Halide: Everything you need to know!

What is Halide, and why is everyone all over the internet talking about it?

What do you get when a prominent ex-Apple designer and former Twitter engineer join forces? A kick-ass camera app called Halide.

Sara Perez, TechCrunch:

The idea is to offer a variety of high-end tools for taking quality photographs, but packaged in a way where accessing those controls via gestures becomes like muscle memory – similar to using the dials on a camera.

The developers’ website goes into detail as to why Halide was created and it essentially boils down to the fact that current mobile phone cameras are exquisite, but that just don’t feel like the same quality as shooting with a DSLR.

Long story short, ”It’s a premium camera for your iPhone.”

Take more efficient notes with Bear 1.5

Bear’s latest update brings new customization capabilities, archiving, and more.

Attention, avid note-takers: version 1.5 of popular note-taking and writing app Bear is rolling out today, offering a handful new features that the company hopes will make taking digital notes more efficient than ever before.

According to the developer’s blog post, the most fun change to the app is perhaps is the ability to pick your own TagCons for any and all tags. If you’ve never used Bear before, TagCons are the little icons that appear next to popular tags in the app’s sidebar. Prior to now, TagCons couldn’t be switched from the default for each tag. With this update, however, you can choose from 169 TagCons (80 of which are new), connecting your notes’ tags with the image you’d most like them associated with. This is great for visual thinkers who benefit from tethering information to images — the customization allows for easier mental categorization and less dissonance between a topi…

Best Workout Headphones for iPhone and Apple Watch in 2018

Though no wireless workout headphone set is perfect, the Jaybird X3s are pretty close.

Best overall

Jaybird X3

See at Amazon

Jaybird’s wireless headphones have long been a favorite of the iMore staff and workout fiends alike, and the X3 is no exception. The $129.99 wireless neck-cord set offers 8 hours of play time, with a fifteen-minute quick charge to add an extra hour. It has both a slightly better fit and better audio quality than our budget pick, though that better fit comes at the expense of using a custom charging clip in lieu of a traditional micro-USB plug.

Bottom line: Jaybird’s X3 headphones are the wireless workout headphones to beat.

Status: Released October 2016 (X3); no successor.

Why the Jaybird X3 headphones are the best

The best wireless workout headphones you can buy.

These days, there are headphones for just about every activity, and working out is no exception. Bluetooth-connected workout headphones have come a long way from the days of 3-hour play t…

These iOttie car mounts have wireless charging pads built in for just $34

Safely charge in the car.

Odds are you’ve heard of iOttie’s awesome car mounts in the past, but did you know the company also sells some with wireless charging capabilities built in? They may sound expensive, but right now at Amazon they are on sale for 32% off, which drops the price down to just $33.95. There are two different options available, one which goes into a CD slot and one which clips into your vehicle’s air vents. Obviously, if your vehicle doesn’t have a CD player, you won’t be able to pick this option, and the air vent one is pretty universal.

Of course, you’ll need to have a compatible phone, like the iPhone X, Samsung Galaxy S9, or similar. The cigarette plug has a built-in USB port as well, so you can charge another device via a USB cable while wirelessly charging your main phone.

Both options were released back in February and have never dropped in price before this deal, so don’t miss out.

How to make your amiibo more portable

amiibo must be loved, cherished, and taken with you and your wonderfully portable Nintendo Switch.

So you have a Nintendo Switch. And you love it. And the best thing about your Nintendo Switch is that you can take it from the charging dock, slide it into your bag, and take it to the park, on an airplane, or to one of those ever-popular rooftop wine parties. Your friends have gathered around your Switch with glasses of Merlot and you’re about to show them how to scan in Epona in Breath of the Wild, but when you open your bag, chaos! You have 20+ amiibo all jumbled together, falling over one another, and by the time you find your Smash Bros. Link, they’ve all wandered off to play 1-2-Switch with your rival, Claudia. What’s a Switch-carrying amiibo fan to do?

Make your amiibo portable, of course. Here’s how.

Buy a case
