The kind people over at MacTrast just got their hands on a Compass, and had a lot of very nice things to say about it (and us!).
In their words:
“Plain and simple: the Compass unfolds into a tripod-like easel for displaying, using, or viewing your iPad.
When taking the Compass from the included neoprene travel sleeve, it is merely an inch wide and seven inches tall. The compact size makes it easily portable in a backpack, handbag, or purse and once you use the Compass, you will want to take it everywhere.
The easel orientation easily accommodates the iPad in portrait or landscape and works well for FaceTime conversations, Keynote presentations, playing your favorite games, or showing off your recent vacation pictures. If you will be using the Compass to type, lay the tripod frame back onto the rear leg and unfold the shortened tab found in the rear. This laying position places the iPad at 15 degrees, which is excellent for typing, while still elevating the viewing angle. The two options make the Compass an excellent way to having fun or get things done!”
In case you’re wondering if you actually need a stand, well…
“Would you like a fashionable way to show off a set of pictures for company? Use the easel mode and iPhoto to loop images when friends and family visit. …better yet, prop up your iPad and stream music to your stereo using AirPlay and let your Album art generate conversation.
Honestly, you didn’t know you needed a stand until you own one. I love iPhone and iPad stands (I have several scattered across the house and in the office) and the Compass is at the top of a long list.”
So if you’re making a list of accessories you need for that New iPad (or really any iPad — Compass fits them all perfectly!), make sure you put Compass right there. At the top. Get yours today (ships free in the USA, and for a low flat rate in many of our favorite international destinations)! By the way, did we happen to mention Compass goes great with a BookBook?
