Work Play iPad Mini Folio
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.

This is a really fantastic folio and really appreciate having the notepad along side it. Quality is great, the only improvement I'd make is the capability to view the screen both horizontally and vertically when angled.

It protects as well as it looks. It is easy to put into a standing position and I love having pen and paper right there.

I bought a cover from Apple and one from Franklin Covey and neither worked for me. I tried this Folio and I love it. I love having the paper along side of the IPad. I can quickly take notes and transfer to my IPad. The IPad removes easily for quick pictures or just to hold in your hand. I highly recommend this Folio.

Bought this for a gift for my son's graduation and he loves it. The color is beautiful and the leather is top quality.

I love this case. However, with that said there is one flaw. The magnet on the top corner of the folio is about 1/2 lower than the magnet on the case. Since they do not match up the hold in the case is not as tight as it should be. I'm always afraid of the case coming lose from the folio.
On the next version you need to move the pen loop up a little so that a standard pen ( I use the L - Tech stealth) does not protrude out of the bottom of the case.

Disappointed with product
I purchased this for my husband as a Christmas gift and after trying it for 3 months, we just removed the iPad from the holder. The design is faulty in that it covers too much of the screen and you cannot navigate easily, so we returned to using an Otterbox.
The rest of the folio is nice for having a writing pad and pen, but not in combination with the iPad.

This is a great tool. When I have my Mini at the office, it provides both a writing surface and the tablet in a single location. And the notepaper included? Makes me wonder why I buy paper anyplace else.

Classy and Useful
This folio combines the iPad mini with a notepad very nicely. The leather feels and looks great, and the cover feels substantial and sturdy. The iPad holder comes off with a slight pull so you can use it independently of the folio. The magnets hold it in place, but aren't strong enough to make it difficult to detach. The folding stand operation works well. I'm a fountain pen user, so having the notepad and pen holder is a real plus. Sometimes pen and paper just work best for certain things.
Overall, it feels great, looks classy and perfect in the office or home. You can carry your iPad and a notepad in a convenient and reasonably compact holder, and it functions as a stand for work or play.
Probably my only gripe is that the frame around the front of the iPad is a little too wide around the side edges of the screen. It does not block the screen at all, but because the leather is a little thick and comes so close to the edge of the screen, it can be difficult to hit some icons and text on the edge of the screen. That is an issue with a text app like Notes, when you want to put the insertion point at the left edge of the screen. It's hard to reach.

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.
