Maximize Your iPad mini's Functionality with the Right iPad Case

Thank you to Snugg for providing a complimentary iPad Mini case sample for us to base this review upon. All opinions expressed are my own.

When my husband surprised me with an iPad mini a few months ago and told me what a great deal he had gotten on it from Best Buy, I was pretty happy.  However, when he showed me the paper-thin cover he had purchased for it for the price of $34, I thought he had lost his mind.  The fact was that I would be too scared to use my tablet outside of the house or to let our children use it with such a thin cover.  I've watched them accidentally drop their toy electronics so many times.  I definitely did not want this new tablet to be damaged due to a fall.

The Snugg iPad mini case has all the features I need to make my iPad mini functional and to keep it safe.  This case has a flip stand so that the tablet can rest on a flat surface at two different angles.

At the slight angle, the iPad mini can be used for reading, blogging, gaming, and everything in between.  At the more upright angle, the iPad mini is positioned perfectly for watching a video hands-free.  There is a much smaller chance of our children dropping the tablet if they can watch a video on it without having to hold it.  This position also turns our iPad mini into a great alarm clock while it charges overnight.

There are also a few other features offered by this Snugg tablet case that I consider to be extra perks.  First, it has a magnetic cover which triggers the iPad mini to sleep when the cover is closed and to wake when the cover is opened.  Second, the case has a place to securely store a stylus (which is not included).  Third, there is an elasticized strap on the cover for slipping your hand threw while the cover is flipped opened, minimizing the chances of dropping your tablet while holding it.  This strap is roomy enough to fit even my husband's large hands.

I should clarify that, even though the product title reads "Leather Case Cover", the case is actually made of PU leather (polyurethane leather).  I don't mind this because this material is extra durable and can be wiped clean.  This particular case is available in 10 different colors and is currently on sale for $29.99 (Regularly $39.99).
