There may be a lot of keyboard cases for the iPad out on the market, but there are not very many cases for its smaller counterpart, the iPad mini. The main problem is fitting all of those keys into such a compact area. Today, ZAGG announced the launch of two new keyboard cases for the iPad mini that promise to be the most versatile on the market.
In an age when we are consuming massive amounts of plastic, paper, and other materials, it is great to see a company finding a way to make something old into something new. Station Supply Company started by making iPhone skins out of fire hoses. Today, the accessory maker offers three different lines of covers for both iPhones and iPads. The most recent is the Life Raft collection repurposed from rubber emergency boats from a now-defunct airline.
I can never resist an iOS game that offers up bright, cheery graphics and adorably endearing characters, so from the moment I opened up Mr. Crab I was hooked. The visuals are incredibly impressive, which is no surprise because this game comes from Illusion Labs, the developers behind other fantastic titles like Touchgrind and Touchgrind BMX.
In Mr. Crab, which is a fast-paced platform-style arcade game, you will play as the titular character, making your way to the top of a continually rotating sand castle while snapping up pearls and rescuing baby crabs.
In Apple’s second quarter earnings call today, the company announced its fiscal results for the quarter ending March 30, 2013. Revenue, again hit a record high, even in the midst of the company’s biggest stock drop since 2011.

It’s Monday, and once again that means we get to talk about the App Store’s Editor’s Choice. Last week, Dungeon Hunter 4 was honored with the Editor’s Choice selection and this week, Fish Out Of Water has its turn.
Fish Out Of Water is the newest game from Halfbrick Studios, which is the team that brought us hit apps like Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride. Like the aforementioned apps, Fish Out Of Water is sure to be an instant hit, featuring bright, colorful graphics and simple but fun gameplay.
The gameplay in Fish Out Of Water can be described as skipping stones. Have you ever stood on a lake and tossed a smooth stone across the water to see how many jumps you can score? That’s the principle in FOOW, but instead of stones, you’re using fish.
Yesterday, Facebook updated its official app to include a few new features to make social networking even more convenient. The biggest update is the addition of chat heads. This new feature allows users to keep chatting from anywhere in the app. Now, you can talk to your high school buddy while looking at pictures of your sister’s cats.
The new update allows you to continue chatting while you are browsing in Facebook. If you receive a chat, a bubble with their picture will show up in the upper right corner of your app. To start the conversation, tap the bubble and a chat window will float above the screen. To go back to browsing, tap off of the chat window. The bubble will go back into the corner. When a new message appears, you’ll hear a notification and an alert badge that will show you the number of new messages you have received.

Welcome back to another week of PadGadget Photobooth, my weekly column that features an array of useful photography apps and accessories. Last week, I highlighted an iPad app that I’ve been using for photo taking inspiration – the Photography Assignment Generator. This app offers up hundreds of shot ideas, so if you’re in need of a little photo help, make sure to check it out.
This week I thought I’d share a fun (and free) photo editing app that I was quite impressed with – Repix. With Repix, you can paint filters onto specific parts of your photos, combining effects in hundreds of fun ways. Repix was one of Apple’s App Store Editor’s Choice picks that we highlighted earlier this month, but I wanted to give a more in-depth look at the app, which is a solid photo editing choice.
