iHome Speaker/Dock/Alarm

ia63.jpg

iHome's latest speaker/dock can handle almost every generation of iPhone/iPod touch and can rotate to fit them both vertically and horizontally. It doesn't end in its cleverness there. The iA 63 works as an alarm/FM radio and a remote is included in the package. Pick up the +Sleep app for custom alarms, weather and news alerts, social media connection and watching video in landscape mode.
