How to waterproof your iPhone 6, Android, or any other smartphone with this cheap aLOKSAK plastic bag

The aLOKSAK is a cheap and simple way to waterproof any device - be it a phone or a tablet. The advantages of the aLOKSAK are obvious: it’s light and easy to carry with you, and it fits all sizes and formats.
The aLOKSAK could then be used for things like underwater photography, as you get full access to the touchscreen of your phone, and if you’re trying to read in the swimming pool without risking to ruin your gadget, it’s a nice option.
Finally, the aLOKSAK is disposable and comes in batches (you can have three packs for around $8 for smaller sizes). If you need something to waterproof your device, without feeling the need to shell hundreds of dollars for a waterproof case, that might just be your option.

I think we just read an article about a "special" plastic bag can waterproof your phone.

LOL, a hefty/ziplock back will work just as well. Someone went to too much trouble to "design" this. Sounds like the old NASA program that spent millions, to develop an ink pen that would work in zero gravity. They showed it at some science thingy and someone asked a soviet astronaut what he thought about such breakthrough technology and they responded "we just use pencil"...
