Great Last Minute NewerTech Stocking Stuffers

Friday, December 20th, 2013 | Author:

GlobemanShoppingOK, Christmas is in less than a week, and you still have stockings to stuff. Not to worry. Not only does NewerTech have tons of options that can solve your problem, we also offer free shipping on most any order of $49 and up.

There are three main characteristics that make a perfect stocking stuffer. First of all, size is a factor because it obviously needs to fit in a stocking. Price is a consideration, because most of us have many stockings to stuff … Christmas is meant to spread cheer, not flirtations with bankruptcy. And finally, you want something that will actually be used. It’s easy to run through a discount retailer and grab hundreds of the knick-knacks they have marked down for the holidays. But lets be honest, most of those end up gathering dust, thrown away or re-gifted.

NewerTech has many products that meet all three of these requirements, but the following four would be especially great components of the perfect Christmas stocking. Article Continues…

That’s How We Scroll: NewerTech NuScribe 2-in-1 Stylus

Monday, November 18th, 2013 | Author:

PR_nuscribeSome products are simply must-haves because they are just so necessary and affordable. The NewerTech NuScribe 2-in-1 Touch Screen Stylus falls into that category. It makes life so much easier that always having one handy is a no-brainer.

For starters, if you have clumsy thumbs like me, the NuScribe makes texting and scrolling on your iPhone a lot easier. Thanks to its precision formed, soft rubber nib, navigating through my iPad and iPhone has become lot smoother. It also prevents smudging on your touchscreen. That’s a win-win.

Personally, its impact on accurate texting is particularly useful to me. My thumbs tend to type things like, “gty tgjr!” and “qgat yp?” instead of “hey there!” and “what up?” when left to their own devices. The NuScribe immediately eliminated that issue.

If you need more proof as to the NuScribe’s versatility, check out my recent app review of Adobe Ideas. I did all of the digital art in that post with the NuScribe. I realize it’s not museum worthy stuff, but it does show how well the NuScribe can handle complex tasks. Not just any stylus could perfectly capture the arrogance of Captain Kirk’s bare torso.

iOS App Review: Adobe Has A Bright Idea

Wednesday, November 13th, 2013 | Author:

Adobe IdeasAdobe Ideas is an incredibly fun digital art app. While it’s certainly not a professional level digital art tool, it makes it easy to download and instantly begin creating cool art. It’s a very intuitive program with a pretty impressive toolkit, but it would definitely benefit from a few simple tweaks.

Lets take a look at the good, the bad, and my deeply insightful suggestions to improve the program.

The Good

There is a lot to like here. First of all, it’s easy to dive right in and start drawing. Adobe Ideas is a great app for anybody looking for a cost-free introduction to digital drawing and painting. As soon as you download it, you can start creating, no matter what your skill level is.

The color palate is very impressive, offering a complete rainbow of RGB and HSB colors. There is also a convenient eyedropper tool so you don’t have to worry about picking the exact same color you used previously if you need it again. Just point the eyedropper at the desired color, click and you will have the color you need to get the job done.
