    Hey fellow iPadders!

    Just attaching an image here for grip suggestions

    I hate cases and I don't like skins --- thus, I stuck some furniture pads on the bottom of my iPad and the grip is now EXCELLENT - much easier to hold and much more usable

    Granted, the furniture pads are on at all times, as they stick (I like it that way anyways) but these pads, in particular, come off very easily if you peel carefully - I got these furniture pads from Home Depot, and again, they're very easy to take off if you don't like them

    Also - I use a smartcover to stand the iPad up, and the pads don't get in the way of the smartcover at all - anyways - hope this is useful for some of you

    Peace and love all! :)

    Glad you like your solution!

    As for me, I find it too ugly :) I'd much rather use a skin, or actually, nothing at all!

    No apologies here

    If it was meant to be in a museum, it wouldn't have my fingerprints all over it folks...

    That said - everyone loves a man with a good 'grip'

    Well I think it is an awesome idea for improving the grippability of the iPad. I see this being a good choice for classrooms that have iPads (and even laptops).

    How could you mar the beauty of the iPad that way? That's just disgusting! If Steve Jobs saw that, he'd not only throw up in his mouth a little, he'd snatch the thing away from you -- you don't deserve to have a iPad at all if that's the way you treat it -- and he'd blacklist you from being ever able to purchase any Apple product anywhere in the world ever again.

    A case of "Function over Form"

    If it works for you. XD

    Can I at least suggest a ZAGG Invisible Shield for the back instead. ZAGG is tacky and gives excellent grip.

    This.


    I don't like cases, but I like sticking furniture pads all over the back of my iPad.


    Is this real life?

    hhhhhoookay. Well if it works, then good for you. BUT, I would suggest peeling them off and at least straightening the pads up, it looks like you just threw them on.

    I never feel comfortable using the ipad without some sort of case, I find I baby the damn thing. Once its in a decent case I can actually use it, without worrying. :rolleyes:

    I suppose if owning :apple: products hasn't turned you OCD we should really be congratulating you, and asking you the secret. :D
