Comfortable alternative to holding your iPod Touch
Jun 2, 2010
The DLO Game Case Boost for the iPod Touch is made of a silicone rubber that feels soft and allows you to have a firm grip on your iPod Touch. Great for playing games, especially for long trips. The ergonomic design uses less stress on your knuckles since your hands are more relax and not clutching the iPod. I actually like the idea that it uses AA batteries since sometimes I am not always in a location where I have access to a wall outlet to charge it. This is more of a convenient alternative to giving the iPod Touch a boost of power for those such occasions.
To install your iPod Touch you just have to roll back the silicone rubber casing and place your iPod inside and roll the rubber back over the edges. It takes some nudging and stretching to get it back in place, but it does fit snugly.
The video stand makes it great to place on a surface to watch movies, listen to your tunes or watch music videos. This comes in handy when I am at work.
The only negative thing I can comment on is the headphone output opening on the case. Since it is thick on the sides you can only use a headphone jack that is straight and not bent at a 90 degree angle. I have the Lady Gaga Heartbeats In-Ear Headphones and they will not fit in this case because of the angled jack which makes it to short to make a good contact and stay in place.
Other than that, I would highly recommend this to any avid iPod user who wants relief from iPod-Touch-Carpal-Tunnel-Syndrome. :-)

I received the DLO GameCase and immediately tried it out. It really gives you a much more comfortable grip when playing landscape view games. It also makes it much easier for my kids to play games with their smaller hands. Upon using the supplied batteries we did not seem to get any added life to the ITouch. We ran it down completely and then installed new batteries and there was a noticeable difference in game time. Maybe the batteries that came with the case were dead? &nbs … more
I have very mixed feelings about this case. My one major problem is that it runs on two AA batteries instead of recharging. I use my IPod Touch a lot and I would probably go through a set of batteries once every day. I just don't see any point in spending about a buck a day for disposable batteries when there are so many other similar style cases that you can recharge for only a couple penny's a day. The only advantage that I can think of is if you are on the road and unable to recharge it then … more
When I first got my iPod Touch the very first thing I did was download some games for the kids. Most of these games were simple "point and click" affairs and the iPod Touch seems to be designed really well for this. My husband, however, added a few titles of his own. Namely some first-person shooters after hearing how great the graphics could be on the Touch. The graphics did look great! There was only one problem, the games were basically unplayable due to the slimness of … more
