iPhone - Utilities

It's easy to say that one of the best aspects of the Apple iPhone is the fact that you can personalize your iPhone based on your own personality. True customization of applications is one of the greatest reasons why so many individuals are flocking to the iPhone. However, it is with the near daily introductions of new applications that makes the iPhone so amazing. If you are known for getting your point across, and not being afraid to say what is on your mind, than you will love the Marq application for the iPhone.

This application is low-tech, however, it promises to get your message across to anyone you want to. The reason why this application is called Marq is because it simulates a marquee-style. How this application works is by you typing in any message that you want, and then it is displayed in a powerful marquee-style method, which scrolls across your iPhone screen.

This is a great way to get your thoughts heard, and you can do so in a unique way. You are given the ability to change the speed of the text, the colors as well as the message field. The Marq application is a fun addition to any iPhone. However, there are other iPhone applications that serve a more practical purpose. One of these applications is the iRibbit, which is literally like having eBay on your cell phone. This amazing application allows you to not only view items that are up for bit, but they let you actually bid on items as well. If you are an avid eBayer, than you must have this application for your iPhone.

Many people are worried about using these type of applications for placing bids on eBay, especially if you eBay for a living. However, this application won first place in the eBay International Widget Contest. So, you can bid in confidence that you are getting the upmost in security, stability and simplicity. Whether you just want to look for items to purchase, or if you want to run your entire eBay store through your cell phone, you can do so with this application.

Another great feature about this application is the fact that you can also manage your watch list, by adding and removing items. This is a great application to have if you are not always able to be by your computer, but you want to make sure you don't miss out on the latest Nintendo Wii auction.

Applications are a great way to customize your iPhone, as well as create a unique and powerful way to communicate with the world around you. Whether you want to have an application that is silly and does nothing more than provide you and your friends with entertainment, or if you have a more serious purpose for these applications, such as running your eBay store. No matter why you need an application, or what type of application, you can find practically any widget for your specific needs. And it is this that makes the iPhone such an incredible tool in communication and productivity.

Weather Resistant iPhone Cases

One of the most requested accessories for the iPhone is the weather proof case. The importance of having an iPhone case that is weather proofed is extremely high, mainly because the iPhone does not have extreme amounts of protection. While it is an amazing phone with incredible capabilities, it is quite vulnerable to the elements. Thus, if you are stuck in a rain storm, you may find that your iPhone is not completely safe by simply resting in your pocket.

If you live in a city that gets decent amount of rain, or if you simply want to protect your iPhone from the outside world, than you will want to purchase an iPhone weather-proofed case. But what are the best cases for this type of protection?

If you have searched the marketplace for weather resistant iPhone cases, than you have probably noticed that many of them are bulky and, quite frankly, unattractive, while this may be true for many weather resistant iPhone cases, it isn't the truth for all of them. There is one case that is stunning, both in its appearance and also in its ability to protect your iPhone from the harshness of Mother Earth. This iPhone case is the OtterBox Defender Series, which is a smart and rugged case that will add a certain style to your iPhone. This case still allows you to have full interaction with every feature of your iPhone, including pictures, all while giving you true water-resistant technology.

It doesn't matter what type of iPhone that you currently have, whether it be the 4GB model or the 8GB model, they will both fit in this iPhone case. One of the coolest features about this iPhone case is the fact that it allows you to have full interaction with the iPhone screen, while still protecting it. This is made possible by a unique membrane that has been patented due to its unique ability to give you such accurate interactivity, while still giving you weather resistant protection.

Actually, you are getting three complete layers of protection within this case, which is much more than many other "weather resistant" cases. Another feature that makes this iPhone case so unique is the fact that it is completely wrapped in silicone, which has two great purposes.

The first purpose is to allow you to have a seamless grip on your iPhone, so you will be less likely to drop it while walking throughout your day. And the second reason the silicone is such a great feature is because it will protect your iPhone if you do accidently drop it. Normally if you drop your phone, you are scared to even look at it because you don't know if the screen is cracked, or if it is completely broke. However, because of the silicone you will have superior protection against accidental damage.

It should be noted though that the silence switch is not available to use when your iPhone is in this case. So, if you must silence your iPhone, it is suggested that you do so before you put it into the weather-proof case.

Can the iPhone connect with iPod Accessories

If you are a new owner of an apple iPhone, than you have probably not let your new cell phone leave your hands for several days. This is to be expected, however, many people have questions concerning their new iPhone and its compatibility with other electronic devices, especially those within the Apple product family. Perhaps the most widely asked question about the new iPhone's is whether or not they are compatible with other iPod accessories? While many people may think that they wouldn't be compatible, they are greatly mistaking.

All of the iPhone's are compatible with most iPod accessories, thus making your iPhone even more convenient and user friendly. But another question that many people still have is what exact iPod accessories can you use with your new iPhone? Of course, many people love to use their iPods not only for personal music enjoyment, but also to feel a party with their favorite tunes. And if you no longer carry around your iPod, but rather your iPhone, you may be worried that you aren't going to be able to connect your iPhone to the speaker system your iPod used to connect with. Yet, with all it's amazing glory, the iPhone has the same connectivity port as the iPhone, thus it will connect seamlessly to any iPod speaker systems as well as car docks.

Of course, there are some accessories that have been altered to better fit the iPhone. You are able to use standard headphones with the iPhone, however, if a call comes through, than you may experience slight difficulty taking the headphones out and answering the phone. This is why Apple has made a set of headphones that are designed to work seamlessly with the iPhone. These amazing headphones provide you with excellent sound quality, however, they also have a microphone built into the cord, thus when you receive a phone call, your song is paused and you are able to answer the phone, as well as end the call, by clicking a small button on the microphone. Another great feature about these headphones is the fact that you are able to hear your friends through more than one ear, which is a very unique, and interesting, experience.

Another reason why this iPhone headphone set is such a great accessory for your product is because it provides you with safety. How many times have you been driving throughout traffic only to miss your exit or almost hit another vehicle because you were focused on holding your cell phone? While it is advised that you never drive while talking on your phone, for working professionals, and those with a booming social life, this is not a possibility. Thus, you need a product that allows you to have both hands on the steering wheel, as well as the freedom t move your head back and forth to view all traffic around you.

With the iPhone headphones, you are able to keep your conversations moving forward, without having to worry about holding your cell phone. The added benefit of this is great because not only will you be able to talk with your business partners, or friends, in true stereo, but you are also able to focus completely on the road and not on holding your cell phone.
