My Apple Watch Fitting Appointment

So I recently came across a few pictures from when I went to the Apple Store in Las Vegas and checked out the Apple Watch. I’ve never bought one and after finding the date on these pictures, I am more and more convinced to wait until the next version of the Apple Watch. The pictures are dated April of 2015 which means it’s been 1 year ago! I’m hoping the net version is at minimum thinner and has longer battery life. That’s probably the only features I’d really like. Maybe a front facing camera for FaceTime video. So, here’s a peek at a few photos from my experience. [Read more…]

Up Coffee – Track Your Caffeine [Video]

I was looking for an app that would track my caffeine intake and sync with Apple’s Health app. Up Coffee does that and more. The app’s main focus is on how your caffeine intake will affect your sleep but it works well for tracking your intake as well. Here’s our video review of the app: [Read more…]

Lose It! – Meal & Nutrition Tracking

I’ve recently started working on what I eat and have decided to go with a Keto diet. You can learn more about it on Google but it’s basically eating meat and vegetables and not eating sugar and carbs. When doing any kind of diet that tracks calories, carbs, protein or anything else you need, I always recommend Lose It! It’s been around for a long time and I really like it’s huge database of foods. Nearly everything I’ve scanned in is already in the database. Sometime I tweak it a little to my style of measuring but it works so well. [Read more…]

iPhone SE – What is Apple’s Newest iPhone?

Typically Apple releases new iPhones in the late summer but the iPhone SE as been dropped mid-cycle. Here’s why I think why: The iPhone 5s is a popular size but it was getting too slow to run iOS 9.x. Consumers want the high end features but many liked the smaller phone. They were having to make a tough decision between size and features. Apple has eliminated that by taking an iPhone 6s and shoving it into an iPhone 5s. Now while most features are the same, here’s a list to show what is, and what isn’t. [Read more…]

Night Shift Mode – Reduce Blue Light

Night Shift is a new feature of the 9.3 software update. This mode reduces the blue light emitted from your device’s screen. According to Apple, “Many studies have shown that exposure to bright blue light in the evening can affect your circadian rhythms and make it harder to fall asleep.” [Read more…]

Geekbench 3 – iPhone Benchmark Utility

Many iOS developers lower their prices for Black Friday and some even lower them to FREE! Geekbench 3 is one worth checking out (usually $0.99). If you’re into stats and details, this app is full of it. Recently adding an iPhone 6S to our family, seeing how much faster it is than an iPhone 6 Plus. It shows a lot of stats, many I don’t really know much about what they mean. It was pretty nice to see the bump up in memory for the 6S and double the power. You can also do stats on your battery and connect it to dropbox for saving stats. Here’s a quick video showing what it looks like along with some screenshots. [Read more…]

Apple Black Friday Deals at Target

Last night we stood in a line for 5 hours for a new iPhone 6S. We were already planning on buying it and saw that if we bought it at Target we would receive a $250 Target gift card. We ended up standing in line longer than we hoped but with only one register for cell phone sales and slow responses from cell phone carriers we where there until about 3:00am. We got an iPhone 6S 64GB in space grey. I also got offered 10% off an Apple Watch at the end of the sale. They are having a lot more promotions on Apple products that run through Saturday, November 28th, 2015. Check them out here: target.com [Read more…]
