Navigation and Musical Assistant
I love this. One of the things that I discovered to use this for is in my car. I attached it to a selfie stick propped in between the driver seat and middle console and voila, I have my iPad mounted and can see it while driving. My iPad has its own data line so I have the biggest device for navigation. The smaller mount is a bonus for my iPhone6. I previously have a similar iPhone mount from a different vendor but it was damaged due to an accident.
I am an amateur ukulele player and most of my songs are in the iPhone/iPad. These mounts are just perfect for using it as a music stand. Not only can I see the chords/lyrics but can also watch a youtube cover of a song so I can play along while performing. I have a portable karaoke machine now with this setup. I use an old camera tripod as the stand, and beside it is the microphone stand.

Good product only give it at 3 because it only has the ability to be mounted vertically not horizontally. UPDATE 3/17: i have to change my rating to 5 STARS because after Vastar was made aware of my concerns they listened and actually instituted a product change to include mounting both vertically and horizontally. Their customer service was a pleasant experience in which they went way beyond the call of duty to make sure i was not only a HAPPY but SATISFIED customer. iIfeel they have great support and serve their customers sincerely.
Great Products Great Service

We have used the iPad adapter a few times with much success. The one thing we noted is that because of the dimensions of the iPad, if the tripod is flimsy, it is not truly secure. Although that had nothing to do with the adapter, it is something to remember.
As for the adapter, the locking mechanism is simple to use and holds the device securely, the padding prevents the back from being scratched, but the bracket arms are not padded, although I do not think that any damage will occur to the edges of the device.
We have not actually used the phone adapter yet, we have played with it and found the metal part to be rather difficult to work with. It is an internal spring rather than the external locking system of the tablet adapter. I have a LifeProof case on my 6 and it made the setup rather awkward.
Still, an absolutely justified purchase. With Marching Band season in full swing, we have used it repeatedly and been pleased.

Excellent Combination for Filming Sales Videos with a Teleprompter App.
This is such a well-made and convenient package of tripod holders for iPhone and iPad. I have an iPad Pro and since it's got such a great camera in it now, I will use it for filming myself for videos. Or, I use the iPhone tripod adapter for filming with the iPhone and use the iPad Pro on the iPad adapter as a teleprompter with a teleprompter app. Perfect!

Love this! Works great with my tripod
Love this! Works great with my tripod, which is EXACTLY why I needed it. The bigger ipad holder is big enough to hold the ipad mini horizontally and vertically. I can even hold the iphone (awkwardly) vertically. I say it's awkward because it can't be centered, since that would be where the camera hole is, but you can balance the clip on the corner of the phone and it holds in place for a picture. If you need to do a iphone horizontal pic, the iphone attachment works great as well.

When I first received this I could not get the iPad mount to open sufficiently to hold a tablet. Fortunately another review referenced a YouTube video which I was able to access. And voila, one quick pull and it has worked perfectly ever since.
It would be better if it worked fine just out of the box. But somehow there is a notch that it has to be pulled beyond. I have not let it go too small ever since so I do not know if it is there permanently or not. It is also a bit touchy as apparently you can pull too hard and it just pulls apart. This issue is the reason I took off one star.
Aside from the initial adjustment it is very sturdy and has worked well.

Great to hold your tablet! And your phone too ! I use to from cooking, watching "How to" videos, and news while I am getting ready. Or just being lazy.

Good help to hold your gadgets.
It holds my iPad and iPhone really well for that videoclip and for my reviews of my channel. This are really well made and helps to get your work done fast.

Great combo pack, well worth the price.
The phone holder seems fine, as long as you are going to film horizontally. The tablet holder would not extend, no matter what we tried doing. It was so stuck that my husband accidentally broke it while trying to get it to extend, so we never found out if it worked with our tablet.
EDIT: The company shipped me a replacement, and the replacement works great! The tablet holder fits my old Samsung tablet horizontally or vertically, and the holder is easy to attach to my tripod, like any standard tripod adapter.

Love Them Both Would Buy Again and Recommend Them
Both of these are awesome and well made especially the Tablet one. I love how it fits my Kindle HD snug and its easy to use as well as remove from my tripod in a snap to move my tablet closer to my PC for downloading of image and video files. I feel my Kindle is safe in it. The one for the phone is sturdy and also easy to use. Some of these I have had are hard to open up enough to fit my phone in them, this one is just right. I have long nails and I don't like breaking them. The last one I had was hard to stretch open.
