Magnetic back case

    Does anyone know of any cases that have a magnet on the back so when you fold the smart cover back it sticks?

    The Belkin Snap Shield Secure has a metal piece on the back for this purpose, and it works well. Don't think it is (or needs to be) an active magnet.

    So you'd recommend the case? I'm rockin a belkin on my iPhone and love it so probably a good choice.

    Yeah, I like it. I'm using a 2nd Gen Shield on my 3rd Gen iPad and it works reasonably well, with only the slightest fit difference indicating that it's not fully purpose-built. Other threads here have more details on that.

    That said, I've cracked a corner on it already, probably from the extra thickness plus stress of removing/replacing it. You may want to hold out for the properly fitted one the person above me linked.
