Made by The Task Lab, the same guys behind the TaskOne iPhone Multitool Case we featured earlier, the myTask Urban is a multifunctional iPhone case which allows you to always have handy a cool selection of mini-tools!
Made of strong red or black polycarbonate with a vibrant soft-touch coating the myTask Urban case is TSA compliant and features a sliding stash where all the tools are safely store while not in used. Once you slide down the hidden iPhone pocket cover you have instant access to a mirror, tweezers, a nail-file, scissors, a pen, a stylus, an 8GB USB drive and mini-led light for emergency situations. Cool, isn’t it?
Since Sony’s Walkman Cassette Player and even further back, people enjoying music on the go have a common problem – what to do and how to properly store their headphones without much effort and still having them handy when needed! And, as easy and simple as it sounds, it’s still a common problem even today! If you your earbuds around your smartphone they look ugly and they are uncomfortable in your pockets, if you throw them in your bag they’ll get tangled and you’ll have a hard time next time you want to use them, if you properly wrap them chances are you’ll not remember where you put them or you’ll forget them at home!
While it might not be the ultimate solution for everyone, the iPhone Spinn Case comes with a very intelligent solution to this issue – as most people carry their smartphones in sleeves, pouches or cases, why not use this protective gear to also hold your earbuds? The Spinn iPhone case is available for iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and both iPhone 5 and 5S with or without the Apple case and it’s made of full grain leather with Ultrasuede interior liner. The case features a leather wheel centered on the security hook which allows you to wrap your earbuds around it and carry them securely stored. Also, while in use, you can wrap the extra cable around the leather wheel to keep it from tangling or staying in the way.
The Spin iPhone Case comes in three colors: black, chocolate or grizzly and, as an option, you can also order a snap closing belt clip.
Either you’re going out with friends, heading to work in the early morning or partying late at night, shopping or enjoying a meal, snowboarding or having a a cold beer on hot sunny afternoon there’s one piece of gear you always have on you – your smartphone! And that’s perfectly normal – just think about it – your bellowed iPhone replaced most gadgets you carried in your backpack just 10 short years ago! It replaced your GPS unit, your MP3 player, your reading book, your newspaper, your photo camera and video recorder and, given the traction virtual wallets such as Google Pay, Apple Pay and Amazon Wallet get, it’s on its sure way to replace your whole wallet in a couple of years!
So, if you already have your phone always on you, why not improve it even more and give it new powers? Bellow you have a collection of the coolest iPhone cases around designed to improve even further your iPhone. Most cases I featured bellow are available for all iPhone models – simply go to the product page to check the availability for your iPhone model.

With the iPhone 6 Plus is already on the market since a couple of weeks ago, it’s time we start looking for some cool accessories to help you protect and make your bellowed iPhone even better! So, for first, we’ll do what every sane geek would do – get some basic protection as well as find a way to improve the iPhone battery life and make sure you finish the day on one power charge!
And our first contender is … the iPhone 6 Plus Power Jacket! Designed to offer basic protection against bumps and scratches, the Power Jacket also includes a 4,200mAh extended battery which will add your iPhone enough power juice to get you through a busy day. If you’re not sure what 4,200mAh means – let me simply tell you that the iPhone 6 Plus battery has 2,915mAh, so the Power Jacket will extend it’s power life with an extra 144% over the original capacity.
While all this extra power juice is great, the Power Jacket comes with a bit of extra bulk and ads 117 grams to the iPhone 6 Plus (the original iPhone weight is 172 grams) and about 17mm in thickness. Not much to worry if you think about all the extra power it brings. The Power Jacket for iPhone 6 Plus comes in two colors (white or black and) and is also available in a 8,200mAh format.
Your iPhone has a more powerful camera that stand-alone digital cameras had just a few short years back! But, if that’s not enough and you want to further optimize your smartphone’s camera, we have your back covered.
A while back we told you about the Manfrotto Klyp which was designed to help you take professional pics on your iPhone, we told you about the Optrix XD which helps transforming your iPhone into a waterproof action camera and about the Izzi Orbit iPhone Lens which ads an cool kit of lens to your favorite smartphone. Today, we’ll continue on that direction with the SnappGrip iPhone Case.
The SnappGrip ads hardware controls for shutter/focus, zoom and shooting mode to your iPhone, ads a tripod mount screw which allows mounting your iPhone on standard tripods, sports an internal rechargeable battery to extend your iPhone’s battery life, an USB port for easy charging and connects to your smartphone via Low Energy Bluetoth. A free app to fine tune your pics is available from iTunes .
Yes, I know, the market is already crowded by thousands and thousands of cool cases and sleeves for your bellowed iPhone, your iPad or your Mac! So what sets the Chivote iCollection apart from the crowd? Other than the smart functional design, the handmade build, the premium vegetable tanned leather used to manufacture the gear and the decent pricing – we like that we can “dress” all our gadgets in the same style! The iCollection is composed of three protective cases – an iPhone / iPod Touch model which also includes a rear pocket for storing a couple of credit cards and bills, an iPad protective case which doubles as a tablet stand and a MacBook leather case and stand designed to protect the 13″ and 15″ Apple laptop models!
Cool, isn’t it? The Chivote iCollection is in project mode at Kickstarter and you can secure the entire collection for iPhone, iPad and Mac for an early bird price of $156 US. The cases are also available individually.
UPDATE 01/31/2015 – the iCollection from Chivote was successful crowdfunded and it is available for purchase on the Chivote website via the Buy Now link bellow.
Smartphones are more and more in our lives and every day we depend more and more of them. Just think about it! Just a few short years back you needed a backpack full of gadgets to accomplish what you do today with a simple smartphone.GPS navigation, MP3 player, books, digital camera and the list goes on and on …
But there’s a small problem with this! As smartphones become capable of helping us with more and more tasks, they also grow in size! They need more powerful batteries, bigger screens, bigger storage space, more physical space inside them to carry more chips and technologies … And this makes them less and less portable …
For many, carrying their phone around while working, exercising or traveling has become a real hassle. For them, and not only, the Wonderful Things Factory brought the SlimClip to the market. The SlimClip is a minimalist iPhone case which also doubles as a belt clip allowing users to carry their phones clipped to their belt, pocket or paints waist.
The SlimClip is made of strong protective ABS plastic, has a minimalist design (it only ads 2.5mm of thickness to your iPhone), is compatible with iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S, comes in a range of vibrant colors to match your favorite outfit, gives natural access to all native iPhone buttons and ports and, due to it’s ingenious design, can be securely clipped to clothing, bags, backpacks, laptop cases and even in your car.
I used the SlimClip for the past couple of days and it’s a great product. A bit of work to slide the iPhone in the case, but that’s a small price to pay for a solid grip and piece of mind that your favorite smartphone is well secured and safe while you roam around!
