“At iOttie, we are constantly innovating to enhance users’ experiences with their smartphones,” said iOttie Senior Director, Eric Kang. “By working with Amazon to design the Easy One Touch Connect, we are able to provide more value to customers by enabling them to quickly and easily interact with Alexa from the road. The Easy One Touch Connect also holds a smartphone safely and securely to a dashboard or windshield so you can focus on the road. With this device, we are expanding the potential and capabilities of smartphones in every aspect of our lives.”

“We want to make Alexa available to more customers in the car, and that means creating the tools for device makers like iOttie to embed Alexa directly into their automotive products,” said Ned Curic, VP of Alexa Auto at Amazon. “The Easy One Touch Connect enhances the driving experience by providing a simple, intuitive phone mount with secure mounting capabilities, and with Alexa built-in, drivers can enjoy hands-free access to many of their favorite Alexa features – all while keeping their hands on the wheel and eyes on the road.”

The Easy One Touch Connect from iOttie is one of the first automotive accessories built using the Alexa Mobile Accessory Kit. With access to tens of thousands of Alexa Skills, users can ask Alexa to play music, check the weather, get driving directions, control smart home devices and more, all while enjoying smooth communication via dual high-quality microphones and noise-canceling software that filters out ambient road noise. The device also incorporates iOttie’s patented Easy One Touch mechanism, which enables users to easily lock and remove their smartphone with one hand. Thanks to iOttie’s superior shock-absorbing technology, the Easy One Touch Connect offers the stability and security iOttie users have come to know and trust, ensuring smartphones stay locked in place so users can focus on the road.
