I am always interested in reviewing products from ZooGue because I know they will be both well made and well designed. It seems that each case I see offers some improvement over the previous one. The company's new case for the iPad Air lives up to my expectations.
The Prodigy Case for iPad Air
The case weighs 14 oz. (397 g), features a magnetic sleep/wake function, and corner edge protection. It is a notebook/folio style case in that it covers the entire iPad when not in use. The extra padding is good for protection, but not so much in keeping with being lightweight. It offers six viewing angles and when placed in the position you want, it is very stable and remains in place. As long as you have it on a stable surface it will not tip over. The case is made from durable polyurethane.
A magnetic flap closure is featured
I expected the case to have adjustable viewing angles and to be sturdy and well made — and it was. What pleases me most beyond that is the fastener that keeps the case securely closed when not in use. It's a magnetic closure that snaps in place. The fastener will not come open unless you specifically open it yourself.
Six horizontal viewing angles are available
The Case Prodigy for iPad Air has an MSRP of US$59.99.
Using the Product
It is very easy to insert and remove the iPad Air from the case. It's held in place within the case with a fold-over flap that is located at the center fold. The flap is held in place with a Velcro fastener. When the case is in a viewing angle that supports typing, it neither wobbles or tips. All buttons and ports are easily accessible. It is also important to note that the pebbled finish on the case makes it easy to carry. However, this case does not provide good support for vertical viewing.
Do I Recommend it?
I do. I am thoroughly enjoying using this case and appreciate both the sturdiness and the protection it affords my iPad Air. However, it's not one of the lightest cases for the iPad Air that TMO has tested.
