The Piolo

Sometimes things don’t have so complicated to be useful. Simple can be effective most of the time. For instance, take The Piolo. This simple “stick” may not look like much, but what it lacks in complexity, it makes up for it in usefulness. If you’re a fan of watching videos on your iPhone 4, you know how tiring it can get to hold the phone up at the right angle for you to watch, or how tiring your neck will be from looking down on the phone if you leave it on the table or your lap.


Sure, there are docks just for those purposes, but what if you’re constantly on the go and can’t always bring your dock around with you? That’s where the Piolo steps in. This nifty tool that resembles an ice cream stick, with a chunk of it cut out, is meant to keep your iPhone 4 propped up at an angle to allow you to enjoy video calling, movie watching or just using the phone a more pleasant experience.

There’s really not much to say about the device – it is simple, and it does the job well. The only flaw I see would be the Piolo being designed to hold objects as thick as the iPhone 4. This means that people with cases on their iPhones will have to remove them before use – but for people with no cases, the Piolo is pretty flawless.

The Piolo is on sale now for only $6 and is available in five different colors – blue, pink, yellow, black, white and red. Head over to the Piolo website to find out more or to purchase one for yourself.
