As I’ve mentioned before, I don’t keep the same cover on for more than a week. I have multiple colors and styles to keep me interested. This case, the Innovez iPhone 5 Life series, arrives in two parts. The hard back cover and the soft inner sleeve. The delightful part about this case is that you can mix and match the covers and sleeves, maximizing your options for a reasonable cost.
There is no denying that a iPhone in its natural state is a thing of beauty. I like keeping mine in pristine shape so I use a cover to protect it. But, it's not just about security. I admit I like the different options that covers allow me. I can be sedate and businesslike with a black cover or feed my creative side with fun colors. Listed below are the four covers that are currently on my favorites list. Continue reading

The image on an iPad is spectacular. The glass screen allows all the colors to shine through in their full glory. However, I worry about scratches and after a while decided I need a screen protector.
I spent quite a bit of time researching my options, reading user opinions and watching YouTube Videos. In the end, I decided the iVisor AG was a good fit for me.
