Great concept, poor execution - it simply doesn't work?
on 3 January 2013
I was bought this as a gift for Christmas and set it up in anticipation of a bit of Christmas time cookery. The concept is great, and I was looking forward to not having a filthy flour and grease covered screen, but the stylus simply does not work on my iPad 3? After numerous attempts with varying pressure, and cleaning the screen assuming a bit of user error I could only get a response from the stylus in 1 of perhaps every 15 touches. It's a crippling failure since even the cheapest freebie styli that come with a case work perfectly every time, so I don't understand how Belkin could have got it so wrong? The stylus is also equally ineffective on my iPhone 5.
The stand although smart, is no more reliable than the folding case my iPad normally lives in, but a minor positive is that the case didn't have to be removed to use the stand.
Very disappointing, and it's too expensive to be a snazzy chrome paperweight stand, so it'll have to be returned.
