The thrills of frills


Nothing beats accessorising your generic mobile iDevice (iPod, iPhone, and iPad) to something more personalised to suit your need and taste. The following are three essential accessories that Yantrick simply cannot do without:

L5 Universal Remote Control

Plug in the coin sized L5 to your iDevice connector at the bottom, download the free L5 app from the App Store, and you are good to go. The L5 allows you to search for and download remotes for gadgetsyou own, or program any infrared remote controlled device, along with your personalised design, all without the need for a battery, as the L5 is powered by your iDevice itself. It is a simple, yet extremely convenient and powerful alternative for replacing multiple remote control devices and at approximately Rs 3,000, the L5 certainly is worth it.

Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker

Delivering Bose’s legendary audio performance, this ultra-compact speaker is a worthy companion for your iDevice. Connecting to your gadget via a Bluetooth connection and boasting seven hours battery life, this pint sized speaker is the perfect solution for your audio needs during the long days of load-shedding this upcoming winter. The speaker’s Bluetooth connectivity also means that it can be used with your Bluetooth-equipped Android devices and well as your Bluetooth-enabled laptops and notebooks. Weighing a mere 1.5 pounds and at just seven inches wide, this Bose speaker is extremely portable, elegantly designed, and simple to operate. Marked at Rs 25,000, the speaker certainly deserves a look-in.

Eurekka Case with bluetooth wireless keyboard for iPad

With an executive-looking faux leather cover and a keyboard attached to its inside, the Eurekka case looks extremely sleek and adds a layer of sophistication wherever you carry around your iPad in it. The keyboard connects to your iPad via Bluetooth and is equipped with an in-built rechargeable lithium battery, a full charge of which should last at least three days of heavy use. The case is great for typing long articles/documents on-the-go, for office apps like the Smart Office 2 (free app), and is totally worth the Rs 3,000.
