Stocking?! Yes, you read that right. While Christmas may still be a few months away, we’re already working with editors who are excited to tell their readers about the idox Traveler Series case this upcoming holiday season!
The idox Traveler cases may great gifts – and are the perfect size for a stocking. Check out some of the great coverage from last Christmas!
Love the iPhone and iPod Touch but scared that you’ll drop and crack the screen? Us, too. We protect ours with Idox 360. It works as a to-go case and the perfect flying companion.
The idox hard case is as brilliant as it is simplistic. When closed, it is a really sturdy hard case for your device, and when you open it, it turns into an angled viewing base. This is of course perfect for watching a movie, or using your iPhone as an alarm clock. It provides the kind of protection you need for your iPhone or iPod touch when you pop it in your bag.
PCMag.com also included the idox Traveler Series in its article, “Last Minute Tech Stocking Stuffers” but you don’t have to wait – you can get yours now! Doesn’t it feel good to plan ahead?

We love our iPods too, but this editor REALLY loves his iPod Touch – to the point where he claims he would propose marriage if he could!
It’s a good thing he found the idox Traveler Series case. We don’t want to see how depressed he would be if anything bad ever happened to his Touch!
Check out what Michael at The Cleveland Scene as to say about the idox:
I love my iPod Touch. If I were allowed to marry it, I would. Seriously. But I hate looking at videos on it since my hand cramps after holding it a few minutes. This cool new gadget keeps your Touch, Nano or iPhone upright and stationary so you can watch Lord of the Rings without feeling like you spent three hours in hand-to-hand combat with Dark Lord Sauron.
If you love your iPod or iPhone as much as him – better get an idox Traveler Series case ASAP!

You know the phrase, “Mother always said…”? Well, in this case, mother is saying that the idox Traveler Series case rocks! We have had a lot of “mommy-bloggers” try out the idox and let us know how handy it is – entertain kids on the go, catch up on your favorite TV shows and protect your device when you toss it in your purse!
Here are just a few things these real-life moms had to say about idox on their sites:
Susan Heim on Parenting:
How often have you used your iPod or iPhone to entertain the kids? Most of us have. And if you’re planning to do some travel this summer, you’re even more likely to make use of these devices to stave off boredom. A company called idox now makes it easier to travel with your 4th and 5th generation iPod Nano, the iPod Touch, and the iPhone 3G and 3GS thanks to their Traveler cases!
These cases are really unique because not only do they protect your device, but they also enable you to keep it stationary and upright, so you can more easily enjoy games, apps, videos and more while you’re on-the-go. Your iPhone can become a bedside travel clock when you’re sleeping away from home!
We received an idox Traveler case for my husband’s iPhone, and it was extremely easy to use. The phone just popped into place, and it was a breeze to set up. All of the buttons on the phone were still reachable for easy access to all of the apps.

MomCentral – The DeBroff DeBrief:
Before recently, it has been a pain to care for my iPhone while using it for entertainment and work during travel. Fortunately, I have been given a great opportunity to try the idox, a new case and stand made to protect your iPhone or iPod while traveling….
This proves something every mom could bring into play as children become restless on long rides. As much as you want to make use of your iPhone or iPod to amuse your child, it’s nerve-racking to trust them to not damage such an expensive device. The idox can provide you a little less madness and a lot more protection.
While staying at a hotel, I used the idox to turn my phone into an alarm clock. When I woke up in the middle of the night, instead of searching for my phone on the nightstand and holding it up in front of me, I merely turned and tapped my phone that was already standing on the idox. What’s perfect about the idox is that it is what it is. There is nothing complicated about its functions; you simply clip in your phone, snap it shut, or rotate it to become a stand and you are literally set for takeoff.

It will keep your device out of the mess, and display all of the instructions you need before saying “іBon Appétit!”
Here are a couple of examples of bloggers who tried the idox in their own kitchens, and loved it!
Cooking in Heels:
This writer asks, “Who needs tomato juice on their smartphone?” and we agree! Read the full Cooking in Heels article here!
This food blogger, and mother of three, found the idox incredibly convenient in the kitchen, saying:
“I think being able to look up recipes right on my phone is so convenient, no more having to print them out and then keep track of a pile of loose papers. The other thing I like about the idox is that it’s designed and manufactured in Wisconsin. Made in the USA is always a plus with me! “

You may already know, but the idox Traveler Series cases are great items to have on your check list when packing for a trip. Travel editors agree that it’s a must-have when on the go – check out some of the great coverage we’ve seen from Gadling, and the San Jose Mercury News!

From San Jose Mercury News:
The idox’s solid construction offers great protection for your device while it’s being transported in a briefcase or purse. Its rubber stoppers — in the stand mode — prevent slippage on the in-flight tray table, and videos are displayed at the ideal viewing angle. The ports at the top and bottom of your device remain accessible through thin slots in the case. The idox comes in three color choices: black, pink and platinum. (Full article here)
If you’re currently prepping for some fun summer travel, don’t forget your idox Traveler Series case!

idox, LLC, distributes the idox Traveler Series internationally through our headquarters here in Madison, Wisconsin. The Travelers Series, a hard case and stand, is specially designed for using your iPod or iPhone while traveling.
Here’s how we got started:
idox founder Vic Mohoney, like any dad, grew tired of his kids dropping and breaking their iPods. With each new iPod purchase, he grew more and more frustrated as he stared at the retail wall of iPod cases. The cases did not protect the iPod or the iPod’s glass screen from breaking when dropped.
Then Vic noticed something else. While traveling on a long distance flight overseas, he grew tired of holding his iPhone while watching a movie. Looking around he noticed other travelers were also awkwarldy holding their iPhones and iPods while watch videos or listening to music.
He started to sketch an iPod case design on an airline napkin– a case that would both protect the iPhone and iPod for his kids and provide a stand to watch videos during flights.
From that napkin sketch, the idox Traveler Series was born.
Vic continued to design more and more case solutions. He started prototypes in his workshop—the first idox Traveler prototype was actually made of wood. As he refined his designs, he developed a portfolio of designs in plastic prototypes. Then, in the summer of 2009, the idox Traveler Series became a reality.
The patented idox Traveler Series, made of ABS grade plastic, has been on the market for a year now and has seen plenty of media coverage. From the cover of Skymall Magazine to a feature in Macworld—editors, reviewers and customers like what they see. You may have caught us in a few inflight publications, like Hemispheres and myMidwest.

You, too, can become part of the idox crew. Head over to the idox store to buy your own idox Traveler Series case before your next flight. Currently the idox Traveler Series is available in platinum, black and pink for the iPhone 3G and 3GS, iPod touch (2nd or 3rd generation) or iPod nano (4th or 5th generation).
