How often do you take your smart cover off?
Whenever I use the iPad.
Maybe once a month, it's usually always on unless it comes off and then I put it back on
When I play Real Racing 2 HD. Other than that, it serves well to keep it on.
When i play a game that requires a lot of tilting I take it off.
I take it off when I am playing a game or watching a video in bed. Other than that I keep it on and use it as a stand.
At first I never took it off, but now I am taking it off a lot more. Does anyone notice any Scratches from taking it off frequently?
Its the reason I bought the smart cover. I really don't like covers, but use the smart cover as both a stand and to protect the screen. I take it off because its much lighter and thinner without it.
I have some white bandage tape that I stick to the side of the iPad where the smart cover sticks on. It is a strip that goes straight down the side. I think it works pretty well.
Are you able to see the tape while the smart cover is on?
Some of it, if you want just use a piece of clear scotch tape. But for the most part the back case I have covers it.
Many people don't understand that the cleaning properties require removal. The user is to pinch the metal between index and thumb and wipe oil with smart cover rolled up.
I'm not sure what you're trying to say
Cover is meant to be taken off every time u use the device.
Seriously? I figure the vast majority probably keep it on since you use it to stand or prop to type. Most of the time I have it in landscape, typing position on my lap.
I happen to have a case similar to smart cover with back attached. But You can take off cover if you want. It just doesn't use magnets.
I take it off virtually every time I use the iPad. Only if I pick it up to do something really quick (like to check notifications) do I leave it attached. Most of the time, I have the iPad supported by a Belkin LoungeView stand, and the cover just gets in the way.
I used my iPad 2 this way, and never had any wear or permanent marks (if that's what the OP is concerned with).
That's what i thought too. It also folds back and sticks to its self.
No not really just wondering.
Every time I use it, unless I need the smart cover to prop it up for video.
I've tried folding it round the back but it feels awful to me.
I like using all my devices naked.
*the device naked, not me
I never take it off unless it pops off, landscape or portrait. When playing all sorts of games, reading websites or watching something wherever I am, I just put the smart cover behind the iPad use it that way.
I find it very comfortable with it on and makes the iPad a little thicker to hold.
I took mine off my iPad 2 every time I used it for the 10 months I owned it. When I sold it last week, I noticed it had developed an ever-so-small scuff mark in a specific spot where the aluminium met. It was like a little mark where the aluminium had been polished from the contact. Had never noticed it until that final inspection. It was very minor. I'm guessing people's experience will depend on the frequency they take it on and off and the manufacturing tolerances of their particular unit.
I always keep it on, generally. I can always fold the cover down so it is comfortable, regardless of the position I hold it in. In the worst holding position for the cover, I will fold the cover down halfway, in the back. (It not only neatly folds the smart-cover close to the unit without making it want to flip back, but it also nicely exposes the rear camera lens if one wanted to take photos with it.) Very easy to hold that way.
So unless I want to give the smart cover a good cleaning, I tend to leave it on. My protective case I use also allows the cover to stay on.
Pretty much the same for me. I usually fold it in half behind the iPad so the microfiber is folded in on itself.
By Choice: Never
By Accident: Half the time I use it, Every time I slide it into a bag
It's locked in with the Smart Feather now, so only when I remove the feather to clean it. It doesn't bother me.
