Stacked Labs – The Journey
In 2012 we embarked on a journey, one that endeavored to change the way people protect and charge their iPhones. I believe we’ve achieved the first hurdle of our goal – we call it GoStacked.
When we first set out to create a true Hybrid Smart Case for iPhone, we envisioned a case that would work alongside the iPhone, helping users with a better alternative to the case decision-making process. This case would quickly transform into a different case depending on the user’s need for that day. This case would address the problem of "one feature per case.” The case’s core would have to be designed with a strong foundation because it is the lifeline for the device cards that will work alongside the iPhone. The case would also need to be a universal one, with the ability to adapt to current technologies and future ones.
We envisioned a case that is easy to use, integrates seamlessly with any device card, and optimizes itself for each user without jeopardizing his or her privacy. It would not put a strain on the iPhone’s performance or the user’s experience.
This case would have a companion app with a user interface panel to control the stacked device cards called "GoStacked+ App for iPhone". The app would also be a tool to collect information based on the GoStacked user’s charging habits and would constantly update through a portal to their GoStacked Account. The information in this account would help them get the most out of their iPhone experience. This app would receive and give feedback to the user while adapting the changes to the Auto-Charge feature.
In all this we’ve succeeded. In short— GoStacked: The Hybrid Smart Case for iPhone, "How will you be Stacked today?".
We have come a long way. The days of buying three or four different cases because of their features are over. During the next few months we will be busy gathering feedback through Kickstarter, working on prototype adjustments, and fixing bugs that generally creep up during the beta testing period. We will also be adding many more features to the GoStacked family between now and the end of the year. We appreciate your patience during this process and welcome any ideas you may have to make our product better.
The road ahead is still challenging, with many new, exciting features and devices being added. I hope you will enjoy using GoStacked and encourage you to take part in it.
