Stuff We Like: Lifehacker’s Review of BookBook for iPhone

If you’re not already a devout reader/follower/watcher of Lifehacker, you’re missing a lot. Think of Lifehacker as your really street smart friend who seems to know how to score all the best things in life, who stays on the cutting edge of what’s truly cool and what’s coming soon, is good with his or her hands, who seems to have an engineer’s mind for figuring things out…but isn’t boring at parties. Yeah, that guy.

So when that guy (or gal) chooses one of the things from your company for a feature called “Stuff We Like,” it just couldn’t be any cooler.

Here’s what Lifehacker’s Jason Chen says after taking our BookBook for iPhone for a test drive:

“Someone has finally made an iPhone case/wallet combo that’s not only usable, but spacious and classy as well. If you’ve got limited pocket space, then this BookBook by TwelveSouth is tantalizing.”


“This thing is great. Rather than keeping a wallet and a phone in my pants, now I can carry one thing that is about the same size as my wallet. The only problem is that I’m the kind of guy that likes to keep all his cards on him at once, so that, for example, I’ll be prepared if I need to go to Blockbuster, or get my car towed, or show my dentist or doctor my insurance. But is that necessary? Can’t I just leave those sometime-use cards in a stack at home and insert it into the BookBook when I need it? Do I always have to carry my business cards around in my wallet in case I run into somebody? Would an email address do? Yes, most likely. So this case has changed my use habits a bit as well.”
