Flipcase Turns Your iPhone 5c Case Into Real Connect Four


No matter what you think of Apple’s new iPhone 5c case — and, just for the record, I think it’s an eyesore — I think we can all at least agree that it ooks an awful lot like Mattel’s famous game, Connect Four. If only it actually worked that way…

Well, now it does, thanks to a clever app called Flipcase.

The idea behind Flipcase couldn’t be simpler. Just download the app, open it up, then take your iPhon 5c case off and flip it around the front of the device. Done! You’re now ready to play Connect Four just by tapping your iPhone 5c’s screen through the dots. When you’ve won, just shake to undo.

Here’s a video of it in action:

Flipcase is free, although you will need an iPhone 5c and an iPhone 5c case, so from another point-of-view, this is one of the world’s most expensive games of Connect Four.
