Studio Neat Looks To Reinvent March Madness With It’s Simple Bracket iPhone App

The duo behind the Glif tripod mount for iPhone and the Cosmonaut stylus are back at Kickstarter again to raise funds for their new Simple Bracket App for the iPhone. Their goal with this project is to reinvent the way people fill out brackets for college basketball’s March Madness. For those unfamiliar, March Madness is a time every year in which 68 teams play in a single elimination tournament. Enthusiasts of the game will fill out brackets trying to predict which teams will continue on in the tournament, including the President

Simple Bracket works to redo the way brackets are filled out on smartphones by allowing the entire bracket to be viewed as one scrollable list instead of having it all fit onto a small screen. They also claim to use a better scoring system developed by a biostatistician that takes into account more refined statistics like team seed and chances of winning each round. Finally, it brings playing with friends into the digital age by pairing it up with your Twitter account. Funding will complete on March 5, 14 days before the tournament starts.

Studio Neat Outs Glif+ iPhone Tripod Mount With Extreme Add-Ons

We love the Glif at Gadgetmac and think it's one of the best tripod mount adapters available for the iPhone 4S and iPhone 4 out there. Great news for iPhone photogs came out from Studio Neat of a new add-on called the Serif and Ligature that help the Glif be that much better. The Serif attaches to the bottom stand slot of the Glif and further provides additional support and secure hold of your iPhone in more extreme conditions like shooting upsides down or mounting your iPhone on your bike using the Gorillapod flexible tripod while the Ligature is a metal keyring loop attachment the screws to the Glif's tripod thread.

The $12 +Pack is for those who already own a Glif and want in on the fun while the $30 Glif+ includes a Glif and both Serif and Ligature adapters besides the classic $20 Glif tripod mount. Both the +Pack and Glif+ packages are expected to start shipping in two weeks' time. Studio Neat has also made good use of the Glif+ packaging that transforms into a mini table tripod for that novelty effect. Video after the break!
