Keep Your Phone Secure in Your Hand with Anker Magnetic Phone Grip – by Sandy Foster

How great did Sandy’s audio sound? Perfect because of Hush!

After Sandy made this recording for the show, she learned that Popsocket now does have a Magsafe version but the Anker Magnetic Phone grip is quite a bit different. It has a lilac flat ring that connects to the magnets on the phone, and then instead of the little pop-out thingy of a Popsocket, there’s a steel ring the flips out from the center of the lilac ring. This means your finger is 100% captive to the phone grip and would be incredibly difficult to drop. I think this looks terrific and I asked for it for my birthday! For $16 it sure looks like a useful accessory.
