How to take better Snapchat and Instagram photos with iPhone

How do you make your Snapchat, Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook photos really stand out from the crowd? With these five tips!

If you're on social media, it often feels like if you haven't photographed it, it didn't happen. And when you do photograph it, you want it to look as good as humanly possible. Better even. So whether it's for Snapchat or Instagram, Twitter or Facebook, here are some top tips to turn your iPhoneography into social media gold!

Pick up some cheap external lenses to experiment with

One of the easiest ways to start getting creative with phone photography is to pick up some inexpensive external lenses. You can buy a set of four on Amazon for less than $20; all you have to do is search for iPhone lenses.

Even cheap lenses will take good photos and if you're worried about breaking them because you're not familiar with using 'em, don't worry! It's better to break a $4 lens than a $200 iPhoneography-specific case (our favorite cheap lenses are the MEMTEQ 5-in-1, the Evershop Universal 2-in-1, and the Oldshark lens kit).

If you're stuck on what to get, check out our five fantastic iPhone lenses for under $100.

Figure out your favorite photography editing app

Forget about Photoshop or online photo editors – find a photo app that works best for you! Your Facebook friends will be thrilled that they don't have to look at the same boring photos over and over again.

There are hundreds of photo editing apps available to download. Some of them work by just laying a tinted filter over your image, while others allow you to adjust brightness, saturation, contrast, and more. At the end of the day, you want something that you're comfortable with, so having all the bells and whistles isn't always necessary.

Some of the most popular apps out there are VSCO, which uses vivid filters and adjustable presets to customize your snapshots; Mextures, which aims to bring professional grade photographic effects to your iPhone; Repix, an amazingly detailed filter that lets you 'draw' on your images, and many, many more.

Pick up a flexible tripod

If you're new to iPhoneography, a tripod could potentially be your best friend. It seems like an unnecessary tool, but it's an amazing way to set up shots, keep things steady, and even get some tricky, hard-to-reach photographs.

While it's a pain in the butt to set up some big DSLR and video tripods, using up a flexible tripod like the JOBY GorillaPod Original is infinitely easier. The flexible or smaller tripods are easy to carry around and set up in a flash, so you don't ever need to worry about missing your shot or taking something blurry.

Another thing tripods are good for is getting shots you typically couldn't reach on your own. You could secure your flexible tripod to bike handlebars, wrap it around a light post and use a remote shutter to snap street shots, and much more. Get creative and you'll be racking up those likes like crazy!

Be sure to take a peek at our list of best iPhone tripods for stablizing and mounting for some more ideas.

Play with your phone settings

Did you know your phone has burst mode? Did you know you can secure and focus parts of your photo by tapping your screen? Did you know you can snap your photos with the volume button?

Get familiar and play around with the camera settings of your iPhone and you'll unlock an entire new world of iPhoneography fun. You'll find that there are settings and helpful tools – like a grid that appears to establish rule of thirds or frame-size options when you're taking your photo – hidden in your camera app already.

Play around with your camera app, snap photos with and without the flash, and figure out what looks best to you (and if you're stuck, check out our 10 tips for taking great iPhone photos.)

Follow your favorite photographers on social media

There are a ton of amazing photographers out there on social media who use both their iPhone or DSLR to shoot pictures. Instagram has almost become a hub for these photographers to follow and share their work, but it can also be a place where you can get your main inspiration for photography!

A few of our favorites to follow at iMore for their unreal social media photography are @safesolvent, @mostlylisa, @knatez, @meghanzahari, @carla_kristina, and @kickhisasscbass. While all of their styles are totally different and what they choose to shoot varies dramatically, each of their photos are unique, vivid, and memorable.

Don’t like the Magic Mouse? Here are the best alternatives for your Mac!

Magic Mouse doesn't feel right? Check out these great alternatives.

Apple's Magic Mouse isn't for everyone. It's got multi-touch gesture support, and is newly rechargeable, but many people would still trade fancy features for traditional mouse power and style. So, if you don't like the Magic Mouse that came with your Mac, you can and should get something else. Here are are top choices!

The best at any cost

Low-cost option

The best at any cost

Logitech Performance Mouse MX

Using a small USB receiver, the Logitech Performance Mouse MX is a wireless mouse with a rechargeable battery that lasts about one month. Unlike the Magic Mouse, Logitech allows you to charge the Performance Mouse's battery while you're using it, meaning you don't have to worry about being stuck with no mouse when the power runs out.

Even though it is a laser mouse, Logitech Darkfield Laser technology has advanced tracking capabilities, allowing you to use it on virtually any surface; glass tables are no longer your worst enemies.

The scroll wheel on top of the mouse is smooth but precise, which means you'll be able to scroll to exactly what you want when you want to.

The four thumb buttons on the Performance Mouse MX make your life much easier by being programmable to actions you need. Zooming in and out of images, flipping back-and-forth between apps, or navigating through web pages, can all be accessible with just your thumb, keeping you moving as fast as possible.

The Logitech Performance Mouse MX starts around $63 and is perfect for any right-handed user who wants a more conventional mouse with a few features that provide a more streamlined user experience.

See at Amazon

Logitech MX Master

The Logitech MX Master is a step up the ladder in terms of quality. The rechargeable battery lasts for a total of 40 days on average, which means you'll never feel like a slave to the charging cable. If the battery does die while you're using it, no worries because you can charge the mouse while using it.

You can use the small USB receiver included with the MX Master, but you also have the option of using Bluetooth instead, meaning you don't have to waste one of your precious USB ports.

It comes with the Darkfield Laser technology that allows you to use the mouse without a mouse pad on all different types of surfaces. Glass or other high-gloss material won't confuse the sensors inside the MX Master, so no matter where you're using it, you should have consistently smooth performance.

Along with having two customizable buttons, the MX Master has a side-scrolling wheel in the thumb slot, which makes side-to-side scrolling easier than ever before.

The dots per inch (DPI) can be set in intervals of 200, starting at 400 and up to 1600 DPI, meaning you can always find the perfect speed and sensitivity that feels the most comfortable to you.

You should consider picking up the Logitech MX Master is you want a high-performance mouse that allows you to keep all your USB ports completely free. The MX Master typically costs around $100.

See at Amazon

Low-cost option

AmazonBasics wireless mouse with nano receiver

Much like the name suggests, the AmazonBasics wireless mouse is a pretty basic device. It connects to your Mac via a USB receiver, meaning it will take up one of your USB ports. It runs on one AAA battery — included with purchase — which can last up to 3 months on average.

The scroll wheel on the top of the mouse glides smoothly and doesn't make any annoying noises, so you always have an easy time browsing through your favorite content online. It has both left-click and right-click buttons that are clearly defined and separate from each other, meaning you don't have to worry about clicking the wrong one.

If you aren't looking to spend a lot of money — about $12 — and just want an ordinary mouse that will comfortably handle day-to-day use, the AmazonBasics wireless mouse could be a perfect choice.

Mobile Nations Weekly: Gems, Java, and smarts

Posted on by Derek Kessler.
Categories: Uncategorized.

Google wins in court, ZTE goes big, Tesla ramps up, Apple on the defensive, and the return of Windows Central Gems!

Windows Central Gems is back! With support from Microsoft we're checking out some great and maybe overlooked apps across the Microsoft ecosystem — and giving away a bunch of great prizes to boot!

Google just scored a big win in its ongoing court battle with Oracle over Java APIs. It's far from the end of the case, but it's a major turning point in the legal drama. ZTE impressed the hell out of us with the Axon 7, and we've got Moto X leaks and OnePlus 3 teases and for some reason a Batman version of the Galaxy S7.

As the ramp up to the Model 3, Tesla is going all out on fundraising and raking in $1.7 billion from a stock offering. Tesla's Autopilot system has also seriously extended its already long lead over competing autonomy systems by racking up 100 million autonomous miles, though we still can't recommend you sleep in the driver's seat.

Following Google's impressive smart assistant demonstrations at Google I/O, Apple's finding their Siri assistant unfavorably compared to Google and Amazon's Alexa, but Apple might have something up their sleeves to address that and help the company stay relevant.

If you're an Xbox gamer, you're no doubt giving consideration to the latest flagship game release. It's Overwatch, and it's simply phenomenal. And we're starting to get rumors of new Xbox hardware in just a few weeks at E3.

All of that and much, much more in this edition of Mobile Nations Weekly!

iMore — The Home assistant

Amazon has Echo, Google's working on Home, so now rumors are ablaze about Apple getting into the Hub game. We'll save the Siri vs. Alexa comparisons for those who forget the world has more than one country or language, but there's obviously a lot more Apple could do around the house. (Whether it's built into a next-generation Apple TV or not).

iPhone 7 rumors continue to abound as well, there's likely more health technology on its way, and Apple's WWDC 2016 event is only a few weeks away. Stay tuned!

Android Central — I/O Hangover 2016

Google I/O is done until next year, and that means it's a week mixed with getting back to normal news and also breaking down all of the announcements now that we've had more time to take it all in. In case you missed it, Google has put up video replays for every session this year, and it's worth picking out a few you're interested in.

Pebble announced three new products, trying to follow up on Google's latest Android Wear news out of I/O. In more general Google news, the jury ruled in its favor in an ongoing court case where Google was being sued by Oracle over its use of Java. It's a big win for Google, but we're sure this isn't the last we've heard from Oracle on this front.

The OnePlus 3 will be unveiled in virtual reality, which is the popular thing to do nowadays. Per usual, rumors peg the new phone to have some great specs. At the same time, the OnePlus 2 and X have received price drops.

Also in the leak world, Lenovo's new Moto X gets a bit more interesting with new modules. So, what do you want to see in the new phone?

Let's all pour one out for the Nexus Player.

And how about a Batman Galaxy S7 edge?

CrackBerry — Sunsets

Priv app updates galore, a new software maintenance release scheduled for June and John Chen discusses why he came to BlackBerry, his future plans and more rounded out the week on CrackBerry. Oh and PayPal decided to let it be known they're killing off their BlackBerry app that most folks didn't even know existed as of June 30.

Tesla Central — Autosleep

Tesla knows they're going to need a lot of money to build the 370,000+ Model 3s that have been reserved so far — so they raised $1.7 billion by selling new shares of TSLA. At the same time, an investment research firm came to the absurd conclusion that Tesla operates, at least on a financial basis, like a Ponzi scheme. Except for the part where Tesla actually makes cars.

Tesla's director of Autopilot revealed that the company has collected 780 million miles worth of data through the self-driving system, and that Autopilot has driven 100 million miles — far more than any competing autonomy system. That said, it's far from full autonomy and requires human attention, so it should go without saying, but apparently we still have to say it: Autopilot is not for sleeping.

And lastly, Tesla has sent out invitations for the grand opening of the battery-producing Gigafactory. It'll be on July 29th and we'll be there to show you what it's all about!

Windows Central — #DoMoreEveryDay

Windows Central Gems!

Gems is back! Or should that be the Gems are back? Who cares! All that matters is starting this coming Monday, Windows 10 Gems returns for another round of incredible apps along with a great bunch of prizes, thanks to Microsoft's generosity.

But that's the future. What about the past week? Well, there was some good news and bad news. Microsoft announced it was laying off another 1,850 employees, most of which work in Finland at the company's struggling mobile devices division. The Finnish government? Not so happy.

The good news comes from the Xbox side, on which Microsoft is riding a wave of big releases, like Overwatch to eventual hardware unveilings at E3, which is just over two weeks away.

Finally, a new build of Windows 10 for Fast Ring subscribers brings us one step closer to an official Windows 10 Anniversary Edition release.

How to check activation lock before buying a used iPhone

Posted on by Cale Hunt.
Categories: Uncategorized.

How do you check if an iPhone has been Activation Locked before you buy? Online or in person, here's what you have to do!

If you buy a used iPhone that's Activation Locked—password protected on someone else's iCloud account—it's as good as useless to you. So, save yourself some aggravation, and some wasted cash, and make sure to check the Activation Lock status of any used iPhone before you buy.

How to check Activation Lock status online

If you're purchasing a used iPhone from a website, you can verify its activation status online. Apple lets you check the activation status of any iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Apple Watch by entering the device's IMEI.

You need to ask the seller for the IMEI number. It's located on the back of the original box the iPhone came in. If they don't have access to the box, send them these instructions:

  1. Tap Settings on the Home screen.
  2. Tap General.
  3. Tap About.
  4. Swipe up until you find the IMEI number.

Once you have the IMEI number

  1. Go to www.icloud.com/activationlock on your Mac or Windows PC.

  2. Type in the device's IMEI
  3. Type in the verification code
  4. Click Continue.

If the IMEI number comes back as locked, don't buy the used iPhone.

How to check Activation Lock status in person

If you're buying your used iPhone in person, simply check to make sure Find My iPhone has been turned off.

  1. Launch Settings from the Home screen.
  2. Tap on iCloud.
  3. Tap Find My iPhone.

  4. Make sure Find My iPhone is set to Off.

It's better, though, to simply have the seller completely reset their iPhone before giving it to you. That way they can make sure all their data is safely erased and inaccessible as well.

  1. Tap Settings on the Home screen.
  2. Tap General.
  3. Tap Reset.
  4. Tap Erase All Content and Settings.
  5. Enter your Passcode.
  6. Tap Erase iPhone
  7. Enter the iCloud password associated with the iPhone to disable Activation Lock.

Once finished, Activation Lock will be disabled and the iPhone will reboot ready for you to log into and set up as yours.

Carrier and region locks

Don't forget to verify any region or carrier locks the iPhone might have. These are completely separate than the activation lock and could get between you using your iPhone on the carrier of your choice.

Apple reportedly planning huge upgrade for Siri

Posted on May 28, 2016 by Harish Jonnalagadda.
Categories: Uncategorized.

It looks like Apple is planning a huge upgrade for Siri, one that will see the voice assistant surge ahead of rivals Google Now, Microsoft's Cortana, and Alexa, the AI behind Amazon Echo. Apple acquired U.K.-based speech processing startup VocalIQ last year, and will be integrating the advances made by the company in processing natural language queries and machine learning into Siri.

According to Business Insider:

According to a source familiar with VocalIQ's product, it's much more robust and capable than Siri's biggest competitors like Google Now, Amazon's Alexa, and Microsoft's Cortana. In fact, it was so impressive that Apple bought VocalIQ before the company could finish and release its smartphone app. After the acquisition, Apple kept most of the VocalIQ team and let them work out of their Cambridge office and integrate the product into Siri.

Before Apple bought the company, VocalIQ tested its product against Siri, Google Now, and Cortana, and the results were impressive. VocalIQ's success rate was over 90%, while Google Now, Siri, and Cortana were only successful about 20% of the time, according to one source.

VocalIQ's platform is also malleable enough to be programmed for anything you want to do. One example a source gave was teaching it to successfully manage email while a user's phone was in their pocket. In theory, Apple would be able to train Siri to do everything much better using VocalIQ.

VocalIQ uses machine learning to provide context to queries, with the AI able to understand a follow-up question to a previous query. The technology can also be used for voice-controlled in-car applications, and VocalIQ may find its way into Apple's car platform as well. We should hear more about what's in store for Siri at WWDC 2016.

Flick Home Run: Tips, tricks, and cheats to help you knock ‘em out the park!

Posted on by Christine Lachance.
Categories: Uncategorized.

How do you score higher in Flick Home Run? Here are our top tips!

Flick Home Run is a game of accuracy and just a little bit of luck. With a single flick, launch baseballs into the blue and watch your score improve as you learn to master the pitches coming out of right field. Check out our helpful hints to take you from the minors to the majors!

.99 cents - Download now

Pay attention to ball behavior

Not every ball that is pitched will be a regular baseball. Most of them have colorful little faces that indicate how they will behave once they've crossed the center line.

Knowing if a ball is going to be heavy and hard to hit or loopy and out of control will help you flick it as far as you can with some level of accuracy. From time to time, you'll have gold multipliers thrown your way. Hit these as far as you can! The distance travelled will be multiplied by the number on the ball and this can mean hundreds of points for one flick.

Know what's coming at you

Touch the sunglasses button to see what kind of ball is coming at you. At each step of the game, you only have three ball previews, so use them wisely. This will come in handy as you move up through more challenging steps because you won't always be faced with regular baseballs.

Those few seconds it takes to check what's coming next are worth it and you can earn the ability to have more ball previews later in the game.

Aim for 100 feet to stay alive

To keep your life bar at the top of the screen from depleting, hit the ball 100 feet or more. This can be tricky with the balls that behave badly, but the fewer the feet travelled, the faster your game winds down.

To keep alive and keep earning points, 100 feet is the minimum distance to shoot for. Flick with some force and pay close attention to the direction your finger is moving in. If you release you finger too quickly, the ball will drop too soon and your game will be over.

Aim high to earn balloon points

Way out in the outfield, up in the sky are balloons. They hover at angles that are tough to hit unless you master the hard hits. The key to taking them out is to aim for the highest balloon. As your ball descends, it will take out three or four more balloons. If your ball doesn't arc, it will only take out one of the lower balloons.

Each balloon is worth 50 points and those points are added to your overall score, so make sure you aim high and take them down a few at a time. The points keep your life bar going.

Upgrade wisely

If you want upgrades, you have to earn the maximum number of points per step. You can pick from three possible upgrades:

  • Contact – Your ability to make contact when you're up to bat
  • Power – How far you're able to hit
  • Batting Eye – The number of ball previews you are allowed

It's best to choose the one that will help you with your weakest skill. If you're already supremely accurate and hit beyond 100 feet every time (lucky you) then go for the Batting Eye upgrade. Knowing what's coming at you is the best way to rack up points.

Master the Minors to win big in the Majors

The two game modes you will play in are the Minors and the Majors. In order to get into the Majors, you have to master the steps of the Minors. You replay steps until you earn enough points to either move up one step or collect on some upgrades.

Odds are, if you're not earning the upgrades, you're not moving on. The more home run trophies you earn in each step, the sooner you're going to be promoted.

The game that keeps you motivated

Flick Home Run allows you to retry your rounds of play until you have mastered your hand-eye coordination. If you want to progress through the game, you have to get better with each play.

The duration of each step will increase as you learn to hit more home runs, take out more balloons, and stock up your life bar. Just don't forget to take that seventh inning stretch!

Amazon now lets you test drive Echo’s Alexa in your browser

Posted on by Dan Thorp-Lancaster.
Categories: Uncategorized.

If you've ever wanted to try out the Amazon Echo before shelling out for one, you can now do just that right from your browser. Amazon has launched a dedicated website where you can try out an Echo simulation and put Alexa's myriad of skills to the test.

As Amazon explains, the idea was initially spawned as an experiment by developer Sam Machin during a hackathon last year. The simulation replicates the experience of interacting with the Echo's digital assistant, Alexa, with the press of a button. From Amazon:

Echosim.io lives in your browser, so anyone, anywhere can access it and test their Alexa skills. You no longer need an Alexa-enabled device to test your skills. Developers worldwide can use Echosim.io to experience Alexa. Its simplicity makes it easy for anyone to understand what an Echo is and what it does without having to explain Alexa's unique UX.

Getting started with the tool is a simple affair. All you have to do is head to the Echosim.io webpage and login with your Amazon account. From there, you simply click and hold the the on-screen button and speak your command; Alexa will do the rest.

Given that competition in the space is about to heat up in a big way thanks to Google's forthcoming Google Home — not to mention a rumored upcoming Siri-powered offering from Apple — this is a good way for Amazon to get Echo out in front of more people.

Apple Store Worker Says Staff Routinely Get Death Threats From Customers

Posted on by Tim Hardwick.
Categories: Uncategorized.
Business Insider UK this morning published a detailed interview with an alleged UK Apple retail employee that provides an intriguing insight into what it's like to work in an Apple Store.

The interview is unusual because every Apple staffer signs a confidentiality agreement on their first day in the job, which apparently prevents them from speaking publicly or announcing their new employment on social media, and even bans them from taking a selfie wearing their Apple T-shirt.

Apple-Employees
According to the veteran staffer – who remained anonymous in fear that Apple would pursue a legal action against them – Apple pays about £8 per hour in the UK (around $11.70) and staff receive no bonus incentives for sales, leaving many unable to afford the products they sell.

The worker claims that although positions in the company's stores are highly prized, Apple doesn't promote internally in the UK either, and that staff are prevented from transferring from part-time to full-time employment as a matter of policy.

"We had between five and eight store managers during my time at the store, of varying kinds," says the staffer. "Only one of them had started at Apple, the rest had been recruited from elsewhere – from, say, Dixons or HMV."
They did try to fix that with a 'Lead and Learn' program, where you train on the shop floor by acting as a manager without being a manager. We had some great people on the shop floor, people who had been there for five years, who were selling more than anyone else. But they were still just specialists or experts [two of the lowest ranked positions at Apple].

As far as I’m aware — and I’m still in contact with these people — no-one on this programme has been promoted to manager. There are other jobs in-store that can earn you more money, but they’re technical jobs, like working at the Genius Bar, which a lot of people absolutely hated because you’re dealing with really angry customers.
According to the worker, Apple Store staff routinely face death threats from unhappy customers, and receive no benefit if they manage to sell an enterprise contract to a business customer worth hundreds of thousands of pounds.

There are some advantages to working at an Apple Store though, says the employee. Staff get a generous discount on Apple products, a 15% discount on AAPL shares, and occasional direct access to CEO Tim Cook.

Apple declined to comment when contacted by Business Insider. The in-depth interview – which also reveals what happens if you come to work carrying a Samsung phone – can be read in full here.

Best car mounts for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus

What's the best car mount for iPhone? Here's are our picks!

Your iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus does it all: maps, playlists, calls, and more. Driving safely, though, means keeping your hands on the wheel and off your iPhone. So how to you navigate, jam, and answer safely and in style? With one of these car mounts!

TechMatte MagGrip CD slot magnetic universal car mount

The TechMatte MagGrip CD offers you a place to put your iPhone while putting your virtually obsolete CD player to good use. It won't take up any dashboard or windshield real estate, so your view won't be obstructed at all. Your viewing angle is completely adjustable so you can clearly see maps for navigation.

A strong magnetic plate attaches to the back of your iPhone and then sticks to the mount, even through a case, so you're not constantly removing the case every time you get into the car. A magnet also means a cradle-free design, so all of your iPhone's ports are available and none of the screen is blocked. If you want a car mount that's fuss-free, TechMatte is the one you're looking for.

Logitech Drive One-Touch smartphone car mount

If you prefer a dashboard or windshield mount, you need to consider Logitech Drive One-Touch. With one quick twist, it mounts to your dashboard or your windshield, and it can be removed just as easily. This mount is ideal for those who use multiple vehicles and need the car mount to transfer easily; it's also great for single vehicle households with multiple drivers.

Your iPhone will stay securely in view thanks to the magnetic universal adapter, which works well through most cases. The only downside is that Logitech only supports horizontal or vertical placement. It does not turn, swivel, or offer an alternate angle. As long as you are satisfied with your iPhone's position, this won't be an issue, but it's good to know in advance.

TechMatte MagGrip air vent magnetic universal car mount

TechMatte's air vent mount is inexpensive and well-reviewed, so you may actually end up buying one for all your favorite drivers. It even doubles as a kickstand for your iPhone when you take it out of the car. It's like getting two gadgets for the price of one.

The TechMatte MagGrip clips easily onto most air vents and keeps your iPhone easily in sight. No dashboard or windshield space is taken up and no view is obstructed. The mount itself doesn't swivel, but your iPhone is easy to reposition in spite of powerful magnets. TechMatte's mount is as easy and as simple as it gets.

iOttie Easy One Touch 3 (V2.0) universal car mount phone holder

To avoid magnets and adapters altogether, take a look at the iOttie Easy One Touch. With one push of your finger, your iPhone locks into place, and with another push, releases. This new and improved version has extra space for larger phones while keeping the side arms minimal and away from your screen. The sticky gel pad on the base and included dashboard pad make it easy to attach the mount to your your dashboard or your windshield.

The telescopic arm adds another inch of space between your iPhone and the mount for better viewing. That arm also pivots up and down 180 degrees while allowing you to fully adjust the position of your iPhone. If you're on the road for hours on end and regularly switching drivers, the ability to adjust your car mount this much is absolutely necessary. iOttie is secure enough to withstand whatever bumps and turns your commute throws at you and your iPhone won't budge one bit.

Kenu Airframe +

Kenu improved on their already popular Airframe by making a version that will fit the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus as well as their cases. The expandable jaw secures your iPhone without using magnets or extra adapters, and the entire unit weighs in at one ounce. The rotating mount clip fits securely onto any air vent on virtually any make or model.

It's easy to switch your iPhone from landscape to portrait to suit the app or map you're using. Once the jaw is secured around your iPhone, that device isn't moving anywhere. The clips are so small that your iPhone looks like it's hovering in mid air. If you get into the habit of taking your Kenu with you, you can use it as a stand when you're on the go by inserting a credit or business card into the vent clips; presto, your car mount is a kickstand.

ProClip mobile mounting solutions

For a completely customized car mount, direct your attention to ProClip. They offer a two-part car mount solution that you customize for your specific needs. Firstly, you select your iPhone 6s or 6s Plus from the menu, and indicate whether or not you want to factor in the case you use. You'll be given a variety of six to eight images to choose from with specs and details for each phone holder offered.

Once you've decided on your iPhone holder, you move on to the custom mounting base. Select the kind of base you want (dashboard, pedestal, and so on) and select the vehicle you drive. The bases you will be selecting from are designed to snap into the seams of your dashboard or grip the necessary panels, so no sticky pads or bolts are necessary. Eliminate the guessing by customizing every aspect of your car mount and know that it's going to fit just the way you want it to.

Ram Mount Universal X

The Ram Mount Universal X is as heavy duty as they come. Made from composite and stainless steel, this mount could outlast your vehicle. On rough terrain like construction sites or off road adventures, your iPhone will stay in place and the industrial strength suction cup will stay exactly where you installed it. The installation is quick, clean, and ideal for windshield mounting.

The arm and iPhone holder are adjustable to any angle that works for you. The spring loaded holder has rubber coated tips so your phone won't be damaged, and even the thickest case will fit. It's easy to lock your iPhone in and just as easy to remove it. In spite of the heavy construction of the overall mount, it doesn't obstruct your view in the slightest.

The bottom line

Before buying a car mount for your iPhone, take a few things into consideration. How many drivers will be using it? What are your daily commutes like? Where do you see the car mount fitting in: a vent, the dashboard? Know what you're looking to get in terms of benefits before you make the purchase.

If you've got a favorite car mount for your iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus, even if it didn't make this list, let us know all about it in the comments!

Android wins again: Future features beat Apple every time

Posted on by The Macalope.
Categories: Uncategorized.

Android’s future is always so bright it must certainly be wearing shades, must it not?

Writing for the reportedly confirmed bipedal life forms over at Business Insider, Rafi Letzter says “This is about to be the best reason to switch from iPhone to Android.” (Tip o’ the antlers to Bradley B Bear and Nathan Larsen.)

What is “this”? Is it peer pressure? A dare resulting from your problem binge drinking? A desire to have your family released by the open source splinter cell holding them hostage?

We could speculate pointlessly all day or just read on.
