Texthook Review & Giveaway -- ENDED



As soon as I saw the Texthook, I knew I needed one. I have a smart phone and I have been trying to figure out how to use my phone while I am pushing the stroller. I know that sounds a little odd, why wouldn't I simply stop walking to use my phone. When I go for walks with my kids, sometimes my friends would call. Whenever I need to be on the phone for more than a couple of minutes (coordinating playdates or scheduling for mommy's night out), I have a hard time holding onto the phone while I am pushing the stroller. Texthook definitely has made things easier for me. My texthook is on my stroller. Now I am able to check facebook or chat with my friends while I am out for walks. I am also able to check my text messages very easily with the help of this little tool.





The only minor problem I had with the texthook is that I have a very thick protective cover on my smart phone. The smart phone did not fit in the texthook until I removed the protective cover from it. With a normal cover that would not have been a problem, but if you have a protective / decorative cover filled with rhinestones like mine, you might have to remove the cover like I did. Other than that, the texthook works very well and I am very happy with it.

In addition to using it with your stroller, you could also use it on your exercise bike or on a shopping cart. To purchase one, please visit the Texthook website.

Many thanks to Texthook. The company has generously offered 1 texthook as a giveaway prize to one of my lucky readers (US residents only please).
