    The Castiv Tab Station looks to be just the type of iPad holder I have been looking for. I ordered one through a UK music store but after being on back order for a week or so the order was cancelled with a note stating that it had been temporarily discontinued. I then went on the Castiv web site and used the web mail contact facility to ask them if it was still available but after a week or more I have had no reply.

    Does anyone in Canada, their home base appears to be St-Hyacinthe, QC, know whether Castiv still exists or have any knowledge of the Tab Station availability? It is still listed on their web pages but as they haven't replied to my question I am reluctant to try to order one direct.

    Thanks for that Gabriel1. Now ordered.
    The last time I checked Amazon UK there was only one for the rip off price of just under £60

    Interesting stand. What do you use it for ?If I may ask.
    Must say I have never seen that one before. Looks like a holder for music notes.

    Almost, Gabriel1. Order was cancelled today - out of stock. Everywhere else I have looked says discontinued. The company still haven't replied to my question. Makes me wonder whether they have gone out of business.
    So - my original query remains - does anyone in Canada know whether Castive is still in business? Their web page detailing the holder is still there.

    McTablet: Music is in the right direction. To hold the iPad when using music apps with a keyboard plugged in.

    Possibly. Thanks for the pointer. Had a look at the manufacturer site. It doesn't mention whether it can be used landscape. Doesn't look as though it is designed to hold the iPad securely that way round. A fault with quite a few iPad holders. It did, though, lead me to some others which look interesting.

    Thanks again. John

    You may be right about landscape, I'll check with her later (assuming that I can remember!).

    The reason that I chose this one is that the reviews for some of the others on the market mentioned iPads sliding out of the holders whereas the Editors Keys has a clip at the top to secure the iPad in place.
