This is a great iPad stand...

  • Oct 13, 2013

I like trying out different iPad covers and stands, always looking for that "perfect" solution. I haven't necessarily found a single cover/stand combo that is great in both areas (protection and hands-free display), but that's ok if separate solutions for each use are easy to use and switch between. I got the Native Union Authentic Gripster from the Amazon Vine review program to see how it would work as a stand. In short, it's outstanding (pun semi-intended)...

The iPad snaps into the casing with four corners that apply pressure to hold it in. I made sure to hold it over a soft surface as I turned it upside down, shook it a bit, etc. Everything held fast and stayed tight. The slots on the edges for ports/switches/buttons are lined up perfectly, and even the camera is usable with the opening lined up in the back of the case for it.

The main thing that sells the stand is the rotating handle on the back. It can be turned in a complete circle, and the grip portion goes the full 180 degrees between lying flat on the back to extending over the edge to use as a carrying handle. You can either use the handle to prop the iPad into any angle you could want, or you can slide your hand through it and use it while reading or watching a video. It feels great, it's comfortable, and it stays in whatever position you put it in.

The Gripster is probably the best iPad stand solution I've used. Furthermore, it's easy enough to snap on and off so that you can move the iPad to a case for protection if you're going to be carrying or packing it around. I'm very happy with the Gripster, and will be using it for a number of situations.
