Tomes App Review (iOS)

If you are an iOS user who enjoys reading eBooks with auto-scroll, there aren't a lot of apps offering this feature. This review explores Tomes, one of the few auto-scroll reading apps for iOS. I have used Tomes regularly for more than a year, and while it has some quirks and annoying behavior, it's gotten much better with recent updates, and I prefer reading books with Tomes over any non-auto-scroll eReader app. See the rest →

DIY iPad Volume Booster Project

DIY iPad Speaker Volume Booster (Poor Man’s SoundBender)

If you've got an iPad, you know that the built-in speaker is not very loud. The speaker faces to the rear and slightly to the side of the device so the sound is not aimed directly toward you. I'm going to show you a simple speaker volume booster that works similarly to accessories like SoundBender, SoundJaw and tabAmp, but which is easy to carry with your iPad at all times, won't get lost, and won't take up any extra space. Best of all, you can make it yourself and it will cost next to nothing! See the rest →
