About this project
Check out our press coverage below:
"The Tuidle definitely does as advertised: one-handed use of the iPhone is a lot easier with it. At $10 (US shipping included) this case is definitely worth it."- wired.com
"It looks like a great idea, and it is dirt cheap" - Cultofmac
"The Tuidle for iPhone 4/4S enhances the portability and ease of use of the iPhone" - Accessorygeeks

"This Kickstarter project dubbed the Tuidle might be something worth checking out." - Ubergizmo
[UPDATE: Hello folks. If you are waiting for the new iPhone you may have to wait until October release and then another month or so for you to get your hands on one. Read this press from imore.com. We have kept the price point low so that we can have a large sales revenue. This will help us in making Tuidle for the new iPhone as well as other smartphones. So please help out buy pledging a minimum of $8 (+$2 shipping for U.S) for one Tuidle. Thanks]
Have you ever felt the need to use your iPhone with one hand? Like when lying down, playing games, or when holding onto something with your other hand? Notice that while you can hold the phone with one hand, trying to type with the same hand is cumbersome to say the least.
This is where Tuidle helps.
Tuidle allows you to hold and operate your iPhone with one hand (by using the thumb). This results in a very favorable user experience allowing you to comfortably multitask. Whether you are holding onto the bus railing with one hand and using the phone with the other, or while walking your dog with one hand and using the phone with the other, Tuidle liberates your other hand so you can concentrate on the task at 'hand'. Another added bonus with Tuidle is that you'll never drop your phone (think using the phone in the toilet!).
With Tuidle your experience with internet browsing, video chatting, watching movies, playing games—in any position—will never be the same. Please watch our video below to see some of the uses of Tuidle. We did our very best with our limited budget to show you some of the uses of Tuidle, but its hard to show in a video just how Tuidle 'feels'.
Here are some of the features of Tuidle
Some additional features of Tuidle
We have been at work designing and testing this idea for over two years. Many designs later we think we have finally perfected the experience. We even filed a full utility patent on the concept more than two years ago. But coming up with the perfect design wasn't easy. We joined forces with the Baren-Boym Company and with their help, we tweaked Tuidle until it was the most functional and comfortable case on the market. Finalizing the design, we developed 3D printed prototypes for testing; sure enough the experience was revolutionary!
As of April 2012, we have funded and executed the injection molding process.This will enable us to scale to commercial production levels in June.The mold is being made at MPS Plastics in Connecticut.
We need your help! We need to close enough funding to ensure we meet minimum order quantity requirements from our suppliers (all of which are based in the USA).
It’s time to change the way you think about protecting your phone. It’s not a case...it’s Tuidle!
Tuidle will be available in stock colors below (for pledges of $25 or more):
