Case arrived last night and I can say my search is over for a case. Devicewear does it every time for me. Perfect fit, perfect cutouts, and really good quality for a folio case. I've retired from reviewing lol but rest assure this case is def worth the $29.99 with free shipping.

Here are some pics, enjoy

the case is nice...as I had one for all my previous ipad's. However, this one for iPad pro didn't work so well.

When you fold the case to the typing position, the crease is firm and so the cover itself won't flap flat there's a slight curve so it won't lay flat on the screen. Maybe the crease will loosen up but I didn't want to deal with it right now. So going back to smart cover from apple, it's expensive but quality is unmatched.

Not having any of those your talking about. Plus typing angles work just fine with no flap issues.

Neither am I. Mine lies almost perfectly flat on the screen. I guess it sits up ever so slightly by the 'hinge' area, but it's so miniscule it's a non issue. Lightweight, cut outs are perfect at all speaker locations and all button locations. For the money, not much else at the moment on the market for iPad pro that's better.

Any cracking of the corners on the Ridge case with the IPP?

Devicewear has actually done a fantastic thing in how this case snaps onto the iPad. If you look at the above pics carefully, you'll see that the back cover doesn't snap onto the corners like most cases. It snaps on around the edges of the iPad instead, which prevents the stress on the corners that most other cases have. So this case is more likely than others to NOT have the corners crack.

Wow, didn't notice that.

I had one on my Mini 4 and it covered the corners and it cracked away at 3 of the 4 corners.

Be interesting to see how they design the new one for the Little Pro.

I just wanted to comment that I've had this case now for a couple weeks and think it's absolutely fantastic. Slimmer than I expected. Great stand positions which even work well in your lap. The only place for improvement would be a more secure way to keep the cover open in "book mode." Thats just a little nitpick, though.

I have had this case on my iPad 3, 4 and Air and absolutely loved it. I got it for my 9.7 Pro yesterday and was very disappointed. Yes, the pencil ridges are annoying and cause the iPad to wobble a little but the biggest issue is with the cover magnets. The cover magnets are crazy weak and the cover would keep opening. I had no issues with the magnets on any of the other version I had. It almost make me think maybe they put the magnets in the wrong location?

That's unfortunate to hear. Definitely contact their customer service and see what they have to say.

I sent their customer service a message this morning. I will post the response.

Customer service was quick to respond. I sent them a video showing the magnet issue. They have tested a case with their iPad Pro and are sending me a replacement. I am very impressed with their customer service!
I'll post back when it arrives.
