6 Reasons Why You Should Buy a Johanna Basford Case

Johanna Basford OBE is a Scottish illustrator. Her illustrations are hand-drawn, predominantly in black and white, with pencils and pens. Basford’s works can be found in products such as coloring books, wallpaper, beer labels, and even tattoos and now even cases for your iPhone and iPad!! Here are a few reasons why we think you NEED to buy one of her cases…

  1. Colouring has been said to be therapeutic

    The inability to focus has been closely linked to anxiety and stress. When colouring in you can focus your mind, make decisions (albeit small ones such as ‘what colour should I make this flower?’) and channel negative energy into something enjoyable, thus turning it into positivity.

  2. It helps you to express your individuality

    The way in which we colour and the colour schemes we use are a representation of the individual and their personal taste. Someone who may love to colour only in grayscale using a pencil will likely be different in personality to someone who colours in bold bright colours using a felt tip pen. Why not clear your mind, grab some colouring tools and express yourself?!

  3. They make great gifts for the holiday season

Over the Christmas period, (Christmas is only 93 days away!!), it can be hard to find gifts for everyone. These cases are suited to younger and older generations. For younger kids it gets them off their tablets/smartphones and actually getting creative and for the older generation it can do the same or just provide a little ‘me’ time in between busy schedules.

  1. They will protect your iPhone/iPad too!

Not only are these cases good fun to colour in and a great way to do all of the above, they will also keep your device protected! The case comes in two part – The gel bumper and the solid plastic backing. The gel bumper has a lip on it that sits just above the screen to help protect the phone when dropped. The clear back is rigid and a great way to keep scratches and dents off the back too.

  1. If you get bored of having a colourful phone, you can simply remove the inserts and enjoy a clear, protective case instead!

 With the new iPhone 7 launching in glossy Jet Black a lot of people will want to show it off while its being protected. This case is a great way to do just that and be able to change it up with some colour if you feel like it!

  1. It has some really sexy gold accents

    The gold accents on this case really set it off (especially against a black iPhone 7!) Not only are these cases therapeutic, expressive, protective and gift worthy, they are also simply really nice!!!

If you fancy yourself one of these for iPhone 6/6s, iPhone 7, iPad Mini 4 or the iPad Air 2 click below and see just how fab they are for yourself!!

Nintendo x Apple : Super Mario for iPhone

Everyone’s favourite plumber is coming to iOS! Here is a run through of when the game will be available and what to expect…

On the 7th September Apple held the iPhone 7 launch and alongside the unveiling of their new devices they surprised us by bringing Shigeru Miyamoto – the creator of legends such as Super Mario and Zelda – onto the stage to announce the game. During the keynote he said 

“We have created Super Mario Run to be perfect for playing on your iPhone, Super Mario has evolved whenever he has encountered a new platform, and for the first time ever, players will be able to enjoy a full-fledged Super Mario game with just one hand, giving them the freedom to play while riding the subway or my favourite, eating a hamburger.”

Nintendo has kept Super Mario off of mobile devices, other than their own handheld consoles, making this a very exciting release in the gaming world! The game is called Super Mario Run and it is set to be released onto the App Store in December this year. Since it was said to be ‘around the holiday period’ we can guess it will be out just before Christmas!

The best way to keep on top of when this game will be available is to go to your App Store, search Super Mario Run and hit the NOTIFY button which is in place of the GET button for the time being.

Here is the excerpt from the gameplay description in the App Store to give you a low-down on what to expect:

“In this game, you constantly move forward through the courses while using a variety of jumps to navigate. Your character will behave differently depending on the timing of your taps, so it’s up to you to show off particularly smooth moves, gather coins, and reach the goal.”

 

Super Mario Run Game Modes:
There are 3 different modes to play in on Super Mario Run.
1. Standard mode – in which you try your best to complete all the various levels.
2.  A second mode – in which you compete against the play data of other people’s completed levels
3. Lastly is the third mode – in which you create your own Mushroom Kingdom using coins collected in the course of playing the first two modes. This last mode is still a little on the mysterious side so we can’t wait to play and see what it has in store!

Otterbox vs. Griffin

Here at Case Hut we want to be able to offer the best protection on the market for your smartphone. Two of the most popular brands for rugged cases are Otterbox and Griffin so here is a breakdown of what to expect from the Otterbox Defender and the Griffin Survivor to help you decide which is best for you!

Both cases offer a similar type of protection, so you can expect the following:

– Smooth edges giving minimal bulk and making it easy to fit in a pocket.

– Non slip grip, meaning that even though the smooth exterior makes it easier to move in and out of a pocket, you won’t find it hard to keep hold of your device.

– A rugged multi-layer design to help absorb impact.

– A lightweight shell and inclusive screen protection.

Both cases have also been drop tested onto concrete to ensure that upon impact your case and phone will remain intact. 

All round protection from both will also prevent damage from scratches, dust, sand and rain water to ensure the device is as protected as possible.

 

 OTTERBOX

 

 Claims to be

offer maximum defence with a minimal profile

– to have been subjected to over 31 tests
– absorbs impact from everyday and extreme abuse

 

Is…

The design is nice and slim, less bulky than the Griffin but ever so slightly. The shell is still lightweight and covers the whole phone to ensure no damage to the body of the phone.

GRIFFIN

 

 Claims to be

– offer maximum defence with a minimal profile

– to have been subjected to over 31 tests

– absorbs impact from everyday and extreme abuse

 

 

Is…

– the slimline design means the phone isn’t overly bulky and still feels light and sturdy. As it covers all of the phone it definitely offers protection from dust and scratches. 

 

Even though the cases are of similar specifications, some customers will naturally favour one brand over another.
