View Full Version : [iPad Mini] Alternatives to Apple Smart Cover? (iPad mini)

Dec 30, 2012, 12:52 PM
Apologies for starting another iPad mini cover/case thread but I couldn't find what I was looking for in existing threads.

There are plenty of cases for iPad mini that combine front and back cover. The Invellop one seems to be a favourite. But I'd like the front cover to be detachable. For instance around the house I wouldn't need the front cover on it but when leaving the house I'd put it on.

There are also plenty of good back-only cases, some of which are compatible with Apple Smart Cover. But the Apple Smart Cover is generally seen as overpriced, and plenty of people have complaints about it (doesn't stay flat on the front).

So: does anyone know of any detachable front covers for iPad mini that could be an alternative to Apple Smart Cover?

I found the Macally Shellstand:

but it seems pretty rickety.
