Smart Covers are rather handy, if a bit precarious when propping up our iPads: the more vertical orientation isn’t all too stable, especially on uneven or flat surfaces. Kickstarter-launched Halopad brings rock solid tablet support to the table, literally and figuratively, while remaining robust and inexpensive all the while. Two viewing angles, 18 degrees (more vertical) and 45 degrees (typing position), are provided by the ring’s wedges and work with both your tablet’s portrait and landscape modes.
