So It Goes

Designed by Bay Area natives Brad Leong, Danny Fukuba, and Sam Gordon, this clever, hands-free device possesses Silicon Valley design sensibility, with its clean, minimal aesthetic and its user-friendly functionality. Using a single, configurable piece, this little dynamo allows you to use your smart phone in ways that you couldn't before. Using its strong suction pads, you can use the OonaTM to take your cellphone wherever you need to go: stick it to your cabinets to peruse cookbooks as you prep dinner, to a whiteboard to reference typed notes as you teach, to your bedpost to use it as an alarm clock, or to your windshield to avoid losing your phone beneath your car seats. And its innovative mount allows the Oona to serve as a tripod when you need to snap a shot or take a video. It simply screws in just like any other camera mount, so you can take impressive timelapse photography with nothing more than this clever piece and your smartphone. The design also allows you to grab all the way around to the back of the phone making it easy to type while on the dock. The primary component is made out of aircraft-grade aluminum that is polished and anodized for a strong, scratch-resistant finish. Designed in California. Made in China.

    Comments about THE OONA:

    I use this product daily. The footprint is so much smaller than having the phone flat on my desk. It allows me to use the phone safely as a GPS in the car. I can even mount the phone to my camera walking stick now! You definitely need to lick the suction cups before using it, but I've had no problems with it sticking to my case.

        Comments about THE OONA:

        My husband uses this for both personal and business work. He travels constantly, so the option to use the Oona as a GPS is great given the fact that not all rental cars are equipped. He can rest his phone in any situation now. Desk, train, plane, you name it.

        This product came promptly and in very nice packaging.

            Comments about THE OONA:

            I am using Oona to hold my iphone in the car when i commute, so that i can see/hear gps directions or easily access my music.
            I wish that the suction was better on more surfaces and that the body of the stand was .5-.75" longer.
            It would be great if there were more openings to screw the rubber stoppers into on the long flat sides as well as the ends.

                I use it to keep phone visible and in one place at home, and for one-hand use. Suction cups don't really work on protective rubber case of a heavy android phone, and there should be one shallower hold angle. Otherwise, could be a very handy gadget.

                  This thing needs your saliva to glue to phone (otherwise it doesn't hold your phone), which is ridiculous.

                  Great compact stand that works well with my iPhone - especially when it's in a smooth plastic case! Suction is great although would be wary of heights. Always be sure to moisten when sticking onto phone and other surface. All in all I'm happy with the purchase!

                    Comments about THE OONA:

                    The phone has to be very clean for this to work. However in everyday use it tends to fall off - this is particularly alarming when it's on the car windscreen.

                    It's also very difficult to get it orientated straight and putting it on and off quickly.

                    For a stand there are far easier and simpler solutions out there.
