iPad Art: Hipster

Hipster by HG Berk

Today’s featured iPad painting is ‘Hipster’.

It’s the work of another of our long-time favorite iPad artists, Helene Goldberg. I love how this image manages to keep Goldberg’s abstract style while also being quite a clear portrait of  a prototype hipster. It’s just fun to look at I think.

You can see lots more of Goldberg’s lovely iPad artwork at her hgberk Flickr stream.

And of course you can see more incredible iPad paintings at our own iPad Art section.

Deals: Universal Car Mount for iPhone at 50% Off

Universal Car Mount

Today’’s featured iPad Insight deal is the Universal Car Mount: Drive Hands Free w/ A 360° Adjustable Fit. It’s available now at 51% off – for $14 rather than its standard price of $29.

Here’s the Intro and elevator pitch on this one:

We’re all guilty of it, the “cellphone-in-the-lap” move while driving, whether we’re reading directions, sending a text, or talking on speakerphone. Avoid the temptation with the Universal Car Mount – the perfect accessory for any car owner.

It easily adheres to your car’s windshield so your phone is prominently displayed in your line of sight while driving, and the mount can rotate 360 degrees to face all passengers, either in the front seat or in the back of the vehicle.

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT

Dial your phone, talk, and hang up without ever moving your hands away from the steering wheel.

Not only is it unsafe to hold your phone while driving, it’s also now illegal in most states. Don’t give the police any reason to pull you over, navigate and talk without taking your attention away from the road.

Plus, installation is a snap and the fit is universal (duh) so any driver can use it.

TOP FEATURES

  • Universal holder for a variety of cell phone types, including iPhone, iPod and Android phones.
  • Car mount is equipped with 360 degree rotation capabilities
  • Color: Black
  • Material: ABS

iPad App of the Week: 80 Days

80 Days iPad app

Great apps are a big part of what makes for a great mobile (or even desktop) device. As iPad users, we’ve been fortunate that right from the start there have been rich pickings when it comes to great iPad apps – and we continue to be spoiled for choice when it comes to finding excellent apps for just about any purpose. Our weekly picks for iPad App of the Week celebrate some of these, and appear here every Saturday.

This week’s pick is 80 Days, an incredibly entertaining interactive fiction game where you play as world traveler Phileas Fogg’s faithful valet. It offers 150 cities to explore and a wealth of decisions to make in order to carve your own path around the globe.

Here’s a little more background on the game via its App Store page:

Playing as Phileas Fogg’s loyal valet, Passepartout, you must balance your master’s health, your finances, and the time, as you choose your own path from city to city all the way around the world. Bribe your way onto early departures, but don’t let yourself go bankrupt or you’ll be sleeping rough and begging for aid! Trade items for profit, and collect the equipment for the conditions you’ll face: but too much luggage will slow you down…
