PhoneSoap – Cleanse Your Mobile Device – Disinfect Your Phone – Like a Pro


We have mentioned the fabulous products at PhoneSoap in the past but now there’s even more impetitous to mention them with the CoronoVirus showing no signs of abating anytime soon.

PhoneSoap is phenomenal, particularly if you have an aversion to germs, as I do. It kills 99.9% of germs, even with the case on, leave it on and it will clean it too.  There’s a reason they sell this product in hospitals and the reason is it’s trusted by physicans to clean their equipment, thoroughly.

We can’t help touching dirty things – handrails, money, gym equipment, and the list goes on. The problem is when we touch our phones we then pass the bacteria from our hands to our devices. It’s easy to wash our hands, but we don’t wash our phones, which is why the average smartphone shows 18x more bacteria than a public restroom/toilet. The bacteria on our devices thrive and can make us sick.

PhoneSoap claim the The average phone is crawling with 18 times more bacteria than a public restroom. That means you’re just as likely to get sick from your phone as from the handles in the bathroom. Your phone breeds more bacteria, too. Your phone’s battery keeps it warm, and when it’s stored in warm, dark places like your pocket or purse, the bacteria multiply’ – yuck!

So, you’re wondering how PhoneSoap works, it’s simple, place your cell phone in your PhoneSoap and close the lid. During a 10-minute cycle, a powerful UV-C light kills harmful germs, viruses, and bacteria. When the external blue indicator turns off, your cell phone is completely clean.

This UV-C light effectively destroys nucleic acids and breaks apart bacteria DNA. With their DNA broken, bacteria can’t function or reproduce, and the organisms die.

In nature, the UV-C light that causes this germicidal effect is harmful to our eyes but is blocked by Earth’s atmosphere. In the PhoneSoap’s controlled environment, UV-C light effectively and safely sanitises your cell phone, as well as anything else that fits inside your PhoneSoap like remotes, keys, tablets, and more.

I reached out to our contacts at PhoneSoap earlier this week, to see if, as before, they would offer our loyal readers a product discount. Sadly, they replied ‘We’ve actually sold out of our inventory and are running presales at the moment. For that reason, we are not offering any discounts’. So, even though we can’t offer you a discount code, I would still recommend you go to their site and preorder, this is a purchase you won’t regret in a hurry. I have one and I regularly clean my personal device, as well as my families.

Hipstamatic Goes Back to the Future with an All New Point-and-Shoot App for iPhone

Hipstamatic X

Hipstamatic, the company that invented mobile photo filters and one of the oldest app companies in America, celebrates its tenth birthday with a return to retro. The company is launching a new app inspired by its original app tomorrow. Hipstamatic X is an instant film-like camera created exclusively for iPhone. This camera brings all the joy, quirk, and randomness of film photography to your pocket. Why spend hours editing? Never waste another moment swiping filters, pulling sliders, or tweaking effects.


“A decade is a long time, and while we’ve seen loads of photo apps enter and exit the category over the past ten years, Hipstamatic X is a return to what inspired them all. The joy of instant film and the availability of your iPhone are what make this product special,” said Lucas Allen Buick, Co-Founder, “The ‘fun’ of photography has really been drained over the years as we all worry about perfection. The brilliance of a point-and-shoot is that it captures a moment in time and as the photographer you are free to continue to experience those moments without stopping to edit and share.”

Hipstamatic X will be available on October 1st as a FREE download exclusively on iOS. A subscription which unlocks the company’s archive of filters and presets will also be available.

“This is just the beginning of Hipstamatic’s return to retro”, said Ryan Dorshorst, Co-Founder, “Our mission is to blur the line between the new world of computational photography and old-school instant film.”

Hipstamatic X


Hipstamatic X includes a camera bag full of nostalgic cameras from the past, including Pinhole, Tintype, and Fisheye. “Utilizing new technology like depth capture we are able to more accurately reproduce these old photographic techniques,“ said Dorshorst. It also includes a brand-new Eazy™ Camera which harnesses the automagical power of machine learning to pick the perfect photo filter depending on what you are shooting.

Hipstamatic X


Pictures taken with Hipstamatic X have their very own look and unique character; artistic and painted with light and quirk. Hipstamatic images are sometimes surprising and offer a delicate beauty, turning any iPhone into an instant art making machine.
