Latest ipad cases blogs
I get to try out a lot of cases for my iPad 2 and new iPad, but it's rare to find a case that protects the screen while in use, but doesn't add a ton of bulk. The Leisure Case from M-Edge is unique in that it is a rigid fabric shell that the iPad 2 or new iPad zips into, and has a clear cover that lets you use the touchscreen. In fact, I'm typing this review while my iPad is in the Leisure Jacket case!
The X-Doria Sleeve Stand is a zippered pouch for the iPad (all models) that also incorporates a built in stand via tabs at the opening. I was on vacation last week and brought this with me. I was going to bring my iPad in the Proporta’s sleeve I have been using and also bring Arkon’s foldable tablet stand with me. I received this unit a few days before I left so I used this instead because it incorporated both accessories into one.
It’s a thicker sleeve that is very well padded. Inside are little padded bumps. To and from vacation, I stowed this away in some luggage I had knowing that the padding would protect my device.
There's never a shortage of Apple-related headlines these days! Here's a brief look at a few stories that have caught my attention and which I wanted to share with all of you!
Don't let the water stop you!
With the launch of the new iPad (aka iPad 3), comes more cool cases and accessories. Speck (maker of my favorite Candyshell case) just came out with a full line of new iPad 3 (compatible with iPad 2) cases. Below are pictures of them with links to their product pages. Thanks to Speck, I got to send most of these cases into my local wild where other iPad users will be using them. In the coming weeks, I will share some of the mini reviews by these people that used these cases.
I dropped my iPhone the other day. Needless to say, I didn't like it. It seemed to happen in slow motion. Sure, iCloud would have a backup of most of my data but, as an app developer, even a day or two's loss of use of my iPhone would be difficult, and expensive.

Thanks to Apple's secrecy, when they Introduce a new gadget, case makers have to scramble to make accessories that fit it properly. The new iPad is a perfect example, yet Gumdrop
was able to create and ship their ruggedized Gumdrop Drop Tech case
rather quickly. In fact,while the case I received fit my new iPad perfectly, though the package it shipped in still said iPad 2, but it had a sticker indicating support for the new iPad.
The folks at Ten One
have been making iOS accessories since the early days, with their Pogo stylus, but their latest creation is something quite unique. Suppose you want to keep your iPad naked, without a case, and you want to prop it up,with a stand. Most stands are obtrusive and take away from the iPad's sleek look. Not the Magnus
. It is a slick chunk of aluminum with a few pads for protection, and some hidden magnets, like Apple's SmartCover. This allows the iPad to magically 'stick' to the stand, although it must do so in exactly one configuration, landscape with the dock connector on the right.
