As I’ve admitted here before, I’m a big lover of iPad stands. I have a favorite portable iPad stand (the Compass Mobile Stand from Twelve South) and a few favorites for use on my desk – including the Just Mobile UpStand)
The first time I saw the Just Mobile Encore iPad Stand, I knew it was one that I definitely wanted to try out. I thought it looked elegant and promising – and happily it has turned out to be both, in spades.
Here’s a bit of description and features detail from Just Mobile’s page for the stand:
Designed by the award-winning team at tools®, the Encore™ features a solid aluminum base ring and hinged arm. Adjust the arm to choose the perfect viewing angle for videos, or fold it down for rock-solid typing support.
- Iconic design by tools
- High-quality aluminum construction
- Foldable for portability
- Compatible with most tablet computers
- Solid support for typing
This is the lowest standing desk stand I’ve used for the iPad, and quite lightweight as well.
It’s priced at $59.95.
— This is a very handsome stand – it looks great on a desk or wherever it gets used.
— The design is very clever. The rubberized arm has a very good range of positions and is super easy to adjust quickly between positions that are ideal for viewing or typing.
— The arm folds down quite flat – so it is a very portable stand. Not ‘put in your pocket’ portable like the Compass Mobile, but very light and small enough to easily fit in a small messenger bag or just carry in your hand.
— It takes up very little space – so it’s easy to shift it around on a desk or wherever you’re using it.
— Despite its diminutive stature, it’s a very, very solid case. The iPad feels good and secure in it in both landscape and portrait positions.
— It’s the first iPad stand I’ve seen that seems equally capable as a desk and portable stand. That’s a very nice feature.
None to speak of.
I had high hopes for this stand, and I have not been at all disappointed. This is my new favorite iPad stand, the one I’m using every day on my desk, and one that I feel happy about taking out and about as well.
It’s great looking, very well designed, and uniquely versatile.
