Remember when hardcover books had canvas covers? Well, they don't make them like that anymore, and with ebooks rising in popularity you might as well outfit your iPad as an old book. Right? That seems to be the trend. Cygnett's Alumni canvas case for iPad feels exactly like one of those books, and protects your tablet, too.
Bet you never thought your iPad could do origami, did you? Well, with the Incipio LGND Hard Shell Convertible Case, it can! This folio-style case lets you fold up its suede flaps into a fabulous little stand for your iPad. There are magnets on either side of the flaps and the back of the case to pin it all together, so you don't have to worry about origami that won't stay put (I think they call that cheating in some circles). Fold the flap over one way to type, and the other to stand up the iPad and watch LOST, like I've been doing since I got this case.
Carrying around pepper spray is never a bad idea. One tiny spray bottle can ensure that you have that added sense of security. But, the idea of clipping it to your iPhone may be taking it a step too far. The SmartGuard Pepper Spray iPhone case does just that, and while it's a fantastic idea in theory, its execution is a little awkward.
After Antennagate, bumper cases became the norm as protective frames for the iPhone 4. A bumper offered some buffer between the iPhone and a table you'd set it down on, but it didn't protect either side of the chassis from scratches. This case from Element Case offers a three-part solution with its version of the bumper case by including a padded back plate and a screen protector for the front.
When neon colors and frilly designs are too much commotion for your iPad's corporate lifestyle, the iFrogz Summit case is worth considering. Unlike other professional looking folio cases, this one retains its classy looks without the bulk--or the cost.
I'm not a fan of the Smart Cover because I'm not particularly satisfied with the fact that my iPad's backend is completely open to a world filled with scratchy things. I usually lean toward folio-style cases to keep the iPad protected, and fortunately Incipio has plenty of offerings. This week, we're reviewing the Incipio Slim Kickstand folio case for the third-generation iPad. It's exactly the kind of quality we expect from an Incipio case, and it nicely accentuates the iPad's svelte figure.
I know, the iPad is coming out in just a few days. What am I doing reviewing iPhone cases? Well, I'm pretty sure that while you're waiting for your new Apple tablet, you're probably reading this article from your iPhone. And, you need to protect it if it falls. Let's take a look at the BodyGuardz MyKase, the company's new line of protective cases for the iPhone 4 and 4S.
There's nothing I like more than a pretty case...that sounded girly. What I really mean to say is that if the case makes the iPhone look bulky and bland, I'm not going to sport it. UNIEA's unique line of iPhone 4S cases are gorgeous and a work of art themselves--a perfectly pretty companion for your even-prettier phone.
This week, I'm reviewing the Cygnett Icon Art Series case for the iPhone 4S. These fashionable cases are aesthetically pleasing and smooth to the touch, and they do so without adding any bulk to your iPhone. Read on to find out more.
Remember how Best Case Scenario was a bi-weekly thing? One of those twice-monthly columns that lumped in a bunch of stuff together, making it difficult for you to really pick out the review you wanted of an iPhone or iPad case? Those days are long gone. We're going with a brand new, weekly format so you can easily keep track of the latest cases and decide if it's worth spending your hard earned cash on.
This week, I'm reviewing this very stylish, but not very functionable, Retro Camera Case from Freshfiber. It's a quirky way to dress up your iPhone and give it some of the same mechanical functions as an old school camera, but it's really not too practical when it comes to actually protecting your iPhone. Read on.
