I'm not exactly an accessory guy: I'm not into cases and skins, I like my iPhone naked. I purchased a Just Mobile Xtand, though: it's a great way to keep the iPhone at a good visible angle on my desk and, frankly, it looks great next to the iMac.
But the Glif could be a lot better: a stand/tripod mount hybrid that doesn't suck, doesn't look bad and, most of all, could finally help you get things done. It could be a great way to use your iPhone as a digital clock, a great camera tripod...just watch the video below. Why am I saying "could"? Because the guys behind the Glif need our help. They have created a prototype, but the manufacturing process will cost around $10.000 to be completed.
Glif is a simple iPhone 4 accessory with two primary functions: mounting your iPhone to a standard tripod, and acting as a kickstand to prop your phone up at an angle.
The idea for the Glif was first formed when we realized the iPhone 4 is literally the best camera we've ever owned. With the addition of HD video recording and High Dynamic Range photography, it's clear Apple is positioning the iPhone as a very high quality portable camera. But because of its small form factor (and Apple's minimalist design approach) it will never contain a threaded nut for attaching a tripod - standard on almost all photo and video cameras.
