IF YOU DON’T ALREADY KNOW ICRACKED, THEN YOU BETTER KNOW NOW
You’ve done something dumb and now your smartphone’s screen is broken. Somehow. Somewhere. You don’t want to talk about it.
Or you do. I hear smartphone horror stories every day. “It just fell out of my pocket. I was so drunk, I don’t really remember.” Or “I was scrolling on Instagram and tripped up the stairs.” According to a study by Squaretrade, an estimated 15.5% of iPhone owners will have an accident within a year of buying their phone. As an iPhone user for six years I’ve never ever smashed, broken or drowned my phone. Until last night. It happened outside a bar in Mitte. Don’t ask me how. I don’t want to talk about it.
I googled cheap repair shops in Berlin. None were really cheap. Or nearby. Then I remembered iCracked. iCracked is an app that delivers screen repair services for your iOS or Android device right to your front door. With just a few taps on my shattered but still functioning screen and my phone was fixed by a young repairman in the comfort of my living room, the very next day. A broken screen can be annoying and momentarily very stressful. But thankfully, iCracked is a worldwide service.
