Actually, the ReadyCase for iPhone 5/5s can do more than that.  It can protect your phone, as you’d expect, but it also incorporates a multi-function tool that has a can opener, screwdriver, and regular and serrated blades.  There’s also a your choice of a 4GB or 8GB flash drive that stores data and serves as a stand for horizontal or landscape viewing.  It also incorporates a headphones clip and has a lens-mounting ring that allows you to attach a macro, wide-angle, or fisheye lens (optional purchase).  The case adds only 3mm of thickness to the iPhone.  The iPhone 5/5s ReadyCase with a 4GB flash drive is $45 and is $55 with the 8GB drive;  also get the optional lens kit with either version of the case for an additional $20.  It’s available at the ReadyCase website.

  2. I bought one of these when the company was in ‘start up’ mode…. which means, I paid my money, before they were even produced…. the time for the production, got pushed back, and pushed back…. numerous emails…. and more and more delays, with the production and delivery…. by the time it finally came, I was so over the process, I almost chucked it in the bin…. but, for the purpose of the exercise, I put it on the phone….

    I should have just chucked it in the bin!!! Calling it a ‘case’ is a stretch of the imagination…. it’s a bit of plastic, that clips to the BACK of your phone….. within 2 months, the bottle opener, was falling out in my pocket…. carrying the lenses, was just extra baggage, and there’s no real way to protect them…. you kinda need a special case for the lenses…. and the results from the lenses was poor…. very fiddly to get the lens on, not covering the existing lens…. and the results from the pictures, were less than impressive…. the wide angle fish eye, is really distorted, and looks like a massive ball….. granted, it’s a ‘fish eye’…. but if you want a ridiculously distorted image, it might be the effect you’re looking for.

    I was sold on the look, and gimmick of this case, but I can tell you, it’s in the bin, and I have no idea where the lenses are, the bottle opener, or the USB stick…..

    Suffice to say, this is ‘ReadyRubbish’…..
