Pressy has Finally Arrived, We Go Hands-on With It

Pressy, the Kickstarter funded project that brought instant actions to your phone via headphone jack button, is finally arriving to backers after months of delays. The idea at introduction sounded interesting, so we went ahead and grabbed a couple, not knowing that Xiaomi and others would copy it and sell it cheaper before Pressy could get theirs off the manufacturing floor. But in the end, it is here and we want to take it for a spin. Well, we at least want to show those of you who backed it that it is real, is shipping, and actually works.  (more…)

Pressy is Actually Shipping, App Hits Google Play

Everyone remember Pressy? That would be the Kickstarter funded button that plugs in to your phone via headphone jack, so that it can then be used to trigger actions on your phone. It is yet another Kickstarter project that sounded amazing at inception, but its creators have struggled with the manufacturing portion.

There have been delays if you think about the original ship date which was slated for March. Companies like Xiaomi thought the idea was awesome, so they copied Pressy to a T and have already released their version which costs a fraction of Pressy’s $17-20 price tag. There are other knock-offs of the project filling eBay by the day, leaving Pressy fans a little more than frustrated. It’s a mess.  (more…)

Pressy is a Fully-Funded Kickstarter Project That Adds Functionality to Your Headphone Jack

Pressy

Pressy, a project on Kickstarter that already reached its $40,000 goal, has the Internet going crazy. The device/accessory is a pretty great idea, though. Pressy fits right into your phone’s audio jack, which then allows you to perform tasks with a few simple taps on its button. What’s even sweeter is that when you have your headphones plugged in, and not Pressy, you can use your headphone’s button (if they have one) to perform the tasks. I suggest watching the video, because explaining it better than they have would be impossible.  (more…)
