Fantastical comes to Apple Watch — with reminders!

Fantastical by Flexibits is the calendar app I use on iPhone, iPad, and Mac.

I'm typically a default app kind of person, but Fantastical makes entering and finding appointments so much faster and better than the default calendar app, it overcame my usual bias. So now that Fantastical has made the leap to the Apple Watch, will I leap to it there as well?

Soundfreaq Pocket Kick Review: Nothing pint-sized about the sound of this speaker

Are you looking for a pint-sized speaker with gallons of sound? Time to get your Soundfreaq on.

Portable Bluetooth speakers are a dime-a-dozen these days, which makes differentiating them even more difficult. At a reader's behest, I recently checked out Soundfreaq's offerings; their Pocket Kick is an impressive speaker that's truly small enough to fit in your pocket.

Leather Loop band for Apple Watch review

The Leather Loop band for the 42mm Apple Watch is made of quilted Venezia leather from Arzignano, Italy, and has a magnetic closure, making it both comfortable and endlessly adjustable.

I ordered the black version of the Leather Loop the same time I ordered my Black Steel Apple Watch. I just loved the way it looked at the Apple events and was eager to try it out. The Loop arrived a couple of weeks before my watch, but I had a stainless steel review unit, so it gave me a chance to try that pairing first. Since then I've been wearing the Leather Loop, off and on, for almost a month now and under a wide variety of circumstances. So, how's it holding up?

Review: Fugoo blasts other Bluetooth speakers out of the water

Waterproof, dustproof, portable, and classy: Fugoo is a fantastic Bluetooth speaker for your indoor and outdoor needs.

The $179 Fugoo speaker and I were first introduced back in January, when, during a tradeshow, I heard the boom of Taylor Swift's Shake It Off, a splash, then an exclamation: "It's playing underwater!"

When I turned to look, I found a member of Fugoo's staff smiling and chatting with the aforementioned exclaimer. Both stood around a large fish tank, where several other staff members were dunking active Fugoo speakers, then tossing them on the floor with abandon. On an otherwise sleepy day, the booth was a beacon of sound and life.

Apple Watch roundtable review

We've just posted our definitive Apple Watch review. Since Apple Watch isn't just a new product for Apple but a new product category, we thought we needed to do something more. We needed to review it more. That means more opinions from more people, namely the rest of iMore's editorial staff. So, if you're looking for a second, third, or even fourth opinion on the Apple Watch, read on!

Apple Watch review

We've seen it countless times: A starship reaches orbit, then launches a smaller ship. Enterprise. Executor. Galactica. They're meant for the bigger jobs, the longer jobs, the harder jobs. But the small jobs — the brief yet important ones — are better left to something lighter and more agile. So too, the iPhone and the Apple Watch.

MacBook (2015) Review

For any MacBook owner who has ever looked jealously at an iPad, Apple has made your dreams a reality.

When The Terminator first arrives in our time, he's naked. The lesson to be drawn from that is this — you can have the future right here, right now, You just can't have anything extraneous along with it. So too, the new MacBook.

Every few years Apple likes to redefine what it means to be a laptop. The company has done it with plastics and metals, and even with envelopes. Drives have come and gone and so have ports. With this latest MacBook, the first to bear just that simple name since 2011, even the constants of screen, keyboard, and trackpad have changed. They've gone Retina, butterfly, and Force Touch respectively. They, each of them, have once again become the state of the art. It's whether or not those changes ultimately benefit the customer that remains in question, or more accurately — what kind of customer do they benefit?

iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus review: Six months later

It's been six months since we published our original iPhone 6 review and iPhone 6 Plus review, and ninety days since we revisited it in our three months later review.

We've now lived with Apple's big and bigger new iPhones for a half a year. We've taken a ton of pictures. We've pushed the Apple A8 processor and we've charged and discharged the battery over and over again. We've kept them in our pockets and we've dropped them on our floors. We've roamed with them. We've talked to and with them. And we've stared at their screens. A lot. As such, we've had time to evolve our initial thoughts and feelings. And that means it's time to take one more look at the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, iMore roundtable, six months later…
