 iPhone News - " You simply gotta appreciate this little nugget.. "

TabletPCReview - "We thought we saw every possible type of iPad case in the two years we've been reviewing them, but the flipable and foldable FlipSteady from NewPencil might be a first."

We found that other iPad cases are very limited. We knew we could make something better. So we did...

The FlipSteady automatically transforms into a versatile stand by simply opening the cover.

 The FlipSteady is a Patent Pending invention by Isaiah Coberly.

The FlipSteady fluidly transitions between numerous standing positions. There is no need to even touch the stand.

Incredibly Versatile and Stunningly easy to use. Even young ones can work the FlipSteady.

Facetime is better with the FlipSteady.  Free your hands to communicate and enjoy Facetime with perfect screen and camera viewing angles.

Sit UP! The viewing angles of the FlipSteady promote good posture.

Balance and Stability are found nearly everywhere the FlipSteady lands. The bottom structure of the stand conforms to rounded or slanted surfaces.

Flatten the stand for handheld computing by releasing the tether on the front of the case.

The FlipSteady may also be manually folded. Prop, wedge or hang your iPad in in countless ways. We STILL find new ways all of the time! Throughout the project, We will be posting Video updates showing new positions not shown here.

Type Smart style with the Flipsteady. This is a super low landscape viewing angle that makes for typing at an angle you are familiar with. Easy to set up and super sturdy.

The FlipSteady Pro Sticks to a refrigerator becoming most interactive refrigerator magnet in the world.

Choose Your version of the Flip Steady. 

FlipSteady Grip is the non-magnetic version of the case. This version has snap fasteners and a non-slip footing. See Rewards #4, #6 and #8.

FlipSteady Pro is a magnetic version of the case. See Rewards #5, #7 and #8.

We chose the finest Materials available to make the FlipSteady. .04" thick aluminum stiffeners are precisely laminated between a layer of Toray Ultrasuede soft fabric and Majilite Marine grade upholstery fabric. Both Fabrics have a wonderfully light hand and are durable enough to last Years and Years to come. The FlipSteady actually becomes better with age! 

The Flipsteady is stain resistant and made with fabrics known for their ability to be cleaned with ease. 

The FlipSteady has already been called a game changer by many experts in the case goods and consumer electronics industries. This is just the beginning. We’ve already begun research and development on our other innovative products.  It is our goal to be the go to company for groundbreaking and forward thinking ideas and products. This Kickstarter project will provide the means to move forward with our goals.

Thank you for your support.

Sincerely,
