iPad 3 How-To: Typi

15

Filed Under (iPad in Education, APPLICATION, All Applications, IPEVO) by ipevoblog on 2012-04-15

This is our fifth and final entry in the iPad 3 How-To series. Last but certainly not least is a personal favorite for many here in the office: Typi Folio Case + Keyboard. Typi Folio Case is a terrific-looking case in handcrafted felt and leather for the new iPad. Typi comes in either black or tan, and it performs three jobs in one. Typi protects your case from daily wear and tear during transport and use. It also acts as a stand. Typi’s strap can be unbuttoned and rebuttoned to support iPad 3 at several viewing angles. This support is just as sturdy with iPad 3 as it is with the iPad 2. Not surprising: this is a well-made case! Typi also has a separate QWERTY keyboard which is carried within the case by magnets. It communicates via Bluetooth with your tablet so you can get writing, emailing, and many other things done quicker versus the touchpad keyboard. Both iPad 2 and iPad 3 use the same Bluetooth technology, so the keyboard works just the same no matter which tablet you have. This keyboard can be easily removed for remote operation, and it has custom hotkeys like volume control and playback options which work for both generations of iPad. The iPad 3 will easily slip in to Typi’s holder; just tuck in the tab to complete installation. All ports and controls are accessible, including sleep/wake mode, volume control, headphone jack, microphone, speakers, front camera lens, dock connector, and the rear camera lens. You won’t have to take the iPad in and out. Also noteworthy is the fact that Typi has a magnet in its cover which causes the iPad to sleep when the cover is closed and wake up when the cover is open. This works just as well with iPad 3 as with iPad 2, and many iPad 3 cases now on the market can’t make that claim. Overall, Typi is still the same “all-in-one wonder” accessory for iPad 3 as it is for iPad 2. And we think you’ll agree. Have a question? Email us at cs@ipevo.com. And happy tablet computing!

iPad 3 How-To: Perch Holder for iPad 2 and 3

Perch Holder for iPad 2 and 3

This is our third entry in the iPad How-To series where we help you maximize your use of the iPad 3 and IPEVO accessories.

We recently introduced the standalone Perch iPad 2 Holder, and now (drum roll please), its new name is the Perch Holder for iPad 2 and 3. The Holder is offered for anyone who purchased a Perch stand (all three lengths) for the original iPad who then upgraded to an iPad 2 and now the new iPad, iPad 3. By just buying the holder instead of an entirely new stand, you save money and your technology grows with you. That’s a pretty powerful one-two punch.

The Perch Holder works with both iPad 2 and iPad 3. So if you have a Perch stand for the original iPad and you bought an iPad 3, just purchase the standalone Holder and you’ll be good to go.

All you do to install the Perch Holder is press the holder button in the back of Perch (where the holder meets the aluminum leg), slide the old holder out, and pop the new one in until the button clicks into place. You can also switch back and forth between the holders if you’re using different iPads.

As we told you in the last entry, the best way to install iPad 3 into the holder is bottom first. Slip the two bottom corners in, making sure they tuck underneath the ribbing, and then angle the iPad up and press the top two corners firmly in until the top ribbing secures the device. The Perch Holder still has the same versatile dual-axis hinge in back, so you can adjust viewing angle as well as orientation very easily.

Taking the iPad 3 out is even easier: press down the side tab, grasp the iPad from the back, and pull forward, same as the original iPad.

One last note: as you’d expect, all of the ports and controls of iPad 3 are accessible when it’s installed in Perch Holder, including sleep/wake mode, volume control, headphone jack, microphone, speakers, front camera lens, dock connector, and even the rear camera lens.

Perch Holder

So if you have a Perch for the original iPad and need an upgrade because you just bought an iPad 3, save some coin and get the Perch Holder for iPad 2 and 3.

Hello and welcome to entry number two in our iPad 3 How-To series, covering all of IPEVO’s iPad 3 accessories.

The Perch family of stands works with all generations of iPad. There’s a model just for iPad, and there’s another model for both the iPad 2 and iPad 3 — make sure you choose the right model for your device when you add Perch to your shopping cart.

As you may know, Perch provides an attractive and sturdy stand for all of your iPad habits. There are three lengths to choose from: S Type, for tabletops, the larger M Type for seated users, and the largest L Type for standing users. No matter which type you choose, you’ll enjoy easy installation of your device and generous customization of orientation and viewing angles thanks to a special dual-axis hinge.

Perch family

With the iPad 3, the best approach to insertion is to install the bottom of the iPad 3 first. Slip in the two bottom corners of iPad 3, making sure they are tucked underneath the ribbing. Only after that should you angle in the iPad 3 and push the top two corners into the holder. Firmly press in the corners of iPad 3 until the ribbing is on top of the device and holding it in. The iPad 3 should be tightly in place, and not loose or wobbling.

All ports and controls of the iPad 3 are accessible thanks to cutouts in the holder, including sleep/wake mode, volume control, headphone jack, microphone, speakers, front camera lens, dock connector, and even the rear camera lens.

For troubleshooting with any of the Perch stands, just send us a note at cs@ipevo.com and we’ll be glad to help.

PadPillow

In the handful of days since the new iPad’s (or iPad 3’s) introduction, we’ve been busy at work exploring this great new tablet computer. And we want to make sure you know exactly how to use your new iPad with all of our existing iPad accessories. We will release several iPad 3 How-To’s, and here is the first, everybody’s favorite go-anywhere pillow stand, PadPillow. PadPillow is a plush, triangular pillow stand designed for all those times you’d rather be lounging on the couch, stretched out on the carpet, or lying in bed with your iPad rather than confined to the chair and desk. PadPillow has two sections, which can either be folded together for a compact lap or couch arm stand, or stretched apart to accommodate a full keyboard. PadPillow is so comfy you could use it as a pillow after you’re done using it as a stand — and believe me, we have!

PadPillow is not so dependent on exact dimensions as other cases and stands, so iPad 3 works just fine with PadPillow. In the compact position, the leather IPEVO tag helps keep iPad 3 in place for viewing, reading or surfing. In fact, PadPillow works with all three generations of iPad, ebook readers like Kindle and Nook, and even traditional magazines. So for avid readers who enjoy being comfortable for long reading sessions, PadPillow is perfect. And on that topic, one thing to note is the new iPad’s gorgeous screen. It’s the same 9.7 inches as the iPad 2, but it’s able to deliver an incredible 2048 x 1536 HD resolution and 264 pixels per inch. This is great for a lot of things — including gaming and movie-watching — but it’s also ideal for reading. Having checked out ebooks on the new iPad, we can say it’s a really, really nice experience, whether you’re just reading text or enjoying a full-color picture book. So no matter what you plan on doing with your new iPad, we have you covered with PadPillow. That’s all for our iPad 3 How-To series, and we hope you’ve found it helpful. As always, email us at cs@ipevo.com if you have any questions about how to use your iPad 3 with IPEVO’s family of iPad accessories.
