iPhone/Mini stand (updated)

Frameshift stand for iPad Mini and phones. Not cheap, but I have to admit it looks really nice.

And... on the top picture, doesn't it look like some sort of big piece of workout equipment or summin?    :-)



The site is not very helpful with info, like what does it weigh, and how do you change the angle? (Surely not with tools, as it looks like?)

Update:

We updated the descriptions of the FrameShift Mini and FrameShift based on your comments.

... They added info about the weight (70 grams only for the Mini), and how to change the angle: "...using only your hands, no tools required. The friction hinge ensures it will stay at the angle you set until you change it and won't come loose over time." Thanks, Richard.

(This is what I love about small companies, they can be responsive. Big companies, I guess, can't allow to delegate enough responsibility to let people speak for the company, and the execs don't have the time.)


I'm tempted to get one, but then I really like my Griffin xPo.

They also have a full-iPad stand, which looks more like something from a science fiction movie, despite its simple function of just propping up an iPad.     :-)

FUNNY; I thought SAME! LOL! :-D

...how do you change the angle?

You probably just pull it apart or push it together...much like a folding chair. The site sez "...The adjustable support lets you view your iPad Mini or iPhone 5 at any angle and folds for traveling." and..."Infinite viewing angle adjustment" so...

I like it; reminds me of a beach/lounging chair, as well! :-D

TG got it - all you need is your hands. Tom Moccia at buymeaniphone did a nice video review if you want to see a recorded demo.

Thanks, Richard.

The updates are very good, clear language. And it's good to know the weight.

BTW, the two little plates in the middle of the Frameshift, what are they for? Just to hold the screws and look kewl?

Oh, also, while I got you: Why is it so tightly designed that it becomes a tight fit when there are protection sheets on the iPad (as seen in the video). It seems to me it should be safe even if you made the bottom rest deep enough to fit an iPad in a reasonable case. (Seems any jolt strong enough to knock the iPad out would just as well knock over the stand.) I'm just curious, sorry.

Richard,
Do you have plans of sales in the UK/Eu? It's pretty costly to import individually and pay import tax.
