We’re seeing them everywhere, popping up on sticks, on bags, attached to trendy sunglasses, tshirts…it’s not movember anymore…maybe it’s just those hipsters having some fun again? But who doesn’t love a man with a moustache anyway (or a woman for that matter) So we’ve jumped on the bandwagon and created a fun range of bright moustaches for any occasion.

According to Kate Moss it is…and some would say that animal print never goes out of style!
But beware! animal print can be overdone. Rather than decking yourself out in the complete animal print look from head-to-toe (which would be totally acceptable if you’re Nicki Minaj or Lady Gaga), perhaps just stick with accessories. Handbags, scarves, shoes, jewelry are a great way to spice up an outfit without going overboard (or looking like you’re a part of a traveling circus troop).

Or a phone case…

This week we’ve created a sssssssexy and ssssstylish snake skin range plus a dangerously sexy line of leopard and panther print cases. Get yours now at http://www.inspiremycase.com/ready-mades

phone evolution

June 29, 2013 — Leave a comment

This week at InspireMyCase we’re celebrating all things vintage. So we thought we would take a look at the history of the phone. Wow, what an evolution its been in such a small number of years. We’ve come so far and we’re excited to see what the new generations of phones will look like following on from the current most popular phones…iPhone5 and SamsungS4. Celebrate with us and get your vintage on this week with a retro phone case at www.inspiremycase.com/ready-mades

This week there have been some leaks talking about the new chip for the iPhone6 or iPhone5s…or whatever might come next in apples arsenal.

The reaction to the design of the iphone5 was a bit muted and uninspired so we’re wondering if apple will make some big changes for their next model. We scoured the web to see what some creative designers and visionaries thought the new iPhone6 might possibly look like.

Many people out there seem to think it might be a transparent model. Personally we think this might still be a few generations off…maybe iphone7. Anyway check out some of these interesting concept designs from around the web. enjoy!

When your phone dies you often feel like you’ve died…or at the very least left helplessly floating in a world of disconnection.

The key to extended battery life is to reduce the amount of power your phone uses per hour.

Here are 5 simple tips to reduce power usage so you never have to feel disconnected from the world again:

  1. Reduce your screen brightness in the settings of your phone to a comfortable level (not a concert spotlight)
  2. In your phone settings change the screen timeout to about 15 seconds rather than the default of 1 minute
  3. Turn off your Bluetooth, this allows your battery to last about one hours longer
  4. Save any mapping tools for the car, and when using social media decline checkins which automatically activate ther GPS (one of the biggest battery suckers)
  5. Disable junk notifications, that photo of your friends breakfast can wait till later

We’ve scoured the web to find you the very best free apps, some super practical to make your life run smoother and some just super fun! Make sure you have these MUST HAVE apps on your iPhone. You wont regret it!

1. Flipboard

Flipboard curates content from your social networks and websites you like, from magazines to blogs, and turns them into stunning magazine-like digital pages. Flipboard absolutely shines on the iPad, where it first debuted because it takes full advantage of all the possible swiping gestures with both visual and interactive grace. On the smaller iPhone, it’s still quite elegant.

2. Google Translate

With more than 30 languages supported and delivering impressively accurate results most of the time, the Google Translate app is one of the most remarkable programs you can load onto your iPhone. Most people probably won’t need it too often, except when traveling or studying a language, but it can be amazingly useful in unexpected circumstances.

3. Instagram 

Improves the look of your mobile photos. Give your image a vintage or professional look with the app’s built-in filters.

4. Temple Run 

Put infinite-runner games on the map. In the game, run until you can’t run any longer while dodging obstacles. Since the launch of this original game, the studio has put out a sequel, Temple Run 2, as well as Brave and Oz-themed versions, in partnership with Disney.

Image


5. Kindle

With iBooks on the iPhone, you might wonder why you should bother with Amazon’s Kindle. After all, the app’s not as pretty as iBooks, nor is there an integrated store (you buy in Safari and sync purchases to the app). However, Kindle offers a massive selection of books compared to Apple’s app and the reading experience is great.

6. RunKeeper

The prospect of Nike+ but better and for free might sound unlikely, but that’s what Runkeeper  provides. Previously split into ‘pro’ and ‘free’ versions, the developer now generously includes all the features in one free app.

That means you can spend no money, yet use your iPhone’s GPS capabilities to track your jogging and cycling routes, and examine mapping and details of your pace and calories burned. Activities can be shared online, and treadmill runs and other exercise details can be entered manually.

7. Around Me

Around Me figures out where you are and lists local stuff – banks, bars, petrol stations and, er, Apple Retail Stores. The app’s reliance on Google Maps info means there are gaps, but it’s nonetheless handy to have installed when in unfamiliar surroundings, and the ‘augmented reality’ landscape mode is amusing, if flaky.

Image


8. XE Currency

XE Currency is a fine example of an app that does what it needs to, without fuss. You configure a list of currencies, and it shows current conversion rates. Double-tap a currency to set its base rate or to define values for custom conversions.

 Image


9. Shazam

Shazam is an app that feels like magic when you first use it. It’s deceptively simple—hold your iPhone near to a music source, and wait while the app listens and tells you what track is playing. But the sheer technology behind this simplicity is mind-boggling, and while Shazam doesn’t always guess right, it’s worth a download.

 Image


10. Find My iPhone

For the paranoid souls out there (or the unlucky ones who’ve had their devices pilfered), Find My iPhone is a must-have download. Assuming you’ve a 2010 or later iOS device, you can set up a free account and locate your devices within seconds. (Note that older devices can also be added to Find My iPhone – you just need a recent one to get things going.) 

Image


11. iHandy Torch Free

It’s a torch! It’s a cheesy neon light! It’s a hypnotic spiral effect! With slightly annoying ads! (In reality, iHandy Torch Free is a mostly a handy app to have installed in case you get up for a midnight snack or toilet visit, don’t turn on the light and want to avoid smashing your toe annoyingly hard into an unruly cupboard.)

Image

12. TED

TED is brain food. The app provides access to talks by insanely clever people, opening your mind to new and radical ideas. You can also save your favourite talks locally, for even easier access, or ask the app to inspire you, based on your mood and available time.

Image


13. Skyscanner

Skyscanner’s a great website, which enables you to punch in airports and find out the cheapest way of getting from A to B. The Skyscanner app is the same, but it’s on your device and with a spiffy AI. Well worth a download, even if only to check flights for an upcoming holiday.

Image

14. Adobe Photoshop Express

Digital photography editing has, until recently, been a task best suited for desktop and laptop computers, but Adobe proved that it could be done in the mobile space with Photoshop Express, a free photo-editing application for the iPhone and other iOS devices. Photoshop Express is a powerhouse of a mobile app, and can even handle noise reduction (getting rid of those extraneous particles that show up on photos). All in all, Adobe Photoshop Express is a solid tool for making light photo edits on your iPhone.

15. Draw Something Free

Draw Something Free, the latest app craze, pits both iOS and Android users in simple gesture-based drawing competitions. Pick a word from a list of three, draw it on your screen with your finger using a variety of colors and brushes, and then send it to your friend to guess what you’ve drawn. You win coins if your friend guesses correctly. It’s very simple and, like Words With Friends, the addiction lies in the robust social aspect. For more iPhone game recommendations, see “The 25 Best iPhone Games.”

16. Evernote

Without the Evernote app for iPhone, I’d be a lot less productive while I’m away from my desk. This free, straightforward note-making app outrivals most competing apps thanks to its strong search capabilities and effortless organization. But the real key to its success and popularity is that Evernote synchronizes all your files by saving them to a cloud service, meaning anything you create or alter from your iPhone will be there waiting for you when you log into any other version of Evernote. I use Evernote to write, take notes, and even snap pictures of whiteboards and PowerPoint slides in meetings, so I can remember details later.

Image


17. Wikipanion

The Wikipedia website works fine on iPhones, but a dedicated app is a better bet. Wikipanion is a freebie which gives you quick access to article sections, in-article search, viewing options, bookmarking, and the ability to tweet about whatever odd fact you’ve just unearthed. Also, wonderfully, there are no ads.

Image


18. Skype

 

FaceTime is a great alternative to standard voice calls, but it’s no good if you’re trying to contact someone without a Mac or compatible iOS device. Therefore, Skype remains an essential download. The interface is simple and usable, enabling anyone with a Skype account to make free calls to other Skype users and cheap calls to anywhere in the world. If you’re on Pay and Go, this is particularly handy, but the app also enables iPod touch users to utilise their devices for calls.

Image


19. Dropbox

Plenty of apps exist for transferring content between your computer and your device, but Dropbox is free and easier to use than most of its contemporaries. Dump files you want to sync in a folder on your computer and Dropbox for your device will enable you to access them, download them for offline viewing, and, in many cases, view them.
