    I purchased the apple tri-fold cover. The magnets do not hold well.
    I have had the magnets let go several times almost letting my mini slide off the
    Table. Has anyone found a similar cover with stronger magnets? I would not recommend
    Anyone purchasing the Apple cover.

    I bought one off eBay for much cheaper that also has a back cover and it works great.

    Look at products from Joy Factory. I have had one for my iPad for the past year and it has worked flawlessly. It also adds good protection with out adding much weight. They have products and different styles for all devices. The products are reasonably priced.

    Thanks, I do have another good cover for it that works great, but it makes the mini about three times
    As thick. I like the concept of the Apple cover because of how thin it is. However the magnets just let go to easily.

    I'd take a look at the Roocase portfolio for the Mini. I have it on my Mini and as you've already experienced, it's a lot safer for the device. It's full body as well so that's a plus. However, the one thing that the smart cover excels at that many portfolio cases for the iPad Mini does not is that they cover the sides of the screen, so sometimes it can be frustrating to tap on something at the edge of the screen in portrait. In landscape, it's just fine, no complaints there. It also comes with a stylus sleeve as well, so if you have a stylus or if you want to carry a pen with the device, you can. There're also 2 pockets on the front cover that you can slip some papers in.
