The Glif is an iPhone 4/4S accessory with two indispensable functions: mounting your iPhone onto a tripod and propping up your iPhone at respective angles. The goal was to create something small, simple and elegant. But out of this simple design emerges innumerable uses. Mount your iPhone to a tripod for taking great pictures or making movies. Prop your iPhone up for hands-free FaceTiming or to watch videos.The Glif is made from recyclable rubberized plastic that feels great and plays nice with your phone and is little sufficient to fit snugly in your pocket, purse, or backpack. It has a 1/4″-20 thread that fits any frequent tripod or camera mount. The Glif is designed to work with a “naked” (caseless) iPhone and is compatible with both the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S.

Anything less than 5 Stars is unexceptable…
By Nate D
This product does EXACTLY what you need it to do. The problem is a lot of people don’t really understand what they WANT it to do.
My team and I used this little piece to successfully record 3 television commercials on a new iPhone 4s. That’s right. This little piece allowed us to fully integrate into our high-end production equipment and successfully get stellar shots that shocked our clients and passer-bys alike that we were using a smartphone to achieve the look and feel we were wanting.
The Glif is probably one of the best engineered pieces I’ve seen for a sub-$20 accessory on the iPhone. The grip is tight enough that we used the camera in multiple positions, including upside down on a balancing rig to get a low-profile picture field and had zero issues with any dropping of the phone. The greatest part about this is that you can USE your phone for projects like this. I would rather use my phone to capture ground-level or low-profile action shots where we used to be conscerned about getting our professional camera equipment hit or jostled.
Buy this if you are a novice photographer or videographer who wants to get the BEST out of your iPhone. And if you are a professional and want to take a step out of your comfort zone – this is the BEST $20 accessory I could recommend you buy!

Great Simple Product, Beautifully Designed
The Glif is a great product. It functions as a tripod mount for the iPhone, and can be placed to hold the iPhone in a number of great ways for hands-free usage. I use it with a gorillapod for time-lapse movies and GPS navigation all the times. The product is very well designed and the finishing is better than I expected. Very worth the $20 price tag!

So smart and so useful!
There are several other products out there that can function as a tripod mount or a stand for the iphone, but all of them are so clunky and ugly to pair with a device that’s so nicely designed and refined. But the Glif not only serves BOTH functions as a tripod mount and stand, it’s able to accomplish it with a simple design that’s definitely less clunky than anything else I’ve seen. The Glif fits on the iphone perfectly and is so small that I can carry it around in my purse everywhere I go. I love it so much that I started giving them as gifts for friends and family since they make really unique gifts.
Bottom line, very clever little product. Highly recommend.
