adhesive-note paperback case for iPhone 5

based out of portland, iLoveHandles have designed an physical solution for taking notes on an iPhone. the ‘paperback’ adhesive notes act as a card stock case for smartphones, allowing users to create a quick sketch or make a shopping list the old-fashioned way. slap it on the back of your phone and you’re good to go — it’s always more satisfying to cross off an item with real ink. the sticky-note pages have a removable adhesive on the majority of the surface, keeping the paper flat on your iPhone without peeling off in your pocket. use them one at a time, or put a small stack on the back of your phone to use later. the pad comes with 80 sheets and can be bought for 7.95 USD here.

  • is this a Joke?…

    luisEfe80 says:
  • doesn’t the iphone have reminders? or notes? or something…

    joão teixeira says:
  • love the merging of low and high tech

    but, where to keep the pen…

    dbkii says:
  • obvious questions, guys.
    but maybe you missed the point.

    Instead, I’d ask myself if I would buy this (for example) to make a present to some friend.
    I’d say yes… a lot of people would say: nice gadget!

    This is the typical unuseful idea that people likes a lot! This means it’s a good idea.
    They will sell a lot of these…

    sorry for the pragmatism 😉

  • I’ll just stick with the notes app thanks.

    wpgmb says:
  • could quite possibley be the worst invention of all time. how did this even get published.

    bob says:
  • what a great concept. What sort of a need has their phone on all the time in the bottom of the shopping basket?

    Gregory Gilmour says:
  • Don’t you write your notes and reminders in your phone?

    Ludmilla says:
  • Doesn’t the iphone5 have a flash.. wouldn’t want to be caught out in the dark.

    Jacob says:
  • This is amazing.
    I love this idea. Considering my obsession with post-it notes. I have them on the front of my agenda, binder, and even macbook (next to track pad). The very fact that its on my phone would be awesome! Considering the amount of times I pick it up. And having something like “weekly goals/tasks” would be so convenient for someone like me.
    Personally I dont remember to open my notes app often, and paper and pen is more ideal for me as a student! Like the commenter above said, low tech meets high tech! awesome…. only problem. I’m a new android user!!!!!!!!!!

    IMAN says:
  • This is genius, I saw it and instantly clicked on it. Different, fun, new, it’s great. I love to draw, so if i had this i could have a new phone case 80 days in a row if i wanted. I want this. Ay my dood, make one for the iphone 4 please.

    Chris says:
  • good idea! love it!

    raquel says:
  • Love this product! I see some haters in the comments but I am constantly putting sticky-notes on my phone or folding up tiny pieces of paper and shoving them into the back of my phone case so I remember to take them home with me. I like the gadgets my phone provides but I love making handwritten lists. Putting something on a list in my phone is really useless for me because I will forget to check and use the list. Can’t wait until they are back in stock!

    Megan says:
  • This is THEE BEST!! I love hand writing my to do lists so that I can check things off… I LOVE THE IDEA!!

    GORU says:
  • Is a funny idea, but I think that this product is unnecessary and it isn´t well design, becouse most of the time the paper is going to be dirty and colud be broken, in the other hand the iPhone has its own notes application, reminders…..summin-up they could have thought in a funny objet but at the same time usfull
