I will admit right off the bat that I am an Apple fanboy. I love their products. I love their design. I love their sheer simplicity. Yet, there are moments where you want to spice things up a little bit, give the Apple look and feel a little personal twist. There are tons of cases and sleeves out there for your iPhone, iPad or MacBook, but they mostly replace the Apple logo and look with another brand name or mass-produced design. Maybe you’re looking for something a little more – you!
The CaseMaker Pro from Interworks allows iPhone 5/5S owners to create their own personalized images for the back of the phone. It basically works like an iPhone-shaped hole-punch machine. Just slide in your family photo, picture of your significant other, or just a really cool image you saw in a magazine, then push down hard and out slides a perfectly shaped cutout. You then slide that into the clear protective case provided with the CaseMaker Pro and you’re off, showing the world another little piece of your creativity.
I’ve already popped out two different photos of my son, which I change every other week or so, and I love it. It makes it incredibly easy when people ask to see pictures of him and I can just flip my phone over, BOOM, there he is. The case itself is really smooth and slides in and out of pockets nicely. That’s one big flaw I find in other protective cases, when you get security against damage, but lose the ability to actually get the phone out of your pocket in enough time to answer it.
The CaseMaker Pro is a solid piece of gadgetry. Heavy and sturdy, this product will likely outlast the people who buy it.
If Interworks continues to iterate on the design of the CaseMaker Pro, my only suggestion would be to create a window through the top so you could see exactly where the cuts were lining up. That would make it a little easier to make sure you got exactly the photo cropping you wanted.
If you’re looking for that extra way to make your iPhone a little more “you,” the CaseMaker Pro gives you endless opportunities in a simple, nearly effortless way.
