One of the biggest complaints we hear from former Android users who have switched to the iPhone is its lack of a dedicated back button. The iOS ‘back’ button is embedded within each app, usually parked in the top left corner. As the size of the iPhone keeps increasing, people with smaller hands are being forced to use two hands to navigate the phone. Instead of adding a back button like most Android devices, Apple added the double-tap screen lower function. This helps our smaller-handed friends, but we’ve yet to see one person use this feature in the real world.
Currently running on Kickstarter, the Team at Halo Back are looking to launch the world’s first smart screen protector for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. As if made with magic, the Halo Back adds a circuit layer to a high-grade tempered glass screen protector using a nano coating. It takes the electric current generated from your finger and shoots it into the top left corner of the screen acting as a back button. Seriously, magic. It installs quickly and protects your phone from scratches, fingerprints, drops within reason, and it’s ultra-clear so you won’t lose any clarity from the native screen.
At only 0.21mm thick, it should work with most iPhone 6 cases. As of today (5/25/15), it looks like you can get one for $17 on the early bird special. They’ve already smashed their $20,000 goal with over $92,000 backed. More at Halo Back.
