At a tailgate and no one brought a bottle opener? Maybe you can use one of the tricks you learned in college: Use a lighter, bang it on a table… but if you’ve got your phone wrapped in an Intoxicase Plus, you’ll always have an opener at hand.
Not just some novelty case with an opener welded to it, the Intoxicase Plus ($45) was specifically designed to withstand heavy use. (And you heavy users know who you are…) Slim and made of solid polycarbonate to protect your iPhone from dents, dings and scratches, the opener is crafted from stainless steel, and was “evaluated by dozens bartenders (with) hundreds of bottles opened.” Good enough for bartenders, good enough for me.
And if having solid phone protection that’s your personal bottle popper isn’t enough for you, the Intoxicase Plus comes with a free app. The app features sound effects that play when you open a bottle, a counter that keeps track of how many bottles you’ve opened, and the ability to share your enjoyment of a cold one with the world via social media. And should your counter start winding up too high on a given night, you can also use the app to call a cab to get your beer-soaked self home.
So basically it’ll not only protect your phone, but you too.

If you haven't been completely content with the stock Contacts app on your renowned Cupertino handset, and were wishing there was a little more to squeeze out of it -- there might just be something in the App Store waiting to meet your needs. Enter Savi People. The 99-cent application essentially brings all your address book connections into one hub, but what separates it from the Contacts you've come to know is its integration with most of your preferred social networks -- you know, the likes of Twitter, Facebook and, with the latest update, Instagram. Assuming you give Savi People the credentials to get into your accounts, you'll be tweeting, sending direct messages and posting on people's walls in no time directly from the app. You can grab Savi People for a little less than a dollar right now, though that could change at any time as it is a "special" price.
