Just Mobile Xtand Vent

A lot of folks are turning to car sharing services these days, especially in larger cities, as it’s often a more economical — and eco-conscious — alternative to car ownership. Of course, using your iPhone in a Zipcar or Car2go can present its own unique set of challenges, and a lot of the more traditional car mounts take a lot more effort to use and aren’t exactly easy to carry around when you’re hopping between different cars.

Scosche MagicMount Pro Dash, Pro Vent + Pro Window/Dash

We’ve been big fans of Scosche’s MagicMount systems for iOS devices for a while, and the company has recently released new Pro versions of the mounting system. Three different mounts make up the MagicMount Pro family — Pro Dash ($30), Pro Vent ($30), Pro Window/Dash ($40). Scosche claims the Pro mounts feature magnets which are 30 percent stronger than those featured in the original MagicMount series. There aren’t any major changes in the way the system works, however, so we’d urge you to check out our reviews of the original MagicMount series or MagicMount XL Dash/Window for further insight.

Spigen Style Ring

Spigen’s Style Ring ($25) is an interesting little add-on for your iPhone. Style Ring is a rotating aluminum ring attached to a small plastic piece which attaches to the back of an iPhone. The ring can be worn on one’s finger to prevent dropping the iPhone during use, and Spigen points out that using the ring to hold the phone can allow you to access more of the screen during one-handed use. The ring, which can be moved and turned in all directions, also doubles as a small kickstand. It even comes with a small hook mount for a dashboard. Style Ring can be affixed to the iPhone itself, and it works with some cases, too. The product comes in white, black, or rose gold.
