Top 5 iPhone 5 Cases You Need to Check Out!

Written by iHospital. Posted in Accessories, iHospital iV

iphone 5 casesApple’s brand new iPhone has inspired plenty of brand new iPhone 5 cases! 

Apple fans have fallen madly in love with the iPhone 5 since it first hit stores earlier this year on September 21, 2012.  The iPhone 5 comes with a plethora of updated features including a lightning fast A6 processor, crystal clear graphics, a longer lasting battery, iOS 6 and quick LTE connectivity.  Aside from these amazing updates, the iPhone 5 comes with something the previous iPhone 4S didn’t, an upgraded look and design.  It didn’t stray too far, it’s still the same shape but the iPhone 5 is leaner, longer and thinner with a 4-inch display.   The iPhone 5 has a new aluminum back panel which increases durability, but take it from us, you still need the protection of an iPhone 5 case.

Diptic – iTunes App of the Week Review

Written by iHospital. Posted in Accessories

Diptic app reviewiPhone and iPad Application – Diptic – FREE – 4 IV’s

What is Diptic?

Diptic is a photo application designed by Peak Systems for the iPhone and iPad.  It also happens to be this week’s “App Store App of the Week”.

What did you like about Diptic?

This is a nicely designed application that allows people to frame several photos into one custom designed photo.  This application may take up hours of your time depending on how much you love photography.

Diptic comes preloaded with 24 layouts.  For $0.99 extra you expand the number of layouts to 52.  The default layouts are square and the expanded layouts can be adjusted.    Using Diptic is simple. After you decide which layout you’re going to use it’s time to start adding pictures.  You can either take some new pictures, add them from your photo album, add them from Facebook, or select them from Flickr.  Then it’s time to start editing.  You can pinch and pull the image to get the right the size.  You can also edit the saturation, brightness, border color and much more.  The best part is playing around with the 14 filters which is very similar to our beloved Instagram.

Here are some other features:

  • You can adjust border color and width
  • Create rounded corners
  • Shake to clear functionality on every screen
  • Send Diptic photos directly to Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and many more different networks
  • High resolution options
  • iPad 3 Retina Display
  • Random layout option for when you can’t decide

What didn’t you like about Diptic?

The most common complaint we get about Diptic is that there aren’t enough layouts that come with the free edition.  Other than that, everyone loves it!

Where can we get it?

Download this application for free this week in the App Store. After this week, it will go back to being $0.99.

BookBook for iPhone

Written by iHospital. Posted in Accessories

Book Book Case AccessoryiPhone Accessory: BookBook for iPhone – $59.99 US – Score: 4 IV’s

What is the BookBook and what do you like about it?

The BookBook for my iPhone 4 is awesome!  This case serves as a wallet, and a protective iphone case. On the left side you have multiple slots for credit cards, a window slot for your ID, and a pocket underneath for miscellaneous items. On the right side you have a housing area for your iPhone to be secured. A leather strap over the top prevents your iPhone from sliding free. The BookBook is made with a high quality leather with some nice gold-embossed features that looks like a small vintage book. This case is sure to get the attention and envy of anybody that see you with it.

The most valuable benefit of carrying the BookBook is the comfort of less things in my pockets.

Why is the BookBook great for forgetful people like me?

Purchasing BookBook combines your wallet and iPhone into one neat package.  Now you can use Apple’s Find my iPhone application to find your wallet wherever you might have left it!  It’s like you have your own Apple-designed GPS for your wallet!

What didn’t you like?

The only thing I don’t like about the BookBook is that it doesn’t have a hole for the Camera and Flash.  I should also note the BookBook is only compatible with iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S.

Where can I purchase the BookBook for my iPhone?

You can purchase the BookBook from the twelve south website here.

Logitech Mini Boombox

Written by iHospital. Posted in Accessories

Logitech Mini Boombox
iPod, iPhone and iPod Touch Application: Logitech Mini Boombox – $99.99 – Score: 4 IV’s
What is the Logitech Mini Boombox?
The Logitech Mini Boombox is a bluetooth, portable audio system that works with your iPhone, iPod Touch and/or iPad. It’s one of the most portable, compact speaker systems on the market.  It measures 2.3 by 2.8 by 4.6 inches and weighs 8 ounces – extremely “mini”.
What did you like about it?
This speaker dock is very ergonomic and has a unique, modern look. It fits in almost any place and provides great sound at an affordable price. I really liked the built in battery which allows the user to unplug the dock and use it on the go. The built in battery last quite a while, i used the dock for about 3 hours cranked all the way up before it hit the reserve battery. This dock’s great sound is due to the 8 drivers built in and reflective drivers built into the back. The Logitech Mini Boombox can double as a speakerphone for Bluetooth-enabled devices too. Pretty cool!
What didn’t you like about it?
The dock will not charge your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad while on battery power and there is no airplay support. It also lacks deep bass and distorts sound at extremely high volumes.  Finally, the charging cable is very short.
Where can you buy it?
You can purchase the Logitech Mini Boombox online at the Logitech store here.

Review by D.i.D. Doctor of iDevice Eric Jablon

What is the iPhone Carabiner Clip?

The iPhone Carabiner Clip is a nifty iPhone accessory that allows you to latch your iPhone onto a belt buckle, strap or purse.  It comes with a hefty leather strap that is built to endure heavy duty use.

Why do I need it?

The tagline for this neat accessory is “Never miss a picture with this sturdy clip!”.  Your iPhone is easily accessible AKA not in the bottom of your purse for the ladies out there.  It’s also the perfect gift for you’re not so coordinated friends that tend to drop everything.

How do you use it?

It’s easy to start using the iPhone Carabiner Clip – just secure it to the bottom of your iPhone with two included screws.

Will it ruin my phone? Can I take it off?

No. The iPhone Carainer clip won’t damage your iPhone and you can take it off anytime.

What’s your favorite part of the iPhone Carabiner Clip?

I like that this clip gives you the ability to clip the phone to yourself or something without losing the dock port. I also like how secure it is by how its hold on to the phone by screws and not just the dock port.
