Put mine up on eBay today, if any FUKers want to make an offer PM me before Friday so I have time to end the auction if I am selling to you.

it's jacket pocket friendly, really want one for that purpose means I can ditch the bag but waiting for the higher rez model, must be next thing for release?.

Been using a neoprene jacket up 'til now but after a couple of close dropsies recently, I invested in a cheap alternative to the Apple Smart Case. Got it from Amazon, the Invision Smart Case Cover £12.99 plus P&P…




Never had a case on my iPhone let alone the iPad so first impressions are that it adds a bit of weight but as far as protection is concerned, it seems like it's gonna do the job.

I won one of these on ebay (£1.70) and I have to say it's a fantastic slim, lightweight case which feels good quality.

Like this but in black. The case has a rubberised feel to it but it feels tactile.

There's a Cote et Ciel sale starting on Friday on Secret Sale, may be a load of old shite though.

I got an iPad 3 a month or so ago to help with my organisation. I use informant pro as an organiser for my time and my business, it's really comprehensive. Has a full diary, tasks section, notes section, contacts, reminders e.t.c. It links together really well too.

Bit pricey at £10.49 though.

Anyone know a good portfolio app?

Could someone with a Smart Case tell me how thick it is in millimetres (ie how much thickness it adds to the iPad when closed), and how "sticky" the material is please?

It's relatively urgent!

Thanks in advance!

Ipad 2 with a smart case on (the full coverage one) is 14.5mm x 253mm x 220mm
Not really sure how to qualify sticky, grippier than the ipad itself but not sticky enough to stop you putting it in another case if that helps?

FWIW TK Maxx have these Built hard cases for £4 atm:
Don't know how it works but it feels so much nicer to told than a caseless ipad.

Thanks generic_guy (are you staying?).

It's actually the Smart Case (with just the front cover, not the one with the back cover) that I need the thickness of.

My girlfriend is making a textile case to fit over an iPad mini that will have a Smart Case on it.

Yes you can but it's kind of a workaround.

The way I do it is by having a membership to put.io ($4.99 per month) which allows you to download torrents to their cloud storage without the need for software. Once you have downloaded the torrents you want you can then use an app such as iDownloader to download them from put.io straight to your ipad.
