Love your smartphone but having a hard time finding a functional spot for it while out and about town with the kiddos? I seem to always hear my phone ringing but can rarely find it in time to answer it and if I do get lucky enough to have found it at the bottom of my purse or diaper bag I then struggle to have a conversation because of needing my hands to pick up the pacifier off the floor, or getting more snacks to my daughter so she doesn’t alienate the public or even changing a diaper while on the phone!
I recently was given the opportunity to try the new texthook™, a “dashboard for your mobile life”, the new MUST HAVE stroller accessory for every mom (dad too). Texthook was featured on the Today show and is the hottest stroller accessory for 2011!
Texthook is a portable smartphone holder that attaches to virtually ALL strollers and can also attach to bicycle bars, shopping carts or your favorite workout machine at the gym! With all the apps that are available to us now a days wouldn’t it be nice to attach the texthook, set your phone in there and have one less thing to hold onto and keep track of during our busy days as parents?! The patent pending accessory secures your phone while still providing easy access to the touchscreen or keyboard and is perfect to use with Bluetooth®.
The texthook was VERY easy to install on my larger Graco stroller (single handle) as well as our compact umbrella stroller (double handle). The compact design is so well thought out that when I was done shopping at the mall I just slid the texthook right into my diaper bag for our next adventure.
There are many features that I absolutely loved about texthook…the first being how simple it was to figure out how to strap-on the texthook and also detach the holder when I was done, thank goodness for velcro! Texthook is also lightweight but still durable–it held up wonderfully when my 17 month old got a hold of it and was testing it out on our hardwood floors 🙂
Texthook is designed to fit most smartphones that are on the market and the easy to slide adjuster helps you customize to the size of your phone for a secure fit and also to insert/remove your phone easily with just a simple sliding motion. Worried about a glare on your phone? No worries! The texthook cradle rotates 180º so your screen will be visible for you if you are inside shopping or outside enjoying a beautiful sunny day at the park. If you spend a lot of time on your phone and you love to multitask then this is the perfect accessory for you. My husband even loved the texthook and was excited to try it out while us girls did some shopping!!
You can buy the Texthook on the Texthook website for $25.99.
