One of the nice things about a large screen on a mobile device is the ability to watch movies and video without straining your eyes too much.  A problem for travelers, however, is holding your device at a proper angle while squished into your seat on flight where passengers are packed in like sardines.  Your ability to create a platform for you phone from your unopened package of shortbread cookies and an ingeniously folded cocktail napkin is impresssive…  at least until your flight hits turbulence right as you are dozing off and your mobile hits the floor.

This is where the MovieWedge comes in handy…

My friend Brent has been using the MovieWedge for the last 6 – 8 months and and absolutely swears by it. The MovieWedge is a device so simple that you will kick yourself for not inventing it yourself.   It essentially is a bean bag with ledge on it for your mobile device to sit.  More precisely, the MovieWedge is a 2.5 oz micro suede plush bag, filled with light foam beads that nicely cradles your mobile device at a the perfect angle for your view pleasure.   It is about 4″ x 3.5″ x 3″ (L x W x H) when in use and can squish down to a ball about 2.5″ in diameter. It is quick to use and quick to put away and has become a part of Brent’s standard travel kit.

You can, of course use the MovieWedge in places other than a coach seat on an airline and costing only $9.99, is something everyone who regularly watches movies on their mobile device should check out.  Trust me, 10 bucks is well worth the unnecessary frustration of dropping your phone on the floor and having it slide 2 rows of seats in front of you.

If you find yourself on planes a bit for business and like to use that time to watch movies or TV shows on your mobile device(s) take a look at the MovieWedge its only $9.99 at Amazon.
