Sometimes Ya Just Need A New One

Posted by terrepruitt on January 25, 2021

I broke down and bought a new phone/pad stand. I have one that I have had for years and still use it. It is simple and it folds “flat”. I love that. I didn’t use it that much so I had trouble opening it because I couldn’t remember how it opened, but I have been using it a lot these past 11 months, so opening was not the issue. Moving it was the issue. I have been using my phone to take some classes where the instructors have us going up and down and so I keep moving my phone. And it collapses very easily so every time I moved it, it would collapse. With an iPad or a laptop it doesn’t need to be moved that much because I can see it when it is up and I am down and vice-versa or whatever, but a phone is a bit small to see sometimes. Or when it is up on something but at the “wrong” angle for viewing from the floor. Now some of you may think a stand is silly, but I have talked to many people who have one or wished they did now that so much of what we do is online. There are SO many types of phone/pad/tablet holders out there. I am happy I got a new one.

This one is blue . . . of course. And it moves in multiple ways. It is sturdy AND stays at the angle I put it in. I just got it so hopefully it will stay this tight and not become loose and collapse. It folds “flat”. I am excited to use it later and not have to stop the playback so I can open the stand every time I move the phone so I can see.

Last April when we were told we were stuck at home for longer than they original said we started Zooming with some friends every week and her cat would knock her iPad around so I ordered her a pink stand that folds flat. The folding flat is a big deal to me because I feel it is easier to store and carry around if need be.

As I said there are all types of stands. I have another one that is fine when I am not moving it around, but this one will work great being moved quickly. It will not collapse and will sit nicely without a lot of futzing.  Sometimes ya just need a new one to have it work the way you need it to.

So . . . you? Do you have a stand to hold your device while you watch something or read a recipe while cooking?

UPDATE:  February 03, 2021

I have actually used this every single day since i have gotten it.  It is exactly what I needed.  As I mentioned the other one is fine, but when I pick it up it collapses and this one is sturdy so I can pick it up and quickly move it.  It is great!

  1. I mainly use my phone to take photos. However, if I drove a lot I thought it would be nice to have a place to hold the phone in the car.
