Reign23 Bolt portable USB wall battery charger released

Reign23 has released its combination USB wall charger and rechargeable portable battery, Bolt. Its portable battery has a 3000mAh capacity, large enough for two full charges of an iPhone or other mobile device. Initially launched as a Kickstarter project in 2013, Bolt is small, at 2.75 inches by 1.33 inches by 1.10 inches. Its smart charge technology automatically bypasses the battery when fully charged, and is available in blue and black color options. Priced at $60, the Bolt USB Wall Charger and Battery can be purchased online.

BBC iPlayer receives Chromecast support for iOS and Android apps

The BBC's TV and radio content app, BBC iPlayer, has received an update for both iOS and Android. Users can download TV programming, or watch and listen live over Wi-Fi and 3G (the program can only be obtained from, and used by, devices with UK IP addresses). Shows can be added to one's Favorites, and streamed on a TV using AirPlay on iOS 5 or later, and now, in each app's newest version, content can be pushed to TVs with new support for Chromecast.
