Place for License!

At iCache, we listen to our customers and your great feedback.

One of the issues that has been brought to our attention is "where do I put my license?"

We have put together several designs and would love your feedback. There are (8) designs listed #1 - #8. Please let us know your thoughts.

We will also put a survey on Facebook which enables voting. You can reply to us here or through the Facebook survey.

      I love concept 7 with a mirrored finish on the front that would fold completely against the back of the case, and even perhaps be magnetized to the back so it stays against the back, so it's out of the way of use when you're on your iPhone.

    2. Creator Giovanni Pandolfi on April 20, 2012

      If you can take it out and only use it when you want to I will take #7 or #4. Thanks.

    3. Creator Stephen Warren on April 18, 2012

      7 with a leather feel

    4. Creator Andy Flood on April 16, 2012

      Concept 7

    5. Creator Jeffrey Neong on April 12, 2012

      #1 or #8 seem the cleanest simplest solutions. Especially if either could support an extra card or two in case.

    6. Creator Chris on April 9, 2012

      #7 or add enough room to slide in with the universal card

    7. Creator Ki on April 9, 2012

      I like #6 and #7

    8. Creator Kevin Laws on April 8, 2012

      Love concept #7. Today I use the BookBook iPhone case/wallet. This solves the main problem that has of too few card spaces. As much as I like the concept of moving to only one, I suspect the convenience of frequent use cards mean + need for a license means several slots will be valuable. The geode card will be incredibly useful for my rare use cards (Costco, gym, backup credit card, etc.)

    9. Creator John on April 3, 2012

      I like #7.
      Would prefer that it slide into a slot with or next to Geode card to avoid added thickness and awkwardness of removing something to use e-ink screen. I think any adopted solution should be optional so user can choose to have the addition bulk or not.
      my $.02

    10. Creator Ross Gibson on April 3, 2012

      #7, but make it have only 2 pockets so it doesn't get too thick.

    11. Creator John Barneson on March 30, 2012

      I like #8

    12. Creator Ewan Abas on March 29, 2012

      I like #8.

    13. Creator M Straaten on March 29, 2012

      leave it to you nothing big or bulky, detachable and still look great with or without it.

    14. Creator Stella Violano on March 28, 2012

      I like #5. It snaps on, looks great and holds the Drivers license plus a bit of cash or another ID.

    15. Creator Adam Boyes on March 27, 2012

      #4 for me

    16. Creator Marty on March 27, 2012

      Need something easy and that can hold just a drivers license and maybe a few bills for cash. Don't need something bulky or something to add. Need something like concept 1 or something magnetic.

    17. Creator Matt on March 27, 2012

      1 - simple and flexible (can hold 1 or maybe more cards, incl. money)
      2 - only holds 1 card and uses adhesive - NO
      3 - too loose for one card? odd design, seems too bulky - NO
      4 - better than 3 but uses adhesive - NO
      5 - too big and fiddly, covers up too much of the geode card, making it difficult to get out - NO
      6 - pouch will collect dust, see-thru plastic will get dirty, adhesive - NO
      7 - good concept especially for travel but uses adhesive, woud prefer snap on - second choice
      8 - adhesive but good concept - third choice

    18. Creator Alan Fahrner on March 27, 2012

      I'm not keen on anything that involves adhesive...would rather have something that snaps on or is magnetic...

    19. Creator Arturo Dingfelder on March 27, 2012

      #1 7 & 8 in that order

    20. Creator Yasyf Mohamedali on March 27, 2012

      #1 for sure

    21. Creator Michael Damkier on March 27, 2012

      Sign me up for no. 7. That seems to be practical in many ways. Doesn't cover up the e-ink panel, slots for a few things like some cash, receipts, etc., and it covers the phone (not so important to me but if it looks nice, hey, cool).
      I'm really looking forward to this. There are many times when this will be all I need to carry.

    22. Creator Brendan on March 27, 2012

      #1 and #4

    23. Creator Tom Seago on March 27, 2012

      I second the comment about magnets. They do NOT seem like a good plan.

      All others besides #1 seem to rely on adhesive. I keep imagining the moment the adhesive comes unstuck. My gut tells me it will be only a week after I started carrying the geode as my wallet. I'd then have a sticky mess of goo gumming up my shiny new toy, not to mention a messy pocket. Ick.

      The friction based design #1 seems good. Plus, it doesn't cover the screen, which is one of the big reasons to buy the geode in the first place. I vote #1.

    24. Creator David Simerly on March 27, 2012

      Concept #4: Magnets? Really? I don't know about your state, but in CA our DL's have a magnetic strip on them. So do some other forms of ID. I think the use of magnets disqualifies #4.

      I like #1 and #7. Since these are all "add-on's," hopefully you will be able to produce 2-3 different ones that we can choose from. Wormen will probably like different options than men. I'm really looking forward to getting the Geode. Thanks!

    25. Creator Brenda Kosky Deskin on March 27, 2012

      I like concept 7. If someone gives you a card, you can keep it there until you are able to scan it. Also need somewhere to keep my health and social insurance cards.

    26. Creator Boris Liebert on March 27, 2012

      First of all i like Concept 7, thats like a little business style and the cards are save in a closed wallet and also the possibility to store some other cards, like drive license and id.
      Then concept 4 seemed to be also very good, because its not to big (its similar to the first pictures)
      the other concepts are to big or i thing the open stuff could cause a problem... loosing the cards.

    27. Creator Jason Skaare on March 27, 2012

      I'm a fan of #7, as I like being able to carry more than one code, as well as have another way to protect the front of my phone while it is in my pocket (a primary consideration in all my cases, and something I've been worried about in planning the switch to the Geode)

    28. Creator Matt Putfark on March 27, 2012

      Concept 2

    29. Creator Steve Liebermensch on March 27, 2012

      Combine 1 and 7... As this is also a "case" for the beyond, the clip also provides a mechanism to attaching to something other than slipping into pocket, purse, or murse...

    30. Creator Anna C. Lindow on March 27, 2012

      i like 3, 4, and 5 but NOT the ones where the ID is exposed, and NOT 7 or 8 because the cloth will make it hard to slide in and out of my back pocket.

      i think many of us need space for metrocard/cash in addition to license so i would push for that to be available.

    31. Creator Engineer Doug on March 27, 2012

      Love 7. Will allow me to just not have a wallet.

    32. Creator Matt Fagala on March 27, 2012

      Concept 3

    33. Creator Bob Breznak on March 27, 2012

      I like #2 the best, followed by #1. I think that I'll still need to carry a wallet as I have things like a Charlie Card (subway pass) and other cards that I carry in addition to my license.

    34. Creator Dustin Harmon on March 27, 2012

      Concept 4 is the ideal product enhancement. Ergonomically it would be easiest to hold and also it would hide the majority of the ugly license photos out there. lol

    35. Creator Brian Schmitt on March 27, 2012

      I like 6 or 7, anything else covers up the e-ink display and must be messed with so the e-ink display can be scanned/read. In 6 & 7, I prefer they cover the back of the phone and then easily swing out of the way to reveal the e-ink display. I reference the front of my phone too much to have it covered. I like #1 because of the money clip, but the rigidity and covering the e-ink means I have to remove my cash and my license to use it.

    36. Creator James Murgatroyd on March 27, 2012

      I like concept #7

    37. Creator John Boyea on March 27, 2012

      I like #1. Clean and simple but functional. The issue I have with all of them (other than 7) is they hide the eInk display. 7 just seems like it would not work well / hold up over time.

    38. Creator jeffrey darnell on March 27, 2012

      concept #1. it's minimal, but I'm pretty sure I will switch over to a money clip as any add-on option will be less than ideal. I like the idea of the functionality #1.

    39. Creator Caleb Clotiaux on March 27, 2012

      How about a magnetic version of number 5?

    40. Creator Stephen Tow on March 27, 2012

      I would prefer 4, 5, or 6. My issues with #4 and #5 is that the pocket should be able to come off and on with ease so I can use the barcode scanner and hopefully the pocket could securely hold the license and whatever else you put in there when it's not connected to the phone. I would consider #6 if the flap can hold its place when it isn't open. I don't want to talk on the phone with a flap hanging from it. Can we not make the colors of the pockets or flap orange? The color should be the color of the case (ex. black). I don't want the extra pocket or flap to draw attention from everything else. I think #7 defeats the whole purpose of the geode, unless you make it like a smart cover/stand.

    41. Creator Michael Griffith on March 27, 2012

      All of them mean that you are having to uncover the e-ink back panel to use that function - an extra step. I plan to carry a small money clip for cash and ID. Option 7, on the other hand, acts as a nice screen protector while in my pocket.

    42. Creator Peter Squicciarini on March 27, 2012

      I'm all about keeping it thin! 1, 2, or 8 for me.

    43. Creator Angelo Russo on March 27, 2012

      where is the inkwell (upc code) on option 1? I like 1 or 8 as well. The rest do add way too much bulk. adhesives never work well, you need a clip or something like that.

      Also, would be nice if we could read the 4pt font that is blurred in the above pictures to fully understand it.

    44. Creator Mark Moskovitz on March 27, 2012

      Ditto to Joseph Lima: Agreed make #7 a smart cover and I'll like it. The other designs seem to really thicken the phone considerably (other than flimsy #6) which is a deterring in general.

    45. Creator Kelvin Liu on March 27, 2012

      Keeping it as thin as possible is key considering the extra bulk of the Geode itself already and the idea that its meant to replace a wallet. To me this seems like 1 or 8.

    46. Creator Greg Heuer on March 27, 2012

      I'm good with 1, 6, or 7.

    47. Creator Joseph Lima on March 27, 2012

      Agreed make #7 a smart cover and I'll like it. The other designs seem to really thicken the phone considerably (other than flimsy #6) which is a deterring in general.
