    Got the new Yoobao Executive case for the New iPad. Overall fit and finish is very nice, no strong strange smell like the old first gen Yoobao. This one actually smells like real leather. Yes wake/sleep function works.

    I'm looking out for a yellow one (per my currently running "looking for a yellow smart cover" thread). Could you say where you bought/ordered yours from?

    edit: Oh, I just noticed the sticker on the box. ;)

    Is the leather soft/supple like then yoobao for iPad 2? I ordered one from that seller a couple weeks ago, before he supposedly sold out. The leather is hard and feels like synthetic. It's way too tight, so tight the flap won't even flip around to the back side. If you feel like the leather is the same quality as the 3rd revision yoobao for the iPad 2 I might reorder, these yoobao's are my absolute favorite cases, just not impressed with the previous model kev sent me.
    Thanks

    Yellow Yoobao - they never had this color before:



    I'm trying to make up my mind between the Coffee and the Rose. I really love these cases, had a red one for my iPad 2.

    Can you fold the front cover back, so that it lies flat against the back of the Ipad? I can do this with my old case, and really want this option in the new one - for when I am reading books.

    I bought the yoobao in red and I absolutely love it! The leather is soft but it sets very firmly on my lap when I'm on my iPad and watching tv at the same time. The sleep/wake function works and I like how it doesnt completley cover my beautiful white bezel. And yes, you can fold the front cover back flat. It's really a nice case for the money. I'm going to get the orange and the yellow ones next!

    So pleased you like the red! I really think this case is outstanding quality for the money. I've had one since my original iPad 1; they last incredibly well.

    The interior is soft and doubt it will scratch, the fit is perfect, not too tight.

    ----------

    Yes the cover folds around back and sits flat

    I love my Yoobao case for my iPad 1, I'm gonna kick myself if I wasted time/money trying other cases.

    The one thing I want to know, does the top cover stick at all to the case. I don't need it to stick if I'm shaking it upside down, but I'd at least like the top to stay down somewhat, which my current case doesn't do.

    Well if it helps any I recieved an email from kev today stating that the coffee case I pre ordered will be delayed another week because Yoobao is running behind on production and will not start the production of the Coffee color till Monday so they wont be shipping till around the 9th or 10th so I would imagine other sellers have the same issue and he is usually the first in the US with their products

    I love me my yoobaos, I had all 3 colors of the exec case. for this kind of folio case, it can't be beat imo. but I have moved away from cases that cover the glass bezel. Dirt and debris gets trapped and ground in, Yes I took my cases off periodically to clean. Not worth the scratched glass I got on my iPad2.
    yoobao makes non bezel coverage cases too.
    If you don't mind that, the yoobaos are slim, attractive and functional otherwise. maybe someone on Amazon will drop the price to $15 like last year and you can get various colors like I did.

    Lauren, I don't mean to call you out but I thought you had said your yoobao had frayed or worn too fast last year. I was surprised, mine held together well, and I used the black and then the red one daily.

    ----------

    You're quite right. The Yoobao case I first received was from AYL on Amazon. It lasted a couple of months and started seperating on the edges. I then got one from "K", and still have it. I am using it on my new iPad still, and it looks great.
    I really don't think the cases from AYL were the same as those from him.

    I can't tell from the pics but does the front bezel lie flat or are there slight gaps? TIA!

    Gig I'm worried about sand/dirt getting between the bezel and scratching as well, do you think that'd be the case with the Chinao Wheat? (since its a microfiber front face maybe not) How about the Vaja style it's open bezel any experience with that one?

    Got my red one today, hubby's coffe one will be here next week. Good service and the new cases feel like better quality than the iPad 2 cases. We're happy!

    Is it possible for you to post pics of your case? I would love to see any differences from my red iPad 2 case. I'm really interested in the Coffee color too, so tell hubby we would love pics when his case arrives. It's a new color and I am sure others would be interested.:)

    Can someone who owns the new Yoobao Exec case tell if the screen cover is held by magnets when it's closed and how stron they are?

    I tried a few cases already ( STM Skinny, Maroo, Apple Smart Cover ) for new iPad but looks like it will switch to Yoobao as it s very similar to the Chinao case I had for my old iPad Gen 1 for more that a year.

    It holds good enough, but if you shake it, no it will open, but no issues just carrying it around or sideways. It seems to get better the more it's used.
