case-and-holster combo.

Web App Review: iCopy

When I first heard of iCopy through fellow Phone Different writer Rene Ritchie, I thought, "Wow, what a great idea, I hope it works". When I installed the software, I was immediately skeptical due to the complexity of the steps involved. So, without saying too much more, let's dive right in!

To use iCopy is simple; install the JavaScript-based bookmarklet and you are good to go. To begin you simple tap the Copy/Paste bookmark in Safari on the iPhone. After doing this you are presented with three choice: Copy, Paste and Cancel.

Review: Belkin Clear Acrylic Case for iPhone

There are several choices for an iPhone case at the Phone Different Store. One that caught my eye was the Belkin Clear Acrylic Case ($14.95) due to its unique "kickstand". I was very excited to see this type of case become available for the iPhone. It is perfect for setting on a tray table or on any table for that matter. But the real question is how does it hold up as a case?

Phone Different Week in Review, March 21, 2008

Every week I will be bringing you what I think are the week’s biggest stories and articles. Here we go!

Adobe Flash for iPhone

Would Adobe just make it for our beloved already? We started off the week with Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen hopes Apple's newly released SDK will help Adobe deliver that middle ground, with or without Jobs' blessing. The world was ecstatic, could this really be?

… Well, not so fast, a few days later there was a, um, clarification.

Can’t we all just get along, join hands, sing Kumbaya and make Flash happen?

More of our best stuff after the break!

Review: Seidio Inno Case for iPhone

The Seidio Inno Case for the iPhone ($32.95) is a very subtle case that manages to increase the functionality of the phone and enhance the user experience. The design is simple and understated and comes in colors such as blue, black, and burgundy. The case adds some flair but little to no bulk to your iPhone.
