We're delighted to see SwimCell and Owner Amy Day feature in some local Cornish newspapers this week. The Article is as follows:
A Penzance-bred entrepreneur has just received the sort of recommendation for her product that any business would dream of having.
Former Humphry Davy and Penwith College student Amy Day launched her waterproof bag for phones – SwimCell – just six months ago.
And now she has received a message on her Facebook page from a delighted holidaymaker from London who said she was the “luckiest girl alive” after losing her phone in the waves at Polzeath in north Cornwall.
Nicola's message read: “As the waves were quite small this morning we went out paddling on our boards and I took my phone in a waterproof case to take photos.
“I paddled around searching for ages but it was impossible to see anything.”
Four hours later however the phone – undamaged and photos intact – was found by a couple of girls who were rock-pooling.
“I have always been sceptical of gadgets but I can definitely say that yours is brilliant and I have also bought myself one.”
Amy told The Cornishman she had the idea of the SwimCell bag while taking time out after going through a tough time personally.
“I went to a small island in Indonesia to get away from everyone asking what I was going to do with my life,” she said.
“I went to lie on the beach and it was there that I thought wouldn’t it be cool if you can take photos on your phone in the water instead of having to buy a waterproof camera.
“Nicola’s story made me very proud to see my product being used in Cornwall by someone on holiday and have such a story.
“I’d like to add that attaching a float to the SwimCell is a good idea if you’re out in deep water.”
SwimCells are available for sale in Annes Cottage shops and watersports warehouse, and online from www.swimcell.com and amazon.co.uk

If you've just got yourself a sparkly new iphone 6 you can easily fit it into a SwimCell waterproof case for iphone.
The iphone 6 plus unfortunately doesn't fit in our standard SwimCell, but watch this space and we'll do our best to bring you one as soon as we can.
Did you know you can still use your phone whilst it's inside SwimCell and you can even take photos underwater by changing your settings to use the buttons on the side of your phone instead of the touch screen.

Seeing as SwimCell is 100% Waterproof we thought we'd put it through it's paces and take it for a walk on the bottom of the ocean! A 5m deep Gili Marine Walk let's you walk along the bottom of the ocean (which is currently all dead coral) to have a look at some of the fabulous tropical fish.
Our phones stayed completely dry in the waterproof bag for phone for the entire time that we were underwater, about 40 mins.
Before taking your phone underwater it's probably a good idea to check with your phones manufacturer that it's safe to take it that deep. The deeper underwater you go, the more pressure is put on your phone!
Needless to say we had a lot of fun on the Marine Walk and with the photos afterwards! (Thanks Shed Simove aka Ideas Man)

Travel insurance sucks because most of the time it won't cover your mobile phone!
Your phone is more likely to get lost or damaged on holiday than any other item so what good is it if you can't get some help from your insurance company? If you're lucky they might give you £150, but that's only if you bought your phone within the last 12 months and have the receipt to prove it.
This is one reason why SwimCell 100% Waterproof Bag For Phone is an essential item to take with you when you go away. The last thing you want is to be forking out an extra £700 for a new phone because of a silly accident.
If you've got this far, you know what you need to do. Choose your colour and SAVE YOU PHONE!

We're thrilled to have been featured in Marianne Cantwell's Friday Love Letter to her Free Range Humans today.
Talking about just doing rather that waiting for things to be perfect. Having been months without making videos Marianne made her first one with a SwimCell in the water to show us one of her favourite places in the world.
You can check out her video here http://vimeo.com/94502470
