Looking to own an iPhone 5 that can stand out amongst the crowds? Some zealous experimenters have proven just how effective having the metal portion of the back laser engraved can be while looking stunning in the process. Engraving works equally as well on black and white models, and carries with it a surprising precision against the device's canvas.

Second, The cover looks like I'm holding a magazine, no matter which way I hold the iPad.

The interface is simple, providing a blank slate for writing, with an option to toggle the iPhone keyboard. I was skeptical of the handwriting recognition, but I was pleasantly surprised by WritePad.
I reviewed both the iPhone and iPad versions. Details about the iPad experience are included below.

The very FIRST “App” I bought for my iPhone, when Steve and the gang decided added Apps would be allowed, was this very game - Solitaire, by Mobiltyware and I’ve been happy with it ever since.

GameHouse has developed a fun and modern twist on the classic game of marbles with its new iPad game, PartyPad - Marble Mixer. Players can compete against three opponents or play a solo game to beat the high scores.

LED Soccer is the third sport to join touchGrove's line of old-school LED games for your iPhone and iPod Touch. Continuing with their tradition of photo-realistic graphics and exact duplication of the cheesy sounds, LED Soccer looks and feels just like original LED games from your youth (or maybe your parent's youth), minus the annoyances of the flakey 9-volt battery connection.
