View Full Version : Incase Convertible or Official Apple Case?

I'm so torn, I bought the official Apple case, the only part I like is the stand feature. I'm not thrilled with the way it feels and how sharp the edges are. I saw that the Incase Convertible Case has 3 different positions you can put it in too. I can't decide if I should take the Apple case back and exchange it for the Incase or not. How many of you go the Incase Convertible case? Thanks.

It's the only way to pad. No contest in materials, support, variable positions. Just back from the apple store and may learn to type on this after all. Even if takes some time now, it's worth the effort.

Read the reviews at the apple store online. You'll get your answer.

Via the Ipad. :cool:

The Incase looks better and seems to be of higher quality (not sure but just looking at the pics). It also seems to add a bit more cushion or padding. Personally if your not happy with the Apple just return it for the Incase. They have a good rep for making decent products.

The incase is way too fat and bulky, ruins the whole sleek appeal of the iPad plus its ugly IMO. Apple case all the way for me.

I am returning my "official" Apple case asap. It is horrible! I use the incase neoprene sleeve. Not sure about this whole stand thing. I like to hold my iPad.:D

I love the Apple case. The edges soften with use, and help to keep other things I'm carrying around with me from getting too close to the buttons and the place where you plug in the charging cable. I looked at a lot of cases at the Apple store, but I liked this one best and I'm still real happy with it.

I have the Apple case, but really do not like it. The sharp edges are awful. Perhaps I will not use a case after all. The iPad just feels so good to hold without having anything on it. My Apple case is definitely being returned.

I got the Apple case and I like it. Typing on it at that angle is so comfortable.

I found the Incase convertible to be way too bulky.

I'll probably pick up a cheap neoprene case too.

In the Apple Store, they had the Incase directly to the right of the Apple case. A salesperson helping someone was pushing the Apple case. I read about the Incase at Apple's online store. There are now about 10 comments on it.

There's a couple more nice features with the case. First the grip is very nice and it gives you some peace of mind. I was not comfortable handling the device without something with a better grip. Also there is a nice little two inch band on the back of the case you can slide your hand right into and keep the unit comfortably under control with one hand. The material itself is nice and softer to the touch than Apple's. It does have a thicker feel but it adds a sense of security. Not much is going to help this unit if you drop it though.

The Apple case is $20 cheaper. For many folks that's good enough but folks that have compared the two are going with the Incase.

It's extremely well thought out. I've now used it at two different locations and it was great to have the option of three different angles for viewing and typing. Would imagine it's going to also work quite well on a couch, in a bed and practically anywhere else. Another spot I will be using it is on the reader on top of my indoor bike. It sits up there perfectly in landscape and can also sit in portrait. Bet with the Incase, it will sit more balanced with less chance of a mishap. Bottom line, I had the naked iPad out in a park sitting on a bench. Nothing made me feel comfortable handling it. Now it's really easy to handle and set up to your choice. And that allows you to use it as intended.

The Apple Case may be a good, cheaper choice for folks who are less interested in the material, want a bit more thin outer shell but it lacks the features of the Incase albeit at a lower price.

I will be turning away the Fedex delivery tomorrow of the Apple Case. There's no reason to even accept it and inspect it vs. the Incase.

What the incase feels like is one of this pocket calendars people use to carry around with a snap shut button. It's about the same size and obviously heavier than a couple of inches of paper.

Would highly recommend folks check this out. No I'm not affiliated with Incase but have to say, right now there's no better choice if viewing/typing positions are an important consideration.

If not, then you have a ton of other options. I'm very happy though with the Incase, even at the $60 price tag. Would like to have seen it at $45 or $55 though. :rolleyes:

Hey you can't have everything but I find the options on positioning on this so good you will be able to use it more adeptly at just about everything. The glass on the iPad is so reflective you will want the multiple angles just to minimize that alone.

Enjoy.

I'm loving the apple case. It has a great 'grippy' feeling to it which makes dropping the iPad less likely (important if you have kids) and still maintains the sleek profile of the device.

I also bought the Incase Neoprene Sleeve Plus. I really like it, the inside is super soft. But with that being said I wanted a case that could be doubled as a stand. I'm not really worried about the bulkiness of the Incase Convertible case. I'll be using my iPad out of a case mostly but I want a case I can use when I want to type stuff or watch a movie. I think I'm gonna go the Apple store and check it out for myself.

How can the edges soften with use? You've only had it for two days? I've had mine since launch too. Apple's case is awful. The iPad is great, but their case is abysmal!

I've noticed the Apple case picks up dust and marks easily. The edges are softening up a bit. I'm still on the fence. It might be heading back to the store tomorrow.

The incase is to bulky for me. The Apple case looks to cheap. Although I like the thin profile and having the grip. I'm just being a pain in the a**!

I have the Apple case being delivered today and I'm not sure if I want to keep it after seeing Incase's version. The added bulk isn't great, however Incase does make good solid products. Hmm.... what to do.

Funny how people have such differing opinions. The Apple case really seems like one of those love it or hate it things. Personally, I love it, I think it's very well designed and feels great. As beautiful as the iPad is with it's aluminum back, I actually feel like it was made to live inside the Apple case. The last 2 days I was having a real problem trying to find ways to comfortably hold and carry my iPad, but this case make them both easy. I don't get the sharp edges argument. They are sharp-ish, but still feel entirely comfortable to me, not like they are cutting into my arms or anything.

I just watched a video of the Incase convertible (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mbv_KFXZpg8). a couple things that I don't like:

1) it is thick and looks bulky
2) folding the cover into angle positions does not lock in. In other words, when you hold the ipad, the angle position is disengaged and you have to adjust the position again. Apple case is locked in the angle position until you remove it.
3) cost more, $20 more


what I like:
1) you can tie the cover with the attached wrapping band.
2) leather looks better, though I did not see it in person.
3) video-watching position seems to stand more stable than apple case.

there are two diferences between these two cases:
1) one thing that people complain about the apple case's sharp edge. I think the edge provides good protection when falling and landing on the ipad corner. where as the incase convertable exposes the corner.

2) when setting on an angle position, the home button is on the right side using Incase and on left side using Apple case. I read someone complained that some games require home button on the right.

I've been torn on the case issue. Around the house I like it naked, it just seems nice to use that way. When taking it out and about a case is needed for various reasons.

I'm starting w/the Apple case and so far I like it. It works well and protects the iPad well and offers a few viewing options.

Even tho I like the Apple case I'm still going to be on the hunt for something a little better.

I'm sure soon we will see many more options. For now I do like the Apple case. The inocase is nice I just did not want to spend that much knowing I will be looking for new cases soon as more become available.

That case looks awesome and that's a great tip for $20 off! Thank you! I just hope they ship soon. Looks like right now they estimate May 1st as the date. Seems like forever...

I ordered the incase plus slip sleeve in silver to hold me over, it looks like a good case to use if you're gonna slip your ipad into another bag...

Yeah, their marketers should have said April 30 - it feels so much more do-able. It looks like a lot of the cooler cases have a lead time on them - it's get one to hold you over and then go for the one you want. :cool:

I've looked around at a lot of cases. I ordered the Apple Case early on, because I liked the functionality. But, I've now also ordered the Marware EcoVue. It seems to have all the advantages of InCase, plus a hand strap you can slide your hand into when it is open so you can sort of ware the case as a glove. This seems like it will be a comfortable when you need to hold it in one hand for extended periods. I will give my impressions when it arrives.

A lot of these manufacturers have just gotten their hands on the device and probably scrambling to get them ready.

But i'm guessing it will take a few days.

you stuck it in to lock ipad in. I agree that landscape stand is not sturdy at all.

if you lay on bed and want apple case to stand on your belly/chest, it is imposible. Incase is better since it provides the level foundation itself.

but I think I'll keep apple case since it is thin, cheaper, and hold ipad tight with no gap between screen and the case edge.

Oh! Silly me, so it's not supposed to flap about. I just tucked it in and all is well. This case is growing on me, I was having doubts. On a flat level surface, I have not worry about stability. Thank you my friend, much obliged!

I wasn't interested in the Apple Case one bit until I was in the store on Saturday. It has a really nice feel to it.

Setting it around the house, I feel much more comfortable with it in the case and the angle can come in handy.

I really like how it looks outside the case though and it wont dock when in the case so who knows... I'm torn. :)

Just put an order in for the Quirky Cloak. The $20 deal is awesome. I have both the Apple case and the Incase Convertible. Initially I was turned off by the Apple case, but after using the Incase, I've decided to keep the Apple case for now.

Here are some pictures of the cases:
http://picasaweb.google.com/adam.miarka/AppleIPadCaseVsIncaseConvertible?feat=directlink

The last pic does not have the iPad in the Apple case, but you can see the bulk difference of the two. Of note, I also didn't like the fact that the Incase does not lock into position and relys on the weight of the iPad. Has the potential to slip around. When holding it on my lap, the iPad would also slip down out of the case.

Can't wait for the Cloak to ship!

Thanks for posting those pics of the Incase convertible case. I am really leaning towards it. I kinda want to keep my Apple case but I've spent $39.99 on the Incase Neoprene Sleeve Plus, $39.99 on the Apple case and it'd be nuts to spend another $59.99 on the Incase convertible case. So my choice is either keep the Apple case or take it back along with the dock (I think I'm taking the dock back no matter what) and get the Incase convertible.

I have one important question about the Incase convertible, I know the different angles don't "lock" in like the official Apple case but are they stable enough to type without it falling down? I like angling the Apple case and setting it on my lap to type in Pages. Can I do that with the Incase and not have it collapse on me? Thanks.

If you gave the Incase set on a sturdy surface (table, desk, etc.), then you will be find to type. I was having issues with the angle moving as I type while sitting on the couch....as I'm doing now with the Apple case. :D

See I have the Apple case and I want the neoprene sleeve as a way to compliment it. I like the whole stand aspect of the Apple case and I also like the look of it. Looks sharp to me. Plus it gives the iPad a different feel when I'm taking it out. The neoprene sleeve is like when I just feel like jetting out the door and I need something to throw it in. Will probably include a microfiber cloth with that as well.

Just got the Incase and folks are overstating "issue" with it not locking into the options. In fact. While laying down the balance is so good you can park it on yourself not even in the official slot position and it remains stable. Breathe at will.

The design is very well done. The fit is tight but not too tight. I don't see it slipping out of the case either. (If it seemed even possible you can flip it over and that's that. As the iPad rotates, it's your choice.)

The Incase and stand choices stand alone. You wouldn't want or need a sleeve for it. It's an all in one solution. the usability of the iPad in this case really shines. I've even put it on my magazine rack on my indoor bike. It fits perfectly there in either landscape or portrait but landscape is best.

Hear many folks talking about returning the dock. Seems like a trend.

Hmm, I dunno, I guess the only way for me to find out if I like it is if I go to the Apple store and check it out for myself. Do you think if I take my iPad in with me they'll let me try out the case in the store before I buy it? If I do like it I need to return the Apple case so I'll either have to bring the Apple case in with me or leave it in my car while I check out the Incase convertible then run out and get it if I like the Incase more.

The dock just isn't as good as I was expecting, for one, I thought I'd be able to leave the Apple case on and still be able to use the dock (it is a chore getting the iPad out of the Apple case) and even when I put the iPad in the dock by itself, its kinda hard to get it out of the dock since there isn't really anywhere to grab to get leverage to pull it apart.

I can't stand cases.

I mean I get their purpose but they completely ruin the device for me. You have this beautiful pice of aluminum and glass and the you go cover it in a bully case...might as well the iPad was made of plastic, you wouldn't know the difference.

I can see it for holding up the device, I could use it for that but I could never use it full time.

I am looking at that Invishield product for the back of the iPad...has anyone ever used one? Is it almost 100% transparent?

Good workaround and an extra pillow should be available to grap.

But when it is hot, having a pillow on top is not very comforting

Originally bought the Apple case. Tried it out a couple of days and my iPad kept falling over in Landscape fold. I decided to get the incase case and it was sold out in 3 Apple stores. They said they can't keep them in stock. I called a 4th store and they said they just got some in because they sold out of the over the weekend. I love the multiple viewing positions and it is so sturdy, there's no way it's falling over like the Apple case did. I know it's bigger and more book-like, but I really like its functionality and faux leather feel. I also like how easily it fit into the case and it's easy to remove if I want to use a different less bulky case when I need to. Overall, this is the best case/stand I have seen.

So, thanks to who ever suggested this case because it's EXACTLY what I needed. :D

I don't know if you can compare the Apple and the Incase with the Griffin. The Griffin is a straight folio case that appears to offer no positioning for landscape or typing.

I'm sure there will be interest in these types of cases, but there will also be better options.

Happy Owl Studio will be offering 3 straight up folio cases http://www.happyowlstudio.com/.

Also, MEDGE, who makes popular cases for e-readers has some folio type cases coming out http://www.medgestore.com/products/ipad/.

If you want a straight up folio case with no alternate positioning then the Griffin may be a good buy, but there will be plenty of more quality options around the corner (IMO). However, none of these cases should be compared to the multiple position cases like the Apple case, Incase convertible, quirky, Macally BookStand, etc.

The Macally BookStand to me seems like the nicest looking multiple position case:

http://www.macally.com/EN/Product/ArticleShow.asp?ArticleID=320

I just wish I could see it in person to see exactly how thick it is, and how well it holds the ipad when you position it. Anyone have one of these yet?

I also don't like these case manufacturers charging close to $50 for a case. I think $20-30 range would be a better price point.

I had a bookstand order in, but cancelled it. I main reasons for cancelling it is because I saw that the Europe store had black, and other sites (i.e, MacMall and Provantage) were selling it for cheaper ($33-$38). I still think its a nice case, but the cheaper prices, plus Macally's expensive shipping ($8) made me think again.

I recently bought the Incase Convertible Book Jacket & the Apple Case and I have to say that Incase wins IMO. They both are great cases and it really comes down to personal opinion on which is better. The two negatives about the Incase is that it's more expensive & bulkier than the Apple case. The Incase just leaves me feeling that my iPad will be protected and the bonus is the different viewing angles. I've got videos of both case on my YouTube Channel if you want an up close look at both of them.

Hey ram8727, I did see your reviews on both the cases. Very nice and glad you did it especially since there are so few comparisons online right now. I did pick up the incase one, but that is mainly cause it is the only one I could get as the Apple case has been out of stock at all of the apple stores near me.

While I like the Incase one, I am having some problems with it that might make me have to return it. They are the same issues that all the other people have complained about. (iPad slipping out slightly so that the ports don't line up and not being able to use the last position without the thing slipping down out of the slot after a few seconds). I keep hoping that it will stretch out more so that maybe the thing would at least not slip out and have the ports get un-aligned, but so far that has not happened.

Go for the quirky.com cloak!

If you sign up (needed to place an order), in a day or two you get the option to take a survey. Taking the survey puts a $20 credit on your account = affordable cloak.

I signed up, participated in evaluations, but never got a credit. Anyone have a credit they want to share or know how i can get one of my own? :)

Hi there,

Just a quick question.

I've heard a couple of people saying that the iPad is hard to get out of the Apple Case. This would be quite a big setback because I'm planning to do work on my iPad at school and I need to be able to get my equipment out quickly.

Do other people with the Apple Case have the same problem?

The apple case is very difficult to remove.

My GF went to the Apple Store today to pick up a case for our iPad. I told her to make sure she got the Apple case.

She came back with an "Incase Protective Cover for iPad" and says the people at the Apple Store said there is no Apple branded case and that this is in fact the "official Apple iPad case".

After looking around, obviously they were completely full of ****.

I really hate having my (our) time wasted :mad:
