Some people tend to prefer the risk of damaging their naked iPhones over slapping a protective case onto the device. The reason? Cases usually diminish the natural elegance of the bare iPhone and instead replace it with generic polycarbonate or silicone (in most situations). However, for those users who are willing to come halfway rather than possibly damaging their phones without any protector or using a case, there are numerous other solutions currently available. Part of the company's Original Series, Mujjo's Sleeve for the iPhone 5 ($45) is a top contender despite its rather high pricing.
To begin our highly-anticipated evaluation of the massive collection of iPhone 5 cases soon to be in our palms, we here at iPhone Alley have begun to roundup all of the announcements and press releases that we've received since last Wednesday. Having already shown our excitement over Otterbox's announcement of four cases catered to fit the iPhone 5, we're continuing our extensive roundup by shedding light on Incipio's lineup for Apple's new iconic device.
On Thursday, software developer Qik's live-streaming iPhone application, Qik Live [App Store, Free], was released in the App Store. The application allows users to stream video from their iPhone 2G, 3G and 3GS to the Web over a 3G or Wi-Fi connection. Other features include the ability to edit video details like privacy, title, tags and chat settings. The app also includes one-touch sharing options which allow users to send the video to Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
Qik Live requires iPhone OS 3.1 or later to install and run.
