iProp iPad stand
It's like having a third arm, without the inconvenience of having to get all new shirts. We first saw the iProp at the International CES in Las Vegas. The folks at iProp were kind enough to send GadgetsForGeezers one for review. We have reviewed several iPad holders for various purposes since this years Consumer Electronics Show, but for hands free iPad use the iProp is a standout.
This stand is 36 inches tall, most of that gooseneck. The iProp is sturdy and heavy duty, after all nobody wants to see their iPad tip over. The V shaped metal base is very solid, and weighing in at nearly four pounds, it will keep your precious iPad safely cradled. The base is thin, so you can fit it under the side of your chair, or bed. We tried it with chairs, love seats, recliners, even a rocking chair, and the iProp worked great with them all.
If you are an armchair commando, and like to use your iPad to control your media empire, you will love the iProp. With the iProp, you can position your iPad next to you within easy reach to control your devices. If you don't have any devices to control, the iProp makes viewing media on your iPad very comfortable.
Like to watch movies in bed, but hate having to prop up your iPad on your knees, or feel your arm going numb half way through the movie? You will love this device. Want to read your music from your iPad? iProp makes a great music stand too.
Your iPad locks into the iProp securely (we tipped it upside down - no problem), releases easily, and the locking ball hinge allows you to position your iPad in landscape, portrait, or anywhere in between, at any angle.
If you like to bang out your emails on your iPad, the iProp is a great help, but because it is a single stalk setup, you can experience some movement during keystrokes. We found that stabilizing the iProp with a knee fixed that, and allowed us to bang away with both hands.
You will not find the iProp at you big box stores, but it is available online from the manufacturer. The iProp comes with minimal packaging. If you can use an allen wrench, you can set this up in less than five minutes. Then watch your friends iPad accessory envy kick into high gear.
