Winter has traditionally is a tough time to use your iPhone or iPad outside while using gloves or mittens. This week, we focus on a product that will make it possible for you to make DIY touch screen items out of just about anything, no sewing required.
I know there have got to be some people out there who are having trouble getting audiobooks they’ve downloaded on their computer onto their iPad (or iPhone). It is a fairly simple process, but Apple doesn’t make it completely clear. Even after you think you’ve properly downloaded one onto your device, you may have trouble finding it. Check out our tutorial on how to get your audiobooks onto your iPad and then where to find them once they are there.
If you subscribe to iTunes Match, there is a chance that you have experienced an issue with duplicate content on your iPad. The reason is that iTunes Match doesn’t simply replace music already on your iPad but instead adds music to your device. So, if you already had music on your iPad or you sync your music when you connect to iTunes, both versions (iCloud and local) will show up. There is an easy way to remedy this situation.
From the looks of things, Apple had another stellar Christmas. The folks at Flurry analyzed Christmas device activations and Apple crushed the competition with nearly three times as many devices activated as Samsung who was the next closest in device activations. The gap with Microsoft was even larger with Apple activating nearly nine times as many devices over the Christmas holiday.
If you are looking for a very simple do-it-yourself iPad stand project, IkeaHackers has a great selection of simple tutorials, many of which are so simple they only require a minimum amount of work. The hardest part is going to Ikea to get the items needed.
We’ve got about three weeks to finish all of our home decoration crafts and our handmade gifts before Christmas comes knocking on our doors. If you have big plans, but lack the ideas to get started, we found a great sewing project so you can make a beautiful sleeve for someone’s iPad.
A particularly interesting note about this project is that the original pattern came from Etsy seller Hypernoodle. Not only is this project handmade, but it comes from the DIY crafting community, as well. So, if you are handy with a sewing machine, you can add this project to your weekend project list.
As much as every mom loves to rock their baby to comfort them, it isn’t always easy to cook dinner, clean house, or take care of monthly bills while bouncing little Johnny to sleep. That’s why baby seats are a nice distraction for busy parents. There are so many baby seats out there that manufacturers have even mastered the electric seat. They swing on their own, vibrate to make toys giggle, and play calming music.
The MamaRoo is one such baby seat, only it sways instead of swinging. Oh, and you can control it from your iPad or iPhone, so you don’t even have to stop washing dishes in order to coo your tiny human back to sleep.
When I first started storing my credit card information in Safari Keychain, it was such a daunting task to fill out all of the information for each and every card. Numbers, expiration dates, names. It goes on forever. Plus, if you make a mistake when typing in a card number you’ve got to start all over again.
With iOS 8, Apple made it possible for you to add new card numbers to Safari Keychain just by scanning your physical credit card. We’ve got a tutorial that explains the steps to adding credit cards with your iPad’s camera on iOS 8 today.
The Toca Boca team is back with another fun and educational app for kids. This time, it’s all about food. The original Toca Kitchen was so fun that the creators decided that there needed to be more, more, more.

It’s time. The start of the major app and game discount season has begun. Every year, developers drastically drop the price of their most popular titles in order to get on the top downloads list. Apple closes up shop for the holidays and, if an app or game works its way to the top of the Top Paid apps list right beforehand, those titles stay on top until Apple comes back from holiday break.
It’s a clever marketing campaign that we, as consumers, get to take advantage of. So, if there are any games you’ve wanted all year long, but held off because they were too expensive, check out what we’ve found so far and see if the price is right today.
