When discussing wallets with a friend of mine he sheepishly told me of his secret love for iPhone case wallets. His love had begun when he was given, what he described to me as a "granddad style" fake leather phone case which included a couple of slots for cards. He had fallen in love with the idea of carrying his wallet and phone in one package but was clearly not thrilled with the wallets stylistic feel.
The PUSH case may well prove to be his perfect match. PUSH is a smartphone case with a small drawer that pops out when a button located on the back of the case is pushed. Once closed, the device is designed to lock tight, preventing cards from falling out in the event that the phone is dropped.
The wallet part of this smartphone case can certainly be classed as a Slim Wallet as it is only designed to snuggly fit 3 cards or alternatively 2 cards and cash.
Of course, iPhone wallets are nothing new, but the reason PUSH is better, at least according to its creators, is that there are no pockets to stretch out, and it's not displaying your cards and money in the open, so it keeps things a little more secure.
Whilst combining your wallet and smartphone means that if lost you loose both wallet and phone, the GPS tracking function of your phone will make it easier to find it again, not many wallets boast this feature.
As of this writing, PUSH is only going to be available for iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, and iPhone 5S unless a push goal of $45,000 is reached, so if you are an Android user then what are you waiting for.
