One of those products that is just extremely well thought out and versatile. Super well built and stable in use. Best feature? It folds completely flat into something the size of a small pocket knife so it's very easy to keep this in your pocket all the time. Also the tripod legs easily unscrew and reveal a standard 1/4"-20 socket so you can use your phone on a regular tripod. Threaded directly into the bottom of a camera, the legs by themselves could easily support a P&S, mirrorless, or perhaps even a small, entry level size DSLR for tabletop use. The legs are centered around a built in ballhead with a surprising amount of stiffness so pointing a phone or small camera is a breeze. Need I say more? Just buy one already!!! The only drawback is I doubt it would open far enough to grip a large phone. But it easily accommodates an iPhone in a case.

Pros:
Nice grip on iphone. Good angle maneuverability. Works well with making still iphone videos by mounting it on hard flat surfaces.

Cons:
Legs might be too small for Vine creations. The legs give out if your touching the screen too much.

Overall: For the price it's worth it.

      Handy tool to have. Fits my Samsung S5 and great to take group shots, self portrait or night shots.
      The rubber tips on the tripod legs are coming off after a few use.

        I needed a way of taking portraits with out asking another person to hold my iphone. it fits in my pocket with ease and quick to set up. I even use it to ichat with loved ones so I do not have to hold it. It even has a key chain attachment which I have a clip for when i travel.

              I use the GripTight Micro Stand for time lapse and family photos. It does what it says and keeps my iphone 5 positioned exactly like I want it. Good buy! And you can use the top portion separately to mount on a tripod! Bonus!Its is a good buy, and good bye!

                    I really like the fact that this stand allows you to leave your protective case on your smartphone during use. Other products require the smartphone to be removed from the protective case which is a pain.
                    Also, this product works with several different brands & models of smartphone.

                        I use it for both photography and for viewing videos. In either scenario the tilt range is quite limited; less than 20 degrees. Build quality is alright, but a bit lower than I expected after seeing their video. The jaws are just tall enough to hold a Galaxy S4 in landscape orientation, so don't bother if your phone is any wider.

                              Convenient stand for multiple devices.
                              A great "adapter" to mount phone to "full-size" tripod. Doesn't obstruct view or interfere with controls.
                              Even my non-techie wife said she thinks it cool.
                              No doubt, this thing is going on my next trip.

                              Slight concern that the ball joint will lose it's effectiveness after many uses but time will tell.

                              Nice grip on iphone. Good angle maneuverability. Works well with making still iphone videos by mounting it on hard flat surfaces.

                              Cons:
                              Legs might be too small for Vine creations. The legs give out if your touching the screen too much.

                              Overall: For the price it's worth it.

                                It folds so small you wont even know your carrying it. Great if you have movies on your iPhone.

                                  I use this for both my iPhone and my compact SuperZoom. It works well for both, but when I rotate the legs out it tends to unscrew from the camera. I can live with it.

                                    This is unbelievable small but UNBELIEVABLE CUTE!!!!!
                                    Love it.
                                    It fits my IPod touch 5(with an Otterbox Defender case)perfectly.
                                    It's sturdy (mostly metal parts)
                                    It's in my pocket ALL THE TIME.
                                    GREAT TRIPOD.....

                                      Great for watching your downloads while working on any flat surface. Great for recording videos of yourself and/or others and for facetiming on my Ipod. Very secure grip and the tripod can be used separately if hiking. Much better deal to buy this combo than either separately.

                                        It is great to have a small tool which allows you to take great photo or videos with my iPhone. It is also great for FaceTime. I also take the unit apart and use the bracket on a small tripod to tilt over the 36 degree limit.
