Smartphones are fantastic for many uses besides it's main use as a phone. As a student at a lecture, with virtually no space for your phone, this clipboard works fantastic! With all the great apps available, the Smartphone Clipboard is great for taking notes, recording lectures, and messaging!

The Smartphone Clipboard is also great for:

  • Realtors
