Snugg recently got in touch and asked if we'd like to review one of their ipad cases. I was phenomenally lucky last christmas and managed to win not one but two ipad minis in two separate competitions (here and here) - the family are now joking that I just have to win one more to complete the set ! - so I thought that this was a great idea because the kids are forever picking up the wrong ipad and not finding the apps they want on "their" ipad. As well as providing protection for the ipad screen, a Snugg case would be a simple way of instantly recognising which ipad is which.
We opted for the electric blue leather case which is an absolutely gorgeous, vivid blue colour. The ipad slots easily inside and all the important bits like the charger slot, the camera and the buttons are easily accessible. It also has a hand strap and loop for holding the stylus (both features that, I must admit, we don't use).
As well as opening and closing like a book to protect the screen and folding back on itself while the ipad is in use, the case can be used as a stand, which is handy if you're watching a video on the ipad or playing with an animated story app with the children and several people want to see the screen at once.
It also has a hidden feature. It's great for extending your battery life because the case integrates with the sleep/wake function of your iPad mini, cleverly putting it into sleep mode when you close the cover. It's easy to wake - just open the cover and your tablet comes back to life.
The case feels really high quality and I was impressed to learn that it comes with a lifetime guarantee. I'll be very tempted to go back and buy an identical case in a different colour for the other ipad now.
