Does anyone have experience with the bookbook iPad cover? I desire something both beautiful and durable.
is beautiful, and I lust, but I am VERY hard on iPad cases. I have a leather one now (with no zipper), and in less than a year, it has completely come apart at the seams from repeated opening.
My usage: my iPad and I are joined at the hip. Ashamedly, I must confess to often sleeping with it in the bed. I probably open my iPad case 30 or more times a day. However, although I am hard on cases, I am pretty good to the actual machine, and I don't feel I need a "hardened" case to prevent damage from frequent dropping and the like. I desire durability, not impregnability.
I must have a case with a stand, and would prefer a case with lots of angle possibilities, though the two that the bookbook has seem be adequate, though not ideal, for my purposes. I would prefer a case that has opening for all ports and does not have to be removed for charging or similar tasks. I don't require one with a magnet that serves to turn the machine off when closed. I would rather go with leather than another material, but I am open to suggestions if you've found a good alternative.
So, if you have experience with the bookbook, would you say that it is fairly robust? How quickly would I totally wreck the zipper? Do you love yours? I am also open to suggestions for alternative cases and I have looked at the suggestions in this thread
. but of course all of the manufacturers claim the case will last "a decade or more!" when they've only been making the things for a couple of years, and they haven't seen the abuse I dole out.
Do you think perhaps that I would be better served by buying cheaper cases and just expect to replace them frequently? What I don't want to do is buy another $80+ case and have to replace it in less than a year.
