As most of you know, I won an iPad Mini right around Christmas and boy have I enjoyed it since the day it arrived...wow! It came in extra handy when I went to New York a couple of weeks ago...it changed my entire travel life...well, really my entire life. It's a dream traveling with it anywhere - even if it's just to the coffee shop - because it's so lightweight and fits in my purse. Because I have a three-year-old (ok, and I'm clumsy), I had to go out and get a new case within days of receiving it. I bought pretty much the only thing they sold at Apple and had been using it up until I received this new one from Snugg this month. I really didn't think I would find anything better than I had (mostly because mini cases are hard to find)...but, oh let me tell you. This Snugg iPad Mini Case is better - gasp! Why?
*It's leather - I didn't necessarily have to have something leather, but it sure is much nicer now that I do. I can already tell it's going to be more durable than the former one I was using.
*It's thicker - Because it's leather, it's thicker and thus more supportive of the device. The iPad sits down in a secured Velcro pouch so it doesn't fall out or slide. Huge selling point here. My other was merely a magnetic "cover" that flapped off and on the screen.
*Cutouts - The case includes cutouts so there's never a need to remove it.
*It folds into a stand. This makes me soooo happy. I could never get my other one to cooperate as it should - it was just too flimsy. I feel like I could hand this to little C. more easily (well, possibly...haha).
This one's still magnetic just like my other one was, which means it activates sleep mode while it's close and turns the iPad back on when you open it. This basically extends the battery life - a good thing! The Snugg comes in 10 colors (I got bright orange because it's little C's fav color) and is on sale right now for just $29.99 (ahem, about $20 cheaper than you'll pay at the Apple store). Just saying...
P.S. These by Snugg come in all kinds of tablet sizes/versions - and even the iPhone case! So check and see which one you'll need. I'm sorta thinking of embellishing mine with a single heart. ;)
