Speck FitFolio for iPad (2nd, 3rd, and 4th generation)
The FitFolio for iPad by Speck is one of several iPad cases offered by the long-time Apple accessory maker. Speck’s FitFolio style is very popular and available for other tablets as well. The iPad version comes in a wide variety of color and print choices. I took a look at the Megaplaid version for this review.
- Sleek style
- Hard-shell back
- Magnets on cover supports sleep/wake
- Multiple angles for typing and viewing
DESIGN & FEATURES
The FitFolio’s hard-shell cradle does a good job of protecting the back and sides of your iPad, without adding a lot of bulk. It’s very sleek and easy to carry.
The cutouts for the ports and buttons are all well done and easy to access.
The cutout for the charging port will fit a 30-pin connector, as well as a Lightning cable.
The interior lining of the cover is a soft microsuede that won’t scratch the screen. The cover, like many folio-style cases, has grooves to allow the iPad to be positioned at multiple angles in landscape mode. It works well on flat surfaces, but the grooves aren’t quite secure enough to work as well on things like blankets or mattresses.
The FitFolio conveniently supports the iPad’s sleep/wake functions via magnets in the cover. The closure on the FitFolio is a simple, but secure “smooth-snap clasp.”
I’m a fan of Speck’s FitFolio cases and the iPad version is another example of why. The FitFolio for iPad is a simple, yet stylish case that provides excellent protection without the bulk. Unless you have unique style or functional needs, the FitFolio should provide you with everything you’d want in an iPad case. I highly recommend it.
