Work Play iPad Mini Folio
Top of the line Ipad Covers.
After opening the package that was a first class shipment I was very excited about my covers. I looked at several covers before I ordered so I knew exactly what I bargained for. I ordered the cover for the IPAD 2 first and the quality of leather was a little heavy but nevertheless it was first class and meant to be tough enough to sustain usage and protection from handling. My next order was 2 IPAD MINI Covers of which are easy to carry around in a purse and still offer I protection I demand for safety of the devices.

Best Folio I have found
I have tried different brands and either they are not elegant enough or function is poor. I like the versatility of this folio. I can have elegance at work and I can take it on vacation for picture taking. I love taking notes and then transferring it neatly into my iPad and this allows me to do it conveniently. Once the IPad is positioned properly, the magnet seems very strong. I like the hidden magnet versus the snap on type from other brands.

Cover covers too much!
I love Levenger products but am disappointed in this one. The leather overlap over the iPad covers too much of the edges so that it's next to impossible to tap these areas quickly the first time. Very frustrating.

Very useful solution
My initial reaction was it didn't work as the instructions indicated (in 10 degree position). Instructions look wrong in several areas. But after a few days of use the product works well. Easy to position in 45 degree position on lap and can use for hours. Overall package is thicker than needed and leather that surrounds display is not parallel at top and bottom. But still is best product available for holding a pad. I do think Levenger needs to upgrade the design so it folds in the 10 degree position and the magnets hold more firmly.

Great idea, bad iPad Mini fit
I really want to like this and I will still keep using it for a while to see if I can get used to it. I love having my iPad and a great writing pad available side by side. My problem is the fit with the iPad. The leather on top is very thick and covers the edges of the actually screen a bit. So it interferes with using the iPad when you need access to the edges within an app. Other than that (very significant) shortcoming, the quality of the case is very good - nice leather, great pad, pen holder. Everything I want, except a great fit for the iPad...

Not as good as its big brother Work & Play
I have the larger Work & Play model for my big iPad, and just got this for my iPad mini. I found the magnets to be much weaker in the smaller version, causing the iPad mini to not stay upright, and to easily come out of place. I will end up returning this one. I may get a replacement if I get confirmation that the magnets have been strengthened.

This folio pad gives me the best of both worlds, secures my mini Ipad and gives me the option to write notes. The magnet is strong enough and it can be held in several different positions. I bought a second one for my daughter.

Searched far and wide for the perfect iPad Mini case - and this is it! I have a camera hole, I can pop the iPad mini out of the portfolio to use it to take pictures, I can leave it in the folio and prop it up to show a PowerPoint Presentation, and I have the ability to take 'old-fashioned' notes while working on my Mini. It is classy and elegant, no zipper to stymie my access, and overall - EXACTLY what I was looking for.

Have looked everywhere for this!
I love my iPad mini, and have been working my way through the universe of covers. I have tried and returned at least six from other sources as I worked out what I need on a daily basis.
I like to take notes on the run during the work day without powering up the iPad, so I wanted a holder that included the notepad, but I couldn't quite accept the price of the Levenger. My family found a Booq product that was the "same", and it was a move in the right direction, but the quality just wasn't there, and it does not have the same features as your holder.
I am left-handed, and the conversion does not leave me feeling that the cover is now backwards (as the Booq did with the snap closure hanging off the wrong side). The leather quality is excellent. Also, being able to lift out the iPad to read (or take a picture) without holding the whole cover is much more convenient. Finally, the pen holder is sturdier and easier to use than the Booq, which had an elastic that would pull the case flap loose (the one that tucked behind the ipad) when you put in or took out the pen.
In short, I love this folio every day, and consider it worth every penny!

I really like it, it looks great and is perfect for me. I love to write notes and also to keep my input system to my storage places available. I don't have a camera hole and that is the only drawback for me.
