Gadget two - This inexpensive device is like a pair of sunglasses for your iPhone. With the bright summer sun shining for the exact few months, (mostly during the daylight hours) this is the ideal time to learn about the new myFlipShade from the folks at myCharge. The myFlipShade is an iPhone screen shield, privacy protector, and stand all-in-one. The shade reduces the sun's glare on your iPhone, making the myFlipShade ideal for use in the sunshine, to increase the visibility of your iPhone screen. Not only does the myFlipShade work as a screen shield, but it also works as a privacy screen and is ideal for crowded spaces such as public transport. Turn the accessory into a vertical or horizontal phone stand by folding it flat and adjusting for use. For now there is only an iPhone version. You could use it on an Android phone, but it will most likely cover your camera lens, which is not a good thing! Comes in black dot, marble white and and colorful pineapple. $9.99.

Compatibility: iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus
