If you watch movies on your smartphone-and with the increasing
size of screens on devices, we’re seeing more and more people doing so - you will
have no doubt encountered the problem of how exactly to hold the device: to shuffle
it between two hands to ward off arm-ache, or to create a makeshift prop on the table
in front of you. iFoldAway offers what may be the perfect solution. Its a portable
viewing stand that cradles your phone at a 45-degree angle. Made of plastic, it feels
incredibly flimsy but is unexpectedly sturdy. It is solid enough to withstand motion
as you travel, or the occasional tug of the earphone cable, and can be folded and
stored in a wallet where it’ll need hardly any more space than a credit card.
Despite the name, iFoldAway is compatible with more than just iPhones, as any large-screened
device will rest in it. It won’t hold them in an upright position, however so cannot
be used as a desktop cradle for charging and syncing.
There’s not much to dislike about the iFoldAway. It’s a simple idea well implemented.
At £2.99 per piece it is maybe a little expensive - we’d expect a pack of three for
that price - but if it helps you to while away a lengthy commute then it will more
than serve its purpose.

I'm a sucker for a good iPhone stand, especially when it's cheap, practical,
and available in lots of purty colors.
That's the iFoldAway in a nutshell. It's cheap
(about $8.90 shipped from the U.K.), practical (it weighs almost nothing and folds
up flat as a credit card), and available in your choice of eight colors: pink, red,
white, yellow, black, etc.
The stand is made of Priplak Polypropylene, one of those space-age polymer plastics
you hear about. According to the developer, burning it produces nothing more than
water vapor. (I'll have to take him at his word; I wasn't about to set my iFoldAway
By the way, it works not just with iPhones, but also iPod Touches, Android phones,
and just about anything else that's the same size and shape. And it can accommodate
most cases, as long as they're not too thick.
The stand holds your device at roughly a 45-degree angle, which is just about perfect
for watching movies (or just using your iPhone as a desktop photo-frame). I particularly
like the fact that I can keep it in my wallet, so it's with me nearly everywhere
Simple, sturdy, and collapsible, the iFoldAway stand is good for all kinds of phones
and media players.

Yet another accessory that really doesn’t require much of a review. What
can you say about a foldable plastic stand for your smartphone?
It’s the sort of thing that you might have already thought about making yourself,
but why bother cutting out bits of cardboard when £2.99 will get you a simple, durable
and easily built stand for your smartphone. The manufacturer claims the stand, made
from Priplak Polypropylene will likely last longer than the phone used on it. It’s
also 100% recyclable and biodegradable.
Slip your phone on the stand and it will be tilted back at 45 degrees, making it
easy to enjoy movies or picture slideshows. In many cases you may be able to keep
the device on charge, or connect headphones, depending on where the ports are. We
had no problems with connecting headphones on a Motorola Milestone, but charging
was be impossible due to the socket position.
What we couldn’t work out was why the website talks up this accessory as being available
for the iPhone, iPod and Google’s Nexus One, as if they’re the only things it can
fit. The reality is that it should be usable on just about any smartphone – as long
as the thickness isn’t much more than 10-15mm and the phone is at least 100-110mm
wide, so it can sit comfortably over the stand without slipping off.
We put that to the test and can confirm that it worked just fine with the HTC Desire,
Samsung Galaxy S and the Acer Stream. It even supported the far narrower, and thicker,
Sony Ericsson X10 mini pro, but only just. The Nokia X6 also fitted, and – of course
– it works just fine with any iPhone model (including the iPhone 4) and the new iPod
The iFoldAway comes in a number of different colours, all at the same price, but
you do have to pay delivery of 99p for up to three items. It’s a shame that you can’t
buy these stands from high street shops, although the manufacturer claims that they
will in the near future.
