You’re to the local coffee spot to grab the usual, and on your way out, a text rolls in. For those of us that are fine with typing in portrait mode, this is no biggie. One hand will deal with the phone, and the other can nurse your newly acquired caffeinated beverage. There are speed texters out there though that think anything aside from landscape mode simply won’t do.
If you want to type like a speed demon, you’ll need a home for your coffee while your hands are at work. The Uppercup is a phone case and cup holder combination that intends to take over that job for you. It’s around two inches thick, and is made of a lightweight material. The open slider on the bottom will pop out the cup holder, and you know what to do from there. It should be noted that this is one of those crowdfunding deals, and likely won’t see the light of day. One of these would cost anywhere from $25-$30, depending on which era of iPhone you have.
