Choosing The Best IPad Covers And Cases
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

The best IPad covers and cases can be found in many places. There are brick and mortar stores that have these as part of their inventory. These typically have a salesman that is more concerned with pushing the latest gadgets and gizmos to make a nice commission. There are online retailers that will give you the features for their brand of IPad covers and cases. What are the options for IPad covers and Cases? This article will look at some of the types and available options can be purchased for your IPad.

There are three basic types of protection for your IPad. You can get a Silicone skin for a minimal investment. This will provide scratch resistance, give you a good surface to hold and keep your IPad from sliding off tables and other smooth surfaces. You can purchase a basic folio cover that will cover not only your IPad but usually has a mechanism for displaying your IPad at various angles. Finally, you can purchase a full blown cover or cover system for your IPad. If protecting your investment is your primary goal a cover is the way to go.

The Silicone IPad Skins are available from many retailers including Amazon. These come in many colors and styles. You can customize the look of your IPad by selecting various colors or designs. Most of these skins have cutouts to allow access to the ports and controls. Many allow you to charge the unit while still in the skin. This is not a recommended procedure as the battery will get warm while charging and the IPad case is designed to dissipate the heat. Plan on removing the skin for charging.

A Folio is a good choice to provide a bit more protection for your IPad. These IPad covers will give you a way to display your IPad on a desk or table in an upright or landscape orientation. Most are designed to make landscape the preferred orientation for showing videos or displaying pictures. There are cutouts in the side of every folio I have seen that provide access for the ports and controls. Some of the folios have a magnetic closure that holds the cover closed when not in use. I have experience problems with some of these causing the IPad to go into sleep mode due to interference of the magnet with the orientation pick-up on the IPad.

The full blown IPad covers that are available have features added that make your IPad safe and secure. There are hard plastic covers with nodes that allow for the attachment of accessories such as straps and stands. There are units that allow for the use of integrated keyboards, some are designed to protect the IPad from falls and are amazingly rugged. All you need to do is choose your style and the IPad accessories that you need and there is a cover that will fill the bill.

Where do you go if you just want to look at what is available and get an honest and unbiased opinion on the best IPad covers and cases out there to protect your investment and enhance the usability of your IPad? I have a review site that shows you some of the alternatives and gives you reviews on the various models and options. Follow this link to learn about the choices http://ipadcoverreview.com/
