Read this article for the accessories that can make you movie experience on your iPad or iPhone an entertaining experience. Read about the tools that you can use to comfortable watch a movie on your Apple device with a stand, speaker and projector

Apple's hand held devices, with their big screen sizes have really made their themselves good tools to watch videos and see movies. To make this experience entertaining and comfortable, there are numerous movie streaming apps for Apple devices like iPad and iPhone as well a variety of accessories that you can get. Most of these accessories are best suited for the iPad, since it has a larger screen for viewing, but there are still a couple of things floating around the web that can help you regardless of screen size. Here are a few accessories that really catch your eye.

Kensington PowerBack Stand to watch movies on iPad

Having to hold your iPad throughout an entire film viewing can be tiresome. You're definitely going to want a good solid stand to keep the device in an optimal viewing position. The PowerBack has a kickstand with three different "snap in" viewing angles. This lets you relax while you watch your movies on iPad and eliminates the need to sit perfectly still while holding your product. But the Kensington PowerBack isn't just about comfort. This product offers a few other purposes that make it a great buy.

Battery life is easily sapped when you're watching a movie and those 10 hours can shrink down if you don't have a plug-in power source readily available. The folks at Kensington took this issue into consideration when designing the PowerBack, as they added a built-in 4400mAh battery. This battery pack will give you an estimated five extra hours of viewing time, which can really help when you're lacking place to charge your iPad.

The PowerBack isn't just a pretty case for iPad either; it's also a functional protective housing. A hard-plastic shell with a soft-touch finish gives your device protection from bumps, scratches, and short drops. The case also has built in "speaker defiectors." These expertly located ports will boost your sound output and help to give you a crisper and clearer tone when watching films on iPad.

The Kensington PowerBack will cost you around $79.99, but it's definitely worth it for all the features you are getting.

iHome 1HM6OGT Rechargeable Mini Speaker to watch movies on iPad or iPhone

Headphones work great when you're watching a movie privately, but what if you're trying to watch a movie with someone else? Your iPad or iPhone already has some pretty decent speakers, but sometimes they just don't go "loud enough" for you to easily hear a movie. You can always do the "dual" headphone thing, but that can be a complicated tangle of messy cords and extra hook-ups. There is a much easier way to achieve a solid sound that everyone can hear. The solution comes in the form of the iHome iHM6OGT Rechargeable Mini Speaker for iPhone and iPad.

This "palm-sized" speaker may look small but it boasts a very loud tone. It hooks in easily to any of your iPad or iPhone via a 35mm jack that plugs directly into the headphone port. The accordion-style of this speaker holds the key to increasing or decreasing the volume. You simply stretch it open. The further open the product is, the louder the sound will be. This keeps you from having to mess with annoying volume controls, and it also keeps the speaker compact enough to carry around in most pockets and bags.

At only $17.88 from, this tiny speaker will give you all the sound you need for a very low price point. One speaker can be purchased and hooked in to give you a boosted sound, but if you're looking for a more "theater" like experience, you might want to consider purchasing two. You can hook both of them into the same headphone jack with a special 35mm splice.

MicroVision SHOWWX+ Laser Pico Projector for iPad and iPhone

Let's be honest, it's hard to really enjoy a film when you're trying to watch it on a small screen. Viewing videos on the iPad can be enough, but watching something on an iPhone or iPad can be a pretty lackluster experience. There is a solution to this screen problem, but it may not be for everyone, and it might end up costing you a pretty penny. I'm talking about the MicroVision SHOWWX+ Laser Pico Projector.

This miniature device plugs directly into the power-port of your iOS device via a specialized USB cable. Once hooked in and "turned on" the device will display a projected screen of up to 100 total inches in size. This projection can be displayed virtually anywhere but works best if you have a solid colored wall. You'll need a large, flat surface in order to get the best use out of this product. But if you have the right conditions, you'll end up with an almost movie-quality setting.

This will allow you to display a film from iPad or iPhone to large group of individuals, or can just give you a nice big screen for private viewing. The downside is that the MicroVision SHOWWX+ Laser Pico Projector will probably end up setting you back a bit. The mini-product costs around 300.00 USD, which can be quite a large purchase for some of this. It may take a little bit of saving to get your hands on one of these little guys, but it's very much worth it in the long run.

So there you have it. It is completely plausible to get an enjoyable experience from watching films on your iPad or iPhone. With all of the movie viewing options and accessories on the market right now, it won't be hard for you to set your device up for maximum viewing pleasure. Most of these things won't set you back any more than a movie ticket or a giant tub of popcorn. In fact, you'll probably save so much money that you'll end up preferring to use your iOS devices for all of your "on-the go" movie viewing needs.
