Last week I attended the fabulous iCracked Launch Party at Shoreditch Studios.
iCracked the world’s largest and most efficient on-demand repair and trade-in network for iOS devices plus more! Think Uber but for your broken iPhone screen.
As it so happened, when I was invited to the launch party, my iPhone screen was indeed smashed (I’d been using it for about 2 months in this state) so it was a great opportunity to try out the service first hand. My first step was to signup online and fill all my details. After this, I received a confirmation email that one of the iTechs would get in touch with me.
I missed their first call, however they quickly texted me to find out more about my phone and after a few quick texts back and forth, I arranged for an iTech to come to my office (yes during working hours!) who assessed my broken phone and fixed the front and back screen within the hour.
This felt like a premium experience. I didn’t have to book an appointment with Apple and wait around at the Genius bar, or ask for a quote from a ‘dodgy’ shop on the high street. My phone was fixed in a matter of days, without any of my time wasted. Result!
London is their first city outside of the USA, and I spoke to co-founder, Anthony Martin to find out more about the service, his entrepreneurial journey and plans for world domination.
