Rain Design makes arguably the best stands around. Their iSlider mimics Apple's aluminum finish, and conceals a slide-out that holds iOS devices at any angle, either portrait or landscape. That makes the iSlider great for getting things done or for movie watching. Now, Gizmodo readers can grab it for 20% off.
The iSlider is also only one inch thick, so it's compact enough to take anywhere, and it even accommodates cases up to ⅝″ (incl. the Apple Smart Cover & Case). We think at $39.99 (it's all time low price) iSlider adds up to a great combination of looks, portability and functionality.
Plus, the reviewers love it…
