Capta iPhone and Android Case Offers 3-in-1 Featureset
Capta started out as a Kickstarter project that combines three features into one useful accessory that works with any smartphone.
Capta serves as a stand for your smartphone, a tripod mount and a cable organizer. The case costs $34.95 and works with any smartphone that has a flat back thanks to the sticky pad.
If you stick the special pad to the back of your phone, then the company claims it will hold the phone securely. If you twist your phone it pops off without leaving any residue from the sticky pad. The sticky pad works with an iPhone in a case, naked or with other smart phones in our out of a case.
Capta serves as a stand so you can view video, do a FaceTime or Skype chat, or show off pictures. Lean your device against it or let it hold it up at a 90 degree angle.
Attach to the phone when in use or remove it and wrap your charging/syncing cable or headphones around it for easy cable management. The sticky pad holds the cables in place. Attach the Capta to your tripod so you can use it for taking steady pictures or video with your phone’s camera.
BiteMyApple is a distributor. The site is a kind of “as seen on TV” for Kickstarter projects. The site promises that the pad will hold your iPhone securely. Notice the picture above showing the iPad on a tripod leaning down to take a picture. The sticky pad is the only thing holding the phone on the tripod mount.
If the pad gets dirty, just run water over the pad and remove the dust or debris with your fingers. Let it air dry before you use it again.
I used a dash mount from Scosche that had a similar material and it worked really well except when it got dirty. Cleaning it refreshed the pad.
Get yours at ByteMyApple for only $34.95. They also offer the TiltPod I recently reviewed and the Cosmonaut stylus that Warner and I both backed on Kickstarter.
