Yesterday we announced the launch of our new iDownloadBlog Deals store, and we promised some epic giveaways. Today we’re kicking it off with a bang: we’re giving away a new iMac!

When the new iMac was released at the end of last year, we were all drooling over this beautiful piece of tech and well… most of us still are.  Probably the sleekest desktop computer ever made, the iMac is only a few inches thick at fattest, and slims down to razor-thin edges. We’re giving away a 21.5-inch model, boasting a 1.4 GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 Processor, as well as a 500GB hard drive and 8GB of memory.

Valued at $1,099, we’re guessing you want to win this beautiful, beautiful computer. So how do you enter? Go the giveaway page on the iDownloadBlog Deals store, and create an account!

The Stratus XL controller takes iOS gaming to the next level [review + giveaway]

By Jim Gresham on Dec 15, 2014

Since Apple announced MFi controller support for iOS games, fewer options appeared than originally anticipated. The reason for a slow response is a bit surprising. However, my point of view is slightly skewed as an iOS accessory hardware reviewer. Still, I cannot imagine why app developers would not want to build in the support. Even more shocking is the small list of hardware options.

At CES 2014, it seemed like controllers would be the new thing. Unfortunately, several companies I chatted with never released their controller. We have come a long way since January 2014 and a full year plus another six months since the MFi controller support protocol released at WWDC.

SteelSeries was one of the first companies to-market with their SteelSeries Stratus. The Stratus was an extremely small MFi controller, but perfect for on-the-go gamers. Recently, they released the Stratus XL, a full sized battle tested design, similar to a true console handheld. After settling down with the XL, it changed the way I look at iOS as a gaming platform.

Premium and Stylish Phiaton Bridge MS 500 Headphones [review + giveaway]

By Jim Gresham on Dec 8, 2014

Headphones are one of those device categories where more money does not necessarily equate to a better quality product. Many branded, read “designer,” headphones cost extra simply because they have a celebrity backing them. There is a single branded headphone line that gets most of the attention and offer a high price tag for entry.

There are ways to more intelligently choose a pair of cans. Make sure the sound is superior quality. Of course, pay attention to build quality, but sound is paramount when purchasing headphones. Start with plastic. If the entire headphone is plastic, start second guessing your purchase. Pulling the Phiaton Bridge MS 500‘s from the box was quite a rewarding experience, complete with machined aluminum, perforated leather, and red stitching. Read More

The perfect portable car mount gets bigger

By Sébastien Page on Aug 1, 2014

In our recent Kenu Airframe review, we unanimously called the portable car mount the perfect dashboard companion for your iPhone. Small, convenient, practical, and fairly inexpensive, this lightweight accessory makes mounting your phone on a car dashboard a quick and easy thing, as it will secure virtually any device with a screen size of up to 5 inches.

But what happens if you have a bigger device?

With rumors of a larger 5.5″ screen iPhone 6 looming above us, and with the proliferation of larger smartphones all around, the folks at Kenu have decided to address the demand, and recently released the Airframe+, a device exactly similar in form and function to its smaller version, but with more size to accommodate bigger screens.
