Add a Second Screen to Your Smartphone With castAway

 

Smartphone manufacturers have been launching “folding” devices with great fanfare, though, with high price tags and low demand, these units have not become market hits.

As an alternative, a smart start-up, castAway, has now announced a new device to add a second screen to your existing smartphone!

The castAway case enables you to open multiple apps at once, copy/paste, and access files and photos from either screen with ease.

The team responsible for creating the castAway screen smartphone case have added new perks for people to enjoy via Indiegogo, enabling backers to now order customizable mods that will be interchangeable with their castAway case, including a Qi wireless charging battery, a wallet w/ Qi wireless charging battery, and a Universal Case that will allow people to use all of castAways mods with ANY phone case they choose.

A quote from the company said, “We heard you loud and clear. After listening to your feedback, we’re excited to announce that we have expanded castAway into a full platform. We’re still delivering a second-screen experience — but now you can customize your case with a variety of accessories as well to meet the demands of your daily life. “

“A second monitor used to be a luxury, and now it’s a necessity. Juggling between apps and screens is how things go today. Adding a second screen to a PC is easy, but what about a second one for your smartphone? It’s not like you leave the need for multitasking behind when you are away from your desktop, out in the world doing things.”

The castAway case adds a second, ultra-slim screen to your existing iPhone or Android smartphone. The second screen is a powerful Chromium-based tablet that lets you multitask while on the go.”

Features of castAway include:

·      castAway case connects with any iOS or Android phone and continues to work even when detached from your smartphone.  

·      Features a dual boot option that lets you quickly turn it into a larger keyboard, trackpad, or game controller for your phone.  

·      It is fully-equipped with a hi-res capacitive touch screen, WiFi, Bluetooth, front and back-facing cameras, & audio jack.  

·      Integrated SD slot allows you to expand storage and offload photos from your phone  

·      The built-in battery can do double duty and be used to boost your smartphone.

When the tablet is detached from your smartphone, your phone will look and feel like it would in any other high-end protective case. The hinge design also simplifies the task of supporting the myriad of smartphones. The smartphone side of the case is a custom fit for each major model type. That said, there are many unique (lower volume) phones for which we are developing a universal case back that works with the hinge. The castAway case will be available in 3 model sizes. Currently, the castAway is priced at $249, with delivery promised in October 2020.
