I purchased this tablet stand to use to hold my phone or iPad so that I could surf the internet, check emails, read books and stream shows while in bed or while cooking and crafting. It works well after I got the hang of properly adjusting it at the right angle. It does not have to ability to swivel around so I must take my time and get it adjusted at the perfect viewing angle. My daughter uses it to hold her Nintendo switch while she plays it. It can be a little frustrating trying to get the larger tablets into the mount and I do have to take the case off my iPad in order to use it but it works well for my needs.
