6 iPad stands that will help you work (and play) anywhere you are

Having an iPad is great until you realize your arm is tired of propping it up for hours on end. To enjoy it to the fullest extent, you need the right stand to go with it. From portable setups to those that fit into your workflow, these are our favorite iPad stands.

6 iPad stands that will help you work (and play) anywhere you are
  • What’s the best iPad keyboard? Rather than using a separate keyboard, we’d suggest using a case that comes with a keyboard for your iPad. Check out the Logitech Slim Folio.
  • Is there a mouse for the iPad? Yep! We just discovered the Swiftpoint GT iPad travel mouse that is actually made for the iPad.
  • What’s the best way to mount an iPad in the car? This MagBag mount is durable and sturdy enough to hold your iPad on your dashboard while you drive.

Are you still using your hands to hold your iPad? Do you have to reassemble the pillows on your bed or couch to keep your tablet at the best angle? Or do you crane your neck over your desk just to watch videos?

Stop the madness. Put your iPad at the perfect height and angle with a stand.

Whether you use your iPad for work or strictly binging on Netflix, the right stand can change your life. We’ve compiled the six best iPad stands to make your life easier (and give your body a break).
