Mario’s talked about how much he likes the iRig before, but it’s great for anyone looking to do mobile video, interviews and more.

Hulgar Penelope Phone

The Hulgar phone can do a lot, so it’s almost not even fair to call it an iPhone accessory. Not only can you use it as a headset for your iPhone, you can also plug it directly into your computer for use with Skype, Vonage, Google Talk, etc. Plus it’s a beautiful design object that looks good on any desk.

Ollo Clip

Documenting on the go is important to your social media presence, and the Ollo Clip can help those photos come out more professionally. It’s a clip on lens for the iPhone 4/4S that’s still small and convenient enough to carry around.  For our money the 3-in-one is all you need, with a wide-angle, fisheye and macro lens all in one.

Right now the 3-in-one lens goes for $69.99, which is a great deal if you take a lot of photos. And it’s very possible this product will get a markdown as the new iPhone 5 becomes more popular, so keep an eye out!
