Smartphones are portable as hell, and that’s only gotten better over time as phones have grown slimmer and more convenient. Despite that, there are still a lot of accessories and tools that haven’t quite honored the portability of mobile. Take phone mounts, for example, most of which are designed to be secured in one place — like a vehicle dashboard. That doesn’t help when you need a mount or holder in a pinch like, say, at the gym or while you’re cooking.
Instead, most of us end up propping up our phone or tablet using nearby items, which doesn’t always work too well and it’s not exactly secure, either. What if there was a better option?
Pocketmount is a super portable, modular and all-in-one smartphone mount that you can use anywhere, anytime.
What Is Pocketmount?
Pocketmount is a portable, modular, all-in-one smartphone holder.
Conceptually, Pocketmount is relatively straightforward. It’s a smartphone mount, designed from the ground-up to be both portable and modular. What does that mean exactly?
It means not only can you take and use it just about anywhere, but it’s also versatile so you can apply it in many ways. Just to provide some examples. You can clip the mount to a treadmill, exercise bike or elliptical to watch videos and content while you’re doing some cardio. You could also clip the mount to the edge of your child’s stroller, just out of reach, so they can watch videos and stay entertained. Or, you could attach the mount to the dashboard of your vehicle to use your phone as a hands-free device.
It’s meant to be taken anywhere, easily installed and provide ample support precisely when you need it. It also means no more propping your phone up on random items, against walls or surfaces or wherever you can make things work.
Pocketmount can even be secured to the underside of counters, surfaces and overhead structures so it hangs down like a portable screen. This is excellent for doing things like watching recipes and how-to videos while you’re completing various tasks.
What Else Can Pocketmount Do?
Mount your phone under cabinets, to car dashboards, bicycle handlebars, gym equipment, wheelchairs, strollers and much more!
Pocketmount can also transform into an elevated tabletop workstation, so you can essentially prop your phone up. That makes it ideal for video recording, watching videos, holding a conference or social call or even using it as a mini-monitor. It’s not just a mount that requires you to attach the phone to a surface, you can simply stand the phone up, too. When you consider just how challenging it is propping up or positioning your candy bar shaped phone as-is, the Pocketmount proves invaluable.
Pocketmount’s creators have invested time and resources to ensure the mount is durable, reliable and long-lasting. It’s not going to break or fall apart on you randomly while you’re using it. That’s important considering we’re talking about a tool that will be used to secure a $200 to $1,000 electronic device.
Where Can I Get One?
Mount and attach your phone anywhere, anytime to keep your hands free.
Initially, there was a live Kickstarter for Pocketmount where the goal was to help raise funding for the project. The first shipments were meant to go out in May 2020 which means the product should be ready for mass production. Unfortunately, the campaign was canceled by the creator and they will be seeking alternative funding. It’s difficult to estimate, but the Pocketmount will likely be available sometime soon. Hopefully, before the end of the year at the latest.
Let’s hope so because many of us could use a smartphone mount just like it!
