Netbot, Felix, and Rivr are all fully functional ADN apps for iPhone but is one better than the other, and more importantly, which one should you use? Follow along and we'll help you decide.

iPod touch 5 gallery

If you thought the iPhone 5 set a new bar for thin and light, wait until you see the iPod touch 5. Thanks to the miniaturized Lightning connector and the single layer in-cell display, the iPod touch 5 really is entering the realm of ludicrously, turn-it-sideways-and-it-almost-disappears thin.

iPod touch 5 vs. iPhone 5 vs. iPod touch 4 gallery

The iPhone 5 is the thinnest, lightest iPhone ever, but the iPod touch 5 is almost 2-dimensional. Everything comes at a price, however, and so while the iPod touch 5 is even thinner and lighter than the iPhone 5, it doesn't have anywhere near as good internals. If you don't care about that, however, if all you want to do is scratch the surface and find more surface, then here's how the iPod touch 5 compares to the iPhone 5 is close up. And for good measure, we'll throw in some iPod touch 4 and iPod touch 3 action as well.

The Magazine, by passionate technologists, for passionate technologists, now available in Newsstand

The Magazine is a new endeavor by Marco Arment, the creator of Instapaper and host of Build & Analyze, with no greater or lesser goal than to do an iOS Newsstand periodical the way it was meant to be done. In a market all too littered by massive, unwieldy Adobe InDesign exports, shackled with old-world sales and marketing models, The Magazine's premise comes off as almost audacious -- 4 articles every two weeks, written by passionate technologists for passionate technologists.

Recall for iPhone review

There are always new movies, music, books, TV shows, and apps coming out and friends giving recommendations about the old and new. It can be hard to keep track of what blockbuster hits you wanted to see, which Indie band your friend was telling you about, and that classic book you've been meaning to pick up for ages. With Recall for iPhone, you'll never forget again! Recall lets you quickly add music, movies, tv shows, apps and books to your list and provides you with all the info you need, allowing you to get in and out of the app within seconds. If you want to be reminded on a release date, Recall will do that for you, or if you want to be reminded to download that book on the night before you travel, Recall will do that too. Unfortunately, it's U.S.-only at the moment, so you'll need a U.S. iTunes account to use it.

SGP Ultra Crystal and Ultra Oleophobic screen protectors for the iPhone 5

For some, the big, beautiful iPhone 5 screen just begs to be stared at. For others, it's a scratch-field waiting to happen. If you experience scratch paranoia, one of the first things you'll want for is an iPhone 5 screen protector.

The Ultra-Crytal and Ultra-Oleophobic are the latest from SPIGEN SGP's new iPhone 5 Screen Protector Steinheil Series. Steinheil is billed as an enhanced, ultra-hard optical coating and SPG claims these screen protectors are 25% thicker than previous models, with no rainbow effect, and no interference with either the capacitive multitouch sensors or the clarity of the new, spectacular in-cell display.

Apple Podcasts app review

Shortly after Apple unveiled iOS 6 at WWDC 2012, they released the standalone Podcasts app into the App Store. Previously, podcasts were downloaded via the iTunes app and could be played back in either the Music or Video app, depending on whether they were audio or video podcasts. That split, along with with the lack of any ability to subscribe to podcasts, made it a less than ideal experience (which numerous third party apps tried to solve.) Now, with the dedicated Podcasts app, and with its iOS 6 and iPhone 5 updates, Apple is better is solving it themselves.

Note: This was originally supposed to be part of my iOS 6 review but due to size and time constraints, I'm posting it separately, an belatedly.
