I’m proud to say I’ve never bought a digital photo frame as a gift for someone, even though they’re a particularly popular item around the holidays. But I would consider gifting the Appstand, which is nothing more than a cleverly designed picture frame for the iPhone. Using the slideshow option it instantly turns either a 3G or 3GS into a digital photo frame, and thanks to a built-in stand it also makes other apps like alarm clocks even more useful.
When mounted in the frame you still have easy access to all the buttons and ports on the iPhone, and thanks to a price tag of just $16.99 the Appstand comfortably rides the line between novelty gag gift and slightly useful accessory.
