If you were to get yourself a mobile phone holder, the Ripple iPhone Stand might be one of your top choices. It's pure function and no frills; features that may come as an initial surprise when you see the careful craftsmanship that's gone into it.
Yes, there is a slight but noticeable slope to the way that the base of the object has been cut and sanded, providing an incline to your touchscreen when it's resting on top. The angle matches that of the Apple keyboard for easy tactile interaction, and meanwhile it gives your eyes a better adjusted view of the sitting handset.
A pair of curved slits carved into Taiji Fujimori's Ripple iPhone Stand are designed to catch loose cables, so to help tidy the potentially tangled space around your charging device.
