I’ve kept my iPad mini in my HandyShell case from Speck since last year. I love that case. That didn’t mean I couldn’t find a little love in my heart for ShowFolio, though! This case comes with a magnetic cover that protects the screen when closed and acts as a stand when opened. (Think Smart Cover.) But where the ShowFolio turns super amazing is when you use the fold away hooks. Just pop them out and attach to the head rest in your car. Suddenly you have an entertainment center.
Let’s face it-I wanted the ShowFolio case for my nieces. They use my iPad more than I ever could. The co-molded frame means they’ll have to work pretty hard to damage it. The hooks mean they can watch movies and play games without having to worry about dropping it along the way. (I don’t know how many times I’ve had to lean back and pick it up off the floor while we’re at a traffic light.) I’m flying cross country next week and I’m already trying to figure out in my head if there’s a way to use the hooks for viewing my iPad without having to put down my tray table. If it works, I’ll be sure to snap a picture and report back!
