There are lots of stands and mounts for iPads, but Tablift is different. The independent adjustable feet make Tablift steady on any surface, and they fold away for easy portability. Tablift works for everything from typing and reading, to watching movies in bed at the end of a long day.
Steve Jobs wasn't a fan of the stylus, but for plenty of iPad users, a stylus helps get things done. The only problem is remembering to bring your stylus with you. The Motive Stylus aims to fix that with a six-sided stylus loaded with magnets that unrolls flat, and hitches a ride on your iPad's Smart Cover.
Tablets are great for presentations and videos, but when you're sharing with a group, sound can be a problem. SoundJaw Unlimited clips to your iPad, and boosts the volume by directing more of the sound towards you. It's simple and compact—and the new Unlimited version also works with Kindles and other tablet devices of varying sizes.
The Origami Slate is like a Smart Cover, only smarter. It features front and back protection for your iPad, and has embedded magnets to preserve the sleep and wake features. Thanks to an innovative design, the cover folds into a number of configurations to offer more viewing angles than Apple's standard cover.
For an even simpler option, the Smarter Stand is a pair of plastic clips that work with your existing Smart Cover or Smart Case from Apple. Clipping the Smarter Stand over the cover's folds give you more options for viewing angles, including a 45-degree pitch that's perfect for presenting to a small group with your iPad.
