The Review | Mujjo iPad Mini Sleeve

The Review | Mujjo iPad Mini Sleeve

From the Netherlands comes Mujjo, a brand known for crafting minimalistic yet functional products. In 2012, Mujjo first began developing sleeves for Apple devices such as the iPhone, iPad, MacBook Air as well as the MacBook Pro. The brand’s The Originals collection features a unique combination of wool felt and high quality leather, and they recently added an iPad Mini Sleeve that fits seamlessly into Mujjo’s current product lineup. The folks over at Mujjo were kind enough to send us an iPad Mini sleeve for review and we’ve been quite impressed by its detailing and overall craftsmanship. It’s easy to carry and has a little extra space in a separate compartment that can fit your headphones, some folded documents or even a MiFi. The wool felt contrasts really well with the vegetable tanned leather and we can already tell the leather with age to perfection. The felt can be easily cleaned as a special treatment provides excellent anti-peeling properties and makes the sleeve water repellent. Aesthetically, it may be the best looking iPad Mini sleeve on the market and its ability to blend so well with the iPad Mini’s slim design is what makes it such a great accessory.

Mujjo’s iPad Mini Sleeve is available now in either brown or white leather.

Google Maps for iOS

Google Maps for iOS

Three months after iOS 6 hit the market with a brand new Maps application, an official Google Maps app is now available in the App Store. With this comes a welcomed competitor to the native Maps app as well as a pretty clean aesthetic that matches that of other Google iOS apps. What did we miss the most, you ask? Well, public transportation directions was a huge gap and Google’s filling it quite nicely with this one. We’ll have to see how it performs in NYC. Also, Google Maps for iOS comes with a beta version of Google Maps Navigation, which has voice-guided, turn-by-turn navigation, and live traffic conditions as well. Signing in with your Google account also lets you sync searches, directions and favorites. Google Maps also has Street View for anyone that missed that.

The new Google Maps app is available for the iPhone and iPod Touch (4th gen) iOS 5.1 and higher, in more than 40 countries and 29 languages, including Chinese, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese and Spanish.
