Best iPhone Holders for Recording (and Viewing) Lectures

The easiest way get a good recording of a lecture is to have a good stand for your iPhone. I have tried just about everything on the market and here are my picks:

1. Tiltpod – a really small useful discrete stand, I keep it with me as my keychain all the time. Whip it out place your iPhone and in a few seconds you are ready to record.


2. Bed iPhone Holder- There are lots of version of this type of holder (search for “bed iPhone holder”). Much less elegant than the Tiltpod but works really well in a crowded classroom or from the back of the class. You can find it on Amazon, and ebay.

3. Pocket Tripod –  This has got to be the coolest design ever! A folding credit card size holder that fits in your wallet. A little less versatile then the Tiltpod – but it fits in your wallet (and it is fun to just play with).

4. Keyprop – Really nice design, easy to carry – but less flexible than the ones above.


Bottom line – 1 and 1 are the best all around holders, 1 for just about everything, 2 if you need your iphone to tower above the crowd.


About Jacob Ukelson

blog (mostly) about my work and technology. So far I have been lucky enough to have been working on things I consider fun and with really top notch people. I have worked in both large companies (IBM) and small companies (ActionBase, ConicIT, Dapper, eXeedTechnologies). eXeed was establish to remedy a failure of the VC model in Israel – most VCs were monetary investors, but most companies needed not just money – they needed operational and business guidance. That is what we provide at eXeed – not just an investment but also our time and skills as seasoned software executives. I have taken on various titles – CTO, VP Products, VP BizDev – but throughout my career a constant focus has been on technologymarket fit, aka customer development. Unique breakthrough technology is a start, but the product must solve real business problems. It needs to be something customers can understand, relate to and will want to buy. I have been doing this for 20 years for software products in companies both large and small.
