Kickstand and Flexwrap cases by Findables for iPhone 5

I have two Findables cases to review the FlexStand and the FlexWrap. Findables cases are truly unique. They are called findable for a reason. If you lose your phone, and it’s in a Findable case, all you have to do is go to the free Findables app (what case comes with its own app?) and change the status of your phone to lost. If someone finds it, they will undoubtedly scan the embedded QR code on the back of the case. They will then be instructed how to return the phone. Chances are you will get your phone back. Pretty slick.

But that’s not all a Findables case will do for you. You can go green and get rid of your business cards. Just enter your contact information in the app, and when people scan the code on your case, they have your business card with Linkedin page link. You can put almost anything you want in the QR code such as pictures of your products or your new baby.

There’s more. You can personalize the code with your social profile and share your Facebook page, Twitter feed, Instagram Pics, and Google+ information. You can have up to three profiles and switch among them.

Now let’s take a look at the Findables Flex Stand case. Made of sturdy polycarbonate with a shock absorbing interior, it comes in apple green/grey, black/blue, blue/orange, and white/grey, and costs $29.95. The outstanding feature of this case is that the bottom half of the back folds out to make a stand in the landscape position. You can also stand it up in a portrait posture if you don’t mind a straight up vertical angle. The only problem is that you may have to take it out of the case to charge it depending on the type of charger you are using. 

The FlexWrap case also has the same sturdy construction. It only lacks a kickstand. It comes in a variety of colors including black, green, orange, blue, white, purple, and grey.
