The Instant Photo Lab is compatible with colour, black-and-white, gold / silver framed and colour framed Polaroid film, so you’re free to experiment and find the best combination for each photo you want to print.

Guess has been a staple of the international design scene for 30 years, and they’ve now lent their trademark style to a collection of iPhone 4 cases. Today we’re going to look at one of these cases in two different colourways – the Guess iPhone 4 / 4S Hard Case in Crocodile Cream and Crocodile.
So of course the big draw of these iPhone 4S cases is their exclusive Guess design, with a faux crocodile skin look. The skin has a delicate finish not found on most other iPhone 4S covers, with an embossed metal Guess logo near the bottom. In both colours, these cases look fantastic and will add a lot of style to your iPhone.
The case will keep your iPhone 4S or 4 safe too, with the tough polycarbonate construction providing good protection without adding a lot of bulk. That means you’re free to show off your phone without worrying about any accidental drops or knocks.
If you’re looking for a case with a unique sense of style and sophistication, just like Guess itself, then this is the perfect case for you. For more information and photographs of this beautiful case, then please check out the product pages linked below in the colourway of your choice.
The iPad’s Smart Cover is a very cool piece of kit, with a single stylish piece serving as both a protective layer and a fold-out stand. The TidyTilt takes that same idea and applies it to the iPhone 4 and 4S, protecting the rear from scratches and other damage while also working as a slick landscape mode stand. The TidyTilt also keeps your headphones tidy and allows you to mount your iPhone magnetically to any Iron, Nickel or Cobalt-based surface.
The TidyTilt is made of soft polyurethane. When placed on the back of the phone, the rear cover will be well protected from scratches and scuffs. The dimpled surface also provides extra grip, ensuring it’s easier to hold onto your iPhone. You can also use it to clean the screen of the iPhone. You install a thin metallic ring to the rear of the phone when you first get the TidyTilt, and then you can add and remove the TidyTilt easily from there on out.
The TidyTilt folds up into a triangular prism to act as a stand for the iPhone. It works in both portrait and landscape orientations at multiple angles, making it ideal for watching out for incoming notifications or seeing the latest in TV streamed from the Apple store. The TidyTilt also allows you to easily remove and tidy your headphone cables, keeping them straight and untangled until you’re ready to use them once more.
The TidyTilt uses strong neodymium magnets to operate, which are strategically placed within the brushed stainless steel frame. As well as capturing your headphones and attaching the smart cover, these magnets also serve to attach your iPhone to any magnetically responsive surface.
This SmartCover Style Stand is definitely a great iPhone accessory for any Apple fan. For more information on this handy combined stand and cover, check out the product page linked just below:
Freshfiber are part of a new wave of smaller case manufacturers that have sprung up on the back of newly affordable 3D printing technologies. With some cool fresh designs, Freshfiber have carved out a reputation as a great new case maker and their latest iPhone 4 accessories are definitely worth a look. Here are two of their best cases, which will fit the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S.
The first case, shown here on the left, is the Freshfiber Boombox case. This iPhone case salutes the days of old with a classic boombox design, with a load of intricate details. There’s even a handle which works as a kickstand for your phone – a really nice touch. The Freshfiber Boombox case is available in a friendly matte dark gray colour.
Our second case, to the right of the picture above, is the Freshfiber Cassette case. Like the Boombox, it’s a nod to the retro technology that kicked off the personal music revolution and got us to where we are today. There’s a ‘mix tape’ inscription that adds to the case’s bold red look.
Both cases cover the back and corners of your iPhone, protecting them from damage whilst leaving cutouts wherever necessary for the buttons, ports and the camera.
