Compass by TwelveSouth is the iPad stand I have been wishing for. It is made out of gorgeous steel and is incredibly versatile: Used upright as an easel, Compass lets you view and interact with iPad in both portrait and landscape modes, even if you keep your iPad protected in the Apple case. Turn your iPad on its side, in landscape position, and Compass becomes the ultimate portable theater.
It is about the size of candy bar, requiring very little space in your backpack, computer bag or purse. Store it in the included soft travel sleeve, which matches the Apple iPad case, and you’re ready to roll.
