Garmin's pricey HUD moves turn by turn directions from iPhone to windshield

When it comes to getting from point A to point B in your car, it's nice to have a phone that knows the way. Garmin, the maker of GPS systems and mapping software, has developed a new Bluetooth accessory that should make it easier to get there: the HUD (short for Heads Up Display). Coming in September, the HUD works with iOS, Android and Window Phone 8 devices alike and gives your automobile a taste of jet fighter technology.

Moshi Codex offers stylish water-resistant protection for MacBook Air

Moshi has an annoying and costly (well, for me, anyway) habit of creating beautiful products for Apple devices that work really well. That's readily apparent in their newest case, the Codex for MacBook Air, a carrying case that lets you keep using your MacBook Air without removing it first.

Asphalt 8: Airborne review - burn rubber in ways physics never intended

Asphalt 8: Airborne is hitting the App Store on August 22, and let me tell you - it’ll be worth every single one of the 99 cents you pay for it, and probably worth a few in-app purchases too. We got our first taste of the game at E3, which, if nothing else, showcased the extreme upgrade in graphics. After playing it for a day or two, I’m happy to report that Asphalt 8 has officially replaced Real Racing 3 as my favorite driving game.

Olloclip Telephoto Lens for iPhone review: Bring distant objects into focus without using zoom

Olloclip's Three-In-One Lens System for the iPhone was a game-changer - an adapter that clipped on to the corner of the iPhone or iPod touch to provide you with separate wide-angle, macro and fish-eye lenses. There was one thing missing, though - a telephoto lens. Olloclip recently announced its Telephoto Lens for iPhone and iPod touch. I've been using it for the last few days and I think it's fantastic.

Evomail for iPhone and iPad review: Full email folder support for the organizationally obsessed!

Evomail is an alternative email app for iPhone and iPad that takes a lot of the same features we love from Mailbox, Dispatch, and more but adds certain highly wanted features that a lot of others unfortunately lack, such as folder support. Evomail currently supports Gmail, iCloud, and Yahoo! accounts which makes it a pretty relevant option for almost everyone.

Riptide GP 2 review: One of the best damn iOS games you'll play this year

Riptide GP 2 is here, and as with the original the folks at Vector Unit have delivered something stunning for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Hitting the App Store today as a long awaited follow up to the original Riptide GP, what we have is something more beautiful, more fun to play, and an all round fantastic mobile game.

For those not familiar with the original; Riptide GP is a water based racing game that sees you pilot powerful Jet Skis around a variety of circuits with differing difficulty. It's appeal goes beyond those who like racing games, because this isn't your typical racing game. The waves affect your lines into corners, throw you up in the air, and it takes a different all round strategy to finish first. So, let's take a look.

Pacific Rim for iOS: Battle giant monsters with a giant robot and go poor in the process

Guillermo Del Toro's new action movie blockbuster Pacific Rim raked in millions during its opening weekend, and it's shaping up to be one of the summer's big tentpole movies. The movie, set in the near future, describes an Earth devastated by giant monsters. Mankind's only defense are a few remaining giant robots controlled by pairs of human pilots who work in tandem to control them. Now there's an iOS game based on the movie available for download. Is it worth the price?

Agenda Calendar 4 for iPhone review: One of the best alternative calendar apps just got better

We took a look at Agenda Calendar for iPhone and iPad back when they were first released and this time, the guys over at Savvy Apps are back with Agenda Calendar 4. This time around they've managed to make a great app even better by cutting unnecessary UI items and adding easy to use gestures.

I've had some time over the past few weeks to use the iPhone version of Agenda Calendar 4 and I have to say that I've come away more delighted than I was with the original version, which was also quite good.

Logic Pro X review: Great for podcasters, great period

Logic Pro X is the latest in a line of re-imagined software from Apple, something they started doing years ago with their video apps, iMovie and later, Final Cut Pro X. This new, more mainstream-friendly direction hasn't been without controversy, especially among professionals. So what does it means for Logic Pro users - and potential Logic Pro users - in general, and for podcasting in particular?
