From the Creatives:

This has been a project in the making for over 2 years, now with a working prototype that we feel is just about ready to start moving into the manufacturing stage but we need your help to get there.

THE WORLD’S FINEST UNIVERSAL SMARTPHONE HOLDER FOR THE CAR: This has been a project in the making for over 2 years, now with a working prototype that we feel is just about ready to start moving into the manufacturing stage but we need your help to get there. The goal was to create the best possible solution to hold a smartphone in a vehicle. It had to be very stylish in design to match todays smartphones and the interior of a car, be of a high quality build, accommodate as many different smartphones on the market as possible (mainly with the iPhone in mind to be used with or without a case) and it also had to be very easy and simple to use.

With a goal to create the world’s finest, the bar had to be raised to create a universal as possible but very stylish and most importantly amazingly functional smartphone holder.

INTUITIVE TECHNOLOGY: The most exciting feature about ‘Ultima’ is it’s intuitive holding mechanism. To open you press and hold the release button then place your phone in the holder and press in the sides till desired hold. Once you press in the holder it cannot be pushed backwards until the release button has been pressed, even if you use force it will not move backwards!

It also does not have measured increments when sliding, basically the more or less you press is dependent on exactly how much you press, giving ‘Ultima’ the most accurate hold to be found on any universal holder out there!

This technology also eliminates the need for any other accessory needed to mount your phone, so no need for little magnets to stick on the back of your phone, or a certain case to use just to mount your phone. I believe people want more choice, choice to change their case, or even there phone but still be able to use the same holder and not be limited.

Who at Gear Diary Backed It: Dan

At What Level Did We Back: Dan backed it for $55 since that is the level at which backers get one of the holders.

Why We Backed It: Elana! Yes, Elana got an iPhone and doesn’t love the car cradle she is using. This looked like a great option for her since it is strong, adjustable and works with devices of various widths

How’s Communication From the Creatives Been?: Excellent. There have been frequent, relevant, updates. And as things have moved forward they have made some changes in the product design in order to better meet backer’s needs.

What Has the Experience Been: Very positive. We are hoping the final product is as good as it looks thus far.

Would You Recommend this Kickstarter Project?: YES! And we are rushing this post out because there are less than two hours left to become a backer.
