    Since the evolution of iPads and tablets, I have had to include proper postural education when using gadgets for my patients with neck/spinal issues. It is such a common issue these days...and unfortunately I deal with a sore neck way too often, myself! Thanks for the info. I'll be sharing this with patients! :)

    My chiropractor told me the same thing when I was seeing him. He called it Text Neck. I like that stand, but in my room the base takes up too much room. I may look for something similar in the future.

    I did break down and get the Zoogue Genius Exec case finally. I couldn't wait any longer for the Magnetic case, since the company couldn't give me an exact date on when it would be released. I'm liking it so far. Waiting for a laptop bag to come from amazon, so I can be mobile with my IPP.

    Marilyn,
    I can get this stand right now for $69 on amazon and was thinking to get it. It said in some reviews that it's a tight fit, which your second photo shows. I don't go naked on my Ipad Pro, I always at least have the back cover on it, but it's not too thick. My question is, should I go with the bigger Deluxe Levo G2 stand, because maybe the Base on that one will hold the IPP better and might be bigger?
    I could also contact the company too. Thanks.
    Andy

    I don't think the base is any different than the one I have. On Amazon's page for that deluxe stand (Amazon.com: LEVO Deluxe iPad Floor Stand for all Best Tablet PCs, iPads, iPad Mini, New iPad Pro, Galaxy, Nexus, Xoom, Surface Pro, Miix, Nook, Fire, and Other Tablets and e Readers Gunmetal Color - G2: Computers & Accessories), the third picture shows a tablet mounted that says it's the iPad Pro. That picture looks exactly as my iPP does when it's in the stand. So, I'm thinking they are the same size. And, given that there still is "room" in the bungees, I'm thinking your iPP in its case will fit fine, width-wise, on the one I have.

    I'll tell you I am never worried about the stability of the stand, that it'll tip over. I'm typing this with the iPP on it right now and it's pretty steady. A little jiggle, but that's cause I'm tapping the screen. And, it's light enough that I can pick it up and take with me should I move to a different chair.

    I guess what I'm trying to say is: don't get the bigger stand cause you think the mount surface is bigger; I don't think it is. And, the angled base is sturdy enough that I don't think the square one withe wheels would be much better.

    So, in my opinion, I'd save yourself a lotta bucks and go with the one that's $69. That's a great price!

    YMMV.

    Thanks, Marilyn. I was hoping it was the same size. I'm glad I can save money now. I want to use it for my neck, because it bothers me a lot from the tablet and phone use. So Hoping the stand is stable enough to draw on also. That's my main use for it while in my Recliner. I still have to look down somewhat, but not as bad as my lap. I'll let you know how I like it when I get it.

    I do like your stand's base better, because the more expensive Deluxe Stand has a 12x12 base on wheels and I have a little over 13" of space between the recliner and my shelves in my bedroom. So a tight fit with that one. This cheaper model someone said in a review that you can place it at 90 degrees, one side along the front and one along the side of the chair or recliner. So works perfect for my limited space in my bedroom.

    Well I ordered it on Amazon Marilyn, and after doing some more reading, I cancelled the Order. The reach on the Essentials Stand is only 13.5" to the middle of the tablet, which means even though I'm right-handed, it would not sit in the center of my recliner. I can see it being uncomfortable for drawing with my body turned to the right to draw in the recliner.

    I measured and the larger deluxe floor stand is 18" and that puts it directly in the middle of my Recliner. So the company said they would match Brookstone, because I told them they had it $20 cheaper online. So Brookstone offered the free shipping also. Went back to the company and so did they, so got the deluxe stand for a good price and even bought a set of extra Bungee Cords for it. I just hope the base is not too big for the area I have available. It's going to be tight, but I should manage.

    I think you're going to like it! I'm so spoiled by this stand (as is my cat, cause now he can sit in my lap). It now feels weird when I hold the iPP in my lap.

    I don't have/use a recliner and I curl up in a chair or on the couch, so I never thought about the arm reach. I can have the stand on the outside or the inside of the chair/couch leg, so I can always put it where I want it.

    Regardless, that's awesome that you got a good deal. Congrats and please let us know what you think of the stand when you get it.

    Hi all. I was wondering if anyone has the official back case for the iPad pro 12.9 inch in addition to the Smart Cover and uses them simultaneously together? I need to know if when flipped back behind the iPad does the Smart Cover still stick to the back magnetically even though the back cover is on it.... Thanks very much for any help in this matter!

    :)

    The Smart Cover will stick to the back of the iPad Pro case. It does on mine.

    Thanks! I was hoping it would... Don't want that 12.9" Smart Cover flapping around all over the place! Thanks again! I already have the Smart Cover. Will probably get the back cover this weekend. Up until now I've been using the smart cover but also a sleeve. When I get the back cover I'll stop using the sleeve... Should be a better solution all around.
