Review

We took AIRMATE Mobile for a trip and we liked it! In fact, we loved it and so did the seatmate who kept peering over to our movie on our iPhone. It was even east for them to watch.

Functionality & Design

Seeing is believing so we’ve made you a video:

It is possible to adjust the angle slightly, so you can optimize the experience in case you happen to be on a sunny trip.

AIRMATE Mobile uses a simple design that makes it easy to use on airplanes. It is designed to fit the table lock (or hook it to a closed tray table) in front of you and it is tested positive to work on several airlines. That being said, as it uses the table lock or table itself, there are some seats that it cannot be used on, such as front row seats and some emergency seats.

Quality

We’ve used it for a year now with no signs of any issues. In the package, there are two extra rubber bands included.
