Elevate your iPad out of the spilt milk.

Another thing Compass 2 does that case-style stands don’t do is elevate your iPad up out of the spilt milk zone, batter and other ingredients involved in your kitchen adventures. Take Compass 2 into the workshop to build your Kickstarter project or move it into the studio where the glue and glitter roam free, knowing iPad is perched up out of the mess.

An instant typing stand.

The ultimate multi-tasking tool, Compass 2 features a fold-away secondary leg that creates a comfortable typing stand. Typing on iPad is that much more comfortable, making it easy to put in long stretches in Keynote, Pages, or Numbers without neckache that comes from working on your lap. It’s a small, totally mobile tool that can be used on planes, in airports, hotels, coffee shops, cafes and even in boardrooms.

Compass 2 FAQs

Compass 2 is redesigned and now optimized for iPad Air and mini, with a new locking rear leg (think like your car door), a better angle for FaceTime, and positions iPad higher for easy access to charging iPad while on Compass.

No. Compass is forged from steel to make it solid and sturdy. Knowing that, we covered every piece that touches your iPad in soft protective silicone. Look closely at the Compass and you'll see the arm supports, upright legs and even the top logo are covered in soft, subtle silicone. These soft pads also help prevent iPad from slipping or shifting when placed upon Compass.

Sure. Compass elevates iPad, leaving plenty of room to attach the Apple lightning cable, so you can charge and sync your iPad in any orientation - including portrait mode.

Yes. Compass is made from heavy gauge steel. While it is a small stand, you’ll be surprised by how heavy this little accessory is. It’s perfect for light touching, such as flipping through pages in a book or browsing your iPhoto library. In the low-angle typing mode, you can use the onscreen keyboard with no worries. When you use iPad to play games that require aggressive punching or poking of the tablet, we always suggest removing iPad from the stand and holding it in your hands or using your lap.
