The love the iPad mini. It’s a tremendous device and does so many things well. There are also many functions that are missing, and having them all built into one great case would be a great solution. The Snugg Leather Case and Flip Stand is just such a case.
Look and Feel
The case is made from a nice black polyurethane leather on the outside and nuback interior. It’s sculpted to a nice fit and looks great. It’s not overly thick and doesn’t made the iPad mini look insanely bulky, but at the same time there is enough to help protect the device. (more…)

I recently talked about how much I loved the Touchfire for keying on the iPad. I truly think it’s a remarkable accessory. That said, that doesn’t mean that Bluetooth Keyboard Cases are no longer a great option too. They are. They have a ton of uses. The latest I’m looking at comes from The Snugg, and while it’s not the top of the line, it didn’t perform too bad at all. (more…)

When unboxing the Aura for the iPad mini and snapping the device into place, the first thing one really notices about the case is how classy it is…with a beautiful brushed metallic look. This textured nylon is not only stylish but durable and moisture resistant too, leaving users with a comfortable and secure grip on the device. (more…)

One of the biggest joys of owning an iPad mini is the sleekness of the device. That doesn’t mean there isn’t a need for a case however, as we all use our devices differently. Some people don’t need a case as they generally use the device on the couch or bed for reading. In this situation leaving the iPad mini naked is just fine for most. However, if you take your device with you everywhere, in a bag or purse, perhaps you want to protect it while traveling. Perhaps you like watching video while in bed with the device on the nightstand. In this instance, a case that props up the device is a great addition. So there are plenty of uses that require people to house their device in a case of some kind.
Today I’m looking at the Domeo Recliner Mini Folio. How is it? In short, I’ve been impressed. (more…)

The iPad mini doesn’t demand a case the way the full-size iPad does. Not for me at least. There is something about the size and build that just begs to be left alone. However, that’s not always possible. Depending what you do, or who else uses the device, perhaps a case is in order. Maybe it’s a rugged one, perhaps it’s just a screen protector. Or maybe it’s somewhere in-between.
The lioncase Folio Shield for the iPad mini falls in the “in-between” category. (more…)

I recently reviewed the Cygnett WorkMate for iPad mini and for users looking to add a decent amount of protection to their device it is a pretty good choice. However, those just looking for a minimalistic approach to keep the back free of scratches, the FlexiGel is a better, and cheaper option.
The FlexiGel is a jelly-type case that snugly fits the iPad mini, and has all the necessary cutouts and port holes, so you’re not giving up anything in functionality by slapping this on your iPad mini. (more…)

The iPad mini is a crazy-thin device, and because of that I would hate to put anything on it for protection that adds too much bulk and takes away from the device itself. However, other people use their iPad minis in situations that demand greater protection, where a little added bulk is desired and needed. The Cygnett WorkMate for the iPad mini is a case that provides this bulk and protection but also the flexibility to still utilize the device as needed. (more…)

There are many reasons people like to put iPads in protective cases, more so than say a simple Smart Cover. Protection is the basic reasoning though, and if it’s protection you’re looking for, protection you will get with the OtterBox Defender Series Case for iPad. (more…)

One of the greatest things about buying Apple products is the vast amount of accessories available. Cases and sleeves in particular. Users have so many choices when it comes to how they carry or store their devices that no one is left out, regardless of style preferences or the needed functionality.
I was recently introduced to a very unique design-style for two cases, one for the MacBook Air, and one for the iPad. The designs are by Fu-design, and are beautiful, unique, high quality, and not for everyone…and that’s the point in my opinion. (more…)

The best thing about the iPad is that it becomes whatever the user wants it to become. For some that means it becomes a kid-friendly gaming and learning station…and perhaps they house it in a purple BigGrips Frame that screams “children use this”. For others it means the iPad becomes their workstation for their career at home and at the office, and they may want to keep their device in a luxurious leather case that screams “adult use only”. If you’re closer to the 2nd group of users described, the Spigen SGP Diary.S Series Leather iPad Case might just be for you. (more…)
