I love my iPhone. Mike says I treat it like a piece of gold. (and considering how much work I do on it, I feel like it is worth its weight in gold) Even though I did not even carry it out of the store before getting an Otter Box, I have still been cautious about really using it to its full potential (hheeellooo a jillion cool ‘get out and go' apps!), for fear I would drop it and break it. It has its own pocket in my purse, and if it isnt there, its on my desk. That's about it. So when I discovered The Zhip, it was truly love at first sight.
The Zhip is made of a polycarbonate material, with gripping pads on the inside to gently (but firmly) hold your smart phone or other little electronic device. I have used other “tripod” type products in an attempt to find one that makes video easy on the go, but they were never very sturdy. The Zhip is tough and I feel much more secure with my “gold” sitting in it.
The Zhip was smaller than I thought it was going to be (it measures 27/8” x 13/8” x 3/4“), but it expands out to fit any hand held mobile device. It is also very light weight, which I love, since my purse already weighs 20 pounds with my camera and iPad in it.
Other ideas for how to use The Zhip:
For Moms On-the-Go: The Zhip quickly mounts to the back of a car seat to entertain the kids with movies, shows, music videos, and games while on the road;At the Gym: Use the Zhip on exercise equipment at home or at the gym to make workouts more enjoyable while keeping your handheld device safe and secure;For Frequent Travelers: Hangs on the tray table hook right at eye level to deliver your favorite entertainment selections on long flights;Any Member of the Family: In the dorm room, in the kitchen, on the stroller… and it's also the perfect desktop stand.
I absolutely LOVE this little thing, and I am super excited to see that they will be coming out with a Zhip for the iPad in the future, as well as a little suction thing that will attach your phone to the windshield. (I have been saying I wanted someone to invent that for years!) The Zhip is the perfect stocking stuffer for anyone in your life who likes to take their mobile device “on the go!”
