A Few Facts About Leather:

Leather has always been my favorite material: my jacket and sofa are made out of leather. I started wondering why I liked it so much and found out a few interesting facts about leather material:

Leather was used widely in the ancient world since its creation by the Egyptians in approximately 3,000 B.C.

The Roman Empire used leather sails on their ships as they sailed around the Mediterranean.

Leather is still superior to any man-made fabric for "abrasion protection" and is still widely used by motorcyclists and race car drivers.

These cases enable your iPhone to slide in and out of the pouch like a pair of glasses. The benefit of these cases is that they tend to have a sleeker design than the leather 'flip' cases that have an extra hinge built into them.

This is my favorite leather pouch iPhone case. It has a sleek executive look. If you didn't know any better you'd awesome it was an envelope, with a leather fastener.

Animal-Friendly Leather iPhone 5 Cases

There are many different types of synthetic leather, from pleather to vegetan (you can read all about the different types here). Without getting into all the different types, I decided to highlight unique synthetic leather cases on Amazon. You can usually find synthetic leather cases by searching for "PU" in front of the word "leather".

Note: The "Nero" Leather Pouch Case listed above is animal friendly, however the Neo leather 'flip' case is not.

This synthetic leather case can also fold to become a stand for typing or Facetime usage. The pink is just one of many colors available for this particular design.

 

Brown Leather iPhone 5 Cases

Brown leather has a timeless sophistication to it. That, and you may find yourself feeling a bit like Indiana Jones with these brown leather iPhone cases.

Personally I think the only thing more manly than a brown leather case is one made by a company called "Bear Motion". It's a folio case with a soft leather touch and cutouts for all your connection needs. That, and it looks damn good.

      So I reviewed the app in iTunes, and to quote: This is a bfeutiaul RSS reader and arguably produces the best rendering of cached articles since the late if not always lamented Printful. It's incredibly comprehensive and as a result perhaps a little intimidating at first use. For instance, while RssBook syncs seamlessly with Google Reader it's a bit disconcerting to be confronted with 5000-odd articles when your Google account is always up to date! This results in a fair amount of clutter at timesThere are also some noticeable short-comings. There's no obvious mark all as read button (you need to select unread only using the filter icon). Frustratingly the app doesn't remember filter setting I'm a bit OCD obessive and filter feeds by Label and then Feeds (so as to mirror my Google settings), but every time you relaunch, the UI resets to default. Finally, for an app that is so detailed, the inability to drill and pull the linked web page into cache if the RSS feed itself is truncated seems a bit of an omission?Still I'll give this 3/5 for the moment and given as the developer appears to have a list of updates up his sleeve, I'll similarly update this review To be fair only Byline really seems to have mastered the seamless caching of webpages behind RSS feeds it takes a little longer to sync as a result, but at 30 000 ft there generally isn't a lot of wi-fi around so it's my #1 choice for offline reading. The biggest issue for me is that the app doesn't remember filter settings hopefully the next update will fix this?
