Best deals of the week: Galaxy Tough Armor, Android programming, speakers, and more
You may have missed some sweet tech discounts in our new Pocketnow Deals store recently. Easy to do. But don’t worry, they’re still available. Here’s a little catchup:
If you’re the proud owner of Samsung’s flagship phone, chances are you want to keep it in good shape. This bundle should do the trick. It includes an air-cushioning case from Spigen, a scratch resistant screen protector from GLAS.t, and an LCD cleaning kit from Steinheil.
Keeping the Android theme going…Google’s OS continues to grow at a brisk pace, so if you have an idea for an app, the Play Store is a good place to publish. This course is a great way to start learning the necessary skills, covering app components, APIs, resources and user interfaces. And it doesn’t matter if that meant nothing to you, because it takes things nice and slow.
Singing in the rain is a nice idea, but maybe it’s better to stick with singing in the shower. This little speaker is the ideal sidekick, both because it’s water resistant, and because it has a suction cup, to it can stick to the walls of your shower. Plus, it has a microphone, so you can take calls and speak to Siri. Very neat.
One for the Apple folks now. Simply put, the PhoneSuit battery-case adds 2 days extra juice to your handset. It also has a quick-charge option, which fills up an iPhone in 2 hours, and it provides pretty robust protection. Plus, it’s Mfi-certified.
The Sensordrone is a keychain fob packed with 11 sensors which send live data straight to your phone. Sounds geeky (it is), but the real-word uses are actually endless — you can detect gas leaks, check food and engine temperatures with the non-contact thermometer, check out humidity, monitor sunlight levels, detect wall studs, or even hook it up to stuff like EKGs and thermal printers. It works with any Android or iOS device.
