Do I need to prepare the surface of my device before attaching iFlyPad?

For best results, we suggest it to be clean, dust and oil free. Often times, holding these devices in your hand can deposit a fine layer of oil that should firstly be removed. Be sure to follow any manufacturer instructions regarding cleaning your device.

Not wishing to obstruct the Drivers view, IFlyPad was not designed for this purpose. Our design calls for straight angles. iFlyPad works well on non-driver windows of airplanes, buses, taxes and so on.
Apart from using iFlyPad to mount a TAB or Smart phone onto a screen, can it be used for anything else?
Yes indeed. IFlyPad is multi-functional, so you can use it to:

  • Support your device in an upright position just like a photo frame. This position is ideal for video conferencing
  • Hold it in your hand so that you no longer have to grip the device’s edges which can sometime interfere with its’ operation
  • Support a smart phone or TAB by attaching it to a window such as a car, train, bus, boat or even airplane so you can video the journey. There are so many things you can do with iFlyPad because of its versatility.

Is there an optimal method for attaching iFlyPad to a device?
The type of sucker you attach to your device will very much depend on the device itself. For an iPad, we suggest attaching the BIG sucker to the back of the iPad – usually over the Apple logo, and then using the SMALL suckers on the place for it to be attached to. Remember, that before attaching the sucker to the iPad, you should firstly make sure it is clean, and grease free. The back of an iPad tends to be porous, and retain grease which could affect the efficiency of the sucker.
For an iPhone, the SMALL suckers are more effective due to the reduced size of the device – and again, please make sure the unit is clean.
An HTC One, also uses the small suckers.
For a Nexus Tablet, we suggest using the BIG sucker on the back, and in fact using two iFlyPads – one on either side of the Nexus logo.
If using the small suckers, we firstly suggest placing your device face down onto a flat sturdy surface. Next place the side of iFlyPad with the small suckers onto the desired location and then pressing down firmly on the flat surface of iFlyPad that is both left and right, then top and bottom and pressing with your thumbs. This will help eliminate any trapped air bubbles…
Is it OK to use iFlyPad to support other devices, such as a Wi-Fi router for increased signal coverage?
Sure it is, but just remember that iFlyPad was primarily designed for temporary fixing.
Can I attach iFlyPad to other locations in my car, meaning not the dashboard or windshield?
Absolutely. IFlyPad is versatile in where it can be attached and what it can be used for. We are hearing of people attaching it to side windows with their Smartphones for hands-free calling, and some have attached the small suckers to the radio LCD panel and the large sucker to an iPad Mini. Others have attached it to the larger display panels you are now finding in some newer cars. Wherever you attach it to, just be sure it does not impede your vision and safety.
