Stopped using an iPad case
Is it just me or do the iPad cases end up feeling clunky and annoying during extended use? I never use my case anymore, I throw it on if I'm putting my iPad in my backpack, but everywhere else, I just use it vanilla. Well, I have a ZAGG leather skin on the back and screen protector, but it's not like a case still. I have a leather book style case, that flips open or props the iPad up at an angle for typing.
Anyone else starting to feel like their case is just annoying? Even useless?

I have never used any kind of case for my device. I do have the smart cover but mostly because it provides good grip when carrying the iPad and for the stand functions.
Never protector as I believe the best experience is to use it as it was built.

I have a yaobao that holds it in various positions, I use it because it is so darn helpful as a stand not because it is a case.
I got an incipio feather for it when it wasn't in that but the thing cracked right away, I feel like that was a waste of money.

When I first got my first gen iPad I never used a case, because it was so gorgeous I didn't want to cover it. It quickly gained scratches on the back of the case and even a scratch on the screen (ugh), so since then, unless I'm syncing it (I use the iPad dock), I keep it in the black Apple iPad case.

I constantly waste money on cases for my iPad, just looking for the perfect 'one'. I've yet to find it. Like you, I prefer it completely naked.
Were the Smart Cover more perfectly executed, I would still be using that.
I have one scratch on my iPad, but that was due to my own stupidity by setting something on the screen. Through day to day use, I've yet to scratch the back or anywhere else.

Yea I personally hate cases so I opted to just get the smart cover for home use and then I'm going to get a sleeve when I need to take it to school. Other than that I love devices being how they were built.

I used hard shell case for my iPad2 and it was really burning my hands. I guess the plastic it was made of was of some bad quality. I am saying you need to protect your device if you dont want it get scratched quickly but it may be multiple try before you will find THAT one.

A Bweasel iPad stand should be considered.
I developed a very functional stand called a Bweasel that only weighs 3oz. and attaches to the iPad. When attached, it is small enough to stow in a soft sleeve. The Bweasel supports the iPad at any angle in either landscape or portrait position. With the Bweasel, the iPad is very easey to use while standing and also very convenient to use in bed. The Bweasel for the iPad 1 is currently selling for $29.99 but will be reduced this week to $24.99 in preparation for the introduction of a Bweasel stand for the iPad 2 which is expected to be available later next week. The Bweasel for the iPad 2 will be priced at $24.99 for the first 30 days and then be priced at $29.99. For more information and video search bweasel iPad stand

I got two small scratches the first week so have been looking for perfect case with good protection, good feel. For serious traveling, I got the Maroo for security elements including hand strap and bumper system but a bit bulky for every day. My CoverBuddy from SwitchEasy came last week and I LOVE it. Matches my pink smart cover perfectly, nice feel, little bulk or weight. Fine for around house or in purse.
