One of our most used items on our desk happened to be an old Lightning dock back from a few years ago when Apple still sold one. Since then, 3rd parties have stepped in to fill the void Apple had confusingly left. As of today, though, Apple is back in the game with a new Lightning Dock. If you remember the old one, you’ll notice the new one isn’t all that different. The only real change is the scallop for the phone to sit in has been removed, with the Lightning connector now being raised above the flat platform of…

We know Google has kept itself busy with slowly updating all their apps (including iOS ones) to fit their new material design language. But even though they already gave their iOS YouTube app a material design layout, Google apparently wasn’t very happy with it. Google has started rolling out a completely redesigned YouTube app for iOS, to a selected amount of users. And we here at Bit Bit Byte were fortunate enough to had the chance to give it an exclusive first look. In this article I will give you a quick look around the brand new design of the…

Good calendar apps are actually quite plentiful on both Android and iOS (more-so the latter). That said, we’re never content with “staying put” and always happy to see new and unique features added to something as mundane and ritual as a calendar. And today, Sunrise Calendar app hopes to woo you over with a pretty slick new feature as part of their version 4.0 rollout. Specifically, Sunrise 4.0 for Android and iOS now features a new, custom keyboard dubbed “Meet”. Basically, it’s a way for users to quickly glance at and schedule meetings via the keyboard section of the screen…

Apple’s upcoming watch is probably one of the most hyped Apple products to date (save for that elusive Appel TV). And while we know a decent amount about it now, it’s only served to increase the building hype. The most important question everyone seems to be circling back to, though, is just what exactly can/will they do with the Apple Watch? What purpose does it serve? Is it a notification checker, a garage door opener, a news feed on your wrist…. a watch? Truth be told, it’s going to be a lot of things in a way that Apple typically…

There’s no shame in being a desk warrior. While some may think your stationary spot in front of a screen is more of a burden than a plus, there are some perks. For starters, battery life of your mobile phone becomes less of an issue. If you’re sitting in front of a computer all day, power (and WiFi for that matter) are plentiful. Sure. You could plug into a normal cable like a heathen. Or you could kick things up a notch with a sophisticated looking (and super handy) charging dock. Today we’re taking a look at Henge Docks’ weighty…

With soooo many apps available for mobile platforms, finding unique apps is quite literally a needle in a haystack ordeal. But today, we found our needle – SnapStats. We’re nerds here. In many ways. And nerds love numbers/specs/metrics. SnapStats is like many other hardware stats apps in the App Store. So in that sense it’s not necessarily unique. But, for starters it’s well designed. On top of the good design, it’s free. And finally (and most importantly), the developer is an awesome guy. As for the app itself, it’ll tell you a bunch of info about your phone such as…

Here is a quick look at the differences in screen size between the iPhone 6 and previous iPhone generations as well as a few other Android devices. Notice the lock button on the iPhone 6 has now been moved to the side, instead of the top. It appears Apple understands a top mounted power button on a large device is an awful idea. Devices in Video: iPhone 6 (4.7? Screen) iPhone 1st Gen (3.5? Screen) iPod Touch 5th Gen (4.0? Screen) iPhone 5 / iPhone 5S (4.0? Screen) Motorola Moto X (4.7? Screen) HTC One M8 (5.5? Screen) LG G3…

We’ve had the HTC M8 in hand for less than 8 hours but we’ve already managed to stash away a few dozen photos (and plenty of thoughts) thus far. That said, we thought we’d share some comparison photos with you before our full review is done… you know, because the M8 is the hottest thing right now in the mobile world. This small batch of photos is mostly lower light as that’s the time of day it was. Also, because it matters, the competing device is an LG G2. (In all photos the HTC M8 is either on the left…

Keyboards and mice often get the bulk of attention as far as gaming peripherals are concerned. But for many a gamer, whether by choice or necessity, headsets also take a prime spot on the stage. For some, they just want to keep their gameplay audio confined to themselves as to not disturb others. The other scenario is that people want a gaming headset because for the money, you can get a far more immersive and life-like experience than a large speaker setup would offer. Today, we’re taking a look at Func’s HS 260 headset, a nice compliment to their 460…
