Casetagram lets you create custom smartphone cases

Casetagram's customisable cases are a nice option, but the case itself could use some improvement

These days, there's certainly no shortage of available cases for your smartphone. A relatively unique option is Casetagram, which claims to be the first and only company with an app that allows users to produce fully customisable cases.

Casetagram lets users customise a smartphone case by uploading their own Instagram and Facebook photos, or using their own personal photos. The made-to-order cases can be customised with up to 18 layouts, and up to 24 photos can be used on a single case, depending on the layout selected.

We ordered a Casetagram case in order to evaluate the service. The online interface is very easy to use and allows photos to be dragged and dropped onto a virtual template. Users can link their Instagram or Facebook accounts for direct access to images, while personal photos can also be uploaded to the site for use on a case.

Available templates range from a single photo, to the "golden grid" option which lets you use 24 photos on a single case. The options are impressive, but not overwhelming thanks to a straightforward UI. For those who don't want to create a custom case, the site also offers a large range of existing designs.

In addition to creating a custom case online, Castagram also has a free app for iOS and Android devices, that allows users to create and order any case from their smartphone or tablet.

Casetagram claims each case is hand checked before it gets sent out, and users can choose from "frosty white" or "frost charcoal" colours. Custom images are screen printed onto the back of the case, which is manufactured from hard plastic. The print on the case is a cross between matte and gloss and appears to be of good quality.

Cases start from US$34.95 and include free standard shipping to over 80 countries. We ordered an iPhone 5s case, priced at US$39.95 and delivery time was seriously impressive, taking just two days to reach Australia after the order was placed. Casetagram says most users should receive their case within 2-4 working days.

While the the quality of the printed photos is impressive, the Casetagram case itself is of questionable quality. Our iPhone 5s case doesn't sit firmly on the device, shifting up and down and therefore rattling when moved. The case also provides minimal protection for the iPhone: the bottom and top of the phone are left almost completely unexposed, while the cutout around the camera lens on the back isn't smooth or clean.

Casetagram has cases available for the Apple iPhone 5s, 5c, 5, 4S and 4, the 5th Generation and 4th Generation iPod touch, the iPad Mini, the 4th Generation and 3rd Generation iPad, the iPad 2, the Google Nexus 4, the Samsung Galaxy S4, S3, and S2, the Samsung Galaxy Note II and original Galaxy Note, and the Blackberry Z10.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
