This is so cool...

  • Jul 2, 2011

One of the things I often use my iPad for is to watch videos. But I've yet to find a stand that works well for propping up the iPad in various positions, such as on the desk or on my chest while I'm stretched out on the couch. When Amazon Vine offered me the Joby Gorillamobile Yogi for iPad, I figured it was worth a try. I've seen the ones for the iPhone, and they looked interesting. After having used it for a couple of weeks, I can say this stand is WAY cool. As far as I'm concerned, this is now part of my iPad. It won't be coming off anytime soon.

The white protective case that attaches onto the back of the iPad does a good job. The edge is set up well to allow exposure to the side controls without much difficulty. Although the screen is not protected, I have no doubt that a drop on the back or edge of my iPad would not even be noticed if I'm using the case.

The selling point on this is obviously the multi-positional legs. They attach to the back of the case using one of the slotted tabs on each side, so you're not restricted to just a portrait or landscape viewing angle. The cool part is that the legs are a series of small round sections that can move, swivel, and stick in various angles. You could stretch them out straight and use them as a traditional stand. You could curl one slightly if you're on an uneven surface to get the iPad to stand up level. You can put them together and pull them slightly away from the case to use as a handle to hold the iPad (I do that often when watching a video). You can even wrap it around a horizontal bar if you wanted to let your iPad hang down from something (like a paper towel holder in the kitchen while watching a cooking show). The variations are endless, and it's what makes this something that I absolutely love using.

There's something to be said for having a stand as part of a case that completely covers and protects your iPad. But if you're just looking for something to use as a stand in a non-travel situation, or if you're wanting to place the iPad in an unusual position, the Joby Gorillamobile Yogi should definitely be on your list for consideration. I love mine...
