iPad Lap Stand Review

After a long day, it is nice to relax with your iPad and unwind from the cares of the world. Unfortunately, your iPad is destined to get heavy after a while, even if you are reclining on the couch or lying on your bed. If only there were a way you could prop your iPad up on something so you could stir your coffee or eat popcorn and watch a video at the same time. You are in luck! There are several iPad lap stand cases on the market that hold your iPad for you, giving you the relaxing, hands-free experience you deserve.

iPad Lap Stands: What to Look For

Choosing the right iPad lap stand does not need to be a complex process. A good stand should hold your iPad in the positions you want and need, as well as be comfortable on your lap for extended amounts of time. Think about where you relax with your iPad the most and what materials would best match your style and décor.

Function
With an iPad lap stand, you can lounge just about anywhere – in your bedroom, on the couch, on the floor, in your car – the list is endless. However, different locations will call for different types of stands. You need an iPad lap stand that can be where you are. Do you want a lap stand designed to always be on your lap, or do you need one that can travel on an airplane or train with you and double as a pillow? Perhaps a lap stand that has a frame to adjust your viewing angle will be your best option, unless you'd rather raise your knees to adjust the stand to a perfect, custom angle. Some stands keep your iPad locked into one position, while others let your iPad sit loosely so you can adjust easily. Keep in mind the ways you'll most often be using your stand as you evaluate the different functions.

Stability
Few things are as frustrating as your iPad tipping over while you are trying to unwind, and it is hard to relax if you are constantly worried for the safety of your device. Depending on where you use your iPad, you may need an iPad lap stand that can stand on carpet, bedding, car seats or flat surfaces. A stable iPad lap stand is necessary if you really want to enjoy your iPad hands-free. Be sure to look for a stand that can hold up to bumps, withstand constant touchscreen poking and not fall over with the iPad installed.

Material
An iPad lap stand is designed to be used for long periods of time, so the material it is made of needs to be as comfortable as possible. iPad lap stands come in many colors and styles, and they are commonly made from cotton fabrics, microfiber or microsuede. Many have some form of pillow filled with foam padding or Styrofoam beads. It is important to decide what material will best suit your needs. A firm foam interior is usually used in stands that do not require additional assistance standing up, whereas a pillow type is better suited for lap use.

By choosing a functional, stable iPad lap stand made from the best materials, you can kick back and relax with your iPad, and enjoy your leisure time even more.
