    Has anyone seen a back to clip on to the back of the iPad 2 but still allows the use of the Apple flip cover on the front?

    That looked interesting until I noticed in the video that the cover doesn't seem to stay on well. As he turned the iPad over the cover almost came off the edge. Also, there's an area of the end of the iPad back (for the speaker) that's left unprotected.

    Thanks for the idea, Max. At a minimum, this is a great interim solution to use with my smart cover until I can find a suitable slim folio case.

    I just wound up cutting a rectangle to fit below the black plastic of the 3G antenna, to just above the speaker. In a couple of minutes I have close to 90% of the back of the iPad protected from scratches.

    Regards,

    I bought a SkinIt skin for the back of my iPad but I won't be putting it on until I get it replaced in a month or two for the light leak issue. I'm not wasting the $30 to only use it for two months.

    I ordered this in clear...

    I haven't received it yet, they ship at the end of this month. It is supposed to work well with the smart cover (it's the item at the top of the page, hit the down arrow select "clear")

    I only bought the back as I had my original iPad with no surface scratch issues at all. Was the back Boduguardz easy to put on straight?

    I ordered mine a week plus ago. Looking forward to receiving it as I am
    fearful I'm going to drop this $600 piece of electronic art and damage it
    somehow.

    I just had invisible shield full body installed on my iPad 2. It does not interfere with the smart cover at all. I'm very happy with it.

    I put mine on last week. I would not call it easy. I did finally get the back on decently, but it took quite awhile.
    Now the front, I hated the way it went on and looked after it dried, so I took if off and put an SGP Ultra Crystal on the front. That one was very easy to apply and I love it. I have had one of those on my Droid X since I got it.
