Smart case

Is the Apple ipad smart case any good? What about the invision smart case?

I love my smart case. I loved the idea of a stand, but didn't feel safe with just going with the cover. The only problem I have is keeping it clean because I use it so much. And the fact that it's a genuine apple product helps as well

Is it flimsy as people have suggested? And does it protect the ipad well? Many people seem to recommend the invision case over it.

I don't find it flimsy at all. It's really difficult to get on because it fits the ipad so snug. And I leave it in my book sack with no worries. The folding stand works really well for typing and having the ipad tilted up. I'm not familiar with the invision, but my girlfriend had the speck pixelskin, and that's a definite no buy.

I don't find it flimsy at all either. I love it because it saved me from trying to find that perfect match with a Smart Cover.

I opted to go with the Smart Cover + Incase Magnetic Snap Case. It gives you all the normal viewing angles you get with a smart cover or smart case but it has some extra features. It has 2 magnets on the back part of the case, one magnet allows the smart cover to just stick to the back of your iPad so it isn't flailing around while you are using it, and the second magnet gives you another viewing angle (~35 degrees) in addition to the standard two viewing angles you can achieve with the smart cover or smart case. I find the new viewing angle to be extremely useful, I use it the most of all three, it's good for typing and viewing. Also, I like the hardshell of the Incase Magnetic Snap Case - very sturdy and sleek. Only downside is the price of both.

I like my smart case. I also have a joy factory case which is good but my kids don't like that because rear plastic cover causes the buttons to be too recessed, so the smart case is what I use

I used the smart case with my iPad 3 and loved it. Wish they would make one for the mini..
