What makes these cases so nice? They have a natural fibre exterior that not only has a good feel to it (good for holding onto your KIDS IPAD 4 CASE, but also just plain looks nice. TUAW received both the black and sand colored cases, and they both stand out from the crowd.
The cases include a folding front cover so that you can prop your iPad up in a variety of positions, and they also include the magnetic on/off capability that is common with most recent KIDS IPAD AIR CASE.
The Powis iCase ($79.95) is the case that unashamedly asks the question "what's your favorite position?" that's because it has a innovative design that offers "9+" viewing positions. The best feature, in my opinion, is that you can emblazon the exterior of the case with your very own photography. In the giveaway portion of this post, you'll get a chance to win a Powis iCase with one of my twilight photographs of Venice, Italy on the cover.
As the proud owner of my brand new shiny new “New iPad” (did I mention it was new?) I have recently spent a lot of time (way too much time) researching the vessel in which it will travel… Yes, much like people do not wander around in the buff, it seems that mobile devices must also be suitably ‘attired’ for a journey outside the home.
On this quest I have looked at every case Amazon has to offer (453,457 by last count) and run through every possible scenario my zippy little tablet will encounter. In the end I went for the ever-popular OtterBox Defender Series Case as it ticked every box for me, but what I did not expect to find was the huge number of iPad cases for kids. Not just your regular case with a picture of Elmo, these are designed from the ground up to engage, entice and endure play with children of all ages.
[UPDATE] Since upgrading to the iPad Air I have gone with the Snugg iPad Air (iPad 5) Case. It pretty much does everything!
Your iPad is held into the right side of the case in a plastic frame that securely holds your iPad in place. There's a large elastic band that serves to hold the case closed, and it's wide enough to also let you hold the case with the strap wrapped around your hand. As with the other iPad 2/3 cases, the Powis iCase has magnets embedded in the cover to automatically turn the device on and off.
As I noted before, the best feature has to be the ability to create a totally customized case with your own art or photography. That means that you can have a completely unique case. The printing process is flawless; I honestly have no idea how Powis makes money selling a custom case for only $79.95.
