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.
This seemed like a really weird product. I don't like big bulky key chains. No uses a stylus for their phone. It just seems really dumb. Something my grandfather would buy.1
I will admit, the Quirky Upright certainly lives up to it's name. However, the functionality isn't the greatest. When I use it as a stylus, it is quite awkward to hold, and the tip isn't the most responsive (more often than not I had to double or triple tap in order for my smartphone or tablet screens to respond, and I don't have a screen protector on either). Also if you use it as a kickstand with the phone upright it covers up some of the screen, which is a little off-putting. It actually does a pretty good job when using the kickstand to support the phone when it is sideways, i.e. watching video. I received the Quirky Upright in my box this month, but if you're looking for a stylus/stand, I can't justify paying almost $30 for it.3
I took this in to the office for the first time today, and everyone noticed. It works great and has a cool look. I love using it as a stylus and as an iPhone stand. I've already added this to my key-chain.5
This is a cool item just to have around. I had it propping my phone up when my girl came home, naturally I no longer have it. I will probably order another just to have around because it is a cool little thing to use.5
I like a stylus over the texting gloves for control, but they can be difficult to keep track of. With winter coming it may come in handy. As for the stand, I usually prop my phone on my coffee mug if taking a break at work. If it worked on my tablet with its skin on, that would be nice.4
It seems to be well made, and certainly works as both a kickstand and stylus, however you can't use it as both at the same time, which would be nice. When I use a stylus I'd rather have the tablet or phone in front of me and poke it, not have to hold it.4
I tried this for a couple days over the weekend to stream baseball off my phone at the bar and love the kickstand aspect of this! I fully plan on using the stylus for my notetaking apps and really will be using the product on the go to prop my phone up to watch sports and movies.4
I was really disappointed with the quirky upright from October's box. Considering it was the "big ticket" item in the box, it left me desiring a lot more... The entire thing has a cheap quality to it and doesn't really serve any purpose. Its frustrating having it latched on the entire time when on your phone and it's too big to function as a keychain. Must say this def. ruined my october box.1
I have used the product once or twice since I got it from my birchbox. It is a bit too big to carry around on your key ring. It is a nice tool for around the office or traveling. I find no use for it, personally.1
I love Quirky. The company is very aptly named as a majority of their products are - surprise - very quirky. As we speak, I have my iphone proped up with the stylus - has a lot of unique features and I have been needing a stylus for my ipad. Perfect timing!5
