The accessory every iPhone 6 Plus user needs: A thumb extender!

iphone 6 plus thumb extension accessory finger stylus thanko
It’s no secret that the iPhone 6 Plus is big. A lot of people are complaining about how awkward it is to stretch their fingers across the massive display, but luckily, a Tokyo company called Thanko has come up with a solution. The company calls its latest accessory a “finger stylus,” but what it really is, is a thumb extender.

Never again will those with small thumbs be forced to strain their digits to flip through home screens, tap an app, or reach the Notification Center. Thanko’s finger stylus is a flesh-colored silicon thimble with a black strip inside that pokes out at the top. At first glance, it looks like something you’d pick up for your 5-year-old cousin at the dollar store, or one of those fake witch fingers they used to hand out during Halloween.

Still, no matter how ridiculous it looks, it appears to work. The video below shows the finger stylus in action on different smartphone screens. It extends your thumb up to 0.6 inches, so stretching is no longer required for those hard to reach parts of the screen. Better yet, this must-have iPhone 6 Plus accessory costs just $14.  It’s unclear whether the finger stylus is available outside of Japan, but it’s clearly a bargain.

After all, as Mastercard would say: Thumb extender? $14. True reachability on your iPhone 6 Plus? Priceless.
