  • Proper Water Damage Care

    We know you hate it when your phone slips out of your fingers and into that puddle of water.  Or when you forget it in your pocket and it goes through the washer.  There is nothing worse for your device than water.  Our water damage repair specialists have an excellent reputation of restoring soaked devices, but not every device can be saved.  A lot of it comes down to what you do right after the device gets wet.

    Should you accidentally drench your favorite device, there are a few steps that will help minimize the damage.

    1. Don't attempt to turn the device on.  If it's miraculously still on, turn it off.  Continuing to use your iPhone or iPad after it's had water damage will cause more problems than a few days' use is worth.
    2. If you can, remove the battery.  Don't pry open your iPhone or iPad unless you're experienced, but removing the battery will prevent a lot of corrosion.
    3. If you dropped your device in chlorinated or salt water, try putting it in an alcohol bath. (Rubbing alcohol, scotch won't help you here)  This will help draw out the worst of those particles that can cause a lot of problems.
    4. Send it to an iPhone repair specialist right away.  Waiting to send off your device will only give that water more time to seep into the vital parts of your iDevice, giving it time to corrode valuable connections.  One tip our top water damage specialist gives is putting your device in front of a fan before you package it up.  It won't dry it out or solve your problems, but it can help minimize the damage.

    Following these easy steps will help cut down on your device's damage and might end up saving your favorite toy.

  • Stop SOPA and PIPA

    If you spend a lot of time on the internet, you have probably heard of SOPA and PIPA, two bills before Congress that could severely limit our internet freedoms. Though many of the main co-sponsors have abandoned the bill in the last few days, your congressmen still need to hear from you. Many of the largest internet companies have gone black today to help spread the word. You can go to Google or Wikipedia (which has gone totally dark), to learn more about how you can let your local congressmen know that you don't support SOPA and PIPA.  Sign the petition and spread the word.

    Learn more about the bills in the video below.

  • App Recommendation - Fleetly

    The New Year is almost upon us. With that comes the laborious task of removing Christmas decorations, figuring out how to pay for all the gifts we gave, and of course, New Years' Resolutions. And for most of us, that resolution usually hovers around losing that "last 10 pounds."

    For this week's app recommendation, Fleetlyis a great way to keep track of your fitness goals for the year. Log your routines, join challenges with other users, and get support from your friends. You can even log in with your Facebook account so you can get help from those that don't use the app. Fleetly provides a bit of negative motivation, letting you know when you've lost training points and helping you build them back up.

    Works for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch, so you can sync your account across all your devices.

  • App Recommendation - SkyDrive

    Today Microsoft released their SkyDrive app for iOS. With 25GB of free storage in cloud storage, you can sync documents across web browsers and your iOS devices. It also makes uploading a ton of pictures a whole lot easier, because you just have to add them to the SkyDrive, then download them onto any computer with a web browser.  You can share files with friends, and it lets you choose whether they can view or edit. The interface is easy to use and understand, and you cannot beat 25GB for free.  You just need a Windows Live ID, but you can use your own email address to make it easy.

  • A Couple Apps to Share

    We don't just fix iPhones. We spend plenty of time on our own devices.

    Morfo LogoSenior Technician Taylor admits to spending most of his weekend playing with Morfo 3D Face Booth. I wish I was kidding. But check out the hilarious video below. It's pretty self-explanatory of what the app does. Taylor says it's the best $1.99 he's ever spent. What's more funny is watching him dance while watching the video he's made. I'll have to rig up a hidden camera to catch that gem.

     


    We also discovered Fake Conversation this week. It lets you arrange a fake phone call to your iPhone. Great to get yourself out of that boring family function or just to impress girls at the bar (there's a Doctor conversation that tells you what to say so you sound professional).
