Quirky Upwrite

This sleek zinc keychain could probably get by on looks alone, but don't be surprised if you find yourself touting its more practical charms. Besides doubling as a handy stylus for any touchscreen, the special clamping mechanism also connects sturdily and safely to the side of your smartphone to serve as a stand—so you can keep your hands free and your business in sight.

Confusing and Doesn't Work
Purchased

I hate to write bad reviews, but this one is warranted. I am upset I paid for this thing. My major issue is that the stylus barely (if at all!) works. I have tried to use it on my iPhone and my iPad. If I press using the tip of the stylus, nothing reads on my devices. I have spent so much time trying to make it work, I figured out I could only get it to work if I awkwardly used the side of it....which is ineffective. I also couldn't get the kickstand part of it to hold my iPhone 6 up, so I ultimately threw it away.

Don't do it
Purchased

I purchased this thinking about how nice it would be. Don't believe it. My experience was that is will hold up your phone, you just can't touch it. I thought it would be great for surfing and playing games, but it is not.

Dumb Device
Sampled

Really 27 dollars for this. Ugh. Glad mine was free. Tried to use it but really just a waste of space and materials.

Useless

Really? I need to carry around a piece of hardware so I won't have to hold my phone when I want to look at it? Yet another Birchbox item to throw away. It might not be a bad idea to get some consumer feedback on box items before launching them to the full subscriber list.

Just not useful

As many other reviewers have said - (1) who needs a stylus for their phone, and a rather chunky one at that, and (2) it doesn't fit well, even if your phone is not in a case, and as a result you get a funny tilt to the phone trying to use it as a kickstand.

Not Useful

Not impressed with this product. Found that it did not work particularly well with my iPhone, and found limited uses for it.

Nothing to write about...

I'm really not that impressed with this. The product doesn't fit around your phone if it has a case on it (which most of us do)! Which, if you're not able to use it to hold your phone in place, there really isn't a point in having this product. And, call me a simpleton, but I don't know why anyone needs to carry a stylus for their cell phone. I thought the days of the PDA were over?! I gave mine away and the person I gave it to doesn't have it anymore either.

lame

This is a cool idea but it only fits around the phone without a case on it and the stylus doesnt really work that well. I wouldnt buy it.

Glad it was free

I wouldn't buy this. I no longer use it, even though it was free. For my iPad Air, it doesn't work as a stylus, and I would not use it as a "prop-up" mechanism at all.

Shoddy Construction

Although a good design, the construction is shoddy at best. It broke the first time I took it out of the package and was looking at it. I wouldn't trust it to support anything valuable.
