    Hello everyone,

    I recently got an iPad 2 and I'm thinking about
    getting a Smart Cover. But I have a question or two about it.

    First, "without turning on a password, will the Smart Cover Disable the lock screen?"

    Secondly, "is it worth the price? I mean, I can't think of how many times I've would have liked it to use while typing"

    Anywayz, thank you for your time. :)

    No, it doesn't disable the lock screen, though apparently it did on the original release of iOS 5, but was quickly fixed. I was actually asked the same question just recently and experimented and was unable to reproduce the problem, though I did find a few articles that back up what I'm now saying.

    As for the cover itself, I was dubious about it at first, but having it, I use it all the time and and very happy with it. I went for the leather one, but there is the cheaper option too. However, if you're going to be using it day in day out, it might be worth splashing out a bit.

    Thank you very much. This answered both of my questions. :D

    I will probably be using it daily, but I don't think I'll be getting the leather.

    Thanks again!
