26

Crowd funding sites like Indiegogo have spurred a tons of mobile-focused innovation, and the latest huge campaign looking for more contributors is called GOkey. The basic idea behind GOkey is being a bit of an all-in-one smartphone tool — a large key-sized device that is a battery, a charging and data sync cable, a device locator and a file storage device all in one. It's a pretty neat idea, and it's pulled in nearly $1 million after looking for just $40,000 to start.

Pressy review: The little 3.5mm plug that could

99
Pressy

The surprisingly handy accessory opens up a new world of hardware actions

Many of us with Android devices have tasks we would like to accomplish without looking at our screens, but which may not have a dedicated or customizable hardware button (and some devices don't have any hardware buttons at all). Many of us also have headphone jacks on our devices we rarely (if ever) use, particularly given the vast number of Bluetooth audio solutions. If you're in both categories, Pressy, a new Android-only accessory originally funded through Kickstarter and now shipping (first to backers and pre-orders), may be exactly what you're looking for.

TYLT ENERGI 2K makes sense for iPhone users, not so much for anyone else

22

The TYLT ENERGI 2K travel charger, on paper, makes sense. It's got prongs that fold out of the body and straight into a wall charger, so there's no mucking about with USB cables and separate charging warts. Just plug the battery into the wall and charge away. We get that. And if you're an iPhone user, that makes sense. Who wants to carry around a microUSB cable that you might well have no other use for?

But if you're using any other smartphone — Android, BlackBerry or Windows Phone — there are better options for keeping charged up while on the go.

47

Amazon is having a pretty massive sale on microSD memory cards from Sony. We're talking $32.99 for the 64 GB card, which normally goes for $114.99. (That's 71% off, for those who don't feel like doing the math.) Unfortunately, Sony's line doesn't extend up to the 128 GB denomination we've seen elsewhere, but you will find every other size under the sun, and even some solid prices on the full-sized SD cards.
