Text Hook is a patent pending design that allows your smart phone to attach to anything with a bar basically. You can use it while shopping, exercising, pushing a stroller, riding a bike....anything really it can strap on to.
The Text Hook has a velcro strap that makes it super easy to attach. It's also super light so it doesn't set your bike handle bars off balance! It also rotates 180* so you can view your phone at any angle. For more features check out their site here.
Text Hook fits a wide range of smart phones listed here.
The Text Hook is a great product for moms! At times it isn't worth the effort to take out of the diaper bag and set it all up on a shopping cart if its just a quick outing. But it is great for going on walks and having your phone at a convenient level, able to view and text without having to stop and dig it out.
If you keep your grocery list on your phone, it also works great to keep that list in full view while grabbing groceries and watching children.
It's also perfect for using during workouts if you keep your music on your phone. Some bikes or machines don't have any where to set your phone, and you don't want to keep it in your pocket, and you don't always have an arm band to wear. Plus, you can still text while working out!
The only thing I found a bit inconvenient, besides those times where it isn't necessary to set up, like short trips, was the fact that my phone blacks out after so many seconds of non use and the only way to turn it back on was to push a button on the top of my phone (it's an HTC EVO). But I found if I pressed just right on the plastic covering the top, it worked well enough.

One other thing, it also couldn't fit my phone, in it's case (an otter box). So I would be a little nervous of dropping it. Hopefully just keep a good screen protector on it though and you should be fine!
