Disclaimer: This is a sponsored collaboration with Upper Desk who kindly provided a portable cabinet mount and a portable table mount for making this review possible. All opinions are mine.
I enjoy gadgets that make my life easier, so when Upper Desk offered me the opportunity to review their Upper Desk Portable Mounts I got really excited. Upper Desk is a company that is based on innovation and the savvy of inventor-Roderick Phillips who is the mastermind behind their products.
I have tried many mounts and tripods to film in my kitchen using either my iPhone or the iPad and have to say that the Upper Desk Portable Mounts are a winner. They are user friendly and fit perfectly. They are also versatile, as long as you have a secure place to put them like a cabinet or a table.
As a food blogger and recipe developer I do a lot of recipe testing in my kitchen. It gets messy when trying to write on a piece of paper or a note pad the list of ingredients and specific measurements used as well as the method. This is needed because I do not want to miss a detail or forget what I did to publish recipes that will come out perfect in anybody’s kitchen.
Using the Upper Desk Portable Mounts, specifically the one for the cabinet is very useful. I have the iPad right there and I can make notes and even take pictures of the process while the recipe testing process.
Also, when I am busy in the kitchen I do not have time to answer the phone and since my iPad is mounted in the cabinet and synced with my iPhone I can take the phone call right there and handsfree. I have even participated in Google hangouts without leaving the kitchen.
The use of the Upper Desk mounts is also recommended for the office. I use the Upper Desk Table mount to free space in my desk while having my iPad handy to watch TV or hold a meeting via FaceTime or Google Hangouts.
The mounts are sturdy and that is also important to avoid accidents. If you are looking for a gift I recommend the Upper Desk mounts. Watch the video for you see see how easy and hassle free they are to use.
I am in love with these two products, a must try for everyone that loves technology like me!
