I haven't received my Osmo Pocket yet but while I'm waiting for it, I was thinking about what mobile devices I could use with it. Has anyone tried to use the iPad Mini 4? Or shoould I stick with my Galaxy S8+ ?

Yes, it is OK with the Mini, but you need a extension cord. Direct to the Mini don’t work cos of the gimbal. S8 has a USB-C ? - yes...

Yup works with iPad with cable, but better off using your phone on a pyg-tech op holder.

Yeah it will be fine, but turn it on before connecting as the gimbal will keep smacking of the side of the iPad .

Hi there, thanks for the inquiry. Actually, there is a possibility that it will work, however, since it's not yet optimized with our application we cannot guarantee the stability of the application if this will work all the time while using the specific mobile device. We highly suggest you use a compatible device on Osmo Pocket that is listed on our website. For reference, kindly see the attached image below. Should you have further question, please let us know. Thank you.

Thanks. I wonder why the search function didn't find the thread you mentioned? Oh well, I've never been impressed with forum searches.

Thanks. I ordered a pyg-tech holder, it looked like the best one I could find on Amazon. Plus pyg-tech has a great reputation.

IT works fine with my iPad mini 4..  I don't really shoot with it connected to the iPad.. but I shoot with the pocket and then plug it into the iPad to view the pictures on the larger screen.

You can use the IPad with the wireless adaper and connect that way as if you plug it into the side the gimbal will hit the edge or you can use an extention cable

Thanks everyone. I think I'll use both at times. I ordered the phone holder for the S8+ plus the extension cable for the iPad Mini 4.
