Did you know you could purchase accessories that pair with mobile apps to totally transform your mobile device? It’s true! With the right accessories you can make your phone more useful and more fun! Here are a few fun accessories with corresponding mobile apps that allow you to transform your device into something even cooler than it already is:
The AppToyz Blaster lets you fight aliens using an iPhone machine gun attachment. Using the gun with the corresponding app helps you get a more immersive experience than you would get playing a shooter game without a gun attachment. The device itself is bright orange and white, made of plastic and applicable for a 3GS or 4TH gen iPhone. The iPhone works as a sight on the gun, letting you truly believe you’re battling aliens. The attachment is currently available for $32.29.
Etch A Sketch has been around for 50 years, but now it’s on iPhone. Indulge your inner child by slipping your iPhone into the Etch A Sketch case, turning on the app and creating wacky designs. The product isn’t just for fun, either - it also helps protect your iPhone. Of course, you can also download and run the Etch A Sketch app without the case, but it wouldn’t be nearly as whimsical. The case is currently available for $24.99 and the app is $2.99 in the App Store.
The Pico Genie lets you show your iPhone display on a screen or wall. It’s the perfect app for a professional on the go; you don’t have to worry about carrying a laptop or using a phone that’s larger than you’d like. Instead, just slip the iPhone into the Pico Genie and get ready to show the whole room your display. As a bonus, the Pico Genie will actually help charge your phone. It can work without apps, but its functionality is increased with various apps to better display photos, web pages and maps.
These are just a few of the accessories available that really shine when paired with mobile apps. Buy your favorite and get ready for a good time. Just make sure to check that you have a compatible mobile device before you hit “Buy”. Some attachments only work with a specific iPhone or Android models and aren’t compatible with any other type of phone.
Experienced runners know you can’t just hop off the couch and head for the starting line of the Boston Marathon. Training keeps you limber, keeps you healthy and ensures you can keep up with the competition once you’ve got your number pinned on. iPhone apps can help you improve your training, track your progress and even add a little extra fun to your workout.
Maybe you’re not experienced, but have dreams of pulling on track pants, lacing up your shoes and making it from the first step to the finish line. These apps can help get you out of the house by motivating you and guiding you through your first months as runner. Much cheaper than a personal trainer or a GPS-enhanced runner’s watch, mobile apps built for runners are a great way to start your training regimen.
RunKeeper Pro is a popular runner’s app that tracks your progress using the GPS-ability of the iPhone. It costs $9.99 for the full app. There’s a free one you can start out with, but it doesn’t include voice commands. As you run, the voice lets you know whether you’re hitting the pace you’ve set or going too fast or slow. It helps keep you on track for the long haul and makes sure you don’t burn yourself out in a sprint. RunKeeper Pro collects data about your pace, distance and calories burned then uploads it to a website where you can track your progress over time. You can also download RunKeeper Pro for Android, Windows Phone and Nokia.
Ghost Race Pro also tracks your time, but it offers a little fun, too. Instead of running your normal route alone, try racing against yourself. Ghost Race’s tracking feature can map one of your runs, then set it up so you run against yourself on the same route in real time, always knowing where you are compared to yourself on a previous day. If you’re lagging behind your usual time, Ghost Race can help provide the motivation to get a little extra speed in your step. It’s $0.99 in the app store and is also available on Android.
Interval Run is another program with voice commands. It’s great for those times when you don’t want to look down at your phone as you run. Since it offers interval-training programs, it’s an easy way to mix up your daily workout routine. There are preprogrammed runs; you can also create your own interval program. Best of all, you can hear the feedback over the music you’re playing through your iPhone. It’s only $1.99 in the app store.
So install a new app, stretch, grab some water and head out the door. It’ll be like running with a small, electronic friend who happens to know a lot about distance, speed and being a successful runner. Are there any running apps that you would recommend?
ViewboxTM is a newly released application for the iPad that allows users easy mobile access to view, share, and present medical images. Created with the radiologist and medical professional in mind, ViewboxTM is an incredibly convenient tool allowing easy portability for your teaching file images in the workplace as well as the classroom. Say goodbye to the tedious days of using storage devices for your images because ViewboxTMjust made utilizing the iPad the most efficient to view and present anonymous medical images for teaching purposes.
ViewboxTM offers radiology trainees and other medical professionals a method to create and share image teaching files which are the bedrock of radiology learning and education. In light of the recently reported controversy surrounding alleged cheating by U.S. radiology trainees and purported use of recalled exam questions, ViewboxTMoffers trainees an alternative method to create and share image teaching files with the ability to link and reference their files with peer reviewed sources via technology built-in to the application.
Users will now be able to search, view, and edit images from several sources on their iPad including their Apple Photo Stream accounts through the iCloud, Google Picasa, Dropbox, and the Radiology Society of North America’s MIRC Server. ViewboxTM offers mobile teaching files, image viewing, and presentation needs by employing unique proprietary technology. There is no other application currently available that allows the user to access data from multiple sources, and view it within seconds to be viewed offline as well. One can share anonymized images with colleagues via the built-in email sharing feature, compare multiple images in up to four virtual viewboxes, or share images with an audience using presentation mode.
Aside from teaching purposes, using a laptop for medical use is simply not realistic anymore because hospitals and medical offices are busy environments. Doctors and nurses are constantly on the go and it can be a challenge to carry a computer from one place to the other. ViewboxTM for the iPad allows a convenient way for medical professionals to share images with patients and can enhance the doctor-patient relationship by helping patients understand what is going on with their physical health.
ViewboxTM by Viewbox Holdings, LLC is a free Apple iTunesTM application now available in the iTunes store. The demographic for ViewboxTM includes medical professionals who require access to medical imaging in any way, specifically within the field of radiology; however, practitioners and students of orthopedics, general surgery, cardiology, neurosciences, dermatology, pathology, dental imaging, and veterinary imaging will find the technology useful. Please visit www.viewbox.net for more information.
