Product Information

  • Overview

    Twelve South's Compass 2 stand offers a stylish, compact folding design that works as an easel and typing stand for iPad, iPad mini, and iPad Air. Upright as an easel, Compass neatly displays iPad in either portrait and landscape orientation—making it wonderfully comfortable to watch movies and iPhoto slideshows or page through a book. It's also a snap to transform Compass into a typing stand. Just flip down the secondary leg and this completely portable stand rests at an ideal angle for comfortable typing on the iPad onscreen keyboard. Once you're done, simply fold up Compass to store it in the included soft travel case, place it in your computer bag or backpack, and you're ready to roll.

  • Very poor design, solid construction

    1.0 out of 5 stars

    Cons: doesn't work as an iPad stand. Using the upright position the stand is reasonably solid with the iPad in landscape mode (t Cons: doesn't work as an iPad stand. Using the upright position the stand is reasonably solid with the iPad in landscape mode (though not too solid), but using the laid-down position is absolutely useless. With the iPad in landscape mode the stand wobbles side to side precariously, and with the iPad in portrait mode the iPad just falls off. I tried it with my iPad 4, which is obviously heavier than the iPad Air, so maybe it works better with the Air.
    Pros: nice to look at, solid piece of metal work

    Summary: do not buy this stand

    I've had this stand for several months and really like the design and profile. There's no worries about it falling apart, because I've had this stand for several months and really like the design and profile. There's no worries about it falling apart, because it's built like a tank. But that's about it.

    I would have given it 0 (ZERO) stars if not for the above notations. The Compass is very stable IF YOUR NOT USING YOUR iPAD. Problem is when you use the iPad the back and side legs will eventually collapse. Twelve South could fix this problem very easily by locking the (all) legs. If they do make this fix I want mine replace.

    Twelve South please fix and offer a replacement NOW!

    note: sure wish I could find the iPad stand that Diane Sawyer uses on ABC Evening News.

  • Compass 2 Stand Falls Short

    2.0 out of 5 stars

    I had such hope this would be the product that finally was a functional and not-so bulky solution for my iPad. The metal construct I had such hope this would be the product that finally was a functional and not-so bulky solution for my iPad. The metal construction is nice, and it is stylish. The flip-out rests for the iPad also accommodate the iPad cover, something that seems to be elusive amongst these products. It stands upright just fine, but it wobbles in the "lay-down" position. Wobbles, you say? Yes, it is NOT stable. My wife out-right rejected it from the kitchen on this basis. Money wasted.

The construction is top notch. The ease of use is amazing, the compass just slides into the pouch and i can slip it into my computer bag with ease. It's as if Apple made a stand for its iPad. Amazing.
