Iron Man Mark V Armor Suitcase Power Bank is Super

Iron Man Mark V Armor Suitcase Mobile

So this Mark V armor suitcase-inspired power bank won’t be able to give Iron Man a boost when he needs one, but it’ll let you charge up your phone, tablet, and other mobile devices when you’re out of juice. It’s a 1/4 scale prop replica of the suitcase that packs 12,000 mAh of power for your convenience. It’s also equipped with two USB ports so you can recharge two devices at a time.

The mobile fuel cell is compatible with devices that have USB-compatible charging cables, which means most mobile phones, tablets, and music players should work with it.Continue Reading

‘Moments’ App Shows You How Much Time You Spend on Your Phone

Moments App

 

How much time do you spend on your phone in a day? A few minutes? Half an hour? Probably more, especially if you use instant messaging or check for emails a lot during the day. Giving you the exact figure is Moments, an app which tracks how long you used your phone and where you were when you were using it. It uses the collected data to build a map to show you the most frequent location of use.

If you feel like your usage is excessive, then you can set a maximum daily limit for your phone usage using the app. When your time’s up, an alert pops up letting you know it’s time to put your phone down and start living (and interacting) in the real world. It’s available for iOS and can be downloaded from iTunes for $3.99.

It’s sleek, it’s small, and it’s compatible with Windows and OSX computers and iOS tablets. PocketScan provides instant feedback while it’s scanning and can scan up to 400dpi.
