Great little cover that exceeded my expectations
on 3 September 2015
I wanted a light, inexpensive case for my newly aquired iPad mini. Including postage this came in at £3. It arrived within 48hours of my ordering it and exceeded my expectations.
It's maybe a little darker pink than the photo, but honestly that's not a concern (I note that to other reviewers it was). I can't say whether it's actually leather, but it appears to be good quality.
I like that it isn't a "snap on" case, so there's no struggle to get the iPad in or out of it when I want to. That said, the case is snug and very secure, there's no chance the iPad will slip out accidentally. I like the way the stand feature works. The very simple tag on the back holds the pad upright and in place, it doesn't slip like my "regular" iPad case does.
I wanted a case that would not be bulky. I bought this mini so that I could take it travelling with me and it would slip into a bag, unlike my regular iPad that is my constant companion but is too bulky (with its cover on) to fit most shoulder bags. So I wanted a case that wouldn't bulk it out too much, and this does the job very well. The added advantage is that I can slip the pad out any time I want to use it without a cover.
As a footnote, I was in a local supermarket and saw very similar covers advertised as extra light. As far as I could see they were the same except for an embossed brand name and the outer packaging. They were £30. This made me even happier with my purchase!
