Voice Dictation for taking notes....wow, have they invented a mind-reading app so I don't have to talk out loud during meetings and conferences? What a great concept! ;-)

Regarding the stylus, that's exactly what I do to help alleviate the flap construction issue. But since I tend to write/sketch on my iPad with said stylus, I now carry TWO with me everywhere. One for using, one to fix the stupid design flaw of the Vuscape.
I see that we are both on the same page regarding the Vuscape and stylus. Is that a bambo stylus? If so how do you like it. I'm considering returning my 3 in 1 because the cap is starting to spin when I use it as a stylus.

I am quite liking the versavue, using the iPad 2 version on the iPad 3 and it fits very snugly. $70 is a bit on the high side but it does offer very good peace of mind.

If I would have know that the iPad 2 Versavue would of fit the new iPad, I may have chosen that case. Does the magnet work for on/off?

The wife bought something called a "Temium Smartfolio" for our iPad 2.

Rubberised back with a flip in the style of the Smart Cover (complete with magnets). We wanted something that would protect the rear and corner edges as our daughter will be using it a lot.

There's a dedicated Versavue for the iPad 3. Its chunky and the rotation mechanism isnt great. Its clunky and doesnt lock in place. Buy the Vuscape or from a different manufacturer if you need the rotation.

The new iPad Versavue cases at my local Bestbuy's have defective magnets....other than that the Versavue is awesome. For general purpose I prefer my Vuscape. There are times where the extra bulk of the Versavue for protection would be nice. I'll probably get a Versavue as well once they solve the magnet problem.

  • Have a slim form
  • Must not be heavy in weight
  • Leave the bezel exposed
  • Material that can be easily cleaned
  • Must have a stable and secure typing position
  • Magnets that sleep and awake the iPad but don't do it when held against the back
  • 30 Pin port opening big enough to support the Camera Adapter
  • Open speaker so not to muffle the sound

This Griffin Intellicase does all of the above. I know others have passed on it due to it being too lightweight without enough protection but for me it just works. I originally purchased this in black for the iPad 2 and it fit but very tight. The new version fits perfectly and the outside has more of a texture to it. It also comes in various colors. I have it in white and have also ordered the red.

It is definitely a minimalistic case without much protection but for me, I don't need a lot of protection. When out and about I use the STM Scout bag for additional protection. My two top "must haves" were a slim/light form and secure typing position. This case scores tops in both. The material is also TPU and even the white, wipes clean with a little glass cleaner and microfiber cloth. the magnets are perfect. Strong enough so that the cover doesn't squish around and turn on and off, but not so strong to turn off the iPad when folded on the back side.

Love this case!
I like cases like this. Super slim, protects the back, and matches front cover that also acts like a smart cover.

When are more cases going to be available? I'm dying to get a new one that perfectly fits my new iPad.

I'm looking for something similar to what you've listed. I want something slim, tone on tone stitching (so if it's a black case, I want black stitching, not white), must cover both back and front, etc. I want it to be really "simple". Something nice and sleek. No logos. Unfortunately I cannot find one, thus I don't own an iPad yet. I want to find the perfect case before I purchase my iPad.

Are you serious? You are waiting to buy an iPad bc you didn't find the perfect case yet?? Lol I think that might be more OCD than those in search of the perfect screen on the new iPad Jk lol

No problems so far with the Prime but I haven't tested GPS yet (I doubt I'll use it to be honest! ))
I have one of the "C30" serial number models which supposedly has had a few internal fixes but I can't compare it to the older models at all as this is my first Prime.

This is my "case" and probably won't change. I had the Belkin Snap Shield but I didn't like the feel when I was holding it. The iPad felt bulky. I got these from stickerb0y. Already had the red smart cover, went for black since the shades of red do not match.

My security system when using the iPad for work:

- leather smart cover from Apple

- Targus Hughes leather case

Might get this for more casual usage:

Well, it definitely fit mine (I actually tried it right at the store), but Iíve heard a few folks say it was too tight. I guess thereís enough variation in the case that most fit an iPad 3rd gen, but YMMV.

For the last year I was using just the pink smart cover with a matching back. I've now passed that on to my daughter (she just bought her own iPad2)

Currently my iPad2 is happily ensconced in a pink ZAGGfolio. Love it!

Has anyone tried a silicone glove? I've been using these with my smartphones for years. The keep the device scratch resistant, grippy and are thin and light. I bought a crappy one for the iPad 3 that turned out to be too loose but I ditched it for a proper case. These are still very cheap and highly recommended. I just wonder if anyone is using one?
