Apple is very well known for keeping the lid on the specs for their proprietary charging ports. So much so, that this is the first ever MFI-approved product that has been created by a non-Apple company EVER. A portable power bank for your iPhone and iPad, the BoostCharge Power Bank Lightning 10K is a 10,000mAH battery with two USB Type A Ports and an additional Lightning port. We love the sleek design, black or white finishing and minimalist aesthetic to pair nicely with Apples sleek line of portable devices. Available for pre-order now from Belkin.
Oddball Drum Machine
We all know about the simple office pastime of bouncing tennis balls off the wall. Much to the chagrin of our coworkers, you can now use the Oddball to make unique drum beats and loops by doing just that. This fun little device is currently funding on Kickstarter and is down-sized drum machine thats been encased in a bouncy ball that you can throw, drop and bounce to activate. The Oddball acts as the percussion trigger and the internal sensors can translate the noises via Bluetooth to the Oddball mobile app. Intensity is control by the force of the bounces and for the more advanced audio mixers the drum machine can act as a MIDI controller used in apps like Pro Tools, Ableton, Logic Pro and Garageband. The ball charges over USB and ships with the companies own app that is preloaded with multiple effects and audio tools.
Moment Pro Camera App
Now that just about every new smartphone off the shelf has a DSLR-killing camera, the concept of third party apps to take and edit pictures has sort of fallen out of use. After all, if your pics come hot off of the default camera app looking great, there’s no longer a need for fifty filters or major edits to make them look presentable anymore. However, if you’re looking to go the extra mile these days and produce some of the best pictures possible on a mobile device, the Moment Pro camera App might just be what you’re looking for. In fact, one of the things that DSLRs have over some of the best smartphone cameras, especially the iPhone, is the ability to customize all of the settings. The Moment Pro Camera App gives you the power to change every setting from iso, to focus, to white balance, on your mobile device, and that’s alongside all the other editing and processing features you would expect from a camera app. So maybe the iPhone X camera really is a DSLR-killer, if used in combination with this handy app.
