Launcher with Notification Center Widget

Launcher by Cromulent Labs lets you configure different actions you can launch directly from your iPhone's Notification Center.

This may sound boring at first but it's actually very useful. You can set it up to easily call or send a message to your significant other, or launch your navigation app (Waze for example) and have it navigate home. All with just one click!
Since this is essentially a widget that lives in your Notification Center, your actions are accessible easily no matter what you are doing with your phone. Just swipe down and click on the action you want.
Very simple and saves you a lot of time and hassle.

How to quickly change the case of a word on iPhone

Turns out that in iOS8 Apple introduced a way to easily change the case of a word on iOS devices.
It's pretty simple, once you know how to do it.

First of all highlight the word (makes sense):



Hit the shift key and you'll see your selected word in the suggested words but with a capital letter at the beginning:



Double-tap the shift key to switch to capslock
Now you'll see a suggestion with the highlighted world in all uppercase:


Also, if you want to switch the word to lowercase just select a word and in the QuickType suggestions you'll see the word in lowercase (when the shift key is off).

Thanks to this Reddit user who discovered this tip.

Rhythm Calculator

Rhythm Calculator is a tool for musicians who are learning new pieces of music and struggling with the rhythmic content.

It allows them to input the rhythm, as seen on the sheet music, and listen to it played back in perfect time and tempo.

The iOS Calculator style interface makes the app's UI instantly familiar. The musician can then play along with the app until they have mastered the rhythm.

It's a great practice tool for music students and a great teaching tool for teachers.

Rhythm Calculator costs $1.99 in the AppStore.

StillShot

StillShot is one of those basic apps that's so obvious it has to exist. Well, now it does, it was launched today.


In essence, StillShot takes any video that you have and converts selected frames from it into high quality photos.

The most obvious use of this is when you setup your camera to take a shot, everybody lines up and smiles, you click the button, and suddenly you notice that your camera is set on video mode. With StillShot you have nothing to worry about, just fire up the app, load the video, choose any frame that you want from the video, and save it as a still image.

StillShot is also useful when objects are on the move and it's hard to catch a specific moment.
Of course you can also use StillShot for capturing a special moment from a video and use it as your desktop wallpaper, to send as a photo to a friend, or even to print and frame.

The app can extract frames from any video, without any special requirements. StillShot keeps the original resolution of the video, for example on the iPhone 4s the resolution is 1080p (1920*1080px).

StillShot was created by Macademia Apps, the same guys that created the awesome GroupShot app (if you don't have that app you should definitely get it).

Solar-Powered Bikini

Everybody knows that battery life is the biggest problem with our gadgets today, especially smartphones like the iPhone. We've already seen a camp stove with USB that charges using fire and even a mask that converts the air in your breathe into electricity.

So guess what's next? A bikini of course.

Andrew Schneider, a designer from New York, designed this solar powered bikini that has a USB connector that you can use to power your different gadgets (like a phone, camera, mp3 player, etc...). It's made out of solar panels that are woven together using conductive thread.

The biggest surprise is that you can actually swim in this bikini (preferably if you are a woman). The bikini itself conducts all the electricity to your electronic devices, it doesn't store any power in the swimsuit itself, so feel free to jump in the pool while wearing it. Just remember to disconnect whatever gadget you have connected to it before you take the plunge.

The swimsuit costs £120 and he's already accepting orders now on his site.

Sphero

Sphero is part robot, part ball, and a whole lot of fun.
Actually, it's a gadget, a toy, a controller, colorful ball, and a cat toy all rolled up in one.

In short, Sphero is a cute little remote control ball which you control via apps on either your iPhone or Android.

Here's their promo video where you can see some of the cool things you can do with a Sphero:

Pretty impresssive stuff ah? It even works in water!



It’s the first robotic ball gaming device that you control with a tilt, touch, or swing from your smartphone or tablet. You can even use Sphero as a controller for on-screen gameplay. Sphero delivers a unique mixed-reality experience with single and multi-player apps that let you engage in the virtual world and play in the real one.

There are a bunch of different apps you can use with Sphero, here are some in action:

Sphero gives you over an hour of full throttle play and even charges with cable-free induction (it has a cute docking station that you just plop the ball into and it charges).

Even President Obama had a good time playing with and controlling Sphero. You can see him here playing around with it and actually saying "Excuse me, give me some space to drive my ball.":


Sphero costs $130 and you can order it online today (from their site or ThinkGeek).
