Looking ahead to the holidays, the iBend ($5.99 for 2) would make a great little stocking stuffer for any iPhone addict. Part of the beauty of this stand is its simplicity. Upon opening the gift card like envelop one would find a bizarrely cut thin piece of plastic with one of numerous colorful designs. The iBend, being no thicker or weighing any more than a business card, can then be easily bent into a crafty self supporting iPhone stand. The plastic material used for an iBend makes it fairly durable by being both waterproof and highly tear resistant. Being so thin though does make it susceptible to folds and creases if you weren’t paying attention. While these should be avoided, after folding mine in several ways and angles I was still able to flatten it out to be functional. The thing I personally love most about this stand is that I don’t have to remember to bring it with me when I leave the house. It’s so thin that I’m able to store it in the back of my iPhone case where I can pull it out at a moments notice.
Pros: Thin, light, durable, and able to take it anywhere
Cons: Only works on flat surfaces, susceptible to creases
Verdict: At a price of $5.99 for 2 it’s a no brainer
