Gnomie Natasja Atherton’s got a site — Two Fruits One Robot — that focuses on the technological wonders of the Apple, BlackBerry, and Android (two fruits and one robot, you see?) mobile systems. No matter your smartphone or tablet of choice, you should be covered by the news and reviews to be found here. If not, are you sure that’s a phone you’re carrying around and not some kind of exotic implement for shredding salad toppings on the fly? Or perhaps it’s an Etch A Sketch? A Speak & Spell? A label maker from 1972 for which refills are no longer produced due to a lost class action lawsuit against the manufacturer for incorporating asbestos into the adhesive? It’s 2012, by gum! Get with the program and stuff your pockets with an asbestos-free fruit or robot of your choice!
Even though the Two Fruits One Robot team is based in South Africa, the know how it brings to the table can be applied globally. Do you Android in Andalusia? Do you iPhone in Iceland? Do you BlackBerry in Bolivia? Then you’re all set! And while the focus is officially on apps for any and all of these mobile devices, the reviewers don’t shy away from giving you the skinny on available accessories that they come across, as well as newsworthy items relevant to your favorite devices and operating systems. In the overall spirit of helpfulness, they additionally share their knowledge in how to articles like:
- How to Free up Space on Android

- How to Sync Your Android Device
- How to Add PDF Files to Read in iBooks on your iPad, iPod touch, or iPhone
