Why use over the iPad Smart Cover?

- FaceTime in Portrait Mode. Compass holds iPad in Landscape and Portrait mode. Using FaceTime in the Portrait position puts the camera front and center, while Landscape leaves your iPad camera low and to one side. With Compass, watch movies in widescreen with iPad in Landscape mode, and enjoy FaceTime eye-to-eye in Portrait mode. Compass delivers both.

- Rest Compass on the hard rough ground, and iPad 2 on Compass. You will not want to put your iPad down. But when you do, you certainly won?t want to put it where it can be scratched! Instead, float your precious iPad on the soft silicone pads of Compass and let Compass support iPad floating several millimetres above that dangerous non-desk surface. Voila! Perfect support in any environment.

- It's all in the angle. The Apple iPad Smart Cover holds iPad at a 72-degree angle. Compass holds iPad at a lower 57-degree angle. This lower angle tends to be better in many mobile situations, including airplane tray tables. The more directly the screen faces you, the better it looks in regard to colour, glare, sharpness, etc.
