As for practical use - this case is awesome - whether I'm shooting landscape or portrait, to get some really natural photos of family without them realizing their photo is being taken. All people react differently the moment a lens is in front of them - the COVR case eliminates that awkwardness.
Congratulations to amateur photographer Michal Koralewski who won 1st place in the 2014 Time Magazine iPhone Photography Awards using a COVR Photo lens case.

We have been amazed at the response from people all over the world who are excited about the COVR Photo Lens Case for iPhone. The press coverage has been overwhelming: WIRED Magazine, CNET, Geekwire, the Los Angeles Times, Cult of Mac, and more! The other day we were excited to see that Italian tech site Diggita.it posted a link to a review. We receive orders for COVR cases from all over the world, so we are very pleased that one of the biggest Italian tech sites picked us up. You can read the article here. If your Italian translation skills are limited to what’s on the Olive Garden menu, here’s what our new friends at Diggita.it had to say: COVR arrives, the angled lens for iPhone Photographing people with an iPhone has become an art form, and one of the requirements for a good portrait is that the subject seems natural. The problem is that, when people know they are being photographed, they immediately stop doing what they’re doing and they pose for the picture, ruining everything. Now, thanks to Thomas Hurst, photojournalist and lover of street photography, we have COVR. It is a particular cover for iPhone with a built-in lens.

Last week I shared the exciting news that we were able to ship a limited number of COVR Photo cases. This week I get to share that we are anxiously awaiting the next, and much larger production run of both prisms and cases. The larger run of prisms began yesterday and while the larger production run of cases isn’t moving as quickly, it shouldn’t be that much farther behind. These next runs will allow us to assemble, package and ship 500 COVR Photo cases to our first supporters and customers. I know everyone is anxious for their case and I am grateful that all of you have been so gracious and understanding throughout the process and delays. Once the first run of 500 has been produced we will keep rolling out cases and shipping them as quickly as possible. This has been an incredible journey from the moment we hit the “launch” button on Kickstarter and we are very close to reaching the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel. Thank you so much for walking with us through all the ups and downs. As always, please let us know if you have any further questions.
