    I have it to bit the only downside is that it is not adjustable. I use:

    I still think that this is an area where Apple needs to copy and paste...

    Though you may hate the vendor or OS, that kickstand is pretty cool.

    Agreed. Some kind of a built-in stand is necessary at this point.

    I've reviewed these spider-like stands, and I haven't had any realistic good experiences with them. They are never perfectly symmetrical so you always have a wobble, and it takes too much time to just set it up and remove/place/remove/place when walking around the house.
    A traditional stand is easier, plus a lot use a smart magnet to keep things in place without having to snap anything in place. And they work in various stands, that picture for example is landscape, but in portrait the charge wire is pushing against the table and unbalances everything again.

    Not sure if this will hold the iPad Pro, think I will get a case with a stand built-in.

    Facehugger? You mean this? That's what it does look like to me. Once seen, can not be unseen. It looks too spidery to me. But it does look nicely adjustable.

    I like this one: it is lightweight, easy to adjust and easy to put up and fold down. Probably takes me less than a minute to set it up now that I have used it a few times.

    That Compass 2 stand is pretty friggin' cool. I like how stable it seems, that its made of metal w/ silicone covering the contact points, and that it collapses pretty nicely.

    Anything about this gadget I'm missing? Seems like a great piece of kit.

    What iPad are you using w/ it? I'm hopeful the 10.5 Pro is not too big for it.

    I am using the 9.7 pro right now....waiting for my 10.5 to arrive tomorrow. I don't think the 10.5 would have a problem but I will be able to confirm tomorrow.

    I want a kickstand case that isn't too bulky.
