Apple iPad Smart Cover
Advantages: Slimline design, folding mechanism, magnetic attachment
Having bought my brand spanking new iPad the first thought that came to mind was protecting the screen! As I have a great tendency to scratch new things pretty much instantly, I set about looking for a cover/case suitable. I started by looking online and after trawling through numerous cases and covers by other well-known brands such as Belkin etc. I found my way once again to the apple website where I came across the Smart Cover. This seemed to fit the bill for me as I knew I didn't want a hard shell cover for my iPad and could not find a quality and affordable silicone cover anywhere. I took the plunge and bought one from my nearest apple shop. I can honestly say I am so glad I did! This is a superb product that I couldn't be without now. The cover fits perfectly in place thanks to its ingenious magnetic strip designed to attach the cover to the side of the iPad with ease. I was a bit worried about this as other reviews I read mentioned the cover slipping off, but no such problems were had by me. As long as the cover is correctly positioned, the cover will stay in place no matter what. Another great feature is the sleep/wake function. When the cover is removed, the iPad wakes up and also when you put the cover back on it sleeps and locks the iPad (great for people like me who are forgetful and don't want to end up coming back to an iPad with no battery!). The cover is easily maintained with a slightly damp soft cloth and if particularly resilient, it should not become scratched and marks will come off with ease. I chose the plain grey cover and it looks extremely stylish and protects the screen from scratches like nothing else. The inside of the cover acts as a duster for the screen also, with its soft texture picking up dust and bits of dirt from the screen so every time you shut the cover, your iPad gets a mini valet too!
Yet another great feature of the Smart Cover is the folding mechanism, the cover is divided into four sections with vertical grooves which allows it to be folded in a pyramid fashion to product two different effects. I find the position they recommend for typing very useful as it allows you to type faster as you would on a traditional keyboard. The second more elevated position is also great for displaying pictures or using Facetime. With regards to price, I initially thought it was a bit much but after shopping around found not too many other iPad covers that offered what I was looking for at a cheaper price. After having this cover for nearly two months I would definitely say it is worth the money and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone or buy another one!
Summary: Superb product, highly recommended for anyone who is looking for a less bulky cover for their iPad
