    Like this better than the full cover

    • Written by from Coral Springs

    I've had both this cover and the full magnetic cover and I prefer this one. I don't fold the covers all the way back making it easier to grip and use the camera. I prefer to fold it in half and the ends at the fold tend to stretch a bit on both cases. Both my cases were blue an the dirt does show. The full cover to me is bulky and hard to slide into my purse. It does protect better but it's just so bulky and since the most delicate part is the screen, this cover works fine for me - no damage when it fell on hardwood floor. I use my iPad all the time and the magnet holds just fine and I don't see any scratches. I'm getting a new black one now.

    Does exactly what I bought it for

    • Written by from Houlton

    I received my Smart Cover today in a timely manner. It is well made and aligns perfectly and securely with the iPad 4. My reason for purchasing it is to make using the iPad around the house more convenient than the more bulky Snugg case which I also own. The Smart Cover is designed to only protect the screen so when traveling I will slip the device into the Snugg case knowing that the iPad has more complete protection.

    Absolutely perfect

    • Written by from Jackson

    I wanted a case that did not take away from the beauty of my new iPad while making it more practical. This case is perfect. It is beautiful, simple, and functional. I've had it for a year and a half and it still works great, little dirty but completely functional. I think I will be upgrading to the Smart Cover to protect the back soon.

    Love it

    • Written by from Bellflower

    Whoever rated this negative is crazy this case is the best case I've ever bought it protects my iPad I love the color I got in pink yes it gets dirty but all you do is easily wipe it clean. I love everything about it I even told my boyfriend for Christmas I want it in green but this time I'll get the smart case so it can protect the front and the back :)

    Works great, what is wrong with you?

    • Written by from Moorpark

    Negative reviews seem to balk at how the cover falls off before the owner drops it and cracks the screen. Treat the iPad like it's an electronic device and transport it carefully. If you want a minimalist cover that works great to protect your screen and hold the device in various positions, then this is perfect. I also like the way when one opens the cover the iPad wakes. People that are klutzes should spend $50 more and buy an Otterbox.

    Worth the extra money, IMO

    • Written by from Sauquoit

    I've had my iPad 3 since October and just finally got a REAL smart cover. I have two fakes from Amazon, and the real thing is way better quality than the fakes. Even right out of the packaging I noticed a HUGE difference. It's softer inside, sturdier outside (no creases after a week - fakes developed deep creases after the first couple of folds), magnets are better/stronger, and doesn't get dirty. I got the dark grey, and it's definitely worth the extra money, in my opinion. I don't regret my purchase at all.

    Terrific case

    • Written by from Seekonk

    I've been using the product red Smart cover for three months now. Potential buyers should understand this is just a cover not a case for Protection from dropping, etc. I first bought the smart case but found that it obscured too much of the design of the actual iPad. So I traded it in for the smart cover and am much happier with it. I like the Apple design aesthetic and was attracted to the case because it works really well with that vocabulary. I would recommend you purchase a darker color, that will obscure any fingerprints or smudges. The case will show wear after a while, I have a leather one. I actually like the slight cracking that is starting to occur, it feels like an expensive and often used item, like my favorite briefcase or pair of gloves. It's a very tactile experience, extremely satisfying to hold. Considering that this is an item that I use every day, I'm Very happy with my purchase. I also own a third party case for protection for those occasions when I need to have just the iPad without a briefcase or bag to carry it in.

    Great

    • Written by from Opglabbeek

    Very happy with this buy, does what it is supposed to do, PROTECT THE FRONT. There are so many people mad because it doesn't protect the back. It is a cover not a case. And it is a very good cover

    Great Cover

    This cover does exactly what it is supposed to do and it is brilliantly designed. Don't listen to the reviews of people that don't read the product description...

    Does what it is supposed to!

    • Written by from Palm Bay

    Saw alot of bad reviews and not to sure what people are expecting from this. The cover, covers my iPad and prtects it. The wake up and sleep fuction performs correctly. All the different fold set ups work just the way they are supposed to. It is good quailty. I think it is worth the money and a great buy.

    Mini

    Cover is great for mini but they need to get a case for the mini so we don't have to go elsewhere.

    I didn't know customers were dumb til I read reviews for this

    • Written by from Tacoma

    This is quite obviously not a case to protect your iPad. That should be obvious right? I mean shoot. It's just a cover! How could that be anymore obvious? Over and over again people will drop their iPads blaming this cover for not protecting them and writing horrible reviews when really, it's meant as a nice little cover/ kickstand/ iPad waker upper.

    This case has worked perfectly for me and well...it's hard to be really disappointed when you know what to expect. If you think you can put this cover on and throw it all over the place, yep. You'll be disappointed. In other news, iPads and lots of other things break when you drop them. So be careful and stop relying on cases to save your iPad from being destroyed

    Good cover

    • Written by from Saint Paul

    I really like it for what it is!! I'm not worried about the back (ipad)because I really don't abuse my ipad. If you just have your ipad at home for reading or web surfing get this cove, but, if you are going to be taking your ipad to work or school than, yes, maybe invest in the case.

    Skeptical at first, but totally satisfied in the end

    • Written by from Toronto

    I was skeptical of how well this would work after reading so many negative reviews. I bought the DARK GREY Smart Cover because I noticed that the other colours start to look dirty after a few months of use. Four months later, I am totally happy with this product. When closed it also somehow manages to clean the screen of fingerprints somewhat. The only exception to that is where the hinges in the cover don't quite touch the screen. I've had zero problems and would highly recommend it to anyone that isn't careless and constantly dropping their gear and then blaming others for it.

    It is Perfect.

    • Written by from BERLIN

    Don't bother reading the low stars like I did before I bought this. It is meant to COVER the iPAD. Not protect it. that is why there is back smart cover compatible covers. BUt this is a perfect stand, cover, and personality for the iPads. I love it because its not bulky but it is really useful. It's not really an accessory either. It's actually like "need" for the iPad. It really makes an iPad, an iPad and since it's made by Apple, it won't look like a third party product. I love this because it doest protect the screen from tables or clunks. I consider this product. Its really helpful.

    Simple. Perfect.

    • Written by from Temecula

    People who complain that the cover doesn't cover the back are missing the point of this elegant thoughtful product. It elegant and completely on point with each little detail. It clips on with ease, no scratching, aligns perfectly, and if you're smart enough to figure out that you can lay the ipad on the cover and not the back, you can take advantage of this very effectively simple cover.

    That said if you are more like an industrial strength ipad user and need to be able to throw it around at a hurried pace, not taking care of where and how you place your ipad on surfaces maybe the cover isn't for you... but you should be able to tell the design is not meant for you just from from simply looking at it, saving yourself being unhappy from buying the wrong product for your needs.

    Good job Steve Jobs and Apple.

    Does what it was designed to do

    • Written by from Ann Arbor

    The Smart cover was not made to be a case for protection or for preventing scratches to the back. I love my Smart cover. It maintains the integrity of the iPad design. I personally prefer the polyurethane and think that it is more durable. I have mine combined with the neoprene sleeve, and it is perfect. The incase origami sleeve works particularly well with the smart cover and gives me a lot of different angles on which to prop the iPad. I love the Smart cover.
