BookBook wallet case for iPhone review

Twelve South's BookBook wallet case for iPhone 5s and iPhone 5 looks, for all intents and purposes, like a gorgeous old leather-bound book. Like something out of a pulp-fiction library or fantasy role-playing game, magic bound within. And indeed there is! Open the BookBook up and your iPhone — and cards and cash — are safe and secure inside!

Galaxy S5 or iPhone 5s: Which phone should you get?

The Galaxy S5 has only just been announced while the iPhone 5s has been available since September 2013. However, until the iPhone 6 launches — presumably in September of 2014 — they'll be the two top phones on the market. They'll also be very different experiences, from hardware to software to services and back. Some people will know immediately which one they want. Others will be pouring over every review, watching every video, sweating every detail, second guessing every decision. If you're one of those, if you're on the fence, I'll keep this short and sweet — if you're stuck between the Galaxy S5 and the iPhone 5s, here's the one you should get...

Belkin QODE Ultimate Keyboard Case for iPad Air review

The iPad Air can be a productivity powerhouse when paired with a great keyboard case. We've already put several of them head to head and now Belkin's back with another offering, the QODE Ultimate Keyboard Case. I had issues with some of the design choices Belkin made with the standard QODE Keyboard Case which I outlined in my review. Let's see if Belkin's top of the line offering fares any better in real world use...

booq Boa squeeze bag hands-on!

The booq Boa squeeze packs five accessory pockets spread along the sides and the back, an iPhone compartment on top, and an iPad and MacBook Air or MacBook Pro pockets inside. And yet it still manages to look sleek and sexy! Thanks to a 1680 denier ballistic nylon exterior and ultra-soft nylex interior, it'll repel tears and water, and keep all your gear safe and secure as well!

Brian Cox's Wonders of Life lets you hold the glories of nature in your hands

Brian Cox's Wonders of Life comes from the same team that brought us Wonders of the Universe. If you've so much as glanced at the stunning visuals or touched the magnificent gesture-based navigation of that app then, well, you've probably already tapped out of this review and are busily buying Wonders of Life, aren't you? For those who haven't, like Wonders of the Universe before it, Wonders of Life takes you on a journey, this time not of stars and solar systems, but of plants and animals. It's not just the journey here that makes Wonders of Life such an amazing iOS experience. It's the experience that makes Wonders of Life such an amazing iOS app.

Tylt PowerPlant portable battery pack with Lightning connector review

Wi-Fi. Cellular. Games. The more you use your iPhone, the more you're going to run down the battery. As advanced as the iPhone gets inside, there are still practical limits for the capacity of its internal batteries, and sometimes what comes with it simply isn't enough. That's where a device like Tylt's PowerPlant, a portable battery pack, can really make a difference.

Beyond the Dead review: Build a settlement of zombie killers on iOS

There’s no shortage of zombie games in the modern age, not even on mobile. And while zombies lend themselves especially well to action and shooter games, they also pop up in many other genres.  A couple of iOS examples: The Walking Dead is quite a popular adventure game, and cult favorite Zombies!!! mixes the undead with a dice-rolling board game.

Mobile publishing giant GREE has recently tossed its own hat into the world of zombie games with Beyond the Dead. Coming from GREE’s Vancouver-based studio, Beyond the Dead is more of a traditional mobile game than the two titles I just mentioned. But this one’s mixture of card collecting and town building with a zombie apocalypse still makes it worth a look for zombie-loving casual gamers.

Beats Music review: So good I may finally ditch Rdio!

Now that Beats Music is finally available, it has a lot of folks wondering how it stacks up to the likes of existing services and whether it's worth making the switch. I've been taking a look at what Beats Music has to offer for the exact same reason. I've completely set aside my main streaming services, Rdio and Songza, in order to give it a fair chance. And after a few days, my decision has become harder than ever.

Adrift for iOS: The puzzle game that makes solving a Rubik's Cube look easy

Adrift for both iPhone and iPad is a puzzle game with a simple premise but not so simple game play. You're tasked with drawing paths to each color in each world. The paths appear on three sides of a cube and they can't intersect. While game play starts out easy, it quickly gets challenging.
