There seem to be no end of innovative stands for tablets and smartphones, and that’s just fine. It’s great to have such a wide choice from which to pick. I’m partial to comfortable (ie: soft but
secure) supports for laptop typing and surfing or what have you. iPevo’s PadPillow is a good one, and so is Dockem’s new iProp. Soft padded contact services are more comfortable then stands made of
hard materials, and offer a superior coefficient of traction, so to speak, to hold the iPad in situ more stably. Both products are easy on the tops of your legs, and hold the iPad in a much more
comfortable orientation for typing or just viewing than having the device laying flat on your lap. Both stands are lightweight, but the iProp is more compact.
The iProp’s “bean bag”
design (it’s actually stuffed with silicon microbeads—not beans) allows you to conveniently use your tablet hands-free nearly anywhere whether the surface it’s resting on is hard, soft, even, or
irregular. The microbead base automatically and instantly re-contours to match the shape of the support surface. Use in bed is a prima facie example.
The iProp’s microbead filled base changes shape to form around your legs or any other surface you sit it on, and you can watch a movie or read on the tablet in bed hands-free without as much worry
