Flipcase is the first game that makes full use of Apple's new iPhone 5c dotted case

Apple not only released two new iPhones this year - for the first time the Cupertino company also released cases for them, and the colorful dotted one for the iPhone 5c was particularly eye-catching. Developers from Bytesize were the first to notice you could use it for more than just protection. You can actually use it for fun by just flipping it to cover the screen and using the dots in a new game called Flipcase.

The premise of the game is simple. You attach the case to the front and tap through the holes. It’s a multiplayer game so you have to compete with a friend over being the first to complete four in a row.

The only requirement is an iPhone 5c case, but you don’t need the actual iPhone 5c to play the game and you can also play on the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5. It’s free on the App Store.

I'd give it points for originality, but its pointless because you could just download a connect 4 app instead.

You got it wrong - you can't plug them up! The holes are to make the iPhone 0.01g lighter and to dissipate heat! Apple design team logic.

How does adding a case make the phone lighter? iSh-eeps just keep getting dumber with every new iPhone release.

It's not that hard to understand. What he meant is the holes of the case caused the case to be lighter, and easier to dissipate heat, WHILE protecting the phone. Not sure who is the dumber.

He meant it,but ''The holes are to make the iPhone 0,01g lighter'' in no way can be understood that the holes make the case lighter...

Read the whole sentence. He was clearly comparing the cases in 2 condition: 1)fitting them properly, and 2)use them like shown in the video. So it makes perfect sense.

Innovation? More like "proper utilization."

Wow I wonder how much this case costs so I can play Connect Four on it.... anyway there are hazards with holy cases, dust build up in the exposed areas leaving a stencilled dirt pattern which could leave scratch imprints each time you remove it, also with any spills, fluids will pool in them so there is more time for liquids to seep into the home button and screen edge. Could be useful in Church if the Holy water runs out, you can get multiple dippers at once.

How practical....take off your case anytime you want to play a stupid game. What a joke.
