    Default MagSkin Review [Giveaway]



    MagSkin works. There’s something unusually satisfying about slapping your iPhone on the fridge, and the side of a filing cabinet.

    The idea is simple. Attach a magnet to the back of your iPhone or iPad and stick it to things. Creator Daniel Weyer’s final design is essentially an adhesive magnet with a skin applied to the back for some visual flare.

    Included in each package is the MagSkin ($19.99) which attaches to the back of your iDevice, and a MagDock, which is a polar opposite adhesive magnet buyers attach to non-magnetic surfaces. The packaging is simple, and the installation equally so. Peel off the MagSkin and apply it to the back of your iPhone and you’re ready start slapping your phone to your fridge, and well, wherever you stick the MagDock. The MagSkin can be pulled off and re-applied to the iPhone and doesn’t leave any adhesive residue on the device.




    The only real problem with the MagDock? Finding something to stick it to. As I wandered throughout my house the only thing I could find that had the necessary magnetic properties was my refrigerator, washer, and dryer. Obviously if I had an army of MagDocks littered around the house this wouldn’t be a problem. But, most people will only need a few placed in key positions to make the purchase well worth it. That said, walking around the office is different. Filing cabinets, desks, and more filing cabinets provide
    plenty of magnetic space to attach your phone.




    However, it is worth noting that not all refrigerators are created equal. My neighbor’s has far more “sticking” power than mine. Don’t try to throw your phone onto your fridge. You’ll have a bad time. Ultimately the MagSkin is an interesting product from and Indie designer that is definitely worth your attention and consideration.

    I rather stick with my lifeproof case, but if someone gave me this I won't mind ha. This is probably something I would buy to show off or amaze my friends.

    And of course the obvious thought is "Hey, let's stick some magnets to my electronic devices ! Why not!"

    Am I the only one thinking this is a little iffy ?

    I think if the magnets caused a problem with the device it would have come to light by now... he has been working on this project for some time you realise.

    My girlfriend could use something like this at work. Her desk has so much paperwork all over the place the only free spot to put anything is on the side of her filing cabinet.

    I really hope this happens for me, as my magma really needs a skin, it keeps cooling too quickly.

    Scares me too! I erase tapes n hard drives for a living. Cool idea, but gives me shivers. I hate syncing and re-syncing.
