Apple must have changed the location of the magnets in the new iPad because the Yoobao case no longer turns the display off when closed. Booo.

Yoobao carries what now....137.4 cases? Care to be a little more specific about which particular Yoobao case you are testing?

Thanks for clarifying.

Well that's good to know that it at least fits. I have a couple of those left from my batch of iPad 2's. Not that great of a case but it will do until the market comes up with something I actually want to spend $$ on. Still holding out for a redesigned Mag Snap from Incase.

My iPad and Yoobao Executive Leather case work perfect. Turns the display on/off with the cover and the cut outs line up nicely.

I have a red and brown Yoobao case. They line up perfectly. However, the red case smart feature doesn't work, only the brown. Strange...

Mine works perfectly for the magnet.
Make sure you push your iPad all the way into the case

Yep, my yoobao folio works just great, even though it is now a year old! Sleep/wake function is triggered.:) considering the great price of this case, I might just order a spare when the new colors become available.

I now prefer the yoobao 'islim; style, hard shell leather back with minimal front clips, ike my icarer. I'd love a 3 fold front with tuck away stand. magnetic closure. side coverage and slim. not a big fan of the smart cover triangle fronts.
so many cases I see on here I don;t like, that Tuxedo style, with no side or back coverage from dirt or knocks, not for me. it looks like an open sandwich, rather go nakee or skins or just a smart cover.

Does the iSlim have 3 or 4 folds? Some cases, like the macally, with just 3 folds, are reported to be unstable. How do you find the iSlim?
I totally agree with you on the side protection!

Oh! I just noticed I replied to you here as well:

I had the islim last year but returned it, not sure why, probably cause I had more shoppin to do! it had the smart cover fold front, I prefer the iPad1 Apple type fold,. fold over tuck in.
islim back and icarer back, very similar, with quality rubber bumper, inlaid leatha.
we need standard terms for these features - maybe there are, I've been away from case talk. I know exactly what I want, I think Yoobao, icarer with No tongue!, or others will make it.

and hi, Lauren, people, she knows a good case when she sees it. I forget the threads I;m in and lose track of you, its just a whilrlwind I tell ya. happy huntin!

I just received the new iPad yoobao from *******. I can't put my finger on it, but something about the leather doesn't seem like.... Leather but synthetic. I've had 4 yoobaos over the past year and none of them feel like this. It's not soft and supple like real leather. Has anyone had issues with ******* before? Thanks

Where did you order the Yoobao for the new iPad? How much did it cost you? I've been waiting for the Yoobao for the new iPad.

I've ordered from the person I think you are bleeping out and had good service, but there was a spam war here for awhile so I think that's now a verboten subject.

At any rate, Yoobao quality is hit or miss. Last year I bought their first release of the iPad 2 cases and that first batch was stiff and really smelly. Its that bicast leather stuff, otherwise known as PU leather, and its like calling KFC in a bucket "gourmet chicken recipe." The later versions they released (after fixing some early issues) were better quality and showed that they weren't a rush order out the door to make the early release deadlines.

I'm not sure I'd buy another Yoobao product, and if I did, I'd certainly wait a few months for them to do a normal production run. You seem to get better goods that way.

Regarding no sleep wake with These cases made for the iPad 2, I've found a quick fix. With an exacto knife, locate and cut a 3 sided square surrounding the magnet and feel back the fabric. Pull the magnet out, flip it over, and place back in its hole. Use a light coating of glue to adhere the fabric back to the plastic underneath... And working sleep wake for iPad 3 in less than 5 minutes.

I ordered from ******* and am not very pleased with the quality. The iPad 2 yoobao I ordered from amazon originally is much better quality sans sleep/wake which I just fixed. The ******* version is going back after less than 10 minutes of use.

I think the quality of the case depends more on the "version" build, rather than the reseller. My red Yoobao, which I bought from him for my iPad 2, still looks like new, and it's almost a year old.

never an issue he is a direct seller for Yoobao and always has their cases before anyone else in the US at least.

I agree. His customer support has always been great. I have been buying cases from him since my iPad 1. :)

I thought they weren't released yet?! most of the "new ipad" yoobao cases say they aren't out until the end of this month or currently just being shipped
