Flip-Clip by Tactilis

>> Read Review (Rating 4/5) <<

The Flip-Clip by Tactilis (a Latin word meaning able to be touched) is one of those accessories that's so simple in design you'll probably wonder "why didn't I think of that?".

It allows the use of a Palm III-style flip cover on your trusty handheld.

Good product but needs better materials
Even though I'm a heavy user I consider myself to be very careful (Prisms aren't cheap!). No matter how careful you handle them these covers crack after a while, making them eventually unuseable. The saving grace is that they (1) are comparatively inexpensive), (2) do work well and (3) will last for some time when used with the standard leather slipcase. Realizing that profit is the ultimate motive here, I still believe that both the company and the consumer would be better off if a slightly tougher (and yes, more costly, but I'd pay a little more for a better product!) and more flexible material were used. MESSAGE TO PEOPLE AT TACTILIS: IT'S A BIG WORLD OUT THERE, FULL OF BETTER MATERIALS THAN WHAT YOU'RE CURRENTLY USING- GO TRY SOME OF THEM!

Works great! especially for the price!
I have had the flip clip for about 6 months now and it is still in mint condition. it works great. while you cant go around slamming the clip in a car door and being like OH IT BROKE!! It does fall off every once in a while, when you open it very fast and aggressively, but you just have to be gentle with it and nothing will go wrong. another plus is the cover part works with the palm III series. which is pretty cool. The only problem I had was I missed the ups guy on delivery and when I tried to contact tactilis I got no response, in order to contact them you have to call the shipping and receiving department, which took me about a month to get the number. so all in all the customer service sucks but the flip clip works great.

Didn't ship but they charged my card
I earlier wrote that Tactilis never shipped my Flip-Clip but they didn't process the charge on my credit card. They have since processed the charge but they still haven't shipped the Flip-Clip. I called them and emailed them but never got a reply. My Mastercard provider wouldn't dispute the charge because it was too small, but they refunded my money out of their pocket, so kudos to the GM Mastercard.

The company doesn't ship
I order a Flip-Clip several months ago but never received it. They didn't charge my credit card so I can't complain too much, but they seem to be out of business.

Works Great and keeps my screen safe
I have had the covor for about 3 months. It works perfect. the only thing that ever happens is if you hyperextend the cover, it will fall off, in which case you put it back on. I know this is a problem for some people, but come on dont be lame, it is like all together 10.00 dollars after shipping or something like that. You are getting a excellent product for the very low price. I love it and i have never had any problems with it. also if you own a palm 3, the covor fits it also. I give it a 9 out of 10. If you are kind of broke like me, get it. P.S. it also looks cool.

No, don't get this
The Flip cover did not work with the Prism. The ice-blue cover is a POOR copy of the Palm IIIc and cracked. Tactilis will not give me a refund. They said that they have a Flip-Cover for the Platinum/Visor but that has not happened yet. The flip-Clip works well on both the Prism and Platinum.

Cheap Looking, Poor Quality
I purchased the Flip Clip for quick and easy screen protection. Great price point for anyone. But, as the saying goes, "You get what you pay for." What I got, a Cheap, flimsy, poor fitting, piece of plastic to rub the paint off of my Visor Prism. When installed, it doesn't fit flush with the Visor. I think the lease they could have done was make a cover FOR the Handspring Visor line, not just sell Palm III covers in Visor Colors. I think this product is a waste of my money!

Chips paint off my platinum!
While the reviewer is correct (cheap, unobtrusive, good screen protector, attractive)the blasted thing does not fit FLUSH with the visor. The flip lid is also quite flexible. For this reason, when the unit is put in a slim case or pocket, the tip of the lid presses against the unit and over only a two week period, has chipped some of the paint off my platinum. Save your money for a good quality leather case.

wrong color
I ordered the flip-clip/lid combo for my Prism. I got a lid that looks like it would match the blue Visor Delux perfectly. Also, the clip keeps slipping up and down. I have e-mailed Tactilis twice, but they havn't responded. I think this is a good idea but the color clashes and the design is flawed.

Removes paint
Don't use this on your Prism unless you mind the paint being scraped off...
