      Something that some people might use is a Foco 2.0 with an indention built in where you could snap a stylus into. Not sure if there would be a demand for it, but it might be a useful feature.

    2. Creator Jim on December 1, 2012

      Thank you, but I think mine are good. One has been stuck on solid for several hours now. I'll let you know if I have any problems. You should test the washing idea. It seems to work. Maybe it was the soap and water that made it stickier...

      I also seemed to have the same problem with my black Focos not sticking well at first, but I've washed them several times (and at least one, maybe all, with dish soap and water) and let them dry thoroughly. It seems like they're working better than ever now.

    6. Creator Remco Koster on November 30, 2012

      Received them a few days ago and I LIKE !!

    7. Creator UDS (Unique Design Solutions) on November 29, 2012

      Good day Pieter, thanks as always for your time and support for UDS and our products - We truly appreciate it! We are very happy that you are enjoying your Foco. Thank you for being a part of this whole process :-) Without you and all our backers Foco would be just a drawing. Thanks again and have a great day. Cheers!!!

      Good day George, thanks as always for your time and support for UDS and our products - We truly appreciate it! We are glad you like the sound enhancement but sorry about it falling off. Please send us an email at Foco@udsproducts.com so we can work together to resolve this for you. We are here to make sure your Foco works right. Thanks again and have a great day. Cheers!!

    9. Creator George Ku on November 29, 2012

      My black Foco doesn't stay only iPad 3 very well. It falls off after a few minutes if I don't constantly check its attachment. I will try with the white one and see how that goes.

      Otherwise, the sound enhancement is awesome.

    10. Creator Pieter on November 22, 2012

      Yeah!!! Received mine yesterday! (Netherlands) Work awesome! Thanks UDS, Great job!
      Cheers,
      Pieter

      Hi UDS Just got back from a trip and I have my Foco waiting with other post thanks. I only wish the others I backed where as good as you guys thanks again. I am in the UK for other backers waiting

    12. Creator UDS (Unique Design Solutions) on November 21, 2012

      Good day Josh, thanks as always for your time and support for UDS and our products - We truly appreciate it!! We shipped your Foco on the 9th of November and sent you an email notification the same day. We have sent you a copy of the email notification to your kickstarter messaging inbox. Thanks again and we look forward to your feedback on Foco. Cheers!!

    13. Creator Josh Harney on November 21, 2012

      I have not received shipping notification or a tracking number. Please advise.

    14. Creator UDS (Unique Design Solutions) on November 18, 2012

      Good day Marie, thanks as always for your time and support for UDS and our products - We truly appreciate it!! The USPS only tracks packages until they leave the US. So if it appears as if your package has been stuck at a major hub for a few days then it has most likely left the country and is on its way closer to you :-) Please keep us informed. Cheers!!!

    15. Creator Marie-Andree Poisson on November 18, 2012

      Package seems to be stuck in Houston since 9 days ago. Probably that tracking is not working for internationnal shipping.

    16. Creator UDS (Unique Design Solutions) on November 18, 2012

      Good day Mike, thanks as always for your time and support for UDS and our products - We truly appreciate it!! We are very happy that you are enjoying your Foco.

    17. Creator UDS (Unique Design Solutions) on November 18, 2012

      Good day Marlon. Thanks as always for your time and support for UDS and our products - Especially since Capta :-) - We truly appreciate it!! We are sorry you are having a glitch with the black Foco but very happy the white one is working like a charm. Thanks for sending a message to foco@udsproducts.com this way we can log it and fix this for you. Thanks again and look out for our email. Cheers!!!

    18. Creator UDS (Unique Design Solutions) on November 18, 2012

      Good day Eric, Thanks as always for your time and support for UDS and our products - We truly appreciate it! We have sent you notification. Please check your mail. We look forward to your feedback on Foco. Cheers!!

    19. Creator Marlon Garcia on November 18, 2012

      I also encountered the same problem of my black focos not sticking to my and my sister's iPads, both naked or with cases. On he other hand, I am rocking the white foco and I can too say that it enhances the sound of my iPad with my smart case... Maybe a bad batch? But whatever it is UDS will have our backs and they will help us fix the problem.... Really glad to have backed UDS with another awesome project!!!

    20. Creator Mike Alaimo on November 17, 2012

      I received my Foco's early this week. This is an absolutely fantastic product to enhance the sound of the iPad. I am a daily "heavy" user of my iPad and I watch a lot of videos, so the Foco really makes my iPad user experience a lot better through sound enhancement! Congratulation and keep up the GREAT work! THANKS!!!

    21. Creator Éric Boutonnet on November 17, 2012

      Hi UDS team,
      I didn't receive ship notification and still waiting my 6 focos.
      Can you give me some information about it ?
      Cheers

    22. Creator UDS (Unique Design Solutions) on November 15, 2012

      Good day David, thanks as always for your time and support for UDS and our products - We truly appreciate it!! Thats great to hear that you are enjoying your Foco and you have found a new use for them. Please send us pictures to foco@udsproducts.com we would love to see the new use in action. Thanks again for all your support and have a great day. Cheers!!!

    23. Creator UDS (Unique Design Solutions) on November 15, 2012

      Good day Terry, thanks as always for your time and support for UDS and our products - We truly appreciate it!! This is far from the experience we want you to have with your Foco so please send us a message and lets work together to resolve this for you. Thanks again and have a great day. Cheers!!

    24. Creator Terry Herbert on November 15, 2012

      Received my foco's today but mine keeps falling off. I ordered six to give as gifts. Any suggestions on how to make it stick. I tried on my case and on the the iPad but both times it stays a few minutes and then falls off. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    25. Creator Alan Berry on November 14, 2012

      I received my Foco in the mail yesterday and couldn't be more pleased with the finished product. As someone else noted, my packaging was smashed but the Foco was in perfect condition. This makes a world of difference in terms of the sound production.

    26. Creator David Marrione on November 14, 2012

      Received my FOCO in the mail yesterday, guys! Thanks- it is an AWESOME addition to my ipad3. However, I did discover yet ANOTHER use for my FOCO. Just out of sheer curiosity, I tried fitting my FOCO in between the silicone case and the hard case on my iphone5. Even though the FOCO product is geared more toward the iPad, it works just as well (if not better) on the IPHONE, and channels the sound toward you, instead of downward. Works great in the car if you have a dash/windshield mount and turn on the speakerphone when receiving a call. If you like to see photo samples, just send me a UDS address where I can attach a photo to, and I'll reply ASAP. Once again, thanks for keeping us updated throughout the entire FOCO process! Go FOCO, Go!

      I am still waiting for mine. I am from Canada, Edmonton. Any idea how much longer I should wait?

    29. Creator UDS (Unique Design Solutions) on November 12, 2012

    31. Creator Brent Holloman on November 12, 2012

      I just got mine the other day and I am having issues with it sticking to my ipad 3. It stayed on for a few minutes and then falls off. I wiped it off under water, let it dry and it still does the same thing. Any thing else i can try?

    32. Creator Mack Duderstadt on November 9, 2012

      I just received mine today, and I'm actually using it this very minute. It definitely makes a huge difference on my iPad 3, Plus it actually fits perfectly within the leather case I have my iPad in. Great work!

    33. Creator Lupe on November 8, 2012

      I got my foco and its sexy!

    34. Creator Brian on November 8, 2012

      I received my FOCO today and it works perfectly. Thanks again UDS for another excellent product.

    46. Creator Marlon Garcia on July 27, 2012

      Hey guys, quick question... I am about to fill the survey and it is asking me "What color Foco would you like to receive (white or black - or in what quantity if you have a pledge with multiple Focos)?".... Can I mix them? I originally pledged for three black ones... Please let me know at your earliest convenience

      Thanks

      Greetings from UDS - Thanks to everyone for their support and comments - We truly appreciate it!! We looked through all the messages and comments and the general consensus is for the pads to be black for both white and black Foco units. We have listened and we will be moving forward with the black pads. Thanks and have a great day. Cheers!!
