Cool idea, I guess that some elastic bands + a bumper (such that you wont wrap the elast onto the phone face) would do the job.
Your card? Seriously? It’s like vacation’s worst nightmare: on another continent, no cash, card gets demagnetized because of iPhone’s generate field. Jeez
I’ve been a huge advocate for no case whatsoever… the device is so beautiful by itself.
After dropping it a couple times, however, I decided to try a case like this one from Cushi: http://www.idamericany.com/index.php?dispatch=products.view&product_id=29789
Super fun and all it is is a sticker you put on the back of your phone (leaves no residue when removed). 50% safer without adding much bulk. And the best part are these little pads they include for the home button, giving it a bit of a bump that makes pressing it WAY easier.
it seems, elastic bands will work for me but the designs were fair.
Their solution for the audio cable reminds me of this clever design.
This feels like small improvement but it’s really is worth it.
I am using Case-Mate’s ID card case for iPhone, so I can place money and credit cards in it and I don’t need wallet, but this cases looks way better as it’s made of elastic material and doesn’t leave a huge footprint.
Looking forward to have one!
I use a Speck CandyShell Card. I don’t mind it, but it does add quite a bit of bulk to my (previously naked) iPhone.
I am wondering if there ever will be something like this for an Android phone. I have a Samsung Infuse and would really love a case like this for it. Please let me know if it’s available and where I might purchase one. Thanks
Thank you! Your remarks have been sent to Khoi.
