When the InkCase Plus first went up on Kickstarter in July I thought that this was the one hardware project which was guaranteed to ship on time. Alas, that hasn’t happened – at least not for me.
Based on the simple and obvious idea of modular components, the InkCase Plus was going to be a universal smartphone case which would add a 3.5″ secondary E-ink screen to almost any smartphone. Originally scheduled to ship in October, the InkCase was delayed into early November, late November, and then with profuse apologies it was absolutely positively guaranteed to ship in early December.
It’s now 17 December, and my order hasn’t arrived. To make matters worse, the company developing the InkCase Plus isn’t returning my emails any more.
I may have been among the first to post a review of the InkCase Plus, but I’m definitely not one of the lucky few to get their order in the first shipment, or the second shipment (even though I did put down my own money).
Hardware is great so far, light and the case works.
Software – poor
So far it only really works for the photos and eReader. Is there an option to get it to work with Google Music etc?
Lastly the notifications option is giving to much information i.e “choose input” notification is useless this is just my keyboard or “com.android” this is a running process. How is the software coming along?
Since I am unable to write anything about my unit, I am dying to read what you think of yours.
Did your order arrive?
Please let me know what you think of it, while I go over to the corner to die of jealousy.
