Default Flygrip?

I was watching a YouTube video the other day and it was a review on the Flygrip and it looked pretty cool. I was wondering if anyone has used a Flygrip before and if it was worth the $30

This could be useful for me. I'm starting to get a little RSI in my right thumb. This looks like it would support it.

I have had the flygrip for ~6 months. I really like it.
lt broke the other day. I emailed the Flygrip folks and they said it was due to a design flaw. They sent me a new one with the new revised design. Free of charge.
It is really useful. Helps to have a secure hold on your device. And also doubles as a landscape kickstand. Because the galaxy note is so big, the device will not stand in portrait with the kickstand. It just topples over.
It folds flat. Fairily flat. Only 7-8mm.

Mine just came in today I suggest if you get one use some duct tape (or another type of tape) to stick it in back. That way you can get a better feel for where you want it and don't waste one sticky.

Cause that's what I just did.

But other than that it's comfortable, quick to open, and once you stick your fingers in it a few times (heehee) it becomes very nice!

I don't use a case (even though they offer a free one for my phone) So it's nice to have a better hold on my phone.

I'm going to buy another one in a few months for my friends.

Hello, I noticed that you may want a kickstand that will help stand your Galaxy Note better. I have developed one that might be just the ticket for you - although not designed as a grip, with the blade open, it can be used to give yourself a better grip - see this link http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1208873

Take a short strip of packing tape and fold over one end so that you have something to grip if you want to take it off - it will have less adhesive goo on your device to clean off - that's what I did when I was first testing correct placement on my kickstand4u tm
Samsung Galaxy S3 (tweaked and rooted)
Samsung Epic 4G (retired rooted backup)
Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus
Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1
Apple iPad 3 (yes, I have one of those also)

For all mobile devices - get one!
XDA kickstand4u tm Review

Oh my! I rooted my SGS3!
Rock Solid and Perfect!

I have just started a Kickstarter Project - please help out if you can - will end August 31st

It's hard to hold in bed, I use my kickstand4u tm like a flygrip, but I find my arm gets tired holding my GS3 like that, which is pretty lightweight let alone trying to hold my Samsung Tab 7.0 Plus over my head for that long, I know I would still drop it on my face and with the weight of my arm attached, I'd probably knock myself out LOL!


You just got to either have a strong arm to hold in that position for a long time or set it on a bedside nightstand and do the reading that way.

So using a kickstand that was designed for all mobile devices as a true kickstand rather than a flygrip that can be used as a kickstand for small devices like a phone, this might help: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2087034

Thanks for the tip. I'll look into it.
