  • Story Leather Testimonial - My gorgeous iPhone & iPad cases

    Posted on August 19, 2015 by Jerry Lee

    Pamela from Texas loves us and we are happy to be included in her Purrple collection. Her testimonial below:

    "I wanted to share my photos with everyone of my gorgeous iPhone & iPad cases.  I have the new iPad Air 2 & the iPhone plus, couple that with my extreme love (heart icon) for the color Purrple .  The quality of material is excellent & it looks even better in person. "

    Pamela was also kind enough to share her personal style with us:

    What does personal style mean to you? I have very unusual personal style. I ONLY wear, buy & have shades of Purple in my life.   I have created my own personal style & I surround myself & my husband with it as even our home is decorated with shades of purple on the walls and everything that's in it.
    What are some style “do’s” and “don’ts” you try to follow? I do what I think looks good on me and I don't follow the trends just to be following them I make my own !!!
    Are there any recent trends that you loved or hated? I started dying my hair Purrple 3 years ago before anyone else so I started a trend that is the one i Love.    Girls with their hair shaved on one side, I don't get it. That's the one I hate.
    How did you come across Story Leather and what was your first purchase? I googled:  Purple Leather case for iphone 6 plus  and I purchased  iphone 6 plus case, ipad air 2 case & a wallet for my husband

    Thank you Pamela for the love and this wonderful testimonial!

  • Best New Phones in 2015 – Your Shopping List

    Posted on August 12, 2015 by Jerry Lee

    2015 has already been a very good year for the smartphones aficionados and it’s bound to get even better. If you are thinking about changing your phone this year, then this article is for you; check out all the exciting new launches and choose your next companion carefully.

    1. iPhone 6s Plus. This September, Apple fans are in for a treat – the new massive iPhone 6s Plus will be released and it promises more than a large screen. It will feature the new Apple A9 chip, an upgraded camera (maybe 12 Mp) and a battery with larger capacity. The downside is that no major design changes are expected, even though few people have forgotten about Bendgate. But, hey, nothing that can’t be fixed with the right phone case, right?
    2. Google Nexus 5. This is not yet the dual SIM we were expecting, but it’s a major step for Google; the giant’s collaboration with Huawei brings high-end specs in a medium price range. The best thing about this phone is that it be the first to run the lates OS from Google, Android M.
    3. HTC One M9. If you are an HTC fan and loved HTC one M8, then you don’t need to read about the other phones in our list, as you’ll surely go for this one. While the design hasn’t changed much from the M8 version (why change it if it ain’t broken, right?), the M9 features a scratch-resistant coating, a sapphire glass camera lens and a very, very stylish two-tone effect.
    4. LG G4. This is “the most ambitious smartphone yet.” But then again, these are company’s own words, so let’s take a closer look: leather or ceramic options for the case, a 5.5” display, 32 GB of internal storage + the possibility of microSD insertion and, probabably the best feature, a 3000 mAh removable battery.
    5. Microsoft Lumia 940. OK, we know that Microsoft smartphones don’t have that many fans, but this one is definitely worth a shot. Aside from the exceptional camera that we’ve grown accustomed to in Lumia phones, both the 940 and the 940 XL (yes, there is such a version, too) come with full Windows 10. In a nutshell, this means that Microsoft has finally managed to fix the OS issues and now Windows 10 can run smoothly across all platforms (phones, tablets and computers). So, it will offer its users perfect interoperability (unless you have a Mac, of course. If so, see no. 1, please) and seamless integration with all devices and a very affordable price (or so the rumor has it).

    What’s your favorite phone of 2015? Let us know in the comment section below. And, while we’re at this: if you’ve already decided on a phone, did you also consider a phone case for it? After all, such an investment needs protection, doesn’t it? Oh, and if you’re worried about having trouble finding a case for your brand new phone, remember you can always have your very own custom phone case – it’s just a click away.

  • A Flash-story About Technology’s Interchangeability

    Posted on June 3, 2015 by Andrew Franco

    During Andre’s break and/ or lunch, he would pull an iPad out of his backpack and give it the same utilization that one does a cell phone. I had never seen that. I mean, I’ve seen my parents use their iPads while their iPhones sit nearby, but their purpose was to do some quick research on a topic. So there was never any reason for caution, until now.

    I later found out from him that he broke his phone, and that the iPad, which he had previously only used for its basic functions, was now “[his] everything!” This example validates that even when one piece of technology breaks, there are other connected devices on which to depend, as the average amount is five devices per household.

    In fact, in a survey of 1,000 American Households conducted by Chetan Sharma, Olga Kharif of Bloomberg’s Tech Blog states, “more than 6 percent of households own more than 15 connected devices, which includes smartphones, tablets, gaming consoles, TVs and digital frames. That high number will become the norm for a growing percentage of consumers in the coming years, said Sharma. He estimated that about 70 to 80 percent of these gadgets can access the Internet via wireless connections.”

    The area of accessibility onto which technology has found itself is revealing. Most, if not all, technological devices offer similar functions, i.e. they can be used in lieu of one another or for the same purposes. In the foreseeable future, one can assume that all devices will be nearly interchangeable, with their only remaining differences being shape, size, and style.

  • 8 Factoids That You May Not Know About Snapchat

    Posted on June 2, 2015 by Andrew Franco

    1. 1. I know, it feels like it’s been here since we have, or maybe that’s just me projecting. Still, Snapchat has exceedingly made its way to the top height of social media. But it was first launched in July 2011. Its safe to say that it’s had a quick rise and is only gaining more popularity with its users.

    1. 2. I don’t know which name I like better, but did you know that Snapchat was formerly known as Picaboo?

    1. 3. Yes, there are many adults that have found their way to the app, with help from their sons and/ or daughters or curiosity. However, they make up only a minority of the users, while  71% of Snapchat users are under the age of 25.

    1. 4. Rather it has any relevance to you or not, it’s something to pontificate that, of the users of Snapchat, roughly 70% are women.

    1. 5. Personally, I go days without posting to my snapchat story or sending any direct snaps to anyone, but, like voting, my number does not matter. There are 400 million snapchats sent per day.

    1. 6. 100 million monthly active users? That’s one seventh of the fraction of the amount of people in this world-- all users of one app. Wow.

    1. 7. Of the millennial internet users, about 30% access Snapchat regularly, the word regularly probably being a vague understatement.

      1. 8. In comparison with the other truths and approximations, this number reads low. Out of all the United States’ social media users, only 18% use Snapchat.

  • Release of the Iron Man-themed Galaxy S6 Edge

    Posted on June 1, 2015 by Andrew Franco

    image source:

    In tandem with the promotion of Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, Marvel has partnered with Samsung to create a limited edition, Iron Man- themed Galaxy S6 Edge. The limited edition phone was first teased a few weeks ago, with Samsung unveiling only the box which held the iconic Iron Man mask on its front in its recognizable red and gold.

    Image courtesy of Samsung
    Now, weeks later, Samsung has decided to release the phone. It is currently only available in South Korea and by June will have made its way to China and Hong Kong. This Iron Man-styled phone targets a specific demographic, but its sleek appeal of Samsung’s notable Galaxy S6 is sure to make it popular among even to consumers outside the demographic.

    Could there be more limited edition Marvel-Samsung phone collaborations in the future? If this phone takes to the public as its creators predict, there is no telling what characters will come next. But while this one lasts, the popularity of the Galaxy S6 Edge phone is sure to increase along with its value. Story Leather, fortunately, offers a variety of genuine leather cases available for purchase on our site:

    Each leather case is custom made for the Galaxy S6 Edge model, in a plethora of colors to best suit your expression and many styles to most comfortably fit your needs.

    At Story Leather, we hold strong and true that each of us has a story to tell. We each have within us a book; however, for some it is never opened. We want to know who you are and be one of the reasons yours is told. A customized case, albeit simple, is at least one way. and perhaps the beginning, of you opening your book.

  • A small insight into Google's Annual Developer Conference

    Posted on May 29, 2015 by Andrew Franco

    “Your smartphone ought to be smarter,” Aparna Chennapragada begins. “Why can’t it tell you where you parked your car, why can’t it remind you to pick up the milk your spouse texted you about?”

    Image courtesy of

    Since it’s introduction, Google has helped assist us in ways more than one. It’s given us many, if not all, answers at our fingertips. If ever you wanted to know where the closest place to eat was, within seconds your answer would be granted. If ever you needed a reminder about where you parked your car, (and if you’re like me, you do), Google was there with a simple drop of a pin on your location. What those examples share, however, is the fact that the user had to manually click and close apps to view another. Say, for instance, you were listening to Pandora, or text messaging a friend, and your friend asked, “Hey, do you want to see the movie, Tomorrowland? Can you check local times?” You would have to exit the text message and click on a separate app or perform a separate search for the movie if you wanted to look up its times.

    The implementation of Google Now’s Now On Tap , however, completely changes that.

    Using three key elements to further assist its user, Now On Tap interprets your context, answers your questions, and takes action-- all through the development of a natural language understanding. Google understands over 100 million places, and that refers not only to their layouts and geometry but the places within them. Once it understands the context specific to each person, such as the places you commonly go and at what time, it can then work to effectively bring you the answers you need through Google’s knowledge graph.

    During its annual I/O, Google introduced the new Android M feature, which allows you to get information without having to switch context. Instead, it picks up on the context. In reference to the above example, the user does not have to exit the text message conversation and perform a separate search. With Google On Tap, the user can hold down the home button, and the phone will automatically conduct a search and supply the user with the necessary information without leaving the current window or app.

    “The key,” Aparna, the Director of Google Now, says, “is understanding the context of the moment...and for developers, it’s a new way to reach and re-engage with users.” More details will be shared in the next upcoming months.

    How do you feel about Google’s Now On Tap? Is it a feature that you see as being a great addition to the android?

  • What’s in your Wallet?

    Posted on May 28, 2015 by Staci Wilson

    custom wallet

    What’s in your wallet? is the question that anyone who’s seen the famous credit card commercials and ads knows well. But what is the actual answer? We looked around online, and here are some interesting answers we found.

    The number one things men carry in their wallets, despite the plastic propaganda, is good old, cold hard cash. That’s right: guys like the green. Most men have at least $30 on them at all times.

    The second-most popular item is a photo I.D. Usually it’s a driver’s license, but those who don’t get behind the wheel still carry school, State or work identification.

    Third – finally! – is a credit card, followed closely by a bank debit card.

    Lastly, fellas favor that little lump of leather to keep safe business cards, grocery and drug store discount cards, loose change, and the occasional stick of gum. Check out our short/compact wallets here.
