Since a first TUAW examination of a DODOcase iPad box behind in May of 2010, most TUAW bloggers as good as readers have depressed in adore with a book-like folio box which revitalized a bookbinding attention in San Francisco as good as proposed a renouned appendage category. The association has usually accomplished a major redesign of a wooden tray which cradles a iPad, so we’re reviewing a box as good as giving a TUAW reader an event to get one.
The simple pattern of a DODOcase hasn’t altered most in a dual years it’s been upon a market. It uses time-honored bookbinding techniques to cling to a firm fabric cover around a wooden interior support to strengthen your iPad from damage, as good as it looks good in a process. DODOcase sent a single of their Spring/Summer 2012 cases (starting during US$ 79.95) to test, as good as it’s a lovely shift from a “any tone we wish as prolonged as it’s black” cases from 2010.
This box is encased in splendid immature as good as blue (“Meadow” as good as “Lake”) bookbinding fine cloth which usually pops! The inside uses which same splendid blue material, as good as there’s a informed bookplate merged to a inside cover for personalizing a case. The latest box facilities a informed magnets to spin your iPad 2 or latest iPad upon as good as off.
The large disproportion we can see in between my strange 2010 DODOcase (black box in a art studio photos) as good as a latest model, alternative than a accessible splendid colors, is a latest wooden tray. DODOcase is right away regulating plain strips of bamboo to encase a iPad, opposite from a strange laminated strips which could moment as good as mangle if a box was dropped. I’ve beheld which a tray upon my strange DODOcase is rather bowed; which wouldn’t occur with a new, stiffer tray.
The strange indication had a utterly open tip for easy entrance to a power/sleep symbol as good as headphone jack upon a iPad. Now, a box utterly surrounds a tip as good as facilities a cutout for a headphone jack as good as a laser-cut bamboo energy button. The bottom of a box right away covers some-more of a iPad as well, giving even some-more insurance to your tablet. Since a box is right away written for both a iPad 2 as good as latest iPad, there’s an choice for a camera hole if you’re prone to operate your inscription for photography.
What can we say? The DODOcase is still an intensely renouned as good as well-built iPad case, winning a TUAW Best of 2011 endowment for iPad cases which was awarded to DODOcase by TUAW readers as good as staff. The association is patently unapproachable of a award, featuring it upon a recycled card coupling which is used to cling to a box upon store displays.
I do have dual suggestions for DODOcase which would have a box even improved than it is. First, greatfully get absolved of those small tanned hide stick-on pads which have been used to reason a iPad firmly in to a tray. They have a bent to tumble off if we need to take your iPad out of a box with any frequency, as good as alternative manufacturers have finished a good pursuit of conceptualizing enamel or rubber inserts which have been a permanent partial of a tray. My second idea is to emanate a box which can be propped up some-more easily. For examples of both suggestions, greatfully impute to a.
DODOcase continues a strain of luminosity in iPad cases with a new, stronger pattern as good as a accumulation of tone options which move a lovely relevancy to this princely product.

- New, all a time becoming different extraneous designs lighten your reason up whilst still charity glorious protection
- Compared to a competition, most DODOcase iPad cases have been a bargain
- Craftsmanship of a DODOcase products is incredibly good
- Case doesn’t have a little of a mount options accessible from alternative vendors
- Use of “stick-on” tabs in a corners to reason a iPad in place seems outdated
Who is it for?
- Anyone seeking for a book-style iPad box who wants a peculiarity American-made product which will last.
