Work Play iPad Mini Folio
I purchased the work and play for my iphone 5 and loved it so much I wanted it for my ipad mini. These were the two products I was missing in my work life! I could not be happier with these poducts unless I came up with the idea irst. Levenger beat me to the punch! I am a elecronics guy but sometimes you just need to jot a few notes down... This takes care of it all!

Beautiful but flawed
I read all the other reviews and ordered despite the problems noted by others, mostly because this item was on sale and looked so nice. It is beautiful and I do love how it looks. However the frame my Ipad mini sits in is too large and covers some parts of the screen so it is annoying to have to move the leather out of the way when using the Ipad. The pen position is also a problem. But it does hold the Ipad well and I love the felt and leather. A suggestion is to make a holder which is just as lovely that could accommodate a keyboard. This one almost does and when the writing pad has less pages it might work, but I have been on the hunt for a leather IPad mini holder that also fits a keyboard. In the meantime this will work because of the reduced price I paid. It is well made and looks good except for the design flaws!

I have bought this cover for my own iPad mini and for my daughter and husband's iPads as well. It works well. The strap closure is easy to work and the magnet provides easy opening.I prop it open on the stand on my desk each day. I don't generally buy the Levenger notepads, just throw in a cheap mini legal pad which I buy in bulk.

Great cover for the iPad Mini
This was a gift for my bride, and she loves it. One of the most used gifts I bought her was the iPa Mini and this was a super add.

Great at the sale price
I bought this as a way to protect my iPad mini. To get leather at the sale price is a deal. I like that the slip case for the iPad removes magnetically, so it can provide protection to the iPad alone without the bulk of the full folio. The flip up position for viewing and typing is also nice I agree with other reviewers that putting the pen loop in the middle can cause a pen to stick out either end, but I will just find a shorter pen to put in there. It can also be a bit difficult to access the long sides of the screen. The leather comes right to the top and bottom of the screen in landscape mode, so it is hard to swipe to get the Notifications Screen and Control Center. I sort of have to peel the leather back a bit to start at the edge of the screen. Using a stylus helps (keep it in your pen loop!). If I remove the writing pad, or replace it with a thinner pad, I can fit my iPad mini-sized keyboard inside the folio as well.

mostly good features
I love the ability to easily take the ipad out for pictures or anything else. I love the note pad and the pen holder. The actual ipad case does not fit exactly right. It does cover up some of the areas needed to operate. I kind of have to scoot it over to do some things. It does not sit on the ipad exactly straight. The leather is great quality.

Case is nice and practical with the on board writing tablet. Ipad section functions well.

Design flaws make this a disappointment
I love the idea of having a pad bundled with my iPad Mini; it's so handy to be able to brainstorm when I am sitting on the couch surfing online. I really wanted to like this Levenger case but two design flaws make it a disappointment. The biggest one is that the leather holding the iPad in place isn't straight, so no matter what the screen always looks crooked and off-kilter. Second is that the pen holder is in the middle of the case, so if you try to slide a pen so the clip holds it, the pen ends up extending outside the case. Someone wasn't thinking on that one! My husband bought this for me as a present so I won't return it, but I don't feel it's worth the price, even on sale.

Great concept, poor design
Having purchase several Levenger products, I have always been very satisfied.
This may be the exception. While it is well made, I stopped using it after a couple business trips.
The iPad Mini case covers the edges of the screen, making it nearly impossible to touch screen icons in the corners of the iPad.
I still use the notepad part of the folio, however have removed the magnetic iPad Mini holder, which defeats the purpose of having a two in one solution.
The leather which covers the edges of the iPad are simply too large and cover critical parts of the screen, rendering it useless for touching any icons appearing in the corner of the iPad screen.
