Features

John, a longtime Sprint and HTC customer, is seriously considering a move away from both of these companies. Read his editorial to find out why. Andreas also posted his first impressions of jailbreak on the iPad mini and shared why Music Studio for the iPad is great for learning how to play the piano. And if you’re annoyed with the Verizon logo on your Samsung Galaxy Note II, you can cover it up with a vinyl overlay.

Reviews

There are a number of great apps and games on Windows 8 and Windows RT, and we have reviews of two of two recent Xbox LIVE-enabled titles: Adera Episode 3 and The Gunstringer: Dead Man Running. The former is a point-and-click adventure with a great story, while the latter is an entertaining endless runner in the vein of Temple Run. We also have a review of the FlyGrip accessory which works with most devices.

Good and EVO

HTC’s financials aren’t doing well, but the company is promising to have some big camera and audio innovations this year and the lingering legal threats against the root community have finally been resolved. That being said, we want to know what your network carrier experience has been like, and you can always take your HTC EVO 4G LTE to Verizon prepaid if necessary.

The Pocketables staff is putting a renewed effort into bringing you exclusive coverage of the hottest devices and software that you can’t find anywhere else.
