    Very Disappointed & it's Useless

    • Written by from Blackburn

    I have to say this should be taken down from apples products & Redesigned Totally.

    This is a waste of time getting if you would like landscape mode as you can ONLY use this in Portrait ONLY & like many apple user's out there a lot of us mostly use this in landscape mode.

    Also the smart cover behind when you dock the Ipad does not fit right. It's Very untidy & I would of expected much more from apple.

    Be warned if your buying this. Make sure you know it's Pros & Cons people OK.
    Right now Last time i laid my eyes on this in the house it was at the bottom of our Kids Toy box.

    Who ever designed this needs a chance to redesign it & Fast..

    Very disappointed, scratched my iPad 3

    • Written by from LONDON

    I am very disappointed with the iPad dock. Its seems It can be difficult to place the iPad 3 on the dock due to the bevelled edge as the bottom of the ipad.

    When attempting to place my iPad on the dock it slipped, missing the dock connector. This resulted in the two prongs (located at the end of each end of the dock connector) scratching the rear of my iPad 3 in 3 separate places.

    I'm a big fan of Apple products, but feel they have made a big mistake with this flimsy dock.

    Wish I'd read more pre-submitted questions and answers before buying

    In my opinion I will probably use this as a bedside stand to charge the iPad overnight.

    My two main gripes with this accessory are...
    1. I bought this to be used with the Digital AV connector. However, the ipad can only be positioned in portrait; this is fine for most applications but when connecting via the Digital AV connector most movies, pictures would be more suited to being displayed in landscape.
    2. The smart cover does not sit neatly behind the ipad when docked, therefore it either needs to be removed completely each time the dock is used or it has to be folded to one side, which looks untidy.
    Overall disappointed. I would have expected more thought from Apple given the innovative ideas that have gone into the iPad and the price of the accessory.

    Quite ridiculous !!! READ THE DETAIL CAREFULLY !!!

    First, this dock DOES manage to hold the iPad at a sensible angle. The actual connection with the dock connector is a little hit and miss. Why ever Apple didn't take the opportunity to redesign this is beyond me.
    However, the really BAD part is that you can't USB connect this AND charge at the same time!! On top of this the charge rate from an iMac only manages to charge the iPad VERY slowly. To charge at a decent rate you need to use the 10w adapter. A truly hopeless arrangement. Worst Apple design ever!
