- Whether you’re looking for an app or an accessory, the iPad and iPhone marketplace can be overwhelming. But there are two key differences. You can get or sample a lot of good quality apps for free; with accessories, not so much. You can also take small, 99-cent chances on many apps, but with iPad and iPhone accessories, you just don’t have that luxury.
So I thought it would be helpful to create an online store that would allow you, me, family and friends to accessorize our precious iDevices prudently and confidently. To do so, I harnessed three voracious appetites — for research, the iPad and iPhone.
Handpicked iPad and iPhone Accessories
I separated the wheat from the chaff simply. To be listed in my Amazon aStore, an item has to have appeared in a top-tech list or gift guide of two or more reputable tech reviewers or enthusiasts. As a result, this store only features recommended iPad and iPhone accessories.
You can find much of the research for this aStore curated elsewhere, though I went beyond the posts on that site to verify consensus on many items. The store also includes well-regarded “appcessories,” or app-enabled accessories, which I discuss in earlier posts around toys, fitness, music entertainment, and remote controllers and monitors.
Only books were selected differently — the instructional books that I have personally used and found extremely helpful in writing about the iPad and iPhone appear in my Amazon aStore.
A Marketplace and Buyers Guide Conveniently Rolled into One
This Amazon aStore should not only satisfy your need to shop or window-shop, but also serve as a good reference for top-of-the-line iPad and iPhone accessories. So go ahead. Take a moment to check it out. To get to the store, you can either click here or go to “IRoll,” followed by “aStores” and then “Top Accessories” up top.
While every iPad and iPhone accessory in my store is backed by an authoritative thumbs-up, I cannot vouch for its perfection nor am I responsible for any damage and/or data loss that might result from its use. Please use Amazon’s customer ratings to help you further hype-proof your iPad and iPhone accessory choices and decisions going forward.
