    Hi there.

    I am a big fan of the ZooGue Binderpad for iPad, as it would be great for the way I use my iPad for textbooks at school as a student. I know Griffin also makes a case similar also for iPad.

    The problem however is that I have a mini, and the case is only made for iPad. Does anyone know/seen a case similar to it for the mini? And if so a link would be greatly appreciated :)

    Nope, no one. I've been looking at cases before the launch of the mini and I have yet to see anything like the Binderpad.

    Seems like it would be a very simple case to just make yourself.

    if I were to make one, I would start by buying a plastic ring binder. I would cut off one of the covers, and cut it into the size of a page in the binder I were to end up using. I would cut holes in it to fit the ring binder, and make sure it worked. I would then grab a cheap iPad mini back case from eBay (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1533605) and glue it to the plastic cover. I'd insert my iPad mini, and be done. Something like $5 worth of materials, and it would allow the use of the Smart Cover with the finished binder insert.

    I get what you mean now- and I'm gunna have a go at it. My only question is what glue would you be using to hold the case to the back?

    I have both black hot glue and black Sugru next to me, so I'd use one of those. If I didn't have either though I would just go out and buy something- preferably something strong like epoxy. Lots of surface area though so shouldn't be too hard to do

    Not sure what you are after exactly but is this any good from Booq?

    You might also consider thin double-sticky foam tape.

    I love the Binderpad too! I used it for my larger iPad. I have a mini now but it would be great if they had a Binderpad case for the smaller version.

    I am a teacher and occasionally I used the Binderpad with a 3 ring binder when going to training sessions. Hope they do indeed make it for the mini as well.
