Experience of use of iPad 2 Smart Cover
For the first iPad we had a cover. It cool! On iPad in such cover it is possible to type simply the text or to look films. The case worked very fine. But we after all tried to make beautiful design [for a planshetnik], and late should hide this design in a case, truly? Not including that, now we made a product very narrow and easy, thus, it will need to be used with some accessories. Therefore we thought that to us on forces to make something more perfect for iPad 2. Having come back by the beginning, we longed to make a cover which would suit our product. And at us everything left, but it any more a cover. It is a cover which covers glass. It is Smart Cover.

Since March passed a lot of time, and at present we have a possibility to estimate Smart Cover cover by results of semi-annual experience of use. We eventually will unequivocally answer a question, whether one cover for true protection of iPad 2 suffices.
How it is necessary to use Smart Cover not to damage iPad?
Everything is true: it is necessary to put iPad 2 with put-on Smart Cover on the face. Or, when to you it is necessary — to open completely the screen a cover and to put iPad on it, already the face up.
Whether with comfort to use iPad 2 from Smart Cover on weight?
In a landscape mode — it is a pleasure. Smart Cover develops half-and-half and serves as such "substrate" under fingers:
With a portrait mode is more awful. You or completely open Smart Cover and hold it 2 hands (on the back party of a planshetnik the cover does not fasten), or leave it folded double:
Looking some awkwardness of the second option (as on a photo), it is perhaps more preferable. The left hand is tired, but only over time. As nobody forbids to hold iPad with the right hand. Plus — a peephole of the chamber remains open.
Whether adds Smart Cover to a planshetnik notable to weight?
As disappointingly it would not sound, adds. During the rare moments when I remove a cover, iPad 2 in comparison to a meeting becomes easy as a fuzz.
Whether there are wear tracks on the back iPad 2 panel?
No, any traces it is not observed. Here to you a photo of a planshetnik on which half a year carried Smart Cover:

And not simply carried, and used in different provisions. Including — in standing:
Whether wear tracks on Smart Cover are appreciable?
Yes, are appreciable:
On the second arm too there are attritions, but as I tried, embody them could not
Whether skin is used up?
More quickly — to pain simply becomes soiled. On a leather surface dirt which it is not so simple to remove gets:
Whether the internal surface of Smart Cover from microfiber wears out?
Whether it is sensitive, but the dust too collects be healthy. The internal surface, by the way, can be brushed for clothes.
Whether clears Smart Cover the iPad 2 screen?
Yes, but not everywhere. In places of bends between plates stains from fingers remain.

Whether appeared for scratch half a year on the display?
No, of what you can be convinced personally on the last photo:

We summarize. Smart Cover — beautiful protection for the second iPad if you get used to put a planshetnik the face down. If is not present — be so kind as to think up additional protection for the back panel. As the option, will approach a karbonovy film from the SGP company.
