    Reading in bed - Needing a Stand

    I spend a good bit of time with iPad when I'm in the bed. I unwind after a long day at work by reading and playing on the iPad, and Im getting ready to order a stand/lap desk for the iPad.

    I saw the review of the Padded Spaces prop it up stand, and that's along the lines of what Im looking for.
    Home of the Prop It Up? - Padded Spaces

    I'm sure there are others who have faced this situation. I figured there would be more options available, but it's been hard to find a desk like that, which will also prop up the iPad in a standing position.

    So before I drop the hammer and place my order, I wanted to see if there were any other products similar to the one from Padded spaces I should consider. Also, I will be ordering a new reading pillow for lack of a better term. A big pillow that sits against the headboard and is shaped kind of like the back of a chair, recommendations on that would be great.

    My wife uses a little TV tray type thing and the official iPad case that folds up when she wants to do that.

    We don't do a ton of reading in bed though....read that it's bad for your sleep cycle to do anything but sleep and have sex in bed. Watching TV and reading supposedly leads to worse sleep so we don't really do that often.

    PS - Not judging what you do in bed just saying why we haven't tried searching harder for a solution.

    That's actually correct, studies show its a terrible habit. But Its my bad habit and I need a device to support it lol. My girlfriend and I find exciting places to do the grown up, so maybe it will balance out

    Seems Steve Jobs is also looking for a way to use his iPad in bed:

    Here's another product that claims to make iPadding in bed more practical:
    WedgePad iPad Pillow

    Not quite sure how well these props would work, but let us know if you try any of them.

    Thumbs up

    That picture is gold!

    I had your same issues Teacher's Pet. I searched high and low. Even tried making something myself. Most of the time I'd just use 1-2 pillows depending on the angle I needed.

    When I saw the Prop It Up and read a few of the reviews, I gave it a try. Well worth it in my opinion. Very secure feeling, no matter where I'm sitting or lying down. The build quality was really impressive too, doesn't seem to be cheap Chinese.

    I've heard from some board members who have talked to the owner that they have some new models coming out soon. But I'm happy for now

    Thanks for the input oche, your review and the mini review thread have been helpful. I just didn't want to order it and then find out there was a much better solution if only I had looked around. It seems to me that this is definitely the best option for now.

    I bought the groovystand. I'm happy with it. It does the job well, two seperate angles, and i use it for reading and watching movies. Word of caution however, if you order it, you will likely wait about 2 weeks as I believe they are made to order. Also, communication through email was non-existent as well. But like I said, it fits my needs perfectly and wasn't pricey.

    get the apple case or the marwear eco view case or the macally bookstand case, the incipio kickstand case or...

    just use a photo frame stand, that would cost you around $3 at any hobby shop.
